Although many fans won't be very happy about the decision, Shalita Grant recently said goodbye from the show, and it seems to be for good.
Sonja Percy is now saying goodbye to the fans on NCIS: New Orleans and a lot of the viewers took it the hard way as they expressed their grief on Twitter.
According to Pop Culture, in the latest episode, Percy and LaSalle went undercover to a high-stakes, underground poker game after the organizer targeted players with access to a naval research laboratory.
This would be the last team mission between Percy and LaSalle before Grant's exit of the series, as she was seen interviewing for a job with the FBI in the previous episode.
In the beginning, other members of the team asked Percy if she had accepted the job, but Sonja later announced she didn't
Percy got herself in 'a sticky situation' when she volunteered to go undercover while still identifying herself as an NCIS agent in order to lure a killer to the poker game.
After a string of events leading to the closing of the case, Percy revealed that she had changed her mind and officially decided to accept the job offered by the FBI.
Percy finally said her last goodbye to the rest of the team, which also included a romantic moment between Grant’s character and Black’s.
The fans weren't too happy after watching the emotional scene and expressed their sadness on Twitter, with some of them sending their love and support to Grant.
Grant's manager Didi Rea told Variety in January that her exit was because they think it's time for a change, that they will be moving on to "the next great thing."
Although Variety shared a story about the drama’s showrunner, Brad Kern, allegedly making racially insensitive remarks and engaging in sexual harassment, most sources claimed it to be false.
