And I repeat: Stop reading if you don’t want a major November sweeps plot twist ruined. Everyone else, onward and downward…

A main character is going to have a nasty and potentially lethal run-in with a deadly weapon!

“The shocking shooting opens a door to the past,” teases executive producer Shane Brennan, “[and] explains a relationship which has kept fans guessing for several seasons.”

Some additional clues:

* The team member in question is Tony. Or McGee. Or Vance. Or Ziva. One of those four.

* The shooting (and its aftermath) serves as the centerpiece of a special two-part episode airing Nov. 16 and 23.

* I’ll narrow the list of possible victims to three in this week’s Ask Ausiello.

Let the speculation begin in the comments section!
