The team was hostile to Hunter on last night's episode of NCIS: Los Angeles (see TV Fanatic's NCIS: LA review from earlier). That's not likely to change next week when she makes them change partners.
When Sam is sent undercover as a bomb specialist to find stolen explosives somewhere in the City of Angels, he's partnered with Deeks of all people, while Callen is in turn partnered with Kensi.
The comedic possibilities are great. The team's general morale and attitude regarding Claire Forlani's Agent Hunter are a different matter, however. This has to be building toward something big.
