Title: Pandora’s Box (At the normal time – Bonafides airs ONE HOUR EARLIER)
Airing: March 27th, 2022
Filmed: November 29th – December 7th, 2021
What CBS is telling us: NCIS investigates the robbery of a high-end arts storage by going undercover as potential buyers on the black market, to find who is behind the stolen items, on the second of back-to-back episodes of the CBS Original series NCIS: LOS ANGELES.
What we think is happening: In this episode, we have missing art, mentions of Katya, and the case is tied to Callen and the deep fakes we keep seeing. Deeks and Kensi go to visit Rosa, only to find that she has been placed with a relative. Kensi will be connecting with a contact she met in an art gallery 2 seasons ago. Does this mean the return of the Swan/Jellyfish dress? Or something new that is just as extravagant? And Dani directed it all!
