'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 11 Episode 16: Hetty makes an iconic comeback and fans can't keep calm
We all know a Hetty feature means iconic one-liners and the NCIS veteran sure didn't disappoint this time
Spoiler alert for Season 11 Episode 16: 'Alsiyadun'
Tonight's episode of 'NCIS: Los Angeles' is far from wrapping up for the week, but fans are already pleased with it and calling it a blessing simply because supreme queen badass Henrietta Lange, aka everyone's beloved Hetty, has decided to grace us with her presence. We all know a Hetty feature means iconic one-liners and the NCIS veteran sure didn't disappoint this time as she had some expert comment to make on making a person talk.
According to the official synopsis of this week's Episode 16, from Season 11, titled 'Alsiyadun', "When Fatima is captured while on a mission and held for ransom, Callen and Sam enlist a deep undercover CIA agent to help get her back." As Sam and Callen venture off to Egypt to rescue Fatima, Hetty is left behind in the NCIS headquarters with none other than Deeks, another fan favorite. In the course of their conversation, a very frustrated Hetty — riled up by people's lack of urgency — ends up telling Deeks, "I don't care if he's in a damn coma! Wake his ass up!"
While a lot of fans couldn't help but notice Hetty's increasingly demanding nature, most of them were also pleased with the way Hetty just expresses herself without caring for how her coworkers might react — a true uninhibited kickass, if you will. So, of course, fans did what they do best and took things to Twitter to establish just how iconic this Hetty comeback has been for the show as it stands on the latter half of its Season 11.
"When Hetty tells you to wake him up, you finna wake his ass up!!! Hetty finna whip your ass!!" shared a fan on Twitter, while another added: "Don't get on Hetty's bad side. Coma or not, call her back."
Noting all the major elements of the episode and how Deeks' attempts at calming her down only resulted in Hetty addressing him by his full name, a fan summed up the entire fandom's response as tweeted: "Hetty is HOME. That makes me extremely happy."
'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 11 airs on Sunday at 9pm only on CBS.
