The second part of the "NCIS" introduction to the New Orleans team airs this week, and on Monday, March 31, CBS released a sneak peek that confirms what we thought: that we like Loretta Wade (CCH Pounder).
In this next "NCIS" episode, Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and Pride (Scott Bakula) chase leads in New Orleans after evidence points to a copycat of the infamous Privileged Killer – or could the real Privileged Killer still be out there? Meanwhile, Bishop (Emily Wickersham) sends Tony (Michael Weatherly) a special souvenir as he, McGee (Sean Murray) and the FBI keep tracking political connections to the case from DC.
The "Crescent City: Part II" sneak peek shows Gibbs with Pride, Lasalle (Lucas Black) and Loretta at the latest crime scene, but this guy has been dead a while, so long that the gators have gotten to his body. Loretta offers up a prize to the first one to establish time of death and also confirms that this guy was killed the same way as the previous victims: stab wounds to the abdomen and a slit throat. However, they may also have a lead: fibers under his fingernails.
Oh, and his body was found by a swamp tour guide and Japanese tourists, who have a somewhat skewed perspective about what they should expect to see in New Orleans.
"NCIS" season 11 airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on CBS. What do you think of this episode 19 "Crescent City: Part II" sneak peek?
