Sad news y'all: everybody's favorite slightly fitful forensic scientist Sebastian Lund (Rob Kerkovich) gets kidnapped in this week's NCIS: New Orleans and, as you might imagine, there's a furious hunt in progress to find him.

Naturally, Pride (Scott Bakula) is doing everything he can to track down his pal and the person(s) responsible for snatching him; one stop on that journey includes talking with his Mom Sylvia, with whom he was dining at a restaurant when the grab occurred.

NCIS: New Orleans newest agent has a dark secret

Mama Lund is played by the always-fabulous Wendie Malick -- in this turn an anxiety-racked mess who does a wonderful job of channeling her crisis state into a meandering rant about herself. Poor thing - she's just having a totally understandable freak out. Check it out in the clip!

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

(Full disclosure: is owned by CBS.)
