NCIS: Los Angeles season 11 premiere: Where are Nell and Eric?

NericWhere are Nell and Eric on tonight’s NCIS: Los Angeles season 11 premiere? If you find yourselves wondering about that, we come bearing answers!

Rest assured, we were as surprised as anyone to see that the two ended up being MIA during much of this episode, especially since we thought that the two would have a reasonably-prominent presence over the course of the episode. This episode was filmed earlier this spring, so it would’ve made sense to get Renee Felice Smith and Barrett Foa in there. (Foa hasn’t been on set as of late, but that is due to a theater production. He will be back at some point down the road.)

The writers did include a small little reference to why we didn’t see or hear too much about the characters in this episode, as they are still looking after Nell’s mother. Per the premiere, not much has changed insofar as her status goes.

In the end, be prepared to see plenty of Nell in the coming episodes. Even though Foa may be MIA for a little while thanks to his other work, Smith will be around to keep playing her character. In the process of that, we should get at least some sort of sense as to how her mother is doing. We are still bummed that there wasn’t more of Nell and Eric directly here, given that they are big components to this show — though we feel like some of their screen time was taken up by Harm and Mac and trying to resolve the JAG reunion story. We understand it, but we want to see a little more balance, as well, over time.
