Predator is the third episode of NCIS: Los Angeles.
A routine Marine Corps training exercise ends in tragedy when an MQ-1 Predator and Hellfire missile are hijacked and stolen, resulting in the death of a Marine. The OSP team are forced to step into the hacker underworld in order to find out answers concerning the circumstances surrounding the Marine's death and also rescue the missiles before they fall into enemy hands, therefore putting the entire country at risk from a rogue missile attack.
- It's revealed that Callen knows Arabic.

This was the third episode of the first season to air. However, this was the fourth episode of the series filmed. The presentation order of the episodes was reordered so that this episode would air before Killshot. The portion of the press release detailing the credits for the episode mistakenly listed the credits for the previous episode.
