Recently, the CBS folks delivered up a new press release/synopsis spoilers for their upcoming "NCIS: Los Angeles" episode 21 of season 8. They gave us one, big long storyline scoop for this one that sounds pretty interesting as we'll be seeing a highly decorated Navy captain, decide to kidnap a Veteran Affairs administrator over some money. This will, of course, prompt heavy, investigative action from Hetty and company as they'll have to team up with some other people to get the job done.

It's "Battle Scars"

Their press release also let us know that the producers decided to name this thing: "Battle Scars." They started off their official plot summary by telling us in, all-caps, that we'll be seeing Hetty and company decide to team up with some of her old, former Vietnam war colleagues to try and solve a case that involves a former Navy commander that has kidnapped a corrupt veterans affair administrator.

Siphoning funds

Next, they went on to elaborate on that storyline, telling us that the Navy Captain that's committed the kidnapping, was highly decorated at some point, and is named: Charles Langston (played by Carl Lumbly). They revealed that his reasoning for kidnapping the Veterans Affairs administrator, is for siphoning of funds. In light of this, we'll be seeing the NCIS L.A. team get forced to team up with a couple of Hetty's former Vietnam War colleagues to try to crack this case. The colleagues will go by the names: Admiral AJ Chegwidden (played by actor: John M. Jackson) and Admiral Sterling Bridges ( played by actor James Remar).

Will the NCIS L.A. crew and these colleagues be able to get the job done and work together in harmony?

Or will this partnership not work out too well, leaving the case unsolved? Those are the big questions for this plotline. Unfortunately, they didn't reveal any other details in this press release, so it looks like we'll have to wait for the episode to air to see how all this drama plays out. This episode was written by: Jordana Lewis Jaffe & Andrew Bartels, and James Whitmore Jr.

was hired to direct it.

Not until April 23rd

Well, that's all we have for this episode, for now, because that's all CBS would give up. However, they may release a new preview/spoiler clip after episode 20 airs, tonight, so be sure to look out for that as it will definitely deliver some new details for the new episode 21. Also, we do have a bit of bad news, because it's been revealed that episode 21 isn't scheduled to air until Sunday night, April 23rd,2017 at 9pm central time. Yep, they're skipping next week for some reason, so be sure to jot down that new date, and stay tuned.
