NCISLA S7E3 3 crop

Title: “Driving Miss Diaz”

Airing: October 5th

Filming: August 13th to August 21st

What CBS is telling us: “Driving Miss Diaz” – The NCIS Los Angeles team investigates a 20-year old Peruvian massacre after a well-known fashion model, believed to be one of the survivors, is now a potential target. Also, Kensi goes undercover as the model’s assistant and Deeks as her chauffeur, on NCIS: LOS ANGELES, Monday, Oct. 5.

What we think is happening: Kensi and Deeks are in suits (and looking awfully good), Hetty is running a photo shoot, Callen and Sam are tech support and our old friend Alex Elmslie is back after a three season hiatus.

Be on the lookout:


Douglas Weston as Alex Elmslie
Weston was last seen as Alex Elmslie in “Exit Strategy” in Season 3.

Arienne Mandi as Catalina Diaz
Beautiful young actress with a few credits.

Bertila Damas as Blanca Perez

Fernando Rivera as Campus Police Officer Ignacio

Janelle Marie as Sofia

Video Surveillance:


Oh, Miss Diaz, that isn’t a homeless look.  Not in that suit.

Sneak Peek #1: 

A great look at Kensi and Deeks – fun, flirty and handling their assignment with ease.

Sneak Peek #2:

Do you think the very entertaining “Young Female Assistant” was smiling because the guy from tech support looks just like LL Cool J?  That is a bearded Alex Elmslie walking toward Callen and Sam as the two approach the receptionist’s desk.
