Fans have wanted to see the return of Stabler to the Law & Order universe for so many years, and they finally got their wish with a fresh perspective on OC.

Spoilers Ahead for ‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’
Stabler’s world on the program is getting more complicated by the day. Reggie is in a tough spot on the program, so Stabler and Brewster seize the opportunity to take advantage of the former in a really interesting way. As you know, Stabler is deep undercover in the KO gang and with that comes its problems. Things can get dicey in a hurry.
For Reggie, things got dicey in a hurry. Remember, the reason he found himself in this mess was the botched murder. Yes, Reggie is in a lot of trouble. A lot of trouble as he killed the wife of Teddy Garcia, who is a political star on the rise in New York City. It was a huge error that landed him in the crosshairs of Sgt. Brewster who really wants to get Reggie to flip on the higher-ups in the criminal gang.
This is the end game for the powers that be. They want to see the KO gang go down, but that only happens if Reggie flips on some powerful folks. This is not going to be an easy task. So, Stabler’s familiar voice enters the fold, which shows Reggie not everybody is who they think they are. Stabler played him as an undercover cop, which obviously upsets Reggie. He goes after him to no avail. Stabler pokes and pokes at the weaknesses of Reggie and why it is silly to protect this gang that did not even protect his own family.

Meloni told Men’s Health of this recent ride, “This time around with the Law & Order ride, I’m not stressed by: Will it go well? Will it not go well? Not that I know how it’s going to go. Just that, eh, just ride. Just do, just be.” Because Meloni knows now what he didn’t know the first time: “There are bigger things, more important things. I know how important this is to me, but I have a clearer vision of life. I know a little more about love.
