NCIS: Los Angeles “The Dragon and the Fairy” Review

Tonight’s episode of NCIS: Los Angeles, called "The Dragon and the Fairy" starts with a young man getting himself shot while trying to run away from some mysterious men in an equally mysterious black car. I assumed that said young man would be a murder for the team to investigate but I was wrong. Instead he leads them to a ring of criminals running a sweat shop, as well as a man who’s planning some terrorist acts. Pretty impressive coming from a simple kid who can’t even speak English. But even though the team caught all the bad guys there were to be caught, I think my favorite thing they did in this one was to reunite an entire family, all three generations.

Talk about a fun way to give us some great team moments. I vote for games in every episode. Maybe next time they could try bowling…although I’m not sure how Deeks would do that in the car.
