In the least surprising television development of the week, NCIS: New Orleans Season 1 Episode 2 kicked off with a scene inside a jazz club.
Viewers watched as a young lieutenant took in some local music, though but he seemed clearly ill and began stumbling around before ending up outside.
He staggered to the street and then got killed by a cab, prompting Agent Pride and his team to be called in because the victim was Navy Lt. Louis Collier, an office on leave.
"Why did the sailor cross the road?" asked Pride, as Loretta is unable to determine the officer's state at the scene. Aside, you know, from the fact that he was dead.
