The following contains spoilers for NCIS: Hawai’i Season 2, Episode 22, “Dies Irae,” which premiered May 22, on CBS.

NCIS: Hawai’i ended Season 2 on a high note. SAC Jane Tennant’s CIA days came back to haunt her, and she had to go out of country to make good on a mistake from her past. Although she wanted to fly solo, it took help from her team, Whistler and Charlie 1 to solve the case and catch the bad guy. Additionally, NCIS: LA’s Sam Hanna conveniently showed up out of nowhere to provide some much-needed backup.

Before leaving, Hanna made it clear that he would always be willing to give Tenant a helping hand. That comment sounded like a hint, and it turned out that it was. Shortly after the finale, NCIS: Hawai’i announced that LL Cool J would be joining the cast for Season 3. He’s been tabbed as a recurring guest star, but exactly what his role will look like is anyone’s guess. One thing is clear, though, NCIS: Hawai’i should avoid a relationship between him and Tennant.
