Sometimes in a show rife with guns and action, there’s nothing better than hot banter and sexual tension between partners. No, we aren’t talking about Sam (LL Cool J) and Callen (Chris O’Donnell), but rather quick-witted and constantly flirty Kensi (Daniela Ruah) and Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen).

Olsen tells us all about the sexy undercover operation that’ll have Kensi and Deeks sharing a roof—and a bed! Plus, get scoop on the “catastrophic” season finale cliffhanger that will bring death to NCIS: Los Angeles.

Playing House: Praise the TV gods, Densi fans (or is it Keeks?)! You are about to get a whole lot of fantasy undercover goodness. “We go undercover a lot for different situations and usually they are just for one or two scenes,” Olsen explains.

“But this opens with us living together in a house. Which is fantastic because that’s where people want this relationship to go, and all of a sudden it starts with us in this world—I wake up and roll over and it’s a pretty fantastic episode.” Yep, fantastic, we think that about sums it up. But wait, there’s more.

Playing an undercover couple might lead to some (fantastically) awkward scenes as well. “Which is kind of why this episode is so fantastic, because Deeks is really good at navigating how much he can get away with based on the circumstances,” Olsen tells us. “And usually he just ends up getting punched. He definitely pushes the boundaries of what he can get away with as far as proximity and affection and loving tenderness.” Yes, he said affection.

Foreshadowing Future: Kensi might be a kickass agent by day, but in tonight’s episode she gets to don an apron and play wife. Is this the hardest role for her to play? Maybe not.

“It comes quite as a surprise to her that she’s attracted to this lifestyle,” Olsen says. Could this be a glimpse into their life six seasons from now? “It throws Deeks off because she sees her as this hard-edged creature that he would never see as a normal wife or a mother. But there is something she finds in [that lifestyle] that Deeks responds to, that’s attractive to him.”

We asked if Kensi and Deeks could ever be together beyond an undercover operation. “That’s one of the things I love the most about our producers and our writers, they paint out these storylines. All you can ask for in a relationship is that you grow and mature together. And that’s what these guys are doing.”

The deeper scenes beyond the sexual chemistry and banter aren’t just for exposition, Olsen says: “Those are kind of monumental episodes as far as milestones in relationships. All those barriers and defenses that both of these characters have start to break down, and it builds a very interesting bond and dynamic between the two of them.”

Catastrophic Chameleon: Are you ready for the two-hour season finale? “It’s crazy,” Olsen dishes. “So much so that when we finished the table read, everybody was freaking out, demanding to know what was happening. [The showrunner] made everybody leave the room and kept the core actors in there and said, “All right, here’s the plan.” Everybody was blown away.

Not only is there a jaw-dropping cliffhanger, Olsen tells us that LA’s big bad, The Chameleon, will be back with a goal. “That character is gunning for Callen and revenge. It’s become like Usual Suspects, it’s a game of cat and mouse, and he’s playing with all sorts of characters. And deaths! People die. There are catastrophic consequences to some of the actions that the characters choose.” Dun. Dun. Dun. Scared yet?

Are you excited to see Kensi and Deeks married? Nervous for the cliffhanger finale? Head to the comments!

I love being your bridge to behind the scenes access, so whenever possible, I like to take a couple of questions and post them to the fine minds behind your favorite shows. So be sure to watch my Twitter closely; you never know when I’ll randomly call for questions! This week, NCIS: LA executive producer Shane Brennan took some of your burning questions! And as a special treat, come back Monday for an exclusive look (and scoop!) on the huge, two-hour season finale!

