After weeks of tormenting his allies and foes, LAW & ORDER: ORGANIZED CRIME’s Richard Wheatley (Dylan McDermott) seemingly put his end game into motion in “As Hubris Is To Oedipus.”

With McClane (Robin Lord Taylor) under his control—Wheatley was no longer okay with being passive, and moved to locking him and Angela (Tamara Taylor) up—Richard manipulated the hacker, thanks to a few life-threatening moves toward Angela, into sending a message to his followers, giving Wheatley an army at his disposal. 

Wheatley utilized his new crew by threatening five locations with bombs, sending law enforcement scrambling to try and contain the madness. But in doing that, Jet (Ainsley Seger) and the task force were able to find a digital crumb, tracking down Wheatley’s address…where McClane was handcuffed to a pipe, with a bomb about to go off. (Wheatley unlocked Angela, revealing she had been working with him the entire time.)

After McClane was saved and the bomb was deactivated, Stabler (Christopher Meloni) and Bell (Danielle Moné Truitt) saw the schematics for the real target: A power plant in Queens, where once the server got infected, it would shut down the other subsections.

The duo raced there, and Stabler reiterated he was sure Wheatley was still hanging around rather than bolting to safety: “He’s got a front row seat to all this madness he’s created,” he explained. “He’s not just going to slink away without taking a curtain call.”

“Never underestimate the sheer audacity of a white man with nothing to lose,” Bell replied.

But after the plant was cleared of potential explosive devices, Stabler saw a taunting message on one of the computers. He and Bell knew enough to not touch it, but another officer knocked the mouse while trying to get a closer look…and started a countdown.

Despite the reassurances there were no bombs on the premises, everyone bolted from the power plant. But Stabler, channeling his inner Fox Mulder, stopped running away from the potential explosion. “That thing blows, we don’t stand a chance.”

And when the timer ran out, Manhattan lost its power. “Richard Wheatley just took the whole city hostage,” Stabler realized.

Uh oh
