** Mr. Fanservice: Deeks in the pool in the ChurchOfHappyology episode and in the fall 2016 premier when a wannabe terrorist forces him to strip ("Really?!") so he does it as slowly as possible to give the team time to catch up.

* HeroicSacrifice: Non-fatal version (hopefully): [[spoiler: In part two of the fall 2016 season premier Hetty declares herself to be the mole to Agent Duggan to spare her team from getting into too much trouble for carrying out an illegal air strike in Syria in Duggan's name. Even Duggan knows [[SenselessSacrifice no one would think Hetty is a traitor for even a second]] but he can't resist.]]
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Granger gets rather annoyed when Nell thanks him for letting her "tag along" on a mission -- he didn't let her "tag along", he brought her because she's a capable agent and ''she should never forget that.''

* DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou: Being on the hit list of a notorious crime family on top of being a CIA agent who helps people escape from dictatorships and who knows what else is a fairly understandable if not forgivable reason.



** Narrowly averted in "Glasnost" when [[spoiler: Garrison allowed himself to be captured by thugs hired by a Russian contact to tie up loose ends before he takes higher office (they believe) because they were targeting a woman and her son who turned out to be Garrison's daughter and grandson/Callen's half-sister and nephew and had already killed Garrison's lover. At the woman's funeral Callen decides to tell his new relatives the truth about who he and Garrison are ("No more secrets"), to which Garrison agrees.]]



** Fans are disserved again when Eric theorizes that [[ShipperOnDeck Granger is romantically involved with suspected North Korean spy "Jennifer Kim"]], who is young enough to be his daughter [[spoiler: and is in fact his ''actual'' daughter]]. Nell, who has no idea why Granger is so interested in the spy, quickly shoots that theory down.

* HiddenHeartOfGold: CIA Agent "Garrison" may seem cold but he's got a nice side since he's [[spoiler: helped hundreds of people find safety and donated millions of a Russian agent's ill-gotten gains to various charities. Callen won't forgive him for "abandoning" him and his sister but he does understand why]].



** [[spoiler: ThereIsAnother... or was: Callen had a sister; unfortunately she died and only called him "little brother". His father might be alive as well.]]

** [[spoiler: It's also implied she knows and would rather spend one day in her home country with her brother and be doomed than the rest of her life safe and isolated and miserable in a strange land (Wisconsin). Fortunately when she returns to Africa she's saved by her ''fiance'' -- a Somalian general who rescued her from her brother's compound]]

The LA team is headed up by Henrietta "Hetty" Lange, a diminutive woman with a penchant for fashion and more connections than most people could dream up. G. Callen (O'Donnell) and Sam Hanna are both field agents and best friends. Hanna is an ex-Navy Seal while Callen carries some emotional baggage over his childhood spent in foster care and not actually knowing what the "G" in his name stands for. Rounding out the team are junior field agents Kensi Blye and Dom Vail, who haven't seen quite the same CharacterDevelopment as the leads, but just give it time. The LA branch also boasts its own tech wizard in Eric Beale. A new role for the franchise is that of an operational psychologist, Dr. Nate Getz, whose job it is to evaluate the team's mental stability.

The show is now in its seventh season.
