Deliverance (2x10) recap

In the wake of Cole's murder, Hetty is determined to find the killers as well as the black book that has destroyed so many lives. Surveillance video from Cole's nursing home was disabled by the killers but a resident's nanny-cam helps the team get a grainy image of two men who Callen determines to be speaking Russian.

Mattias contacts Hetty to inform her that the CIA secured his release in exchange for the black book. Hetty knows with Mattias and the Russians now looking for the book the team must work quickly to find it before it gets into the wrong hands. Eric and Nell discover Renner (killed in episode #209) placed encrypted binary code messages as to the whereabouts of the black book. He placed the code in pictures he posted online several months prior to his death. They find the code leads them to a safe deposit box at a local bank.

Callen, posing as Renner's attorney, goes to the bank to retrieve the book until the team realizes they are not alone and have the CIA and Russians watching their every move. They try and execute a clever bait and switch but it doesn't go to plan and Kensi is taken hostage. Mattias pressures Hetty for the book and the Russians set a time for exchange the book fro Kensi.

Hetty has Nell create a fake black book in order to save Kensi from her Russian captors. The plan works and Deeks helps to rescue Kensi. Callen and Sam find out that Mattias is actually helping the Russians and Hetty decides to meet with Mattias to put an end to the search for the black book, once and for all.

Absolution (2x09) recap

An infamous arms dealer, Kurt Renner, is murdered and NCIS:LA goes in search of a black book known to hold the names of weapons dealers they believe the killers were after. An old enemy turned friend from Hetty's espionage days, Branston Cole, is discovered to be the original holder of the infamous black book; he gave it to Renner years ago for safe passage to the West. Hetty, who is protective of Cole, works on her own to try and find Renner's killers knowing Cole's life may be in danger.

Callen becomes very concerned with Hetty since he knows she is hiding something from the team and follows her. Meanwhile, Deeks and Kensi go to Renner's house and come upon two men claiming to be NSA Agents. Kensi hears a slight accent and knows they are lying and attacks the men catching them and Deeks by surprise. Her instinct was right and the men were French Intelligence; one of many foreign agents that have descended on L.A to find the black book.

Hetty slips away again and meets a man she calls Mattias. It is the man that killed Renner and he tells her what he really wants is Burgess not the book and he knows Hetty is the only one who knows where he is. When Hetty won't divulge his location, Mattias takes her hostage but Calllen and the team were following Hetty and Sam disarms Mattias, saving Hetty. Hetty, knows she has unfinished business with Cole since she was the one who shot him years ago putting him in the nursing home. She returns to his room is shocked to find him shot to death. The investigation into Cole's murder will continue in a future episode.

Bounty (2x08) recap

A newly retired Army Major from a elite Delta Force unit that tracked high value targets in the War on Terror is found tortured and murdered. NCIS:LA discovers the victim, Richard Booth, was planning on returning to the Middle East as a bounty hunter to collect millions of dollars in reward money. His son Brandon, who hated his absentee father, is a suspect until two Afghan thugs enter a restaurant and try to kill him while Callen and Sam are questioning him; they shoot the thugs but Brandon disappears.
Meanwhile, Hetty, Deeks, and Kensi question an intelligence informant for the U.S government with diplomatic immunity, Jafar Khan, who has made millions helping Booth's unit catch high value targets; he also happens to be Booth's brother-in-law. Jafar tells the team Booth was his partner and he planned to return to Afghanistan after receiving Intel which would yield them ten million dollars. Jafar claimed his loyalty to Booth but the evidence pointed toward Jafar hiring the Afghan thugs to torture Booth and kill him for the high value targets Intel. NCIS is working against the clock knowing they could lose Booth's killer and the high value target within a matter of hours.
The team's suspicions are validated when Eric discovers a spectron seal embedded in a picture Booth mailed to his son Brandon. It contained the location of the target and the time the Intel was valid. Callen and Sam, with the help of Booth's Delta Force unit, go undercover in Afghanistan and catch Jafar using the Intel he received while torturing Booth but Callen informs Jafar he no longer has immunity in Afghanistan and takes him into custody.
