Kensi Blye, Marty Deeks relationship: 5 ways NCIS: Los Angeles fans want it to blossom
He became the new partner to NCIS Special Agent Kensi Blye after her former and begged for her to assist in his mission which involved underage young girls. .. In Season 7, Deeks and Kensi's relationship continues to progress as Deeks. Just when Kensi and Deeks think they have a normal existence and that their of "Feel the Tide," and about ten years from the current timeline of the show. . nine years of marriage, guiding a teenage pseudo daughter into. Deeks: Kensi, you heard Callen, he's not wrong. Deeks: I'm just saying, we're about to be married, I think we can have this conversation, don't you? She did not say no, just that she was unwilling to put a timeline on it. .. Five-0, The Good Wife and, for the first time in Japan, teen period drama Reign.
Although neither Hetty nor Sam had ever confirmed her suspicion, Kensi had a feeling Callen was searching for his family. And for answers to questions he'd had for decades. Deeks had been working at Carter and Son, Attorneys at Law, for nearly seven years at that point. Kensi knew he was satisfied with his work and was proud of what he'd done to help advocate for younger kids in rough home lives, or for parents who couldn't get away from the abusive relationships they were in without expensive legal help.
And thanks to the pro bono work his firm allowed him to do, Deeks was able to provide much of that legal help for free. Still, Kensi knew Deeks missed being an agent. She knew he missed the thrill of solving cases, of chasing after the bad guys and doling out decisive justice in ways the law, with all the nuances of grey, didn't always allow. And even with friendly co-workers at the law firm, she knew he missed working with her, with Cody, Hetty, Eric and Nell.
She knew because she missed it too. Nine years of partnership with Cody couldn't replace the five she'd had with Deeks. They were partners in other ways now.
Married almost a decade and parents to an eight-year-old boy. And there was Hailey, Deeks' sister, in college and graduating from Stanford in a month. They were a family and partners in ways more layered and different than before.
She'd wondered if the changing dynamics might bring about a change in how Deeks thought about his career and their future. And even though a part of her had wanted things to go back to how they'd been, and even with their family growing up, Kensi had known deep down that the reasons for Deeks' decision to leave NCIS hadn't really changed. Their son still needed them, needed the security of one parent safe and away from a dangerous job. Even grown up, Hailey still needed her brother and sister-in-law in her life.
And Deeks still felt just as strongly as he had when they'd found Hailey that he could help kids like her, and could make a difference in the lives of people who needed his help.
Although she and Deeks hadn't talked about the possibility of him returning to NCIS two years ago when Callen left, she knew he'd been thinking about it.
The question was always in the back of his mind. Sometimes she saw it clearly, saw his yearning to be a part of the action she and Cody relived during retellings at barbeques or over drinks. And other days, like when Deeks was playing Frisbee on the beach with Kyle or after he'd won a particularly hard case, she saw the wisp of wanting in his eyes vanish like a passing cloud.
Deeks was where he needed to be right now. The future could change again, but Kensi knew he was happy. And considering they'd successfully weathered five years of partnership, nine years of marriage, guiding a teenage pseudo daughter into adulthood, and corralling a rambunctious son, Kensi knew they had plenty to be content with.
Hetty had promoted her to Callen's position, and Cody to Sam's. Hetty's confidence in her had Kensi determined not to let their Operations Manager down, though the idea of being accountable to Hetty, and to training junior agents, left Kensi more than a little apprehensive. The dynamics had changed further when Hetty recruited two junior agents, David Westin and Liam Murphy. Kensi nodded at David, appreciating his no nonsense attitude.
As a teenager he'd escaped from the gangs he'd grown up surrounded by, finding structure and a home in the military. Westin turned away, exchanging words with Eric, and Kensi turned to Cody and Liam as they checked each other's weapons, handing them back to each other.Ncis Los Angeles - Kensi and Deeks - Kiss scene - 7x07
She couldn't quite suppress the smile on her face at the old superstition. On his first day with NCIS Liam had been assigned his weapon by Cody, who had been checking it out to him and while doing the intensive inspection of the gun, found a missing spring. The next time they'd retrieved their weapons from the armory Liam had wordlessly handed his gun to Cody, who had recognized the gesture and handed his over in return for examination.
When Kensi saw the ritual played out again later she'd questioned Liam about it. He'd joked that the Irish were just superstitious, and Kensi hadn't asked further. Cody took it in stride, knowing that in teams formed like theirs that bonds often came from superstition and tradition that didn't always make sense to outsiders. But he'd known that in the end it didn't make a difference to question it.
He just rolled with it. And as a result, Cody and Liam had formed a deep bond of trust and mutual respect. Tall and wiry, Liam was a former NYPD officer who had left the department under mysterious circumstances that even Kensi didn't know all the details of.
