Title: A Land of Wolves

Airing: January 9th, 2022

What CBS is telling us: The NCIS team scrambles to find Kensi, when she is attacked and kidnapped by a mysterious militia group while helping a group of migrants cross the border, on the CBS Original series NCIS: LOS ANGELES.

What we think is happening: Sam and Deeks travel to Mexico to find Kensi and bring her home, and a new agent joins Fatima in ops to help out.

Whether that's through my writing, postulating what will happen next on the show, or creating photo edits, or cross-stitching the characters, or building custom Funko Pops and their miniature props, I love it all!

5 Comments on NCISLA Classified Preview: “A Land of Wolves” (S13E08)

  1. Thank you Lyssa, I always enjoy your previews. It looks like everybody had a good time filming ‘A Land of Wolves’. This episode has intrigued me. I was disappointed when I first saw the spoilers all those weeks ago. Here we go again I thought, Kensi gets injured and Deeks gets angst. Nothing new there, I’d rather see the roles reversed. Seems that we will be getting the ‘same old’, but I’m starting to think we will get a bit more than that. It looks like Sam is being supportive, but what is the deal with Deeks and Fatima? Are they in the boatshed? Why is Deeks dressed like that? Is Deeks giving Fatima a lesson in stress? Will Fatima tell Kilbride Deeks isn’t keeping calm? Apparently not.

    I thought this was Adam George Key’s first attempt at writing an episode of NCIS:LA but evidently not. He does seem to have a high regard for Eric so I’m optimistic he hasn’t made Deeks look stupid. Certainly seems an episode for Densi fans, it has the potential to be an ‘Essential Episode’ or an epic fail. I’m hoping for the best and looking forward to the wikiDeeks review.

  2. What a fun preview! I can’t believe how much stuff was posted. Also, thanks to the link for the pics. I couldn’t find the high res ones anywhere.


  3. All good except the reunion scene not a hug or a kiss.If my spouse was missing and possible bleeding out or hurt when i found then there would be kisses and hugs.No love for poor Deeks,Not even a kiss goodnite or thanks babe in the bedroom scene. wth writers n director.???


  4. I loved this episode – Daniela was great – such a range of emotions. I felt the same about the lack of hug or kiss from Deeks, but they rarely show emotions when they are with the whole crew – what he said kind of made of for it. And as for the bedroom scene, I think they were trying to show how exhausted she was but so glad to be back with Deeks – just my opinion. I love watching these two interact on this show. They are so good together.
