Cool J & O'Connell Conspire on 'NCIS: LA'


On NCIS: LA, "Kensi" (Daniela Ruah) speaks three different languages, is a skilled lip-reader, and can interpret Morse code, but has trouble taking a hint from her co-workers, who are conspiring to get her to do a favor.

On tonight's episode of the police procedural, "Sam Hanna" (LL Cool J) and "G. Callen" (Chris O'Donnell) have special plans to go a basketball game together; however, an obstacle presents itself: Sam's babysitter cancels on him at the last minute.

Needing to take immediate action so that he and G's plans don't fall through, Sam approaches Kensi, who doesn't catch his throat-clearing hint, and asks her what she is doing Saturday night.

Sam and G are strategically passive in asking Kensi to babysit Sam's kids, and it's eventually Kensi who backs herself into it, as she exclaims, "You want me to babysit?"

Later on the episode, Kensi, performing her real job as a field agent, goes to Tijuana with "Marty" (Eric Christian Olsen) to track down a missing body that was stolen after a special task force takes down a notorious cartel boss.
