NCIS: Los Angeles Sneak Peeks: Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Beautifulby Melissa J. L. Smith Sciuto / October 5, 2015
Guest star Douglas Weston returns tonight as Alex Elmslie who was last on the NCIS: Los Angeles canvas as an agent for the Global Criminal Tribunal.
Elmslie worked with Sam (LL Cool J) and Callen (Chris O’Donnell) in the extraction of Jada Khaled, sister of a Sudanese warlord responsible for the mass deaths of his countrymen and on a kidnapping.
The Global Crime Tribunal is responsible for trying war crimes at The Hague, and a massacre would be in Alex’s wheelhouse. Tonight, the investigation of a 20-year-old Peruvian massacre is on the docket, and Elmslie joins forces with the NCIS: Los Angeles team to work the case.
One of the survivors of the massacre is now a famous fashion model, Catalina Diaz (Arienne Mandi). Kensi (Daniela Ruah) and Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) go undercover as the model’s assistant and chauffeur, respectively, in an attempt to save her from being a potential target.
Hetty (Linda Hunt) has a chance to bring out her costuming and directing skills (recently seen in the Scorpion crossover) to run Catalina’s photo shoot while taking the opportunity to explain to the young woman why she is in danger.
Meanwhile, Callen and Sam go undercover as IT techs pretending to repair the Wi-Fi at the Global Criminal Tribunal office where the receptionist is such a flake that one only can hope that she is undercover herself.
NCIS: Los Angeles also stars Barrett Foa, Renée Felice Smith and Miguel Ferrer. Also guest starring on tonight’s installment, “Driving Miss Diaz,” are Bertila Damas, Fernando Rivera, Janelle Marie, Fernando Luis Vega, Billy Mayo and Phoebe Neidhardt. “Driving Miss Diaz” was written by Andrew Bartels and directed by James Hanlon.
NCIS: Los Angeles airs tonight at 10pm ET/PT on CBS.
