The NCIS: Los Angeles season premiere (September 25 on CBS) finds Hetty (Linda Hunt) retired and getting ready to enjoy a much-deserved break on the high seas — but it's not easy keeping a woman like her quiet. Episode 4 will introduce a female congressional candidate who's considered a voice of the people.

"We'll get to see what Henrietta thinks of politicians, and it's not nice," says exec producer Shane Brennan. Personal stories are also planned for agents Sam Hanna and G. Callen. "We will be casting someone who will get us closer to Callen finding out what the 'G' stands for," adds Brennan.
