This week’s episode of CBS’ “NCIS” won’t be just about the case of the week. Rather, Gibbs’ team is going to solve one very important and interesting mystery: Who is Bishop dating?
NCIS Agent Eleanor “Ellie” Bishop (Emily Wickersham) has broken rule number 12 and now fans are going to learn the identity of the agent who is currently wooing her. Wickersham spoke to TVLine about her character’s mystery man, “No, I had known for a little while who [the man dating Bishop] it was going to be, but I didn’t know how the storyline was going to unfold.”
The team is going to get to the bottom of this mystery and no one is more invested in finding the identity of Bishop’s new love than forensic specialist Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette). She even makes a visual presentation in “NCIS” Season 14, episode 8!
Joining Abby in solving this mystery is Bishop’s three brothers who surprise her at Thanksgiving.
Of course, most discerning “NCIS” fans will quickly realize that there are only two contenders for Bishop’s heart: Nick Torres (Wilmer Valderrama) and MI6 Officer Duane Henry (Clayton Reeves). Wickersham confirmed that these two characters are the prime suspects when she said, “I watched bits and pieces, but I didn’t want to butt in too much. Their stuff with Torres (Wilmer Valderrama) and Reeves (Duane Henry) – I cannot wait to see.”
However, evidence indicates that out of the two handsome hunks, it’s Duane Henry who has started dating Bishop. Wickersham told TVGuide, “It’s someone who Bishop has had a strong friendship with for a while, so I liked that aspect to it. And ... I don’t think anyone will really expect it, because it’s not someone who’s really been around all that much.”
The only cast member that hasn’t “been around all that much” is Reeves.
“NCIS” Season 14 premieres a Thanksgiving-themed episode Tuesday, Nov. 22 at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
