NCIS: Daniela Ruah from LA sheds gentle on Kensi’s new disaster – and Deeks’ future
The future looks neither bright for Kensi Blye nor for husband Marty Deeks, who emerged from NCIS: Los Angeles’ double headed ball this week.
When asked to elicit information about an escaped con man from David Kessler, a pitiful old enemy, Kensi accidentally played straight into the hands of the savvy murderer. Because, as the team discovered in the last moments of the second hour, Kessler was deliberately caught while escaping from prison to use his information about the other convict in a private phone call with the President of the United States. Through his fellow refugee, who used to snoop around for the CIA, Kessler had compromising information about many DC politicians, which is why he extorted a POTUS order with his VIP phone, which ensured his release.
And mind you, Kessler made his plans for killing Kensi clear … among other things.
This new looming threat of Kessler (played by Frank Military, who wrote the episode) “is going to be a ticking time bomb, which is a great thing about this show,” Daniela Ruah told TVLine. “This seed was planted and will burst in your face when you least expect it.”
But while Kensi fears for her life, “Deeks seems to be much more worried than she is,” says Ruah. “But it is always like that. Look, if my mom went to visit me before all the quarantine stuff, I’d be a lot more worried about her going here than if I was the one going there. When you aren’t and you don’t see with your own eyes, it always feels a lot bigger and worse than it is. “
As if the threat that Kessler would be on the wind and take revenge wasn’t enough, Kensi and her husband also have to put up with the fact that Deeks’ job as a liaison between LAPD and NCIS has been terminated. Permanent. There’s nothing even the mighty Hetty can do to clear this bell, and as Nell made it pretty clear, Deeks is too old to go through FLETC and become a legitimate NCIS agent.
Ruah was wondering what to do next for family planning and homebuyers in light of Deeks’ curtailed career (“I don’t know if I can reveal anything …”), but she was on her way Worry that scene partner Eric Christian Olsen leaves the high-octane process.
“Look, if Eric left the show permanently, we would know by now, and it obviously isn’t,” she said. “So things happen somewhere and somehow that change the course of history.”
