‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ 14×20 Review: “New Beginnings”

  1. You 100% hit the nail on the head with how important it is to have Hetty back for this wedding! Even just showing up at the reception would count. She deserves her happy ending with everyone else. She’s THAT important! This team wouldn’t exist without her, it’s important to have her there!! Otherwise, like you said, what would be the point?

    As for the episode itself, I was, bored the whole time. The case just felt like it was endlessly dragging. And i just wanted to hear about Hetty.

    I did like the nostalgic looking opening theme though.

    I loved the credits! They’re a nice homage to the series’ characters. The episode, other than the “family” scenes, was boring. Pretty clear Gemmill thought there’d be a season 15 & he was going to drag out the Callen & Anna wedding–or maybe not even have one (the only reason we got a proposal was because he thought 13 was the end). I never much liked the Nina Barnes character & I liked her even less after her comments to Callen in this episode. She was so bitchy toward Callen. I know a lot of people won’t agree with this, but the focus on Densi–their engagement, their wedding, their infertility battle, their parenting–has been great for Densi fans, but for viewers who aren’t Densi fans (like me although I like Kensi & Deeks), it’s been frustrating/boring because they’re the only characters who get this much attention. Callen & Anna are getting married next episode, & they had ONE scene in this episode. They haven’t had even seriously discussed their future together. What a joke. Even Sam & Raymond had two scenes in this episode, & Raymond joined the show last season. Anna’s been in the show since season 7. Sure, the Callanna wedding might be a big part of the final episode, but it SHOULD be. This is a MAJOR event, every bit as important as the Densi wedding because it’s Callen getting married, the main character who’s been a loner his entire life. That’s not true about ANY of the other main characters. And their wedding’s going to be a rush job–and Hetty might not even be there. The writers wasted so much time on “wedding planning” instead of writing meaningful scenes where Callen & Anna talked about their future. It’s been really frustrating.
