‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ season 7 spoilers: Sam searches for his former partner

NCISThere is no new episode of “NCIS: Los Angeles” airing on CBS Monday night, but that is not stopping us now from sharing some more scoop of what is coming up a little bit down the road here. We’re specifically talking about the upcoming November 2 installment, which is going to be a tremendous opportunity to see Sam take a case that is especially close to him. After all, his former partner is going missing!

This particular installment carries with it the title of “Unspoken,” which is an interesting name for a show that really is all about making sure information is passed along properly. Meanwhile, the synopsis below offers us some further insight into what is coming:

“The team searches for Sam’s former partner, Ruiz (Anthony Ruivivar), who disappears while buying a deadly explosive during an undercover operation.”

That may not be the most informative synopsis in the world, but it does do a rather good job of giving you a sense as to what the stakes are going to be. As with most other stories on this show, it is pretty life-and-death at moments. Maybe Sam and the rest of the team will be able to find Ruiz before it gets too late, but nothing is altogether certain.

One of the reasons to be particularly excited about this episode is simple: It’s being made in November. This more often than not is when networks really like to deliver on some of their biggest stories … at least long with the sweeps periods in February and May.
