Storyline

Yesterday in Los Angeles, while a young man tries to enter the Vietnamese consulate, an unknown gunman in a passing car shoots him, injuring but not killing him; tomorrow the SecNav will attend a Southeast Asia conference at the same consulate; Callen and company investigate. While G and Sam visit the victim in a hospital, his employer shows up; his personal effects include the name of a Marine first lieutenant; as Kensi and Deeks approach the consulate, a car explodes; the car belongs to a local lawyer of Vietnamese descent who's a leader in a group seeking to introduce democracy and other human-rights reforms into the oppressive regime of the socialist government of Vietnam. G and Sam check out the tailor shop and follow a van to a second place, where Sam later drives into the building and saves many lives. The team figure out everything, discover domestic dissonance, eliminate bad guys, reunite a family, and shoot baskets while Hetty officiates. Written by DocRushing

Shark jumped

This episode had that "written and directed by one of the actors in the show" feel to it. Dialog appeared to be simply to fill the time (blather); miscast actors in minor roles; the first five minutes playing basketball (why?); odd pacing; It's as though the writers have run out of ideas, but they have to come up with something. If, as I suggested, it was a case of letting an amateur write and direct the episode I have to wonder why the owners of the show would take such a risk with a previously successful franchise. It certainly was not the best use of the on-screen talent. I used to look forward to the show, but I turned it off before the first commercial and it's unlikely I'll watch again.
