In the CBS drama’s first episode of 2018 — titled “High Tide” and airing Tuesday, Jan. 2 at 8/7 — Torres (played by Wilmer Valderrama in his best Jughead Jones sherpa jacket) and Bishop (Emily Wickersham) pose as a criminal couple available for hire, as part of a sting operation tracking illegal drug-running out of the Norfolk civilian marina.

Will the not-unattractive twosome be able to keep things strictly professional while posting as lovebirds? Or will their act “escalate” to evoke a fraction of the frothy goodness as when Tony and Ziva passed themselves off as a married assassins (in the aforementioned “Under Covers” episode)? Check out the photos above and below and get in your best guess.
