What Happened on NCIS: New Orleans Last Night?
Christopher LaSalle’s father dies of a heart attack, naming him executor of the estate. His father’s estate is in Alabama, and now LaSalle is in a fix.
There is a murder that takes place outside Delilah’s Nightclub. Theo, who was adopted by the Hill family (and own Delilah’s Nightclub), was found floating in the lake waters with gunshot wounds.
Theo was found with drugs on his body. It was later found out that he was investigating drug dealers.
While the detectives get busy with the case at hand, LaSalle avoids calls from home.
He then gets a call from his family telling him there was an emergency in Alabama. He had no idea his father had a heart condition.
While LaSalle tries to figure things out about his father’s funeral, he runs into Rachel, whom he hasn’t seen since graduation. She tells him that she’s been working with his father for two years. Rachel also says that since he was named executor of the estate, she’s looking forward to working with him, too.
LaSalle is shocked to hear this news. Being named head of LaSalle Enterprises makes him the boss now!
However, he has a job and a life already. If he decides to run his father’s business, that means he has to leave his life in New Orleans!
In the episode, Rachel hunts LaSalle down and pays him a visit at the station. But he feels that she didn’t need to follow him.
LaSalle is going to stay in New Orleans, where he belongs and is sure he’s not moving to Alabama. He’s decided if he has to run his family business, he’s going to do it from New Orleans.
