In season two of NCIS, there seems to be a "thing" between Abby and McGee although this is never specifically stated.

In the season two episode "Twilight", Abby says that "McGee didn't just sleep in the coffin".

This is later followed up in the season 3 episode "Mind Games", Abby states "I am a scientist, McGee. Luck has nothing to do with it and/or us."

Did McGee and Abby ever get into a relationship? Is this ever covered anywhere during NCIS?

They were never actually in a relationship! They started dating after Sub Rosa (Season 1) then things went pearshaped after McGee asked were their relationship was going and Abby was happy just to leave things as they were! They only dated for half of the season!

At the end of Season 8, however there is a very tender moment between the two of them and McGee tells Abby 'If something ever happened to you I would..." which indicates that he still has feelings for Abby and worries about her while also giving the hint that he cares and wants to protect her.

Dating for half a season is a relationship! Just because you don't tell friends that you're going steady or bumping uglies doesn't make it any less real. – David Harkness May 22 '13 at 2:25
Abbey kills any relationship that isn't up to her "list". And both her and the gang including Gibbs tell McGee to get over it in the later seasons. – cde Aug 29 '15 at 5:23

I got into the show in 2015. I never knew they dated, but got the impression that Abby had a crush on McGee, who did not reciprocate her feelings.