She had a feeling Hetty knew more than she let on, but having been protective of her own secrets, Kensi didn't push. She figured Liam had a right to privacy about his past, as long as it didn't affect her team. Growing up on the west side of Manhattan, Liam had the clipped voice of a native, and the black hair, sharp feature, and blue eyes that marked him as purely Irish, even after the generations passed since his family's immigration from Ireland. He wore his origins as obviously as his accent.
Even without being told, Kensi had surmised he'd grown up without money and in a blue collar family. Early on and after a long day of work capped off by a drink at a local dive bar, Kensi had asked about Liam's family back home in New York. She'd seen him tuck the pain of history away, his eyes guarded. He'd deflected, saying he wasn't in touch with them, even as Kensi could tell the thought pained him.
Instead of pushing him, Kensi had allowed Liam space. And sensing that he'd come to Los Angeles partially to get away from demons at home and a bit on a whim, Kensi had invited Liam into her own family.
Kyle had more than a little bit of a hero worship crush on Liam, and although Liam had a more serious personality than Deeks, they'd struck up a friendship when Deeks offered to teach Liam to surf.
As it turned out, Liam was terrible at surfing, but he excelled at tossing a football on the beach with Kyle while Kensi and Hailey occasionally surfed with Deeks. Kensi passed on the information she'd gotten from Detective Porter, and Cody and Liam exchanged a look that had her instantly on high alert. What are you guys thinking? Narrowing her eyes, Kensi shook her head. Kensi wasn't buying it.

The amused glint in Liam's eyes would have given them away if Cody's studied nonchalance hadn't. Cody grinned at Liam, who chuckled and held up his hands in gesture of deflection. There's no building for us to rappel down and no high speed boat chase in our future," Cody tried to reassure her. Shaking her head, Kensi wasn't comforted. She couldn't deny her team was effective, but often Cody and Liam were the more reckless of the two partnerships.
She and Westin balanced their respective partners out, but being the voice of reason wasn't always the preferred option when decisions had to be made in a split second and lives might be on the line. They're too cautious sometimes. She knew Liam occasionally had a short fuse, it was one of the reasons his partnership with Westin worked.
The more cautious of the two, David helped Liam from going off on a tear without thinking and endangering the team while Liam pushed his partner passed his slightly restrained decision making to take risks based on instinct and quick judgment.
They both left each other a little uncomfortable sometimes but Kensi had seen how it worked for them. They seemed to bring out the best in each other. Liam was in his late twenties while David was in his early thirties. Their slight difference in age wasn't really a problem between. Both men had been matured thanks to their respective histories. Both had grown up in urban cities and even with their backgrounds as different as night and day, they'd found a kinship in each other.
Even in those moments when Liam flaunted rational thought and David had the charge of bringing him back to reality. I know the officer in charge and he'll keep us in the loop.
Besides, a hostage situation takes some precedence. There are three civilians in there and we need to see Steele make it out alive so we can question him," Kensi remarked.
Cody nodded easily, following her lead.

Although Cody would speak up if he had a diverging opinion, his Marine background practically programmed him to follow the authority of the chain of command.
And Kensi was at the top of that chain on their team. As the leader of their team she didn't have the luxury of showing her impatience, not when her team was looking to her to set the tone of their investigation. And perhaps reviewing the case would give them a new angle to consider. What he doesn't have is the ability to interpret the data. He's going to need someone a little higher up in the Navy with different access willing to partner on this.
But before he left the ship this morning he triggered an internal security alarm he didn't know was there when he downloaded classified information to an external hard drive. The Navy's automatic system immediately labeled the breach as a threat and NCIS was notified, and we've been tracking him since he left the ship," Liam replied. Who's he been talking to?
Used his own phone for all the calls. The call to his ex-wife lasted about two minutes and then I'm guessing she hung up on him," Liam replied.
When Cody's eyebrows furrowed in confusion, Liam continued. Soren, each lasting about fifteen seconds, probably to leave angry messages on her phone. Downloading sensitive information and then practically sprinting to Los Angeles? And getting sidetracked by something his ex-wife said that set him off? This guy isn't really thinking straight.
He can be seen visibly pained and distressed while being forced to watch Deeks being tortured. In the season 5 premiere, after Granger and Kensi find the two, Sam asks Deeks if he gave up Michelle, to which he replies that he didn't.

Sam goes to Deeks' hospital room later on and states that he owes Deeks for the rest of his life. Deeks confides in Sam that he was thinking about quitting as a cop, to which Sam says would be a bad idea, admitting that Deeks is an excellent cop.
Kensi Blye Edit Deeks and Kensi share a complicated partnership due to the fact that Kensi is the more experienced of the two and also because Deeks permanently replaced Kensi's deceased partner.
