Decidedly Deeks: DeeksMadness Round 1

It’s come to our attention that Detective Marty Deeks has as many aliases as Hetty has scarves. So while the United States colleges are battling for supremacy on the basketball courts during March Madness, we’re pitting Deeks’ undercover identities against each other to find the fan favourite.

For those of you who don’t follow college ball or have friends desperately making last minute changes to their brackets, you may be wondering what we’re talking about. March Madness is the nickname for the NCAA Division I Basketball Championships, or, in plain English, the final tournament of the year for the top US colleges.

Below is a bracket showing the matches. Take a look, pick your favourites, and get ready to vote.

DM 1


Marty Finch vs. Surfer

The ‘fixer’ lawyer in a suave suit against the beach bum who has sand between his toes

We meet Marty Finch during 5×10 ‘The Frozen Lake’ when Deeks tries to extract the Guhrka from the Albanians. It’s an alias from his LAPD days but its life was cut short when the target killed another undercover cop.

Deeks’ hobby meshes with his work in 4×10 ‘Skin Deep’ when he infiltrates a surfing community to find a witness.

Vagrant vs. Sven

 V Sven
The one is fabulous and the other is fabulously scented

Vagrant, bum, hobo, DirtyDeeks, no matter what you call him, he’s a classic. Deeks likes to go method on this one, keeping the clothes in his fridge to keep the smell authentic. This alias is useful in a variety of situations and he pops up often.

Sven was introduced in 5×13 ‘Allegiance’ and he made a splash. As a flamboyant interior designer, Deeks hammed it up complete with an accent. Sam wasn’t as amused, telling him to tone it down, but Sven would not be reined in.

Christopher Stone vs. Custodial Engineer

The head of the company against the cleaning staff

In Episode 3×13 ‘Exit Strategy’ Christopher Stone creates a scene to give Kensi the opportunity to plant a bug. He’s loud, he’s demanding, and he looks damn good in a suit.

Despite Deeks’ protests, another alias that he keeps using is the custodial engineer. Able to infiltrate almost any building with a mop and a bucket, Hetty keeps handing him the coveralls whether he likes it or not.

Fake Robert Turner vs. Matthew Dunkler

Dogs! and trains!

Deeks stepped into the shoes of Sam’s former teammate Robert Turner during 4×05 ‘Out of the Past’. Together with Chaucer at his side they briefly entered the world of show dogs to track down a suspect.

Matthew Dunkler, from 5×07 ‘Livelong Day’, is odd, off-putting, strange, and an alias that Deeks was itching to deploy. This cover excels at convincing people to leave him alone and it is the tidiest we’ve seen Deeks dressed, ever.

Engaged/Married Man vs. Dale John Sully

Married DJS
Kensi’s other half and the dirty lawyer

Deeks and Kensi have shopped for rings, had a honeymoon, and house-sat as a couple while on the job. For better or for worse, when the situation calls for a happy couple, the partners are sent in.

When Deeks’ cover as Dale John Sully, the disgraced lawyer skilled in real estate, was in danger, the team extracted and backed him up during 2×01 ‘Human Traffic’. It was this case that made him a permanent member of the team.
