Possible Sports Related Delays: CBS has a full doubleheader this Sunday with most of the country getting the New Orleans Saints at Los Angeles Rams but some viewers getting either the Denver Broncos at Oakland Raider or the Jacksonville Jaguars at the Arizona Cardinals. I will update the start time if there is a delay 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).
Rerun next week (“Queen Pin” and an hour later than the typical start time) but back on December 10th with a new episode:

Thanks Tess, I am interested to see how they develop this epsiode. I really liked Callen with Joelle, I thought they had chemistry and really seemed like a believable couple also Elizabeth Bogush is a really good actress. I am hoping for some good scenes between Chris O’Donell and Elizabeth Bogush.

It has been a “light” season for Callen – all the emphasis on Sam’s tragedy has made Callen the sort of drama-free side of the partnership. With Joelle back, there’s Callen drama but I wonder if there will be Sam drama too. Michelle and Sam were behind Callen and Joelle’s first date (with some help from Hetty). It will be interesting to see Sam’s reaction to her.
Thanks for your preview, it’s always useful to have everything together before an episode airs.
The two sneak peeks have made me really look forward to this one.
I’m curious to see what Joelle/Beth is doing this time and Callen’s reaction (it’s understandable he doesn’t trust her).
I had liked Joelle very much (and I thought and still think the actress has great chemistry with Chris O’Donnell) until they decided to turn her into a CIA agent, married and with a child at the time she was with Callen, ruining forever the previous episodes she had been in (especially “Humbug” and her genuinely – so it looked at that time – astonished expression when she had discovered Callen’s secret identity).
I was still trying to “forgive” the authors for such choice when Michelle Hanna was unexpectedly killed and that did leave me speechless, so I stopped bothering about Joelle, but now I can’t wait to see the way she fits in this episode and look forward to some of her scenes with Callen.

Thanks for your kind words. I agree with you that Jo and Callen had nice chemistry (though I think Chris O’Donnell has nice chemistry with most actors and actresses). It will be interesting to see how they use that now that Jo needs Callen.
While I agree with you about Michelle’s death, I will give the program credit – it is resonating in every episode. Sam is heartbroken, Callen misses Michelle, Deeks is terrified that he’ll lose Kensi the way Sam lost Michelle. Michelle’s death has lasting impact on the team compared to someone like Dom’s, who had impact in the next episode and got a mention or two after that but never again.
Guessing everyone is enjoying the end of their Thanksgiving hiatus – not much on social media yesterday or today:
CBS has the late game so I’ll update the start time when CBS makes it official.
