Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) may have a temporary partner in the field in Nell (Renée Felice Smith) in the next new "NCIS: Los Angeles" episode, but Kensi (Daniela Ruah) is back in the field in 521 "Three Hearts," for which CBS released promotional photos on Thursday, April 3.
In this upcoming "NCIS: LA" episode, the team takes an undercover NCIS agent, Paul Angelo (Daniel Henney), suspected of working for the smuggler he should be investigating into custody to figure out his true intentions. Meanwhile, Kensi returns to the field, and she and Deeks discuss their personal relationship.
Before the big reassignment that was the "White Ghost" storyline, something happened between Kensi and Deeks, but they never really got a chance to talk about it before she had to leave and we as viewers can only speculate about what happened between them leaving the restaurant and showing up at work the next morning. It sounds like that's coming up in this episode.
The "Three Hearts" photos in the slideshow offer a look at the L.A. team in the field, including Deeks and Kensi, and a tease of what's coming up case-wise.
"NCIS: Los Angeles" season 5 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on CBS. "Three Hearts" airs April 15. What do you think of these episode 21 photos?
