NCIS: Los Angeles Season 13 Episode 1 Spoilers
The expository episode of the thirteenth season is named ‘Subject 17.’ As it often happens with the series, the season grips the audience right from the beginning. Although Hetty will be cautious in her every step, Callen might suspect her of keeping secrets about his past. We have already seen him getting on to something in the conversation with admiral Kilbride, who is not quite the biggest fan of Hetty.
In another development, Joelle will resurface to get hold of Katya. Meanwhile, the team must track down a key informant in a case. On the other hand, Kensi and Deeks will attempt to take a new step in their family life. It seems that there remains a lot on the plate for the new season, and here is a peek of what is to come!
