Welcome, Ray! Cote de Pablo Previews Arrival of Ziva's Boyfriend

at . Comments

Enrique Murciano debuts on the April 5 episode of NCIS as the character viewers have been clamoring to meet: Ziva's CIA boyfriend, Ray.

What can we expect when he stops by? Cote de Pablo tells Entertainment Weekly there will be a special candlelight dinner and...

"There’s kissing involved. We kept it light and we kept it fun, and we kept it like two people who are genuinely in to each other and wanting to move things along. It’s about what’s going on between the lines. These two people are touchy-feely, and that’s different for Ziva.”

Of course, this won't be a drama-free reunion for the couple.

"[Ziva] discovers that he has a little secret that he hasn’t told her that has to do with the port-to-port killer case," de Pablo says. "It throws everything up in the air, and it causes a lot of friction between them and a big blow out."

Tony won't react well to the presence of Ray, the actress teases, warning of a "really interesting scene in the bathroom."

But enough about next week. We know what many fans want: NCIS season finale details! Sorry, de Pablo has few. She can only guess the following:

“We know that it has something to do with the port-to-port killer. We know that something awful is gonna go down, like always. And we’re all deathly terrified."
