NCIS 2021: Fans baffled by 'plot hole' in Torres and Bishop season 18 capture scene

While a second fan added: “Emergency calls still need reception. They just use all providers, not just yours.”

The episode in question may have provided some convenient excuses, this fan was right to point out NCIS’s particularly flimsy excuse to finally get the fan favourite couple some time alone.

Thankfully, most fans were more concerned with Bishop and Torres’ exhilarating yet fleeting moment of intimacy.

Season 18 is currently taking a short break, but it’s hoped the agents can finally start developing their will-they-won’t-they romance when the series returns next month.

NCIS season 18 continues Tuesday, April 6 on CBS.
