NCISLA Classified Preview: “Indentured” (S13E03)
Airing: October 24th, 2021
Filming: August 4th – 12th, 2021 (Production 13×03)
What CBS is telling us: Sam and Kilbride clash when a case involving an arms dealer responsible for the slaughter of ATF agents leads them to a well-connected colonel and friend of Kilbride, accused of supplying militia groups with guns. Also, Kensi and Fatima go undercover at a rehab facility to question the arms dealer’s girlfriend, on NCIS: LOS ANGELES.
CHEAT TWEET: #NCISLA squad, while Kilbride and Sam square off on a case, Kensi and Fatima get into a FIGHT?! What’s going on with our #NCISLA fam?!
What we think is happening: The team returns to Tranquility Villa to go undercover in search of answers. Will we recall some memories from Deeks and Kensi’s undercover mission there 8 years ago (Kensi as the nutritionist and Deeks as a patient)? Or perhaps memories of what happened right after (*cough*first time*cough*)?

Shots from the Set (and the surrounding areas):
Thank you for this Lyssa. It seems everybody enjoyed filming this episode. I just hope everybody enjoys watching it, I really do. Just not sure
I began watching NCIS LA when COVID hit (plus a broken foot). After purchasing season 1-12 on dvd and binge watching several times, I grew to love this show especially from episode Hand to Hand and after. ECO is now my favorite actor. However I love all the main characters and am enjoying season 13 as well. I tend to read the many varied comments that are posted here and find that some people forget this is just a tv procedural. It’s impossible to delve into every nick and cranny in less than an hour each week. Being Hollywood, they tend to be leftest thinking but that’s to be expected. I overlook much of that and just enjoy the terrific acting, banter, humor, romance and friendship that is part of this show. If many of us wanted strictly crime solving each week then there’s plenty of those shows out there. I do not watch very many other shows and laugh when someone says “that theme was on NCIS or whatever” already. Many of us never saw them so it’s new to us. Bottom line…I think it’s ok for LA to delve into current topics of these times. If nothing else it gives us something to think about.
I also love the Densi story lines now that they are a married couple on the show. Married people talk about children and family and etc. and can show love and affection just in their looks and words. This is being done very well by Densi in my humble opinion. So let’s just sit back and enjoy this program and allow the new characters to grow and the original ones to age as we do. Plus I hope the PTBs realize that this show has viewers all over the world and they are not as up to date on the series as we are here in USA. I’m hoping this keeps going for many more seasons in the future!
