While are looking forward to seeing the relationship blossom, the happiness could be shortlived.

Showrunner Steven D Binder provided hints about the upcoming instalment and suggested Jimmy and Jessica could be in for some hardship.

He shared: “There are hesitations that they’re going to have, based on their personalities per se.

“There’s a lot to explore when you get down with a microscope and look at the minutia of how a relationship develops — the tentativeness, the awkwardness, how Jimmy’s been out of the game for a while, how you imagine Knight has been all over the game.”

Steven added: “We’re really trying to break it apart and explore the fun of each moment, I’ve been calling it ‘the season of love,’”

“So we may see a bunch of things happening, with a bunch of our characters,” he told TV Line.
NCIS will premiere with a major crossover with NCIS Hawaii, which will see many of the agents meet each other for the first time.

NCIS will premiere with a major crossover with NCIS Hawaii, which will see many of the agents meet each other for the first time.

As a result, there’s a chance that either Jessica or Jimmy could be swayed by someone from the Hawaiian team, especially given Binder’s latest quotes regarding Ernie (Jason Antoon).

Binder has warned fans to “keep an eye on Jimmy and Ernie” as they “both have a fascination with Agent Knight”.
Could this be the showrunner’s way of hinting at a possible love triangle between the three of them?
Will Ernie also share his romantic feelings for Knight in season 20, perhaps throwing a spanner in the works of her budding bond with Jimmy?

This will mark the second crossover between the two shows as the first one took place in March.

It followed Special Agent in Charge Jane Tennant (Vanessa Lachey) who invited Agent Nick Torres (Wilmer Valderrama) to take a look at a new development in an old case.

The upcoming crossover will be on the 20th season premiere for NCIS, while the episode will be NCIS Hawaii’s season two premiere.

Thankfully for fans, NCIS released a synopsis of the episode which read: “Following the cliffhanger season 19 finale, with Special Agent Alden Parker (Gary Cole) still on the run with his ex-wife Vivian (Teri Polo).
“The team investigates who from his past might have a personal vendetta against him in hopes of clearing Parker’s name.

“Enlisting the help of Special Agent Jane Tennant and computer specialist Ernie Malick, who are in town meeting with director Leon Vance (Rocky Carroll) in preparation for a global military exercise, the group tracks down their prime suspect, The Raven.”

As for NCIS Hawaii, its synopsis reads: “Tennant’s team, along with NCIS agents Nick Torres and Jessica Knight, track The Raven’s whereabouts to the island of Oahu and learn about his plans to attack RIMPAC (The Rim of the Pacific Exercises), the world’s largest international maritime warfare exercise.”

NCIS season 20 premieres on Monday, September 19 on CBS in the USA. A UK release date is yet to be announced.
