CBS hit Police procedural, Military action drama, NCIS: Los Angeles is currently airing its thirteenth season. The show debuted on CBS on September 22, 2009, and its ongoing season premiered on October 10, 2021. As of yet, the season has released fourteen episodes.
The previous episode, “Pandora’s Box,” came out on March 27, 2022, and the latest episode, i.e., episode fifteenth, hit the screens on April 10, 2022. It was titled “Perception.” Directed by Benny Boom, it is penned by Faythallegrea Claude.
The focus of this episode was actually on Caleb Castille and his character of Rountree, but not in the way that many would want. In this episode, we saw Rountree and his younger sister getting pulled over by police and treated harshly in a clear case of racial profiling. Also, NCIS investigated the death of a Navy photographer assigned to document the building of a new weapons station.
The episode shines a light on the problem of racial profiling that, unfortunately, still happens often throughout the United States. In presenting a case about this, there’s an opportunity to educate viewers who may not hear or see many real-life examples of this daily. It is also the event that could change Rountree for quite some time.
Fans of the show were very excited and happy with the result of the episode. In this, Devin was detained and pepper-sprayed by LAPD officers after being mistaken for a burglary suspect. Along with him, his sister, Jordyn, was held against her will.
Sam became the hero as he shared his thoughts and experience regarding this racism. The ending impressed the viewers, and they were thankful to handle things calmly and not in a violent way.
