NCISLA Classified Preview: “The Frogman’s Daughter” (S12E10)
I want to give a warm wikiDeeks welcome to new contributor Lyssa, who is bringing back Tess’ great episode previews, starting this week. We’re delighted to have her with us and send a warm thanks to Tess for continuing to contribute the cast list each week.
Title: “The Frogman’s Daughter”
Airing: February 14, 2021
Filming: December 9th to 17th, 2020
What CBS is telling us: When Sam’s daughter, Kam (Kayla Smith), is kidnapped after leading citywide protests, he will stop at nothing to find her. Also, Deeks rejoins NCIS and Callen searches for answers about Anna, on NCIS: Los Angeles.
What we think is happening: Sam goes full papa bear searching for information on Kam’s disappearance, and Investigator Deeks is here (and hopefully explained)! He and Kensi take their next steps toward parenthood.
