Airing: February 2nd
Shot: December 11th to December 19th and January 5th – episode wasn’t completed before the show’s holiday break.
What is CBS telling us: “Black Wind” – Callen and Sam go undercover as food truck owners in Mexico to find the source of an anthrax poisoning before it’s used to create a bioweapon, on NCIS: LOS ANGELES, Monday, Feb. 2 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
What we think is happening: Based on the photos sent out by CBS and from crew members, this looks to have Callen and Sam undercover with lots of scenes shot in the rain and in food trucks. Also, a little Action!Deeks in the promo.

Smith is a regular director for all things NCIS, directing the holiday episode of the New Orleans sibling and 57 episodes of the mothership to date.
Not a single photo of any other NCIS staffers except Callen and Sam. Not going out on a limb here but this looks to be a Callen and Sam heavy episode right now.
Unofficial Photographic Recon:
A crew member took a photo of Eric Christian Olsen in a puddle reflection. There were a lot of photos of puddles, rain, cast and crew taking cover and crew wearing rain gear during the wet weather.
Guest star Angelique Cabral took a nice behind the scenes photos with Eric Christian Olsen, Daniela Ruah and Chris O’Donnell.
In the same location, a little jumping around.
Finally, in the same location, Eric Christian Olsen and LL Cool J.
@jacqniv, the Twitter account of the program’s staff photographer, usually has some exciting behind the scenes photos posted the day of the episode (especially if there are explosions).
Got a little Action!Deeks going there.

You knew when Deeks rolled in that cactus exactly how that scene was ending (ouch!).
Sneak peak #2: http://youtu.be/as_SQJs2BKc
Callen and Sam cement their status as an old married couple. And we’re pretty sure Sam has a George Foreman Grill to go with his Chillow, four-in-one juicer., the upside-down tomato grower, crystal bulbs that water his plants and a Ginsu Knife that can cut through glass.
