‘NCIS: New Orleans’ season 3, episode 5 preview: A plane crash and its aftermath

New Orleans -While episodes of “NCIS: New Orleans,” much like many other editions of the franchise, do often have a good bit of humor and heart to them, the latest one that we’ve got coming your way on Tuesday seems to be distinctively much more emotional than many others we’ve seen in some time. The title here is “Course Correction,” and the promo is rather emotional as Pride promises that he and his team are going to do whatever they can to find answers after an unspeakable tragedy.

The synopsis below does a good job of at least presenting specifically what this tragedy is:

“NCIS and FBI investigate a private plane crash in the bayou that killed three sailors. Also, Sonja and Lasalle interview candidates for the team’s open agent position.”

The agent position is one that’s been there since the start of the season, and we presume that the show is taking its time finding the right person for the role — which is great, mostly because you don’t want to rush said things, and you also want to spend a little bit of time getting to know your established characters even further. This is a pattern that several other crime series in the CBS family have followed over time. For one example, just take a look at what was done over on “NCIS” proper following the departure of Cote de Pablo, or how “Criminal Minds” waited until the start of this season to plug someone in as a replacement for the character of Morgan played by Shemar Moore.
