How Jessica
Knight Replacing
Ellie Bishop On
NCIS Sparked A
Eureka Moment
“NCIS” fans and viewers are still in the relatively early stages of familiarizing themselves with Jessica Knight, as her backstory continues to unravel. However, some fans recently noticed a small detail with regard to the transition from Jessica Knight to Ellie Bishop that led to an amusing eureka moment about a connection between the two.
In a recent thread on Reddit, a fan pointed out a fun bit of wordplay layered within the names of Agent Bishop and Agent Knight. Katrina Law's Knight has replaced Emily Wickersham's Bishop on the show, just as a knight can capture a bishop in the game of chess.
Another fan suggested a theory that the names could even provide clues to the potential naming conventions of future characters. Whether the Knight-Bishop joke is a pure coincidence, a harmless bit of wordplay, or a deeper suggestion about the personalities behind each character, it's nonetheless a fun tidbit for fans to enjoy speculating about.
