NCIS Los Angeles: Episode 8.05 Preview – Bar Paly returns in ‘Ghost Gun’

For those of who enjoyed seeing Bar Paly as Anna through much of the seventh season of “NCIS: Los Angeles,” we come bearing some great news: She’s going to be back sooner rather than later! Specifically, we’ve learned that she will be reprising the role on next week’s new episode “Ghost Gun,” which will shake-up the partner dynamics somewhat as she teams up with Chris O’Donnell’s Callen while Sam takes place in some other matters.

There could be some fun mixed in here, and in addition to that, there are some events that will likely unfold here that’ll have long-term implications on the remainder of the season. After all, the mole story is still at play!

Synopsis – “The murder of a navy machinist with high security clearance sends the team on a city-wide hunt tracking evidence. Also, Anna Kolcheck (Bar Paly) partners with Callen, and Sam assists Hetty in the on-going mole investigation.”

There isn’t much of an indication one way or another as to if we are going to finally resolve things on the mole front in this episode; to be honest, we’d be surprised if everything is tied together here. Just thinking about this from the standpoint of timing, remember that networks like to tie stories up that are significant during the November sweeps. Therefore, we wouldn’t be altogether shocked if CBS decided to hold off moving on to the next phase in the season 8 story until then. As long as there is a little more information handed down here, we’re happy.

If nothing else, we do hope bringing Paly back is something that the CBS show does decide to do on a fairly regular basis moving forward.
