'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 7 Episode 7 Spoilers: Is there a new romance for third wheeler Sebastian?
The previous episode saw both Quentin Carter and Tammy Gregorio slap it to Sebastian's face in as many words that his third-wheeling was not always welcome
It's tough to get a break from your job when you're the leader of an NCIS team, but Dwayne Pride (Scott Bakula) has more than just that to worry about now that he's also heading the committee of lawmakers and politicians to stub racism, White supremacy and other social woes New Orleans is plagued with. In the upcoming episode, although the team investigates the death of a social worker, it is a usually put aside character who grabs our anticipation. The reason? After what seems like eons, Sebastian Lund (Rob Kerkovich) has finally bonded with someone outside of work and romance might be on the menu in Season 7's Episode 7.
Titled 'Leda and the Swan, Part I', the official synopsis given by CBS teases: "When a Navy therapist with a high level of security clearance is murdered, Pride and the team discover that she was working around the system to get justice for victims of sexual assault. Also, Carter's mother confronts him when he refuses to talk to the FBI for a background check on her behalf, and Sebastian starts to form a bond with a key witness who was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic."
The previous Episode 6, 'Operation Drano: Part 2', saw both Quentin Carter (Charles Michael Davis) and Tammy Gregorio (Vanessa Ferlito) slap it to Sebastian's face in as many words that sometimes he third wheels too intensely, in a manner that's not welcome, now that she has a girlfriend she wants to spend time with. Sebastian, although shocked, takes it in good spirits and uses his signature sense of humor to mask his hurt. But the writers want to focus on that lonesome aura a bit longer it seems as Sebastian will be seen to finally communicate outside of work in the next episode. And for all we know, it will tipple off to a romance where he's not the striking third wheel for once.
One can expect the person to introduce Sebastian to his potential love interest will be our in house coroner, Dr Loretta Wade (C C H Pounder), whom Sebastian constantly, persistently clings on to. And at this point, anything that takes Loretta's mind off the spiral the pandemic is pushing her into is welcome. Here's to a new romance for Sebastian.
'NCIS: New Orleans' airs on Sundays at 9 pm only on CBS.
