The next episode of NCIS: Los Angeles teases some major personal challenges for Marty Deeks, which could be devastating to the show’s core team of agents.
Marty Deeks (played by Eric Christian Olsen), an LAPD liaison officer, finally became a full-fledged NCIS agent in season 12 of the hit spin-off NCIS: Los Angeles. Following the debut of a new cast on CBS this past Sunday, the team’s next mission could be overshadowed by a dramatic decision made by one of their newest members.
Agent Deeks may be considering leaving the team as a new challenge is introduced in the next episode of NCIS: Los Angeles.
In Sunday’s episode, a rear admiral is kidnapped from his home, and the task force is dispatched to investigate.
Meanwhile, Deeks and Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah) are still adjusting to having their adopted teen daughter Rosa (Natalia Del Riego) around the house.
This season also included a touching visit from Deeks’ mother Roberta (Pamela Reed), who was introduced to the new family member.
Surprising developments in the next episode, Survival of the Fittest, may force Deeks to reconsider his senior position at NCIS.
“A Marine falls ill during a training mission due to an att4ck by a genetic weapon,” according to a new synopsis for episode seven.
“When Rosa gets the flu, Deeks struggles to balance work and home life.”
While G Callen (Chris O’Donnell), Sam Hanna (LL Cool J), and the rest of the team are on another dangerous mission, Deeks is responsible for his children.
Rosa’s illness, while hopefully not life-threatening, will undoubtedly present new challenges for Deeks and his wife.
Rosa, despite being a self-sufficient adolescent, will require assistance in adjusting to her new life in the United States.
If Deeks realizes she requires more assistance, he may decide to reduce his hours or leave the team entirely to ensure he spends enough time at home.
This would put his NCIS partner Kensi in jeopardy on the job, but it’s a risk the family may have to take in order to give Rosa the love and attention she requires.
Despite his struggles with work-life balance, Deeks makes time to assist his fellow agents with their next mission.
He’s shown racing into action with Callen, Hanna, and Devin Roundtree in the promo for this week’s episode (Caleb Castille).
Callen and Hanna are seen exiting a car in pursuit of a dangerous suspect who may be about to cause untold harm to the Los Angeles population.
“This guy wants to k1ll a lot more people,” Hanna warns his partner.
Admiral Hollace Kilbride (Gerald McRaney), their superior, then confirms the team is dealing with a genetic weapon unlike anything they’ve ever seen.
The NCIS agents are now racing against the clock to eliminate their latest target before the weapon unleashes a terrifying d3ath toll.
