Title: “Ghost Gun”
Airing: October 23rd
Filming: August 30 to September 9th with Daniela Ruah’s scenes shot in early July.
What CBS is telling us: The murder of a navy machinist with high security clearance sends the team on a city-wide hunt tracking evidence. Also, Anna Kolcheck (Bar Paly) partners with Callen, and Sam assists Hetty in the on-going mole investigation, on NCIS: LOS ANGELES.
What we think is happening: Anna is back, as is already outed mole Carl Brown, as the clock is running on Hetty’s mole investigation/possible resignation. Also returning are Roberta Deeks and Dr. Adams in the Kensi and Deeks part of the story.
