NCIS: Los Angeles has a new episode on the schedule tonight at 9:59pm ET/PT. Here’s the first sneak peek from “Internal Affairs”, featuring Marty Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen). (You can also find it on CBS.com, CBS Press Express and SpoilerTV.)
And here’s scene number two, which features Deeks and guest stars Karina Logue (LAPD Detective Ellen Whiting, Internal Affairs), Nick Chinlund (LAPD Detective Bruce Steadman) and Patrick St. Esprit (LAPD Lieutenant Roger Bates). (It can also be found on CBS.com, CBS Press Express and SpoilerTV.)
E! Online also shared a clip, which you can watch here. It features Deeks and Detective Whiting.
Olsen spoke to E! Online about the storyline several weeks ago. “We don’t know what his role in any of this was. We know there are events that have taken place,” he said. “Is he the catalyst for that or is he a victim of circumstances?”
Olsen also did an interview with TV Guide, and here’s an excerpt:
TVGuide.com: It seems like Deeks’ past has caught up with him. What can you tell us about his arrest?
Olsen: We are now reaching the precipice of what … that internal affairs investigation is actually about. Obviously, he was arrested for the murder of another police officer. It turns out that he’s arrested for the murder of his ex-partner. One of the things that I’ve been tracking is the Serial podcast. I think what makes that such great storytelling is we spend so much time and effort trying to figure out if this person is guilty. I think the success of this storyline is that, in Serial, you’re meeting him after the crime and then you decide post-crime what the situation is. [With Deeks], we’ve now had five years of emotional attachment to a character, as he fails in his job and has successes, falls in love, tries to start a relationship. And now we reveal this possible catastrophic event that he’s been hiding from everybody, including the person that he loves the most in the world.
