    It's all about painting Olivia in the best light.

    :lol: I didn't really view it that way tbh. But I did feel bad about her there.

    Just saw an episode of Special Letters Unit from 2006. They have to throw a bone to parents every once in a while.

    Donal Logue, Jason Biggs and two other cops who have previously been on SVU
    on tomorrow's episode. Is this a backdoor pilot for a reworked Law & Order: Hate Crimes?

    Saw the preview for OC...and wouldn't you know it, fucking WHEATLEY again.

    Shit, doesn't this guy ever go away? :brickwall:

    It felt like it was a good cast that would get me interested in checking it out when its on proper.

    As for the last OC, I can't say I'm surprised to see that...

    Wheatley was the one who busted Sebastian out of prison.

    Was NOT expecting to see Wheatley and Angela working together again though. Have to see where this goes, I guess. I suppose we can all hope that she'll turn on him, but still...

    And I'm convinced that Elliot totally knows Angela is faking her illness. Something about that scene with them in the coffee shop...got my suspicions up.

    If it means Murphy comes back I'm all for it! Great to see him again.

    I like Donal Logue but Murphy is a shitbag who abandoned his child. I'm guessing they did some kind of remorse in his episode.

    Ah, no, he's not, not even close.

    In an earlier episode, as soon as Murphy found out that Amanda was pregnant, he offered to come out of undercover work and support her in any way she needed. She said she wanted to raise Jesse on her own and she didn't need anything from him.

    And this was made clear again in this last ep. Amanda clearly had NO problems with Murphy's job keeping him undercover, she had nothing against him, she didn't consider him a deadbeat (indeed, he DID show remorse at being under for so long that he couldn't be a part of his daughter's life), and that the way she raised Jesse was what she wanted all along.

    Hell, Amanda didn't even blame Murphy for their having a fling in the first place - it was Murphy who felt kinda guilty about that.

    That said...now that Murphy is back, it sure seems like he wants to have some kind of relationship with Jesse, I'm sure Jesse has been told about her father and that Amanda will let him visit.

    This week's OC continues to crash and burn. Are we supposed to side with Stabler because even know Wheatley is an asshole, he has it right. Stabler is a cop out of time and during his time on SVU, that was his detriment. He's even worse now. It's like they jerked the wheel in the opposite direction from Benson & her feelings. Wheatley continues to be a giant ass hat and part of it has to do with Dylan McDermott trying to save subpar writing.

    I'm confused why we needed to take the detour early in the season with the Albanians, just to go back to Wheatley. And I thought we were going to go to the slimy congressman there for a moment, but that seems to be pushed back to the background.

    I love Bell & Slootmaekers, but they keep bending over backwards to make Stabler look better.

    Exactly. It's a mess. I was laughing at the episode and not even other characters can save or salvage it.

    I think that thing with Kilbride was just a tease for the Mercy Killers arc which will presumably come after the Sebastian arc ends. (AFAIK, OC will typically have three 8-episode arcs per season.)

    Edit: I actually thought the last OC was pretty good. I'm particularly intrigued by how less evil Sebastian seems to be getting. He actually expected to go back to prison! Would be very interested to see how this plays out.

    And is it just me, or do they not seem to know how to pronounce Jet's last name? It used to be Sloot-a-makers, now it's Sloat-Mockers. :confused:

    Oh, and as for the last SVU:

    Noah came out to his mother as bi.

    Which is fine, as far as it goes, but do kids that young even know what the word "bisexual" even means? That's kind of an adult word for a kid Noah's age, innit?

    I mean, if Noah likes girls and boys, hey, then fine. Let him say so. It just felt like the writers were speaking and he wasn't.
