Sneak Peek #4
"I’m not leaving until Sam and Callen are recovered."
"Kensi, this is not a matter of discussion. You and Mr. Deeks have been here for thirty-six hours straight. Go home, shower, change, rest. Come back refreshed."
Kensi felt Deeks’s hand on her back, and thinking of Talia and her unwelcome advice from earlier that day, she almost wanted to shrug away from his touch. But the contact was familiar, comforting.
Hetty’s usually fine wrinkles looked deep over the video call, and her eyes seemed impossibly tired. Hetty was gone, Sam and Callen were trapped in a submarine, and there was nothing she could do. She understood, yet she refused to accept her brothers’ death sentence. Not Sam. God, not Callen.
…How hot, or cold, will the “Densi” interaction be this season, now that the Bickersons have finally hooked up? Surprisingly, perhaps, the reset button on that romance hasn’t been hit. […] “It isn’t as black-and-white as people think. […] We don’t want to leave the audience thinking that now we’ve turned it off and we might turn it on again later.” […] Expect downs early on.

They don’t want us thinking they “turned it off”. Then why did he return her knife? Are they still together, and is 3 Farts even more misleading than we originally thought? Or are they just never going to “turn it on again later”? The reset button hasn’t been hit.
But isn’t that what we all want? For them to hit a reset button and forget about raccoons and their two extra hearts and the frozen lake that’s apparently costing Deeks some major shrinkage?
Yes, Shane Brennan, we’re all very aware that it isn’t black-and-white. With all of the metaphors last season, they might as well just set the whole show to a grey scale.
NCIS: LA PROMO
What are you doing to me, Deeks?
Gunfire is the sweetest sound she’s heard in days.
She sees him soon after the bells ring out, briefly. He brushes past her.
Callen’s heat is next to her, and when Sam asks if she’s okay, she surprises herself because Deeks’s name isn’t on her lips. Instead somebody foreign to her cries out, “No.” Callen orders her onto the chopper. He touches her back.
Deeks is talking to Jack, and she reads their lips. Her partner thanks the man that left her forever ago and wishes him well. She wonders, albeit a brief thought, how Jack and Deeks would’ve interacted with each other had the circumstances of their introduction been different.
Deeks: What’s wrong?
Kensi: You know if we do this, this changes everything.
Deeks: So what do you want to do?
Kensi: I don’t want to have to choose.
Deeks: Then don’t, then don’t choose. We don’t choose.
Kensi: No, that’s not how it works. What do you think’s going to happen?
Deeks: I don’t know. I don’t care.
Kensi: What are you doing to me, Deeks?
Deeks: Falling in love with you.
