The episode begins with three men at a diner, and a fourth one enters. They assume that he is the one who invited them; but it turns out that the new guy was invited as well. He confirms the code “Echo 1” and then takes the seat. The waiter comes to take the order and the new guy orders in Spanish. But the waiter doesn’t follow Spanish and so he translates it into English. One of them clicks a picture of the group and the last guy isn’t too excited about being on a blog or the internet. Just then they notice that there is no one in the diner and seconds later the diner explodes. At the office, Deeks is running late and Kensi tells them that he went to Vegas last night. ..
