    Can’t wait, Arkady is a fabulous character on the show, glad that the writers are delving into him with regards to Callen’s past too.

  2. Rhodanos

    He is. But It’s funny to see how now guest or potential guest cast get their named episodes and some of the main cast don’t. And I’m not only talking about Deeks here, although it’s way past high time that the producers and writers give him some attention like they always promise(d) only to do nothing about it.

    That being said, looks like there’ll be some good final episodes ahead of us until the way too long summer break.

    1. Fenix

      Deeks named episode?
      Yeah, with this “speed” maybe at end of S09 in cliffhanger….
      If we be lucky enough. 😀

      Sorry but why are you so persistent about a title of an episode?
      Just check the ones we already had with names in the title: Callen G. 1x / Lange H. 1x / Blye K. 2x. That is it. No Hanna S. nor Beale E…. Pretty unfair considering Hanna and Beale are longer in this show than Deeks is. However we had some Hanna episodes, just the wrong titles.

      It is not about the title of an episode it is what this episode is about. And we had a couple of episodes about Hanna S. and Deeks M.

      I don’t know a Chernoff K. no clue who this is but right now I don’t care as long as this will be a better episode than the last one. And Kolcheck A. should be a good one since the character is great.

      1. Fenix

        Don’t be sorry, it’s ok, I wrote it for fun, not for some flame.
        Why episode with name?
        Why not?
        Everyone from team deserve it.
        When they started it, they (we) need to continue.
        Nothing wrong with that, I hope.

    No one is flaming here. We’re all good. People can get passionate about things like that. Moving on.

    It’s not only about the title of an episode. But ‘name’ episodes usually very closely deal with the character in question. And those episodes were usually heavy on important character background info. Besides, I said I’m not only talking about Deeks. Meaning almost everyone else that didn’t get one yet is included.

    Yes, there were non named episodes that gave a specific character more attention but not like those episodes did. There also have been character focused episodes that heavily dealt with a specific character. Like the Deeks past torture one or after Nells first kill. Those for example didn’t focus on the background but on smth that recently happened to the character in question.

    I’m so insistent on Deeks getting smth soonish because the last real Deeks background reveal episode was Plan B and that was four years ago and they planted the seeds for it in Fighting Shadows and they shouldn’t wait too long with the follow-up. And I like the character and how well he works with Kensi. 🙂 It doesn’t even have to be called Deeks, M. But it would make sense to name that particular Episode that (if they ever decide to do one for him) because it makes sense and that’s a thing they established on the show and they should run with it.

    I already read this at tvline.
    Put it here, because that could happen next in any episode.
    “Question: Will the audience ever find out what is in the box that Deeks opened on NCIS: LA? I’m dying to find out what “everything he ever wanted” actually means. —Leah-Margaret
    Ausiello: I’m going to farm this one out to exec producer Shane Brennan, if that’s cool with you Lea-Margaret. “The mystery of what’s in the box will be revisited next season,” confirms the EP, before cryptically adding, “Will we find out what’s in it? Maybe….”
    I don’t know, what to say about it, but Iam probably don’t care anymore.
    Keep for your self SB.

  5. Deeks Fan

    I am with you regarding the box. Don’t care anymore.

    I am kinda excited ny SB reference to next season…since CBS has not renewed or cancelled our favorite show!

    Back to the box….my guess is they made such a big deal about the box that they have no idea what to put in it……….

  6. Deeks Fan

    I am with you regarding the box. Don’t care anymore.

    I am kinda excited ny SB reference to next season…since CBS has not renewed or cancelled our favorite show!

    Back to the box….my guess is they made such a big deal about the box that they have no idea what to put in the box that could or would satisfy anyone!

    1. Mogorva

      Yes, we do. 🙂

      I thought, that the Deeks backgound episode, what was promised early in this season will deal with that – since that doesn’t seem to be happening anytime soon – I could say we’ve bee lied to throughout the whole season, if they won’t make this episode than don’t talk about in intreviews – that will be a story for another season.

      1. Rhodanos

        I wholeheartedly agree. If you’re not gonna do it anyway just don’t talk about it and don’t make promises. And yes: We have been lied to. Not for the first and probably not for the last time. It’s really exhausting.

        Since you mentioned Deeks background: I vaguely remember one of them saying there won’t be anything Deeks in season 5 but in season 6. But aside from the non background we got in Fighting Shadows there’s been nothing. Sigh…

    2. Fenix

      Diane, how we can forget about box?
      SB mentioned it in every interview in every season.
      He tease us every year!
      SB started it, SB have to finish it.
      And what we got after 2 years …again…?!
      “….my guess is they made such a big deal about the box that they have no idea what to put in the box that could or would satisfy anyone!”
      Looks like it, I am with Deeks Fan in this.
      SB, if you don’t know, what to put inside, don’t mention it, until you find something satisfying.
      Diplomatically speaking, “Don’t p… us, with empty teasing!”
      Be men, and hold your word.

    I think every Densi shipper remembers that damn piece of cardboard. I want to know what’s in that blasted thing but I’m also tired of them unnecassarily drawing that out. It’s only one of the many things one could complain about when it comes to LA’s writing. But I don’t want to go into that again. Also don’t get me started on SB.

    Here’s some early season 6 box teases:

    Just one more thing…

    1. Fenix

      In tv business “Anastasia Kolcheck” can be anything.
      Adoptive Arkady’s daughter, but real Callen sister…. or something else. 😀

  8. I Feel Possessed

    Anastasia Kolchek looks in mid 20s so guess could be Arkady’s daughter. Wonder if she’s Callen’s new love interest? He did ask Arkady who she was at the end of Beacon.
    Maybe baddies have kidnapped her to make Arkady play ball. There was also the comment about family at the end of Beacon, which has been a recurring theme throughout S6.

  9. BW

    I think they(not sure who that is) are blackmailing Arkady. I think the fact the picture said,”A very pretty girl” sounded like a threat. I do wonder who she is to Arkady.

  10. ChrisDaisy

    Could the episode be named after Anastasia Kolcheck instead of Arkady?

    @sindee: Arkady’s wife??? Don’t think so (but then, we’re talking about Arkady 🙂
    I’m thinking daugther, maybe…

    And about her being Callen’s new love interest – possible, but I am not sure if I like that idea…

    1. BW

      Me either. Arkady being related to the love interest is not greatest of idea. Callen & Arkady at Thanksgiving dinner — eventful! 😉

    2. LasiaMsinRed

      Right there with you,girl!
      I don’t like the idea of her being Callen’s new love interest. If she happened to Arkady’s daughter it would be strange. Besides, it would be too easy. They already hinted about her,G admitted that she’s pretty, that’s a very clear path and very ncisla-unlike.
      That being said I do want the character Ana Kolchek to stick around. I think she’ll help us to get more info about Arkady and in reference to him also about Callen.

  11. Crystal

    Ana is on the oil tanker being held against her will, Arkady asks for Callen & Sam’s help to get her back safely. Not sure on her relationship with Arkady but Callen takes a romantic interest in her and she in him after he and Sam get her off the ship. It does say Arkady has a personal interest in the ship, perhaps Ana is that interest. And more personal information about Callen’s relationship with Arkady comes to light. Something happened years ago that has Callen keeping in touch with Arkady even though they are on opposite sides of the law.

  12. Domingo

    Callen and Arkady knew each other from when Callen was working undercover either in Russia or the Baltic States.

    Push Back season one, this is the first time we meet Arkady and realise there is history….
