‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ season 6, episode 12 review: Will a deadly virus kill Callen?

CallenNow that Kensi and Deeks have finally made their relationship official on “NCIS: Los Angeles” we think that this is when the real fun is going to come in for these two. Finally the “will they, won’t they” nonsense is over and we can see how these two function in a relationship and how others at the office are going to react to it (it will probably be a surprise to no one, but it will be interesting to see their reactions.)

This week Callen finds himself in a bit of a bad situation while he was doing a routine opt on an arms dealer and then the situation quickly changes when a terrorist group comes in and starts killing hostages until the USA starts releasing the names on their list. When NCIS realizes that the building is set to blow if they don’t do what they say. This is a story we have seen many times on crime shows, but this time we had a bit of a twist, which was that the bad guys really wanted a virus that was being held on another floor in the building.

The Twist that we didn’t see coming was that Callen was going to be infected with the virus and locked himself in a room to stop the virus from spreading to everyone else int he building, but is he going to die? Turns out there’s a cure (of course) and Callen is okay… but is anyone really surprised?

We hoped that now that Kensi and Deeks are in a relationship that we were going to see  a bit of a shift in their interaction with each other, but they are still completely goofy with each other and it seems that not much has changed except that they are committed to each other (and they openly talk about sex now.)

There was no mention of Eric and Nell’s trip back to see her family for the holidays, but we did love Nell making Eric blush by talking about buying expensive panties. These two are so cute. Episode Grade: C+
