‘NCIS: New Orleans’: Everything to Know About Special Tribute Featured at End of One of Final Episodes

by Emily Morgan

There’s a reason the “NCIS” franchise has been so widely popular for decades: for one, it’s backed with an amazing cast and crew. One former “NCIS: New Orleans” crew member was honored recently at the end of an episode.

“NCIS New Orleans” began airing its final episodes at the end of 2020 after CBS announced the show’s cancellation. To wrap up the series for good, the show concluded the story of Agent Dwayne Pride (played by Scott Bakula) and the rest of his team. However, the show also made sure to pay homage to an exceptional crew member.

According to her IMDb profile, Marta Goldstein was the script supervisor on “NCIS New Orleans” for five years. During her time on the show, she worked on 81 episodes of the popular CBS crime drama.

At the end of “One of Our Own,” season seven, episode three, the show displayed a title card paying tribute to Goldstein. The card said: “In loving memory of Marta Goldstein.”

“NCIS New Orleans” acted as the second spin-off to be created, following “NCIS Los Angeles” and the original “NCIS.”

‘NCIS New Orleans’ Showrunner Opens up About Potential Crossover

The series started in 2014 and had seven seasons before CBS canceled it earlier this year. The final episode aired last month, and in its place, there will be “NCIS Hawaii,” which will premiere later this year.

During a recent interview about the show’s final season, producer Jan Nash and showrunner Christopher Silber teased a potential crossover with “NCIS Hawaii.”

“Never say never,” Silber said about combining universes. “I’ll be a hundred percent honest with you. We are happy for all crossovers. It’s fun.”

As for crossovers, the show has a history of using them. The franchise had featured several crossover events in the past. Fans will recalls that team leader Leroy Gibbs (Mark Harmon) caught up with Pride in 2018’s season five premiere, “See You Soon.”

The series has also crossed over with several other shows outside of the “NCIS” universe. “NCIS” is a spin-off from the original series “JAG.”

Additionally, several “NCIS” characters have also appeared in other shows like “Hawaii Five-0” and “Scorpion.” Some fans have even theorized that “NCIS” could send its new cast to the North Pacific for a possible “Hawaii Five-0” reunion.

Silber also indicated there’s no reason viewers shouldn’t expect the cast of “NCIS” to make appearances in “NCIS: Hawaii.”

“NCIS: Hawaii” will air on Monday nights at 10 p.m. ET right after season 19 of “NCIS” at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
