NCIS LA season 13: Kessler return to haunt Kensi 'sealed' – but not how fans think

His presence will once again be felt in the upcoming episode A Land of Wolves which airs on Sunday, January 9, on CBS.

When asked if Kessler was going to be making another appearance in NCIS LA, it was confirmed by TV Line: “No on-camera encore is in the books yet, but Kensi’s elusive adversary will be referenced again in this Sunday’s episode.”

So while Kensi’s enemy won’t be physically on the scene, he remains on all of their minds.

And going by the latest clip to be released from A Land of Wolves, there’s a good reason why.
