Lucy Tara gained an exciting opportunity during the second season. What’s next for the junior agent in NCIS: Hawaii Season 3?
NCIS: Hawaii Season 2 was a little Lucy-lite. That was due to actress Yasmine Al-Bustami having other projects that she was still involved in and the writers needing to find a way to have her missing for a few episodes.
It was a great storyline for Lucy and for the Kacy shippers, as we got to see things grow. Lucy was able to gain more experience in her work, in an area that so few would usually get a chance to. Meanwhile, the Kacy relationship grew stronger. Kate didn’t ask for Lucy to stay behind or give her an ultimatum. They made things work, and Kate was there when Lucy returned.
What could happen to Lucy in NCIS: Hawaii Season 3?
This leads us to the third season. We shouldn’t see any scheduling issues for Al-Bustami when production does get to restart. This should mean more Lucy on our screens, and hopefully, it means more Kacy on our screens.
One of the possibilities is seeing Kacy take things to the next level. Could that mean living together in a more official capacity, or an engagement? In the past, we would have seen a much more drawn-out will-they-won’t-they type of relationship, and I’m so glad the writers didn’t do that with this storyline. It’s time to see the two get over a couple more relationship hurdles and move forward together.
As for Lucy’s career, I want to see what the time on the ship means for her leadership style and career opportunities. Will she have to take charge at a crime scene for some sort of reason? How much more confidence will she have gained in her abilities? These are things that we could see play out in the third season.
NCIS: Hawaii is available to stream on Paramount+.
