‘NCIS’ season 13, episode 12 preview: Abby’s brother and an ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ crossover


While “NCIS” and “NCIS: New Orleans” air on the same night, it’s been a while since the two shows have done a full-on crossover. Therefore, it’s somewhat ironic that they are choosing to do so on January 5, the same night that “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago Med” are doing the same thing over on NBC.

“Sister City” is the title for the upcoming two-part event, and the Washington DC and New Orleans teams are going to have to work in tandem in order to determine what happened in a complicated case. At the center of it could be none other than Abby’s brother Luca, who we have not met on the show to date. Since you really have to watch the two episodes to get the full story, we’ve got both synopses for you now below.

Part 1 – “After the passengers and crew of a private plane traveling from New Orleans to Washington D.C. are lethally poisoned, all evidence points to the missing chef, Abby’s brother, Luca (Tyler Ritter). Gibbs and the D.C. team work in conjunction with Pride and the New Orleans team to locate Luca and determine why a  private tech company was targeted.”

Part 2 – “While Special Agent Pride and the New Orleans team investigate a Russian sleeper agent who was involved with Abby’s brother, Luca (Tyler Ritter), Sebastian flies to D.C. to partner with Abby on the forensics in the case. Also, Bishop drives through the night to deliver a package and work the case with the New Orleans team.”

By the end of this episode, let’s hope that we can get some answers about Luca, and who knows? Maybe he will get a chance to be involved in some other stories at some point on “NCIS” down the line.
