Despite mixed reviews, the show became a solid hit for the CBS Network. So combining the elements of military drama with the police-procedural plot, CBS renewed the show for a thirteenth season.

It seemed like the murderer was killing them one by one, This led the team to dive deep into what they were investigating to find out about the murder of Yuri Kirilenko’s son. Despite the efforts, the end saw the murders to be fake and a way to escape the trap of Yuri. Anyway, let’s take a look at everything that happened here, and then we will move on to see what we can expect from the upcoming NCIS: Los Angeles Season 12 Episode 18.
Recap For NCIS: Los Angeles
Previously on NCIS: Los Angeles, we opened up to the murder of Lt. Commander Susan Sorenson of the Office of Naval Intelligence. Apart from the case, the team also heard of David Kessler’s return. Furthermore, he is pardoned. The team keeps the case aside and works on the Sorenson murder for now. The case had captured the attention. So Joelle was assigned to the case. She believes the torture Sorenson went through could have led to the leak of important information.
The killer professionally deleted every evidence of him entering to meet Susan. But a bartender confessed to watching the person’s face and got back to a sketch artist. Meanwhile, Joelle broke down a similar case with the murder of CIA Officer John Bradbury. Talking to Sorenson’s boss revealed that she was seeing someone, and she was out of town the same time Bradbury was. Diving deep into the investigation came to the conclusion that Bradbury and Sorenson were actually working together. Along with them were CIA Officers Paul Winters and Steven Erdnase.
The team split but couldn’t reach Winters in time as he died with the detonation of a bomb. Joelle believed the murderer is also trying to take out NCIS so it’s better to not report the case updates. Erdnase on the other hand is still missing, so the team looked into what the task force was investigating on. This led them to realize the task force took down the son of Yuri Kirilenko. So he is hunting them down.
With only Erdnase to save, Callen and Joelle made it in time. Erdnase confessed Kirilenko’s son is alive. They faked death to escape Yuri Kirilenko. The end of the episode saw Officer Behr and all the dead officers from Sorenson to Winters come alive as they faked their death. NCIS investigating the case was just a cover-up, to be honest. The episode ended with Callen finding out Joelle knew everything from the beginning. Plus, Kensi suggesting Deeks for adoption as they tried for baby several times.
