'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 Episode 8 Spoilers: Does Deeks get accepted into FLETC? Here's an easter egg
The answer comes all the way at the end of the episode when Agent Martinez ends up calling our beloved former LAPD liaison by his preferred moniker
Spoilers for 'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 Episode 7 'Overdue' and Episode 8 'Love Kills'
It's a difficult day filled with painful anticipation for Martin Atticus Deeks played by Eric Christian Olsen. Not only is his wife Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah) being hunted down by an old psycho stalker of his, but he too faces the risk of possibly being canned from the NCIS forever. Agent Martinez of the FLETC is in town and at the 'NCIS: LA' headquarters to interview not just Deeks but also his former colleagues at the Los Angeles team. Still, the question we find ourselves burning with is whether Deeks gets accepted to FLETC or not?
In Season 12 Episode 7 'Overdue', "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."
The answer for whether Deeks gets into FLETC comes all the way at the end of the episode where Agent Martinez ends up calling our beloved former LAPD liaison by his preferred moniker - Deeks, the way his friends call him. This comes after a lot of back and forth between Deeks and Martinez, including his controversial past in the LAPD where he claims he was rejected from teams for being vocal about injustice whenever he saw it. In the final moments of the interview, Martinez commends Deeks for his passion for speaking out and if that wasn't a sign good enough, the clip for the next episode solidified it.
In the upcoming Episode 8 titled 'Love Kills', based on teaser clips, Deeks can be seen indulging in some sort of training in the middle of nowhere. Although Martinez did tell him his application is seasoned, although somewhat unethical in certain spheres, looks like our golden boy made it through and through. Not like there was ever a doubt surrounding Deeks' application into the preliminary raining for NCIS given his experience working as a liaison for the LA team. But considering the tough luck he has been granted within the recent past, one wouldn't be too wrong to deduce he didn't get through.
'NCIS: Los Angeles' airs on Sundays at 8 PM only on CBS.
