NCISLA Classified Preview: “Granger, O.” (S7E22)


Title:  “Granger, O.”

Airing:  April 18th

Filming: February 24th to March 3rd


What CBS is telling us:  As Granger escorts Jennifer Kim (Malese Jow) back to Los Angeles, he interrogates her regarding a North Korean spy and she admits to knowing he is her father, on NCIS: LOS ANGELES.

What we think is happening:  He probably isn’t passing out chocolate “It’s a Girl” cigars at the office but it seems Grumpy Granger is a delayed daddy.  A storyline set in motion during “Cancel Christmas” comes to fruition here.

Sneak Peek #1:

Wasn’t Eric terrible at basketball in season three?

Sneak Peek #2:

Yes, about that.  Seems there is a price to pay for the three sneak peeks last week and that price is one sneak peek this week.  If anything is put up Monday, I’ll happily add it to the comments section.

After this, we’re down to two episodes – wow!

    Tess, thanks for another great preview, hard to believe we are down to the final episodes. Although , they only gave us one sneak peek, they gave it to us early and it is a really good one, so I guess we should be happy.


    • Thank you! I’m stunned how quickly the season has blown by – I think really good episodes week after week helped move things along.

      If they put up another sneak peek (or it shows up on “ET” or a program like that, I’ll post it here).


  2. Thanks for your preview.
    I am really looking forward to this episode to see Granger also from a different perspective.
    He has grown a lot on me over the past seasons and I am glad he’s been given an episode with his name, even if I would have liked Deeks’ one first. Never mind, I will patiently wait until Season 8 for a big, huge, explosive, breathtaking, extraordinary “Deeks, M.” episode!


    • I think Miguel Ferrer had a lot to do with Granger going from being the “anti-Hetty” in season three to the gruff but trusted man on the team.

      Looking forward to the this episode, season eight, “Deeks, M.” and anything else they have planned. Season seven has been a creatively good one – let’s keep this going.


  3. Late additions from twitter:

    A little fun from the official account tonight.


  5. I agree, COD’S impression was spot on. I think they have a lot fun behind the scenes.
