Can I get some Kensi and/or Deeks scoopage? Thanks for all the NCIS: LA love, Sandra! — Jadyn
In an upcoming episode, one of these two is going to get help for a very serious problem that’s usually reserved for male celebrities who get caught cheating on their wife: sex addiction. Yup, in an upcoming episode Deeks will find himself in a Malibu rehab center seeking help for this, um, troublesome issue. “The audience will have to wait to see if he’s undercover of if he’s got a serious issue,” jokes executive producer Shane Brennan.

Densi time!

Since the beginning of NCIS: Los Angeles, there’s been an ongoing focus on telling Callen’s story. In the 100th episode, Callen found out more about his father and even got a glimpse of a happier time when they were together.

According to Shane Brennan, the focus will now shift back to developing the story of Kensi and Deeks. In Part 2 of my interview with the show’s creator, Brennan, discusses the relationship between Kensi and Deeks. He also teases some of the the other fun stories that will be explored this season…


The events of “Descent” and “Ascension” were horrific for the team, yet they seem to have come out stronger because of it. Will both positive and negative repercussions from that case continue to be explored this season?

Shane Brennan: Yeah, absolutely. It’s very important when we take a character through a fairly intense emotional situation that you can’t forget that. You can’t ignore that in future episodes. It has to be there. It’s another part of their makeup. It goes into their DNA.

Particularly for Deeks, who went through that traumatic situation, there are consequences to that. And, even prior to that, that spontaneous kiss that he gave Kensi. They never really got to talk about that before he went through that traumatic situation. So there’s a lot yet to be spoken about and through these first 9 or 10 episodes of the season, that’s never far away.

The two of them are circling each other and it becomes a problem. This season while we celebrate the 100th episode and we lift another veil off Callen’s eyes to reveal his past, it really is kind of the Kensi-Deeks season because of what happened with the kiss, what happened with his trauma, how that affects him plays out into their relationship.

By the 9th or 10th episode, it has some fairly dramatic consequences. And, then we put them both in a situation through the next 8 or so episodes. They are struggling with what happened in the 10th episode and then in the 18th episode there’s this pretty powerful and surprising revelation that changes the course of their relationship in a very, very big way. And, it has nothing to do with Dani [Ruah] being pregnant by the way.

We won’t be addressing that. Dani’s pregnant. Kensi’s not. Through the magic of television hopefully no one will notice she’s pregnant. There’s a series of steps throughout this season that crank up the relationship further and further and further. There’s a pretty powerful revelation towards the end of the season that forces them to take stock.

Does that give you the opportunity to show more backstory about how Deeks and Kensi became the people they are today?

There are parts of their backstory that are revealed. More about Kensi than Deeks. I guess of all the — of Callen, Sam, Deeks and Kensi, we know the least about Deeks because he was the LAPD guy who came to them. He was the late starter in their team. We know he was once a lawyer. We know he’s LAPD. We’ve had a little bit of backstory about him. The fact that he shot his father, but there’s much more to reveal about Deeks.

A little of that will be hinted at this season, but that’s for a season to come. You said earlier that we are pretty fearless about how we do this, we purposefully went into this relationship so that — I don’t want the audience to start hating them because nothing ever happens. We are giving the audience a big, fun ride this season with these characters and this relationship.

The kiss was unexpected. The audience wasn’t expecting that. That’s why we did it. What we are revealing this season the audience won’t be expecting it and that’s why we’re gonna do it. We’ll keep doing that because that’s what makes this relationship fresh in a landscape sometimes where you have these unrequited relationships. The audience can get a little annoyed if you don’t move it forward. We’re trying to do that in a way that keeps everyone engaged and interested and wanting to know more. This season the audience will get to know more.

I was against Deeks and Kensi hooking up until the very end of last season and it came across as so authentic which sold it to people who were against it.

Yeah. It is. A lot of it goes to how Dani and Eric [Christian Olsen] played it. And, also in the words that were written, but they totally delivered it in a very authentic way. I’m really glad you cast it in those terms because that’s what it felt. It felt real. And, that’s why we want to keep playing with that relationship.

We can do it in a very authentic way. Life is never as black and white as it can be on television and happy endings are hard to find in relationships and in life. And, I think we can explore their relationship in a very real way. And, certainly that’s what we do in this season. We have arced the story out until episode of 18 already and it’s a lot of fun and it’s very authentic and it feels real.

And, that’s really important to achieve that in a show that is an entertaining procedural is what it is yet we still manage to find these very authentic moments for these characters. It’s great to be able to do that.

I interviewed Eric this summer and he said he thought the contents of the box would be revealed this summer. I know fans are clamoring to know about the box. Can you confirm that the mystery behind the box will be revealed this season?

I can tell you that later in the season, he takes the box down and puts it on his desk and stands over it and he may or may not open it. I can tell you that.

