CBS’ hit procedural drama NCIS Los Angeles made its highly anticipated comeback earlier this month with season 14. Although, things appear to be going smoothly for Devin Roundtree (played by Caleb Castille) the agent could be taken aback when his former girlfriend makes an appearance.  

NCIS LA has never been short of romances with most of the team in relationships, Agent Roundtree continues to be one of the few single members. 

After the character joined the team in season 11, many fans romantically linked him to his colleague Fatima Namazi (Medalion Rahimi). 

Their close bond even led to fans nicknaming them Foundtree but despite this, the two proved to just be friends. 

While Fatima has often offered Roundtree advice in the romance department, it seems as though he may need more than encouragement. 

Showrunner R Scott Gemmill dropped a major clue and hinted the agent will be forced to face an ex-girlfriend. 

He stated: “We are going to introduce someone that Rountree used to work with from the FBI. 

“Basically, it was a love interest that kind of went a little awry, so suddenly he’s forced to work with someone he might not’ve called back when he should have, that sort of thing.”

The showrunner added: “It also creates some fun with him and Fatima.”

With fans just two episodes into season 14, R Scott told TV Line the appearance would take place “down the line.”

Earlier in the year, Roundtree star Caleb addressed rumours about his character and Fatima potentially becoming an item. 

During an Instagram fan Q&A, he said: “When asked about their relationship, he stated: “Honestly, this is one of my favourite relationships on the show.

“Two young rookies that came together…well Fatima being there before Roundtree.

“[Their] bonding over the fact that they’re joining this team that has been together for a very long time.

“And them just learning from each other, they’re still learning how to work with one another, how to have each other’s backs.”

He continued: “They’re becoming super close friends and I’m excited because you’re going to see Fatima help Roundtree grow this season in ways you didn’t see last season. What I mean by that is in his everyday life.”

The pair have undertaken life-threatening missions together, so Fatima will undoubtedly be there as support when Roundtree’s ex-girlfriend makes an appearance.

Viewers got a glimpse into his family life when his sister Jordyn Roundtree (Ava McCoy) was featured in the season 13 episode titled Perception. 

Together they faced the traumatic experience of racial profiling after Devin was detained and pepper-sprayed by LAPD officers after being mistaken for a burglary suspect, even though they had no description of the perpetrator. 

Jordyn was also held against her will and feared the encounter would land her with a criminal record and jeopardise her hopes of getting into college. 

Thankfully, his superior Sam Hanna (LL Cool J) came to the rescue and was enraged at the LAPD for their actions. 

NCIS LA season 14 continues every Sunday on CBS in the USA. A UK release date hasn’t been announced.
