LAW & ORDER: ORGANIZED CRIME’s Organized Crime Control Bureau got a major win when they were able take down the Kosta family at the end of the sophomore season’s first pod. But things were a little more complex for the task force itself.

With Sergeant Bill Brewster (Guillermo Diaz) temporarily reassigned to work (and co-lead the team) with Sergeant Ayanna Bell (Danielle Moné Truitt) for the duration of the case, the former colleagues did their best to get through the assignment. And though Bell got to keep the task force when the case wrapped up, there was a twist in store: Lieutenant Moennig (Daniel Oreskes) revealed that Brewster had been promoted and was now, essentially, Bell’s boss. (Again.)

“Of course her sights are always high, but she’s a fairly new sergeant,” Truitt acknowledges. “It takes time to climb up the ladder. And she’s just disappointed that it’s Brewster that’s going to be her boss now. She’s happy with her task force, they’re doing really good work. When the time is right for her to move up the chain, she will. She will.”

Even with that awareness, the Brewster of it all isn’t exactly the easiest of pills to swallow for Bell. “She just doesn’t want Brewster to be lieutenant,” Truitt explains with a laugh. “It’s making her life harder. When Lieutenant Moennig said, ‘I’m putting you back in charge of the task force,’ in that moment, Bell felt like she won. It was between her and Brewster. Just to be blindsided with, ‘Oh, he’s going to be my boss. It was terrible the first time and now I have to deal with it again.'”

Though things didn’t work out this go-round, Bell is “certainly looking to move up in the ranks or up in the world,” ORGANIZED CRIME showrunner Ilene Chaiken says. “I don’t see her as baldly ambitious, but I see her as someone that wants to make a difference. She’s a young woman, she’s fought hard to get where she is. And she wants to keep finding ways to be more and more effective. That’s very much her drive.”



But don’t expect Bell’s partner, Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni)—who has been a detective for his entire tenure in the LAW & ORDER universe—to seek any similar promotions. “He’s a man that feels that he’s where he should be,” Chaiken says. “And [this is where] he can be the best—the best cop, the best justice fighter—as detective first grade.”

In the meantime, Truitt teases the task force will next encounter Brewster in episode 10 (airing Thursday, January 6, 2022). “We see Brewster, he’s a lieutenant, but they’re kind of working together still,” she previews. “There’s no overt, ‘I’m in charge of you’ type of [situation]. Bell, she’s such a classy woman; she’s a class act. So if he’s a lieutenant, she’s gonna respect him as lieutenant.”

“Now, she’s not going to back down when he’s acting crazy,” she continues with a laugh. “But she’s going to respect the position that he’s in—unless he’s going too far. If there’s any craziness that happens, I really feel it’ll be coming from Brewster’s side.”
