LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT Scoop: Dean Winters to Return!
February 12, 2013 by Marisa Roffman
NBC confirms that LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT will welcome back Dean Winters’ Brian Cassidy — who appeared in the first half of the show’s first season all the way back in 1999 before coming back for an arc in the season 13 finale/season 14 premiere — for an episode that is set to air sometime in March. (I’m hearing the tentative title is “Undercover Blue.”)
So what brings Winters back to the show this time around?
It seems Cassidy is called in to testify in the case against Bart Ganzel (Peter Jacobson), the pimp who tried to have him killed earlier in the year. But things get complicated before Cassidy can give his testimony — a woman from Cassidy’s past claims he raped her while he was undercover…which could cost Cassidy his job and ruin the case against Ganzel.
Odds are this won’t go over so well with his former colleagues…
Are you excited to have Cassidy back?
