And sadly that led to citywide search. And Sam had his own plan about what to do with Callen. By assuming false identities and utilizing the most advanced technology, this team of highly trained agents goes deep undercover, putting their lives on the line in the field to bring down their targets. For the first time one can play and stream almost every video format, smoothly and with stunning quality. In the final hour Sam ultimately chose to trust his partner.
Callen embarks on a secret project, leaving Sam and the entire team in the dark. Honestly, I cheered and laughed as Hetty tazed Callen after he ignored her. Also, after Kensi grows suspicious that Deeks is hiding something, he surprises her by introducing her to his mother Pamela Reed. This is where some familiar pieces come into play, and I applaud the writers for bringing back some old key guest stars. . Thus those two had to make a call and they were the ones that asked Sam to spy on Callen. I don't need any damn tea! So Sam then had to take a simple assignment and turn into a project for the entire team — in other words he outsourced the spying on Callen job to the others because he felt they would be more objective.
There were simply that were off for all of them ignore. It seems that while he was interested in finding out what happen to Arkday — he came across the newest option that the mob and also terrorists have been using as currency. I would be remiss if I did not mention the official undercover couple, Kensi and Deeks, who are now officially an item. Did you watch the last episode? Also, Deeks and Kensi try to find a way to include their mothers in their Christmas plans, and Hetty notices that Granger isn't feeling the holiday cheer. Also, Sam's family is moved from their home to a safe house.
Hetty has a folder for everything! So Sam merely pretended to Callen let go when he could have caught him and that allowed him to get close enough to Callen to plant a tracking device. It also wasn't a surprise that Sam let him go when he was caught. Sabatino relays to the team what Callen was looking for, which turns out to be another old friend of his own in the form of Anatoli Kirkin, a Russian mob contact Deeks once shared a very uncomfortable spa bath with. The last five minutes were some of the best with Hetty and Sam making up, followed by Hetty laying down the law with Callen. Nell has been going the mini-Hetty road for a few seasons, and yet Eric has been strangely stagnant.
Not tonight, tonight we drink alone. One thing I've missed is Callen and Sam's banter, which was on point here. This was impossible before with Popcorn Time, because many torrents contain unstreamable video formats. All the previews seem to suggest that Callen was going rogue, but did we really expect him to betray everyone? Good thing too, since Kirkin double crosses Callen and is in need of an assist. After Hetty demands his operation be shut down, the team is tasked with locating Callen before he finds himself in over his head. Falls in madly in love with fictional characters. Also, Deeks admits to Kensi that he thinks she is too messy.
Although when it comes to shows about military intelligence, if you catch a character on a laptop with secret information, chances are its not good. See, things had ended quite ugly for Callen last season. So it was revealed that Callen has been trying to track him down and has even gotten into bed with Russian mobsters for a lead. Stop by your place for a beer after my workout, just in time to see you leaving looking like Deeks on a bad day. At some point, the gruff exterior thing is going to get old. Kirkin agrees to help Callen find Arkady, but only if Callen steals an already stolen priceless painting back for him.
No one knew why and everyone had theory but none of them meant anything good. Did Hetty like it when she found out? So while it may be acceptable that Callen is now no longer sharing with the group — particularly about his feelings — his complete silence about his after work ops, and he was caught in an op, is something his unit has to investigate. I was relieved that she didn't just slap him on the wrist, Hetty: Sorry. And while I'm sure we were expecting to be an explosive premiere , I found it to be kind of busy. Callen was keeping secrets from his unit. Now while all of this is happening, Callen is able to steal the painting with ease, which of course is a set-up.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. As a result of the events in Russia, Callen has since gone off the grid trying to find out if his friend Arkady is alive. Yet Sam and Callen have been partners for years. But the advancement for other characters makes up for the fact that this is a sort of weak episode plot wise. And the other big thing? The only incident he can come up with is a complaint that he filed against a senior detective with old school, violent methods during his early days on the force; that detective ended up dead under very violent circumstances. I believe in the power of stories to delight, to dismay, to bring hope, to shed light, and to send a message.
