NCISLA Case Briefing: Granger, O. (S7E22)
“Granger, O” – As Granger escorts Jennifer Kim (Malese Jow) back to Los Angeles, he interrogates her regarding a North Korean spy and she admits to knowing he is her father, on NCIS: LOS ANGELES, Monday, April 18 (9:59-11:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network. Written by: Kyle Harimoto | Directed by: Dennis Smith
Yet another of the primary team members has received their own titled episode. (As a Deeks-centered fan site, we are attempting to withhold expression of the continuing oversight on this matter.) Moving on….
The show was clear in setting off our “Spidey senses” regarding Granger and the young woman somehow connected to North Korean spies. The mystery was in striving to determine the possible genuine nature of the situation versus what could be presumed as yet another common ploy to connect to a suspect in order to prompt some level of “confession”. Was Owen a man literally facing his past or just employing covert tactics to solve a case? This one did feel real. And it sounds like it was?
The press release states Ms. Kim’s admission to knowing Granger is her father. (Can anyone else hear Granger’s recognizable bass voice echoing that famous statement from Darth Vader?!) How? Did her mother tell her this? If her mother was a spy, were her words truth or yet another application of conspiratorial trade-craft?
If we accept all these clues as fact, might this prompt some type of potential awkward bonding with Callen? G found his father and Granger found his daughter?
Speaking of found, Beale just found “his game”? Based on the notable prior 3-on-3 effort, the Tech Operator was portrayed as an athletic novice. Now we’re to believe he may have more experience than the vast majority of his colleagues. Is anyone else confused?
Deeks’ Week: The dark reminiscing of lone missions from Nate’s antics last week, along with the sleep-eating-thievery issues, seems to be mere thoughts of the past. Instead, the always entertaining team effort around the hoop kicks things off in a far more jovial manner this week. My, how times have changed from Densi battling each other (on and off the court) to now teaming up against their senior colleagues.
And now the relatively newly-minted couple are off to one of the Cupcake Girls nuptials? Proposal. Wedding. Marriage. Kids. The clues this show’s dropping about the presumed future of Densi resembles a domestic minefield! With that in mind, will Deeks feel like he’s in the middle of a warzone of giddy girls in dresses or comfortable with the thought of inserting himself and his princess into a similar situation?
