Title: “Queen Pin”
Airing: March 12th. Hey, two in a row, that hasn’t happened since early January.
Filming: January 24th to January 31st
What CBS is telling us: Sam assumes a former alias in a risky undercover operation to take down an elusive drug lord. Also, Hetty interrupts Callen and Anna’s romantic night to assign them a prisoner escort mission, on NCIS: LOS ANGELES.
What we think is happening: Hetty has taken over Nell’s role of ruining romantic moments while Sam looks to be on his own. Callen and Anna’s prisoner is a blast from Kensi and Deeks’s not so recent past.