Despite this they do care for each other, although they get on each other's nerves at times. There have even been hints that Deeks and Kensi are romantically interested in one another, and there has been constant continuous moments during which they have flirted with each other and have come close to have romantic contact, although they both strongly deny it. Despite this, they share a kiss in the season 4 finale. In season 5, Deeks admits to Kensi that she was the one person he thought of through his torture after being captured, thus saving his life by keeping him going.
This detail leaves her clearly emotional. The two resume their usual friendship after a bit, until Deeks takes her out on a date without actually telling her it was a date. Kensi says he is back to his original problem with poor communication skills and tells him to say something that he actually means, because if they can't communicate then things won't work between them.
Deeks finally tells her that he didn't want to be there with her. Kensi appears confused before he says that he wants to be with her at his place right now. Kensi stares at him for a moment, clearly thinking about what to do, before she gets up and walks away from the table as Deeks takes a breath before following after her. In the next episode, Frozen Lake, it is implied that Deeks and Kensi spent the night together when Deeks is at work early on and won't make eye contact with anyone and Sam notices as Kensi walks in that she is wearing the same outfit she had on the day before, leaving her flustered.
When they get called for a mission, Sam and Callen watch as Deeks and Kensi awkwardly walk out of the room, unable to look each in the eye. Kensi and Deeks play it off trying to get things back to normal before all of the feelings and Kensi going to Afghanistan. Upon her return, there is still a little bit of tension between the two. In season 6 Kensi and Deeks appear to be getting along as well as ever as 'friends'. There are moments when the two are alone which imply that they still had feelings for each other such as in Episode 8: The Grey Man Kensi opens up to Deeks about her past and when she was homeless following her fathers death.
All of these moments come together in Episode Humbug, where Kensi takes a risk and goes 'all in' by telling Deeks that individually they are 'bold', but together they are and Deeks fills this part in 'safe', yet Densi wants to be bold together. This is followed by a kiss and them both stating that they are going to attempt this with no games involved and 'chips on the table', 'all in'. They once had sex: In "Expiration Date" Kensi and Deeks wake up in bed together and it is revealed that Deeks met Kensi's friends although he then goes on to make fun of them and a fight ensues, but they later make up and Deeks tells Kensi her smile is perfect.
Towards the end of the season, Deeks indirectly proposes to Kensi for the first time. By the beginning of Season 8, Deeks purchases an engagement ring, revealing he is planning on proposing to Kensi. However, they soon begin to face challenges such as when the Office or Special Projects is threatened of being shut down due to lack of progress of discovering the identity of the mole. However, the biggest challenge of their relationship is when Kensi is injured during a mission to capture a criminal in Syria.
The helicopter carrying the team is shot down by a rocket and while Callen, Sam and Deeks are alright, Kensi is severely injured and later falls into a coma. Kensi remains in a coma for several weeks and Deeks continues to visit her and remains hopeful, but still remains worried about her. At some point, Deeks proposes to Kensi while she is in her coma.
However, upon her awakening, Kensi learns she has a long road of recovery and rehabilitation as result of the crash has made her practically paralysed. Deeks continues to support Kensi in her time of need, but Kensi frustrated, angry, upset and slightly depressed begins to take her emotions out on Deeks. However, Kensi refuses to accept in her current condition. Eventually though, Kensi apologises to Deeks for her behaviour towards him and makes him promise to keep the ring until she has fully recovered.
Halfway through the season, the hunt for the mole intensifies when Callen, Sam and Deeks are arrested by different agencies and Kensi later finds herself kidnapped by her friend Sullivan from the Navy hospital during her rehabilitation. Sullivan is revealed to be CIA Officer, Ferris who personally seeks revenge against Kensi as she had accidentally shot him in Afghanistan, resulting in his leg being amputated.
Kensi is eventually found and rescued and she and Deeks are happily reunited together. Shortly after the mole hunt, Kensi fully resumes her place on the team and Deeks and Kensi resume their partnership and their relationship is fully back to normal. Eventually in the season 8 finale, Deeks and Kensi finally become officially engaged. Deeks happily accepts and they are now officially engaged to be married.
In Season 9, Deeks and Kensi beginning making plans for their wedding now that they are officially engaged. However, Callen intervenes and convinces Mosley to keep Deeks on the team and as a result, Deeks immediately returns to the team and resumes his partnership with Kensi. Since then, Kensi and Deeks continue their relationship and partnership as well as continuing making plans for their wedding. At one point in the season, Deeks also buys a bar and Kensi approves of his idea.
In the Season 9 finale, Deeks and Kensi face a major challenge and difference of opinion that truly threatens and jeopardises their relationship. The team discover that Spencer and Derrick are in Mexico, but the mission to rescue Derrick is highly unsanctioned off the books mission as well as extremely dangerous.
