Tom Arnold guest stars on NCIS: New Orleans this week, playing a pal of Special Agent Dwayne Pride (Scott Bakula.) As a former Navy guy (he once was an intelligence analyst ), Arnold's character Elvis Bertrand has a connection to Pride that's formed on a solid bond.

NCIS: New Orleans newest agent has a dark secret

Their bond is at a real rocky point though, due to the significant fact that Elvis is the lead suspect in a multiple homicide case. Pride is being a good friend for standing by Elvis, and enduring the understandable backlash he gets as a result. Elvis, however, isn't making Pride's decision easy at all as you'll see in the clip above. What would you do if your friend who's a homicide suspect was packing heat in a nightclub? Yeesh. Australian singer Grace Sewell also guest stars.

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