The NCIS: Los Angeles
season 4 premiere, called "Endgame," airs on September 25, but there's a new behind-the-scenes video, plus a new season promo video, that gives us quite a few hints as to what we can expect to see this season.
In the first video, Eric Christian Olsen and Daniela Ruah spill the beans about what will be happening in the first episode. They reveal that the episode will resolve the storyline from last season's cliffhanger, but also take the story in an entirely new direction.
In the second video, we see a few scenes from the episode, giving us some tantalizing tidbits from the episode.
Here are a few things we know after watching both of the videos.
Hetty really has retired
I don't know about you guys, but that's the first thing I figured would be fixed. Heck, I didn't think she'd even get the chance to deliver the letter. I sort of expected Vance or maybe Granger to give her a stern talking-to and let her know that retiring wasn't an option, not for something like this. Hetty has the retire when she wants, but to do it because she feels like she failed is awful.
Granger is in charge of the team
With Hetty retired it does make sense that Granger would be running the team, which should be interesting to say the least. I've never gotten the impression that he's got the team's back the way that Hetty does. Seems like with Granger in charge, if something goes wrong he's likely to throw them all under the bus. I know that I'll be counting the days until Hetty is in charge once again.
Callen really is under arrest
I realize they could still be pulling the wool over our eyes, but it looks like those of us who were theorizing that maybe Callen didn't really shoot the Chameleon (as in, the whole thing was staged for some super-secret reason) appear to be wrong. Looks like Callen did do it and he's in big trouble for it.
The premiere opens a Pandora's Box of questions
The big "reveal" apparently won't resolve anything so much as it will open up a whole new Pandora's Box full of more questions. For instance, there's teeny tiny clip of Callen getting beaten by a bunch of guys in what looks like a basement. If he's under arrest then he would be in police custody and there's no way they would do that. So where is he? Did he get sent somewhere else? Why are they beating him? Or is that all part of a flashback and not something that's happening in current time?
Also there's the question of Sam and Callen's partnership. According to the video, Callen wants nothing to do with Sam, but why? Is it because Sam tried to stop him?
