During NCIS: Los Angeles Season 11, Episode 21 (titled “Murder of Crows”), the team looks for a former NCIS tech’s partner. They begin looking for her partner after they suspect he might be working with the gun runners they didn’t take down years ago.

Guest stars in this episode include Duncan Campbell as NCIS Special Agent Castor, Adam George Key as LAPD Officer Harrison, Patricia De Leon as Ellie Martinez, and Anna Akana as Rhea Moretti.

Callen considers a big move

Callen hints he’s about to take a big step in his personal life. In this episode, Sam catches him looking at houses on his phone. All signs point to Callen taking his relationship with Anna (Bar Paly) to the next level. Callen says he wants to settle down with Anna, and put down some roots.

We wouldn’t be surprised if Sam has an announcement of his own in the future. During Season 11, Episode 20, we see Sam knock on the door of his lady friend, Katherine Casillas. The scene ends with him saying, “I’ve been looking forward to seeing you all day.”

Deeks is disappointed

During this episode, Deeks has a major disappointment. He’s feeling hurt after his bar receives a negative review. This is a hard pill for Deeks to swallow, since the establishment is his pride and joy. This is the bar where the Los Angeles team comes to unwind after a long day at work.

During Season 11, Episode 20, Deeks is proud to show off his bar (which he describes as “the coolest bar in Los Angeles”) to Agent Devin Rountree. When Devin asks Deeks if he really owns the bar, Kensi says he only owns half of the bar.

“I am the brains of this operation, and he’s more like, you know, the spleen,” jokes Kensi. Deeks disagrees, saying he is a more functional organ, such as the pancreas. Sam jumps in and says Deeks is a lymph node and Fatima (Medalion Rahimi) says Deeks is kind of like the large intestine.

What happened during ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ Season 11, Episode 20

During NCIS: Los Angeles, Season 11, Episode 20 (titled “Knock Down”), the team joins forces with the Department of Justice. They assist the department with the investigation of an arsonist who is planning an attack on an FBI safe house. The safe house is hiding a political activist seeking asylum.

In addition, Eric is coping with Nell’s absence. At the beginning of episode 19, Nell told Kensi she didn’t want to be an NCIS agent anymore. However, both Kensi and Hetty recommend that she just take a step back instead of making a hasty decision.
