'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 6 Episode 19: Will Khoury and Carter hook up? Fans say might just remain friends
Spoilers for 'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 6 Episode 19 'Monolith'
After weeks of back and forth, it looks like Agents Quentin Carter (Charles Michael Davis) and Hannah Khoury (Necar Zadegan) might get along after all. And more, actually, if that whole "I get you" vibe was real on the latest Episode 19 of 'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 6.
Titled 'Monolith', on the latest episode the action kicks off "when Sebastian is injured while unsuccessfully trying to prevent a kidnapping, and NCIS races to find the missing woman and her abductors." The synopsis also teases that "the team gets a peek into Agent Carter's personal life," and things end of a positive note after all. Ever since Carter joined the team as a replacement for the late beloved agent Christopher LaSalle, both the team and fans have had a hard time getting used to the cocky, snarky, condescending man. With a penchant for proving he is right and above everyone else, Carter was having a hard time settling in, until tonight's episode, when Khoury barges into his apartment and finds a woman cooking for him.
Carter tells Khoury she's just a friend and it's obvious he's lying through his teeth because of the faint smirk hanging off his lips every time the topic comes up. Later in the episode, however, Carter calls Audrey Spencer (guest star Jasmine Batchelor) his girlfriend, and soon after, she barges into the NCIS: New Orleans headquarters to have a word with the man himself. Audrey tells Carter she can't be his girlfriend because of all the walls he puts up around him - something that will never be enough for Audrey. She admits to having found someone else with whom she wants to take things to the next level and leaves a brokenhearted Carter in the middle of his entire team.

Luckily for Carter, Khoury comes armed with a bottle of whiskey. Much like the fans who took to Twitter to quip "Carter is a normal human being after all," Khoury notices his obvious heartbreak and even though he claims he's not one of those people to talk it out, Khoury has a way of getting under his skin, something that makes us believe that there might be more to the friendship in the episodes to come. What also hints at a possible romance or beyond platonic relationship is that at one point in the episode, while talking to Audrey, Carter talks about Khoury's personal impatience owing to the tragedies she has been through in the recent past. This does hint at his interest and compassion towards the tough as nails Khoury.
Noting these minor but significant details, fans shared on Twitter how: "Carter is starting to care about Hannah's (Khoury) situation but now she's the tight-lipped one. Hmm." But if the entire fandom's beliefs are to be trusted, more than a romantic liaison, things between Carter and Khoury are going to be platonic, just like the best friends kinda thing.
"Hannah and Carter may in time, end up being the best of friends," shared a fan on Twitter while another added: "Carter and Hannah just had a moment. Best friends coming soon." A third fan also remarked: "Agent Quentin Carter's secret was he had a girlfriend," and considering the cat's out of the bag, maybe it will be easier for the team to look at him more as a vulnerable being than a condescending robot now.
'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 6 airs on Sundays at 10 pm only on CBS.
