Title: “Home Is Where the Heart Is”
Airing: October 30th
Filming: September 12th to 20th with Daniela Ruah’s scenes shot in early July.
What CBS is telling us: – After a maintenance man saved the life of a lieutenant commander, the NCIS team uncovers his dark past which puts a local teenager in danger. Also, Sam must decide which colleague to take to the Los Angeles football game.
What we think is happening: Based on the preview, Kensi begins her recovery. Also, lots of things blow up. It is a Joe Wilson episode after all.
