Title: “Outside the Lines”
Airing: April 22, 2018
Filming: The wonderful Rick Tunell, who I will be forever grateful to for posting the monthly production calendar, is no longer posting the calendars but is keeping fans up to date as best he can. Based on who was tweeting what, the dates for this episode were February 1-February 9 give or take a day. It will be that way going forward.
What CBS is telling us: After a cryptocurrency farm is robbed of over $10 million in Bitcoin codes, Sam and Hidoko go undercover, with Sam resuming a likely compromised former alias, on NCIS: LOS ANGELES.
What we think is happening: Harley takes a prominent position in a case where King is back.
