'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 6 Episode 5 likely to see Lasalle struggle to remain stable enough to find his brother's killers
In a behind-the-scenes video, actor Scott Bakula, who plays Dwayne Pride on the show, said that post-Cade’s death, “Thing really start to spin out of control, and we’re off for a big dramatic change in our world here”
The fourth episode of ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ Season 6, 'Overlooked' deals with loss. The episode that forked into two storylines followed Christopher Lasalle’s (played by Lucas Black) hunt for his brother Cade.
Cade went missing after trying to help his stepson, who started selling drugs. In the third episode, we saw Lasalle learned how his brother left his wife and stepson Will at a motel fearing for their safety after Will had got involved with a group of drug smugglers.
In Mobile, Alabama, teaming up with Sebastian, Lasalle found a homeless drunk man named Zeke using Cade’s credit card. Upon questioning him, they learn Zeke found his wallet in one of the places where he pitched his tent.
As they reached the spot, they found the wallet that Zeke had left behind. But that wasn’t all. After a search in the area, they also found a body that was too damaged to be identified. Ultimately, the body turned out to be Cade’s after they examined his dental records.
Lasalle was inconsolable at the thought of his brother dying. While waiting for the body to be identified, he recounted a story to Pride about how when he was seven, he crashed his father’s lawnmower. It was Cade who then came to his aid and took the blame; and some beating.
Earlier in the show’s run, we learned how Cade went from being an all-state quarterback, honor roll and popular guy to being mentally unstable, and even homeless for a while. Despite his downfall, it is more than apparent that Lasalle loved his older brother dearly.
It is only likely that in the next episode, he would have to deal with this loss. But will his grief stop him from being able to solve the case of Cade’s murder, a case that still remains open? While Lasalle is a strong man, the guilt of not keeping in touch with his now-dead brother will likely weigh on him.
In a behind-the-scenes video for ‘NCIS: New Orleans’, actor Scott Bakula, who plays Dwayne Pride on the show, said post-Cade’s death, “Things really start to spin out of control, and we’re off for a big dramatic change in our world here.”
Does this imply that Lasalle might just lose control and begin to unravel as he continues to on a wild goose chase for his brother’s killers? It looks exactly like that for now.
The next episode of 'NCIS: New Orleans' will air on Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
