Sam’s wife is dead, but Tahir’s not done torturing him on NCIS: Los Angeles just yet. The season 8 finale, titled “Unleashed,” sees Sam leave behind his team, his partner and his badge in order to track down the man that has been targeting his family in order to make sure he never does anything to them ever again. But the team isn’t going to let him do it alone.
And that means putting their grief aside for the immediate future. When Nell wonders when they get to cry, Kensi tells her, When the job is done. When the bad guys are dead.” That’s when they get to stop and deal with their loss.
