Exclusive NCIS: LA Finale First Look: Um, Why Is Hetty at the Morgue?

The supersized Season 3 finale of CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles will send Hetty to the morgue albeit without a toe tag, but nonetheless for what can be no good reason — and TVLine has a first look at the grave moment.

In this image from Part 2 of the two-hour season-ender, titled “Sans Voir” and airing May 15, Linda Hunt’s ops manager is called to the place no one ever wants to visit, in any capacity. The reason (reasons?) why, though, for now is a mystery.

Also, I spy two bodies above. When I asked NCIS: LA showrunner Shane Brennan about the season finale death that TVLine scooped earlier this year, he countered, “What makes you think that only one person dies?” He went on to say that “for fans of the show, it really is quite a surprise what we do.”

Brennan urges viewers to make a point of checking out the first promo for the finale, which will debut at the close of this Tuesday’s “Neighborhood Watch” episode (in which Deeks and Kensi pose as suburban marrieds) — saying that as revealing as it may seem, “It’s just the tip of an iceberg.”

All told, across the two-hour span, he tallied, “There are… two… three.. four, five different moments that could serve as a season finale.”
