Official CBS Press Release – “Fallout” – When an antiterrorism device is stolen, the team must quickly find the suspect and the device before an attack is made against Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Hetty realizes the case is bringing her back to someone from her past, on NCIS: LOS ANGELES, Tuesday, Nov. 12 (9:00-10:01 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

As the team searches for a dirty bomb, there is indication that our favorite tech geek, “Mr. Beale”, plays a prime role. As Callen declares, “We can’t leave him here alone” the protective familial instincts of Hetty take root. How might Eric be in danger?

Yet is it only Eric in jeopardy? Sam and Callen are taking a backward fall and the ominous narrator reveals the case might “explode their careers”! Callen deepens the possible “fallout” with reference to potential of criminal charges. In the most touching moment, Sam grabs Callen in a sincere and meaningful hug. What would prompt this public expression of emotion from our giant teddy bear? Has one or more of the team finally taken a step too far in their investigation?

And at the center of it all there’s the ”… riddle wrapped up in a mystery inside an enigma clutching a hand grenade” (except this time it’s a loaded rifle) that is Hetty. A person from her past makes an appearance and we can easily presume it is someone other than Granger. Might this be another “orphan”? Probably not. Perhaps another connection to Callen’s past? That’s a much safer bet. Yet who is this unknown; what was their relationship; and how might he/she alter the future?

How will the team keep the city and each other safe NEXT… ON NCISLA?
