How long will Talia be sticking around on NCIS: LA? — Mary
Sorry, Densi ‘shippers: It doesn’t look like Talia (Mercedes Masohn) is going anywhere soon. “We love this character,” executive producer Shane Brennan says. “Without a doubt we’ll be bringing her back.” But don’t expect Talia and Kensi to become BFFs anytime soon. “Let’s just say things become heated between [Talia] and Kensi when Talia gives her some unasked-for advice,” Brennan teases. “Her impact is both emotional and physical.” Can you say catfight?
“We are going to try to make the show as noisy as we possibly can,” showrunner Shane Brennan told TVLine during our Fall Preview Q&A.
Fortunately for NCIS: LA, Brennan says, “the writers, the cast and the crew have always operated at 100 percent. We’ve never backed off on anything, and we’re not backing off now in any way.” So the idea is to take what already works and kick it up a notch when possible.
Question: Would love some NCIS: LA scoop, please — anything Hetty-related would be fantastic. —Michelle
Ausiello: Lest you suspect that the Hetty cliffhanger will neatly/quickly resolve itself as previous ones have, as Season 6 opens, “We actually see Hetty reach a point where she cannot resolve the situation herself,” showrunner Shane Brennan told Matt Mitovich. “She hits a wall, where she can’t do any more than what she’s done.” [Cue a rather unexpected savior.] Unrelated bonus scoop: Early on in Season 6, Rocky Carroll will cross over from NCIS to appear as Vance in “more than one” LA episode.
