NCIS: Los Angeles - Episode 4.24 - Descent - 3 Sneak Peeks
This season’s NCIS: LAfinale is “without a doubt the darkest season-finale we’ve ever done on the show,” according to executive producer Shane Brennan. And the proof is in the promo.
EW has your exclusive first look at the episode, which finds the team going to new lengths to recover the stolen nuclear weapons they’ve been tracking. The result? An episode that will make for some juicy team drama and could leave at least one life in jeopardy. “It’s big in many, many ways,” Brennan previews.In the video below, we get a taste of exactly what Brennan means.
What is happening to Deeks!? Why does Sam appear to be lifelessly floating in a body of water?
Brennan is coy on specifics, but warns of some scenes: “People will actually squirm. … When I watched the cut, I had to look away.”Meanwhile, if Kensi and Deeks appear to be closer than usual in the promo, hold on to your hats for the actual scene. “There is a massive, massive moment that will shock Kensi and Deeks fans,” Brennan teases.
“When I was watching the cut [of the episode], I had to look away. I won’t tell you what I was looking away from, but it will take you to perhaps, the reality of what can happen to these undercover agents when things don’t go quite the way they were planned.” — Shane Brennan …
TVLINE | And Hetty shuffles partners again?
She does, and anytime you see Deeks and Sam working together, you know there’s going to be friction. Ultimately this episode plays out in a way that puts these two together in a life-threatening situation that tests their trust. And as I’ve said, it leads to this very, very dark — and I mean dark — conclusion, with Deeks and Sam at the center of it. We also see the return of Sam’s wife Michelle and all the issues that taunted Sam regarding her working undercover. The jeopardy that one of the characters is put into springs directly from that.
TVLINE | So, we should watch for potential fatalities?
There are potentially two, and they’re not subsidiary characters. It really is quite a stunning end to a stunning episode that starts from a very powerful place. Things kind of unravel for the team, because the best plaid plans sometimes don’t go so well. And when you’re dealing with this kind of international terrorism, sometimes you end up making unlikely alliances!
