Are homeless kids really at the heart of a murder case? This is the crux of NCIS: New Orleans season 4 episode 9 airing on CBS November 21. It’s a story that should be a powerful one, especially since it does play into a very relevant part of big-city life: Homeless populations. No matter the city there are often homeless populations and, to go along with that, are misconceptions of them that they are all dangerous criminals. That’s not the case, and this episode could be a reminder of that.
For some more evidence of this, just take a look at the NCIS: New Orleans season 4 episode 9 synopsis:
“Hard Knock Life” – Pride second-guesses evidence suggesting homeless kids are the suspects in the murder of a petty officer, on NCIS: NEW ORLEANS, Tuesday, Nov. 21 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The band X Ambassadors performs “Ahead of Myself” and “The Devil You Know” at the New Orleans Tricentennial Festival.
This episode seems to be offering up something for everyone, depending on what you watch the show for. If you love great mysteries, you are going to have that in the form of a great case. Meanwhile, you could also have an emotional undercurrent here that offers up opportunities for Scott Bakula and the rest of the cast to shine.
Finally, this episode could give you a chance to see a musical performance from X Ambassadors! Music is a key part of this show, much like it is woven into the fabric of this city. New Orleans is actually gearing up for its Tricentennial. It’s a city that is older than the United States, and it has both the history and the culture to reflect that. This is probably going to be far from the last musical performance of the season from a known act; we’ll have more announcements as they come, but this should contribute to the overall vibe. Odds are, we’re going to be seeing this performance either at the start or the end of the episode — and not in the middle of the case.
