NCIS: Los Angeles – Sans voir

If it’s May, then Hetty will resign.

Well, that was another explosive and deadly finale. Possibly deadlier than NCIS, because we lost two agents for certain, but at least they didn’t have the nerve to kill off Nate. Other than that, they are fond of killing off people we sort of know, and might be attached to. It’s a sneaky way of doing it. Use minor recurring characters, allowing the viewers to form a bond, but make them so minor that you can kill some off without compunction. And one of them doesn’t even get credited on IMDb. Some death.

The other interesting thing is that NCIS: Los Angeles is generally very violent, and people are shot, and killed, for very little reason. So we began with a ‘normal kind of bloodbath,’ only to find that when they got to the bad guy they don’t shoot at all. Clearly he needed to live for a bit. So why should we be all that concerned if someone kills him at a later stage? We wouldn’t have batted many eyelids if they’d got him from the start.

The writing continued pretty good, but I feel that if they offer us NCIS plot clones, they shouldn’t expect us to see it as fresh and clever. To my mind this double episode end to season three had several such moments. On the other hand, I do like the longer length episode. Wouldn’t mind that more often, as long as the frequency of episodes remains unchanged.

I have no doubt that once we return in September, the killer agent will soon be back to normal. Although, it would make for an interesting season if he wasn’t.
