"NCIS: Los Angeles" season 5 continues this week with episode 11, "Iron Curtain Rising," and on Sunday, Dec. 8, CBS released a sneak peek teasing Sam (LL Cool J) and Callen's (Chris O'Donnell) feelings about how Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) is doing now that Kensi (Daniela Ruah) has been reassigned, as well as some classic bantering between the partners.
In this next "NCIS: LA" episode, it's up to the team to find a former Romanian Communist leader and suspected war criminal, who has been living in Los Angeles under a false identity for over 20 years, before he disappears again. Meanwhile, as the "Iron Curtain Rising" promo has revealed, Kensi is overseas hunting down White Ghost, and that means Deeks is without his partner (and just when they were finally discussing their "thing" too).
The "Iron Curtain Rising" sneak peek to the left shows that Sam's getting a bit soft as he expresses some concern for Deeks, and when Callen questions him, Sam points to what he's been through and the fact that he saved his wife. That leads to Sam and Callen arguing over who has saved whom more times, and it goes on a while. It doesn’t seem likely either of them will back down from that disagreement.
"NCIS: Los Angeles" season 5 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on CBS. What do you think of this episode 11 clip from "Iron Curtain Rising"?
