Check out what’s going on in Deeks’ mind in this week’s Surf Log at WikiDeeks! (And check back next week for the “continuation”!)
UPDATE: Ok, after too few hours of sleep, I’m going to take a swing at this episode - and try to be more brief that my usual analyses (& for that, sadly everyone’s going to have a long wait).
It appears I’m one of the few not really upset by this episode, nor am I majorly confused like many others. Did it play out as I expected? 90% no. Yet, this episode went much deeper than usual and in short, left the viewers having to THINK - something sadly missing in much of popular TV. (THANK YOU Dave, Kyle, & Diana!) I feel there was also a more adult level of maturity, life experience if you will, needed to fully appreciate what we were given this week.
The opening BANTER - They are back, as partners. All is just like it was prior to their individual professional and personal chaos. This was a needed foundation, because without their partnership anything else about them is infinitely more difficult to navigate. In these roles, he’s good; she’s good.
The BOX (pt 1) - Deeks is the one who brings up the box. I should have seen how this would play out; it seems so obvious now. He wasn’t going to go near that box without her. It’s not about what’s in it. It’s about what she thinks he wants most; why she chose what she did. It’s the meaning that’s important rather than the some supposed material object. Without her, there is little to no meaning. And no way does he want to interpret that wrong.
The KNIFE (pt 1) - I knew the knife would come back and have notable meaning. Loved that he was so comfortable with it, as it’s a piece of her.

100 Happy Days - Day 23
So I’m days behind. The initial intent was to get caught up, but instead I accepted that wasn’t really feasible and was happy to accept I would just try to get back to it. So at this rate I might get 100 Happy Days complete by the end of the year. I’m ok with that, as other things are priorities.
So the thing I’m really happy about today is this reply tweet. A key writer on NCISLA not only read the post on my blog (about trying to bring “peace” to the fandom, which ended up being sort of a Drabble), but that he thought it was funny! A professional writer of my favorite characters found my writing funny! I felt like the “teacher” had just given me a “gold star”! (Also, it’s more feedback than I’ve gotten at work all year, and that’s including my annual review!)
Since I don’t post episode analyses right away and some lovely followers want to speculate and chat about current episodes (especially those that are Densi-heavy), I welcome you to the “DensiLand Support Group”! Simply click on the title of this post; at the bottom of that page you will find an option to submit “Comments” to be read and replied to by others. Welcome!
They can walk the walk, but can they actually talk the talk? Check out the "Three Hearts" (5x21) Preview.
There seems to have been a bit of… bickering within some of the NCISLA fandom recently. It’s been a long and challenging season, which seems to have… provoked some… spirited passion among some fans. Thus, like Deeks, I feel we might be due for some humor to defuse the tension. Below you will find DensiLand’s take on how the characters might react to the current state of the fandom.
Hetty: This reminds me of the time I ruled Nicaragua for 72 hours…. With a pointed Gorgon stare, You know I could make this so much worse.
Callen: Who are all you people? I WILL figure out who started this whole mess! (And do any of you know my first name?)
Granger: I do not approve of fans; everyone back to work!
Eric: Hang on, I can write an algorithm to fix this.
Nell: Now everyone sit down in groups of similar opinions. You each will have the opportunity to calmly and respectfully share your thoughts. And don’t give me any sass!
Kensi: Yeh, what she said. And be quiet or else I WILL shoot you.
Deeks: Wait, what? Let’s just go grab a beer cause I know you all love me! I mean look at this; I’m 365 days of heaven!
Sam: No, let’s all take a moment to meditate on the words of my favorite rapper, “Team work makes the dream work.” As he throws a kiss and the peace sign with a dimpled smile and wink, Much love!
John Peter Kousakis: Starbucks for everyone!
Joey Wilson: Boom!
Dave Kalstein: I’m going to share with you an abstract parable that will help align your mind and spirit to deal with this chaos, while my buddy Rafael demonstrates how to appropriately attack against these verbal assaults with his new custom blade.
Ok, deep breath everyone and let’s remember why we love this show, even if it’s for different reasons. As we prepare for “Three Hearts”, I consider this title as the cast, crew, and the fandom. The cast and crew work hard to make us love the show and we are part of the “team” that makes the dream work! So let’s get back to “work”.
OMG. I feel like the “teacher” gave me a “gold star”!
