Definitely...


Watched the episode

It was nice to see the cast back in business... You could tell that they had to keep with the covid guidelines, but they did a pretty good job still...

Again, I'm not saying anything about the actual episode as long as I'm the only one who has seen the episode

I thought it was pretty good.

I like the new credits!

Even though you know they were following Covid protocols, they did a good job at also not showing it because I couldn't tell sometimes. I am glad they went that route because you know a lot of shows are going to incorporate it into their storylines.

Nice seeing Akardy again!

Nice way for them to bring Nell back into play.

Oh nice that the new credits includes everyone Cool scenes they've picked for each of the characters too. Even the final shot feels a bit COVID-friendly since its not a group shot like normal. Nice that they've got everyone though

a bit eerie watching Nell walking into an empty NCIS. Oh no Nell's mother passed away
I like how they've included Hetty still & it doesn't feel like its just filmed on her driveway. If you didn't know you wouldn't guess
Sounds like Nell reached the end of her holidays & didn't return? But Hetty's dragging her back in...

"Where's Hetty" "No idea" - pretty sure that's the reoccurring theme of the entire show, aren't they tired of asking?

Nice use of screens in this episode to allow characters to interact but still have COVID restrictions. At least so far isn't feeling too out of place in the show

Eric gone because of what he was working on last season? Are we going to get Kill Beale Vol II?

Glad Rountree is now a special agent

Fatima: "There's not one, but three separate accounts, of a small humanoid creature going through dumpsters in El Segundo."
Callen: "I think we know that guy."
Sam: "I think we arrested that guy."


I like Nell getting them a helicopter & them trying to double their expense accounts with her too

Arkady Love how he asks why the bar is closed

Rountree: "Follow her in my food truck?"
Fatima: "Either that or Uber."


There's a few great one liners in this ep

Kelly Clarkson & Randy Travis Deeks? Ok then ... Can't complain about another Kelly reference though

Sam & Callen at the end

Its completely up to you, but just so you know that's not necessary. As soon as something has aired its open for discussion. People can choose if they read comments before they watch an episode - & their own fault if they spoil themselves on things by doing so

Yeah, I know but I still prefer to wait a few days to allow time for the others as well to watch the episode "as it airs"...


I totally missed the new intro...

No, the "Where's Hetty?" question will never get old It's just like Gibbs & his boats

I'm kind of happy that Nell's mother had died off screen

Nell is the unofficial assistant director was a nice touch... She did a great job

Rountree & Fatima are fun And Fatima has many great lines...

I caught the Kelly Clarkson bit too

Fair enough. Just so long as you know you don't need to


The new intro:



Yeah it is probably for the best that she did die off screen so they don't dwell on that so much still sad though

Fatima's lines were amazing in the episode

Thanks for the intro! (The episode version I watched had probably cut out that part to shorten the video... )

The new opening looks cool, and I liked the scenes they added for the new members... Rountree and the car bomb was a pretty impressive stunt in the first place
