Storyline

A lance corporal in the Marine Corps Reserve, assigned to an armory at Camp Pendleton, dies of garroting; he was an informant for an OSP agent about the disappearance of six Dragon anti-tank missiles from the Marine Corps Base; Callen and company investigate in the absence of Hetty (while she testifies in Washington, DC). While Kensi sniffs around, the suspect and a private, Scott, attacks her with a garrote, but she proves to be one tough chick; Scott goes to a brig, as do G and Sam in undercover roles (G as a fellow prisoner and Sam as a guard); during a staged breakout from an armored paddy wagon, G bonds with Scott and infiltrates his group (which is a renegade militia). Scott directs G to an armed camp, and Sam arrives in a different role; fun and games abound, as do subterfuge and an air show. G and Sam intercept one of the bad guys with the missiles, and finally the cavalry arrives; a frightened young man switches sides and calls his mother. Written by DocRushing

Goofs

When Kensi uses the laser attached to the M4 Carbine to signal Callen and Sam using Morse code, she uses the laser pointer to 'flash' on G's head. However, when the views zoom in to show the scene through the scope, the lines indicating where the gun is aimed is about a foot above and half a foot to the left of the laser is aimed, indicating either the scope is not dialed in, or the pointed isn't adjusted for range. Either mistake would make the device useless, meaning the scope isn't able to function properly, or the laser dot wouldn't show the proper trajectory. See more »

Quotes

Special Agent Sam Hanna: [Realizing Hetty's not in Ops] Are you punking us? Because you better not be!
Eric Beale: No sir. I would not be!
Special Agent Mike Renko: Then where is she?
Henrietta 'Hetty' Lange: [On the speaker phone] I'm everywhere Mr. Renko. Or have you been on assignments so long you've forgotten?
