NCIS season 18 episode 11 photo: What is Torres doing?

NCISIf you love all things NCISthen you know already that there’s a lot to be excited for moving forward on the series. There’s also a lot to be nervous about — take, for example, how long Gibbs is going to be away from the team!

For the sake of this particular article, we’re putting the focus on one subject in particular: What Nick Torres and Ellie Bishop seem to be up to. The photo above is one of many from “Gut Punch” (airing a week from Tuesday), and it shows Wilmer Valderrama and Emily Wickersham’s characters seemingly interrupting a speech at some grand shindig.

So what sort of shindig are we talking about here? It’s clearly a fancy-enough one that there is champagne present. We also think that it may be connected to a case.

When “Gut Punch” starts, you are going to be seeing Bishop, Torres, and McGee all working compliance duty — basically, safety precautions due to the virus. This could be a punishment they’re incurring after lying for Gibbs on the most-recent episode, but somewhere along the way here they are (of course) going to run into a case. Will they be able to do their jobs without help from Mark Harmon’s character? This is clearly something that the writers are making us wonder for the time being, and we’ll see where things start to settle. Gibbs’ storyline may certainly not be one that gets resolved within a single hour.
