Make of this clip what you will — Cote de Pablo's exit from "NCIS" -- but it seems sufficiently vague to not lead one to any conclusions.

As you are aware, de Pablo will end her run on "NCIS" next season. It's a puzzling departure, and when asked why at the recent press tour, CBS chief Leslie  Moonves said the decision was hers alone. She will be phased out over a number of episodes — no exact number given — and then, exit, stage right. TV's biggest drama returns Sept. 24.
