NCIS: Los Angeles” Season 6 Episode 21 “Beacon” aired last Monday, Apr. 20, 2015 at 10:00 p.m. on CBS. In this episode, both NCIS Special Agent Sam Hanna (LL Cool J) and NCIS Special Agent G Callen (Chris O’Donnell) were surprised by someone that they knew very well died in a car bombing, and turned up alive and well in order to ask for their help. Read on to learn more about this episode.

The episode began with a man walking fast into a parking garage. He was confronted by a lone gunman. The police were then quickly called in after gunshots were heard, and after the man’s car exploded.

Meanwhile, NCIS Special Agent G Callen (Chris O’Donnell) dropped off his girlfriend, Joelle Taylor (Elizabeth Bogush) at her work. It was before heading off the NCIS Operations Center. Technical Operator Eric Beale (Barrett Foa) showed them the footage of Arkady Kolcheck (Vyto Ruginis) car exploding.

Because of this, Operations Manager Henrietta “Hetty” Lange (Linda Hunt) became concerned about G. Arkady was his only link in finding out about his parents.

At the car park, G found Arkady’s pocket watch. It was something that was given to every KGB agent. Given that they did not know who the body belonged to, G thought that it was possible that Arkady was still alive.

At Arkady’s house, Los Angeles Police Detective Marty Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) discovered two sets of prints on an old photograph that he then sent over to Eric and Intelligence Analyst Nell Jones (Renee Felice Smith). Afterward, on G’s advice, Deeks and NCIS Special Agent Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah) discovered a dead for a yacht hidden in an envelope behind a painting of a tree.

Meanwhile, at the operations center, thanks to Nell’s suggestion, Eric managed to figure out who exactly had walked out of the garage after the bombing. He couldn’t believe his eyes at what he saw. Sam and G also became just as surprised as Eric after Arkady walked in on them while they ate lunch.

He told them that someone had tried to kill him, but he had killed him instead. Since his car was rigged to blow, he blew it up and made everyone think that he was dead as he needed time to figure out who had had him killed. However, now, he needed protection. It caused Sam and G to act as his babysitters as they brought him back to the boatshed for questioning. However, he claimed that he didn’t know about any yacht which Kensi and Deeks were having tracked down by the Coast Guard.

Eric then informed them that the fingerprint that Deeks had recovered belonged to a former cop named Brett Smith (Dan Warner), who worked a private security company after he had been suspended in 2008. He had tried to kill Arkady that morning under instructions from the Berkeleys.

After Kensi and Deeks discovered that the yacht was actually a cargo ship that was currently in Caracas, Sam and G questioned Arkady about its contents. Arkady then told them that he had brokered a deal with some Russians and some Americans.

Nell and Eric then learned that the shipping company whose ship was being currently used in Arkady’s brokered deal belonged to siblings Elia Berkeley (Elena Avengelo) and Patrick Berkeley (Matt Stasi). They were both being watched by the Department of Justice. They then discovered that Smith had worked for them and that Smith probably reached out to Tom Keefer (Adam Meredith). He was the officer he had been suspended with, for several jobs. Kensi and Deeks then got his license plate and staked out his house.

Finally, after they brought in Hetty, they discovered that the Berkeleys were mad at Arkady as he was holding the ship. It was supertanker, from them as it contained one hundred million dollars worth of oil. They then instructed him to set up a meet with the Berkeleys at the Argyle Hotel.

Kensi and Deeks then followed Keefer to the Argyle Hotel, only to discover that Keefer was dead inside the trunk. The man who had gone up and targeted the Berkeleys, was a Russian hitman. The Russians were desperate for the deal to push through, but the Bekeleys became threats after threatening to cancel the deal. Thankfully, Sam managed to shoot down the gunman.

Hetty then told G and Sam to look for Arkady again after the tanker disappeared from all radar.
