NCISLA Classified Preview: “Lost Soldier Down” (S13E07)

Title: Lost Soldier Down

Airing: January 2nd, 2022

Filmed: September 14th – 22nd, 2021

What CBS is telling us: NCIS investigates the apparent suicide of a Navy intelligence officer who leapt to his death after taking LSD. Also, while Kensi is away, Deeks makes plans to redo the backyard without her input, on the CBS Original series NCIS: LOS ANGELES.

What we think is happening: After a very long 6-week hiatus (the longest mid-season break in all 13 years!), the team is BACK! Minus Kensi, who is in Mexico working with a team of her own, which we will find out more about next week! But while she’s away, Deeks is trying to surprise her, which could have disastrous consequences!

  1. The nice part about new episodes: Getting to talk on here. 🙂
    Looking forward to seeing everyone after the review in a few days. :)))


  2. Thank you for another fascinating preview Lyssa. I hope the episode is worth the wait. Deeks is always worth the wait, right? Not sure about Deeks and the garden, I seem to remember a fanfic where Deeks creates a garden for Kensi, but I can’t remember what happened. Can somebody help me here?


  3. Finally. It seems like forever since we’ve seen a new episode. Thanks for the preview.
