One of the things that NCIS: Los Angeles season 8, episode 17 seems to be most interested in is the concept of continuing to find ways to shake things up. When you are doing something like a long-running drama, clearly one of the last things that you want to do is present your viewers with something for so long that it starts to become a tad stale. That is why going into next week’s installment entitled “Queen Pin,” one of the big focuses could be on the Anna / Callen relationship given that much of that’s been sidelined over the past few weeks in between the mole investigation and also tonight’s episode featuring Martin Mull and a tribute to Miguel Ferrer.
As for how this story will play out, the description below offers you a few more details in terms of what is going to becoming up!
Synopsis – “Sam assumes a former alias in a risky undercover operation to take down an elusive drug lord. Also, Hetty interrupts Callen and Anna’s romantic night to assign them a prisoner escort mission.”
Clearly, this will be one of the most eventful episodes of the season when it comes to this relationship, but we also don’t want to diminish the excitement that could come from Sam going undercover. This is something that always tends to work well for the show. Sure, there are many times when these missions border more on the serious than the comedic, but there’s still a lot to like in them and a generous amount to explore.
In general, one of the exciting things about the remainder of the series is that save for an off week during the ACM Awards later this spring, odds are that there will be new episodes airing the vast majority of the time. This should allow us some opportunities to dive further into several different stories, and see if there is another big event planned for the end of the season.
