'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 7 Episode 12: Is Hannah dead? Pride's illegitimate son is 'another of Sasha’s lies'
Pride and Rita discuss the possibility of him actually having a son too, and while both of them are alright with the fact, fans are not
It was a ride filled with tension on tonight's (April 4) episode of 'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 7. Episode 12, titled 'Once Upon a time' really took us down the memory lane of a young Pride and his several trysts. This episode was supposed to bring back Sasha Broussard, Pride's old enemy, but never in a million years would have fans expected she'd come with an alleged mini-Pride in tow. Add to that the explosion that Hannah Khoury and her budding beau Quentin Carter stood too close to, and now there's a flurry of confusion about whether the two of them are okay – especially Hannah, is she alive? And of course, how legitimate is Pride's son Connor?
According to the official synopsis of the episode, "After a Molotov cocktail is hurled into Pride’s bar, evidence leads him to his old nemesis, Sasha Brousard; Tammy uses her profiling skills on Hannah and Carter with shocking accuracy.” Sasha and Pride had met in 2003 when she fooled everyone with the innocent charitable philanthropist act, including Pride, and tried taking down her family's business empire. While Sasha's own life was in danger this time around, her seventeen-year-old son – who was born shortly after her and Pride's affair and was thus presumed to be his child, is now back for vengeance on his father. Sure, a little bonding time after not knowing about his existence was deemed justified for Pride, but this kid was trying to kill him, so maybe Pride should have taken their chances.
Most importantly, Pride should have maintained distance as fans believe this son could be just Sasha being a manipulative liar again. I’m hoping it’s yet another of Sasha’s lies," wrote a viewer. Another screamed "WE DON'T REALLY KNOW IF CONNOR IS PRIDE'S CHILD! Sasha lies! She may be lying about this." They can't entirely be wrong, no matter how intensely Sasha asserts she kept Connor away from everything to protect him from the threats hounding her life. Pride and Rita discuss the possibility of him actually having a son too, and while both of them are alright with the fact, fans are not.

That's how you end it??— Sarah J. (@sareja86) April 5, 2021
I knew it wasn't going to end in five mins!
You know I hate cliffhangers!!!! 😯
Hannah better not be dead! #NCISNOLA
Luckily, to take the heat away from Pride and Sasha's affair, Khoury and Carter got in trouble. The entire episode dedicated to their flirting and rumba dancing, right at the end, in the hunt and chase to save Sasha's life from her new enemies, the two were caught up in an explosion in very close proximity. And given that Khoury finally seems to have found happiness, fans are convinced the show might cut her arc short.
"That's how you end it?? I knew it wasn't going to end in five mins! You know I hate cliffhangers!!!! Hannah better not be dead!" one fan warned the show. "That was an explosive ending. I hope Hannah Hannah Khoury didn't hurt. I'm worried," tweeted another. One alarmed "That didn’t look very good. Carter and Hannah got hurt in that explosion. Guess we all have to hold our breaths for 2 week to find out is Hannah survives. Pray."
