That feels like a big fatty middle finger.

I felt the same way when I first read this tweet. What gets me is that I didn’t necessarily hate the episode, but I fell like he’s purposefully stringing us along with the Deeks and Kensi relationship. And not for the benefit of the characters either.
I am fine with Deeks and Kensi not being together just yet, I really am. I mean, personally, I think it’s kind of stupid that two adults who are attracted to each other don’t do something (and I don’t just mean sexy time. Talking would be fine). However, logically I can see why there may be reasons why they would want to take their relationship incredibly super slow. But they have to give us a real reason and tell us with real words. Not a knife sliding across a desk and a look. Not two or three different metaphors that we’re supposed to interpret. Why is it that 10 minutes with a complete stranger who has barely (if at all) seen the two of them interact with each other have a greater impact on the future of their relationship then how they actually feel themselves?
I still don’t understand why Deeks and Kensi are taking a step back from their relationship. Or how that was presented to us in last night’s episode.
So, Dave Kalstein can take his backhanded “fuck you” somewhere else. Being #1 does not mean you made a stellar episode.

I assume that that ending was meant to be hopeful in a way that is also not committing to any major shift in Kensi and Deeks’s dynamic (because they, meaning the writers, are not ready to go there yet?). But honestly at this point it just feels like they are just jerking us around.
