[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for NCIS: LA Season 14 Episode 19, “The Reckoning.”]

“Grisha Callen, that is your life.” That’s primarily what Pembrook (Jere Burns) says to Chris O’Donnell’s character on the finish of the final NCIS: Los Angeles episode earlier than the two-part collection finale.

Main as much as that, members of DRONA (now in numerous authorities companies) had been killed by those that had been a part of this system and used (by Pembrook) in black ops. If you happen to ask CIA Rafael Cortes, “Pembrook made monsters, together with Agent Callen.” (Cortes, it should quickly be revealed, can be DRONA.) Pembrook reaches out to Callen, who goes with him however doesn’t wish to hear something he has to say. On the time, Pembrook thought what he was doing to Callen and the others as youngsters had been for the better good, however he knew he was improper.

He reveals that Pembrook additionally is aware of the whole lot about Callen as a result of he’s been watching him for 35 years. He says he tried to assist the youngsters who suffered probably the most. With the psychopathic DRONA members coming after them, in the event that they get out alive, Pembrook guarantees Callen his paper file with the whole lot he’d wish to find out about himself, from his mother’s loss of life to the current day. “It has taken me years to belief any relationship I’ve gone from jobs at DEA, CIA, NCIS, all to distract me from having to face what you probably did. You broke in me probably the most elemental side of being human,” Callen says, refusing to simply accept an apology.

A fast apart: We love how Kilbride (Gerald McRaney) handles Cortes. The CIA officer, pre-DRONA reveal, factors out that honesty isn’t precisely a part of his job. “I’m an aggravated previous son of a bitch who is aware of easy methods to shake the life out of a tree till it drops its fruit,” Kilbride tells him. Cortes wonders if the admiral will cease him with power when he tries to depart. Kilbride’s response: “Don’t tease me.” Don’t get us began on him telling Cortes he’s doing math, particularly geometric proofs, as soon as he and Fatima (Medalion Rahimi) understand the CIA officer is DRONA. These two additionally group as much as take out Cortes ultimately.

Callen and Pembrook (with a gunshot wound) cover out in a server room after the DRONA members discover them. In there, Pembrook tells the NCIS agent that when Hetty (Linda Hunt) discovered what he was doing, she instantly pulled him from this system. “Blame me for the whole lot, not Hetty,” he says. Staying alive places a pin in that dialog — in the interim.

It’s later after the DRONA operatives have been taken care of and others (these in authorities companies) have whisked away Pembrook, that Callen will get that file. The 2 males do meet, and whereas the solutions Callen has needed might not come from Hetty, he does get them. Why didn’t she inform him she pulled him out of this system? “It’s not one thing you’d ever seen in her, however Hetty was consumed with guilt for placing you in this system within the first place,” Pembrook explains.

That’s not adequate. “Her guilt doesn’t make up for it. I used to be used. She was making an attempt to show youngsters into tremendous brokers,” Callen says. However Hetty put him in DRONA as a result of he was sensible, and she or he needed him to meet his potential, Pembrook shares. “Her model of my potential,” Callen argues. “She couldn’t educate you the violin. That world was all she knew. It’s all she needed to give you. It’s a mistake dad and mom usually make,” Pembrook provides.

Callen protests that Hetty’s not his mum or dad, however as Pembrook sees it, “You’re lacking an important half: Name her what you’ll; you imply the whole lot to her. And also you all the time have. …You’re as near a son as she’s ever had.” It seems Hetty and Pembrook have talked from time to time. “I do know you suppose you’ve got been alone on this world all this time, however you’ve got been removed from an orphan. You’ve been beloved deeply,” Pembrook tells Callen earlier than giving him the file on his life.

He additionally has one final piece of recommendation for the agent: “Don’t make your life be simply concerning the previous. Let or not it’s concerning the current and now the longer term.” To that finish, he congratulates him on his engagement and desires him all of the happiness on the planet.

Callen’s emotional as Pembrook’s leaving, however the different man has one final shock for him: That file will reveal that Pembrook was the one to provide Hetty the file on Sam (LL Cool J). He thought he’d make an important accomplice — no, buddy, for Callen. “Regardless of the whole lot, I attempted to look out for you. I attempted to make up for all of it,” he says earlier than strolling away.

Can Callen be blissful now? We’re optimistic.
