NCIS: Los Angeles Recap: Who Was the Recipient of a Christmas Miracle?
This Sunday on NCIS: Los Angeles, Kensi and Deeks tried to be in the vacation spirit – even though one of them has a murderous sociopath who takes revenge and swearsand the other is unemployed.
Kensi actually kept the Kessler threat in view while Deeks worried enough for both of them. And that adds to his concerns about their financial position after the LAPD finally ended his NCIS liaison position. In fact, Deeks is so dejected that, despite Kensi’s best arguments to the contrary, he is convinced that they cannot afford their dream home.
Or will the would-be homeowners be saved by the Beale? Because Eric has returned from his days as a tech company founder with a new mindset (and new facial hair) and has just closed a billion dollar (with a B!) Dollar deal with the DoD. Surely he can part with some bills to help “Densi”, right?
But before Deeks can even appeal, Eric reveals that he actually has no use for his fortune … so he builds a foundation to end homelessness across LA. Just quit it. By buying hotels and the like. Crazy, yeah, but … Deeks can’t argue with this. And so he keeps his own housing company to himself.
At the end of the episode, Kensi finds Deeks at the headquarters and he has decided to sell the bar to strengthen her bank account. He says it’s time for him to take the heart and soul he pours into the octopus and dagger and put it into his new home and family instead. But just as the married couple agree to this drastic decision, Hetty suddenly comes from who knows where to congratulate her – not to the house, but to Deek’s admission to FLETC to become a real NCIS agent. But isn’t he too old? As Hetty herself proves, she says that age is just a number.
Elsewhere this week, Hetty hired Callen to handle a drug smuggling operation in which his former foster brother Ray (Demetrius Grosse of The Brave) was involved. That led to the discovery of drug smuggling between clinics in LA and Mexico, and Ray helped G catch the bad guys. After this adventure, Callen offered to give Ray the money he needed to operate on his sick wife – as a form of repayment, explains Callen of how Ray had beaten Callen’s bullying at the time, even though it meant fleeing her nursing home.
Sam’s daughter Kamran (now played by All American’s Kayla Smith) also reappeared, although she waived an initial invitation to meet Catherine.
