Sneak Peek:

I think Sam’s new home is going to be a recurring character on the program and I like it.

Possible Sports Related Delays:  CBS has a full doubleheader this Sunday with three games featuring the top members of the quarterback class of 2004 NFL Draft going to most of the country – Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers, Seattle Seahawks at my going nowhere New York Giants or Denver Broncos at Los Angeles Chargers.  I will update the start time if there is a delay (there is a planned 9:30PM ET/8:30PM CT start for this episode) in the comments section Sunday night.  Other places to find the start time include the show’s official Twitter account (@NCISLA) and CBS’s official twitter account (@CBSTweet).

Any late info from the cast or crew will also be in the comment section.

One last note from Daniela Ruah:

  1. Thanks Tess, looking forward to Sam and Callen on Sam’s boat and Deeks and Kensi in tactical gear.

  2. Thanks for your preview.
    Since the episode was filmed at the end of August and I was on holiday, I honestly didn’t rememeber they had shared so many pictures and information. Now it was very useful to have everything in just one page, I guess I hadn’t even seen or read most of the things here.

    This week I’m especially looking forward to seeing Mosley out of OPS to test if I can buy her as a real boss, then I can’t wait to see Deeks and Kensi in tactical gear and Sam’s boat, too.
    The sneak with Callen and Sam was great and I liked their banter and Callen’s sense of humor, but I would have enjoyed it more, much more, if only I hadn’t kept on picturing in my mind Season 8 finale and the cruel and gratuitous death of without doubt my favorite NCIS:LA minor character related to one of the protagonists, Michelle, a woman whose loss on the show I’m sure I will regret until NCIS:LA goes on.

    • Thanks so much for the kind words!

      While I completely agree Michelle’s death was both cruel and gratuitous, the program at least has not forgotten it. It really has been a part of everything Sam is now.


      • Totally agree. Michelle will always be a part of Sam and the writers had better remember it when dealing with Sam’s future storylines. What I least want in Season 9 is a completely OOC Sam. So far it seems they’ve been doing a good job.

  3. Sunday afternoon in social media:

    It is not a 9PM start ET – it is going to be delayed by football. 9:30PMET/8:30PM CT is the earliest time possible. I’ll update when CBS issues official start times.


  4. Update for New York (that would be me) and some Northeast areas:
