teasers about the two parter kensi ep

NCIS: Los Angeles | As we’ve previously teased, the hit CBS drama soon will reveal why Kensi joined NCIS – “and it’s a very surprising reason, and it’s a very dangerous reason,” show boss Shane Brennan tells me. And while the backstory will unspool over back-to-back episodes, “It takes place in a very short space of time, as Kensi is pushed to the limit while Deeks is running behind, trying to stop her from destroying the things that she cares about.” Brennan also notes that the catalyst for this story was embedded within Kensi’s Hawaii Five-0 crossover last fall: “Something happened while she was there. That’s when the fuse was lit.”


Question: Do you have anything more on NCIS: LA and the big Kensi storyline? —Rod
Ausiello: How about this — the two-parter, launching next week, won’t only reveal Kensi’s secrets. “At one point, for a period of time, Granger (played by Miguel Ferrer) and Hetty were partners on a task force together. So there is very much past history between those two,” says showrunner Shane Brennan. And as viewers will see over the next two Tuesdays, “If you think you know why Granger is in Los Angeles, you’re wrong. He’s in town for a very specific reason, and it plays out through sweeps.”


Kensi Blye is about to go on an intense emotional journey that’s so big, NCIS: L.A. needed two episodes to tell it.

The first part of the double ep, airing Feb. 21, finds Kensi suspected of murder when a man who was once on her father’s sniper team turns up dead — with much of the evidence pointing to her. “She’s determined to prove her dad’s death was a murder and not an accident, which you will then see if that’s the case or not,” previews Ruah. “She’s angry. She’s very angry about her father’s death. He was the man in her life and we also have a little surprise with another family member of hers, which I won’t say who it is. But there’s big turmoil in her life, and I think she’s close to getting what she wants and suddenly there’s interference.”

Becoming the center of this investigation leaves Kensi feeling “isolated,” says Ruah, despite her team’s support, and she struggles to keep her head straight. “She’s definitely confused when she’s given certain news in the beginning and she tries to put it together — she’s still an agent no matter what. She wants to crack the case. But at the same time, she’s extremely emotionally attached to this case, which can cloud your judgment sometimes,” she says. “There’s a very fine line between an assassin and someone who kills as an agent. There’s a fine line between revenge and doing something you have to do. She’s definitely put to the test with those two things.”

And in case you needed confirmation (this is, after all, an NCIS: L.A. two-parter), here it is: “Part 1 ends with something shocking,” she teases. And she’s not saying what it is.
