DR: She’s never seen him be intimate with a woman before, not for real and not undercover. ECO: I think that’s gotta be a compliment, because if it’s people they love as a couple, and they’re comparing us to them, obviously you take that as a good thing. You will inevitably, I think, be compared to some couples like that, because there is a very similar dynamic.She may have heard about him dating, but that was about it. I think the challenge, the fun part of it is for all of these couples to try and have their own thing at the same time that will distinguish each couple. ECO: It’s got a picture of Deeks on it, and then he’s shooting a gun or something else.
Kensi’s confronted with a big, big kiss for the first time between Deeks and his past lover, I suppose, and yeah, it’s very interesting how she’s able to react to that. Obviously, there have been comparisons to other will they-or-won’t-they couples. ECO: You don’t want to be lumped together with ], because it’s obvious that you will be in a situation like this. And people made a t-shirt that I’m going to try to buy and make Kensi wear in a scene. And if Deeks gives that to you as a gift, that’d be the funniest thing ever. ECO: But yeah, there are some really talented people that are passionate about the show, and what more can you ask for? You do whatever you’re going to do as far as storytelling and…to have people respond the way they have is the most flattering and exciting thing ever.
But I’m also searching for our individuality as a character couple. ECO: Most of those videos on You Tube, I did myself. So by the end of the season, how will we be left with the two of them? ECO: That’s a good question, because I’m not sure how much we’re supposed to reveal about the last three episodes.
And when that is threatened, how it affects everybody else says a lot about all of the relationships.
The one coming up May 3, that’s essentially a Deeks-Kensi episode.
” But we have an addition — it’s Claire Forlani, who’s coming in as our operations manager, where we all know that that was Hetty’s job. As I said, we’re working as a group more so than individual partnerships.
ECO: The last three episodes, I think, test them as they test the relationships between all of the characters."But to a certain degree, I think that it's kind of owed to these characters to end up together whenever that may be."

Both boys reached into each other for a hug and a kiss #amazing #family #perfectcousins #riverisaac #wyattoliver #mommybiceps @swrightolsen @ericcolsen A photo posted by @danielaruah on "With the babies, just going through the same phases of our lives at the same time just kind of makes you relate even more," Daniela says."So if [Eric] comes up with bags up to here I’m like, 'Yup, I feel you!And I become, as this character, much more aggressive than we’ve ever seen him. And then to see Kensi, how she navigates that dance. Because all of those qualities are things that you get with your best friends, and are things that you get with your lover, with your partner. How much of that is him playing the roll, and how much of that is who he really is?She becomes, in that moment — instead of aggressive like she normally is — she becomes… Whether it develops into something more physical on the show, I don’t know. But there’s definitely a relationship there between the characters, which is very strong and is very caring. Are we going to be shocked by what we learn about his past? That definitely affects the dynamic of Deeks and Kensi.ERIC CHRISTIAN OLSEN: It’s a terrible idea, by the way.  ECO: I thought it would be super funny if during this interview, Dani answered all the questions, and I just made chicken noises the whole time. Did you expect the ‘shipper aspect of this to be as strong as it has been? What kind of improvisation are we talking about here? ECO: I think there’s moments that I try to extend and push a little harder with to get certain reactions. When did you start noticing the romantic undertones? ECO: I’m going to make this as ridiculously oversimplified and simplistic as possible, and apologize before I even say it. ECO: Sympathetic, but also kind of astutely aware of his frame of mind and [she reacts] to that. I mean, when I said we had chemistry right from the beginning, we got along as people, and we realized very early on that it would be so easy to play around with each other and to make something fun out of the relationship of these characters. ECO: The first thing that Dani said to me when she came up to me was, “In the script it said that Deeks was supposed to be tan and muscley.” DR: I said, “What are you gonna do about it? Now in its second season, the show is frequently on the list of top-rated shows each week, and yet, it has silently given birth to one of TV’s new, completely addictive (but not romantically attached) pairs, Marty Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) and Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah). I certainly didn’t predict what people would want from it or see in it. ” ECO: And I looked at her, raised my eyebrow, and go, “And I heard Kensi was supposed to be hot. ” That is the first thing we ever said to each other, those two lines. ECO: And then she froze and walked away really quickly. ECO: You’ve got to give props to the writers and the producers of it, because they write fantastic dialogue that kind of allows us to play within it and find our relationship.Since Olsen’s upgrade to series regular in season 2, the partners’ undeniable chemistry has attracted the attention of fans — and yours truly. DR: Before “hello.” ECO: I think that’s kind of an indication for me that she was quick on her feet, she’s able to — if acting is just listening and reacting — that’s something she does really well. I was trying to give you props in [this] interview, but the fact of the matter is, yeah. She just left and went and ate like seven oatmeal raisin cookies. If you look at any relationship onscreen as a love story, I think this one is one of those where obviously Dani’s fantastic and you find moments in these scenes that have connections between two characters.
