Short summary

A video crew, while seeking Bigfoot in a national forest, see Dean, a wanted leftover fugitive terrorist who disappeared in 1973, and who now stumbles in from the brush, collapses onto the ground, and dies of a stab wound; Dean's old organization, the Gun Barrel Party (GBP), has posted a manifesto, in which it declared its intent to "reemerge from the shadows to attack institutions of American injustice"; because the GBP is a matter of national security, Callen and company investigate. G and Sam visit a federal prison while Kensi and Deeks stroll through a woods, find a cabin, and meet a woman; G and Sam visit a professor, Hale, who says that he's writing a book about the GBP; Kensi and Deeks return to school, where Deeks finds a bomb; G and Sam check Hale's house, where they too find a bomb; Nell tells about missing explosives; Eric figures out who Hale is; G and Sam grab Hale and dynamite; Hale fills them in, the team connect the rest of the dots, and the GBP dies.

When Sam & Callen go to visit the Gun Barrel Party member in prison, the name-tag on the employee bringing the prisoner to the room identifies him as "Lackey". Merriam-Webster's online dictionary defines this (as a common noun) as "someone who does menial tasks or runs errands for another". Little doubt this is what the character is, leading one to think the writers simply chose not to undertake the similarly-menial task of giving a proper surname to this character.
