Law & Order: Organized Crime is on a holiday hiatus on your TV screens. But as Christmas approaches, the cast still is on set.
But Danielle Mone Truitt, who plays Detective Ayanna Bell, is counting the days until holiday break. She’s just like all the rest of us, am I right?
The Law & Order: Organized Crime star posted a snap of herself on set. She’s all dressed in her detective best. A pair of black booties gives her law enforcement fashion look some pop. And she captioned the snap:
“Two more sleeps until Christmas Break!! Knocking these last few days of work out! ” She also added several hashtags. Mariska Hargitay, the star of Law & Order: SVU, also leans into the hashtags the same way.
Series Shifts to Antics of Richard Wheatley
Did you catch the last new episode of Law & Order: Organized Crime? It packed a wallop as the show introduced the second of three-story arcs written for season two.
Richard Wheatley (Dylan McDermott) and all his manipulative sidekicks are back in full force. The first two months of Law & Order: Organized Crime had Christopher Meloni’s Elliot Stabler go undercover to bust up an Albanian mob from the ground floor. Truitt’s Bell always kept her partner from straying too far over the line.
But in this story arc, Meloni doesn’t need to trot out Eddie Wagner, his bearded and bald alter ego. It’s no secret Stabler is out for Wheatley. After all, Wheatley killed his wife. Kathy Stabler died as a result of a car bomb explosion in April to kick off the first abbreviated season of Law & Order: Organized Crime.
Stabler and Bell thought Wheatley would be headed to a dreadfully long prison stay at Rikers. Instead, the jury deadlocks during a crossover with SVU, Dec. 9.
Poor Eli. Wheatley (or Angela) Tried to Mess With His Life
Wheatley wasn’t finished with Stabler. Or maybe Wheatley’s ex-wife, Angela, wasn’t finished with Stabler. The Christmas episode of Law & Order: Organized Crime focused on Stabler’s son, Eli. He met a young woman and headed to her place in New Jersey for a night of fun and pharmaceuticals. Naive Eli woke up on her couch, wearing his boxers. He finds the woman dead, in her own bed.
Eli freaks out and eventually calls his father. A beat cop found Eli looking out over the Hudson River. Back at the office, Jet pulled security footage from the woman’s apartment. She was a paid escort. Someone hired her to cozy up to Eli. Meanwhile, someone also was hired to kill the woman and make it appear as if Eli committed the murder. Wonder who?
It looks like Wheatley’s doing, doesn’t it? But Wheatley throws his daughter under the bus. Poor Angela, who was poisoned at the end of season one, knows nothing about the crime when Bell questions her.
But as the Law & Order: Organized Crime episode ends, we learn two things: Angela is faking her symptoms. And the state of New York has decided not to prosecute Wheatley again for Kathy’s murder.
Next new episode is Jan. 6. The title is Nemesis. Stick with Outsider for more details.
