Densi fans take heart. Eric Christian Olsen, who plays LAPD Detective Marty Deeks on “NCIS: Los Angeles” is here to say that this week’s episode, “Inelegant Heart,” has one of his favorite-ever Densi moments. It all begins when Hetty Lange (Linda Hunt) is under investigation in Washington, D.C. in the White Ghost OP, while back in Los Angeles, Kensi (Daniela Ruah) is being interviewed by Chief Investigator Ava Wallace (Aisha Hinds) as to what she knows.

“It leads us to one of my favorite Densi scenes ever,” Olsen told Examiner.com. “It’s very revealing about their relationship and their feelings toward each other, and what kind of roles that they play in each other’s lives.”

During the phone interview with Olsen, he also talked about the “NCIS: Los Angeles” partners trying to put the pieces of their lives back together after each was tortured, what role DEA Agent Talia Del Campo (Mercedes Masohn) will play, how the dynamic of the Sam (LL Cool J)-Deeks relationship has changed, the move to Monday nights and more.

For Kensi and Deeks, there was the kiss — maybe more happened was implied — and then a lot of sexual tension, and Kensi was sent to Afghanistan. Is their relationship still affected by what happened to her there?

I think that part of it was — which is so great about the show — and the reason, I think, this relationship has found so much traction with the viewers is, it is honest. These things happen in life. One of the complications of a relationship when people are working together is navigating the circumstances of what happens professionally. When you add what it is that these guys do for a living, she was sent to Afghanistan to chase the White Ghost, who may or may not have been her ex-fiancé who left her at the altar. She already has abandonment issues, she has issues with her father, all of that stuff comes to a culmination in Afghanistan, and then she has to deal with the emotional fallout of what happened. The torture she went through, and Deeks, of course, went through a version of that himself. This is a really exciting year for Kensi and Deeks.

Also, what is so great about this season is we have a really great history for these characters to pull from, and we get to explore all that stuff. There is talk of Ray (Channon Roe )coming back from Deek’s past, which I think is really interesting because I think he represents a part of Deeks’ life that he tries to shy away from — a part of him that taps a little too much into his own father. They had this dysfunctional relationship and maybe the abuse– verbal or emotional — that he got from them.

Is Deeks henpecked?

I think he kind of enjoys it. I don’t think he really falls for Talia, but I think he likes the idea that Kensi is acting like an 8-year-old child and becomes possessive. Whether or not they’re together, he is certainly not available for Talia. I think he finds great joy in the fact that it is so revealing about Kensi’s feelings toward him.

Then, when the two women become buddies and they are talking about him and whispering, I think the tables turn. He’s, “Wait a minute. This is not part of the plan for you guys to become friends. It was more fun when you hated each other.”

But he must be very confident in his masculinity to deal with it, don’t you think?

I think he is very confident in his masculinity. I think a lot of the things he does are just tools that he learned along the way.

What are you allowed to tease about Monday night’s episode in which one of the team has been compromised?

Hetty has been brought to Washington, D.C. for a hearing by the Department of Justice about what her role was in the undercover OP in Afghanistan. In the midst of that, somebody is selling information that may or may not be her own personal information about her whereabouts, because somebody is hunting her down at the same time.

For that, they sent in a great guest star, Aisha Hinds, and she is sent to interview everyone who is involved to find out who is buying this private information of Hetty’s, what they’re planning on doing with it, what is the purpose of finding out where she lives, and what they want of her. So she is interviewing Sam Hanna, which is actually one of my favorite scenes in the episode, where they are driving through the streets of Los Angeles in a shootout while she is interviewing him.

Usually a TV episode has an A storyline and a B storyline. This has four. So it is a lot of high-octane, action sequences with the investigations of Hetty at the Department of Justice. There is a lot going on.

Deeks didn’t reveal anything about Sam’s wife when he was being tortured. Has that changed their relationship? Does Sam have more respect for him?

That is one of my favorite kind of relationships on the show, too, because that is one of the relationships that Deeks really had to work to earn. Sam’s background was as an operator in Special Forces and that is all he knows. I think his definition of value comes from that. Deeks, obviously, has a very different path. He went and got a law degree. He went to LAPD. He was undercover. I think that the question was: When the world falls apart, are you strong enough to hold it back together? I think that moment, obviously, proved that Deeks was capable of it and he earned Sam’s respect. Forever that relationship will be different because of it. As much as they jest, and verbally joust with each other, I think now there is an underlying respect that wasn’t there before.

Why do you think Deeks stays a member of the LAPD instead of becoming an NCIS agent?

That is a question for [executive producer] Shane Brennan, but I have my ideas about it. Deeks goes back to the LAPD this year. I think any time a character puts himself out on a limb and takes himself out of his comfort zone, whether that be from a professional standpoint, an emotional standpoint, or a relationship standpoint, we either have great success or great failure. The catalyst for Deeks leaving to go to LAPD, and if he does end up becoming an NCIS agent, I think that would be the same catalyst for making that move, too. Whatever those reasons are, they are going to be big.

How do you feel about the move to Monday night at 10 p.m.?

We have just stepped into the most competitive hour of scripted drama on television opposite “The Black List” and “Castle.” I am excited to be a part of that. I think it just steps up the pressure on us. “The Black List” is one of those shows that has a lot of action sequences, and James Spader is amazing. But there isn’t a love story. I think “Castle” has done a really good job of building a love story between its two lead characters. We are a combination of those two things, so I think it is going to be really interesting as viewers sort themselves out with DVRs and live viewing as to what they are going to tune into. I think it’s great. We are in the big leagues. Everybody understands what is at stake and we are gunning for it.

Season six of “NCIS: Los Angeles” airs in its new timeslot Monday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
