NCIS: LA "Under Pressure" Episode Recap

Terrorist attack happening and the team must track down where the source will come from.

Oh Deeks, you always have something interesting going on in the beginning of the episode. This time around, he wants to play some weird game that will actually help with team building. At the end, I could kind of see what he meant, but I still have no idea what the game was for. I could see why Kensi was getting so annoyed with Deeks.

Speaking of Deeks, we hardly ever saw him in the episode due to him having to do a mandatory training back in LAPD. Which what sounded like a repeat thing for him, so I hope this doesn't mean anything bad. I just wish he'd become a full fledged agent so he doesn't have to worry about that mess anymore.

Their new case leads to napalm that has gone missing. The first strike actually killed someone that seems to be way more linked to it then they first thought. To make a long story short, it ended up being a terrorist attack. Not the guy dying, but at the end, they wanted to do something bigger then what happened in the beginning.

I do love how, even though this episode was about a terrorist attack, it also dealt with bullying. I love it when shows work this in somehow. Amanda was being big time bullied  at school. How her mother couldn't tell is beyond me, but Amanda started talking to this guy (the guy that died in the beginning) about it and he played it off as wanting to help Amanda deal with the problem by trying to shut the school down due to a gas leak. But Zach had much bigger plans in mind. He was in fact working for the guys who wanted to blow the whole neighborhood up for a point. 

I felt so bad for Amanda. She felt like this was all her fault. She didn't know that Zach was some crazy guy that had bigger plans in mind. She just needed someone to talk to about what was going on. I hope she learned an important lesson. You can always turn to someone for help. You are not alone.

In the end, the team ended up finding the guys in time before they killed themselves and not to mention Amanda. Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that they had kidnapped her because they thought she blew the whistle on them? 

It's taken almost half the season, but I am finally starting to like Mosley a little bit. She is a little harder around the edges then I'm used to, but I am starting to warm up to her more. I really like Hidoko. I was thinking maybe she'd be a good fit for Sam, if he is ever ready for love again? Either that or Mosley, but I don't really know about that one.
