    I really can't give two flicks about what is going on OC, which is a shame became Jet & Bell are great characters stuck playing second fiddle to angsty Stabler. And heck even Enterprise Season 3 was better at sticking with its arcs than OC is.

    I wonder what Bell was going to tell Stabler at the end. Didn't want Stabler to be blindsided...by what? The DA's office not retrying Wheatley?

    Speaking of whom:

    I'm now convinced that Wheatley was not in on the plan to frame Eli. That must have been all Angela's doings.

    Angela does say to Dana that "Your father should be able to arrange something" (for Dana to disappear) but that doesn't mean Wheatley knows WHY.

    The kicker was Wheatley's blowup in Barba's office. If he'd been working with Angela the whole time, he wouldn't have done that.

    Also, Wheatley DID originally have Angela poisoned...

    And, for God's sake, HOW THE ACTUAL FUCK DID THEY GET TO RICHIE?!??!? :scream:

    Also, refresh my memory, but Olivia and Noah never showed at the Stabler Christmas party, did they? I don't recall seeing them there at the end of the episode.

    It was an interrupted scene. I'm thinking they would have... but work. Ie: Bell showing up.

    It'll probably be that they aren't re-trying Wheatley.

    As much as I wish all this Wheatley crap would end, I do like how Barba stood up to him regarding Wheatley's persistent offers for Barba to be his new "consigliere".

    I mean, Barba did defend Wheatley as vigorously as possible, as any decent defense attorney would, but it's clear he doesn't like the guy. (To be fair, Barba probably doesn't like most people. :lol: )

    Also, I think we understand Eli a lot better now. When he was doing things like selling his grandma's meds, he wasn't doing it to be a dick, he was just conflicted. I like that Eli and his father patched things up, as it were. Eli's not a bad kid, he's just in a lot of pain, which is of course understandable.

    And Elliot's not a bad father, either. Under the circumstances I think he's a pretty GOOD father. Which is kind of an anomaly; traditionally, L&O doesn't treat fathers very well.

    (seriously, do any of the L&O detectives - in ANY series - have decent dads? :lol: )

    Yep. Especially in regards to Angela. That can be over yesterday. :shifty:

    Yea, but it'll take quite a bit for him to be friends with Olivia again. The writers really threw him under the bus.

    Exactly. At least we now know why he was doing what he was doing. To try to numb the pain.

    :lol: Yea they usually suck at it. But he's always been the anomaly, he was ok with his kids over the years ( Who can ever forget the guard it with your life talk that he had with Kathleen? :biggrin::guffaw:).

    Lost in the shuffle is news that Odelya Halevi is the other ADA. So the cast has been filled.

    Don't think we'll be seeing Chris Noth again anytime soon...

    Ripped from the headlines.... on the next Law & Order.... a long-running popular police procedural and legal drama that's been off the air for 10 years is being revived by the studio, and one of its most popular actors is being sought to return until several women accuse him of sexual assault and his agency drops him. And then someone is murdered. DUN DUN!

    I doubt L&O has the balls to do an episode like that. Noth would probably sue.

    Good. Heard that the talent agency that he was in, kicked him as well.

    I'm currently watching John Ales in a SVU episode. So Maddox has entered this thread.

    There's a fair whack of ST:Picard actors who have done L&O...Michelle Hurd was on SVU for a year, Allison Pill was on CI once, and I'm fairly sure Peyton List did some L&O work too.

    I think PIC may have the highest concentration of "L&O actors" of any Trek series. Most others only have like one (Scott Bakula was on SVU once, as was Kate Mulgrew. Brent Spiner was on CI, and Colm Meaney has done SVU and CI.)

    I'm racking my brain trying to remember if any TOS actors have ever done L&O. I don't think any have.

    Edit: Just remembered, a bunch from DSC have turned up in L&O shows. Sonequa was on CI, Anson Mount did the mothership and Conviction, Bill Irwin (Su'Kal) has a recurring role on SVU (he plays Benson's therapist), plus James Frain was also on SVU.

    Another edit: I do NOT envy Olivia's therapist. That's gotta be a full-time job. :lol:

    Yeah, I also forgot the actor who played the Shenzhou's helmsman (and, in the MU, was the captain) was on SVU as well. But that was after he did DSC.

    I can't take Bill Irwin as the therapist seriously. I just see Mr Noodle

    I can't take him serious at all. The therapist that is (have no issue with the actor). I wanted to slap him when he judged Olivia about her job. Like :wtf:. Just unprofessional, you know? The writers are something else on the show. :brickwall: :biggrin:
