NCISLA Classified Preview: “The Noble Maidens” (S12E14)

Title: The Noble Maidens

Airing: April 4th, 2021

Filming: February 9th – 18th, 2021

What CBS is telling us: Callen and the team discover that Anna is being held by a group with ties to Anna’s upbringing and must rescue her before she is forcibly returned to Russia. Also, Admiral Kilbride makes Nell a serious offer.

What we think is happening: The team continues their mission to rescue Anna, Nell gets a good reason to stick around, and maybe we will find out more about NCIS’s version of Natasha Romanoff’s “Red Room” 😉

  1. The only thing I’m really concerned about this episode is finding out Hetty’s involvement, and if there’s going to be an urgent SOS message that convinces someone to drop everything and come to her aide!
