A DEA agent from earlier this season is going to be back for the season 5 finale, "Deep Trouble," on "NCIS: Los Angeles." On Friday, May 2, CBS released promotional photos teasing what to expect from the team's last case before the show breaks for the summer. Oh, and by the way, the description teases a "cliffhanger," so there's that to look forward to. At least it can't be anywhere near as cruel or brutal as last year's, right?
In the season 5 finale, the NCIS: LA team and the DEA uncover the cartel's plans to slyly transport billions of dollars' worth of cocaine to the United States from Colombia using a submarine. It's going to be up to Sam (LL Cool J) and Callen (Chris O'Donnell) to locate the missing vessel as quickly as possible.
With the DEA back, so is Mercedes Masohn as Talia Del Campo, who was seen earlier this season in "Fish Out of Water," working with Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) while Kensi (Daniela Ruah) was in Afghanistan. She told him all about how she once had a partner and had to make a choice – and chose the DEA – and seemingly served as someone representing one path Kensi and Deeks' relationship could take.
Meanwhile, Hetty (Linda Hunt) is going to be busy when she's called to Washington in the aftermath of the controversial mission in Afghanistan. After all, she chose to send Kensi to "hunt down" the White Ghost because she knew she wouldn't kill Jack, and in the process, she risked her agent's life and nearly lost her because she didn't give her all the information she needed going into the mission.
The "Deep Trouble" photos (so far) in the slideshow focus on the case in Los Angeles. You can see the team in HQ at work, plus Sam and Callen probably finding the missing submarine. What else are they going to find?
"NCIS: Los Angeles" season 5 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on CBS. "Deep Trouble" airs May 13. What do you think of these photos?
