Thanks for your preview and all the BTS photos. I remembered the one of the child guest star with Hetty.
I’m really looking forward to this episode, first because it appears to be an intense, interesting story (even if the sneak peek with Callen lowering himself into the water tank seemed quite claustrophobic…) and then because I’m very eager to see how Deeks and Kensi will further discuss having children. I do hope we will see more than that quick bullpen scene and they will talk as adults dealing with an important moment of their life together. It is natural that when the dream/fantasy is starting to become real you may be a little scared, especially with the childhood Deeks had.
I’m very curious to see what the authors have planned for Densi in the remaining Season 7 episodes. Still crossing my fingers for Season 8 and everything they have promised us (like Deeks M. episode).
I think all the kids in the episode along with Kensi’s latest reading material will lead to some serious conversations. Frank Military being around helps too.
Loved the photo with Linda Hunt. I realize LL Cool J is an international superstar and has been for 30-years but I’m stunned more actors don’t want their photo taken with an Academy Award winner.
Thanks for the kind words!
Thanks for putting together another great preview. I am really looking forward to this episode which looks very intense.
The preview was terrifying. I can only imagine what they’re looking at.
Thanks, Tess! Love all the sneaks and bts. With Frank Military writing and directing, this episode looks to be off the hook.. Can’t wait to watch.
When the promos make you nervous, you know they have a great hour planned!
