"NCIS: Los Angeles" season 5 continues this week with episode 17, "Between the Lines," for which CBS released a sneak peek on Friday, March 14, showing Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) in a no-win situation with Sam (LL Cool J) and Callen (Chris O'Donnell).

In this next "NCIS: LA," it's up to the team to locate the mole after an undercover agent is identified and executed by a local gang before other agents' lives are put in danger. Meanwhile, in Afghanistan, Granger (Miguel Ferrer) begins to worry when Kensi (Daniela Ruah) disappears.

The "Between the Lines" sneak peek offers a look at the L.A. team's dynamic, as Deeks apparently misunderstood something Callen said out in the field. When Callen said, "go," he didn’t mean go. He was just trying to get the bad guys to show their hand. "It's what he didn't say," Sam explains. Oh, the problems with communication among these agents. Deeks is no stranger to that.

However, when Callen explains he needs to be able to read their intent, Deeks brings up their "mutant telepathic-like connection," and after that, he can't win. "Did you hear that, Sam?" Callen asks. "Oh, yeah, that was cute," Sam replies. "He misses her." As Sam explains his intent was pretty clear. It's all about what he's not saying.

"NCIS: Los Angeles" season 5 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on CBS. What do you think of the episode 17 "Between the Lines" sneak peek?
