Drive will always be a special episode for me because sindee and I were there on set the day they were filming in Ops at the beginning of the show. To see all these wonderful actors that I enjoyed so much working only a few feet in front of me was an indescribable moment. ( I’ve written about our special day on the Paramount lot in a two part blog that you can find by going to In the Bullpen with Phillydi.) I was looking forward to finding out more about the story line since at the time we could only get bits and pieces from the scene in Ops.….so to see the final product was very exciting. Joe Sachs penned two of my favorite episodes from last year (Higher Power & The Dragon and the Fairy) and Steven DePaul (The Debt) was a treat to speak during a short break as we watched the filming outside of Ops. In this episode the team is after a terrorist ring involved in international car shipping and Deeks has a contact from his past that is their target. According to NCISLA Connect, this episode was based on a 1997 FBI investigation of stolen SUV’s that were smuggled from LA to Latin America.

[A minivan is running by night in the streets. The driver, a woman, grabs her phone and dials a number. The phone rings in a bedroom – it’s 3.06 am.]

DEEKS: I’m guessing it’s not sobriety.
JENNY: I’m in trouble.
DEEKS: Okay, what’s going on?
JENNY: They’re stealing luxury SUVs, shipping them to Asia. One blew up the police station in Jakarta. There was a kidnapping in Kuala Lumpur, a-a drive-by in Manila. The cars are from the Westside, and then they go to Long Beach, and get put on…Oh, man, is that them?
[A SUV has just appeared at her side- Marty is wide awake, sit on his bed]
JENNY: I thought I lost them.
DEEKS: What do you mean? You lost who?
JENNY: Oh, no. Oh, no, no. They’re trying to kill me. Oh, God, Marty. Oh, God.
DEEKS: Jenny, where are you? Jenny!
JENNY: Oh, my God. Marty!
DEEKS: Jenny, you got to talk to me. Pick up your phone.
JENNY: Marty, no, no!
[She screams: The SUV forces the minivan to crash into a rubble container]

Being the nit-picker that I am I couldn’t help but notice that Marty (born 1/8/79) and Talia (12/21/93) were born only 14 years apart… so in fact when she was “little” (so little she can’t remember him…) would he be only a Teen or in his early Twenties max… isn’t that a bit young for a public defender ??
“My wife and I just got back from a trip to the L.A. area and I used your site to track down NCIS: L.A. filming. I only had my phone camera, so I couldn’t really get any close-ups of the stars. But we did have a funny thing happen to us while we were watching the shoot.”
EDIT: The picture on the bench is from one of the crew members…
It was the opportunity of a lifetime. A chance to fly out to Los Angeles and meet the cast and crew of NCIS Los Angeles! My partner in crime, sindee and I had just launched a new online site which was an off shoot of her very popular NCISLA Fan Blog. With an idea to make the new site look and feel different with original material and information coming out 24/7 we worked long and hard to create what was to become NCISLA Magazine. The new site was unveiled at the beginning of September and we were very proud of the results… but what would the NCISLA team think?
