Just in case you needed further validation that NCIS: Los Angeles season 10 episode 13 could be life-changing for one Kensi Blye, we have evidence of that for you in the promo below!
NCIS: Los Angeles video – Take a look at a recent discussion regarding the CBS series in our video at the bottom of this article! For some more insight, be sure to subscribe to CarterMatt on YouTube — you can also check out our show playlist for more.
Through this promo, we have a good sense of the basic story of “Better Angels” — this is an installment about Kensi doing what she can in order to help a man named David who wants nothing more than to hear his wife’s voice one last time. He is near death following a brutal attack that may have been politically motivated — he had evidence that there were chemical weapons being used on civilians, and it’s therefore easy to guess that whoever attacked him was trying to keep this information from getting out.
Unfortunately, the one thing that is now keeping David alive is a car that has pinned him to a wall. He cannot move from the position or he dies; the only thing that Kensi can really do is try to comfort him while the rest of the team scrambles for justice and works to ensure that he can get some closure. There’s nothing within this promo that signals that David may be able to survive this, so it feels wrong to even offer up something close to hope. Instead, the only thing that we can say with confidence is that this episode will offer Daniela Ruah’s character a new perspective on life, love, and being in the moment. It’s not as though she has lived without questioning her own mortality — she has faced death many a time before — but it is a little different when you see the suffering in this particular circumstance. David is not a man who there seems to be any hope for, but he continues to fight on with a singular, personal motivation in mind.
Get your tissue boxes ready for this one — while there may be some of the same trademark action and drama you’ve come to expect from this series over the years, there is also going to be a chance to see something a little more pointed and personal. This episode is an opportunity to explore a new perspective and also to bring everything down to just a personal, human level.
What are you the most interested in seeing on this NCIS: Los Angeles episode, and do you feel like this could be one of the most-emotional ones we’ve seen on the show? (We’re hoping for a series-best performance from Ruah.) Be sure to share some of your thoughts in the comments. (Photo: CBS.)
