** ''And then'' [[spoiler: Hetty sends Callen to question Joelle about the only other surviving mole, wherein Callen meets ''Joelle's husband and son'' (probably, she's a CIA agent so who knows). Hetty reveals she did this to make it easier for Callen to see the truth, heal, and move on.]]



*** [[spoiler: Finally confirmed after Nell and Eric go undercover at a couples retreat for techies and Eric reveals he fell in love with her when she joined him at a pub quiz.]]



** In "Queen Pin" [[spoiler: King the aspiring drug lord (who's actually a woman [[TrailersAlwaysSpoil whodathunkit]]) only learns that "Switch" is actually Hanna when she's fatally shot]].



* DontGoInTheWoods: While nothing bad happens to them [[spoiler: aside from nearly missing a speeding terrorist because their ride isn't as great]] Deeks doesn't like hiding in an RV in a campsite while Eric and Nell go undercover and cites the fact that "a lot of horror movies take place in the woods" as the reason for his aversion. [[TheLadette Kensi]], on the other hand, [[WrenchWench loves the RV]] and [[OutdoorsyGal loves camping]] (they agree that s'mores are cool).



* DysfunctionJunction: When a friend of Hetty's comes over to help out during the chaos of the mole hunt (wherein all non-essential agents are gone, the team is arrested by different agencies, Kensi is kidnapped, Granger is shanked, and most terrifying of all Beale is armed) he declares the LA office completely dysfunctional. Nell agrees:
-->NCISLA be totally cray, yo.



** 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.]]

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. It still takes them a while to actually tell them.]]



* HopeSpot: [[spoiler: Kensi is about to be defeated by her CIA agent captor when two agents appear to save her. After the commercial break it's revealed they're also rogue CIA agents and Kensi's tied up again.]]

* HopeSpot: [[spoiler: Kensi is about to be defeated by her CIA agent captor when two agents appear to save her. After the commercial break it's revealed they're also rogue CIA agents and Kensi's tied up again. Fortunately the team quickly dispatches all three CIA agents.]]



* MeaningfulName: In "Queen Pin" Hanna's undercover name is [[HeelFaceTurn "Switch"]] and the title drug lord (who goes by "King" to hide that she's TheManBehindTheMan)'s partner goes by "Zeus" (he lives in a community called Mt. Olympus).



* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Hanna has been cultivating an undercover identity to capture an elusive drug dealer called "King" when one of his contacts appears with King's money. Hanna reveals he's an undercover agent and forces the guy to work for him but when they meet with King's underlings it becomes clear the guy's too nervous to pull off the act so Hanna shoots him, wraps a rope and a cinder block around his body, and drops him into the ocean. [[spoiler: fortunately Deeks and his SCUBA gear were hiding in the water]]



** It ''seems'' that Hobbs the counterfeit purse seller is this, but he really is that stupid [[spoiler: admittedly hiding the names of a group of North Korean spies in his dog's ID chip is pretty clever]].

* OneHeadTaller: The LA Assistant DA in "Queen Pin" [[spoiler: He's "King's" (the title Queen Pin) backer, he uses his power to lock up rival drug dealers]].



* SickeningSweethearts: Deeks, listening in on the couples retreat Nell and Eric are infiltrating to get closer to a suspected hacker couple, is annoyed at the wife's story about her husband meeting her family, including her sister who had found an injure bird and loves animals so much and [dissolves into tears]. [[spoiler: Turns out it was a clue to the couples' situation: the sister had been kidnapped by terrorists in order to get the couple to hack into the IRS.]]



* StraightGay: Deeks meet a gay couple in "Neighborhood Watch". [[spoiler:Except that they turn out be Russian [=SVR=] sleeper agents.]]

** Also Hetty, but more of the "I could tell you but I'd have to kill you" variety. [[spoiler: It turns out she's related to a brutal Eastern European crime family that has been hunting Callen's. She risks her life to tell the head that Callen is dead, and as long as they don't look outside...]]

** And then [[spoiler: Joelle is revealed to be a CIA spy and part of the rogue CIA mole ring that's out to get the team (though she claims she was only supposed to observe Callen and had no idea about their plans to ''eliminate'' his team) and they're not so amicable anymore.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Kensi's rescue from the mole[[spoiler:s: Her captors are quickly gunned down and the rogue CIA agent who targeted her personally barely gets two words out before Deeks kills him.]]
--->'''Kensi''': [[DoubleTap Two shots to the head?]] [[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther You must really love me!]]

* AnArmAndALeg: [[spoiler: The Marine Kensi met in rehab was actually a CIA agent whose leg she unknowingly shot off while he was in disguise during a mission in Afghanistan and he's just itching for some payback]].



* BreakHimByTalking: The previous mole ''thinks'' he's like this but he's just annoying.



* CIAEvilFBIGood: [[spoiler: The current mole is a team of (rogue?) CIA agents whose operations were interfered with by the NCISLA team.]]



* DeathbedConfession: Variation [[spoiler: The LAPD AIB detective who's obsessed with Deeks' case thinks the only reason Deeks confessed to her is because she was shot in the neck and dying. Deeks assures her she'll be saved (sirens are heard in the background) but her fate is uncertain at the end of the episode]].



** A frame-up happens on a grand scale in "Hot Water" when almost the whole team gets caught by different agencies: Granger gets arrested by the LAPD; Deeks' case gets "new evidence" (that isn't revealed) by LAPD IAB; a dead body and drugs is found in Hanna's trunk by the DEA; Callen's house is raided by the ATFE who discover a dead body and stolen explosives; and Hetty, Kensi and the latest mole's operative are surrounded by an FBI/SWAT team at the boat shed. Oh, and because they wouldn't be a GovernmentConspiracy without them [[spoiler: The Mole's operative, the woman who attempted to seduce Granger and beaten to unconscious to frame him, reveals she's being controlled by [[CIAEvilFBIGood the CIA]] ]]. One positive note this proves [[spoiler: Duggan isn't the mole as A) Hetty realizes that catching the mole is more important to him than bringing her down and B) Duggan gets shot by a sniper as he's "surrendering" and the SWAT team clearly doesn't know who the sniper is]].

Also [[spoiler: It was actually Hetty's attempt to keep the team safe, though it's unknown if shanking Granger was part of the plan]].



** The true motive of the current mole, or at least a very important person in the mole's/moles' plot: [[spoiler: The team's adventures in the Middle East kept interfering in CIA operations and it caused a certain disguised agent to get his leg shot off by Kensi]].



** There's been two moles (one was captured and the other is currently at large as of 2016) and Hetty is really getting tired of this.

** There's been two moles (one was captured and the other is currently at large as of 2016) and Hetty is really getting tired of this. Agent Duggan is a good candidate for the current mole [[spoiler: until he's sniped]], but the mole is actually [[spoiler: a group of pissed-off CIA agents (including one the team rescued) whose operations were interfered with by the team's adventures in the Middle East]].


Added DiffLines:

** When Deeks, Hanna, and Callen are taken in by the LAPD IAB, DEA, and ATFE, respectively, their plans to get free are to make a deal, convince the agent to let him go, and attack the agent and become a fugitive, respectively.
*** TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: Deeks and Hanna apparently spent all night talking to stall or convince the people guarding them while Callen took a nap then popped his cuffs off.
