1.16 “Chinatown”

NCIS:LA has to investigate the apparent suicide of a Naval Officer named Calvin Lee, who jumped off a freeway overpass. Traffic camera footage makes it clear that he was alone when he jumped, but because Calvin was the XO of a high-tech submarine, Sam and Callen must investigate him to be absolutely sure Calvin didn’t compromise anything before he died.

 

Calvin’s parents immigrated to the U.S. from China in order to escape the one-child laws in China. They have an older daughter to whom they no longer speak. Calvin was apparently engaged to a Chinese national, but the marriage was arranged by his parents and Calvin is gay. When they get to Calvin’s boyfriend’s apartment, they find him murdered, making them suspect it’s a case of murder-suicide. However, evidence leads them to a Chinese hit-man, apparently hired by Calvin’s fiancée. They also find the device Calvin threw over the bridge before he jumped. Turns out the device is a hard drive cloner devised by the Chinese government, leading them to conclude Calvin was a spy for China. They question his parents further and uncover that though Calvin was born and groomed to be the perfect sleeper agent, he didn’t want to betray the U.S. and committed suicide to avoid being forced to.

    Love this show and all the characters
    Please do not get rid of deeks and don’t send
    Him back to LAPD he’s perfect for the show he makes it funny. The show wouldn’t be the same without him

  2. Tara says:

    Congrats to Eric & Sarah on their impending journey into parenthood.

  3. Laura says:

    Theory: All season they have been hinting something will happen to Deeks and next season they are going to focus on him like they did with Sam this season, Kensi last season, and Callen the season before.
    I think something is going to happen to Deeks, probably while protecting Sam’s family.

  4. Stephanie says:

    Happy Birthday to the “Midnight Star”!!!

  5. Tara says:

    Both parts for the pilot were okay. There is only so much a writer can squeeze into a pilot episode when it comes to introducing the characters and the vibe of the show so I will wait to reserve my final judgement of the show if it gets picked up by the network.

  6. Mistri says:

    You have no idea how that made my day, what with season-ending cliffhangers coming up.

  7. tara says:

    Loved this episode. Dave Kalstein who wrote, and Larry Teng who directed, made an awesome team along with the cast, really brought this storyline to life.

  8. tara says:

    I can’t wait for this episode! I can’t wait to see what exactly Hetty & Nate are posing as while undercover.

  9. Tara says:

    My thoughts exactly! Talk about not figuring out that Sam’s wife was also a federal agent till the episode was more than halfway done. I think I may be a little slow on the uptake. This episode definitely kept me on the edge of my

  10. Tara says:

    Do we really need another spin-off? Look at what happened when CBS agreed to a spin-off of Criminal Minds. It didn’t work. CBS got lucky when they spinned off NCIS from Jag, than spun NCIS LA off from NCIS. But something tells me this spin-off of NCIS LA wouldn’t work. I thought Shane Brennan left NCIS to focus solely on NCIS LA. I hope NCIS LA doesn’t suffer with this spin off.
