NCIS: Los Angeles Premiere Sneak Peek Reveals Aftermath Of The Explosive Cliffhanger

NCIS: Los Angeles is only days away from returning for its tenth season on CBS, and fans dying to find out how the agents will move on after the explosive Season 9 finale cliffhanger will finally get some answers. A sneak peek at the Season 10 premiere reveals exactly what happened after Callen, Sam, Kensi, and Deeks were seemingly blown up in their SUV. Take a look!

Well, none of the characters look like they're in especially good shape, although they could look a lot worse after the finale explosion that looked like it could have blown them to smithereens. The sneak peek does explain why all four of them aren't killed immediately in the premiere, as one might expect after the apparent attempt on their lives in the final moments of the last episode. The men had to rescue them from the burning car in order for Spencer Williams to question them about the whereabouts of his son.

Unfortunately, viewers know that Williams isn't going to find his son anywhere in the immediate area, as Mosley was reunited with young Derrick in the Season 9 finale. Williams and his men aren't going to get any answers they'd like to hear out of any of the good guys, and the agents may not spill those details any time soon. It may be for the best that Deeks is fully unconscious in this sneak peek. He might have given up the info once Williams started threatening Kensi. Deeks may be able to hold up against torture himself, but he's not the best at letting Kensi suffer if there's anything he can do about it.

Of course, the frantic Kensi would clearly rather he was awake. Her reaction at seeing Deeks out cold -- and perhaps dead -- raises the stakes for the Season 10 premiere more than ever. Those of us who have kept up with NCIS: Los Angeles news know that Deeks is in fact not dead in the first episode of the new season, and a happy event is in his future with Kensi, even if the road to get there will be rough due to what happens to him in Mexico.

The other three aren't looking too healthy either. Kensi actually seems to be in the best shape after she wakes up. She's at least alert and able enough to try and fight to check on Deeks. Sam is barely conscious, and we have reason to believe that Callen will be the most injured other than Deeks. Viewers should probably prepare themselves for an intense hour when the NCIS: Los Angeles Season 10 premiere kicks off on Sunday, September 30 at 9:30 p.m. ET on CBS. Who knows? Maybe it will join NCIS: New Orleans and score an unexpected crossover with the original NCIS. We'll have to wait and see.
