With LAW & ORDER: ORGANIZED CRIME’s Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) no longer undercover, the Organized Crime Control Bureau has a new target of possible corruption in sight as the season’s plot officially gets underway on Thursday, September 29.

“The big story revolves around the building and opening of New York City’s first casino, which is in process in the real world, but we’re beating everybody to it—we’re opening the first casino on LAW & ORDER: ORGANIZED CRIME,” former showrunner Bryan Goluboff tells Give Me My Remote. [Editors note: Goluboff exited the series shortly after this interview was conducted, with Sean Jablonski stepping in as showrunner. (Goluboff will still be credited as an executive producer for season 3.) A source has verified the quotes in this piece are still accurate post-regime change.] 

“As my friend who actually works in Organized Crime said, ‘A casino is mobbed up from the first shovel of dirt in the ground to the [sex worker] servicing the businessman in the penthouse,'” Goluboff says. “And it’s on Organized Crime’s radar right away.”

At the center of it all is the Silas family, who won the bid to build said casino. “They’re like a great New York real estate family,” Goluboff previews. “They brawled their way to the top. And the project has been entrusted to sort of their golden boy son, Teddy Silas, and he married this incredible young woman named Pearl Serrano, who is this gorgeous It Girl. She’s brilliant. They met at Wharton. They sparked off, they’ve opened six clubs in New York, two in London, one in Macau. She’s just been on this rocket ride. She’s this girl from Astoria, Queens, met this rich guy and they fell in love and they just took off.”

“Now, they have their biggest project ever, and it’s the running of this casino,” he continues. “And what we’re going to find out is what she finds out: what she married into. This family hides a lot of criminality in all their bills. And she actually is coming to this [from a] much more pure place, which is she wants to bring jobs to New York. She wants to sort of stand up [for what] she kind of left behind in Queens when she married into this family.”

In Pearl’s mind, “New York’s in a really tough place, and, economically, this thing could really save a lot of people, give them jobs with pensions and benefits,” Goluboff notes. “She has a vision for what the casino can do. And it gets compromised by the corners they need to cut, the palms they need to grease, the favors they need to pay back to get this casino built. And it causes a lot of tension in the marriage.”

Over at OCCB, the investigation will cause a headache for Sergeant Ayanna Bell (Danielle Moné Truitt)—from trouble within the NYPD.

“We’ve done a lot of research into what, exactly, is the difference between Bell’s job and Stabler’s job,” Goluboff says. “What does she do as the sergeant in that task force? [We’ve been] delineating his role and her role. And a lot of what she has to do is, as the sergeant, as Stabler’s boss, quite frankly, is she’s the one who has to deal with the brass. She has to pitch her cases. She has to get money to fund their investigations. She’s fighting all these political battles at a higher level.”

“There’s a lot of story as we watch her try to navigate through One PP and the department to get what she needs for these cases,” he continues. “And what we’re going to find is that there are people that don’t want her and Stabler investigating this casino, because a lot of people want to make a lot of money with it. And they don’t really want to hear how the omelette is actually made. So it becomes very politically dangerous for her within the department to do her job. But she has her own purview and Elliot has his, and we’re really trying to carve that out for the season.”
