If you are like Nell (Renée Felice Smith) and have been dying for details about Eric's (Barrett Foa) secret mission, you won't have to wait much longer.

It's the focus of the November 24 episode of NCIS: Los Angeles, "Kill Beale: Vol. 1," which sees Sam (LL Cool J) and Callen (Chris O'Donnell) travel to San Francisco to search for the tech operator after he's kidnapped during a clandestine mission for Hetty (Linda Hunt).

There are sparks with Moon Bloodgood's Katherine.

The CBS drama temporarily wrote Eric out of the beginning of the season due to Foa's theater role. And now the time has come for the team to be brought in to help him, which means finally finding out exactly what he's doing. In Episode 2, Nell told Kensi (Daniela Ruah) that while he's in San Francisco working as a consultant with a security technology company, she doesn't even see him when she's in the city visiting her mother.
