That quote from her abductor in the fist episode of the season about how she would eventually call out 'his' name when he was attacking her and then her heartfelt speech to that bad cop in the most recent episode beg to differ.
That could be because she views Stabler as the type of cop who could come to her rescue. She doesn't "love" him so much as she views him as almost like a personal saviour.
Agreed. And as I said, she probably did have a crush on him. If Stabler had not been married, who knows what could have happened? But Liv is not a homewrecker and she knows enough to stay away from married guys. Notice how she didn't go after Stabler even when he and his wife were separated?

Re: Goodbye, Det. Munch

They didn't devote much of the episode to Munch, but what else is new? At least they left it open for him to make a guest appearance if Richard Belzer wants to. It was nice to see Munch's old Homicide comrade Detective Meldrick Lewis (Clark Johnson) at his send off. I didn't like that they only credited him as 'party guest' instead of Meldrick Lewis.

I didn't watch the episode, but the "party guest" was probably so they didn't need to pay the writers of Homicide for using their character.

I was disappointed that so little of the episode dealt with Munch's retirement.

I was happy that it didn't fall into the cliche's of him being killed off, or captured, or any one of the million ways that Law & Order has written out characters.

It was quiet, it was subtle, and it fit his character.

I have no problem with how the character left the show, just the fact that it only took 2 minutes of screen time.

Based on what they did with Andre Braugher, maybe it wasn't Lewis at all, just someone who looks and sounds just like him.

Re: Goodbye, Det. Munch

Sending him to the DA's office was a good move so we can see him a few times a season. I thought it was a really good episode over all.

It's what they did with Jerry Orbach, but unfortunately he passed away (and L&O:TBJ was cancelled anyway).

I see that Munch's brother and both of his ex-wives were in the crowd as well. Played by, AFAIK, the same actors who played them in H:LOTS. Were any of them credited by name?

Carol Kane has appeared on L&O as Munch's wife, so no surprise she'd show again.

Re: Goodbye, Det. Munch

^^ I'm not sure. I was only looking out for Clark Johnson's name. Did Munch have more than one brother? The brother that was on this episode was a different actor than the one I remember from Homicide. The episode when they discovered that Crosetti had killed himself, Munch went to his mortician brother to get a deal on a casket.

Carol Kane was on L&O as Gwen? I didn't know that. Which episode was it?
