Well, well, well. Two recurring NCIS actors on NCIS: Los Angeles. It’s almost too much, but still very nice, especially as the usual pattern of being the opposite of what you are on the other show, didn’t seem to happen. So we had Alicia Coppola as an FBI agent and young Gibbs, aka Sean Harmon,* as a convict.
And we got to return to Callen as a con, six months after he was pulled from his undercover role in prison. You’d have thought his tan would have been a giveaway he hadn’t spent all that time in a solitary cell, but still. It was fine.
It’s a wonder what they can do to make an actor younger for a role, but I have to say that the younger Hetty was so scary as to make me worried. But it was another step on the journey to finding out about Callen’s past. Wonder how long they will be stringing it out?
I welcome the break in finding fault with Deeks, which seemed like such a stupid plot device. As unlikely as him and Kensi thinking no one notices what they are up to.
All in all, pretty good, despite the high body count. Just wondered who else was on that bus with all the convicts. Surely someone would have noticed what happened?

*One day I look forward to seeing Sean Harmon with nice hair.
