On Tuesday's episode of NCIS: New Orleans, an investigation hits close to home when Baitfish (John Livingston) murders someone with ties to the NCIS: New Orleans crew in order to send a message to Pride (Scott Bakula).

And, Loretta (CCH Pounder) and Sebastian (Rob Kerkovich) quickly discover that the killer they're hunting is using a type of bullet they've never even seen before.

As the team rallies around Pride in the final episodes of Season 1, they become more determined than ever to track down Baitfish - and learn more about Pride's past with the Broussard Syndicate in the process.

"There's a bond between them that is beyond working colleagues, where you really see that these are real friends," Pounder recently told TVGuide.com. "These people have hung out so long with each other, they know each other beyond the morgue and procedure."
