Wonder if this was filmed back when the show went through it's co-vid scare, with LL testing positive. So, Sam was completely off... And the cast and the storylines was all over the place, and in their pods. Of Kenzie and Deeks on the ship, and everyone else back at head quarters but in separate little groupings.

It sucks for Kenzie and Deeks to have to investigate that kind of case.

And Hetty is up to no good, and we got some answers into Callen's past. I never been a fan of Callen and Anna, but I liked that scene with them, as she has gone through similiar issues, and she has more together than he does, because he does not know what it all means...

I liked to seeing Nate. Kilbride definitely knows Callen's past, and he's right, we have to be worried about it exploding...

Very well could have been filmed back then. Would make sense why things were done they way they were. Agreed with everything else you said.

One thing I thought was weird, I felt like they just kinda dropped the Kensi & Deeks case they were working on. They took the guy into custody but it was weird how they left that I thought.

And Roundtree was off mysteriously for two episodes, and now back. So, it was back in December... And why Syria was featured so heavily...

And Callen was off the reservation in his own little investigation, with Anna who was suddenly back.

I was wondering if Kenzie and Deeks might end up foster parents to the baby, but it does not look like it will be the case.

And given the scattered nature of the stories. It was a easy way to end. Getting the guy, but the other stories have more meaning, so Callen getting clued into his Russian fake.

It was a interesting episode.

It was definitely an interesting episode. I also thought they would have K&D foster the baby but nope. I thought that about the migrant girl as well.

Is Callen looking for Hetty a new thing or what his plan all along is?

So now we have Roundtree back but Sam is gone?

So someone got pregnant, went through the nine month pregnancy, & had a baby & nobody knew anything? ok then...

Nice to have a Nell mention in the episode

Anna & Callen are cute. I really like the beach scene.

Nate is working with Hetty? Interesting. Wonder if that means we'll see him again this season then... even Kilbride's request for help is potential for future storylines... or just a mention of Nate again

Figured the direction this case would go would be that the baby's father was a rapist. The more we heard about the mother the more I thought it so no surprise for me when the mother says it.

Oh good to know that yelling out 'I have a bomb' gets Callen & Roundtree nowhere . Oh even a fight & still nothing

The episode description had me thinking that maybe Deeks & Kensi were going to adopt the baby. But like how it turned out still too. Almost had the baby named after Kensi

Oh good now we're getting the connection to how the previous episode ended... there's a shock for poor Anna


This episode felt a little disjointed. There's also too much going on. Is the Hetty bit & whoever is pretending to be Callen connected? Or two storylines we're supposed to be remembering & paying attention to?

I also agree that they seemed to have dropped the case. Wonder what happened with the rapist? Did he really rape her or was the father someone else? Or is this continuing in the next episode too?

I think they said the baby was premature. So, it was not the full nine months. But it would be funny given the uniforms they wear, to think someone could hide an advanced pregnancy.

As I said before, I think it was filmed back in December when the show was going through a covid outbreak of sorts, with LL Cool J testing positive. So, it could be why the stories was disjointed.

I think they were pretty sure that guy was the guilty party, DNA test pending.

Yeah I forgot the premature part. But I think the amount of weeks they said & the size of the baby didn't add up either. The baby looked more full term. But even less moths it still seems odd that no one knew. Unless she was one of the lucky ones who didn't show & then the baby came before she started showing.

It could be covid but they did things fine last season so why not now? I guess they had planning before & this time they didn't have as much & would have had to change things. But it still felt like a poorly put together episode. Missing parts, two or three stories being told...

Of course casting often does not go perfectly with what is said, especially with babies. Yeah, the baby looked pretty near term. I guess they wanted an appearance of a real baby in the part than the dolls shows sometimes use.

I think it had pieces of stories that are obviously going to play into the future. It was more glaring, because Roundtree was missing for no good reason, and now back, but in the recent past, Sam and Callen have sometimes traded airtime although Sam had been there more. But obviously if it was around the time LL tested positive, and the show then went on a hiatus, they had to quickly put pieces in that might not have high lighted as much.

Bringing Hetty's old friend/rescuee Keene, who I had to look at twice to remember how Callen knew him.

It was a interesting episode, but definitely and oddly structured one.

It is always weird when certain episodes are structured differently.

I feel in this case a doll would've been better. But maybe you can't get a premature doll either . A real one shows more impact though. You just can't use/hire a premature baby just because you've got a premature baby character

I don't mind so much characters going in & out. We get that sometimes. Then with covid added in it is to be expected. Although I think we only know for sure LL was out because of covid. Not sure if Caleb Castille also was out from it?

I think it was more than oddly structured. I wonder if they scrambled & put pieces together. Then just didn't realise how out of place the pieces were & what was missing
