During NCIS Season 17, Episode 15, we see Jimmy Palmer (Brian Deitzen) hit a snag in his relationship together with his spouse, Breena. As you doubtless know by now, NCIS not often mentions one thing only for filler. There’s normally significance behind small particulars talked about in every episode. We hope we’re unsuitable, but it surely seems like one thing unhealthy is likely to be brewing in Jimmy and Breena’s marriage. Here’s why Jimmy and Breena’s relationship might be headed for hassle.

Jimmy and Breena deliberate a romantic getaway for Valentine’s Day

In season 17, episode 15 (titled “Lonely Hearts), Jimmy is in a rush to finish his job and leave the crime scene the team is investigating. Torres notices and comments on Jimmy’s behavior. He says he’s rushing because he wants to go away with his wife, Breena, for a special Valentine’s Day trip. “The in-laws have Victoria, so Breena and I are going to be going off for Valentine’s,” Jimmy explains. “She got us a hotel room. You know, after seven years of marriage, you gotta keep things fresh. You need some champagne, some chocolate-dipped strawberries…” Before Jimmy may end his thought, Gibbs interrupts him to request the time of the sufferer’s loss of life.

Later in episode 15, we study Breena and Jimmy received’t be happening that romantic journey in any case. Since Jimmy has to work additional time to assist Gibbs and the group remedy an advanced homicide case, he must keep put. “I’m so sorry this happened, my darling,” says Jimmy throughout a telephone name with Breena. “You know if I could change it I would. Just know that I love you, OK?” he provides. He later tells McGee that Breena wasn’t pleased with the change of plans. We doubt that is the primary time one thing like this has occurred. Will Jimmy and Breena’s work schedules be the loss of life of their marriage? It’s fairly potential.

The late NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg as soon as stated in
an interview with CBS that divorce
occurs on a regular basis on this business. “It’s a really irritating scenario;
careers go in several instructions,” stated Glasberg. Breena is a mortician and
Jimmy is a health worker, so that they have very hectic schedules. This doubtless
places quite a lot of pressure on their relationship.

Work has been irritating for Jimmy

Work is beginning to eat Jimmy and devour his time. During
NCIS season 17, episode 13, (titled “Sound Off”), he’s clearly overwhelmed.
At the start of the episode, he enters the realm the place Torres, Bishop, and
McGee are sitting and vents about how exhausted he’s. “Can I just vent?” asks Jimmy.
“Dr. Mallard retired. And ever since he turned the official NCIS historian I
have been doing the work of two folks.” Now that Jimmy is the one medical
examiner, your entire workload is his. Ducky retired and is now the NCIS historian,
so Palmer should deal with instances on his personal.

Is Jimmy bringing his work stress house every night time? The strain
at work may trigger him to develop into much less current and fewer emotionally out there
to Breena. Perhaps the rationale they deliberate this Valentine’s Day journey was so
they may reconnect and restore the toll their jobs have been taking up their
marriage. Now that the chance was misplaced due to Jimmy’s schedule, issues
may start to go downhill from right here.
