In Season 20 of NCIS, the popular crime drama series has taken a different approach to romance by actually showcasing it. The show's penultimate episode, titled "Kompromat," is set to air on May 15 and promises to delve deeper into the relationship between Dr. Jimmy Palmer, played by Brian Dietzen, and Special Agent Jessica Knight, portrayed by Katrina Law. This is exciting news for fans, who can rest assured knowing that the show has already been renewed for Season 21.
Executive producer Steven D. Binder revealed that the relationship between Jimmy and Knight has been intentionally slow-burning, primarily because Knight prefers to keep their partnership a secret in the office. However, in "Kompromat," a significant revelation made by Jimmy has the potential to change the course of their relationship. Viewers can expect to see the characters react to this revelation, and the episode will take their relationship to the next level.
The released photos from the episode give fans a glimpse into what they can expect. It appears that Special Agent Alden Parker, played by Gary Cole, will become entangled in the drama. The case for the episode revolves around a suspicious murder in the classified section of the National Archive. The team is tasked with investigating a series of Russian spy encounters that may be connected to the crime.
One of the photos shows the main team members, Torres (Wilmer Valderrama), Knight (Katrina Law), McGee (Sean Murray), and Parker, together, potentially discussing the case. Another photo features Palmer, Kasie (Diona Reasonover), and Torres, hinting at their involvement in the investigation. The pictures also suggest that Kasie might have information crucial to solving the case.
The episode looks to be high-stakes, as indicated by the presence of the MTAC (Multiple Threat Alert Center) in one of the photos. This suggests that the case is of significant importance and may have far-reaching consequences. Additionally, it remains to be seen whether Torres will offer any advice to Palmer, further adding to the suspense surrounding the storyline.
As fans eagerly anticipate the culmination of Jimmy and Knight's relationship, they can also look forward to a thrilling and suspenseful investigation. "Kompromat" promises to deliver another captivating episode of NCIS, filled with intriguing twists and turns. With the show already renewed for another season, viewers can rest assured that there will be plenty more drama and romance to come.
