Sometimes, Sam Hanna (LL Cool J) has a very complicated life.
After romancing Jada Khaled, sister of African terrorist, Tahir Khaled, on behalf of an NCIS: LOS ANGELES operation, Sam later was forced to let Jada exit the United States to rejoin her brother where she would face probable death.
Ella Thomas and Anslem Richardson reprise their roles as Jada and Tahir.
Tonight, Sam and Callen (Chris O’Donnell) travel to Africa to investigate extensive surveillance footage of the Hanna family, and the NCIS team springs into action to protect Sam’s loved ones.
Wife Michelle, son Aiden and daughter Kamran are taken into protective custody, whereabouts unrevealed in normal communications, as there seems to be a leak in the LA office. Only Granger (Miguel Ferrer) and two SEALS know where they have been relocated. Even Hetty (Linda Hunt) has been left in the dark.
Guest stars Tye White and Layla Crawford return as the Hanna kids with no mention of Michelle on the cast list. Her portrayer, Aunjanue Ellis, currently is on QUANTICO. Douglas Weston also is back as Alex Elmslie of the Global Criminal Tribunal.
Are a jealous Jada and her Al-Qaeda-affiliated brother responsible for the threat to Sam’s family? Jada fell in love with Sam during their time together and Tahir felt betrayed. Did Tahir really forgive Jada for divulging damaging information to NCIS? Is the enemy of his enemy Tahir’s friend, at least temporarily?
NCIS: LOS ANGELES also stars Daniela Ruah, Eric Christian Olsen, Barrett Foa and Renée Felice Smith. Additional guest stars on tonight’s episode, “Revenge Deferred,” are Dohn Norwood, Jovan Adepo, Wole Parks, Jean-Christophe Febbrari and Eme Ikwuakor. “Revenge Deferred” was written by Executive Producer, Frank Military, and Chad Mazero and directed by Rick Tunell.
