Previously on Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 2 Episode 7, the OC team sought a grand jury inditement against Jon Kosta and his Albanian drug smuggling, sex trafficking ring. They arrested Reggie and used him to flip against his family. They miscalculated his mother, Agnes, thinking she would convince Reggie to rat on the family. She managed to get a message to Albi and Jon that Reggie was a rat and they fled… cleaning up all loose ends.

By the time the cops closed in they only swept up lieutenants and lower thus missing capturing Albi, Flutura, and Kosta. Det. Stabler and Sgt. Bell swarmed on the gym and Lewis had come back, when they tried to intercept the man, the gym exploded!

Warning… Spoilers below!

On Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 2 Episode 8, after the explosion, snipers on the roof of the gym opened up on police staging below! A few cops were killed but they ended up taking out the snipers. Their surveillance confirmed several armed men were still inside with access to RPGs. Also, they didn’t see Albi or Kosta exit the building…


When they breached, they found the murdered court reporter and figured she was the leak. The explosion really took its toll on Sgt. Bell so Stabler ordered her to report to the medic.

Further investigation into the gym revealed a tunnel and it’s how Albi and Kosta escaped. Stabler chased after them alone. Kosta and Albi were still in the tunnel as Stabler pursued. Albi got Kosta out while he held off the cop. Kosta jumped inside an ambulance leaving Albi behind but he managed to getaway.

As the ambulance fled police caught up to them. Kosta jumped out running towards the docks to catch a ride with a man in a speed boat who was supposed to take him to a larger getaway boat but he fled at the sight of police- leaving Kosta behind. When Bell and Stabler caught up to him, Kosta was shocked to find out Stabler (aka Eddie Wagner) was a cop!

Secret Lover

Albi broke into a nearby home and stole a car to meet Flutura. He planned to get away with her. Meanwhile, Stabler and Bell had already apprehended her and caught the entire exchange. Albi managed to get to Flutura’s location undetected and she was on the balcony and signaled to him to flee. Something her “besa” creed mandated to protect her family. He looked at his love for the last time and left…

The team got a tip that Albi stole a car and video surveillance revealed he came to Flutura but exited soon after. Stabler had her arrested as he figured out she tipped the fugitive off.

Albi met a man who turned out to be his secret lover. They were planning to flee to the Dominican Republic. There was a USB drive Albi had taped to himself as it was important to his future. They got to the docks but police were closing in. They stole a yacht with unsuspecting adolescence partying onboard.

Police got to the captain’s top deck and Albi turned the gun on his lover making him a hostage. He too was surprised to see Wagner as a cop. He made demands to receive a helicopter and have Flutura brought to him. Stabler pushed all of the cops back and cut his communication to the team to gain the man’s trust to talk him back.

They brought Flutura to the boat. Stabler kept his promise to not reveal his sexual status to Flutura and he let his hostage go. They allowed Flutura to embrace Albi and he dropped his gun then they arrested him.

Besa Forever!

The U.S. Marshals were transporting Reggie and his mother to an undisclosed location until NYPD intercepted Agnes for her role in bribing the court reporter and getting her killed. Reggie was irate about it!

That morning the entire Kosta leadership was arraigned in court. When they wheeled Agnes in court in a wheelchair she murmured some words of anger towards Stabler and pulled out a gun to shoot at him screaming “Besa Forever!” Stabler instinctively protected Bell. Luckily the woman didn’t hit anyone.

Bell met with her CI, Nova, a lieutenant from the Marcy Projects gang. She gained a foot in with higher-ups in the gang. She also revealed the crooked Congressman was a part of the crew and learned he had a sergeant detective in the NYPD he could lean on if the heat got too hot.

Reggie was transported to a snowy indiscreet place working as a gas station attendant as part of his witness protection program.

That night, Stabler reflected on all of the mayhem he witnessed and the dirty deeds he committed being a part of the Kosta organization. At the request of Bell, he finally shaved his beard- shedding all of the guilt of the case with it…

6 comments on Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 2 Episode 8 Recap “Ashes To Ashes”

  1. Leslie Radcliffe says:

    Who put the gun under the seat of the wheelchair and how did Agnes Bogdani know it would be there?

    1. Sir Anthony says:

      That was never made clear. It was also unclear why she was in a wheelchair in the first place as she was capable of walking. My assumption is that one of Kosta’s gang members planted it or she bribed someone for it.

  2. Lisa says:

    What happened to the boy who was Eddies son. We saw him get hit by the explosion, but unless I missed it they didnt say if he was
    a. Injured
    B. Dead or
    C. Not hurt and Able to escape

    1. Sir Anthony says:

      They did show a shot of someone in the rumble on the ground. I assume it was him (so I choose “B” and think he’s dead) especially since he was so close to the blast. Weird how they never made a mention of him throughout the episode…

      1. Tina says:

        This is driving me crazy also. They introduced a sweet-faced kid who is given a bunch of money and transportation to leave, and he returns to the gym? For what purpose? Who was he really? I saw the crumpled heap on the ground, but this feels like way too much is unsaid and unexplained here.

        1. Sir Anthony says:

          The kid was Lewis. He was the real Eddie Wagner’s son who returned to get a job but it would expose Det. Stabler. So they detained him to figure out what to do with him. They figured he needed a new start with stability and a new location so they gave him cash and sent him away.

          I’m not entirely sure why he came back but Stabler’s RV and the gym were the places he knew where to find him. Hopefully we learn more in the next episode.
