The team came fully armed and they stopped the prisoner from being taken out by the mercenaries. Elias Highlight of the episode was the final gun fight scene. Callen had found his partner and Sam had been okay yet it seems there was some information that Sam found that he knew he should share. Having the squad attend the candlelight vigil rather than going drinking at Deeks' bar was an effective change of pace. There was one fatality of a guy that tried to leave with his stolen items from the concession stand and there had been two children that had been close to the following blast. Valentine Frank Military January 13, 2019 2019-01-13 1013 8. She found out the two men were airport baggage handlers.
Soundtrack for the episode was great as well, especially final scene at the vigil. He meshes well with the other cast in my opinion. Deeks and Kensi research different honeymoon locations. So maybe, just maybe, the terrorist angle was all, as the title suggested, a smokescreen. It turns out the target was a person. It had to be someone else who wanted it to look like it was the Mashriq Army and who had an endgame that was entirely their own.
We got to find out more about Ochoa, who took on the assignment in the midst of a family crisis. There were no cameras and so the team had no idea who pulled off the bomb, but they could ask the person they did have and that meant Wasim Ghulam was questioned. Like I said, underutilized, after such a promising start. It could be as simple as it seemed -- she's young and inexperienced and was just overwhelmed by the continuous developments in the case. The man had seemed scared and so Sam believes Jalal would have taken their help if he could.
Obviously, he's never been stuck in a room with Deeks. He thought it would be safer to drive away from the planes as well as any sources of oil and he made it just barely. Everyone that had been trapped inside was told to move to the main lobby, but there had been a few stranglers that tried to ignore and leave through the back door. The only one that Wasim could think of was Omar Azim. He didn't seem much like a zealot seeking his 72 virgins in heaven. The transfer had apparently never come from Washington and so it was ultimately revealed that Special Agent Ross had been operating on his own. With another attack averted, the team began to question whether the Mashriq Army was involved at all.
Extremists stole crates of assault weapons, then used explosives at a matinee at a movie theater. Deeks and Kensi prepare the bar for a fundraiser while Callen recovers from a gunshot wound and bonds with his sister Alex's son. There was an exchange of fire before one of the terrorist tried to run off and so Callen went after him. The mysterious contents of the Box is revealed, Hetty returns and Kensi and Deeks finally get married. I don't blame him for wanting a break from bombs. Her one memorable scene was her confrontation with the hospitalized terrorist, even though motormouth Deeks conducted his true torture.
Callen got both of the brothers out of there and soon everyone had been cleared to leave through the front door. Fatima made a point of how much she enjoyed working with the team, so I have to wonder if we have seen the last of her. Best 2-part episode in a long while! Under Secretary of the Navy Felice Waterson, yet another Navy brass with attitude came west on a fact-finding tour, and Ochoa offered up the highest praise for the team, saying to leave them alone. Yeah, seven deaths were terrible, but it could have been so much worse. It is revealed that Nell's mom has heart disease and her entire family is looking to move to San Francisco for a new treatment.
The team looked for Azim for information on Jalal, but they found him dead at a warehouse. Let's hope that's the end of that. Neither of them had been high in casualty and so what if it was the attacks were a smokescreen. I fear that Mosley will have to return at some point, so her situation can get resolved. Sam remembered how Jalal looked in his final moments.
She wasn't nearly as well-versed on South African mercenaries. Fatima affirmed that jihadists wouldn't work with South African mercenaries. Scott Gemmill November 4, 2018 2018-11-04 1006 7. Still, the fake baggage handlers failed badly at blending in. Esai Morales was fantastic once again in the episode. Scott Gemmill March 17, 2019 2019-03-17 1017 8.
Sam and Callen dressed for the part. They must have been important somehow and so the team had Nell did a background search to see where the guys worked. The attempted bombing at the airport made so much more sense, terroristically speaking. It turns out their guy Abbas Jalal might not have been the bomber. And once again Kensi took down a fleeing thug with sheer ferocity, while Deeks trailed behind. I know he's got a good track record at defusing bombs, but drive first, defuse second should be his standard procedure. And that meant the next bomb was going to be placed on a plane.
The real bombers would have needed clear sight to Jalal and so he would have been across the street at a restaurant. That's no way to rack up a body count. This episode, in her limited screen time, she served to rubber stamp various theories that team members had. Also, the fate of Agent Hidoko is learned. Would be a great permanent addition for the show.
