The new episode of NCIS: Los Angeles began with a car chase, as Callen and Kenzi were driving a Hearse and trying to stop an SUV that had a man shooting at them.
A short time later, a van came up behind them, and it appeared that Callen and Kenzi were trapped. The opening titles for the episode rolled and then we flashed eight hours into the past to learn what led up to the situation.
On the previous episode of NCIS: LA, the team investigated some missing guns and a man preparing to run for Senate that had been friends with Admiral Kilbride. The ATF lost seven agents during the operation, leading to NCIS helping out.
That investigation had all been about Callen and Sam earning the trust of Kilbride, with the trio at odds for most of the episode, but then sharing a drink when they were on the same page at the end of the night.
NCIS: Los Angeles Season 13, Episode 4 recap
After a segment where Rountree and Sam made some jokes and Sam revealed that Howard University was creating a scholarship in memory of his wife Michelle, it was time to get into the episode.
Callen went to chat with the former girlfriend of Kate Miller, as he let her know that Kate’s real name is Katya Marinova. Angela Pak wasn’t really forthcoming with much information, so Callen didn’t learn anything new in his investigation to finally find Katya.
