"Code of Conduct" wasn't originally planned to be the NCIS: Los Angeles Season 11 finale, but it certainly worked as one.

After the 22 episodes of the season that we got, most members of the team — including a character who could be joining the squad — were left with decisions to make about their futures, both past and present. And Hetty's (Linda Hunt) eventual retirement is something that would affect everyone.

Writer/director Frank Military also discusses Hetty's replacement, a baby for Kensi and Deeks, a return of Harm, and more.

Also, Kensi (Daniela Ruah) and Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) have quite a bit to think about when it comes to their family and careers, Nell (Renée Felice Smith) has to figure out what she wants to do, and surprisingly, Callen (Chris O'Donnell) may be in a position to settle down.
