Begin Endcaps with Character Cues
G Callen: [Looks up at Sam, speech slurred] “What the hell took you so long?”
[Camera from Sam Hanna’s view, focuses on syringe on the ground]
Sam Hanna: [Looks at G and smiles] “You used the Hydroxyo- C.”
G Callen: [Raises eyebrows, attempts to sound upbeat, but voice is weak] “Worked like a charm.”
[[[MISSING TWO HOURS HERE]]]
[Camera zooms through exterior sky view to focus on the NCIS Office of Special Projects (Mission). Camera shows interior: armory room.]
Kensi Blye, Sam Hanna are at a near table, Marty Deeks and G Callen at far table. They are cleaning and loading their weapons.
Sam Hanna: “Ops is monitoring all water sensors and access points to underground utilities. And GWP is ready to cut off the water supply at a moment’s notice.”
Marty Deeks: “We’ve got local law enforcement and Kaleidoscope looking for ‘em. Eventually they’re going to have to show themselves.”
[Camera focuses on Callen struggling a bit with his weapon.]
G Callen drops the clip and a bullet rolls out. He reaches out and catches it, takes a frustrated breath.
Kensi Blye: “Callen, you sure you don’t want to guide us from Ops?”
G Callen: [Not making eye contact] “I’m fine.”
Marty Deeks: “Yeah? ‘Cause a couple of hours ago you could barely move.”
G Callen: [turns and glares at Marty Deeks] “You want to arm wrestle?”
Marty Deeks: [smiles] “Fair enough.”
