NCIS: LA Season 7 First Photos: Callen Goes Rogue, and the Team's After Him

Callen puts the “G.” in “OMG” when NCIS: Los Angeles opens Season 7, as seen in these exclusive photos from the CBS drama’s Monday, Sept. 21 premiere.

Picking up three months after the finale, in which Hetty (played by Linda Hunt) informed/fibbed to Callen (Chris O’Donnell) that his father was dead, “We discover that Callen has been doing his own investigation into something,” showrunner Shane Brennan tells TVLine. And as a result of his rogue op, “He finds himself in a very difficult situation with Hetty and Sam (LL Cool J), because he’s not telling them what he’s got himself caught up in.”

Brennan says that although Callen’s agenda is ultimately revealed in the premiere (titled “Active Measures),” “It’s not resolved.” Rather, “In the tradition of this show, we plant the seeds of something to come, and it has a fairly major impact halfway through the season, in a double-episode.”

  1. Oh, this looks really exciting! And Callen with a beard??? Oh, you know he means serious business! Looks like they’ll be butting head from the get go. Bring it on, season 7! :-)

    Woo hoo, Angelic Bathmat pcitures! I’m excited for the premiere now!

    I am more interested in the Deeks/Kensie relationship because one future case it will come down to the relationship or the case. I know that in the real NAVY one will be forced to accept a transfer or resign!

    I am so sick of all the emphasis on Callen, they spend entirely too much time on his angst and its getting old. He is either lecturing his superiors or going rogue. Just no.

    Still waiting for the awesome badass arc where Deeks disappears (everyone’s worried, even Hetty, but especially Kensi) and 2 episodes later their case is a gruesome rampage of bad guys killed and a giant shootout (etc), and they catch on security camera Deeks with his head shaved (or some other very drastic different look involving his hair being shorter) and he is straight up taken down bad-guys but looks to have gone rogue and so they go after him to find him/stop him, eventually they get to him and he acts like they shouldn’t be here, they need to go away, and when back at the HQ the team (sans Deeks) learns from the Sec-of-the-Navy that he personally (over Hetty’s head) gave the mission to Deeks and that Deeks hasn’t gone rouge, but is on assignment taking down a major threat to the U.S.
    .
    I just feel like Deeks is RIPE for a badass story arc that involves his serious side, that involves him changing his “look” drastically, that involves Kensi getting REALLY worried and scared that he’s changed/died/broken bad.
    .
    Another possibility that would be cool is the same thing but they know he is going under-cover, but its with a REALLY dangerous group, he is gone for 2 episodes, and then in an episode they get a case and see him on security cam killing someone and like i said, he has changed, hes super serious, hair cut, clean shaven in a suit, looks like he has totally gone in too deep, seems to have a girlfriend, Kensi is jealous and really worried, the team and Hetty is worried, they go in undercover to check in with him and things don’t go well, for a episode or 2 it seems like he has gone bad, but in the end he was doing what he was ordered to in order to take down the top bad guy, and he succeeds (or maybe even fails so its a arc they can revisit, that Deeks can feel like he failed and has unfinished business).
    .
    Lots of possibilities with Deeks, LOTS with Deeks and Kensi.

    I am excited for the season start-up of NCS LA, but holy cow what or who is Callen pursuing, that he is going rogue??? Please let this resolve itself quickly, so I can see the whole team up and working together again with Callen standing right beside them. I get really anxious and now reading this article has made me nuts.

    I really think Callen is more attractive with longer hair. It works for his head shape. Can they keep it this time? Don’t shave it off, dude!
