Very big things are ahead for Deeks and Kensi this season on CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles — but does that include the starting of a family?
In the wake of Deeks’ torture at the hands of Sidorov (which came on the heels of his and Kensi’s first real kiss), the NCIS partners have grown closer and closer. As such, show boss Shane Brennan tells TVLine, “Their relationship can’t go back to normal, because things have changed.
“We play that out through the first 10 episodes of the season,” he continues, “and then there’s a quite shocking moment in Episode 10 that throws everything awry. And then there’s very much a big, big shock around Episode 18, for both of them, that affects their relationship again.”
Could either of those eventual twists incorporate the real-life pregnancy of cast member Daniela Ruah, who is expecting a child with fiancé David Olsen aka costar Eric Christian Olsen‘s brother/stunt double?
Says Brennan, “I will definitely and utterly and totally rule that out. The pregnancy does not play into their storyline at all. Let’s put that thought/rumor/suggestion to rest.”
Speaking of (clunky segue alert!) “paternity” issues, Brennan also told us that Boy Meets World patriarch William Russ will guest-star in a November sweeps episode as a reformed addict who now runs a resort-like rehab center for the rich and famous. When one of his patients is found dead, Kensi and Deeks go undercover at the facility.
NCIS: Los Angeles airs its 100th episode this coming Tuesday at 9/8c.
