While raiding a pawnshop in Hollywood, targeting a notorious Mexican drug cartel, a SWAT team from the Los Angeles PD kills two low-level cartel soldiers plus a wanted Muslim terrorist; the LAPD requests help from Callen and company, who then search for an alliance between the two rogue groups. G and Sam hear about Hoovers, but the FBI assures Hetty that they're not involved. The team talk with a Mexican police chief, who seeks a major player in the cartel; G and Sam learn that they're not the first; the gang visit a piñata store, where they find visitors, a firefight, and a body. Next Kensi joins the staff of the store and await the phony Hoovers; they all meet at the boathouse, and the guests, who are something else, send the team in quest of a special object at an ocean terminal in San Pedro, where two more men show up, and where confusion and fireworks abound; the team quickly move to a nearby shipyard, then they finish working out everything.

LAPD Captain John Duncan
Oh, Agent Hanna. LAPD's doing everything we can to find your car.
I'm just trying to ease your grief.
I'm not grieving. I'm pissed.
Denial's the first stage. That's natural.
...This is me *naturally* ignoring you.
