All season on NCIS: LOS ANGELES, there have been hints and clues about a secret of Marty’s (Eric Christian Olsen) and his involvement in something untoward that happened at the LAPD.
Since Deeks has never been a stickler for protocol, what the LAPD Detective/NCIS: LOS ANGELES liaison may or may not have done is in question. Hetty (Linda Hunt) has warned Marty and Kensi (Daniela Ruah) that Marty is being investigated.
At the end of the last episode, “Defectors,” Kensi and Deeks are approached by LAPD uniformed and plainclothes officers. As Kensi looked on, dumbfounded, they arrested Marty for the murder of his former LAPD partner, Francis Boyle. Marty’s last words to her were “I love you” as he was led away.
After Deeks has been perp-walked through the LAPD and booked/scorned by officers and detectives alike, he is shuttled into an interrogation led by IAB Detective Ellen Whiting (Karina Logue). Still in handcuffs, Marty is attacked by LAPD Detective Bruce Steadman (Nick Chinlund), who accuses him of murdering Boyle.
When Whiting does nothing to stop the attack, Lieutenant Roger Bates (Patrick St. Esprit) bursts into the room and pulls Steadman off of Deeks, pushing Steadman out of the room.
Bates asks Deeks why trouble always seems to follow him, and Marty says he may have been “born under a bad sign.” Bates replies that the sign must have said “Out of order.”
Jokes aside, Hetty advises the NCIS: LOS ANGELES team to do whatever it can to spring Marty. It is likely that he is in danger from the person setting him up for murder. Cops do not fare well in prison.
NCIS: LOS ANGELES also stars Chris O’Donnell, LL COOL J, Barrett Foa, Renée Felice Smith and Miguel Ferrer.
Pamela Reed returns as Marty’s mom, Roberta Deeks. Also guest starring are Jamie Mann, Michael B. Silver, Josh Harp, Paulina Olszynski and Joe Thornton Jr. Tonight’s episode, “Internal Affairs,” was written by Chad Mazero and Executive Producer, R. Scott Gemmill and directed by Eric Pot.
NCIS: LOS ANGELES airs tonight at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
