“NCIS: Hawai’i” started filming last week, and one cast member’s Instagram post hints that “NCIS” star Wilmer Valderrama might have been in attendance.
CarterMatt noted how “NCIS: Hawai’i” star Vanessa Lachey posted an interesting tidbit in her caption when she announced Season 2 starting to film.
“Season 2 @ncishawaiicbs starts filming TODAY!!! Who’s ready!?! Swipe for the premiere date! We are starting out with a bang (hint hint: 🧨#TNT) #NCISHawaii,” Lachey captioned her post.
That last section, specifically the #TNT, could potentially be referencing Nick Torres. Last season, when Valderrama’s character appeared on a crossover episode, he and Lachey’s Jane Tennant came up with the nickname TNT to represent “Tennant and Torres.” Could it be a coincidence that Lachey now mentions it as a “hint?”
Of course, the hint could just allude to the fact that we’ll see some actual explosives in the premiere episode. But considering “NCIS” doesn’t start filming until later this summer, it’s totally plausible that Valderrama could drop in for a crossover episode in Hawai’i. He also liked Lachey’s post, meaning he could be in on the joke or just wants to support his friend.
We’ll have to shelve further theories until some kind of trailer or teaser drops in the next few months. But “NCIS” and “NCIS: Hawai’i” return on Monday, September 19, on CBS.
