While Law & Order: Organized Crime fans know Diany Rodriguez as ADA Maria Delgado, the actress is now joining The Blacklist. As Weecha Xiu, she will join the series as a regular. It is clear she will have a lot to do with the main storyline of the season.

Always one to play a badass character, Weecha Xiu is the latest example of what Rodriguez does best. Xiu is physical, experienced, and ready to do whatever she has to in order to defend herself. She has been in more than a few scraps in her life, it seems.

Viewers can expect to see Rodriguez in her new role this month. In just a few days on October 21 on NBC, a new season of The Blacklist premieres. Season 9 will be a jump two years in the future. The FBI Task Force team members come together in order to fulfill their original mission. So, they continue to look for Blacklisters.

As Maria Delgado in Law & Order: Organized Crime, Rodriguez has impressed viewers. She is a very busy woman nowadays and has had a lot of success in recent years.

‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’ Season Gets Exciting

Episode 5 of the new season of Law & Order: Organized Crime has revealed some big secrets. Eli Stabler, Elliot’s son has been getting into trouble. Bernadette is living with the family due to her health. Now it seems that Eli is stealing his grandmother’s pills. While dealing with her bipolar disorder, this is not helping Bernadette at all.

With his friends, Eli plans to sell the pills. If you aren’t going to use them, that’s the next best thing for wayward teens stealing from grandma. However, Eli’s friend does convince the young Stabler to take some and he does. By the end of the episode, Benson stumbles upon Eli trying to steal more pills while visiting Stabler.

This is not what Detective Stabler needs at the moment. Being undercover with the Albanian mob is one thing, but having a pill-popping teen at home just complicates things. So, this is going to have to be handled delicately. Even Benson is worried about Stabler and his position undercover. If it comes out who he is, there will be serious repercussions. Law & Order: Organized Crime continues season two all fall long.
