Well, Law & Order: Organized Crime fans, we’ve got a few more weeks to go over all of our crazy and so-crazy-they-just-might-work theories before the next episode drops on December 9. At least a few fans think they might have an explanation for the real Eddie Wagner’s son returning to the Albanian’s gym.

Let’s see where their theories land, crazy or just-might-work. For starters, we need to go over some of the events of Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 2 Episode 7, titled “High Planes Grifter.” At the end of the episode, Stabler and Bell go back to the Albanian’s boxing gym for leads on Albi, Flutura, and Kosta.

When they arrive, they’re surprised to find Lewis Wagner. The young man is the real son of Eddie Wagner, the man behind Stabler’s undercover identity. Lewis knows that Stabler isn’t his real dad, yet he seems drawn to him regardless. When Stabler spots him, the gym explodes, the blast engulfing Lewis.

This is where the theories come into play. Why did Lewis Wagner show up at the gym? The show would have us believe that the Albanian mob left the explosives for Stabler and Bell. But some Law & Order: Organized Crime fans on Reddit beg to differ. And, we must say, they’re making a lot of sense.

“If you look at the state of the Albanian gang, they look disoriented and scorched when Stabler and Bell enter the gym in the aftermath of the explosion. If they set the explosives themselves, one would assume they’d have better protected themselves from an explosion that they set,” wrote JargonPhat.

A handful of others seconded the theory. A few suggested that Lewis thought he could impress Chris Meloni’s Stabler by doing away with the likes of Albi and Kosta himself.

Albi Survived the Explosion on ‘Law & Order: Organized Crime,’ Which Is Good Because the Show Promised Vinnie Jones His Character Would Live

Vinnie Jones is no stranger to playing the villain. He’s been doing it memorably since his early acting days in movies like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. But unfortunately, like a few other famous actors we could mention, his characters always manage to get killed off.

Not this time, folks. The Albi Briscu actor recently talked to CinemaBlend about his villainous character on Law & Order: Organized Crime. Apparently, the show made him a promise.

“I auditioned for it, sent my tape in, and they liked the tape. But they were more concerned about the accent. So I [did] an Albanian accent, sent that in, and they loved it. And then [my manager] said, ‘There’s good news and bad news.’ I said, ‘Okay, what is it?’ He said, ‘You don’t get killed.’ I went ‘Hurrah’ because I get killed in most of my movies or TV shows,” said Jones.
