'NCIS' Season 15: Can Gibbs Escape Rebel Captors? Torres Being Blamed for Mission Fiasco?
Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and Timothy McGee (Sean Murray) are still trapped in the Paraguayan jungle when “NCIS” Season 15 premieres on September 26. They were left fighting an elusive band of rebels and Nick Torres (Wilmer Valderrama) will not stop until he finds them.
The three NCIS agents went to Paraguay to search for a missing SEAL last season. He was in the jungle and was about to rescue a group of young boys from the mercenaries. One of the boys was the son of a person the Seal cared about. While, Gibbs and McGee held the flank, Torres was the pilot of their getaway helicopter.
The rebels were about to catch up with them and Gibbs had no choice but to order Torres to leave without them. Spoilers for “NCIS” Season 15 indicate that even if he ordered to do so, Torres will not help to feel guilty. He is determined to do everything to find his beleaguered teammates reports Parade.
Meanwhile, the rest of the NCIS team would also want to know what really happened to Gibbs and McGee. Even if they avoid putting all the blame on Torres, some of them may still think that he should have not left the two in rebel hands in a foreign country according to Cartermatt.
The “NCIS” Season 15 premiere will take off two months after last season’s finale. EP Frank Cardea revealed that those two months are going to change Gibbs a little bit. “He’ll still be the Gibbs we love, but he’s going to be slightly different,” he said.
Torres, too, will be different when fans see him next in “NCIS” Season 15. According to Cardea, he will become less of the solo undercover agent that he was when he first joined the team. It was revealed that Torres and NCIS Director Leon Vance (Rocky Carroll) will be summoned to a congressional hearing regarding the fallout from the Paraguayan mission.
