Gerald McRaney is back on NCIS: Los Angeles for the third episode of its 11th season.

And while the retired Navy Admiral, Hollace Kilbride, has helped the team in the past, this time, he'll be needing some assistance from them. In "Hail Mary," airing on October 13, he'll have Callen (Chris O'Donnell) and Sam (LL Cool J) as his protection detail during an operation to find a missing Naval intelligence officer.

And as you can see in the photos in the gallery above, they'll be taking the job very seriously.
