There are a lot of pieces to put back together in the new season of NCIS — literally and figuratively. Need proof? Check out this exclusive first photo from the show’s upcoming tenth season.

Abby (Pauley Perrette), who we last saw getting tackled by Gibbs right before a bomb rocked NCIS HQ, is seen looking a little dazed — and who can blame her? Look at the destruction behind her! (Photo after jump.)

But if you think the action stops with the bomb, you’re surely mistaken, according to executive producer Gary Glasberg. “It literally picks up two hours after the explosion, and it’s an action-packed episode of television. I packed a lot in there,” he says. “It’s an emotional roller coaster, and it’s all about the manhunt for Harper Dearing (Richard Schiff). It gets really personal between Gibbs and Dearing.”

NCIS returns Sept. 25.
