    Until the next episode where they again pull a crossover like they did with SVU and the Chicago PD crew for years.

    If we keep crossing over with Benson, are we saying Organized Crime can't stand on its own?

    Considering who died and that it takes place in NYC, Benson kind of has to be in it. But so far she's had nothing to do with the main plot.

    I really hope this is a fucking joke... :wtf:

    This is L&O, for crying out loud. It's always been about the prosecution! Defense attorneys in this universe are supposed to be jerks, that's the whole point! :lol:

    That said, if they get Alex Kingston and/or Jeri Ryan to return, I'd be OK with that. :shrug:

    It'll be about lawyers who sit there quietly and say nothing to their clients while Goren spends 10 minutes coaxing a confession out of them. :guffaw:

    At some point, Stephen Amell said he considered both Arrow and The Flash to be one show. I feel that may be true about SVU and OC - they are so intertwined at this point, although in this case mostly because of the relationship between the two leads.

    At this point, NBC might as well spin-off it's own Dick Wolf broadcast network.

    At the rate they're going, it'll be more like Law & Order: Olivia. :lol:

    (srsly, has there been ONE frickin' episode of OC without Benson in it?)

    I'm honestly surprised that there isn't a Dick Wolf Universe channel on, like, Pluto TV or something like that. There are about 1,230 episodes across the Law & Order franchise, and another 450 episodes if you wrap in the four Chicago series, which are canonically in the Law & Order universe. (And another 40-some if you include the FBI series that airs on CBS, which is also in that universe, since Chicago PD's Hailey Upton spent several episodes on FBI.) That's a lot of programming, right there; it would take a while before they'd be going into repeats.

    Not yet. Since there are only four episodes left, it'll be funny to see if they actually have her in it for the entire run. Given how abysmally the show is performing, ratings-wise, I'm sure they promote her appearances so strongly just to try and goose the numbers.

    I do like OC, but really can’t say I buy Dylan McDermott as a convincing mobster.

    SVU hasn't been doing the best lately either. Numbers seemed similar.

    The ratings are very similar. Only the Chicago franchise does better. NBC is still way behind in the ratings compared to CBS.

    The franchise has simply relied too much on Benson in the past few years to its own detriment.

    OC is a mess in its own right. There are so many minor characters and storylines that its hard to keep track. If Stabler is supposed to be the draw, cut back the number of detectives and leave him with his partner and the computer girl and cut out the story about Dylan McDermott's child and his weird relationship with ex-wife. Streamline it. It also doesn't help that a detective whose career was hanging by a thread was somehow sent to Italy on a cultural exchange.

    At the rate Law & Order is going, we're going to find out that Wheatley is the mastermind behind Borgia's death, William Lewis used to work for Wheatley, and Nicole Wallace is Wheatley's half-sister.

    Agreed. I'm wondering how they'll move forward at this rate.

    Definitely. And hopefully that'll be done with story wise by ep 8.

    Organized Crime has been renewed for a second season. Per Dick Wolf, it will be a 24-episode run, as opposed to this season's eight-episode count.

    Stabler's teaming up with Jack Bauer?

    For the Defense at 8, SVU at 9, OC at 10. It's been announced.
