    Some intriguing things and some action throughout, but I can't go out and call it that great an episode when we know this show is capable of much more.



    They tried, but it just came off as mediocre.
  • NCIS try to find out who wants to kill Hetty.

    This was a very good episode when NCIS find Hetty is in danger and the case they are working on is linked to Hetty It seems we just keep learning more things about Hetty each episode and like she said she has made a lot of people angry so anyone could want her dead but all was revealed in the end but Hetty denied knowing the woman probably because of what Hetty did.moreless
  • VERY good!

    This was a downright Brilliant episode of NCIS LA with some phenomenal developemnts in a very interesting case. The very first scene was organised really well, and I just didn't see that cigarette lighter coming!



    Kensi in the escort place was pretty funny, and there were other funny moments too, such as Hetty's swear jar funding her vast collection of tea(s) and the last agent who tried tarcking Hetty having a permanent lisp. That was epic!



    The case itself was really intriguing, with a great look into the past. I still don't like Granger, but I enjoyed a look at Hetty's past. I only wis h that the car had made the clean getaway, as this storyline would've been really great over two episodes, but it did well as one episode anyway.



    A great episode, and I look forward to more!moreless

    This episode was better than last weeks I thought, very good storyline. I like Miguel Ferrer as an actor but in this role of Assistant Director Owen Granger, i find him to be arrogant. But if the writers have created him that way, well he plays his role very well & believable. His father Jose Ferrer was a wonderful Hollywood Actor. Very entertaining.
  • I like it

    Was very good. I enjoyed it where Kensi had to distract the 'madam' (would have been hard to do - if in real life - ugh) so Deeks could get the computer info - but more so when she left & deeks tried to give her a hard time about it

    - -- But show also showed that Revenge over your father's death is Wrong. - It only leads to more deaths....moreless

    • Granger: So, would you do it again?
      Hetty: Without hesitation, Owen. Two lives saved hundreds of others.
      Granger: Well, Potter planted the bomb, but it was your finger on the detonator.
      Hetty: Not everyone can do what we do. The secrets we live with, the personal sacrifices we make. I just pray the world's a better place for them. I didn't choose this life, Owen. It chose me. All you can do is keep your head down, your gun up and your conscience clear.

    • Nell: Somebody is out there trying to kill her.
      Eric: I know, we've got to stay cool. This is Hetty, right? She's always three steps ahead of everyone. She's tactically brilliant, ridiculously courageous, experienced, resourceful. I mean, if Mata Hari and Genghis Khan had a daughter, it'd be Hetty.
      Nell: Or General Patton and Joan of Arc.
      Eric: Exactly. Her kung fu is strong, and her magic is powerful. Say it.
      Nell: Her kung fu is strong, and her magic is powerful.
      Eric: Don't underestimate Hetty. She never underestimates us.

    • Callen: She blew me off.
      Sam: I ignore you all the time; it never bothered you before.
      Callen: Something's up.
      Sam: Something's always up with Hetty.
