The seventh episode of “NCIS: Hawaii” titled “Vanishing Act” raised some speculations on the possible exit of Yasmine Al-Bustami.

Although the episode was focused on the story of a woman who was abducted by a bounty hunter because she was a wanted fugitive, most also noticed the job offer to Al-Bustami’s character, Lucy Tara.

Tara was offered a job as an agent on the USS Ronald Reagan. While most had expected the veteran actress consulted her ex-partner, Kate Whistler.

The episode revved up the potential exit of Al-Bustami, something that reached an interesting twist when Whistler told her to go, Just Jared reported.

Hence, suggestions that Al-Bustami would be leaving “NCIS: Hawaii” are in the air. However, the 29-year-old actress who is born to a Filipina mother is not going anywhere. It was confirmed that she will be part of the cast of the upcoming NCIS crossover – indicating that she will stick around at least until the end of “NCIS: Hawaii” season 2.

And while that may be seen as a rumor killer, it raises questions on whether there will be a change in her frequency of appearances.

In the event she does accept the job offer, there is a chance that Tara could be out of some episodes for the second season. The position is only a six-month assignment, meaning she could be re-inserted at any time depending on the script.

However, her name or perhaps some scenes showing her at work could be done. The time away could even be a means to allow Tara to shine or compose herself following her breakup with Whistler. Should this be the case, it may give showrunners some new ideas – factoring in the assignment and possibly things she has learned during her tenure on the USS Ronald Reagan.

Considering that “NCIS: Hawaii” has not exactly had any major altering plotlines, this could tilt things a bit and possibly create some new hype.
