As the next episode comes to its climax, Torres will seek out Gibbs (Mark Harmon) who’s currently suspended from his job.
And it’s bound to be a tearjerker as Valderrama opened up on how much of a “father figure” Gibbs has been to Torres in Miguel’s absence.
“For a time, Torres had no real direction as he was just going from mission to mission, and Gibbs gives him a family, one like he never had,” Valderrama said.
“To be honest, Gibbs in the past couple of years has been more of a father to Torres than anybody else.”
NCIS season 18 returns to CBS on Tuesday, April 27.
