This article contains spoilers for season 17, episode 6 'Institutionalized'

Right at the end of tonight's episode of 'NCIS' season 17 aka episode 6 titled 'Institutionalised', it was revealed that while everybody had been so extra busy solving cases, Agent Nick Torres has managed to indulge in a little romance away from the team. And that teeny tiny bit of teasing has resulted in a lot of complaints from fans.

First of all, they are pretty heated that the romantic interest isn't Agent Ellie Bishop. as one fan so blatantly shared through a tweet, "WHY IS TORRES DATING SOMEONE THAT'S NOT ELLIE?" And if the all-caps rage isn't enough to assert how wrong this new interest looks to fans, others chimed in about the way it was all revealed. At the end of the episode, Torres took a call where he talked about going to "see someone" and there was a definite mention of a "date". Picking up on that, a fan tweeted: "It better be Therapy Torres!"

But for the rest of the fandom, it was about how articulate the little hint was positioned in the episode. Commenting on the nature of the teasing, a fan wrote: "UM... excuse me #NCIS ... How y'all gonna drop those crumbs and not tell us who Torres is talking about? I have a suspicion it's NOT a romantic interest."

Speaking for the entire fandom in unison, a raging fan shared: "YOU MEAN TO TELL ME TORRES IS SEEING SOMEONE THAT ISNT BISHOP??? ALL YALL CANCELLED NCIS." This was in the list of other reactions with plenty of broken-heart emojis, as an Ellick fan rightfully shared their dubiousness: "Is Torres really seeing someone?? Ugh!!"

It's a sad day for Ellick fans - the moniker standing for the ship name Ellie and Nick which has managed to reign the prospective couple goals sphere for quite a while now! We just have to wait for a whole week to find out who this mystery person is. 

'NCIS' season 17 airs on Tuesdays at 8pm only on CBS.
