During NCIS Season 17, episode 16, we see Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and Sloane (Maria Bello) get nearer. It seems to be like issues may lastly be heating up between these two. During this episode, Sloane receives a field of chocolate and a dozen roses for Valentine’s Day. She doesn’t know who gave her the sweet and roses, so she walks across the workplace and shares her surprising deal with with the staff.

At one level, Gibbs passes by Sloane’s desk and says, ‘Nice Valentine.’ Sloane then gives him some sweet. Gibbs takes one and kisses Sloane on the cheek. They’re turning into extra comfy with one another and it appears to be a matter of time earlier than they get entangled romantically. Although the attraction between Sloane and Gibbs is rising, it doesn’t appear to be this may be a smart love connection in the long term.

Sloane all the time appears to be attempting to save lots of Gibbs. Whenever he’s having some sort of non-public issue, she’s proper by his aspect, attempting to make all of it higher. For instance, when Gibbs was attempting to course of all the pieces that occurred with Phineas and his mom Sarah (season 17, episode 11), Sloane known as to check out him and was even ready outdoors of his residence, prepared to supply consolation. Sloane is a caring particular person (she is a psychologist, in any case) but when she will get romantically concerned with Gibbs, she won’t be capable to flip this off. She may stay in “savior” mode as a result of she’s so accustomed to interacting with Gibbs this fashion.

2. They work collectively

Sloane doesn’t report on to Gibbs, however they nonetheless work for a similar company. Sure, loads of {couples} meet at work and have profitable relationships, however many instances an workplace romance doesn’t work out. If issues between them bitter, they’ll nonetheless must see one another at work. This may make for some very awkward encounters.

There has been a path of damaged hearts on NCIS. No
one can appear to remain in a contented relationship
(up to now, McGee and Palmer appear to be OK, however that might change at any second).
As we’ve talked about earlier than, somebody dies, or the couple breaks up. Gibbs
most likely has the worst monitor file in relation to relationships.

During season 17, episode 10, Gibbs’ friend even refers to
him as a “lone wolf,” and says this appears to be working for him. Gibbs says
that isn’t all the time true, however we expect he’s most likely higher off by himself. We’d
hate to see him date Sloane just for her to be left heartbroken or lifeless.
