As CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles uncorks Season 6 — premiering Sept. 29, in its shiny, new Mondays-at-10/9c time slot — it appears that Hetty’s trip to Washington, D.C. may be (gulp) a one-way ride.
As showrunner Shane Brennan shared during our Fall Preview Q&A, “The story takes Hetty to Washington, where she faces some very hostile questioning from a Senate committee trying to get to the truth of what happened in Afghanistan and whether Hetty was acting outside her job description, so to speak. And then we discover there’s more to this, that in fact Hetty is being targeted by someone. And that actually puts her life in danger.”
Indeed, based on the exclusive promo above, it looks like that ominous “someone” has hit their target’s bull’s-eye — and as you well know, that the team back in L.A. won’t stand for their Hetty being hurt!
