Descending upon NCIS: New Orleans tonight is something akin to the Tasmanian Devil.

Special Agent, Naomi Parsons (Kate Beahan) of the Australian Defence Force Investigative Services spins into action when an Australian Royal Navy Lieutenant is murdered in the Crescent City.

The deceased lieutenant was an integral part of high-level negotiations regarding nuclear weapons.  Parsons suspects that his murder was a stall tactic designed to stop a treaty between the United States and Australia that would allow U.S. missiles on Australian soil as a counter-measure to potential Chinese air strikes.

Any group or country that would want to resist such an agreement is suspect, and Agent Parsons is on a very determined road to prove it. So aggressive is the Aussie that Dwayne (Scott Bakula) calls her a “tornado riding on the back of a hurricane.”

NCIS: New Orleans also stars Lucas Black, Zoe McLellan, Rob Kerkovich, Shalita Grant, Daryl ‘Chill’ Mitchell and CCH Pounder.

Shanley Caswell returns as Pride’s daughter, Laurel, and other guest stars include Meg Steedle, Joe Egender, Martin Bradford, Donny Boaz, Dominic Alexander, Dalton Gray, Savannah Desormeaux and Michael A. Howell.

Tonight’s episode, “Foreign Affairs,” was written by Sanford Golden and Karen Wyscarver and directed by Laura Belsey.

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