The next episode of has plenty of drama in store, from Anna (played by Bar Paly) and Callen (Chris O’Donnell) sorting their wedding plans to Kensi () and Fatima (Medalion Rahimi) having to jet off for a new investigation. However, thanks to a preview of the episode from , it looks like Kensi is less than impressed with NCIS Hawaii’s Lucy Tara’s (Yasmine Al-Bustami) return to the island as it directly relates to the new case on the LA team’s desk.
The sneak peek opens with Kilbride (Gerald McRaney) and Siya Dahr (Javi Ramachandran Ladnier) going over the details of another apparent suicide on the SS Allegiance.
“What have we got?” Kensi says as she enters the room alongside Fatima before Siya fills her in: “This is petty officer, first-class, Eli Wassner - electronic technician on the SS Allegiance. He was found hanged this morning in a hold onboard.”
“Hmm, suicide?” Fatima asks before Kilbride informs her: “Unconfirmed. But the Allegiance has had two suicides in recent months.
“SECNAV has tasked us with investigating to determine is Wassner’s a third,” he adds.
Fatima is more concerned with the details as she asks: “Did Wassner have any family?”
Siya reveals: “He leaves behind a widow in Los Angeles. His parents and the rest of his family are in central New Jersey.”
“Any history of depression or any other mental illness?” Kensi probes to which Siya answers: “Not that I can find any record of, but if he did he never sought treatment.”
Fatima continues the questioning: “History of gambling or recent money losses?”
But Siya revealed she found “no red flags” with the deceased’s history before Kilbride then demands to know where Callen and Sam (LL Cool J) are .
However, he’s soon told he had insisted they take their annual leave.
Kilbride gets back on track as he demands Wassner’s widow is taken to the boatshed to meet Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) and Rountree (Caleb Castille): “Maybe she has some insight as to what led to this.”
And now that Lucy Tara can’t help them, Kilbride tells Kensi and Fatima: “Agents Blye and Namazi, Santa Monica airport, we’ll get you a bird, fly out to NAS North Island, hopefully, the Allegiance can have a cod waiting there to help you out to the carrier.”
