It's terrible, but we've all done it: ghosted a former flame when the thought of straight-up saying "I'm just not that into you" feels like too much to bear.

NCIS: New Orleans newest agent has a dark secret

In NCIS: New Orleans' episode "One Good Man," we see the team getting unorthodox training after a Navy SEAL candidate is found murdered. But we'll also learn that special agents are just like us, when LaSalle (Lucas Black) is confronted by a woman he's been avoiding.

Both of them mask their funky feelings of rage, rejection and shame underneath a smooth Southern veneer, but things might get really real after LaSalle learns that his ex has more on her mind than confronting him. In this exclusive clip, LaSalle discovers that she's got a secret. And whatever it is, it's a bundle of surprise that catches the usually unflappable agent off-guard.

NCIS: New Orleans airs Tuesdays at 10/9c on CBS.
