The Worst
Abby Sciuto
Abigail "Abby" Sciuto (Pauley Perrette), the peppy forensic scientist on "NCIS," has brought humor and a unique sense of style to her job, spawning a fanbase who still sometimes yearns for her return. Abby had several long-term storylines on "NCIS," but not all were popular with viewers.
In the Season 5 episode titled "Dog Tags," the team is attacked by a dog accused of murdering his handler, who happens to work at a nearby naval air station. Abby adopts the dog, whom she nicknames "Jethro" after her boss, Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon), and becomes obsessed with proving the dog's innocence.
Instead of being the engaging, quirky experience we're used to from Abby, "Dog Tags" makes her look inconsistent, as she puts the dog's needs over the needs of her colleagues. The result is an episode that's not exactly Abby's best storyline.
