Airing: January 15th, 2023

What CBS is telling us: When Sam’s friend Tom Olsen finds himself being hunted down by enemies from his past, the NCIS team must find out who is after him, on the CBS Original series NCIS: LOS ANGELES.
What we think is happening: #marriedcouplegoals Getting to see Daniela and Dave acting on screen together finally is exciting! A literal HALF DOZEN recurring stars joins the team in an adventure to keep Sam’s friend Tom safe after he’s attacked. Well, in this case, the team might just be Kensi, Rountree, and Fatima! – this might be a Deeks-less, Callen-less, Sam-less episode! Maybe not, I’ve just not seen any sign of those three so far. Speaking of married couples, has Tom been remarried since the end of season 8? His wife then was Carol, so I’m wondering if Lauren is a new wife, or a sister, or none of the above?
