Talk about a comeback! With two back to back banger of episodes, 'NCI' Season 18 sure did kick start its winter premiere in style. On one hand, there's McGee's wife Delilah making a guest appearance in Episode 4 'Sunburn'. On the other hand, the ever twisting mystery of Tobia Fornell's target continues in Episode 5, 'Head of the Snake'. But as if their drama wasn't enough, the next episode '1mm' throws Eleanor Bishop and Nick Torres's budding romance in for a dark spin. Ellick and Torres-Bishop fans are in for a treat in the upcoming sixth episode. Read on to find out when you can see the misadventures in love.

After shutting shop all the way back on December 8, 2020, 'NCIS' Season 18 finally returned on January 19, with Episodes 4 and 5. The upcoming Episode 6 '1mm' will air, thankfully in just a short week's time on next Tuesday, January 26, at its regular 8 pm time slot only on CBS. According to the official synopsis of the episode: "Following a tip about smuggled weapons, Bishop and Torres engage in a shootout in a former sheriff's residence that's now a historical site, only to find themselves locked in abandoned jail cells there."

Since Season 17's alt-reality time period where Bishop and Torres flirted, but not as their own selves, speculation was rife about their budding relationship. The Season 17 finale solidified those speculations by showing Bishop tormented following Torres getting shot on duty. Season 18 hasn't quite presented them in a bowl as an item yet, but his episode has all the right kind of thriller vibe going to make up for a juicy romance plotline. 

Of course, we come for the action and expert crime-solving, but fandoms are invested in the relationship arcs for good reason too. And for those that aren't into them so much, Episode 4 'Sunburn' sees "McGee and his wife Delilah's Bahamian vacation turns into a high-stakes mission when a case NCIS is tracking of a dead escape room manager has ties to the island. Also, Gibbs fears the worst when his search for Fornell leads to blood." And Episode 5 follows it up with: "Gibbs and Fornell's crusade to find the head of the drug ring responsible for Fornell's daughter Emily's overdose comes to a climax. Also, Gibbs and Vance finally let the team in on a case that has dangerous implications."

'NCIS' Season 18 airs on Tuesdays at 8 pm only on CBS.
