For fans of Law & Order: Organized Crime, Elliot Stabler is back on the regular beat. What, though, does that mean for him?
In an interview with Yahoo! Entertainment, showrunner Ilene Chaiken talks about Stabler, played by Chris Meloni, leaving his underground job.
“Well, firstly, his reentry of course doesn’t come at the end of these eight episodes,” Chaiken said. “It begins in the next episodes, once that case is over.
“And it’s going to be fraught, as it’s bound to be, given what Stabler has been through, given that he’s lived in a violent and borderless world and also that he’s suppressed his own identity for so long,” she said. “We all acknowledge that he was hiding a bit and you can’t really hide from yourself, so he’s going to have to face himself.”
Stabler’s role in the Albanian drug ring story ended on Law & Order: Organized Crime last Thursday. It found Kosa, Albi, and Flutura in custody. Reggie’s mother Agnes faces accessory to murder charges, too.
Now, Outsiders, we do know that Elliot has been having issues with Richard Wheatley, played by Dylan McDermott. That storyline might be picked up, but the show still has some things to present for fans.
Anyway, catch a new Law & Order: Organized Crime episode on Thursdays at 10 .m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central, on NBC.
