First it was Cote de Pable aka Ziva David. Then it was Anthony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) that left. He's went on to star on the CBS series "Bull". We wondered what it would be like without those two characters. Now it's Forensic Specialist Abby Sciuto. She's moving on after 15 years, and now I'm sad.

How are we going to make it watching "NCIS" and not having Abby there to find the clues and come up with a solution for McGee or Gibbs? It just doesn't seem right that Pauley Perrette is riding off in the sunset.

But Perrette is nothing like her character on the show...well, almost nothing like her.
