Title: “Se Murio el Payaso”

Airing:   October 8th (moved up from October 15th)

Filming:  April 17 to April 25 – this was the first of two episodes shot after “Unleashed” last spring.

What CBS is telling us:   When the daughter of a notorious counterfeiter arrives in Los Angeles, Sam is sent undercover as a financier, while Callen partners with Anna (Bar Paley) to track the family’s latest scheme, on NCIS: LOS ANGELES.
What we think is happening:  If it makes Sam feel any better, “Se Murio el Payaso” translates to The Clown Died in Spanish.

  1. Thanks so much for doing this and keeping it all straight, especially after CBS mistakenly posted the sneak peeks for “Assets”. I do hope this is a good episode. I am not fond of Anna, and I thought the sneak peeks seemed low energy. Of course, I think part of my problem was that both sneak peeks for “Assets” made it look really good, so I think my disappointment is from realizing we were not getting that episode.

  2. Thanks for your preview, it’s always useful to have everything summed up together in a single post.
    This time I’m really curious about the title of the episode, why in Spanish (actually with a misspelled word in the script, “murio” instead of the correct “murió”) and if related to Sam and his clown phobia in a way or another.
    To be honest, I liked the mistakenly posted “Assets” sneak peeks better, so maybe I’ll be more excited next week!
    In my opinion, NCIS:LA episodes filmed the season before and then included in the following season have rarely been thrilling so far, with the only exception of the amazing “An unlocked mind”. Let’s wait and see if this week’s episode is another welcome, unexpected, nice surprise.

    • The sneak peeks from CBS this week were plot heavy but I sort of loved the Anna one at TVLine. Made Anna a bit of a goofball while Callen earned good boyfriend points.

      Thanks for the kind words!

    I wonder with the fact that there are 2 secret service agents in this episode, this will give us more insight/background into Mosley? Either something to help the team like her more, or give them more reason for dissent?

      Also, LOVE Kip Pardue! Now I want to go watch Remember the Titans again!

    • Just repeating here but this was one of the episodes the program shot last spring – before Mosley was on board. Unless they edit a scene or two in, I can’t see this episode offering any insight to the newest member of the team. And I like Kip Pardue too (hey, that rhymes!).

        I kinda commented on Tumblr, but think I did it wrong, so if you’re seeing this again, apologies. But I could see them kinda knowing what type of replacement they were going to give for Granger by that point, so maybe they left fillers to be filmed later (which there seemed to be with that Insta shot from BF in August). Anyway, if they don’t, I think it’d be a wasted opportunity for some backstory, not that they haven’t gone that route before (Sam being overly defensive of SEALs, etc).

        • I do everything on Tumblr wrong so you could have totally done it right and I just missed it.

          While I agree with you on the type of character they were looking for last season (a new boss who was going to have issues with the team because (a) Lauren Hunter and (b) Owen Granger season 3), I’m wondering if they had the specifics of Mosley figured out at that point. Shane Brennan had one idea of who was running the NCIS OSP office when they did the two-part NCIS episode but when Linda Hunt was available to them, they ran with her. That may be the case tonight – a general mention of the new person running the office with Hetty gone but no real specifics.


  4. I thought we could have been done with her.

    Die, Anna, die.



  5. please get rid of anna she is annoing . bar paly sucks at acting as i call her bad acting raccoon suprise face that the raccoon makes when she/he get caught going trough trash she has the same face ,more facial expressions i have never seen of her so many complains about her and she is still in she must be playing with some one in the office


  6. Mostly on-time tonight:
