Law & Order: SVU Season 23 Episode 9 Recap
‘Law & Order: SVU’ season 23 episode 9, titled ‘People v. Richard Wheatley,’ starts with Olivia having a brief encounter with Elliot, whose wife’s gravesite they are all gathered at. Although his son Eli visibly seems to be doing better, he is 24×7 under his father’s surveillance. Wheatley’s new lawyer turns out to be former assistant district attorney Rafael Barba. He entertains the possibility of the New York Police Department framing Wheatley for murder.
At the trial, Baptiste questions Olivia while Barba points the finger at Elliot’s problematic disciplinary record. Barba ultimately states that the NYPD has tampered with the evidence putting Izak Bekher and Wheatley’s innocence under threat. Olivia confronts Eli about showing up drugged and sending her a letter he didn’t even write. When Angela is about to testify, Barba brings up her affair with Elliot. She is then forced to admit that she has feelings for him. Elliot freaks out at the stand when Barba brings up his PTSD, his family problems, and other problems that could taint the credibility of his statements.
A few moments later, Elliot finds the perfect chance to taunt and provoke Wheatley at the men’s urinal, which motivates the criminal to appeal to the jury in his own words. Wheatley openly blames Bekher for Kathy’s murder, and a little uneasiness in the courtroom leads to more of that when he proceeds to threaten Carisi’s life. Before the jury declares that it is deadlocked, Wheatley asks Barba to be his advisor, but he declines the offer. The judge then rules for a mistrial against Baptiste and Carisi’s wishes. Elliot believes that they have lost besides wrapping his head around the news of his son’s disappearance.
