Neighborhood Watch (3x22) by @phillydi DENSI-style

Move over Kensi and Deeks! Meet the new suburban IT couple on the block… Justin and Melissa! The buzz over this episode since the trailer came out has been incredible. I thought Twitter was going to explode today with all the excitement! Everyone is waiting for the long awaited shipper moment between these two characters and the question is: will it thrill or disappoint Densi fans out there? With a heavy handed finale coming up, the producers wanted to have a fun and enjoyable episode before facing the dramatic ending of Season 3. What better way to accomplish that but to send Kensi and Deeks undercover as a married couple?! Most of the time the two agents come off sounding like a married couple anyway, so why not use this incredible pent-up sexual energy for comic relief? Even Shane Brennan admits it’s probably the funniest episode they have delivered in the entire history of the procedural show.

We definitely get some new insights into the partners as they go undercover to oust a Russian sleeper cell deep in suburbia. In an interview with E! Online, Eric Christian Olsen admits this episode will find Densi discovering a lot about each other. “I think the best version of a relationship as it matures is two characters that are kind of discovering each other and themselves through that relationship, and this is a good example of that. Every episode has elements of that, and obviously some are more light-hearted, but even in those we put our defenses down and you see who these characters are at the end of the day.”
