For fans of the “NCIS” franchise, tonight may be a little bit confusing. After all, we’re getting a new episode of the flagship series on CBS Tuesday night, but not a new installment of the “New Orleans” show. Typically, the two air new episodes in tandem, but the problem that comes with that tonight is simply a matter of scheduling. There is a Vice-Presidential Debate airing at CBS, and as a result of that, pretty much every show airing beyond 9:00 p.m. Eastern time is off the air.
The good news that comes with this is that if you’re patient, not getting an episode tonight means you’ll be getting another one at some point down the road. What we have for you tonight is some of the first details on the upcoming October 18 episode entitled “Escape Plan,” which certainly sounds like it will be one of the more interesting stories coming up this season. After all, the team is going to have to rescue Sebastian after a kidnapping; not only that, but Wendie Malick will be stopping by!
Take a look at the synopsis below for some further insight on what lies ahead:
“The NCIS team must rescue one of their own after Sebastian is kidnapped while at a restaurant with his mother, Sylvia Lund (Wendie Malick), and forced to use his gaming skills in a prison break.”
As for what we’re hoping to see down the road with this show, we’re down first and foremost for episodes that really get out there and try to emphasize the culture of this city in a big, dramatic, and rather-wonderful way. In following that, we’re hoping that there is at least one crossover with another version of the show coming up in the future.
