Spoilers for ‘NCIS: New Orleans' Season 7 Episode 10
‘NCIS: New Orleans’ Season 7 Episode 9, titled ‘Into Thin Air”, which aired on Sunday, February 21 was the first episode this season that was not a two-part story. The episode saw Special Agent Dwayne Pride (Scott Bakula) and the team on the hunt for a kidnapped 14-year-old. They discovered that her father, who was soon to have custody of her, was a radical survivalist living off the grid.
The episode saw something brewing between special agents Hanna Khoury (Necar Zadegan) and Quentin Carter (Charles Michael Davis) when the two reflected on how she helped him overcome deep-rooted family issues and treatment between him and his mother. The beginning of the episode sees Carter thank Khoury for helping him see the light, and she joked by pulling out her phone and asking him to repeat what he said so she can have video proof of it.
What comes next in ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ Season 7 Episode 10?
Titled ‘Homeward Bound’, the official synopsis of ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ Season 7 Episode 10 reads: “When a Petty Officer is shot down by a sniper, Pride and NCIS hunt down the killer, only to find that he may not be acting alone. Also, Rita (Chelsea Field) tells Pride that she has been offered a compelling job… in Kansas City.”
In one promo video for the episode, we see that the shooting took place during a paintball game, providing perfect cover for this crime. Special Agent Tammy Gregorio (Vanessa Ferlito) explains to Pride that the others did not suspect anything and that it was only after the game was over and the Petty Officer did not get up was when they realized something was wrong. From the bullet’s trajectory, they figured that the shooter was around five hundred yards away at an elevated position.
While the bullet was that common for hunting, they soon realized that it was not a stray shot that accidentally hit the Petty Officer. Gregorio observed that the one place anyone could have shot him from was a bridge far away and given how difficult the shot was, they realized that the shooter had to have extensive training. This was definitely murder.
A second promo for the episode sees Khoury briefing Pride about the Petty Officer’s history. Given his rank and position, it seemed unlikely at best that he was killed for state secrets. When Pride suggests this may have been personal, Carter objects. His history suggested that this was a man who was unlikely to have enemies. Je was too much of a good guy. Thus far, it looks unlikely that the team has any kind of head start in this case.
The promos, however, did not show anything about Carter and Khoury’s flirtatious tryst turning into something more. Hopefully, the episode will see more of that!
When will ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ Season 7 Episode 10 air?
‘Homeward Bound’, written by Katherine Beattie and Jack Maron, and directed by Hart Bochner will air on Sunday, February 28, from 10 to 11 pm ET/PT on CBS Television Network.
