After revealing Torres’ father Miguel had abandoned his family under strange circumstances, they reunited years later after his hair was found at the scene of another grisly murder.
As the NCIS team’s latest case unfolded, Miguel eventually revealed he was forced to leave his family in Panama as he was working undercover and feared being exposed.
While Torres’ first parent introduced in the series was far from perfect, praise for guest star Steven Bauer’s performance poured in on Twitter as the episode aired on CBS.
One fan said: “Loved tonight’s ‘Sangre’ episode, but we must see Nick’s dad again. Steven Bauer was perfect: they even looked alike!”
