'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 6 could see team’s dynamics change further with Lucas’ brother missing and Sebastian’s new career choice
Lucas will now follow the case of his missing brother and may be missing in action in the coming episodes. Sebastian too may not stay with the team for much longer since he did decide to go through with his application to the Reaction Team
'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 6 sheds light on the members of the team as Dwayne Pride's (Scott Bakula) trip to New York gives the team time to ponder over their personal lives. For instance, Lucas Black's (Christopher LaSalle) brother Kade is missing, and Lucas doesn't know why his brother would leave his wife and stepson alone in a motel to disappear.
Lucas initially assumes that his brother's disappearance has something to do with him being bipolar. Lucas tells Kade's wife his brother has disappeared before, and this could be one of those times. However, things don't turn out to be as simple as they seem on the surface.
Similarly, Sebastian Lund (Rob Kerkovich) is also considering applying to the Reaction team. Sebastian has felt like the team's geek for the longest time and in this episode, he is ready to break out of the role he had boxed himself in. He is, however, still unsure of how to proceed and if it's the right choice for him. He is still restricted by how his team would perceive him after they learn about his decision.
Throughout the episode, we see these two characters struggle to make important decisions, which are sure to affect the rest of the season. Especially Kade's disappearance, since it has come to light he was trying to help his stepson out of a tight situation.
The kid wanted some extra cash and decided to deliver packages with drugs in them. One of the packages goes missing after his backpack gets stolen and to safeguard him from people he was working for, Kade moved him and his mother to a motel and before going missing. Lucas will now follow this case and may be missing in action in the coming episodes.
There is also the possibility of Kade's case intertwining with another case the New Orleans team might handle in the future. Sebastian too may not stay with the team for much longer since he did decide to go through with his application to the Reaction Team.
While Loretta tells him initially this might be a bad idea, Sebastian works through his insecurities and finds a strong reason to follow through with his plans. Will we see new members join the team? Hannah Khoury's (Necar Zadegan) demotion has already changed the dynamics and we will now see how Dwayne's team will handle further changes.
The next episode of 'NCIS: New Orleans' will air Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
