    Some are speculating that Steve Harris's role as Angela's attorney is going to springboard him over to For the Defense.

    Also, Hargitay's husband plays Trevor Langan, so there's another possibility.

    I'd like to see them bring back Richard Brooks.

    I'm amazed with how SVU handled EO. What we got was a mirror to ep 5 of OC and it was wonderfully done.

    So do you think the non-resolution of season 1 means Wheatley will be involved in one of the three cases next season?

    svu is the only weekly tv show I watch on a weekly basis , as being drip fed a show like that is not something I enjoy.

    I do have a question, is law and order organised crime, all one arc or are the episodes pretty much stand alone ?

    I have the first 8 episodes ready to watch.

    Season 1 of Organized Crime is one 8-episode arc.

    Season 2 will be three 8-episode arcs.

    OC is a good 8 episode arc but it also has some open threads at the end of the season that will probably carry into next season. I found it fun to watch watch week to week with SVU but it's probably even better binged.

    Hargitay makes $500,000 per episode of SVU. She never has to work another day in her life if she doesn't want to.

    He's a liiiittle busy starring on The Rich and the Ruthless.

    That's a good question. We know he'll be involved with the first ep of s2.

    But it's something...

    that he lured Olivia to the hospital where Elliot and Angela were. Was he trying to get them all killed? Was he trying to have it be that Angela finally meets Olivia?

    I don't think it's that complicated.

    Wheatley bribed Det. Morales to pose as a doctor and give Angela a fatal overdose. I don't think Wheatley wanted them ALL killed, just Angela.

    And I'm guessing Morales was responsible for planting the phone in Wheatley's cell. I'm still not sure exactly who Wheatley was TALKING to on that phone, though.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Wheatley wanted Elliot and Olivia at the hospital so they'd witness Angela's death, though. I mean, Wheatley knew Angela kind of had a thing for Elliot...

    Also...

    There goes my theory that the "cops" who stomped Bell's nephew were in Wheatley's employ. :shrug:

    One thing I don't get, though:

    Richie, in prison, arranges for the hit on his father in revenge for Manfredi's death. Why would Richie, a black man, particularly care about a grandfather who was so openly racist?

    Good points. You're probably right on it.

    Yea the Richie thing... exactly. Unless it's a power play?

    I remember now.

    Richie wasn't trying to avenge Manfredi - he was trying to curry favor with the other inmates and protect himself. So he asked for the hit on his father, who was a rival to a 'boss' that some of the other prisoners were working for.

    Richie also didn't believe his father about Manfredi, who was apparently never openly racist towards the grandchildren for some reason. His sister couldn't even convince him Manfredi was a bad guy.

    Wasn't Manfredi seen making racist comments during a TV news broadcast at one point? I guess Richie wasn't watching. :lol:
