A major player in the private-sector aerospace industry, Drewett, whose firm operates under contract to the US Department of Defense (DoD), dies inside a test chamber at his facility in Palmdale, California, near Los Angeles; Callen and company investigate, in part to determine the security of US military (DoD) technology. Eric goes undercover as an FAA inspector; G, Sam, Kensi, and Deeks, taking a more direct approach, meet Drewett's business partner, Holt, and Drewett's daughter, Ariel, who suspects murder and gives a name; Holt stalls, argues, and resists; Eric does nicely in his assignment but runs into a big problem. Later everyone in the field watches a big bang; the team find Holt's body, then they go to a flea market in Saugus, between Palmdale and Los Angeles, where they not only watch a transaction but also grab and detain all the participants in it. All the pieces fit together. Written by
Did You Know?
When the rocket explodes, the sound is heard at the launch site at the same time as the explosion is seen. As the vehicle is several miles up already, the sound should arrive with a noticeable delay, revealing it is a sound effect. See more
Anything useful on Drewett's cellphone?
Uh, it froze then melted.
So it... frelted?
