Kilbride ‘orders’ Kensi and Deeks to kill a Russian gang in season 18 of NCIS: Los Angeles.
Season 18 of NCIS: LOS ANGELES may have ended earlier this year, but that hasn’t prevented eager CBS viewers from rewatching previous episodes in preparation for the 19th season’s arrival next month. And it turns out that the deleted scenes contained a few surprises that were never broadcast.
With the premiere of season 19 of NCIS: Los Angeles just around the corner, characters like Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) and Kensi (Daniela Ruah) will have a lot to live up to in terms of the high-octane action sequences that the previous series produced. This was clear in the season 18 finale on CBS, when Sam (LL Cool J) and Roundtree (Caleb Castille) investigated a strange case of military dolphins. Admiral Kilbride (Gerald McRaney) had some fairly shocking words of warning in a new deleted scene, so the crisis didn’t end with the episode.
Deeks had been kidnapped by Kirkin (Ravil Isyanov) and his Russian gang, only to be let free in order to relay information to NCIS. Kirkin requires assistance in dealing with Igor Two, a disgruntled former ally.
Meanwhile, Sam was working on a case involving a shot dolphin that had a Russian military microchip put in it.
As their investigations and missions progressed, it became evident that the two cases were becoming increasingly intertwined.

In the season 18 finale, Deeks stated, “Admiral,” as he and Kensi prepared to visit the aquarium.
Kilbride cut through the small talk and asked, “What’s the plan?” Kilbride was eager to learn what the pair had planned in order to find the shooter of the slain dolphin.
Kensi told her supervisor, “We’re going to put up a perimeter around the tank and see if we can get eyes on one or both Igors.”
“And see if this is where they kept the remainder of those Russian military dolphins,” Deeks added.
Kilbride said, “Good luck with that,” before giving the two a dark and ominous instruction.
“Oh, if you find that any of these Russians put a bullet into that dolphin’s head, oh, if you find that any of these Russians put a bullet into that dolphin’s skull, oh, if you find that any of these Russians placed
