Oh, Kensi and Deeks!
After being partners for years and suppressing their feelings for each other, Kensi and Deeks slowly opened up their hearts and then finally let the truth out. They care about each other ... a lot!
They haven't said the big "L" word yet, so I won't put words in their mouth, but they were certainly headed in that direction until the job interfered and Kensi was shipped off to Afghanistan without a word to Deeks.
They went from the high of trusting the other to give a relationship a try to the low of being separated.

Kensi: No. I don't think I did. I think you know exactly what I'm talking about.
Deeks: Do I?
Kensi: Damn it, Deeks, you asked me out on a date without actually asking me out on a date. Now, if this keeps going this way and we can't communicate, and we've been over this -- you never say what you mean, and if this is the way it's gonna be, then I don't know how we're ever gonna --
