Tonight, NCIS: New Orleans season 5 episode 3 delivered one of the best Sebastian stories to date. It really only makes sense that Rob Kerkovich was the co-writer for it.
In the early going tonight, Sebastian found himself attached to a woman who seemed to be a key witness at the hart of a crime. Yet, there were some other questions that emerged, especially when it was revealed that Carmen wasn’t actually who she claimed to be. As a matter of fact, it looked for a time as though she was an assassin and that she could kill him for knowing too much.

Watching the back-and-forth between these two characters was all sorts of outstanding, mostly because there was a lot of fun here despite all of the action. Sebastian’s eventual interest in Carmen was fun because she was in many ways what he wasn’t — the sleek, sophisticated woman who had no problem getting in the thick of things when the situation calls for it. Meanwhile, Sebastian is very much neurotic, even if he has learned how to be a good NCIS agent over time.
The good news is that Carmen wasn’t an assassin; she was a British undercover agent and she was actually a big asset in solving the case. Beyond that, maybe these two oddballs do have a romantic future, even if we don’t see all that much of it on the series itself.
Pride’s new gig
Tonight, Pride did his part in order to ensure that he could dive head-first into his new responsibilities. The unfortunate reality for him was that this was so much easier said than done. This was a different speed than what he was used to and he’s quickly realized that he is going to have to adjust the job to suit him more so than the job is going to make him adjust. It’s already clear that he is going to find himself mixed up in a lot of bureaucracy here, but in the end, he’s going to still be involved in cases.
Heck, we’re not altogether sure that he is going to keep this job in the distant future.
Overall, NCIS: New Orleans season 5 episode 3 was the perfect sort of spotlight hour, mostly because it gave Sebastian a chance to do something that is rather different than anything that we’ve seen him take on before. The more of this that we get in the future, the happier we’re probably going to be in the end.
