There are a lot of interesting characters on “Law & Order: Organized Crime,” but some are downright crazy. At least, that’s what fans are starting to think about one character in particular. Fans took to Reddit to discuss a certain character in detail.
“I take back what I said about Agnes,” the original post reads. “She went from being a quite [sic] coffee reader to a back stabbing coffee reader and she tried to take out [S]tabler.” That’s referring to the latest episode, when she pulled out a gun in the courtroom and started shooting at Bell and Stabler.
Another fan commented on the post, “I mean, in the previous episode she sent a woman to be killed and openly sided with some piece of s–t Mob boss over her own son. She was always a trashy person.”
One fan agreed, but not totally. They wrote, “To be fair she sided with the family, and her dumb son betrayed the family and brought a cop into the fold which eventually brought down the family. She was loyal to the end and right about Stabler the whole time.”
These details were done on purpose to make the character nuanced and interesting. She’s not totally black and white, but various shades of gray. She was loyal to her family to a fault; that excluded her son because he brought the family down. In the end, she did everything for the family, and that’s what made her character to frustrating and interesting. She lied, and manipulated people, but that was all part of who she was as a character.
‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’: Caroline Lagerfelt Talks Preparing to Play Agnes
“I’ve been a stage actress for 25 years and I love to do my research,” she said. “I’ve been reading everything about [Albania]. I practice my Albanian with my super every day when I walk past him. He was very happy when I told him the word ‘love’ that I had learned. He had a big smile on his face. And so I’m really enjoying it.”
Agnes was an interesting character because she didn’t speak until the very end of her arc. She had trouble speaking because of an injury from an earlier shooting. Lagerfelt spoke about playing a character with a speech defect, saying, “I researched these different speech defects. And the one they had chosen, which we went with, was a kind where after brain damage, where actually part of your mouth and your gums are paralyzed. And your voice is very hoarse, you know, and they didn’t want to be able to decipher the actual words.”
