As you can see I didn’t care much about the case in this ep but I LOVED the team banter. But I can imagine you all don’t mind me focusing on that, huh ?? 😉
One thing that kind of bothered me at the end was that I was already cheering that the team didn’t save the day for once… or so it seemed… turned out they did afterall…
What do you think? Would you prefer to have a case go ‘bad’ once in a while ?? I mean real life agents probably more often use booze to drown their sorrow than to celebrate a case… just saying…

Official CBS press release – “Black Wind” – Callen and Sam go undercover as food truck owners in Mexico to find the source of an anthrax poisoning before it’s used to create a bioweapon, on NCIS: LOS ANGELES, Monday, Feb. 2 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Darkness looms as a “Black Wind” approaches Los Angeles. While it could be the result of an accidental burnt offering, something far more ominous is apt to be the likely culprit.
On the topic of burnt, the evolving bromance of Callen and Sam might end up in flames as they find themselves undercover in a food truck. (One can only wonder how that ride compares to Sam’s beloved Challenger.) It’s easy to presume this will be a case of “too many cooks in the kitchen”. As the banter and nicknames are sure to be in high supply, with a main ingredient of anthrax in the mix, the guys will be forced to make sure their operation doesn’t overflow in lethal proportions.
The mind of writer Joe Sachs takes the team from over the top in Mexico to another visit to the LA underground. Mr. Sachs is known for taking us to interesting locations that hold significant meaning to the case, such as the Vietnamese clothing factory in “The Dragon and the Fairy” (3×18), the rail lines of “The Livelong Day” (5×7), and the previous subterranean pursuit in “Purity” (4×20). It will be intriguing to see what has captured his attention this season! Our team is further secure under the keen eyes of series-long director Dennis Smith.
The current operation has the team facing yet another chemically-based threat. Based on less than comforting confrontations of the past, let’s hope everyone has appropriately prepared. Remember Deeks’ issue with the smallpox vaccine in “Touch of Death” (3×21)? Let’s hope he’s overcome his denied fear of needles for this necessary inoculation!
Chasing down suspects across the border, how will the team yet again keep our nation safe Next… on NCISLA?
