NCIS has seemingly set Bishop (Emily Wickersham) and Torres (Wilmer Valderrama) up to be the next "Tiva," and the two are going to get awfully close in the February 18 episode.

But it's not exactly what it appears to be. Rather, for an investigation into the suicide of a retired Navy officer who left a rare, valuable (and possibly stolen) coin to the National Museum of the Navy, the team imagines themselves in his life story to piece together how he ended up with that coin.

Exec producers Frank Cardea and Steven D. Binder also tease an arc they've been building towards.

Click through the gallery above for a look at the team in the officer's life story in "Ephemera," including Bishop and Torres cozying up to one another in their roles. (Have they been cast in a tragic love story?)
