Hetty’s still gone and yet, she’s not. Our ongoing case is apparently directly connected to Hetty. Clearly Halloween is approaching because she’s being haunted by (at least) Afghanistan and a threat from over three years ago. That case still clings in my mind since someone abducted my partner right in front of me and held her hostage in a room full of laser-triggered explosives! Who does that?! Yet the thing I remember most was her trust in me in that life-threatening moment (even if it was based in desperation).
Today was brutal on our women of NCIS, which has our male testosterone pumping with protective instincts. Callen was ready to charter a jet to DC over the knowledge of Hetty’s collapse, which is now compounded for her now (almost expected) disappearing act. Then poor Nell had to experience her first kill-shot. She may put on a brave face, but Sam knows and Eric senses how much this has emotionally and physically shaken our mighty mental prodigy. Thankfully I hear Nate’s on his way, but how many of us will he need to meet with?
Of course I’m most concerned about my partner; that DOJ chic really shook her up. I’ve long wondered what would finally make my Wonder Woman crack. No one could go through what she did with the spontaneous TAD and directed assignment, facing Jack, and voluntarily getting captured and then tortured without some notable fallout – and knowing Kensi, there’s probably even more I’m not aware of. That moment in the boat shed, as she let me hold her, transported me back to the near-identical moment we shared upon her rescue in Afghanistan. Will both of us ever be free of our demons at the same time, or perhaps we’re meant to help each other through our shared tragedies? No matter what, I’m here for her.
