Rita used to accompany Pride on the piano back in his singing days. But their, ahem, harmony was more than musical.
We'll first meet Rita, a D.A. and Reserve Navy Commander in the JAG Corps, in the March 7 episode, when she becomes connected to cases Pride is investigating. In the next episode, while the NCIS team hunts for a highly skilled Special Ops Marine who has assaulted six men in a bar, Pride and Rita will reconnect.
If this exclusive photo is any indication, it looks like Bakula and Field's actual chemistry is going to translate pretty well to the screen, huh?
