‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ season 8, episode 16 preview: A Miguel Ferrer tribute; Martin Mull guest-stars

Granger -

Tonight, “NCIS: Los Angeles” could either be stopping or temporarily pausing the story of the Mole, given that for the first time in several weeks, there is no clear indication that they are revisiting it on the next new episode of the show. You’re also going to be waiting for a good while to see it come on the air.

Based on the new information that is out there about the show’s March 5 episode entitled “Old Tricks,” more of the focus for the story is going to be seeing a pair of con artists who are out to take the elderly for a ride. Much of this feels almost straight out of “Better Call Saul” given what Jimmy McGill has been up to on that show when it comes to elder law and his work there during the first season of the show.

If that doesn’t interest you alone, know that the show also features two interesting guest stars in Debra Jo Rupp and Martin Mull, comedy icons who should add a nice dose of levity to everything that we end up seeing over the course of the hour.

Synopsis¬†– “After a retirement home resident is kidnapped, the NCIS team uncovers a pair of con artists: Ginger and Edward O’Boyle (Debra Jo Rupp and Martin Mull), who hop from home to home scamming the elderly out of their money. Also, Callen confronts his father on his illegal activity and the danger it places on their family.”

This episode is also going to be the one that will feature some sort of in-episode tribute to the late Miguel Ferrer, who passed away earlier this year and was still filming new episodes relatively close to his death. Ferrer will also be given a title card at the episode’s end. The reason why the show waited on the latter was as a means to do so in the most appropriate fashion.
