'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 7 Episode 11: Will Carter leave Hannah after 18 months? Fans celebrate new ship
'Since we never got to see #Persalle explore their "thing", will we at least get to see Q & Hannah explore theirs before the end?!?' tweeted a fan
"I’m surprised by how much I’m enjoying #NCISNOLA’s new (about to happen?) couple. Bring on more scenes like that last one!" tweeted a fan after tonight's, that is March 28's episode of 'NCIS: New Orleans'. With this being the abruptly announced final season of the show, both anticipation and expectations build up surrounding what big showdown is to come in the final arc of the show. Packed with action as ever, the series is now pulling out all of the big guns when it comes to romance and relationships, especially with Agents Hannah Khoury (Necar Zadegan) and Quentin Carter (Charles Michael Davis) being so in tune with each other. But will this end as smoothly as it's going?
According to the official synopsis of Season 7's Episode 11 'Stashed', “Sebastian’s life is in danger when a criminal he put behind bars escapes police custody; Carter is tasked with keeping Sebastian in protective custody; Carter and Hannah’s flirtation is fun gossip fodder for Tammy and Sebastian.” That end bit of the synopsis is packing all the meaty, juicy substance that has left fans tantalized after this new episode. The reason? While the entire team went to Pride's pub to celebrate saving Sebastian's life, Khoury and Carter were off having a private little rendezvous of their own.
The two randomly decided, standing perfectly clouded away in dark silhouettes against heavy rain, that they could go someplace else and zhush up their evening a little bit. Throughout the episode, Tammy (Vanessa Ferlito) and Sebastian (Rob Kerkovich) busy themselves in spotting the flirting game through body languages and profiling Carter, so this will be more thrilling for the characters even, as now everybody including Dr Loretta Wade (CCH Pounder) and finally Pride (Scott Bakula) seems to know.
But the happy occasion is also marred by Carter's exceptionally calculated stints on the job, with him never serving at one posting longer than 18 months. Fans are starting to think, "Looks like Carter found his reason not to bail in 18 months," based on the blushed up ending that was this episode, but if not, is heartbreak in store for Khoury? Badass as she might be, viewers have known Khoury's personal life's trials and tribulations and for once would love for 'NCIS: NOLA' to give the woman a break. Their worst fear? A repeat of Perselle — the ship name for Christopher LaSalle and Sonja Percy — whose love story remained unfinished after the former died in the line of duty.

It’s not fair because NCIS New Orleans is now canceled we won’t get to see Hannah and Carter’s new romance grow— Brianna Dean (@briannagillian1) March 29, 2021
I may be in the minority but I'm not a fan of yet another workplace flirtation/romance. It's like every series has to go there.— Joseph Rainey (@JoeRaineyPhoto) March 29, 2021
"Since we never got to see #Persalle explore their "thing", will we at least get to see Q & Hannah explore theirs before the end?!?" tweeted a fan hopefully. Another laughed at how "Everybody knows that Hannah and Carter likes each other, Pride had to hear it from Loretta." Fiercely protective that the fandom is of Khoury, the show will never be forgiven if this ends in another heartbreak for her. Other fans are just upset that the show would introduce the romance this late thus not allowing us the chance to watch it 'grow'. "It’s not fair because NCIS New Orleans is now canceled we won’t get to see Hannah and Carter’s new romance grow," tweeted a fan. Another however noted: "I may be in the minority but I'm not a fan of yet another workplace flirtation/romance. It's like every series has to go there."
'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 7 airs on Sundays at 10 pm only on CBS.
