NCISLA Classified Preview: “Work & Family” (S13E20) – EPISODE 300!

Title: Work & Family

Airing: May 8th, 2022

Filmed: March 21st – 29th, 2022

What CBS is telling us: NCIS investigates after two men are blown up by their own explosives while attempting to break into a military base. Also, Callen wants to take the next step with Anna, and Sam moves in with his father, Raymond (Richard Gant), on the 300th episode of the CBS Original series NCIS: LOS ANGELES.

What we think is happening: Things go BOOM (and Fatima and Rountree get caught up in it)!, Sam moves his dad into their new home, Callen gets closer to asking Anna to marry him, Densi gets captured by the bad guys, and Rosa returns!
