Unofficial Surveillance:

This does not look like a good episode for the Audi:

Oh, the fun places they film:

Today in just meeting LL Cool J:

Guest star Julie Nivens’s talent agency thought she was in last week’s episode (not knowing about the episode swap) and sent this out:

Joe Wilson was on the set (his episode was the next to be produced and airing next week) and was back taking photos of Eric Christian Olsen:

Video Surveillance:



Sneak Peek:

I like Mosley here.  The line about how long would Deeks talk before someone stopped him – perfect.

This was the scene Chris O’Donnell showed when he was co-hosting The Talk week before last.

Possible Sports Related Delays:  Most of the Eastern and Central Time Zones will be starting with delays for the Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs game (a few markets may get the Los Angeles Chargers at Oakland Raiders).  When CBS updates the start times, I’ll post them in the comment section.  The show’s Twitter feed (@NCISLA) and @CBSTweet will also provide updates.

  2. Great collection, I always love the “Stalking Eric Christian Olsen ” series by Joey Wilson.I thought both sneak peeks looked intriguing and exciting. I am really looking forward to this episode. Thanks again for keeping it all organized for us.

    • Thank you! These are always fun to do.

      The Sam sneak preview is so sad because the person with the most full outside of work life for the first eight seasons is now the only one who is truly alone.


  3. Thanks for your preview. This week I’m really looking forward to the episode, the sneak peeks were both good. I hope Mosley will grow on me more and more from episode to episode, since we know she’s here to stay, she’d better be an interesting character, with more layers to discover every week and not just the same super arrogant boss from Washington judging the West Coast “Avengers”!

    • Thanks!

      I’m fine with Mosley pushing people if her reason for pushing people is to make them, and the team, better. If she wants to bring in an NCIS agent she’s worked with in the past, and he or she is really competent, maybe that makes Deeks or the team up their game. I like how Harley has been set up, I hope they’re doing the same with Mosley.


  4. So far in social media (yesterday was crazy):





  5. On time (9:30PM ET/8:30PM CT) tonight:
