The Office of Special Projects was without a permanent operations supervisor for some time. NCIS Los Angeles Season 13 has the answer.
Nell Jones, Rene Felice Smith, took over temporarily for Hetty Lange (Linda Hunt), who was MIA while on an unknown mission in Season 12. The former analyst then left NCIS in its finale. Hetty was able to return, although Hunt was absent due to the pandemic. However, she is still in the middle of something. What does this all mean for OSP’s leadership in the future?
