Let’s talk about Thursday night’s TV!

LAW & ORDER: Odelya Halevi and Hugh Dancy did some of their best work of the series, as Sam and Nolan tried to navigate a tricky case together…while he was aware she was maybe drawing on her own history a bit more than the actual case. Nolan was supportive, but not pushy; he was the right mix, which isn’t easy to pull off. And when she came to him when it was called out to her, rather than coddle her, he told her the truth. I’m glad Sam realized the right move to make, eventually.

GHOSTS: Hetty and Sam were so sweet together, even if Hetty and Trevor were up to some naughty, naughty behavior. (Not the way Trevor was thinking, though.) I’m so glad the two women are able to embrace their quasi mother-daughter dynamic, to heal the relationships they didn’t get to have with their own kid/mother.

Literally laughed out loud at Flower asking Sass if he was going to write a rock opera about Jessica, post-kiss, since he carved up a tree for a girl he had only said “hi” to. Poor sweet (jealous) Sass.

LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT: Well, that rape tree was one hell of a horrifying visual.

I understand Olivia Benson is (frequently) a better person than most humans, at least most days, but I don’t know if I would have gone as far as she did to save her attacker. He was a victim, too, but he tried to kill her and endangered Noah’s life. (Not to mention, this kid is probably traumatized? Noah has now been with his half-brother for 10 days, in the immediate aftermath?? So even if he’s physically safe, it’s a real question about how he’s emotionally doing.)

(I know the suspect asked Olivia to punch him, but, uh, I’m guessing that wouldn’t exactly hold up in a court of law.)

I find myself really wishing this trilogy had been handled a bit differently/more condensed (because despite the promo, the BX9 story felt fairly done tonight), but I am, at least, really enjoying Bruno and Fin’s dynamic.

LAW & ORDER: ORGANIZED CRIME: I am begging the writers of ORGANIZED CRIME to stop putting Elliot Stabler undercover. Not only is it wildly unrealistic given his very high-profile court cases in the past 13 months, but it’s also the least interesting option right now. Don’t get me wrong—Elliot was great undercover last season. But we’ve seen that. We’ve barely gotten the chance to see Jamie (or Jet!) go under. (Or BELL. Let Bell go undercover, please and thanks.)

Also, I’m sorry, justice for Jamie. He may have gone rogue, but he was also correct—they searched him for a wire as soon as he left the bathroom last episode. If he had kept it on, he might have been killed? He had to make an impromptu decision in the moment, and it saved his life.

I’m glad Jamie called out that Elliot was being a bit of a hypocrite…and Elliot eventually quasi-apologized for how he treated his mentee.

And, uh, yeah, officially worried about Bell’s new boss. So many red flags.
