Higher Power is the eleventh episode, in the third season of NCIS: Los Angeles, and the fifty-ninth in series as a whole excluding the back door pilot episodes and any crossovers.
The NCIS team must locate a classified device with the power to destroy Los Angeles that was stolen from a college research facility. Meanwhile, Sam tries to track down a highly sought-after Christmas present for his daughter, and Eric meets Nell's parents.
- It's revealed that to maintain the secrecy of OSP, its employees must come up with cover stories.
- Eric mentions that he's a "professional blackjack player" as part of his cover, or "at least until he was banned from Vegas". Since he graduated from MIT, this suggests that he might have been on the MIT blackjack team, which the movie "21" and book "Bringing Down the House" are based upon.
