It’s Halloween in New Orleans. So of course the team was expecting a bit of theatrics during this time of year but in a place where voodoo practices is considered a normal everyday occurrence – no one could have foreseen an actual case involving fangs and creatures of the night as being anything close to realistic. But on tonight’s episode of NCIS: New Orleans, the usual looks possible when the body of a Naval Staff Judge Advocate was found in a cemetery suffering from severe blood loss with, dum dum dummm, two puncture wounds to the neck.
Judge Herman was alive when she was found and only later died from her wounds but make no mistake – no one seriously believes her killer was anything other than human. And this is in spite of her last words being the devil did that to her. Loretta’s autopsy showed their victim was drugged for the most part which explains her loopiness and it’s a good thing too. Although the two puncture wounds were merely superficial; their victim appeared to be short one kidney.
Her killer had stolen her kidney before he let her bleed out. And it had to be intentional because what skilled surgeon can remove a kidney with no little problem but hold off on stitching the patient back up again.
Thankfully, though, the team managed to retrace their victim’s steps. However the case got even odder from there. Their victim went to an abandon building that looks like it used to be a voodoo shop. And when Christopher and Meredith went in to investigate – they found another body. This time the victim was found in a freezer.
The second victim only had one connection to the judge and that’s they’ve both served on a rape case. He was a juror and Judge Herman was the one presiding. The case itself was compelling. So eventually the court had no other choice than to rule against Chief Petty Officer John Neville. But now two people from the trial are dead and the assault victim from the case, Denise Murdock, hasn’t been seen in the last two days.
So that really leaves only on suspect – Neville. He got paroled three months ago and to this day he claims Denise lied and the cops set him up.
He refuses to accept any blame and with Denise missing – the team just didn’t have time to wait for him to mess up. They had to move fast and amazingly Sebastian, the weird kid in the coroner’s office, was able to help with this. You see he had caught a pattern with the two victims they had so far.
The first, the judge, was staged to look like Dracula’s first victim. And as for the second victim, he was given Judge Herman’s kidney and received electric shock post-mortem. Almost as if someone wanted to create their very own Frankenstein. So they looked into Neville’s past. And Neville loved the old horror tales. The true scary ones.
He was fascinated by Dracula and Frankenstein. But there was a third tale he loved. It was one of Edgar Allan Poe’s and involved burying someone alive.
The team immediately ransacked Neville’s home. They looked into all the walls but while they found the knife he had used on Judge Herman – they didn’t find Denise. They did on the other hand come across her abandoned car. It was left by the side of the road and there was a fair amount of blood inside. Yet even the blood was a mystery. DNA testing showed it came from Neville. However he didn’t have a mark on him.
Because of medical reason, Neville had to take samples of his blood. And someone could have easily stolen those vials. For instance, how about his son. Although Jessie appears dimwitted, he was the only one that had access to vials of his father’s blood.
Plus there’s no love lost between father and son. The elder Neville treated Jessie like an annoyance at the best of times. During the worst of times, he abused his son. Which explains the Dissociative Identity Disorder.
The disease causes the victim to create a second identity. Often the victim isn’t even aware of the second person. And the second person likes to keep it that way. They’re created to protect the original and that’s what Jesse’s did when his father started to abuse him.
Jessie had passed the lie detector test the first time around but after they suspected him of suffering from D.I.D – they made sure the second personality was forced to come out and answer some questions. And Mr. Hyde was a sight to see.
He hurt so many people in order to get his father thrown back in jail. And it’s nothing new for him. Jesse’s other personality was the one that had attacked Denise all those years ago. Then he framed Jesse’s father for it hoping the other man would stay in prison.
But when Neville got out, Hyde wanted to make sure the next time the other man went to prison would be his last. Hence the murders. Yet once he was discovered by the NCIS team – he quickly made a deal. A psychiatric hospital for Jessie and in return he would tell Pride where Denise was. That is if she’s still alive.
And, thankfully, she was! Though how she’s going to be after this is really up in the air at this point!
