NCIS: Los Angeles Review: Kensi the Killer?

by at . Comments

Kensi, a murderer? I don't think so. In the line of duty, she could kill someone, but on her own? No way!

Granger's focus on Kensi explains why he showed up in Los Angeles, but his motivations and intentions are still unclear. If he has been authorizing Kensi's access to files about her father for years, why hasn't he confronted her before now? The killings aren't something that just popped up. Every action he has made makes him look more suspicious and guilty.

Hetty and Kensi

I can't fully review "Blye, K." because the story hasn't been finished yet. I feel like I was forced to stop watching a movie halfway through. So, let's take a look at what we do know.

Kensi went to Hawaii to meet with Blake, one of her father's team members, who told her that her father died from an accident while drunk driving. Given his family history with DUI, Kensi knew that he would never drive after drinking. After her father's death, his unit was disbanded and everyone went their own way. Blake told her he didn't know anything else.

Then, he came to Los Angeles and was killed in a car accident just like other members of his old unit. After him, Fisher was killed on his motorcycle, which left Harris as the sole surviving member of the unit.

Granger wasn't the only one that suspected Kensi of the killings. Harris told her that he was meeting with Blake and Fisher to try and figure out how to stay alive. Unfortunately, they just made themselves easier targets for the killer.

Kensi's father was not part of a sniper team, instead he was a member of a black ops unit. Could the squad have been involved in a mission that to their deaths? Blye's body was burnt in the car accident, could it have been someone else? Is he actually still be alive? I thought maybe he was responsible for the killings because his team broke up after his passing. That maybe they were responsible for his car accident and he taking them out as revenge? But a father wouldn't shoot at his daughter, would he?

The best guess is that each team member was killed because they knew something that threatened the assassin. Harris was the last person alive on the team to fill in the blanks. If he was killed, how will this mystery be solved?

And ... Kensi was shot! If she dies, I'll be disappointed. NCIS: Los Angeles has a tendency to change up the teams often, but the current foursome with Eric and Nell have been my favorite combination.

I really have no clue what is going to happen next. Were there clues that I missed? Who is behind the killings? Is Kensi's father still alive? And, will Kensi make it? This is going to be a long week waiting to find out the answers!

Hello! Anyone knows the make and model of Fisher's blowing motorcycle?

Granger is involved somehow, whether good or evil is the question. I kind of lean toward evil. This is a great episode, it will be interesting to see the conclusion. Kensi's father possibly being alive. On H50 we thought maybe Shelburne was Kensi's father, someone else turned out to be, or so we think. I'm wondering if he is and when they do their NCIS LA and H50 crossover in May, that we might see Kensi's father. Won't really know if that is possible until next weeks conclusion. I'm hoping Granger is not around long term. I like the actor and he does a good job, but I liked it better with Vance in Washington, and Hetty handling things on her own.

OK the episode was clearly about Kensi but can i say that i love Deeks with Sam and Callen. They make such a hilarious trio. I also liked what Haris said to Deeks about his thing with Kensi.

I don't like it when a main character is turned on and this is no exception. But my main gripe is I'm sick and tired of Miguel Ferrer's character Granger. He is such an excellent actor that I don't like his being wasted in a role like this. Please write him out of the show for good right away. The show is always good but it gets entangled with implausible subject lines a lot. Love Hetty.

Did anyone catch the cameo of the Real Life NCIS Director Mark D. Clookie. He played Speacial Agent Clookie.

Who played Granger on NCIS-Los Angeles

What if Granger is actually her father? If he had surgery to hide his identity and has been keeping an eye on Kensi, knowing that the real killer thought Kensi was getting too close, it might make sense for him to arrest her, or as he said, 'think of it as protective custody"

Very nicely done! I understand why they'd choose to end the first part there, but for the record, I would've watched next week anyway had it not been a cliffhanger. XD I'm certain she was wearing a bulletproof vest at the end, though, for reasons people have already covered. But if I didn't know about any future episodes with her in it, I might've been fooled. Again, good job with this episode! ^_^
(And Deeks's "comforting" line for Kensi made me laugh. "Everything's going to be fine." "That's it?" "It sounded longer when I wrote it.")

Rita, as inclined as I am to agree with you because all the pieces fit (Granger worked with Harris at the CIA; Granger allowing Kensi to access files associated with her father's unit; I'm ASSUMING Granger set up/knew of the meet between Kensi and Harris, all the better to eliminate both of them), it still seems too obvious. There's a twist coming--there's ALWAYS a twist on these shows. :-)

KENSI IS NOT A KILLER, LIKE CALLEN SHE IS TRYING TO FIND OUT ABOUT HER FATHER, AND THE ASSISTANT DIRECTOR IS THE KILLER , TRYING TO COVER HIS TRACKS AND FRAMING KENSI WITH THE OUTCOME OF KILLING HER SO THAT HE WILL NOT BE IMPLICATED IN ALL OF THE DEATHS AND WHAT HAPPENED IN AFGHANISTAN. HE WILL NOT GET AWAY AND WILL BE CAUGHT BY HIS STUPIDITY AND HEDDY AND OTHERS WILL STUMBLE ON SOME INFO THAT WILL TRIP HIM UP .
