NCIS season 20 theory: Torres to die as team faces never-before-seen mission in new promo

NCIS agent Nick Torres is in another heap of trouble as the latest promo teases an unprecedented murder case for the team.
Special Agent Nicolas Torres (played by Wilmer Valderrama) has become one of the most hot-headed members of the NCIS team in recent years, and his reckless approach to missions could eventually become his downfall. Could new team leader Alden Parker (Gary Cole) be on the lookout for another field agent when the CBS drama returns from yet another gripping case next week?
Torres is caught by surprise in the latest thrilling teaser for next week’s edition of NCIS.
In the third episode of season 20, Unearth, the team are faced with yet another baffling m***r mystery.

This time, Dr Jimmy Palmer (Brian Dietzen) and the agents are left baffled when they find a body filled with large stones.

“That’s certainly a first,” Palmer utters when he examines one of the strange objects in the new promo.


A synopsis for Unearth reads: “When a dead body is found at an ancient burial site that is thought to be cursed, the team tries to determine the motive and the symbolism behind the c***e.

“Also, as Torres continues therapy with Dr Grace, he discovers that their lives are in danger.”

While fans will be fascinated by the latest investigation, it’s Torres’ predicament which could send up red flags during next week’s episode.

This episode will be the first time viewers will see Dr Grace Confalone this season (Laura San Giacomo) after her introduction in season 19.


Unfortunately, Torres’ progress with therapy will have to be cut short when he realises they’re both being targeted.

There hasn’t been any word on Wilmer’s exit from the series just yet, but could this be the way viewers have to say goodbye to another fan-favourite agent?

In the trailer, Parker warns: “We have a country’s national treasure to recover.”

The clip then cuts to Torres hunching over Dr Confalone, who appears to be unconscious.
He checks her pulse, but it’s not yet confirmed whether she’s alive or d**d.
As he remains knelt on the floor, the agent reaches for his gun but is taken by surprise by an unseen assailant.

It may be time for Torres to hand in his NCIS badge if he’s starting to let his guard down like this.

Torres’ gun is kicked out of his hand, but the trailer cuts away before the result of the fight is revealed.
So far, it’s unclear how Dr Confalone connects to the stolen artefacts, but she could be a pawn in the mastermind’s plan to smuggle treasure inside dead bodies.

Thankfully, Torres is already on the case, although his foe may have gotten enough of an upper hand to take the agent out for good.

The series has yet to indicate Torres’ d***h or departure this season, though he could also potentially be injured badly enough in the scuffle to grant him some time off away from the field.

Hopefully, this isn’t the end for the impulsive agent, though viewers will certainly be watching with bated breath when the next episode rolls around.

NCIS season 20 continues Mondays on CBS in the USA. A UK release date is yet to be announced.
