When will 'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 Episode 13 air on CBS? Show gearing up for one month break in future
There are too many plots left opened and loose ends untied right now for 'NCIS: LA' to wrap up Season 12 for good
Viewers will finally find out what Anna Kolchek (Bar Rafaeli) has been up to in Episode 12 of 'NCIS: Los Angeles' on February 28. With Grisha Callen (Chris O'Donnell) being on the hunt for his missing girlfriend and their proposal looming like a sword hanging over their relationship, Anna's disappearance has been quite a mystery since he went to surprise her and found out she never checked in to the hotel she was supposed to stay at.
But before we find out whether that was deliberate on Anna's part, or if she really is in a dangerous mess, there's some bad news for fans of 'NCIS: LA'. Following the latest episode, the show is going on an indefinite break.
According to TV listings provided by the website Futon Critic, next Sunday, March 7 was supposed to air an older episode from the ongoing Season 12. The updated info on the website has struck off the Episode 3 title 'The Bear' and says "THIS LISTING HAS BEEN DELETED BY THE NETWORK AND IS NO LONGER VALID."
While that's not all that worrisome because the franchise has been notorious for taking random breaks every two weeks this season, what looks concerning are the upcoming Sundays without any episodes listed against them. Usually, the show has a retelecast or repeat episode listed even if there isn't a new one, but this time it's all just blank.
It's unlikely that 'NCIS: LA' is done airing for good this season because there are too many plots left open-ended and yet to receive closure. Like whatever happened to David Kessler, Kensi Blye's (Daniela Ruah) psycho stalker convict who threatened to kill her and have sex with her, not particularly in that order? Or what about Sam's (LL Cool J) daughter getting kidnapped and fighting her way out and escaping from her captors?
Episode 12, that's airing before the long indefinite break, will see Callen receive a cryptic message from Hetty (Linda Hunt), after which he tracks down the person tailing him, bringing him to a remote location teeming with Russians... and face to face with Anna. And the way things are going, that's the only plot expected to reach some closure on the show's arc right now.
With so many loose ends left untied, 'NCIS: Los Angeles' is expected to return with the latter half of Season 12 on Sunday, March 28. Futon Critic has that day listed as the next slot for the show's airing and while it's uncertain whether CBS will air an older episode or return with a new one, fans can rest easy knowing the journey is yet to complete.
'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 airs on Sundays at 9pm only on CBS.
