NCIS: New Orleans Sneak Peeks: Droning On And On

by Melissa J. L. Smith Sciuto / October 13, 2015

Nice weddings in the Big Easy can run as high as $75K, but does the wedding planner give refunds when NCIS: New Orleans finds a dead body at the reception?

Offed with a steak knife, the deceased is a Navy drone pilot who was using a black market drone to gather military surveillance.   When Pride (Scott Bakula) questions if the pilot’s name was leaked to Jihadists or another group who might want him dead, the answer is a definitive “no.”  Evidently, good drone pilots with combat experience are in short supply.

The killer, however, may be a little closer to home. When directed to the public access road outside the base, Pride and Lasalle (Lucas Black) find a throng of protestors demonstrating against the use of drones.  The pair finds out the effect of a drone first-hand when one is sent to attack them.

On a lighter note, Lasalle tries to fix Pride up with a local woman that he met in a bar. Unfortunately, Dwayne has arrested relatives of most of the eligible women in the Crescent City, either at NCIS: New Orleans or during his time at the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Pride expresses concern that Lasalle continues to mourn the murder of his girlfriend, Savannah, by drowning his sorrows in New Orleans nightlife. Women, partying and all-nighters are the temporary solution he is using to dull the pain of his lost love.

There is a special treat on tonight’s episode, “I Do,” when Bakula has a chance to play piano onscreen. Perhaps he will have a chance to sing before the end of the season, which would not be out of character for Pride as Dwayne’s mom was a professional singer.

NCIS: New Orleans also stars Zoe McLellan, Rob Kerkovich, Shalita Grant, Daryl ‘Chill’ Mitchell and CCH Pounder. “I Do” was written by Sam Humphrey and directed by Tony Wharmby.

Guest stars tonight are Titus Makin Jr., Matthew Florida, Abbie Cobb, Matt Battaglia, Elizabeth Hendrickson, Maxwell Jenkins, Shauna Rappold, Harlon Miller, Jody Mullins, Will Koberg, Hawn Tran, Teddy Gathmann, Natalie Pero, Edward Carter Simon, Jhonny Blaze and Kelsey White.

NCIS: New Orleans airs October 13 at 9:00 pm ET/PT on CBS.
