The Dragon and the Fairytale (3x18) review by @phillydi DENSI-style
Hi gang! Welcome back to NCISLA Rewind. It's been a long two weeks, and if you are like me, you were biting at the bit to get to watch a whole new adventure with our favorite NCIS team. Tonight's episode, The Dragon and the Fairy sounds like the whimsical title for the next book from the Chronicles of Narnia series. Except we know better, don't we?! Written by Joe Sachs (Higher Power) and directed by Tony Wharmby (Special Delivery), the team’s mission is to stake out a possible terrorist attack at an international conference to be attended by the Secretary of the Navy.
The show starts off with a suspicious attack on a Vietnamese immigrant worker from the garment district. He’s not talking and the team suspects his fear is hiding a dirty and horrifying secret…. Human trafficking. As they continue their investigation they find a sweat shop operating in LA that supports a terrorist cell trying to discredit a pro-democracy group that has been speaking out against the Vietnamese government and exposing injustice. The team is intent on revealing the ties that the sweat shop has to the terrorist group and then stopping them from planning the attack at the conference.
