Previously on NCIS Los Angeles…
… Granger finally told Hetty about Kensi …
This week’s episode started with this intense, fast-paced, well-written, well-played scene when Nell briefed our guys…
Yeah, good question !!
“…your most important weapon…” Niiice…
“If you need to separate Mr Deeks from the team do so.“
“I need you to bring her home, Sam.“
IMO it was a good call to emphasize to “single-mindedly remain focused on Agent Blye.”
“What the hell is going on?“
“Welcome to Afghanistan, gentlemen.“
These guys look suspicious even to me.
Phew… it was Granger…
“What does this have to do with Kensi?”
Right. Focus guys !!
“This mission is dark. As in ‘black as night’.“
“We’re on our own out here.“
“That’s a direct order.”
Uh-oh… if looks could kill…
Where did they walk in to ??
“I hate horses.“
Thanks FM for the right amount of humor in this otherwise very intense episode.
“I have someone I care about very much. And I’m here looking for information regarding her.“
Trying to get him to talk. Take One.
“I have morals.“
“Jack and I were friends.“
Really ?? If this was a novel (or fanfic for that matter) I’d call it right away ridiculous that Hetty knows *everyone*.
Please don’t get me wrong. I really LOVE Hetty… it’s just a bit too much lately IMO…
And yeah, a little blame should be allowed here… she sent Kensi to Afghanistan and withheld information… intentions good or bad…
“I’m not buying it.“
“Not buying it? Or you’re not accepting it?“
Wait? How does Granger all of a sudden know about Hetty’s affiliation to Jack?
“We should do a quick search of the area. For bodies.”
Trying to get him to talk. Take Two.
“Send me the photo!”
“If she slows us down. You’re trading her life for Kensi’s.“
“She won’t. End of discussion.“
Trying to get him to talk. Take Three. Morals on hold.
Morals back – right on time. Great writing, awesome acting !!
“But in the end the question of war and torture is not what it does to our enemies but what it does to ourselves.“
“They’ll be coming for us now. But I guess that’s what you wanted.“
Wow, what an intense scene. It really felt like out of a movie. Awesome writing, directing & acting !!
“We run out of ammo – we have two hands, we have knives. We keep fighting.“
“Hell, yeah. Let ’em come.“
“They stopped firing. They stopped shooting.“
OMG, Kens !!
Kudos that she said “No.” when asked if OK !!
“Agent Callen. That was a good mission.“
Wow, did Granger just say that ?? 😉
Oh… not what Deeks wanted to see I guess…
Glad the girl got a new home…
“You would never hug me like that, huh?“
Nice touch of humor again…
“I got you. We’re going home.“
Phew… what an intense episode !! I loved Frank Military’s eps before but this one was… just WOW !!
I’m thinking about starting a petition to include the “Director’s Cut” version (it was mentioned they needed to cut 10 – 15 mins) on the S5 DVDs… who’s in ?? 🙂
As good as it is to know that Kensi is saved and will be back home with the guys soon I wonder how this whole Afghanistan detour will influence her (personally and work-wise) and her relationship with Deeks…
As always I like to hear from you all what you think about this episode. Good and bad !! Everyone’s entitled to an opinion as long as it’s expressed in a reasonable way. Please keep your language clean and respect the opinion of others !! Thanks !!
