Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 2 Episode 1 Spoilers
Due to the nature of the show, making any concrete predictions are complex, but we are getting some early scoops. Previously, series co-creator Dick Wolf spilled that the 24-episode long second season will be broken into three eight-episode long chapters. The first third of the season, he said in the interview, would be something akin to ‘The Godfather.’ The sinister nature of the villainy shown in the season will reinstate Detective Elliot Stabler’s faith in the justice system. He will be hellbent on catching the criminals in a way that the series has never before depicted.
As per the official synopsis, the second season’s pilot, titled ‘The Man with No Identity,’ begins with Stabler taking down the drug empire of Wheatley and identifying his wife’s assailant. But the situation will turn tumultuous with an infamous organized crime family attempting to conquer the cocaine trade routes of New York City. On the other hand, Sergeant Bell will have to make amends with a rival colleague after a chance meeting at an investigation. Some crossover conjectures may hark back to the early heydays of ‘Law & Order: SVU,’ and we hope to see some connected story arcs between Stabler and Benson.
