Careful What You Wish For is the fourteenth episode of the first season of the police procedural series NCIS: New Orleans which was aired on February 10, 2015.

Summary Edit

After an NCIS agent is killed during a security detail for the Vice Chief of Naval Operations, the team must determine if this was an assassination attempt or if someone is targeting one of their own. Meanwhile, Agent Brody is placed under investigation and her mysterious past is reevaluated.[1]


  • We learn about Brody's time on the USS Moultrie, particularly the incident where she failed to stop a Petty Officer with an IED.
  • Brody served on the Moultrie at least on 2nd September 2007. This makes her around a ten year veteran of NCIS.


Patton Plame: Oh, look out! Mr.Lund has himself a grassy knoll!
Sebastian: All right, let's don't start with me, "€œDouble P".
Patton Plame: Oh, no, it's Triple P now. The third œP€ is for perfection.
Sebastian: We've been over this, okay? You cannot give yourself a nickname.
Pride: And here's where we shut the screen off. Good-bye, Loretta.
Loretta: Bye, Dwayne.
