Watch Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 2 Episode 12 “As Iago Is to Othello”
Previously on Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 2 Episode 11, Det. Stabler knew Richard Wheatley was behind the city’s ransomware attacks with the help of Sebastian McClane. He stalked Wheatley to get proof but came up short. McClane tried to right his wrongs when he caused a man’s death. When he gave himself up, Wheatley had him intercepted and they fled just before police could arrest them.
Warning… Spoilers below!
On Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 2 Episode 12, The OC team and the Feds had nothing on Wheatley and McClane’s disappearance and the blackout.
Det. Stabler noticed an interesting building across the street, a large data center. They visited and learned of a possible plan that a breach of the data center could amount to trillions being stolen from financial markets!
Right Where We Want Him
Bernadette got a visit from Miles, their neighbor, bringing flowers. Stabler wondered about the new man and Bernadette didn’t want the cop to scare off her new friend.
Stabler and Bell were questioned about the night before. Stabler told them he saw Wheatley and McClane before the blackout. He suspected they were going to attack the data center.
The team decided to focus on Angela so they had detectives surveilled in the apartment above hers. When they listened in, Wheatley visited, gifting her diamonds. They used high tech to see heat signatures inside the apartment and listen through the floor. The encounter almost turned violent as Wheatley threatened her with a knife telling her that he can’t stand seeing her with another man!
The stock market started to crash as McClane hacked the markets. They basically conducted a GameStop at mass. Wheatley had vengeance on getting everything authorities had taken from him. However, McClane didn’t want the money he stole.
Miles visited with flowers again and formally met Stabler who grilled him like a father with his daughter.
Bell went to meet her wife for their anniversary lunch but was ambushed by Governor Garcia, Congressman Kilbride, and her confidential informant, Nova. They spoke with her about Stabler being an overzealous cop with a vendetta.
After the meeting, Bell pulled Nova to the side questioning why no heads-up. Nova couldn’t blow her cover with the politician and told her that the bureaucrats may be right about Stabler. She witnessed his actions while he was undercover with the Albanians…
Sgt. Brewster pulled Bell aside to inform her that Stabler was going to be forced into a psych evaluation.
The team brainstormed a tactic to use all personal information from Wheatley’s past arrest to hack into his accounts.
The team planted a laptop in Angela’s house. Wheatley slipped into her home, snooped through the laptop, and found a selfie of Stabler, bare chest, and messaging to meet her. Later on, Stabler met with Angela for dinner knowing Wheatley would be spying on them. Stabler gave a wonderful performance for the onlooker while confronting Angela.
An envious Wheatley barged into the professor’s classroom and forced her to come with him. He got her to his place and roughed her up demanding to know why was she with Stabler and was she sleeping with him. She told him that she wasn’t. In order to save McClane, she seduced and kissed her ex-husband.
Back at the OC… Jett and Malachi cracked Wheatley’s code and gained access. It was the day Kathy Stabler died. It was a personal low blow to Elliott. Meanwhile, Wheatley met with Miles to ensure the casanova was charming Bernadette.
In Your Head
Stabler confronted Wheatley in the elevator and punched him in the face. Wheatley claimed the cop was assaulting a private citizen. Stabler snarked back that he had his wife and showed her panties (detectives stole.) The two fought furiously but were interrupted when Stabler got a call from Bell to back off. A battered Wheatley told Stabler he was in his head.
Back at OC, Bell confronted Stabler, telling him that she wouldn’t back him up in front of bureaucrats because she personally didn’t see Wheatley and McClane at the building.
Suddenly, the team got a call from McClane telling them he would give Wheatley to them because he left breadcrumbs in his hacking activities with the markets. He was a modern-day Robinhood. As he spoke with police, he casually walked up to people in a library, passing out stacks of cash then disappearing.
Stabler was forced to speak with Dr. Aboud about his obsession with Wheatley. He brokered a deal with the physician to allow him two days to prove Wheatley was trying to rob the stock exchange for billions. If he’s wrong… he will voluntarily give up his badge and gun!