What else would you like to tease about season 5?

We see Nell out in the field again. She gets to fire her gun in anger. We see her out in the field again later in the season as well.

There’s a little more of the budding romance and fun, nerdy romance between Eric and Nell. And, the nerdy jealousies.

There’s some great pairings this season too. We’ll have some very interesting partnerships.

We’ll be seeing more of Granger. You’re gonna see Miguel [Ferrer] in a way that you’ve never seen him before. We are using his formidable acting abilities this season and people are going to be blown away by him. He’s fitted into the show way beyond my hopes and expectations. And, we love writing for Granger and there’s a lot for him to do this season.

The other thing we’re going to do for the fans that just love the Sam and Callen partnership, we’re going to see them go undercover together again. We haven’t done a lot of that lately, but there’s going to be some very memorable episodes this season where we get to see the two of them doing their banter, doing their undercover thing and just having a lot of fun in the way the series began with them undercover.

As the spinoff of a spinoff hits 100 episodes, the mastermind behind the CBS ratings juggernaut tells THR how he keeps the series fresh.

By the show’s 100th episode, season five’s “Reznikov, N.,” the cast has their roles down. But in the beginning, prep work included “meeting with real NCIS agents and going to shooting ranges,” says O’Donnell (fourth from right). Now “we have amazing on-set technical advisers who keep an eye on us.”

Who would have thought a spinoff of a spinoff would reach 100?

NCIS: Los Angeles, the No. 2 drama behind CBS juggernaut NCIS, has managed that feat. In 2009, NCIS: LA debuted as a two-part episode of NCIS (itself a spin­off of the successful 1995-2005 series JAG), introducing the sunny world of the L.A.-based Office of Special Projects, a division of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service that specializes in undercover ops. Big names Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J were immediately attracted.

“I became fully aware of just how tough it is to get a show to ‘work,’ having had a few misfires in previous years,” says O’Donnell, 43, who plays Special Agent G. Callen, likely referring to his failed 2005 Fox comedy Head Cases. “Todd [LL Cool J] was in the same boat, and we looked at each other and said, ‘Let’s do everything we can to make this work. We know it’s a crapshoot, but let’s not have any regrets over preparation or focus.’ ”

The focus paid off. NCIS: LA has averaged more than 18 million viewers in the past three seasons, according to live-plus-7 data. “Fortunately, people responded to the chemistry on the show,” O’Donnell says of the ensemble, which includes Linda Hunt. “As Todd says, ‘Teamwork makes the dream work.’ ”


NCIS: LA focuses on military crimes, which means the writing staff keeps up on current events, both domestic and abroad, for story ideas. Sometimes they’re ahead of the game: Early episodes included a chemical technology that Feds sprayed on suspects to identify them — its real-life counterpart has since become classified — as well as a plot centered on terrorist group Al-Shabaab, which in September claimed responsibility for a deadly Kenyan mall attack.


“Characters have to keep moving,” Brennan says, whether it’s through breakups or big revelations. Eric Christian Olsen, who joined as a recurring guest star in season one as Detective Marty Deeks, made a big impression at the end of his three-episode arc — in his “goodbye” scene to Junior Special Agent Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah), he was insouciantly resting on a car hood: “Fans really liked that and began asking, ‘When is he coming back?’ ”

The mystery of G. Callen’s identity remains a compelling question, which Brennan promises is partially answered in episode 100. “It’s Chris O’Donnell’s best work yet.”


Brennan told location managers at series launch that he wanted to film “at every iconic L.A. location” possible. Since 2009, NCIS: LA has featured Venice Beach, the Walt Disney Concert Hall and the legendary Hollywood Bowl. “People in L.A. can identify when locations are fake,” Brennan says.


Probably “40 percent of TV on broadcast is procedurals,” Brennan says, “so you’re competing with others.” How to stand out? “One of the ways NCIS: LA is different,” says Brennan, “is it’s played out in the high stakes arena of national security.” He also relies on character growth and storylines: “I think we’re the best at doing that.”

Question: Got any scoop on NCIS: LA Deeks/Kensi? —Katie
It’s time for another round of “Is This Just a Coincidence or Am I Onto Something?” Earlier this week, NCIS: LA EP Shane Brennan told Matt Mitovich that “there’s quite a shocking moment in Episode 10 that throws everything awry, and then for the next eight or so episodes Kensi and Deeks’ relationship is in some serious trouble.” Curiously, it’s also around Episode 10 that the show is introducing a new (possibly recurring) ”physically capable” American female agent, and two Middle Eastern male agents. Now, I ask you: Is this just a coincidence or am I onto something? (Mitovich votes for the latter, theorizing that Kensi will take a very dangerous off-grid assignment in the Middle East that sets up Daniela Ruah’s forthcoming maternity leave.)
