NCISLA Classified Preview: “Game of Drones” (S14E01)

Title: Game of Drones

Airing: October 9th, 2022 – REMINDER – The show has moved to one hour later than last season!

Filmed: August 3rd – 11th, 2022 (it was actually the 4th episode filmed this season!)

What CBS is telling us: The NCIS team searches for a suspect and their motive following the bombing of a large facility where military combat drones are assembled. Also, Callen and Kilbride get troubling news about a body found in Syria.

What we think is happening: It’s been a little quiet on the behind-the-scenes front, so guesses are a little slim for now, but I’ll give it a go! Kensi and Deeks are adjusting to being parents. Kilbride and Callen get news Hetty might be dead! But it’s Hetty, so she’s likely not! The team solves a case involving drones with Deeks going undercover as what I’m guessing is a Fire Marshal? There’s an LAFD patch on his shirt and he’s carrying a clipboard, so that’s my best guess.

We’re a little light here this week – between the quietness on set, and the fact that my phone where I save my posts died – a lot of what we did have I don’t have anymore. I’ll add more as I find them!
