How is "NCIS: Los Angeles" season 5 going to end? Well, it's going to be a cliffhanger, so prepare to spend the summer waiting for the fall for answers. For now, you can get a few laughs in with the two sneak peeks CBS released on Monday, May 12, from the finale, "Deep Trouble."

In the season 5 finale, the NCIS: LA team and the DEA uncover the cartel's plans to slyly transport billions of dollars' worth of cocaine from Colombia to the United States using a submarine. It's up to Callen and Sam to quickly locate the missing vessel. Meanwhile, Hetty is called to Washington in the aftermath of the controversial mission to Afghanistan.

The first "NCIS: Los Angeles" season 5 sneak peek begins with a look at Kensi's reaction to Talia greeting Deeks with "What's shaking, partner?" and a hug. Oh, that's priceless. Then comes time for the introduction, and Talia says, "You actually do exist. I thought you were an imaginary friend." Deeks is quick to correct Talia's "hooked up" with "partnered up" or "teamed up." After that, it's time to talk the case, but Talia is clearly sizing Kensi up, and she explains that she's not what she pictured. "Guess the name threw me," she explains. "When I heard Kensi, guess I just expected Barbie's Malibu cousin. Thought I'd be seeing a blonde California girl." "Not even close," Kensi tells her, and Callen and Sam seem to enjoy leaving Deeks to handle this situation on his own.

In the second "Deep Trouble" clip, Sam and Callen track down James and warn him not to run because that just means they have to chase him, and then they'll catch him and inform Salazar he's their informant. So what does he do? He runs, and while Callen has to chase him down on foot, Sam's taking the car. Callen briefly joins Sam in the car, only to have to get back out when James gets creative. Eventually, James runs right up to the car, and Callen tackles him, "for making [him] run."

"NCIS: Los Angeles" season 5 ends Tuesday at 9 p.m. on CBS. What do you think of these episode 24 "Deep Trouble" sneak peeks?
