NCIS: Los Angeles season 4 continues tonight in an episode called "Dead Body Politic" and as the title suggests, it looks like the team is going to be getting their hands dirty in politics. 

In the preview video for the episode, we find out that the team is going to be involved with some sort of political candidate. Not only that, but it looks like they are going to be on protection detail for this person as well. I'm not sure what would cause the team to end up on that kind of duty, but I'm sure all will be explained once we see the episode. 

Also, I have to say that I'm not one to get involved in politics at all (I prefer to make my voting decisions quietly), but so far this episode has me intrigued. Maybe NCISLA can actually make me enjoy a subject I usually don't like very much. 

Here are a few other things we learned in the video:

  • Hetty likes to work out with the team 
  • Hetty may find political discourse exhilarating, but Callen apparently does not 
  • Politics ain't for the faint of heart, especially when it involves gunfire 
  • The team will have their hands full as there appears to be whole list of people whose lives are in danger 
  • Deeks wears a suit. That is all.

In the sneak peek clip for the episode, we find Deeks and Kensi going to question a political candidate who gives smarmy a bad name. He's the epitome of all those slimy politicians we've all heard about our whole lives and boy does Sam Anderson pull it off well as Senator Dick Osborne. I'm just watching it on my computer and somehow I still felt like washing my hands when the clip was over. Oh and don't even get me started on the fact that his name is Dick. Ha!

Here are a few other things we learned in the video:

  • Deeks gets mistaken for a political fanboy Deeks hair makes him like a -- wild stallion? 
  • Kensi doesn't appear to like being called a "little filly" 
  • Senator Osborne knows more than he should: namely about the hit list 
  • Senator Osborne sure plays innocent well (despite his shadiness)

What did you think after watching both clips of tonight's upcoming episode of NCIS: Los Angeles "Dead Body Politic"? Who do you think is out to get the other politicians on the hit list? Could it be the shady politician or is his opponent perhaps too nice and hiding a dangerous secret?
