"NCIS" aired its 300th episode on Tuesday, as it figures out how to say good-bye to Michael Weatherly's Agent Tony DiNizzo two years after losing another of its most popular characters, Agent Ziva David played by Cote de Pablo.

De Pablo departed "NCIS" in 2014, appearing in a couple of episodes in Season 11, according to TV Line. CBS president Glenn Geller seemed to down play a potential guest appearance by de Pablo when another popular star of the show, Michael Weatherly, leaves at the end of this season, said E! News.

Weatherly's character was the love interest of de Pablo's character , and played a prominent role on the character's exit from the show back in 2014.

When asked in January about de Pablo's return for Weatherly's exit, Geller said, "not currently." 

"They are working on how Michael's character is going to be written out," Geller said. "Gary (Glasberg, executive producer) and the producers are working on that right now."

Tuesday's show, titled "Scoop," attracted 14.8 million viewers and a 2.0 rating in a competitive Tuesday night lineup with other networks, according to Variety.

The episode tackled the difficult issued of post-traumatic stress syndrome, starring actor Taye Diggs as a Marine suffering from PTSD, noted CBS. It also featured an appearance by the MusiCorps Band, part of a music rehabilitation program for wounded veterans based at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D.C.,said Parade magazine.

"We were blown away by what they do, and what they accomplish, and how they work, and we decided that we wanted to build a story around it, so we came up with a story that involves a sniper played by Taye Diggs," Glasberg told Parade.

Mark Harmon, who plays "NCIS's" lead character Jethro Gibbs, told Contact Music that the 300th episode is one of the show's best.

"We have certain episodes that make the hair on the back of your neck stand up when you close that last page," Harmon said. "This is one of those. It's a case-driven episode, a story that drives this team to do what they do best."
