The finger that was delivered to Special Agent Callen (Chris O’Donnell) isn’t the end of CIA Officer Joelle Taylor’s (Elizabeth Bogush) pain when NCIS: Los Angeles returns from its current brief hiatus on March 28.

As you’ll recall, Russian spy Katya (Eve Harlow) is back, and she wants Callen’s girlfriend and ex-government agent Anna (Bar Paly), who, while working undercover, had been her cellmate in prison. In the last new episode on February 28, Katya proposed a trade — Anna for Joelle — but didn’t deliver … until a package containing the CIA officer’s finger was left for her ex-boyfriend Callen at the LAPD. And now the photos for Episode 13 of Season 12, “Red Rover, Red Rover,” show that’s not the only injury Joelle will sustain while she’s Katya’s prisoner.

Also worrisome? The vest strapped on Joelle. It’s a good thing Sam (LL Cool J) knows his way around bombs.

We finally find out what Anna's been up to — and it involves Russian spy Katya.

In this upcoming episode, the team “must offer up Anna as bait to Katya” to rescue Joelle; it looks like that may work this time, as opposed to the attempt to do so in “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.” Also, the logline teases, “Callen finally discovers who accused him of being a Russian spy.” Considering Callen has a long list of enemies, the possibilities could be endless.

Scroll down for a look at “Red Rover, Red Rover,” including the attempt to make a trade, Anna’s father Arkady (Vyto Ruginis), and more.
