The pair reluctantly embrace Kasie before the scene moves on and the pair along with Jessica Knight (Katrina Law) get to work finding Gibbs.
However, with McGee’s concern ringing in his ears, could this be a big sign Torres will contemplate stepping down?
With Bishop gone and Gibbs looking like he’ll be AWOL for much of season 19, Torres may well find himself needing a break from it all.
Plus, with McGee clearly spotting the warning signs early in the season, perhaps the 19th run will be the time Torres decides to focus on himself rather than the job.
NCIS season 19 premieres on CBS in the USA on Monday, September 20. A UK release date is yet to be announced.
