Thankfully, Callen soon learns his short-statured boss had used a child who had been killed to fake her death by planting her ID on the body.
She’s now presumed alive and well, and Callen and his agents could have to embark on a dangerous mission to recover Hetty from Syria by the end of season 14.
So far, Linda’s return to the series has yet to be confirmed by CBS, but hopefully this latest clue means her iconic stint as the beloved NCIS boss is far from over.
NCIS: Los Angeles season 14 returns Sunday, January 2 on CBS in the USA. A UK release date is yet to be announced.
