After nearly a month, 'NCIS: Los Angeles' is finally back with all the action we love and adore. The winter premiere of Season 12 will be a delightful thrill to witness, especially with FLETC interviewing the LA team of special agents to see if Deeks would really fit in the role. That said, the teaching ticking anticipation of when the next episode will grace our screen also piques our interest, especially with December being such a hide and seek situation, with every other week being a hiatus one. If you're just as curious as the rest of the fans to find out when 'NCIS: LA' returns with the next episode, worry not, just read on to find out all about it.

According to official TV listings, the wait for the next episode won't be any longer than the usual seven days as 'NCIS: LA' is not pulling another random hiatus this month; not until January 17 at least. 'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 returns with Episode 8 on Sunday, January 10, but not at its usual 8 pm time slot. Instead, the episode titled 'Love Kills' will air half an hour later at 8.30 pm only on CBS.

The network is yet to release an official synopsis for the eighth episode of this season, so right now all we can do is make some speculations surrounding the synopsis of the preceding Episode 7. According to CBS, the episode titled 'Overdue' sees "the NCIS team's murder investigation of a man who sold military information lead to the abduction of a doctor whose cutting edge neurotechnology could be developed into advanced weaponry. Also, team members are interviewed by FLETC to see if Deeks would make a good NCIS agent, and Callen tries to have an important talk with Arkady." 

Finally some good news for Deeks, amirite? It's been difficult watching him and his NCIS special agent wife Kensi Blye struggle so hard with both trying to have a baby and putting their house on the market especially with Deeks' having lost his LAPD liaison job right at the onset of this season. In the winter pre-finale, we had to witness Deeks' heartbreak as intelligence officer Nell told him of the LAPD's cut, but the winter finale turned things around with Hetty calling Deeks to tell him he was accepted into FLETC, and ever since we have been looking forward to the initial rounds of the procedure to kick start.

That said, it's hard to ignore the threat Kesi is facing with her creepy stalking David Kessler getting a wild card to get out of jail after tricking the entire force. The man had threatened to hunt Kensi down, have sex with her, and kill her, not necessarily in that order, quote-unquote. And with him being at large, no matter where the couple seeks refuge, the danger doesn't subside. While the official synopsis for 'Overdue' does not tease anything on that front, the ominous title of Episode 8 hints at a possible kill out of love and heaven knows Kessler thinks his feelings for Kensi are love. 

'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 airs on Sundays at 8 pm only on CBS.
