NCIS New Orleans season 3 episode 17 is set to feature a manhunt for a dangerous criminal. Can Pride and his team track him down before anyone else gets hurt?
March 14 will feature back-to-back episodes of NCIS New Orleans. It starts with NCIS New Orleans season 3 episode 17 Swift, Silent, Deadly at 9:00 p.m. Episode 18 Slay the Dragon follows right after at 10 p.m.
Carter Matt hints at the chances of seeing a number of worthy guest stars on both episodes together with several big events. Thus, CM is hopeful the evening will help push the show’s ratings up.
NCIS New Orleans Season 3 Episode 17 Synopsis
The synopsis for the first hour of NCIS New Orleans reveals a significant threat to the city. Hence, Special Agent Dwayne Pride (Scott Bakula) and his team must act fast to make sure no else falls as collateral damage from the rampage.
“A highly credentialed and skilled special ops marine sends Pride and the NCIS team on a city-wide manhunt after he assaults six men in a bar.”
The second hour of the back-to-back event focuses on FBI Special Agent Tammy Gregorio (Vanessa Ferlito). Based on the synopsis for Slay the Dragon, it appears a reunion with her ex-husband Ethan McKinley (Ed Quinn) is about to take place. However, it will not be a happy one for the estranged couple.
Previously, Ethan disappeared after reportedly stealing money from Katrina relief funds. This time around, he might have a connection to the murder of a crime boss’ son. Given the circumstances, it is uncertain if Ethan’s return would give Tammy the closure she desires or if it will only add to her burdens.
NCIS New Orleans Cancellation or Renewal?
The fate of NCIS New Orleans remains unknown to date, as CBS has yet to make an announcement. Of late, season three ratings of the procedural drama series averages 9.61 million viewers with a 1.22 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Sadly, these figures translate to a drop of 26 percent in viewership numbers and 30 percent in demo rating from the previous season.
Then again, Telly Vulture of TV Series Finale seems confident NCIS New Orleans season 4 is coming. As it pointed out, the numbers are still quite good despite the shift to a 10 p.m. time slot. Moreover, the appeal of a profitable syndication package down the road would likely be hard for the network to pass up.
