Where are we going entering NCIS: New Orleans season 6 episode 5? For now, all signs suggest that we’re venturing in an emotional direction.
At the end of this past episode, we had a chance to learn a number of important things — most notably, that it seems as though Lasalle’s brother Cade is dead. For those hoping to see Clayne Crawford on the show again, that’s going to feel like a letdown. There is a small part of our brain that wants to believe he could still be out there, but then we have to remind ourselves of this: Wade doesn’t make a whole lot of mistakes. What she often says does have a tendency to be true. Sure, the body was burned beyond recognition, and maybe you can argue that someone created a ruse so that it would be falsely identified. That’s one of the only things that we can think about to suggest that Cade is still somewhere out there.
If we are meant to believe that Cade is gone, what that means fundamentally is that Lasalle is probably going to be intent on getting some sort of vengeance for what happened. He’s not going to sit idly by, and the concern is that you also don’t want him to venture over the edge.
Moving forward into this episode next week, be prepared to see Pride and Lasalle work in tandem to get some answers — while at the same time Pride tries to serve as his compass. He understands what it’s like to be personally motivated on a case. Just remember what he went through following his father’s murder! That’s a lot of wisdom that he can impart onto Lasalle to make sure that he doesn’t make any mistakes. The investigation does have to be by the book on some level; otherwise, you run the risk of things going haywire and you not only getting justice, but you landing in some trouble of your own.
If you do love the work of Lucas Black, we feel confident already in saying that this episode could be one for the ages. He’s going to be torn-up, but also determined to get his job done.
