The One Who Pays Attention: Jake Bishop (NCIS)
Jake may not work for NCIS, but his relationship with Special Agent Ellie Bishop has gotten him wrapped up in some of their most intense cases. When the NCIS team needed access to a terrorist organization's information, Jake nearly sacrificed his job at the NSA in order to help. Not only did he make it possible for the gang to prevent a major terrorist attack, he also struck up a friendship with Gibbs--that in itself is an heroic feat!
