Here’s another collection of questions, interviews, photos and videos for NCIS: Los Angeles, Criminal Minds, and NCIS. (Spoilers after the jump!)
Here’s a group of photos from the set, featuring Linda Hunt (Hetty Lange), Chris O’Donnell (G Callen), LL Cool J (Sam Hanna), Barrett Foa (Eric Beale), Daniela Ruah (Kensi Blye), Eric Christian Olsen (Marty Deeks), and Peter Cambor (Nate Getz):
There’s a new entry in the NCIS: LA Insider’s Blog, about next week’s episode, “Omni”.
Check out this interview with O’Donnell from Splash. Here’s an excerpt about NCIS: LA:
It’s funny, I never ask what’s coming up. I don’t even know what my [character’s] name is. It’s fun not knowing. Every week we get new scripts and every week you learn something new about the character.
Here are three tweets, two from Executive Producer John Peter Kousakis, and one from Miguel Ferrer (Owen Granger):

Coming to the end of another good day. Writing for Granger is very unpredictable this season and therefore a lot of fun.

I’m so excited that Prentiss is back on Criminal Minds! Details! — Ashley
ADAM: Prentiss’ return is still being worked out, but with JJ in jeopardy, it’s not too far-fetched that the BAU might call on Prentiss for help. Or could she appear in flashbacks? As previously reported, the episode will reveal the truth about what went down between JJ and new section chief Cruz (Esai Morales) during her time in the State Department. “We’re going to use different perspectives to show what was going on at that time. … That [old] case will inform our current case,” showrunner Erica Messer tells us. And how will fans react to the reveal? “It might change how you view JJ,” Messer says.
And here’s a tweet from Brewster about returning to Minds:
Super excited about ep #200 of CM ! ( Thanks for keeping the secret, my friends )

Executive Producer Gary Glasberg spoke to TV Guide about the exit of Cote de Pablo (Ziva David) and what’s next for the rest of the team. Here’s an excerpt:
You’ve stated before that there’s no replacing Ziva, but what can we expect from the people who will be sitting at her desk in the coming weeks?
Glasberg: In the next episode, we have some fun with Roma Maffia. She plays an agent on the verge of retirement who adds a unique energy to things and a lightness, and we have a terrific time with her. You’ve got Agent Borin [Diane Neal], a Coast Guard agent who comes back and fills that void in a really interesting, fun way. You’ve got McGee’s new flame, Delilah [Margo Harsman], who steps up in one scenario and participates more. We have some fun with some guests, and I’m really excited about that, and I think it works really nicely. And then we get to November, and everyone gets to meet the NSA analyst, Eleanor Bishop [Emily Wickersham]. I’m really excited about what she’s going to bring to this character, and we have big plans.
Glasberg also spoke to TV Line about the two-part premiere, and he offered this tease about a past kiss between Ziva and Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) that got cut:
WAS THERE A SECOND TONY/ZIVA KISS THAT DIDN’T MAKE THE CUT? | In the two-part premiere, no. But in an episode from a previous season, Glasberg shares, “There was a kiss that existed at one point that was a last-minute addition to a sequence that never got used. It was something we had toyed with once before. And if there’s an opportunity at some point to dig it up out of the archives, maybe I will.”
Pauley Perrette (Abby Sciuto) posted this tweet, passing along a message from de Pablo to the fans:
#NCIS PEOPLE! Cote (who is NOT on twitter!) just texted me to tell YOU GUYS: "THANK YOU for 8 wonderful years." 🙂 Love.

Here’s a question and answer from TV Line:
I liked the new IT guy, Murray, who was in the NCIS Season 11 premiere. Will we see him again? –Kathi
“You actually will see Murray again,” Glasberg reports of Will Harris’ character. “He turns out to be a lot of fun. We’ve enjoyed him.”
