NCIS: Los Angeles “Blye, K.” Review

NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS) BLYE, K.

In this episode of NCIS: Los Angeles, called “Blye, K.” we finally find out exactly why Kensi went to Hawaii. We knew it had something to do with her father and in this one we learn quite a bit about him. Turns out she thought he was a former sniper killed in a very suspicious car accident, but really he was government sanctioned assassin killed in a very suspicious car accident.

When all the men who were also in Kensi’s dad’s unit start showing up dead in their own suspicious accidents, the evidence seems to point straight to Kensi. The team is stuck between a rock and a hard place, trying to investigate the latest murder but not wanting to find evidence that will put their partner away. Granger tells the team that he believes Kensi only joined NCIS to get to the truth about her father’s death and then kill those she felt were responsible. I admire Kensi’s spirit and I know she never backs down from a fight, but there’s no way I would ever believe she would go out on a killing spree like that.

This one wasn’t even a sneaky two-parter, but a full on one, ending in those three evil words that always make me scream out loud: “To be continued..”

And this time, I was screaming even louder because we were left with Kensi shot and the man who could tell her who killed her father likely dead.

But even with that frustration, I really, really enjoyed this episode. In addition to getting more info on Kensi, I liked what this whole situation did for the team dynamic. Deeks has a rough time with Kensi being in this much trouble, and I thought it was great how everyone also made sure to keep an eye on him, while also looking out for her as well.

I’m actually sorry now that my vacation starts next week and I won’t be able to review the second part of this one. I can’t wait to see what happens though.

My favorite bits..

“You do know it’s not your birthday right?”
“Which is why it would be so surprising.”

Kensi comes from a long line of snipers? You know, that explains a lot.

Hetty telling Granger that she wouldn’t forget him throwing her elite team into chaos.

“My dad was an honorable man, and the last thing I would is dishonor his memory by becoming a killer.”

Hetty telling Deeks to go out onto the streets to do what he does best, and reassuring him that she would take care of Kensi. Aw.

“Focus Beale, you got this.” – I love that Nell didn’t even turn around when she said that.

Deeks bitching and moaning as he crawled out of the backseat of Sam’s car.

“MRE’s.”
“More like MREewwws”

Sam and Callen may have made fun of his Hardy Boys methods, but Deeks did get a new piece of intel doing it.

Deeks pulling out his very, um, profound note for Kensi.

Deeks realizing that he was going to have to bring Kensi in.

Gasping out loud and jumping off my couch when Fisher came out and jumped Callen.

Jumping again when Fisher’s bike blew up.

Sam reassuring Deeks that they were going to get Kensi out of her dilemma.

Knowing that Deeks could call shotgun till he was blue in the face but there was no way that Callen was going to sit in the backseat.

“What? I’m a detective. I detect.”
“Yeah? You’ll detect a black eye if you’ve been on my computer.”

Finding out that Sam has a bomb shelter, and that Callen has crashed there.

Deeks asking Sam and Callen not yell to out “Federal agents!” as that was when people usually started shooting. You know, he has a very valid point.

Kensi single-handedly taking out two agents. That’s my girl.

“You’re not who your past says you are. You’re who you choose to be.”

“Just to clarify, if anything happens to Kensi you’re going to be dealing with me for the rest of your soon to be very short life.” – Yeah! Tell him Deeks.

Harris telling Deeks that he was either lying to himself of hiding from his feelings for Kensi. Whoa.

Sam asking Callen if his remark about it being worse not to know was about him or Kensi.

Noooo! WHAT????? They end it there????

  • I love the bit of “MRE” stuff having been given some by a service Chaplain when I was younger. There are few Deeks lines that don’t have me on the floor laughing (outside of the serious stuff, of course). I have to say, though, what I perhaps enjoyed most was I followed everything despite never seeing her episode of “Five-O”.

      She was in H5O for a couple of minutes and this storyline was never mentioned. You didn’t miss a thing 🙂

    Awesome episode! And yes I hate those ‘to be continued’ tag lines, especially when something bad happens to a character. Despite the fact that it wasn’t much of surprise to see Kensi get shot, considering that she was out in the open, I still gasped and groaned when the ‘to be continued’ popped up. 
    I loved how the team banded together to clear Kensi’s name. The scene between Kensi and Deeks in her apartment was touching and a nice moment between the partners. Daniela and Eric totally rocked that scene. Daniela totally rocked the scene in the interrogation room when she was reading the file and learned what her father really did during his time in the marines. I found myself getting choked up.
    And as for the moment when Callen opened the trash can to find the MRE’s and Deeks called them MReww’s, I laughed so hard because my dad was in the army for many years when I was a kid and he would sometimes open one up and eat it which I always found disgusting.
    Can’t wait for part 2 of ‘Blye,K’!!!!!

    Drives me nuts when everyone involved KNOWS somebody is picking people off and they are meeting in the wide open spaces and nobody is wearing a bulletproof vest?? I am assuming Kensi is, since she’s still in part 2, but really – they’re all law enforcement so why not the basic precaution? Sigh.

       That Harris guy choose the spot. He said and quote “I’ll tell you everything I know. But.only to Blye’s daughter and in a location of my choice”. 

      She was probably using a vest tho. But again she may have been shot in another place, since the guy or girl is probably a professional I don’t think he/she ‘d aim to her torso.
