Kensi will be wearing her dancing shoes when she goes undercover as a club dancer in an upcoming NCIS Los Angeles season 8 episode 20.
This is a huge breather for Kensi (Daniela Ruah) since her recent near-death experience and almost paralysis. In episode From Havana with Love, the Naval intelligence agent will hit the dance floor as a professional dancer, while her partner, Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen), acts as a bathroom attendant.
Ruah’s character will be dancing with George Akram (West Side Story) in the forthcoming NCIS LA episode. Dancing is not new to Ruah. She won Portugal’s version of Dancing with the Stars in 2006.
However, the actress admitted that she felt nervous when she filmed with Akram. She told TV Guide:
“He’s a really good dancer and I was little bit intimidated. But he was very sweet and he taught me a lot.”
When the show returns in April, the NCIS LA team will investigate a defense contractor, who designs a nuclear attack weapon. She will be under NCIS scrutiny after her estranged husband accused her of selling highly classified Navy secrets to a foreign government. Kensi will go undercover as a dancer at the Cuban club where the husband works.
Lou Ferrigno Jr. will play the role of the husband, Victor Larmont. The wife, Rebecca Larmont, will be portrayed by actress Shanna Collins.
NCIS Los Angeles season 8 episode 20 will air on April 9 at 8/7c in CBS. The Academy of Country Music Awards will take the show’s timeslot next week.
Quick Recap of NCIS Los Angeles Season 8 Episode 19
If NCIS Los Angeles season 8 episode 20 will focus on Kensi and Deeks, the previous episode mostly dealt with Sam (LL Cool J) and Callen (Chris O’Donnell).
The partners successfully prevented a plane hijacking and potential selling of classified intel to bad guys. They managed to arrest the gunmen on board and prevented another from transmitting classified data by knocking him out with a laptop.
Meanwhile, Deeks was looking forward to the weekend because he planned a get-together for Kensi and her out-of-town friends. The couple initially argued about plans for the weekend. Then he told her they have to stay in town because some of her friends are coming this weekend.
Unfortunately, the get-together was not shown in episode 19. What was the get-together all about? Was it another wedding proposal from Deeks? Can viewers expect Deeks to propose again in episode 20?
NCIS Los Angeles season 8 airs Sundays in CBS.
