After what Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) and Sam (LL Cool J) went through when they were tortured by Sidorov and his men, it was understandable that they would need some time. Sam returned to work first, but Deeks is coming back. However, is he coming back for good? That's exactly what the sneak peek CBS released from "NCIS: Los Angeles" episode 503, "Omni," Monday, Oct. 7, addresses.
In this next "NCIS: LA" season 5 episode, Deeks returns to work, and while the photos released do show him seemingly in a good mood, as you can see in the "Omni" clip to the left, not everything is as it seems. In fact, Deeks may not be back permanently. Is it possible that Kensi (Daniela Ruah) could still get a new partner this season?
Deeks is back in the office, and as you probably expect, Hetty (Linda Hunt) is right there to check to see how he is. But she has a question for him: "Are you here to return to the field or clear out your desk before your colleagues arrive?" He's not sure yet. "I got up, and I drove in, figured I'd know what to do when I got here." And? "Ask me tomorrow." But what's wrapped up with a bow on his desk?
"NCIS: Los Angeles" season 5 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on CBS. What do you think of this episode 3 "Omni" sneak peek?
