    Gosh, I found the finale underwhelming, and not nearly as emotional as I thought it would be. Once again, the writers gave us one conversation between Callen and Anna. The way the writers treated them was a joke, and I’m actually glad the show’s over. I couldn’t stand watching Gemmill disrespect that relationship anymore than he already has. Of course, Densi got their baby, and that’s a good thing, but that Morocco ending was silly. The finale for NCISNOLA was a 100x better imo (the special after was better, too).

  2. Believe me, I really wish there could’ve been a physical Hetty/Callen reunion, but that beautiful note that had me welling up inside is good too. 🙂 She really loves her familia. And now they finally get to go find her. (here’s hoping we one day get a big movie showing the big rescue mission!)

    I’m glad Densi finally got their little ninja assasain.

    All in all, no deaths, retirements or long time jumps, good enough for me. 🙂 Till we meet again, NCIS LA.

    And thank you for all these wonderful reviews!

    I disagree about Hetty’s note being beautiful (if it even was Hetty’s note because maybe Nell wrote it). There was nothing personal in that note to her “son.” She said she was happy about his marriage–something she would’ve said to any other member of the team. And her comments about “family” were generic. There was nothing about her feelings for him, being proud of him for becoming the man he’d become, wishing him a future of happiness with Anna. It was a cookie cutter letter. And then she asks him to leave his wife because she has an assignment for him. How typical.

  4. Completely disagree. When she talks about the team being her family, that also means Callen because he’s part of that family. And IMO, she doesn’t really need to outright say how she really feels about him all the time, he knows she really does love him, especially when she talks about the importance of family. She doesn’t play favorites, and I like that.

    And also, Hetty was the 1 who wrote that note, Nell only sent the tickets, and it was her idea to send those tickets because she needs their help in finding Hetty and bringing her home. They get to go find her now, which is what they should’ve been doing all this Season! But maybe there’ll be mentions of it in Season 3 of NCIS Hawaii and possibly a future movie on P+.

    They’re not gonna abandon Hetty, because they wouldn’t be where they are at now without her, and because you never leave a beloved team member behind when he or she needs help, and that was the 2nd part of the finale that pleased me despite the circumstances

    According to Gemmill (in his TVInsider interview), the letter Callen got at his wedding wasn’t written by Hetty. It was written by Nell, so it really WAS impersonal.

  6. Only in your negative opinion. Hetty loves her boy, even if you can’t see it
