While only DiNozzo makes a return in the Ducky tribute episode of NCIS Season 21, Episode 2, titled “The Stories We Leave Behind,” the show still pays homage to the character’s legacy by recognizing the individuals he closely collaborated with during his time as the medical examiner-turned-historian. Originally, the writers had planned to bring back numerous old characters for Ducky’s funeral, but logistical challenges hindered this plan. Nevertheless, the episode effectively evokes nostalgia through flashbacks, providing a heartfelt tribute while mourning the loss of the beloved team member.

As McGee and Alden Parker delve into Ducky’s final case, a crucial clue is discovered in a secret safe hidden behind one of Dr. Mallard’s office photos. These photos feature various iterations of the active roster over the years, including the original cast with Cait and the latest lineup led by Parker. However, the vault is situated behind a photo depicting Gibbs, DiNozzo, McGee, Palmer, Ziva David, Abby, Leon Vance, and Ducky, subtly suggesting that they represent NCIS’ finest ensemble.
