Title: Hard for the Money
Airing: May 1st, 2022 THIS EPISODE AIRS ONE HOUR EARLIER THAN USUAL – DON’T MISS IT!
Filmed: March 1st – 9th, 2022
What CBS is telling us: NCIS investigates the murder of a woman employed in the Navy’s missile defense program and its connection to stolen Navy missile technology. Also, a strict social worker stresses out Deeks, and Sam debates selling his boat, on the first of back-to-back episodes of the CBS Original series NCIS: LOS ANGELES.
What we think is happening: Sabatino is back! Rookies look like they’re running around a lot, and I have a feeling a stressed-out Deeks = a RAMBLY Deeks!! He also appears to have what looks like a serious conversation with the Admiral. Hope it’s a good one!
AGAIN – THIS EPISODE AIRS ONE HOUR EARLIER THAN USUAL – DON’T FORGET!