Anything on Deeks & Kensi’s episode next week? #NCISLA — @texmex327
This is probably the funniest episode we’ve ever made in the 72 made so far — but it needed to be. The finale has its somber moments, so everyone should sit back and have a fun ride with Kensi (Daniela Ruah) and Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen). It came about because of the crossover. We needed to free up Callen (Chris O’Donnell) and Sam (LL Cool J) to go to Hawaii [to film], so we were looking for an episode that would have some Kensi and Deeks, and this fell perfectly into place. There’s the kiss, and there’s more to the kiss — certainly from Eric — than we anticipated. So the audience is going to have a lot of fun with this. There are a lot of funny insights and it’s a really interesting way to peek behind the curtain and see what it’s like if these two people lived together. And, I’ve gotta say, they’re not perfect when they live together…. Oh, romance is a funny thing. Who chooses to sleep on which side of the bed can cause friction.

I want to know how the undercover-marriage job will affect Deeks/Kensi “thing.” Will it change their dynamic? #NCISLA — @MissAlesig
People will have different [opinions]. Personally, I think Deeks is the one who is a little more unsettled by this and carries something into future episodes. We have the kiss, and he seems to be the one who is more affected by it than Kensi. But if you look closely, you’ll see Kensi is also affected by it.

Is Granger gone for good on #NCISLA? Never did trust him & still don’t after the “Blye, K.” episodes. – @zoyaroses
Actually, I can take this one. He’s NOT gone for good. In fact, he pops up in the season finale and shares some pretty great scenes with Callen. And the cliffhanger, teases Brennan, will have an “enormous fall-out” that will particularly affect Callen, Hetty, Granger and Sam.

NCIS: Los Angeles | Speaking of lighter fare, NCIS‘ spin-off this Tuesday will find Deeks and Kensi undercover as a married couple living in the suburbs — a set-up that showrunner Shane Brennan says fuels “probably the funniest episode of the 72 we’ve made.” And the timing couldn’t be better. As Brennan notes, “It needed to be lots of fun – because the finale comes in pretty hot.” So, will “husband” or “wife” come away from this ruse most affected? That’s a very good question…,” Brennan starts, before settling on Deeks. “Other people may say Kensi, but there’s a moment – I’m not going to lie, a kiss – and Deeks is that one that’s like, ‘Whoa, what just happened?!’” Might the partners get too cozy in their covers? Sounds like it. Says Brennan with a chuckle, “Hetty has to give them a little chat.”

The supersized Season 3 finale of CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles will send Hetty to the morgue albeit without a toe tag, but nonetheless for what can be no good reason — and TVLine has a first look at the grave moment.

In this image from Part 2 of the two-hour season-ender, titled “Sans Voir” and airing May 15, Linda Hunt’s ops manager is called to the place no one ever wants to visit, in any capacity. The reason (reasons?) why, though, for now is a mystery.

Also, I spy two bodies above. When I asked NCIS: LA showrunner Shane Brennan about the season finale death that TVLine scooped earlier this year, he countered, “What makes you think that only one person dies?” He went on to say that “for fans of the show, it really is quite a surprise what we do.”

Brennan urges viewers to make a point of checking out the first promo for the finale, which will debut at the close of this Tuesday’s “Neighborhood Watch” episode (in which Deeks and Kensi pose as suburban marrieds) — saying that as revealing as it may seem, “It’s just the tip of an iceberg.”

All told, across the two-hour span, he tallied, “There are… two… three.. four, five different moments that could serve as a season finale.”

NCIS: Los Angeles | In the two-night crossover event kicking off this Monday on Hawaii Five-0 and concluding Tuesday on NCIS: LA, Callen and Sam will collaborate on a case with Five-0 task force members Danny and Chin Ho (played by Scott Caan and Daniel Dae Kim) – but don’t be surprised if Kensi also gets in on the action. And then some. “There’s definitely a lot of banter between everyone, and a little flirtation here and there — maybe even creating a little jealousy on behalf of Deeks,” NCIS: LA‘s Daniela Ruah tells me. Since Chin Ho is newly re-wed, shall we assume that it’s Danny who takes a shine to Ms. Blye’s considerable assets?

