The files had been planted in the house to make it look as if Bishop had left NCIS as a disgraced agent and could then go undercover.
This did mean saying goodbye to Torres though and in a heartfelt moment, they shared a kiss before Bishop walked away.
Fans weren’t sure if this was just part of a bigger storyline that would see Bishop later return to our screens but Wickersham has since spoken out about her exit.
Taking to Instagram, the Bishop actress wrote: “Hangin this hat and jacket up. What a great ride it’s been.
“This cast, this crew, are top-notch. I can’t say enough kind words about this group that I’ve had the pleasure of working with for close to 8 years now and 172 episodes later.
“This business is finicky and weird and consistency is a rarity.”
