Today’s the day many of us have been waiting for, NCIS: Los Angeles is back! Last season ended with a cliffhanger that left us on the edge of our seats. Kensi and Deeks kissed, Callen has been betrayed, Sam and Deeks are missing, Michelle was left hanging out a window, and who could forget ending the episode with a terrifying scream from Deeks! All summer long fans have been wondering what will happen to their favorite character.
In an interview with TV Guide, creator Shane Brennan says “It’s going to take a little while for Deeks and Kensi to talk this whole thing out. … This season will focus a lot on the Deeks/Kensi relationship..” and I’m excited to see how this goes. I’m happy the writers aren’t going to just throw them together. I want to see how Kensi helps him through all the trauma he endured and possibly even Deeks’ struggle with PTSD. We all know they’re meant to be and the thought of never being able to see each other again will bring out their true feelings. I’m glad we’ll get to see that.
Shane also says in an interview with TVLine that Kensi and Deeks’ relationship “…takes a very, very interesting turn.” And they are taking it “to a new level, to a place that a lot of these shows don’t go…”. Could this have anything to do with Daniela Ruah’s pregnancy? Is that new level parenthood for Kensi and Deeks? I sure hope so! I think the show could use a little ninja assassin.
I think this season will be the best one yet. I’m a major Densi fan and it’s great to see what’s in store for them.
If you’re interested on what else to expect this season read the rest of Shane’s interviews!
