Season Finale: NCIS: Los Angeles (TV3, 9.3, 5.1, F)  The third season concludes with the team being drawn into a deadly mind game with a master criminal motivated by revenge that results in a fireball from hell.

And that explosion, that hasn’t been enhanced with any computer graphics at all, and when you see it on the air we have not touched it.” While Sans Voir was not nearly as thrilling as last year’s finale, it will certainly have greater ramifications for the team,” TV Fanatic said. ✮✮✮
