NCIS: LA Mega Buzz: Will Kensi Consider a Career Change?

Are kids in the picture for her and Deeks?

Liz Raftery

We already know that a Kensi-Deeks engagement is coming down the pike on NCIS: Los Angeles, and a conversation about whether to have kids will likely follow. But that discussion will open a whole new box of questions for the couple, and they may have some tough decisions to make.

Producers aren't taking the story line lightly, new showrunner R. Scott Gemmill told TVGuide.com ahead of the Season 7 finale. But one option that's been discussed would be Kensi (Daniela Ruah) quitting her job in order to focus on motherhood - or at least moving into a less dangerous line of work.

"It's tricky," Gemmill admits, "because why would Kensi have to be the one to give up her career? But on the other hand, you don't want to damage the character by making her seem like she's not a nurturing individual. Because she has a skill set that she wants to use for as long as she can, because she makes a big difference in people's lives. It's a tricky question, especially for Kensi, because of being a woman. I think there's extra pressure on her to choose one way or the other."

What do you think, NCIS: LA fans? Should Kensi put family ahead of her career - or is it possible that Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) could be a stay-at-home dad?
