When will ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ Season 7 Episode 4 air? Pride may have found a way to bring down the dirty cops

Spoilers for ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ Season 7 Episode 4
It’s been two weeks since ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ has aired on TV and fans are missing their favorites — Scott Bakula, Rob Kerkovich, CCH Pounder, Daryl Mitchell, Vanessa Ferlito, Necar Zadegan and Charles Michael Davis together on screen. But fans won’t have to wait much longer to hear the intro theme, ‘Boom Boom’ performed by Big Head Todd and the Monsters, because ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ is scheduled to be back on Sunday, December 12, for Episode 4 of Season 7.
Episode 3 of ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ saw an NOPD officer murdered. At the mayor’s behest, Pride (Scott Bakula) and the NCIS team take on a group of dirty cops when they discover that the victim was also a key witness in multiple excessive force cases.
But as is expected, investigating dirty cops is not an easy business. All their leads were met with dead ends. There was no one alive that could corroborate their suspicions. And even when they finally found one — the man who had allegedly shot the cop — they arrived at the scene too late. His former partner, as well as a senior cop (both of whom had similar complaints against them), had already shot and killed him.
They cited the man being armed (and threatening to attack them) as their reason. But Pride had had enough by then. He told the cops that he was officially going to make it his business to bring them to justice. It did not matter if he had to tread on some police toes in the process. The episode ended with the Mayor giving Pride her full support. So, what is coming up next?
Titled, ‘We All Fall’, the synopsis for Episode 4 reads: “As the NCIS team continue to investigate the murder of an officer who was about to whistleblow on police misconduct within NOPD, Pride must get creative in order to finally get rid of the dirty cops. Also, the Mayor asks Pride to join her new task force to address systemic issues plaguing their city and, as Covid continues to overwhelm the system, Wade finally addresses the toll it’s taken on her.”
This season has really put Dr Loreta Wade (CCH Pounder) at the forefront. Her character, while dealing with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, has been the rock that everyone seems to rely on. It is but natural that it would take a toll on her. We, for sure, are glad that the show is giving Dr Wade her due.
In a promo video for the episode, we see Dr Wade and her son CJ having an argument about him attending a Black Lives Matter protest. While the teenager seems hell-bent on attending the protest, having been responsible for organizing it, Dr Wade forbids him on account of the ongoing pandemic.
The show has so far made a valiant effort to bring both these issues into the spotlight and examining one juxtaposed with another is obviously the next step. As always, it is Dr Wade’s storylines that have the most complex issues going for them.
Another promo for the episode sees the team discussing how to move forward with the case against the dirty cops. As mentioned earlier, they seemed to be meeting dead ends over and over again. But at the very end of the promo, Pride receives a message, following which he says that he may have an idea. What this idea may be, is up for speculation. But knowing Pride, and just how connected he is, it is likely that he would bring out the big guns.
'NCIS: New Orleans' airs on Sundays at 9 pm ET on CBS. But this week, as per reports, the show will likely air at a different time — 10 pm ET. Some reports speculate that the timing shake-up has been caused by the scheduling of NFL games on CBS.
