Exit Strategy is the thirteenth episode, in the third season of NCIS: Los Angeles, and the sixty-first in the series as a whole excluding the back door pilot episodes and any crossovers.
An assassination attempt is made on the life of Jada Khaled during a trip to the Federal Building, prompting NCIS to assign the investigation and protection detail to Callen and his team while Sam struggles to come to terms with Jada for the first time since he informed her of his true identity.
- This is also the episode of the entire NCIS: Los Angeles not to have the usual introduction. Instead, it features a superimposed title.
