"NCIS: Los Angeles" season 5 is going to be celebrating the holidays in episode 12, "Merry Evasion," and on Wednesday, Dec. 4, CBS released promotional photos teasing what to expect.
In this "NCIS: LA" episode, the team searches for a motive when a Senator's daughter is attacked, and (unsurprisingly, if you think about it) Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) and Nell (Renee Felice Smith) partner up to help Sam (LL Cool J) and Callen (Chris O'Donnell) bring the daughter to safety. Meanwhile, Kensi (Daniela Ruah), who has been reassigned overseas (you can see a tease of her mission in the "Iron Curtain Rising" promo), receives the perfect holiday gift from one of her co-workers, and it's hard to imagine that co-worker being anyone but Deeks, especially given what happened between them before she was reassigned. Also, Erik Palladino returns as Sabatino.
The "Merry Evasion" photos in the slideshow offer a look at the team in LA, and it looks like Nell is once again going to be undercover. Plus, check out Deeks protecting the Senator (John Getz) and Michelle Trachtenberg guest starring as the Senator's daughter, Lily Lockhart, with Sam and Callen.
"NCIS: Los Angeles" season 5 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on CBS. "Merry Evasion" airs Dec. 17. What do you think of these episode 12 photos?
