CBS’ hit procedural drama NCIS Hawaii will return on Monday with a harrowing case which could leave a child without parents. After Jane Tennent (played by Vanessa Lachey) shows concern, the agent could feel compelled to adopt the youngster. 

When NCIS Hawaii first premiered in 2021, it was an instant hit with fans who were excited to see a team of agents crack down on crime with the sunny backdrop of Hawaii. 

Fans were also pleased to see Jane leading the agents, which made her the first female to be a special agent in charge, in the NCIS franchise. 

Many viewers were also able to relate to the character as she was also a single mother of two who tried to juggle her family life with a demanding career. 

There could be a new addition to her family however, after a harrowing case may leave a young boy without parents. 

The gripping trailer for Vanishing Act sees the team try and hunt down a woman who Jane reveals “has been a fugitive for 11 years”.

The action-packed clip sees the agents pull out all the stops to chase the unnamed woman as she runs through a crowd. 

As Ernie Malik (played by Jason Antoon) reads her profile to Jane and agent Lucy Tara (Yasmine Al-Bustami), he shares: “FBI arrested her for embezzlement.”

In the next clip, a frustrated Jane asks Jeese Boone (Noah Mills): “Do you think she would leave without her son?” 

It seems as though the team are stuck on how to proceed, while the young boy innocently plays with his console in the office. 

The child also appears to become annoyed with waiting as he confronts Jesse and asks: “Where’s my mum?”

This will undoubtedly be a tough case for the agents as the log line reads: “When the mother of a young boy goes missing, the NCIS team sets out to find her and learns they aren’t the only ones searching for her.”

With the FBI also looking for the woman, Jane will have no choice but to follow the law and hand her in. 

As this could leave the young boy on his own, the agent could decide to take him into her care. 

However, this could add more pressure to her strenuous family dynamics as she is already a mother to her son Alex Tennant (Kian Talan) who was struggling to deal with his parent’s divorce

Jane would also often coach her 10-year-old daughter Julie Tennant (Mahina Anne Marie Napoleon). 

It was previously revealed Alex found it hard to deal with his father’s new family and was growing tired of having to help raise his younger sister, whenever Jane had to work. 

Although it would be a good deed, a new addition could create havoc for her family, which the showrunner Christopher Silber had teased.

He said: “We wanted season one to have a happy note and this feeling of Ohana. 

“And what’s important to Jane Tennant is her family: her personal family, her work family, and in many ways, they’re one and the same.”

Christopher told TV Line: “For season two, we need to challenge that a little bit. 

“We need to see how strong that family is as we throw obstacles at it, and that’s in her personal life: dealing with a son who is coming of age and maybe leaving the nest soon.”

NCIS Hawaii season 2 is available in the US on CBS. A UK release date has yet to be announced.
