Two days after the burial of Dom, Director Vance tries in person to dissuade Hetty from resigning. At the Van Nuys Airport (west of Burbank and northwest of downtown Los Angeles), while two boys (aircraft fans) watch and record the flight operations, a bizjet arrives, three men emerge and meet another man (with a Suburban with black glass and a government plate), then an armed gang of thugs intervene, kill one Army MP in mufti and wound two other men, free a prisoner (Keshwar, the leader of the TaJ, who was supposed to be exchanged for Dom), and vanishes. Vance says, "There was a breakdown in the system somewhere". Callen and company join the Army CID in seeking Keshwar; G and Sam, teed off at the world, start tracing blood; Eric finds a needle in a haystack; Sam talks with him; in a cave Kensi finds cash and an explanation; Eric finds the van, which then explodes. G, Sam, and Kensi board a ship, lose Keshwar, and regain him, and G figures out the rest of the story. Written by DocRushing

13 January 2011 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

A surprise continuation of the highly anticipated "Found" that turned out a bit of a letdown, this one starts *very* promisingly with an intense action sequence. Though the User Rating (7.4 at the time of writing) is lower than that of "Found" and thus suggests that this will not turn out to be a winner like "Missing".

The appearance of Leon Vance is a boost (considering that in Season 7 of NCIS he is often absent), but when the dreaded Enhance Button trope once *again* appears roughly ten minutes into the episode (minus commercials), one feels that we are once more into the clichéd, well-trodden path of factual errors and not-so-compelling search of a person. Why is NCIS Los Angeles searching someone every other week? Can't we have clandestine operations, big illegal arms/explosives/drug smuggling, murders, conspiracies and politic power play? This show is too formulaic and not nearly as funny as it thinks it is. Also, WHY do the show-runners of every other TV show think CGI explosions and smoke (both of which require a lot of FX programming skill) work on a TV budget? There is a rule they should not forget: "Do NOT get over-ambitious. Stick to what you CAN pull of as realistic."

BUT! Thanks to Linda Hunt and Rocky Carroll, there is at least one scene of genuine character drama. On the action front, the pace is unforgivably sluggish. The "climactic" action sequence once again is unimaginative and full of clichés. At least the plot includes one attempt at a surprise, though an experienced viewer can see it coming way too soon... In the end, yet another 6/10 by-the-numbers episode. At least the show is consistent...
