‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ season 8 premiere: What should happen

NCISCan you believe that we’re already about to get into the eighth season of “NCIS: Los Angeles“? This really does feel like one of those “time flies when you’re having fun” scenarios, since we really don’t have any clue where much of the time went. It didn’t feel like that long ago we were speculating on whether or not Deeks and Kensi were going to get together, and now there’s engagement talk. This show’s remained remarkably consistent, and the great thing with that is how it’s offered up opportunities to continue to see these characters grow and development. We care about them, and want to see them survive despite the almost-insurmountable stresses of the job.

So where are we going to see the show go now that we’ve made it so far in? That is what we’re hoping to do our best to pinpoint in the latest edition of our What Should Happen article series.

Where we left off – Sam’s son found himself in danger when attack hit his school and threatened the lives of every single person inside. This is where there was a pressing need for someone to step in and led their expertise to disarm the situation … and of course the NCIS team delivered! This was a powerful finale that further cemented the bonds between Sam, Callen, and every other member of the team.

What should happen – We already know that in the premiere, many of these characters are going to be forced to deal with a mole that is running rampant within the unit, and as a result of that, an investigation could be taking place while the team at the same time has to deal with a High Value Target. Sound stressful? Well, it probably is!

The main way in which we want to see the team handle this is by turning the search for the mole into a good old-fashioned whodunnit, but at the same time also deal with the paranoia that comes with having a group of people who may not all be in lockstep with one other. That’s always an extremely dangerous thing to deal with. Also, play up the notion that having someone watching over the team could stress them out, and therefore make it harder for them to do their jobs!

As for Kensi and Deeks, there’s no need to rush the engagement … but given that we do see it happening, hopefully it does within the first few episodes.
