Fairly early on in the episode, it was revealed that Bar Paly’s character was severely injured in the midst of an incident at prison. Apparently, she was beaten and injured and, in the aftermath of that, required surgery. Through most of the episode, Callen wanted nothing more than for her to be okay … though Arkady wasn’t 100% buying it. He still blamed Callen for her being in prison in the first place and, beyond that, questioned whether or not he was really innocent in what happened to her behind bars.

There was a nice closing moment at the end of the episode as Deeks and Kensi toasted to a wonderful holiday season while honoring those they lost, including Harley Hidoko and Owen Granger.
Also, are we going to see Nicole and Sam eventually get together? For the time being, that does seem to be a pretty strong possibility.
