Assassin’s mission is personal
NCIS: New Orleans, Ten, Saturday at 8.30pm
IN THE season five premiere, NCIS Special Agent Christopher LaSalle (Lucas Black, pictured) frantically knocks at the door of Pride’s bar. Breaking in, he finds Pride’s near lifeless body.
Calling an ambulance and back-up, LaSalle notices Amelia Parsons fleeing the scene and gives chase. Though he manages to shoot her, Amelia escapes.
While Pride fights for his life in the ICU, the team scours the city for the hit woman who attempted to assassinate him.
NCIS’s Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs puts in a guest appearance via a video conference with LaSalle.
Gibbs reveals that Parson was a CIA contractor, and her husband was killed in a fight with Pride.
As such, Amelia’s quest to bring down Pride is personal, not professional.
