NCISLA Classified Preview: “Come Back” (S7E14)


Title: “Come Back”

Airing: January 25th

Filming:   December 9th to December 16th

What CBS is telling us
: “Come Back” – When Kensi and Deeks announce to the team they are moving in together, coincidentally, Hetty assigns them to protection detail for Jack (Matthew Del Negro), Kensi’s ex-fiancé, who is in possession of a list containing important contacts in Afghanistan that people are willing to kill to get their hands on, on NCIS: Los Angeles.

What we think is happening: Jack’s back (which is the name of a pretty good James Spader horror movie from the 1980’s too) just as Kensi and Deeks announce their plans to live together. Also, Hetty remains as cryptic as ever while Callen and Sam get into it with a dumb guy wielding a power drill.

Be on the lookout:

Matthew Del Negro as Jack Simon

Welcome back, Jack. Jack was last seen leaving with Khatira from the NCIS base in Afghanistan. Here’s hoping all is well with Khatira.

Sneak Peek #1:

Sneak Peek #2:

Sneak Peek #3:

That look between Kensi and Callen along with Deeks’s “cryptic” comment – they all know Hetty is up to something – just not something this big.

Sneak Peek #4:

Probably on the list of 100 people Kensi and/or Deeks thought would be the person they were protecting, Jack Simon would have probably slotted in around 2,712.

We’re off next week – a rerun of “Active Measures” to likely remind us about all things Russian, including the missing Arkady, before returning on the 8th of February with the first of the two-part Russia storyline.

15 Comments on NCISLA Classified Preview: “Come Back” (S7E14)

  1. Thanks Tess for doing this. It was nice to get 4 sneak peeks, three of which involved Densi. I am looking forward to this episode, I surely hope , “it does not disappoint”.


    • The non-Kensi-and-Deeks sneak peek was rather entertaining. I always enjoy the team dealing with a stupid but confident criminal. I hope the episode gives Kensi some closure. While Kensi saw Jack in Afghanistan and was held hostage with him, I doubt there was any real time for her to deal with her past – too busy struggling to stay alive. Deeks seems properly supportive throughout the clips in the promo. Writer Erin Broadhurst has been part of two really good episodes. I’m looking for a three-peat.


  2. If they mess with Densi I will be furious!


    • I think this is an opportunity for Kensi to find some peace with a big part of her past. Kensi’s journey through the show includes finding her father’s killer, resolving her relationship with her mother, moving past her fears of losing people and moving on with Deeks. Jack is the last part of that – the last matter that remains open. Deeks seems to be supportive of her finding some closure. I think they’re solid, Deeks just wants her to be happy.


  3. I have only to say I hope this episode won’t make me wish Agent Blye had taken that shot…
    Thanks for your preview as always.


  4. Thank you for the great preview! The work that goes into this site is incredible and I’m very appreciative of all the effort that goes into it for us fans!
    Cladani and Donna Marie you two make me laugh!! 🙂 I’m hoping for a really good, even great, episode. Closure is always a good thing; or I should state, I hope that’s what happens, find closure, move on, move in and rock on!!!


  5. Lots of last minute additions. What looks to be a lovely photo from Eric Christian Olsen’s Instagram account:

  7. Finally, a word from JPK:
