The NCIS: New Orleans cast is going to feature a new character in Lynette Carter during the Sunday night episode.

The new episode of the NCIS spin-off is called Leda And The Swan, Part 1, and it serves as Season 7, Episode 7 of the drama.

There is a lot going on in the new episode of the show, which is why it has been broken down into two parts.

A full synopsis for the episode was released by CBS and it reads as follows:

“When a Navy therapist with a high level of security clearance is murdered, Pride and the team discover that she was working around the system to get justice for victims of sexual assault.

Also, Carter’s mother confronts him when he refuses to talk to the FBI for a background check on her behalf, and Sebastian starts to form a bond with a key witness who was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, on NCIS: NEW ORLEANS.”

As you can see by the episode synopsis, the character of Lynette Carter has an important relationship with one of the other main characters.

Special Agent Quentin Carter, who is played by actor Charles Michael Davis on NCIS: NOLA, gets to have a very personal story told during the episode that will debut on January 17.

Carter is the character that was brought on to the show when Agent Christopher LaSalle was killed while on duty.
