In February, Ruah gave fans a hint about when the episode would air by posting the cover photo of “TV Guide” featuring her and Deeks. The pair were married on March 17 on season 10, during episode 17 titled “Till Death Do Us Part.”

In January, she took to Instagram posting a photo of the script linked to the episode. She captioned it, “The episode many of you have been waiting for…”

Ruah and Eric are actually in-laws in real-life because she married his brother, David Paul Olsen, in 2014. The couple have two daughters together.

Eric’s brother, and lookalike, also happens to be his stunt double on “NCIS.” The actor actually helped Ruah and David come together and start a relationship.

During a 2014 interview on “The Queen Latifah Show,” Eric opened up to Latifah about how he’d helped the couple find love.

“[Ruah] was dating this guy that was awful, and [David] was dating this girl that was awful, and they weren’t themselves. And I got to see [Ruah] at work and she’s this amazing, wonderful human being. And I know my brother, and he’s this amazing, wonderful human being.”

Eric added:

“But they weren’t themselves in their relationships. When they got together, because he came on to do stunts, I would say something nice about her to him and then say something to him about her. That was enough to kinda get them started in conversation and it became this wonderful relationship.”

The following year, Ruah had an interview on Latifah’s show where she spoke about what it was like to kiss her brother-in-law. The talk show host asked the actress if the kissing scenes were “weird,” and Ruah admitted they were.
