As a result, it’s expected that the future season’s pilot episode would be based on this already established premise from the ending of NCIS: Los Angeles Season 13 for the upcoming season, which gives a sense of continuation of the story where the viewers left off. The official synopsis of the episode states, “The NCIS team continues to search for Callen as they realize they’re being tricked by multiple deep fakes; Kensi and Deeks hear exciting news regarding the adoption.” 

*Spoilers Ahead*

We have highlighted some of the key plotlines from the episode, which will help to give you a glimpse into the plot in case you haven’t seen the finale and plan to do so without major spoilers. In the episode, the viewers got to see that, in a casino robbery, an armed UTV is deployed. Rosa has been approved to be fostered by Kensi and Deeks, and she will be able to move in that night. Raymond mistakenly believes that a woman on the street is his deceased wife. The crew is dispatched to the scene of a casino robbery. Amanda Chen, the sole eyewitness to the robbery, is interviewed by Sam and Callen.

On the other hand, Kilbride sends Kensi and Deeks to find Nina Barnes, a former arms trader. It’s being hauled on a tractor-trailer Knight Rider-style, according to Rountree. For Kilbride, she promises to hunt down the armed UTV. Sang, a Korean weaponry carrier, is under pressure from Sam and Callen. Sang offers to assist them in locating the UTV’s carrier. Nina learns the identities of the engineers behind a pair of armed UTVs. One of the men is found slain by Kensi and Deeks.

NCIS: Los Angeles Season 14 Episodes

Although the exact number of episodes for NCIS: Los Angeles Season 14 has not been released, we can expect it to be in the same range as past seasons, ranging from 22 to 24 episodes with an average length of between 42 – 44 minutes. Because the series is broadcast by CBS, the network’s television shows strive to keep a consistent episode count over seasons in order to maintain the story’s continuity.

However, because the number of episodes has varied from season to season, it will be difficult to forecast the precise number of episodes for the following season because it is up to the show makers to reduce or expand the season. As a result, we advise viewers to wait a few months for the network to confirm the titles of each upcoming season’s episode. In the meantime, binge-watch all the previous episodes of the recently aired NCIS: Los Angeles Season 14  on the streaming services of your preference.
