'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 Episode 8 Spoilers: 'Love Kills' sees Deeks land a job, who is Callen's new enemy?
Callen speaks to Deeks' trainer about capturing one of Callen's old acquaintances, here's all you need to know about it
So, a lot had happened in the last episode of 'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12, titled 'Overdue'. We saw how Callen had spoken to Anna's father with intentions of letting him know that he was serious about Anna and this is what he had wanted to put forth in the perspective of a long-term commitment, like marriage. However, The moment Arkady jokes about Callen calling him "papa" or wanting Anna around for the rest of the life, Callen lets the discussion be and switches to a case that he is working on. Then we also saw Deeks sit down for an interview after having lost his job at the LAPD and this time, he hopes to ace.
The upcoming episode of the show, titled 'Love Kills' will show how he has managed to succeed in his interview, and in fact, get actively involved in his training. Sure, it doesn't look like he is having the best of time, running laps, but he is desperate and won't let his frustration show.
The official synopsis of 'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 Episode 8 is as follows, "When the team investigates the murder of a man about to reveal the source of a counterfeiting operation, an old acquaintance becomes their prime suspect and reveals the true reason for her return; Deeks struggles during training."
The promo of the episode that we saw as well features Callen speaking to Deeks' trainer about capturing one of Callen's old acquaintances, and she is apparently the one who loves bombing places. So the team will be involved in investigating this case but otherwise, there are a lot of arcs on the sidelines that will also be explored in the upcoming episode. Take, for instance, the conversation that Fatima has with one of her colleagues.
It is about the Black Lives Matter movement and the racial injustice that the people of America were fighting about through 2020. Her colleague explains how during a dialogue with his family, the conversation veered in the direction of a cop's role in police brutality, that the real-life Black Lives Matter movement had centered on, and asked if they were really on the right side of this conversation.
He had wondered when cops became the problem, instead of the solution that they were designed to be. He also asks when and if people will begin to trust law enforcement agencies and their employees again. Of course, Fatima tries to convince him by feeding him the same line that we all have heard multiple times over the last year. That the cops are doing everything that they can to protect the public. However, her colleague interjects and tells her that he hopes to be the person that the public would look for when there is a problem, and not steer away from.
'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 airs every week on Sundays on CBS.
