The NCIS: Los Angeles cast for Season 12, Episode 8 includes Nicki Micheaux playing the role of DOJ Deputy Chief Effie Carlson.

This is going to be the first time that Micheaux has appeared on the NCIS spin-off, but not the first time that she has played a role on one of the shows within the NCIS universe.

The NCIS: LA episode that will air for the first time on January 10 is called Love Kills and it has a complicated storyline. That is going to include a number of recognizable faces appearing in guest-starring or recurring roles.

“When NCIS investigates the murder of a man about to reveal the source of a massive counterfeiting operation, an old acquaintance becomes their prime suspect and reveals the true reason for her return. Also, Deeks struggles during training to become an official NCIS agent, on NCIS: LOS ANGELES.”
