NCIS: LOS ANGELES: "Blye, K."
NCIS: LOS ANGELES has probed characters' pasts before, in the similarly-titled episodes "Callen, G." and "Lange, H." After this episode, I believe Kensi—established as tough-minded with sniper and hand-to-hand training to match—has the richest emotional past of all. Every episode of this type tries to leave you empathizing more deeply with the character in focus. Not every episode succeeds as "Blye, K." did, in my opinion the best of the series so far. Kudos to Daniela Ruah.
