It’s Thanksgiving Week, so Outsiders, will there be a new episode of NCIS: Los Angeles on this Sunday night on CBS? Let’s see.

According to TV Guide, the answer is yes. The episode is titled Sundown. The episode’s synopsis says that Sam, played by LL Cool J, negotiates and Rountree, played by Caleb Castille, goes undercover. Rountree is on the hunt of a man who takes a busload of hostages and threatens to blow it up. What will keep him from doing so? The man wants his daughter’s war crimes posthumously cleared.

An article from Matt & Jess helps fill in other details.

So, another storyline to watch on this NCIS: Los Angeles episode is Kensi and Deeks’ adoption plans. Daniela Ruah and Eric Christian Olsen play Kensi Blye and Marty Deeks, respectively.

Both are on a stakeout, in a sense, as they look at other prospective adoption parents going to meetings.

Kensi and Marty are going through the different steps in the long process. Both of them, though, are concerned that they are not good enough to be parents.

They watch couples go in there and start sizing up themselves against them.

Will Kensi and Deeks get some news by the end of this episode? Outsiders, we don’t know. So you will have to tune in on Sunday night and see for yourself. A reminder: NCIS: Los Angeles usually comes on at 9 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. Central, on CBS. But NFL games are taking place on Sunday afternoon and might run over into the primetime schedule.

We want to remind you to check and see when this episode will air.

Others in the show’s cast include Chris O’Donnell, Medalion Rahimi, and Gerald McRaney.

Show Producers Reveal What LL Cool J Is Called On The CBS Series’ Set

This autumn has been a whale of a party for LL Cool J, who plays Sam Hanna on NCIS: Los Angeles.

The rapper/actor was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for his musical work.

So, he’s been around on the CBS crime drama since its first season. Still, it’s interesting to note what is his nickname on the show’s set.

We turn back to an Outsider Q&A with NCIS: Los Angeles producer Chris Molnar and NCIS producer Richie Owens.

Molnar was asked about LL Cool J. He said members of the cast and crew don’t call him by his rap name.

He said that “[his] real name is James Todd Smith, we’ll call him Todd on set.”

Back in 1984, James Todd Smith adopted the stage name LL Cool J and went out and made music history.
