    Thanks Tess. I am looking forward to Linda Hunt in this episode, hope Hetty and Keane have some real screen time in this. I , of course, hope for some Deeks and Kensi together , more than the one promo pic in the boat shed we have seen but have no confidence that will happen.

    • Thank you!

      I’m always looking forward to Linda Hunt and I think Jeff Kober has been a great onscreen partner for her.

      Daniela Ruah sent out a behind the scenes photo from the boat shed with a funny comment.

      Thanks again!


  2. Great job as always Tess.
    thank you.

    I have been struggling lately to generate my usual level of enthusiasm for the upcoming episodes.
    I still always try to watch it live. But it has become less of a “I can’t wait”,
    and more of a “let’s wait and see” kind of feeling.
    A couple of solid Densi episodes could fix that though.
    here’s to hope.

  3. Saturday’s social media:

    And while it has nothing to do with Sunday’s episode, ECO put this up and with “Infinity War” opening this weekend, I’m sure Eric and Nell have had tickets for weeks (Sam too, but he’s not telling):


  4. Thank you for the preview. Looking forward to a new episode and no sports delay.


  5. Thanks for your preview. I can’t say I’m looking forward to new episodes as much as I used to, but I’m still here anyway, I can’t let NCIS:LA go, hoping every week to see something again that makes me remember why I fell in love with this show. Could “Reentry” be that episode? Who knows…
