List of Appearances

Eleanor "Ellie" Bishop was an analyst for the National Security Agency. She was assigned a joint duty assignment with NCIS and later became a probationary NCIS Special Agent.



Eleanor Bishop was born in Oklahoma, growing with an unnamed father and mother and three unnamed older brothers.

Most of her background remains a mystery although at some point, she applied to join NCIS before joining the NSA instead. When Bishop began her employment at the NSA, she was a deployed analyst assigned to the Middle East. Her mission was preemptive terror analysis-- to predict and pinpoint who the up-and-coming players were. Bishop was the first analyst to recognized terrorist Benham Parsa as a threat.

During her time at the NSA, she also wrote a paper in which she theorized about how a high-profile government target could become an unwitting mole if given an inconspicuous item that had a bug in it.

NCIS Season 11

Bishop made her debut in the Season 11 episode, Gut Check (episode) where she met the NCIS Major Case Response Team led by Leroy Jethro Gibbs. He came to the NSA for help after Bishop's mole theory became a reality, with SECNAV Sarah Porter having been found to be carrying a bugged pen during a highly classified meeting in MTAC.

After the case was solved, Gibbs offered Bishop the opportunity to join his team in a joint duty assignment, which she accepted.

Bishop proved to be a huge help to the team in the Season 11 episode, Devil's Triad (episode). She saved Tobias Fornell's young daughter Emily Fornell who had been kidnapped.

In Monsters and Men (episode), Bishop led the search for elusive terrorist Benham Parsa. It was later revealed that she was to be Parsa's final victim before he committed suicide. However, Gibbs got into the room just in time and shot Parsa dead, saving Bishop's life.

After the case had been closed, Bishop was granted the right to become an NCIS Special Agent and thus became the new "Probie" of the team.

In the episode Bulletproof (episode), Bishop was shot during a gunfight, but she survived thanks to her working NCIS bulletproof vest.
