CBS press office posted this picture on Twitter featuring our favorite two villains having a good time at the table read for season five’s opening episode Ascension. Christopher Lambert (left) and Tim Murphy have played two of the longest running nemesis on the series with recurring roles over the course of the last two years. Lambert first stared as the Chameleon (Janvier) in the season three episode Crimeleon. He returned in the season finale, Sans Voir and again in the first episode of season four, Endgame. Tim Murphy made a splash as the evil Sidorov this past season in Rude Awakenings and Wanted before returning in the controversial season finale, Decent.
Now these two archenemies will return once again in the season five opener to face the wrath of the NCIS Los Angeles team. Fans have been looking forward to the conclusion of last season’s cliffhanger as they watched Sidorov sadistically torture our heroes, Sam and Deeks and wonder what the outcome will be for the tormented agents. But what will happen to our villains? Will this be the end for the nasty twosome? As the closing credits role, will the world be safe again from their kind? The two have certainly kept us guessing as to their next moves over the last two seasons but can they escape the revenge of G Callen and company one more time? Probably not, but it might be fun to see them get away to cause havoc once again in future episodes. Sherlock has his Moriarty, Harry Potter his Voldemort and Batman his Joker. It’s the ultimate battle between good and evil!
