The Best Episode Of NCIS: Los Angeles, According To IMDb
Ever since Marty Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) was introduced in Season 1, Episode 19 of “NICS: Los Angeles,” sparks flew between him and Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah), and fans began to clamor for the pair to be together. When the two met, Deeks was working undercover for the LAPD investigating a gym for drug dealing, and Kensi was undercover for NCIS investigating a murder. They were equally suspicious of each other but there was obvious chemistry, and the rest of the OSP team sensed it.
Deeks began working as a liaison between the LAPD and NCIS, and by the beginning of Season 2, Deeks and Kensi were partners. Their banter and playfulness made for a nice break from the nonstop action of the show, and it was easy to see there was a lot of trust and a strong friendship between them. In Season 3, Episode 22, they went undercover as a married couple, and it brought their romantic feelings for each other to the forefront. But it would still be another couple of seasons before they really talked about their feelings, and become a couple.
The pair even has a couple nickname, “Densi,” and the episode with one of their most pivotal moments is rated higher than any other episode in the show’s 13 seasons — which says a lot about how much fans have grown to care about this couple.
Deeks and Kensi's wedding is the highest rated episode of NCIS:LA
The Season 10, Episode 17 of “NCIS: Los Angeles” begins with Marty Deeks wandering onto Sam’s (LL Cool J) boat at 3:00 a.m., having doubts about whether he’s good enough for Kensi Blye. After hours spent trying to calm him down, Callen (Chris O’Donnell) tries to help, telling Deeks that if he wasn’t good enough for her, he would’ve met with an “accident” long ago.
As Deeks starts to relax, mob boss Anatoli Kirkin (Ravil Isyanov) appears and tries to kidnap him. After Deeks, Sam, and Callen deal with Kirkin, another situation arises when members of the mob show up at the wedding looking for Kirkin. Luckily, Hetty (Linda Hunt) shows up just in time and runs down the bad guys with her car. The wedding then proceeds without any more drama.
While some fans felt the wedding deserved more seriousness, most viewers felt the episode was right on track. Haktylalkesh wrote on IMDb, “Could it have been more serious? Of course. But you know what, Deeks isn’t the serious one and Kensi isn’t either when she is with him.” IMDb user Sakura_saku wrote, “This episode has everything that NCIS: LA does so well: great action, great humor and banter, great pacing, great character moments and development, and strong continuity and callbacks.”
Viewers waited 10 seasons for this wedding, and judging by the 9.0 rating, it gave most fans exactly what they’d been hoping for.
