JAG fans have been waiting a long time to see the NCIS: Los Angeles reunion — and a teaser for the show's 11th season is finally here. In a trailer that debuted Thursday, beloved JAG characters Marine Lt. Col. Sarah "Mac" Mackenzie (Catherine Bell) and Navy Capt. Harmon "Harm" Rabb Jr. (David James Elliott) returned.
The season 11 opener, titled "Let Fate Decide," sees Callen (Chris O'Donnell) and Sam (LL Cool J) work with Harm, who is not an XO, to apprehend spies aboard the USS Allegiance, while Hetty (Linda Hunt) partners with Mac to neutralize a missile attack in the Middle East. Meanwhile, Kensi (Daniela Ruah) and Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) are trapped in a mobile CIA unit in Iraq under attack by ISIS.
The 30-second promo is chock-full of explosions, missile attacks and rescue missions one might come to expect from NCIS: LA, but it also sees a few shares moments between Harm and Mac.
"Mac, what's the plan?" Harm asks, before the former colleagues and ex-lovers embrace by a silver SUV.
"We're way past letting fate decide," Mac replies with a smile, which Harm promptly returns.
In the season 10 finale, Mac revealed she hadn't seen Harm in nine years, passing up a position at JAG in London to spend time with Mac in San Diego. But soon after, their relationship dissolved, with Mac taking a job as the Marine liaison in the State Department and Harm serving aboard the USS Allegiance.
In fact, the two had their first conversation in years during a video conference call with the NCIS: LA team. "You look great," he acknowledged, before Mac responded, "You haven't changed. Life at sea suits you."
Viewers certainly are hoping that Season 11 brings even more to Harm and Mac's love story.
Elliott told Entertainment Tonight that reprising his iconic role of Harm in NCIS: LA's penultimate episode of season 10 was "surreal."
"It had been 14 years, but it was like a comfortable old shoe. Within the first scene, I was back, you know?" the 58-year-old said. "It was as though I had never left... It was a little pinch-me moment. It was thrilling."0comments
