Title: “Parallel Resistors”
Airing: November 13th
Filming: September 30th to October 11th with Daniela Ruah’s scenes shot in early July.
What CBS is telling us: After a graduate student developing an electromagnetic weapon for the Navy is attacked, the NCIS team discovers a connection to international warfare. Also, Kensi continues grueling physical therapy for her spinal injury, on NCIS: LOS ANGELES
What we think is happening: Kensi’s rehab will include scenes with an actor whose real life story could be an episode of a drama itself. There are also scenes in a tiki bar, filming with drones, a baseball field, a child in peril and Raj’s mom from The Big Bang Theory.

Possible Sports Related Delays:CBS has late games in a number of difference places for the Miami Dolphins-San Diego Chargers game. While most of the country will start on time, there will be delays in the following areas: New York, Philadephia, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Chicago, Nashville, the states of Minnesota, Wisconsin and all of Florida except Jacksonville according to the good people at 506sports.com. The show’s Twitter feed (@NCISLA) and @CBSTweet will provide and update and I’ll put it in the comments Sunday evening (especially since I live in one of the possibly delayed areas).
