NCIS: New Orleans and NCIS team up for another blockbuster crossover episode Tuesday, with the action taking place amid the hustle and bustle of Mardi Gras and a special visit from Grammy nominee Maren Morris, who will perform “My Church.”
But there’s much more going on than music, of course; in the first half of “Pandora’s Box,” Gibbs’ (Mark Harmon) NCIS team finds that a Homeland Security “theoretical terror playbook,” which plays out how personnel would respond in attack scenarios, has been swiped. When they learn it has landed in New Orleans, Agents McGee (Sean Murray) and Torres (Wilmer Valderrama) are sent to the Big Easy to investigate.

What’s coming up: Although Pride and his NCIS team successfully stopped a DHS mole from attacking the NOLA port at the end of last season, the fact that his team was infiltrated will bring the FBI down from D.C. to review Pride’s entire operation and cause one of the NCIS agents to leave.
A guest star that will surprise you is… Vanessa Ferlito will join the show as a series regular and play a FBI agent sent down from D.C. to both review and work with Pride’s NCIS team. In the second episode, Tom Arnold will guest star as a friend from Pride’s past who can’t help but cause Pride problems whenever he reappears.
The strangest research we’ve done for an episode is… Actually, after all of the Naval, terrorist, hacker, and espionage research we’ve done, we’re convinced that CIA, NSA, and DOJ are all constantly monitoring every Internet search we do now!