On the NCIS: Los Angeles set this March day, there’s even more bull in the bullpen than usual. The number of buff leading men wearing too-tight shirts has suddenly doubled, and so has the quick-fire banter.

Several of the law enforcers on hand need to be inoculated against smallpox, since their mission is to bring down a madman intent on infecting the population with the virus. “I’m not a big fan of needles,” squeaks Eric Christian Olsen, as Deeks. “I’ll buy you ice cream if you don’t cry,” promises Kensi (Daniela Ruah). Linda Hunt, aka Hetty, plays the straight woman, telling Deeks: “You might feel a little prick.” “Probably not his first time,” adds Scott Caan, who plays Det. Danny Williams.

Say aloha to the enchanted land of crossover TV. The two-parter begins on Monday’s Hawaii Five-0 with Callen (Chris O’Donnell) and Sam (LL Cool J) heading to Hawaii to help track down the smallpox terrorist — who just may be someone from Callen’s past. The action continues the following night on NCIS: Los Angeles, when Danny and Chin Ho (Daniel Dae Kim) visit their Navy-investigator comrades on the mainland. “It’s an alliance,” says LL Cool J. “You have these two crack teams that have to stop this guy before he hurts innocent people. Sometimes the job is too big for one crew.”

NCIS: L.A. creator Shane Brennan can relate. “Crossovers are not easy to pull off when you’re working in the same town,” he says, “and when you’ve got the other show being shot a five-hour flight away, it’s particularly challenging.”

To make things more complicated, Part 2 of the crossover — the NCIS: L.A. episode — was not only shot first, but before the actors even had the Hawaii Five-0 script that sets up the story. “It was a little bit backward way of doing things,” says O’Donnell. Adds LL Cool J: “We shoot out of sequence so much anyway that it’s about imagination. That’s just part of what we do as actors. Sometimes we have to play an NBA championship with no basketball.”

The instant camaraderie between the casts helped make filming easier. “Daniel and Scott fit right in here,” says O’Donnell. “It is funny for me seeing unfamiliar faces in this room, because this is the first episode where anyone had special permission to come inside the ops center.” Guest stars haven’t previously been allowed any closer to the series’ super-secret, Spanish-tiled HQ than the boat shed, but then, other guest stars don’t draw 10 million viewers a week, which truly merits a special hall pass. “And for us, it’s strange to go to Hawaii and be playing the same characters, but the crew is completely different,” O’Donnell adds. “It’s kind of bizarro world.”

Caan agrees. “There are parts of doing this [crossover] that are weird,” he says. “There are writers on our show who have written 40-something episodes, so they know my thing or Daniel’s thing. And then we’re gonna tell the NCIS: L.A. writers, ‘Here, you give it a shot’? You can be skeptical about that. But I think it worked out really well. And when you’re working with the same people over and over again, it is fun to work with new people — and having them be LL Cool J and Chris just makes it better.”

One of those guys, in particular, made it better for Caan. “I don’t want to take anything away from Chris, but LL Cool J is definitely somebody I’ve been paying attention to for more than half my life,” says Caan. “I grew up listening to hip-hop music. We had a bunch of long conversations, and he’s a really smart cat. Within two weeks, he changed my mind about a lot of important things, and I’m pretty stubborn.” Caan doesn’t want to get into specifics, but he alludes to LL Cool J’s emphasizing a balance between perfectionism and just getting the job done that struck a chord with his work psyche. Says Caan: “He definitely has a leadership thing down.”

While Brennan admits the idea for the crossover episodes came from CBS brass, this seeming shotgun wedding didn’t actually take place at gunpoint. “There’s no edict from on high,” he says. “They said, ‘What do you think of the idea?’ And [Five-0 executive producer] Peter Lenkov and I said it was a great one.”

“For me as a musician, it’s like two bands going out on tour,” says LL Cool J on why he liked the idea. “You know, no reason not to do it. It’s just a better experience for the people who buy a ticket. And I don’t think it’s going to hurt either show.”
