In a recent interview with TV Insider, Reasonover spoke about her big performance in season 17, episode six (“Institutionalized”). We get to see a lot more of Kasie than we’re used to, so this will be a treat if you’re a fan of the character. In this episode, Kasie’s best friend is accused of murder. Reasonover said this was a very emotional episode. “[It’s a] big, huge emotional roller coaster,” she tells the publication.

Would Reasonover be open to her character getting into a romantic relationship? In her TV Insider interview, the actress shared her thoughts on the possibility of Kasie coupling up with someone. “I would like to see eventually a love interest. I’d be interested to see what her type is,” said Reasonover. Will Kasie be one half of the next Ziva and Tony? Reasonover told TV Insider about an earlier episode that contained a flirtation between Kasie and Terry Kemper (played by actor Devan Long) that was cut. (Terry played the lead evidence custodian in season 17, episode four, titled “Someone Else’s Shoes.”) Maybe there’s hope for a little love in Kasie’s life.

There has also been a lot of buzz around Bishop and Torres and Gibbs and Sloane. In season 17, episode five, we see a bit of flirtation between Bishop and Torres. After Torres is accidentally hypnotized, he writes what appears to be a love letter to Bishop. Torres asks Bishop what’s in the letter, but she refuses to tell him, hinting that it contains something romantic. The “NCIS” producers have been hinting at a possible relationship between these two, but they’re not sure about the timing.

Another potential couple is Gibbs and Sloane. Actress Maria Bello says she would enjoy playing Gibbs’ love interest. During an interview with “Entertainment Tonight Canada,” Bello spoke about Sloane and Gibbs’ almost relationship. She says there’s a bit of tension between the two characters. “I really love Gibbs and Sloane’s energy together. I think we have found something so fun over the last couple of years. You can tell they really deeply care about each other but they also want to bang each other? You know what I mean?” joked Bello. She then added that she was kidding (we’re not so sure about that, but we’ll just take her word for it). “I’m kidding; I don’t know if it’s that… There’s definitely a tension there that people are picking up on that’s really nice, and we’re really good friends and care about each other—our characters anyway, you know?”

“NCIS” airs Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time on CBS.
