NCIS Los Angeles (2012): S03E21 – Touch of Death


The third season of the American television series NCIS: Los Angeles premiered on CBS on 20 September 2011 and concluded on 15 May 2012.


Detectives Danny Williams (Scott Caan) and Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim) of the Hawaii Five-0 in Hawaii arrive in Los Angeles to help Callen, Sam and the Office of Special Projects find and stop Jarrod Prodeman (Rob Benedict), a disgraced doctor carrying several vials of smallpox, capable of wiping out half the world’s population. They eventually find and capture Prodeman, who reveals he has already sold the vials to a Doctor Rachel Holden, who is nowhere to be found. Research soon finds that Holden who believes that the Earth’s population has grown too huge in the last thousand of years is planning on unleashing the smallpox to cut the population in half so that the Earth itself could recover. The team soon find that Holden is at an International Leaders of Tomorrow summit, giving away smallpox-infected t-shirts to teenagers which would in turn cause the smallpox to spread. Despite her efforts, Holden is eventually caught and arrested.

This episode concludes a crossover with Hawaii Five-0 that begins on “Pa Make Loa”.
