NCIS: Los Angeles Recap: Chernoff, K.
“NCIS: Los Angeles” Season 6 Episode 24 “Chernoff, K.,” aired last Monday, May 18, 2015 at 10:00 p.m. on CBS. In the season finale, the team went with Arkady Kolcheck (Vyto Ruginis) in order to locate and rescue his kidnapped daughter, and so that they could stop the illegal sale of $80 million worth of crude oil. NCIS Special Agent G Callen (Chris O’Donnell) also dug more into his father’s past and made a shocking discovery. Read on to learn more about this episode.
The episode opened in Govorovo, Russia. NCIS Special Agent Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah), Los Angeles Police Detective Marty Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen), NCIS Special Agent Sam Hanna (LL Cool J) and NCIS Special Agent G Callen (Chris O’ Donnell) discovered that they had been beaten to Ivan Karposev’s (Paul Duke) house by three armed gunmen, whom they gunned down. Kensi and Deeks went after the lone gunman who had gotten away and Sam and G went after the SUV with Karposev and Anastasia “Anna” Kolcheck (Bar Paly). Their status was then reported to Operations Manager Henrietta “Hetty” Lange (Linda Hunt) and to Arkady Kolcheck (Vyto Ruginis). They were in Hetty’s safe house in Moscow, by Technical Operator Eric Beale (Barrett Foa) and Intelligence Analyst Nell Jones (Renee Felice Smith).
Back in Los Angeles, Nell discovered that two of the gunmen were Irish mercenaries, and Assistant Director Owen Granger (Miguel Ferrer) got Eric into the Kremlin’s security feeds.
At the warehouse where Karposev’s car had been left, they discovered that Anna had killed Karposev. Sam and G then took her to her father, whom she got mad at. Hetty then pulled her aside into the kitchen. He told her that she knew that Anna worked in private security after becoming a homicide detective in Chicago. He got her to agree to help them out in discovering who the sellers of the crude oil were.
Meanwhile, Deeks killed the lone gunman they had been after as he had been shooting at Kensi, who took a picture of his face so that Eric could identify him.
Afterwards, Arkady brought Sam and G into the back office of a hundred-year-old, yet still up and coming, café. It is where they met his former protégé, Pavel Volkov (David S. Lee), who still worked for the Kremlin. While Sam ran the names of the international parties who were experts in buying black market oil, who were in town for the oil auction by Nell and Eric, Arkady showed G a picture where his father was in, drinking the famed espresso of the café. Arkady then informed G that the man he had worked with in Russia had worked with him until 1988. It contradicted the fact that G’s father had been imprisoned in 1974, and that the picture on the wall had been taken eight whole years after he was supposedly incarcerated. This caused G to ask Eric to quietly use their resources to look up any new information that he could possibly find on his father.
Back at the safe house, they discovered that the auction was going to happen at a particular hotel, using anonymous representatives who would be in separate rooms during the auction. It was then discovered that the gunman that Deeks had killed was a member of ISIS.
Kensi and Deeks then intercepted the buyers from Cameroon so that Sam, Anna and G could pose as them. Hetty then left Arkady to audition as a singer for the hotel as a distraction. She hooked Eric up to the security system of the hotel so that they could gain access. It was also because they could tell where the buyers were staying, which they managed to do, with Anna staying in their supposed room. After Sam, G, Deeks, and Kensi got rid of their respective targets, they each plugged in a USB with a virus that Eric made so that they could track down the sellers, who, they discovered, were in the building. However, when they got to the seller’s room, they discovered that they had fled into the garage, where they and Anna intercepted them.
After a shoot-out occurred, Arkady, who had been shot, ordered them to leave him behind so that they could escape.
The next day, at a church where Hetty had once been married as part of an undercover assignment, G told Hetty that Anna was in the wind. She was trying to locate her father, who, according to Hetty, was still alive, and was better off in Russia.
Hetty then told G that she had looked into his father, and revealed that he had been alive until 2008. He had changed his name from Nikita Reznikov to Konstantin Chernoff, and was buried in a cemetery in the town that he lived in, which G visited. However, he was sad at the fact that his father had been alive when he had been in Russia.
After leaving the café, an old man (Daniel J. Travanti), came into the café, ordered an espresso. He toyed with the same coin that Arkady had as he drank his espresso.
