NCIS: LA question: How does/is Hetty handling everything that is going on? — Anna
If by “everything” you mean the massively traumatic events that we first saw in the finale and will continue to see in the premiere, then … probably not well. In fact, according to executive producer Shane Brennan, psychologist Nate Getz (Peter Cambor) will be making a grand reappearance in the second episode, which takes place three or four months after the finale/premiere. “Nate returns because people are having problems with what happened,” he says. “I know a number of months have passed, but at that point, there are still issues. It’s something that plays out for some time.”

ADAM: Executive producer (and hyperbolic quote-giver) Shane Brennan insists that the conclusion of last year’s cliff-hanger in the Season 5 premiere “will have the greatest consequence of any story we’ve told.” So what does that mean exactly? Although it’s safe to assume that Sam and Deeks will escape torture, their emotional scars won’t heal instantly. In fact, the post-traumatic stress will be too much for somebody to bear. “This season, someone will leave the team,” Brennan reports. Guesses?
What can NCIS: Los Angeles fans expect in the season premiere? –Anna
In short, “a great episode of television,” raves Eric Christian Olsen. As he elaborated for me, “This is the darkest and the most honest and the most vulnerable and the most heartbreaking episode for Deeks, but also for the other characters. The best scene that has ever been written for [Deeks and Sam] happens in the premiere; we’ve already filmed it, and [LL Cool J] is so good. And the most honest scene that Deeks and Kensi have ever had together happens in the premiere.” (I think I just gave Anna goosebumps.)
