'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 Episode 7 Spoilers: Callen tries to talk with Arkady but is he engaged to Anna?
Titled 'Overdue', the episode teases a conversation between G Callen and Arkady, a former colleague whose daughter Anna is overdue. Are we getting an engagement finally?
'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 Episode 7 will be the first episode since the show returned from its weeks-long winter break. Before the break, we saw everyone's favorite LAPD agent Deeks lose his job and how that led to difficulties in his personal life as his wife, also an agent — Kensi — decided to put their house on the market.
At this time, the two were also trying to have a baby together and the thrill of watching the fan-favorite couple navigate the rough waters together as they figured out if Deeks will ever have a chance to return to his team is going to be one of the plotlines that the show will concentrate when it comes back.
The main theme of Episode 7 of 'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 is about the team investigating a man who sold confidential military information and how that leads to a kidnapping case of a scientist whose discovery could revolutionize the world of weaponry.
The official synopsis of the episode is as follows, "The NCIS team's murder investigation of a man who sold military information leads to the abduction of a doctor whose cutting-edge neurotechnology could be developed into advanced weaponry; Callen tries to have an important talk with Arkady."
With a conversation hinted at between Callen and Arkady Kolcheck, we are certainly going to get more of a look at Callen's past than before. What is this conversation that the show is hinting about? What we know so far about Callen's past is that he and the Russian KGB agent Arkady had worked together on a case that had led to one of Callen's colleagues' death. The operation named 'Cossack' had been a disaster.
We also saw how in the episode named 'Legends', Callen was shot and the same day saw other colleagues who had worked with him on 'Cossack' show dead as well. He was the only survivor along with Arkady and we all know how much Callen has issues with trust. After learning about Arkady living in Los Angeles, he also learned that Arkady had approached Alina Rostoff, the only relationship that Callen has salvaged from, to inform her that Callen's life is in danger.
Unfortunately, Alina, who did not know that Callen has survived the attack wanted to avenge his death so she was trained by Arkady in surveillance. The two had inspected businessman John Cole as the man behind the attack and Alina had begun surveilling him too, but she did not last too long. She was killed a day after.
Callen, while investigating his sister's death learns that the person behind Alina's death and his attack was none other than Ethan Stanhope, one of his colleagues from operation 'Cossack'. Turns out, he was also the one who had betrayed their team during the operation in Russia as well. Alina was not watching Cole but Stanhope who had faked his own death to avoid becoming a suspect.
For a while, fems had also speculated that Arkady could be his father especially after the investigation into Callen's family was headed by Hetty and Arkady, however, we believe that he could be someone who knew Callen's father because of the picture that we saw of young Arkady with a man featured during this episode.
Since then, Callen has begun a romance with Arkady's daughter Anna and the promo of the episode teases an engagement between Callen and Anna, so this is also why the talk between the two is very important.
'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 Episode 7 airs on CBS at 8.30 pm ET.
