NCIS: NEW ORLEANS Sneak Peek: Sisterly Love

NCIS NOLA photo s2e16 If It Bleeds

St. Patrick’s Day festivities in the Crescent City already are underway this week as the carriages rolled down Decatur Street through the French Quarter on Friday and the Irish Channel sported the green on Saturday.  The Times-Picayune has kicked off its annual “All Things Green” photo event, and the Big Easy is focused on the Luck of the Irish.

But luck runs out for Chief Warrant Officer Evan Babisch who ends up on the wrong side of a party bus.  NCIS: NEW ORLEANS takes time away from the green beer and green olive muffulettas to try to determine if the Chief stepped in front of the oncoming bus or was pushed.

As the team investigates, the evidence leads Brody (Zoe McLellan) to similarities between the sailor’s death and the death of her sister.  As she strives to find a connection, Pride (Scott Bakula) begins to fear that she is reaching at straws as they search for new evidence.

Loretta (CCH Pounder) offers emotional support for help ease her friend’s pain, and Sebastian (Rob Kerkovich) puts his scientific skills to the test as he tries to find answers for the grieving agent.

Others, including Daniel Nolan (guest star David Hoflin), are less sympathetic, urging Meredith to move on with her life and stop looking for answers that “aren’t there.”  Easier said than done for some people.

NCIS: NEW ORLEANS also stars Lucas Black, Shalita Grant and Daryl ‘Chill’ Mitchell.  Guest stars on tonight’s episode, “If It Bleeds,” include Scott Klace, Isabella Hofmann, Garikayi Mutambirwa, Melissa Farman, Matt Socia, Noëlle Renée Bercy, Anne Nichols Brown and Tim Bell.

“If It Bleeds” was written by David Appelbaum and directed by Bethany Rooney.

NCIS: NEW ORLEANS airs tonight at 9:00 p.m. on CBS in the United States and on Global TV in Canada.
