In this next "NCIS: LA," Hetty (Linda Hunt) sends the team to Afghanistan on a rescue mission after finding out from Granger (Miguel Ferrer) at the end of the latest episode that Kensi has disappeared and the Taliban could be holding her captive.

Right now, all we really have are questions. Who is the White Ghost? Before "Zero Days," the answer seemed to be Jack (Matthew Del Negro), Kensi's ex-fiancé, no question. However, after what he told her, we have our doubts. Unless that was all a ruse to try to find out who knows Kensi's there and who could be coming after her, he might not be the guy we thought he could be. And where is Sabatino (Erik Palladino)? He's been MIA, but he will be in this next episode.

The "Spoils of War" promo shows the team heading to Afghanistan to locate and rescue Kensi and meeting up with Granger, who warns Callen (Chris O'Donnell), "We're on our own out here." After all, they really can't trust anyone because there is still the matter of the mole. It's not going to be easy, and this team can get it done, but what will it take?

Plus, don't forget to check out the slideshow for the promotional photos CBS has released from this episode to see more of Sam (LL Cool J), Callen and Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) in Afghanistan.

"NCIS: Los Angeles" season 5 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on CBS. Do you think the rescue mission will live up to expectations? Head to the comments with your guesses about the White Ghost.
