Barrett Foa and Renee Felice Smith have already teased that their characters Eric and Nell will be getting more into the action in “NCIS: LA” Season 7 — but they’d like to do it a lot more if they had their way.
Foa’s and Smith’s dream Eric-and-Nell-centric episode would see the two tech geniuses showing off all their lifesaving skills with a death-defying hour that has them saving the rest of their more field-oriented teammates.
“Everyone else is in a jail so we have to save all of them,” Foa pitches to Zap2it at fall Paley Fest.
“We have to do the inside, the computer work, the intelligence work. We have to find out where they are,” Smith continues.
Naturally, if these two are going to be saving the day then there need to be some high stakes stunts involved as well.
“We have to shoot the bad guys and diffuse the bomb. There’s sexual banter between us,” Foa adds.
To make it a perfect hour there needs to be a perfect ending though.
“We have to scale a mountain and swim down a river and kayak into the sunset,” Smith concludes.
“NCIS: LA” Season 7 premieres Monday, Sept. 21 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS
