Valderrama told TV Insider Torres may have difficulty seeing Sloane leave after she proved herself to be a loyal ally in recent years.
When asked about Sloane’s exit, he said: “I will tell you that if that event [Sloane’s exit] really does happen, it’s going to be interesting for Torres,”
“Because he’s learned to lean on them [Sloane and Gibbs] for different things, and he’s learned a lot from them.
“I think you’re going to see a more vulnerable Torres, and he’s not going to like it.”
NCIS season 18 is predicted to air on CBS in late-2020.
