Before Richard’s murder, Higgins and Richard had planned to resign from MI6 together, get married, and start a family. Unfortunately, when he was murdered, Juliet was spurred on a streak of vengeance that lost her her job. Until this point, she had told people the reason she left England was because of the weather. 

Since the death of her husband, Higgins has had multiple love interests on the show.

During the end of Season 2, Higgins’ visa is on the verge of expiration, and Magnum (Jay Hernandez) promptly offers to marry her to keep her in the country. While a romance between Higgins and Magnum has always been on the table in the show, Season 3 offers a new twist on the situation with the introduction of Dr. Ethan Shah (Jay Ali).

While the Ethan-Higgins breakup is devastating for fans who liked them together, fans might now see a more romantic side to the Magnum-Higgins partnership, which has remained strictly platonic for the most part. At one point, the characters posed as a married couple on an undercover mission, so many fans have been rooting for their relationship. 

While fans of the show might have to wait a little longer to see any romantic progression between Magnum and Higgins, there’s still room yet for more surprises this season. 

New episodes of Magnum P.I. air on CBS Fridays at 9 p.m. ET.
