Kensi Blye is about to go on an intense emotional journey that’s so big, NCIS: L.A. needed two episodes to tell it.
The first part of the double ep, airing Feb. 21, finds Kensi suspected of murder when a man who was once on her father’s sniper team turns up dead — with much of the evidence pointing to her. “She’s determined to prove her dad’s death was a murder and not an accident, which you will then see if that’s the case or not,” previews Ruah. “She’s angry. She’s very angry about her father’s death. He was the man in her life and we also have a little surprise with another family member of hers, which I won’t say who it is. But there’s big turmoil in her life, and I think she’s close to getting what she wants and suddenly there’s interference.”
Becoming the center of this investigation leaves Kensi feeling “isolated,” says Ruah, despite her team’s support, and she struggles to keep her head straight. “She’s definitely confused when she’s given certain news in the beginning and she tries to put it together — she’s still an agent no matter what. She wants to crack the case. But at the same time, she’s extremely emotionally attached to this case, which can cloud your judgment sometimes,” she says. “There’s a very fine line between an assassin and someone who kills as an agent. There’s a fine line between revenge and doing something you have to do. She’s definitely put to the test with those two things.”
And in case you needed confirmation (this is, after all, an NCIS: L.A. two-parter), here it is: “Part 1 ends with something shocking,” she teases. And she’s not saying what it is.
NCIS: Los Angeles | As we’ve previously teased, the hit CBS drama soon will reveal why Kensi joined NCIS – “and it’s a very surprising reason, and it’s a very dangerous reason,” show boss Shane Brennan tells me. And while the backstory will unspool over back-to-back episodes, “It takes place in a very short space of time, as Kensi is pushed to the limit while Deeks is running behind, trying to stop her from destroying the things that she cares about.” Brennan also notes that the catalyst for this story was embedded within Kensi’s Hawaii Five-0 crossover last fall: “Something happened while she was there. That’s when the fuse was lit.”

Apparently, pretty runs in Blaine’s family: White Collar hunk Matt Bomer is nearing a deal to guest-star in an April episode of Glee as the Warbler’s older brother, TVLine has learned exclusively. This is big for a number of reasons. Among them: Since this will be the first time we meet any of the other Andersons, we might finally learn a bit about Blaine’s apparently gorgeous kin. This will also be the first time a lot of people will get to hear Bomer sing — because yes, natch, his character will get in on his sib’s musical number. (Oh, and lest you doubt his pipes, check out this clip below from the 2010 Kennedy Center Honors.) It seems the soap grad is something of a new muse for Glee creator Ryan Murphy: He’s also just cast Bomer in his in-the-works film adaptation of Larry Kramer’s play, The Normal Heart. Your thoughts? Do you see the family resemblance? What song do you hope Bomer will perform with Darren Criss? Via Ausiello once again, trying not freak out right now as my two favorite actors collaborate. Everyone together now - breathe in, breathe out.
Question: How is it that whenever I ask for NCIS: LA scoop, you give me zippo? Mister, you better be holding out on me because you have something especially awesome. —Amy Ausiello: Is it too early to start teasing the season finale? No? Splendid. “Someone’s gonna die that we know well,” confirms exec producer Shane Brennan. “I’ve got the target, I’m just choosing which missile to fire. And there’s a character or two coming back to tie some things up.” Question: It’s about time you gives us a scoop for NCIS: LA. —Gisela Ausiello: There’s a big Kensi-centric double episode coming up titled “Blye, K.” that Brennan says “goes to the very heart of why she joined NCIS” and sets the stage for the big NCIS: LA/Hawaii Five-0 crossover during May sweeps. In possibly related news, the show is looking for an actress in her late 40s to play the estranged mother of one of the show’s female characters.
