Although it seems that Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) and Kensi's (Daniela Ruah) engagement is a sure thing, there is still a chance that it will not happen in the upcoming season of "NCIS: Los Angeles."
Olsen and the other cast members of the CBS series attended the recently held MCM London Comic Con. During the panel, the actor spoke freely about his character's inclination to violence and its effect on his relationship with Kensi.
Last installment, the couple's connection improved a lot and rumors have it that Deeks is planning to propose soon. Olsen hinted, however, that Deeks is still a work in progress, emotionally and mentally. His character is said to be still haunted by the possibility that he would turn into a monster who beats women, just like his father.
"This character shot his dad; his dad was wielding a shotgun and was abusive to his mother. This character killed a cop in defense of a girl. ... The way that I play that is that's the moment that he becomes his father – because his father was that abusive to his mother – and he realizes that's who he's become. So it's more about his own fear of becoming the monster that he hates the most," the actor explained.
Will this mean having second thoughts in marrying Kensi? From how it looks like, the pair is good as married. They are both comfortable with their relationship now than ever. They even hung out with their mothers. If Deeks decides he is still not ready for a permanent commitment, it will be a letdown for fans who have been cheering them on.
Meanwhile, executive producer John Peter Kousakis asked the viewers to be patient a little while longer since the series will not be back until October. He promised, though, that they will not be disappointed, as it is going to be another sensational season.
"NCIS: Los Angeles" season 8 will premiere on Sunday, October 2 at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
