What CBS is telling us: Sam negotiates and Rountree goes undercover when a man takes a busload of hostages and threatens to blow it up unless his daughter’s war crimes are posthumously cleared, on the CBS Original series NCIS: LOS ANGELES.
What we think is happening: A bus held hostage on the streets of Los Angeles? Who needs Keanu and Sandra when we’ve got the NCIS Office of Special Projects on the case!
