The ops geeks, Nell and Eric, will go undercover in Sunday’s NCIS Los Angeles season 8 episode 18.
The two will be sent as husband and wife in a couple’s retreat following a hacking in the U.S. Treasury Department. The crime will be linked to a tech-savvy couple who is attending the retreat.
Why not send Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) and Kensi (Daniela Ruah)? Since the case involves computers and hacking, Hetty (Linda Hunt) decides to send those who know this stuff.
Agent Callen (Chris O’Donnell) assures Eric (Barrett Foam) and Nell (Renée Felice Smith) that everything will be fine, but Kensi and Deeks are not convinced. Deeks will try to scare the two in going undercover by saying that the location could be a setting for a horror movie.
Fans have known that the LAPD detective and his partner/girlfriend enjoy doing undercover assignment hence, all the discouragement. Still, Nell and Eric will reconnect with nature and with each other.
In a preview trailer for NCIS Los Angeles season 8 episode 18, Nell and Eric are seen sharing one room and bed for the event. Since they can’t blow their cover, the two have to act as a couple including sharing a bed. Fans are thrilled to see how the two will play this out.
Nell is also seen in the video leaning on Eric for a kiss. This is probably their way to convince the other participants in the retreat that they are a real couple. However, it seems like the two are not really having a hard time pretending to be in love.
Meanwhile, digital forensics specialist Dave Flynn (Scott Grimes) from the NCIS cyber office in San Diego will run ops for the meantime while Eric and Nell are on an assignment. Anna Kolcheck (Bar Paly) will also come back this week.
NCIS Los Angeles Season 8 Episode 17 Recap
In last week’s episode, Callen and Anna worked in an assignment. Hetty interrupted their romantic night by sending them away to transport a high-value prisoner. The two were tasked to bring terrorist Ahmed Han Asakeem (Sammy Sheik) from a prison in Arizona to Los Angeles for deposition.
After several bumps in the road, Callen and Anna were able to reach LA safely with Asakeem. Eric then said someone has invested serious resources to find Asakeem. Hetty is determined to find out who that is.
Meanwhile, Sam (LL Cool J) assumed a former alias in a risky undercover operation to take down a drug kingpin referred to as King (Azie Tesfai). Sam later found out that the King is actually a woman.
Nell and Kensi meet with LA District Attorney Frank Gibson (Bruce Thomas) to talk to him about the drug bust. The NCIS team later uncovered that Gibson is Zeus and not his assistant Shawn Wilson (Devon Michaels). Sam confronted him of being Zeus and arrested him.
NCIS Los Angeles season 8 episode 18 airs on Sunday, March 19 at 8 p.m. in CBS.
