Spoilers forward for Episode 6 of Legislation & Order: Organized Crime Season 2, known as “Unforgivable.”
The plot has continued to thicken for Elliot Stabler whereas he stays undercover within the second season of Legislation & Order: Organized Crime, and it appeared at first like his cowl was going to be fully blown by the tip of “Unforgivable.” Fortunately – for him, anyway – he averted suspicion because the rat among the many Albanian mobsters, however the son of the real-life Eddie turned up out of nowhere, understanding that Stabler is certainly not his dad. Nonetheless, the largest drawback for Stabler shifting ahead will be the lack of his closest undercover ally: Reggie.
Whereas Reggie has clearly been one of many dangerous guys of this primary arc of Legislation & Order: Organized Crime Season 2, he hasn’t appeared so dangerous when in comparison with the likes of Albi and Jon Kosta. Reggie simply isn’t sharp sufficient to carry his personal amongst these greater up the ladder throughout the mob group, to the purpose that Stabler as Eddie was already getting recognition impartial of Reggie’s help for him.
However Reggie’s standing as a person on the within with absolute religion in “Eddie’s” loyalty and maybe not essentially the most observant meant that he was an extremely vital determine in Stabler’s undercover life. So long as he had Reggie believing all of his declarations of loyalty, he had any person to vouch for him. And that’s definitely not the case anymore after the occasions of “Unforgivable,” when Reggie went thus far that the authorities needed to arrest him moderately than let it slide to 100% defend Stabler’s cowl.
A person by the identify of Teddy Garcia was operating for governor of New York, and made what was in the end a lethal mistake by particularly calling out the Albanian mob as a part of his plan to crack down on organized crime. Jon Kosta took this as a really private insult, and Garcia had a goal on his again. Sadly, Garcia was additionally satisfied that his private safety could be enough to guard him, and turned down Bell’s efforts to persuade him to just accept police safety till it was too late to maintain everyone alive.
And regardless of Stabler interfering as a lot as he might on his finish and the cops getting their arms on Garcia when it was clear that the state of affairs was escalating, Reggie careworn himself out increasingly more whereas circling Garcia’s dwelling, ready to make the kill. Regardless of Stabler making an attempt to cease him over the telephone – and the truth that Garcia himself wasn’t dwelling – he shot and killed the one that answered the door: Garcia’s spouse. Reggie was arrested shortly thereafter, and the longer term doesn’t look good for him.
Garcia simply reiterated his plan to take down organized crime, and Jon Kosta merely plans for any person else to kill him after Reggie botched the primary try. Albi will deal with the second try at successful himself. As for Reggie, he’s presumably both going to must flip on his household and the others within the mob now that he is in custody, or spend time in jail the place he might simply be murdered. I’m unsure I see him flipping, and quite a bit might rely upon whether or not or not Stabler outs himself to Reggie now that Reggie is behind bars.
What followers could be fairly assured of is that Stabler misplaced his most dependable ally throughout the group, simply when suspicions are operating excessive about rats and any person is on the scene who is aware of that he’s not Eddie. Plus, I nonetheless say that Stabler is being method too informal in paying visits to his mother and Eli, particularly now that his life as Eddie is beginning to overlap together with his life as Stabler extra. If he’s adopted, and/or the dangerous guys discover out his identify, it might be solely too straightforward to do hurt to Eli.
Solely time will inform, nevertheless. Stabler can nonetheless kinda sorta depend on Albi as an ally, even with out Reggie to again him! New episodes of Legislation & Order: Organized Crime will proceed releasing on Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC, following new episodes of Legislation & Order: SVU at 9 p.m. ET. SVU simply hit its five hundredth episode milestone and remains to be assured no less than yet one more season; throw within the upcoming revival of the unique Legislation & Order, and this nook of the Dick Wolf universe goes very robust.
