NCIS: New Orleans season 5 episode 12 review: Tammy’s military-wife mission

NCIS: New Orleans season 4 episode 21

Tonight, NCIS: New Orleans took a step away from some of the larger stories of this season and with that, gave us an episode that felt a little bit more familiar. This was a traditional case-of-the-week story, but also one that put a significant spotlight on one Tammy Gregorio.

So what happened to cause Tammy to go undercover amidst a group of military wives? Think in terms of a robbery, one in which the guilty parties sported clown masks and did their best to get away undetected. For Tammy, trying to infiltrate this group wasn’t easy in some ways, given that they were such a tight-knit group and not altogether accepting of strangers. That also may have been because some of them were actually involved in said robbery — it may not have been all of their collective idea, but they still found themselves taking part in it.

There were a few things that Tammy did along the way here that were super-intelligent, with one of the biggest ones being using Pride as a way in which to create an us vs. them mentality with NCIS. This allowed her to understand more of what was really going on with the robberies, but eventually she did find herself in too deep. That’s when she found herself being roped in to the operation of Manning (the dude in charge of all of this) and forced to take part in a robbery. This set up the big showdown between him and NCIS a little bit later in the episode. Eventually Pride shot Manning, knowing that there wasn’t any other choice.

As for one of the women involved in the robberies in Ashley, Tammy worked to make sure that she wouldn’t get as harsh of a sentence — she felt threatened and coerced into doing it, and while she made some bad choices in another situation she may not have. That’s what led to Ashley telling her in the end that in another life, the two could have been good friends.

CarterMatt Verdict

For those of you waiting for a Gregorio showcase, this was your episode — there was some funny moments (Sebastian and Gregorio), and then also a really great one where the two decided to move in together! That’s going to be fun, but for the sake of tonight we’re just glad to have a really intense episode that gave us some updates on a couple of other important characters within the greater NCIS world.
