NCIS: Los Angeles fans were ecstatic to learn that the hit NCIS spin-off procedural series will return for a 14th season in the fall. Especially while they await information on some key NCIS: Los Angeles characters, particularly Linda Hunt’s Hetty.
During an interview with TVInsider, R. Scott Gemmill, showrunner and Executive Producer of NCIS: Los Angeles, discusses Hetty’s current mission to Syria. Gemmill also discusses Hunt’s Los Angeles character, hinting at what fans of the show can expect between Hetty and Chris O’Donnell’s G. Callen.
“We started to see the beginning of the friction between the two of them,” R. Scott Gemmill says of Hetty and Callen’s conflict. Fans can expect a confrontation as O’Donnell’s G. Callen learns more about his mysterious past, according to Gemmill.
“In the burn room, he does start to have a bit of a confrontation with her,” Gemmill explains.
“Where she finally admits that he was in this program that he didn’t really know anything about,” the NCIS: Los Angeles showrunner continues. “Not one of us did.”
NCIS fans will recall that this is where the two left it before Linda Hunt’s Hetty returns to Syria.

During his discussion of the ongoing storyline involving Hetty and Callen, the NCIS: Los Angeles Executive Producer mentions that fans will soon learn why Hetty did what she did. However, he warns that it will not be an easy conversation.
“She had her own sort of operation going on,” Gemmill says of Hetty’s departure from Syria.
“But I think she also went back early so she didn’t have to deal with Callen because it’s not going to be a pretty conversation,” the Executive Producer continues, noting that Hetty will not be a “bad guy” in the overall storyline.
“In the end,” Gemmill says, “we’ll understand why she did it.”
“And that there were some other circumstances that saved Hetty from being a bad guy,” the showrunner adds. “But it’s still a touchy subject for Callen, and it’s something he’ll have to learn to live with.”
