Vengeance (3x19) review by @mokibobolink for @tvequals

In this episode of NCIS: Los Angeles, called “Vengeance,” the team has a task before them that I did not envy for one second. Starting out as almost any normal case, they are out to find out who murdered an ensign and put his body in a testing range for explosive, but what happens after that is anything but ordinary and starts to pull the group apart. Turns out that the suspects in the crime are the man’s unit, a team of SEALs that are set to leave for a very important rescue mission – a mission that only they have the knowledge and skill to complete.

This is where things get tough. Like “rock and a hard place” kind of tough. Our people must investigate the murder because that’s what they do, but at the same time they know that delaying the team means putting innocent lives in danger. No one is in a more difficult position than Sam. As Kensi put it at one point, Sam is forced to investigate his “family” and it’s not easy. Callen doesn’t want to give the men any special treatment but nor is he immune to the fact that there are lives depending on those men.
