Tonight on NCIS: New Orleans season 6, we had arguably the most personal story for Christopher Lasalle in some time. He was doing everything that he could in order to hunt down his brother Cade, who was out there in the wind. Unfortunately, he was having a hard time finding him.
As a matter of fact, he wasn’t even sure that he was alive for a good chunk of the end of the end of the episode doesn’t offer us a whole lot of confidence. At the conclusion of the episode tonight, Wade came out and told Lasalle that she had bad news after a body was found that was burned beyond recognition. At the moment, the easy takeaway from this is that Cade is dead — unless, of course, there’s something else that Wade says that the show will pick up on next week.
If Lasalle does lose his brother here, the obvious fear that we’ve got at the moment is that his family is getting ever smaller — and yet again. Just think about what happened already with Lucas Black’s character with his father! That’s one tragedy and now, he is going to be faced with another.
For now, we have to assume the worst based on what happened within this episode, but we’ll continue to hold out the slightest bit of hope. If there is a warning side that Cade is dead beyond what we’ve seen on the show so far, it’s this — Clayne Crawford has not been booked for a return on this show, at least in a way that is public knowledge. As a matter of fact, the former Lethal Weapon star has not had a physical role on the series in some time.
Clearly, Lasalle’s story is meant to be one of the major ones that sits with you for some time, including some of what is going on in regards to Pride and his nightmares. This season is bringing out more of its standard case-of-the-week plots but beyond that, there’s clearly more that they want to bring to the table.
