There he teased about the hosts being cast in the upcoming episodes.

“Sisters, we can be sisters,” she added referring to Sarah.

After, Sarah remarked: “Also, I’d love to,” Teresa told her: “You have an amazing Australian accent, we could be Aussie sisters.”

“I could definitely try to copy you,” Sarah shared.

Eric then joked about her accent as he spoke in a British accent.

Despite being on NCIS LA since 2010, Marty could find himself questioning his senior position as a liaison officer.

The synopsis of the upcoming episode, Survival of the Fittest reads: “A Marine falls ill during a training mission due to an attack by a genetic weapon.

“Deeks struggles with balancing work and home life when Rosa comes down with the flu.”

While the rest of the team takes on dangerous missions, Marty will have to overcome a parental mission of his own.

During the season 13 finale, Marty and his wife Kensi Blye (played by Daniela Ruah) became first-time parents after adopting Rosa (Natalia Del Riego).

Although Marty’s mother, Roberta (Pamela Reed) is in town to help out, he may decide to step down to be at home with Rosa more.

Marty and Kensi are adjusting to parenthood with the additional challenge of Rosa being a teenager.

Although they had planned to adopt a baby, they bonded with a young adult and agreed to take her in.

Fans will have to stay tuned to see how Marty will overcome this difficulty and if he will decide to give up his role.
