‘NCIS: Los Angeles’: What We Know About Season 13 Episode 7 and When it Will Air

by Lauren Boisvert

A new “NCIS: Los Angeles” airs on January 2 on CBS, and Daniela Ruah herself is directing. The last time she directed was season 12 episode 11, “Russia, Russia, Russia.” Now, she’ll be behind the camera once again for season 13 episode 7, “Lost Soldier Down.”

After a brief fall hiatus, “NCIS: Los Angeles” is back investigating a possible suicide after a Navy Intelligence officer jumps off a ledge. According to the synopsis, the officer was on LSD and leapt to his death. On the fun side of things, potentially, Deeks decides to redo his and Kensi’s backyard while Kensi is away. I predict something catastrophic and hilarious happening to their yard that Deeks has to answer for when Kensi returns. Trust Deeks to always bring the comedy.

For now, we know that the episode airs on Jan. 2; it will probably deal with some heavy topics, with an undercurrent of good-natured humor from Deeks and Kensi. Tune in to the episode to see how that whole exchange plays out.

‘NCIS: Los Angeles’: Eric Christian Olsen on Kensi and Deeks’ Relationship

Speaking of Kensi and Deeks, Eric Christian Olsen spoke about their relationship and why he believes they represent the “genius” of the show. He recalled the moment in season 4 when Deeks finally got up enough courage to make a move on Kensi, and what motivated it.

“I think that you have that moment of clarity,” he said, “and I think we have this in our own lives which is just those perfect moments of clarity in which everything makes sense in the world. And, that was that. That was that moment. That was that kiss. And, that was that moment after that kiss. It’s just like that’s it. And, then we spend the rest of our lives trying to get back to that moment.”

In the episode, Deeks experiences one of his lowest lows after finally kissing Kensi; he gets captured and tortured, along with Sam. After that, he needed to work his way back up to the level of confidence and safety he felt before, when he was with Kensi. Now, they’re happily married, planning for a family, and tearing up the yard, apparently.

When Will Eric Christian Olsen Write Another Episode?

In 2019, Deeks actor Eric Christian Olsen penned the milestone 250th episode of “NCIS: Los Angeles.” Fans are wondering when he’s going to write another one.

Apparently, he has one in the works; it’s rumored that he’ll be writing the 19th episode, which could be another milestone. The 300th episode is coming up, and it’s possible he’s writing that one. Also, Daniela Ruah is getting behind the camera once again to direct that episode. The on-screen husband and wife team are taking the show into their experienced hands, and hopefully they’ll give us something exceptional. No pressure though.
