Let’s talk about Thursday night’s TV!

LAW & ORDER: I’m really glad we got to get a little more insight into Dixon. Prior to this, we really had only seen her a couple of scenes per episode. But we learned a little bit about how long she’s been working with Frank, we saw she’s going to fight for their witness, and it felt like something.

The timing of an Ed Buck episode airing the day he was sentenced to prison…is kind of insane? Has that ever happened on a L&O before?

MASTERCHEF JUNIOR: I feel bad being critical of kids, but ooooh boy, the boys blew it. That was a straight up mess. I’m sorry to Freddy, the judges seemed to like him a lot, but he had been struggling and the raw chicken was understandably the final straw.

LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT: A tense episode, complete with two truly messed up cases. Incestuous rape is bad enough—and, truly, WTF to that—but a serial rapist who got away with it for two decades? Yikes.

At least the serial rapist was an egotistical dumbass who couldn’t resist taking credit for his work, because it meant the squad went all over the country to track down leads. (I know some of the local cops were busy, but I’m not exactly sure why it didn’t get knocked up to a federal case at that point…?) Why do psychos never learn you don’t gloat, you don’t do the villain monologue, you don’t bait the authorities! (But also good that he did, because he got caught; Olivia Benson played him like a fiddle.)

GHOSTS: I don’t even know where to start. The prom! The Sam backstory! The new mean girl ghost! Alberta being able to talk to Alexa?!?!? (Maybe the best product placement I’ve ever seen.)

But seriously, the Alexa thing could be fun going forward, because it allows Alberta, in theory, to have a bit more control over the house and do things for the ghosts. (She might kill her fellow ghosts, but it was nice she has new empathy for Sam.)

Sam. Oh Sam. That high school flashback was heartbreaking. And that SHE’S ALL THAT moment? Genuinely tears in my eyes. I love this show so much.

LAW & ORDER: ORGANIZED CRIME: I don’t know, I feel like when a man fires a gun at you repeatedly, maybe you don’t try to get closer to him. (Reason #4091803927 I would never be a cop.) Elliot going around Frank’s back to make the request that Preston deal with him feels like it could backfire from every angle, but could, hopefully, also make it so Elliot’s able to take both of them down faster.

(Also: We should all be terrified of Cassandra, right? She’s a terrifying badass.)

Elliot admitting he wanted to be an architect was an absolute kick to the gut, in the best way. More than 13 years ago, Elliot fought back against Bernie’s claims that he wanted to be an architect and denied he ever wanted to be anything other than a cop. Now? He’s okay with admitting it. It’s okay that he had a dream and desires that are very different from the way his life has turned out. It also is a good reminder of how far he and Bernie have come, especially since at the time of their SVU reunion, it was clearly they barely had a relationship and he was actively avoiding her. (Hell, Olivia didn’t even know his mother was alive.)

I continue to be cautiously worried about the Joe of it all, though. Joe may have loved Elliot! (And Bernie.) It doesn’t negate the fact he was abusive. I’m glad Elliot got some proof the father-son relationship wasn’t all bad, but I hope they don’t go too far in the opposite direction. Elliot doesn’t need to be tied down by the trauma of his past, but he doesn’t need to excuse the abuse that was inflicted upon him, either.

(But speaking of callbacks, Elliot has both delivered a child in the middle of nowhere and had one of his own kids delivered en route to the hospital. It’s maybe a minor miracle Frank’s kid wasn’t delivered in the backseat of Elliot’s car.)
