NCIS boss teases huge change for beloved characters as season finale approaches

NCIS boss Steven D. Binder has teased a huge change for beloved characters Dr. Jimmy Palmer and Special Agent Jessica Knight in the penultimate episode of the series, which airs on 15 May.

Chatting to TV Insider, the executive producer revealed that the on-screen couple, played by Brian Dietzen and Katrina Law, will see their relationship thrown into the spotlight.

He said: “We’ve been slow-rolling Jimmy and Knight’s relationship, and part of that is because Knight just doesn’t want to bring it to the office. But in the second to last episode, a facet of it lands in the office with a big loud thud, and you see our characters reacting to it.

“It’s time for it to go to the next level; let’s put it that way. And it’s going to go there.”

Jimmy and Knight’s relationship is headed for change

The full synopsis for the episode, titled ‘Kompromat’, reads: “NCIS must investigate a string of Russian spy encounters that may be linked to a suspicious m****r; Jimmy accidentally makes a confession that could change the course of his relationship with Knight.”

Fans of the show have been rooting for the couple ever since they first confessed their feelings for one another in a major moment at the end of season 19.

The two characters have shared some emotional moments over the series, including when Jimmy confessed that he was still struggling with the d***h of his wife, Breena, and was finding it difficult to integrate Jessica into his daughter, Victoria’s life.

Although the NCIS season 20 finale is fast approaching and will air on May 22, along with the NCIS: Hawai’i season two finale, the show won’t be away from our screens for too long as CBS announced its renewal back in February.

Sadly, NCIS: Los Angeles will not be returning after its 14th season and will conclude with a two-part finale. The first installment will be broadcast at 10 pm on Sunday 14 May, with the second half at 9 pm on 21 May.

The second episode will be followed by an hour-long special, titled ‘A Salute to NCIS: Los Angeles’, which will be hosted by Kevin Frazier, who is known for co-hosting Entertainment Tonight. Fans will be treated to old and new interviews with the cast members and plenty of behind-the-scenes footage from the last 14 years in the farewell special.
