5 Comments on Deeks’ Surf Log – 12/07/15

  1. Thanks for this entry, which, I think, has not been easy to write…

    I think the more Deeks will wait to tell Kensi, the more difficult it will be for her to understand and forgive him.
    It’s not up to her to forgive him for having killed a man so many years before, but she should be let free to decide if she can forgive him for deliberately omitting this important truth of his past for so long especially after they have started a committed relationship.

    I think Kensi hid and is hiding many things from her past to him too (“I want you to see the best part of me”) but probably not as hard to swallow as this.
    If the authors want to follow this path with Deeks, I see dark clouds on the horizon for Densi.

    To be honest, I’d rather have them fix this situation better sooner than later because I’m afraid I won’t be able to look at Deeks with the same eyes again, even when he flirts, even when he’s funny, even when he jokes. And this is not for having killed a man but for not opening up with Kensi who has proved to be madly and blindly in love with him, so much that she never questioned his innocence. Did we need more evidence that she’s “all in”?

    • Not easy to write! Actually, trying to control the length was the challenge. So much wonderful Deeks with a complex, multifaceted story-line in just one episode was a great “problem” to face- LOL! You make excellent point in pulling back the layers on these issues and characters. Personally, I fear all these “dark acts” will come back to haunt him at the same time, which may break us all. Deeks finally won Kensi, so we can expect his fear over losing her to override thoughtful rationale. Don’t we all want others to only see the best parts of ourselves?

    • As a writer myself, what happened in Internal Affairs can be considered a buildup to the “black moment” for Kensi and Deeks. In fiction, that is the apparently insurmountable incident that keeps the romantic leads apart and makes the reader (and the two characters) think that it’s over. Of course, at least in romantic fiction, it becomes a stumbling block but not one that can’t be conquered. I think this is genius on the part of the writers to maintain some sort of conflict between the two until the inevitable ending of the series at which time the two can make it past this and wind up with a “happily ever after.” I truly hope that’s what the writers intend, and also wistfully and wishfully pray that we have another few years for this to play out. Meanwhile, carry on. I think we know from Deeks’ inner conflict regarding battered women, that he killed the jerk in defense of Tiffany. Deeks is not now, nor ever has been, a cold-blooded murderer–not even in Max Gentry mode. Hetty must have known this to step into Deeks’ life. Anyway, loved the episode, and Gayle, as always, you’re right on target.

    Don’t forget that he would placing himself in legal jeopardy if he confesses to her. She can be compelled to testify. She would also be placed in legal jeopardy if she knows and doesn’t turn him in.
