'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 6 Episode 7: LaSalle's absence from show has fans 'mourning', not to watch an episode
Fans shared their sentiments on social media about how they are still trying to cope in the absence of a character who has impressed and thrilled us for six strong seasons now.
This article contains spoilers for Season 6, Episode 7.
It has been a full week since 'NCIS: New Orleans' agent Christopher LaSalle died in a shooting while investigating his younger brother Cade's death and fans are still reeling under the pain of watching their favorite character on the show depart.
But while the tragic accident did take the character played by Lucas Black away from us, fans are mourning through their own subtle rebellion of sorts by refraining from watching tonight's episode 7 of season 6.
According to the official synopsis of the latest episode provided by CBS, "After a natural gas explosion at a movie theater, the NCIS team discovers the gas company has been hacked and more explosions could be triggered."
The said explosions arrive later in the episode, and one of them even ends up leaving agent Hanna Khoury injured while she tried escorting a senior person out of the venue they were evacuating. But while we are glad Hanna is okay and still kicking a** the way she does so brilliantly, there's no overlooking the loss of LaSalle - something that our team is undergoing too.
Taking to Twitter, fans shared their sentiments about how they are still trying to cope in the absence of a character that has impressed and thrilled us for six strong seasons now. One of them tweeted: "I am still recovering from NCIS New Orleans and Lasalle so I have been out of it for a couple of days!"
Another fan got a lot more emotional as they expressed how their mother is staying away from tuning in to the new episode, in 'mourning.' They wrote: "First night since it started we are not watching NCIS: New Orleans. Mom is mourning a fictional character Christopher LaSalle, and she has never done that before. He was the main reason we watched. Need to find out how to get a signed picture for her, me too."
'NCIS: NEw Orleans' season 6 airs on Tuesdays at 10 pm only on CBS.
