Spoilers for 'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 7 Episode 6 'Operation Drano, Part II'

Last week, 'NCIS: New Orleans' was back from its winter break with a brand new episode of Season 7. Titled 'Operation Drano, Part I', the episode saw the NCIS team investigate a suspicious death. The missing key piece of evidence was a top-secret, high-tech battery. The team would soon realize that there could be deadly consequences if it falls into the wrong hands. 

The episode also saw Rita Devereaux (Chelsea Field), New Orleans U.S. District Attorney and the girlfriend of Special Agent Dwayne Pride (Scott Bakula) passionately fighting for justice for the African American community while protesting the system of cash bail. Rita wasn't the only one who felt passionately about the cause. In the episode, the Mayor put together a commission to deal with the problems within the city. The commission was to handle systemic racism, homelessness, and other problems as well.

Pride was a part of this commission. A member of the commission, Allie Briggs (Hannah Hodson) seemed just as passionate about fighting against social injustice. She was, in fact, so radical that she could not get behind Pride’s bipartisanship and consequently left.

The main story of the episode saw the team figure out that Todd VonRoenn’s death was not an accident – it was murder. They figured out that VonRoenn had grabbed a high-tech battery that the Navy was developing to one day use this power in their weapons. The investigation led them to Jorge Perez (Diego Wallraff), the owner of a private marina. 

When Khoury (Necar Zadegan) and Carter (Charles Michael Davis) followed Perez to a boating yard, they found that he had been building a submarine. Khoury and Carter found Perez’s Ukrainian friend right as he was about to burn down the boatyard. He was trying to hide evidence – shelving for torpedoes.

What will happen next in Season 7 Episode 6?

As per the official synopsis of ‘Operation Drano, Part II’, when a torpedo hits a fishing trawler at sea, the entire Gulf Coast is in jeopardy as Pride and 'NCIS' race to find the submarine before it can strike again. This means that Perez had already armed his submarine with weapons. Things are about to get really high stakes. Will any of the 'NCIS' members find themselves in danger?

Ever since the show killed Lucas Black’s character LaSalle in Season 6, the threat of that happening again seems to always hang in the air. Earlier in this season, we have seen 'NCIS' members already experience near-fatal episodes. One also hopes that Allie makes an appearance on this episode as well. And hopefully, she and Pride can find a middle ground.

When will Season 7 Episode 6 air?

'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 7 returns with Episode 6 on Sunday, January 10, but not at its usual 9 pm time slot. Instead, the episode titled 'Operation Drano, Part II' will at a special time, 10:00-11:00 pm ET/PT, on the CBS Television Network.
