‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ season 8, episode 6 review: Kensi Blythe begins recovery; LA Rams tickets cause trouble; team investigates home invasion

NCIS -Fans of “NCIS: Los Angeles” on Sunday night found themselves rooting for Kensi Blythe and the rest of the Los Angeles team as they battled different issues. As difficult as it is to see, Special Agent Kensi Blye is partially paralyzed and lashing out at her partner, LAPD Detective Marty Deeks. Struggling with the reality of her slow recovery, she starts to worry she might never walk again. Looking to ease her pain, Deeks is by her side, even when she pushed him away. As Deeks looks to be by her side, there is still his job to fulfill along with all the emotions associated to keeping her focused on progress.

The team is called for a case after a maintenance man stops a home invasion. While his past life is not what he wants to share with the world (he is in hiding), he saved the life of a lieutenant commander who appeared to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. Slipping away from the LAPD after being questioned, it is the NCIS team who uncovers his dark past and actually finds why he is really hiding in Los Angeles.

Being in Los Angeles for a long time, it appears he is a foreign secret service agent keeping an eye on his estranged family. The lack of communication is because he’s worried for his teenage daughter’s safety. Knowing that people could find his family if he got too close, he pretended to be a maintenance worker.

In the end, the foreign secret agent not only did the right thing to help a neighbor, but also needed a little help himself. After his daughter was kidnapped, it was the NCIS team who located the teen and a happy reunion was the outcome.

As fans watched the case closely, Agent Sam Hanna was showcasing some hometown pride. After getting two tickets to the Los Angeles football game he had to decide which colleague to take to the game. His first invite was to Agent Callen, but Callen kept suggesting they watch the game on the couch and shrugged it off. After the other coworkers seemed to hint they would be best, it turned out that Callen wanted to go all along but had a special gift for Sam that only arrived the day of the game.

We believe the passion of this episode definitely gave fans hope that Kensi would return to work one day, and that the mole at the NCIS team would be located. The intense crime story in Los Angeles made the hour go by fast! Episode Grade: A-.
