After weeks of looking for his beloved Anna Kolchek (Bar Paly) so he can finally pop the question and the two of them can be blissfully forever ever after, Grisha Callen (Chris O'Donnell)  finally finds her. But his follow-up actions have left viewers absolutely displeased. Right at the end of the show, Callen and the team are able to save and Anna and she is taken home safely so she can recover from the trauma of being kidnapped with life threats. But instead of rushing home to her as soon as he can, the ending of the episode saw Callen visit the hospital and sit next to his recovering ex-girlfriend - Joelle Taylor (Elizabeth Bogush), who returned to the show in the previous episode. And that had agitated fans enough to complain about this 'horrible ending'.

Titled 'The Noble Maidens', Season 12's Episode 14 of NCIS: Los Angeles sees “Callen and the team discover that Anna is being held by a group with ties to Anna’s childhood and must rescue her before she is forcibly returned to Russia. Also, Admiral Hollace Kilbride (Gerald McRaney) makes Nell Jones (Renée Felice Smith) a serious offer.” First things first - Henrietta "Hetty" Lange (Linda Hunt) is not returning and Nell's substitute position might soon become a permanent one - that's the offer Killbride makes her. Meanwhile, Marty Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) and Kensi (Daniela Ruah) also follow up on the case with his close friend Anatoly Kirkin (Ravil Isyanov), who dies protecting Deeks thus making the ending extra sad. To top it all off, Callen quashed possibilities of a reunion or a proposal by visiting Joelle instead. And fans did not take kindly to that.


'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 Episode 13: Is Joelle Taylor dead? Callen's ex suffers the most trying to save Anna

Why is 'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 Episode 13 not airing on CBS? Here's what to expect when show returns

"Why was Callen sitting in the hospital room with Joelle instead of with Anna after she was rescued?? Interesting," tweeted a fan, thus sparking the speculation of Callen going back to his older flame. All this back and forth about proposing Anna seems to have taken a toll. We know he isn't mad at her anymore, but will their latest fight be a breaking point in their romance?

Other fans pointed out "So instead of going home to be with Anna, Callen went to the hospital to be there for Joelle.....I really hope he went home to her first before going back to the hospital. This back and forth thing isn't cool!" One confronted the show asking "WTH was that end shot? Why would Callen be at the hospital with Joelle when we know she's ok & he has Anna waiting for him at home? He's got so much to talk to Anna about & work through. He should be home with Anna focusing on his future, not stuck in his past."















They weren't the only ones to slam the ending. "What a bad ending!! Callen sitting with Joelle?? Ugh!!," wrote one fan. Another chimed in "That’s a weird and horrible ending. Joelle? Yuck. I hope that isn’t Callen’s final choice. Booo." Let's not forget Joelle was in the hospital because she was trying to save Anna; all of this could just be immense gratitude on Callen's behalf because his ex didn't have to save the love of his life, but she still did. So maybe not everything is worrisome between him and his potential fiancee.

'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 airs on Sundays at 8 pm only on CBS.
