Deeks’ Surf Log – 02/09/15

February 9, 2015

Well, it looks like we can actually successfully function without Callen and Sam, but why does it always have to be because they’re in a jam? My partner and I found key clues in the wilderness, took down a squirrely suspect (more on that later), and actually had Granger admitting that he needed us! (Wonder what it took for him to spit those words out? Maybe the wondrous powers of the infamous Deeks’ “bear hug” last week softened up Assistant Director Grumpy Pants!)

Still, we yet again had to put the mission before our teammates. I know it’s our job and we’ve had to do it countless times in the past, but that repetition isn’t making the choice easier. No, in fact with the shift in more personal matters, taking that direction is only becoming increasingly more challenging. It was so different when I worked alone. Then I came into this team and could rely on their highly-trained trade-craft, but now it’s so much more than that. This is my family. How do you set that aside to put all your effort in taking down some low-level scum? Oh, yeh those little details of national security and “the greater good”. Some days the thought of leaving all that behind to live out life in a shack by the sea seems pretty appealing. All I need is my board, Monty, and my girl (not in that order, of course). But no, for some reason I’m compelled to make a difference and help humanity. Sigh.

On the topic of humanity, for the second op in a row I selflessly sacrificed myself for my partner. (That’s what partners do, right?) Last week was gunfire; today was far worse in taking a flying leap in a murky swamp! Gross. I don’t even like camping! Remember, I’m the “city mouse” who needs a chlorinated poolside cabana! Maybe it was some pond-infested bacteria that attacked my brain, but Kensi didn’t even balk at me climbing into the SRX in that state. She even offered me one of her gym towels (that remarkably still smelled like sunshine). Most telling? The expected “soggy mop” reference was replaced by a shy, sympathetic grin. Wow.

It’s ok that everyone was mocking my cooking skills. What they don’t know is it’s all part of my master plan! I was messing with the team so I don’t get asked to contribute to future “pitch-ins”! As for the lovely Kensalina, yeah the takeout was a cop-out. (See what I did there? LOL!) It had been a long and tough day and I was exhausted, but I didn’t want to disappoint my beautiful (and always ravenous) Blye. Just wait until she discovers my true culinary talents this weekend. It will finally be the magical Valentine’s Day I’ve been dreaming about for years!

  1. “It will finally be the magical Valentine’s Day I’ve been dreaming about for years!”. Best. Sentence. Ever.
    How cute of Deeks to look forward to his Valentine’s Day with Kensi…


    • Loved that sentence too!
      I love the log/journal entries like this that insert events that we never saw – like what we can pretend happened in the car after Deeks jumped in the water.
      Oooh wikideeks writers, I sense another epic fic for Valentine’s Day 😉


    • Best sentence ever? What an incredible response! I think we can all picture an excited-as-a-kid-going-to-Disney World Deeks in this romantic holiday. The question really is which and how many sugary treats does he compile to overwhelm Kensi’s sweet tooth?! Just wait until their ship matures to the point we actually get to see such things!

    Hahah, love this. It’s funny and interesting. And I think that Deeks knows how to cook, but he is a little bit of a guy that doesn’t want to share his skills with anyone, but Kensi. And I wonder, does ECO knows how to cook in real life? That would be a real kicker in the head if he gave us a hint in some of his future interview.


    • Natalie, actually he has. He’s shared that he did a few weeks at Le Cordon Bleu just prior to starting NCISLA. Almost unbelievable, right? Back to Deeks, would you want Kensi to know you could cook? He’d suddenly become her slave. Not that either of them would mind. Wow, he should have used that trick long ago!

        Oh, I didn’t know that. Glad he knows how to cook. And it would be interesting if he shows Kensi his cooking skills. But, if the writers don’t do that in future episodes, someone could do that in fan fic stories. He should make her a dinner for Valentine’s Day 🙂


  3. Im so glad both of them are going to have a great Valentine’s Day together!


  4. OMG! I totally agree!! Yes, Deeks can cook! And VDay would be the perfect day to surprise Kensi!
    I agree that Cladani.. It will finally be the MAGICAL…awesome lines 😊
    I love that this journal ties together all the loose ends and crystallizes the thoughts we have while watching. And always great to see the word “squirrelly” used😄. That word always makes me chuckle out loud. Happy Valentine’s Day, Densi!


    • Glad you enjoyed. The Log (& Journal) are a bit risky in “putting words in the characters’ mouths” or filling in gaps that the show might not ever consider or even disagree with. I always wonder what others think happened – thus the world of fan fic! Squirrely, good; raccoons maybe not so much? 🙂
