The "NCIS: Los Angeles" season 5 premiere is nearly here, and on Monday, Sept. 23, CBS released a sneak peek from "Ascension" offering a look at how Sam (LL Cool J) and Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) are doing after the torture we saw in the season 4 finale.
In the "NCIS: LA" season 5 premiere, while Sam and Deeks recover from traumatic torture that will have a lasting impact on their personal and professional relationships (we have a feeling Sam will look at Deeks differently after the detective didn't give up his wife), lives are still in danger while the rest of the team searches for those stolen nuclear weapons.
Speaking of those stolen weapons, we have a feeling they're why, in the "Ascension" clip to the left, Kensi (Daniela Ruah) and Owen (Miguel Ferrer) aren't exactly staging a rescue when they find Sam and Deeks—and both are in pretty bad shape. Instead, while Owen takes care of Sam, Kensi delivers the bad news to Deeks: "You have to stay here just a while longer, okay? I'm sorry." Oh, Deeks' expression!
"NCIS: Los Angeles" season 5 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on CBS. What do you think of the episode 1 "Ascension" sneak peek?
