While it could easily be said that every week that NBC's Law & Order: Organized Crime has been on the air so far has been a crossover event with Law & Order: SVU. We're not saying that's a bad thing because the synergy between the shows makes sense and serves both narratives- and viewers do not seem to be minding. But when both series return next month, the danger gets very real and very personal as the next official "Law & Order: OC/SVU Crossover Event" finds Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) and Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) dig into the death of Benson's brother Simon (Michael Weston)- and if it connects back to none other than Richard Wheatley (Dylan McDermott). Here's a look at some screencaps from the preview- followed by a look at the teaser and more:
Now here's a look at the first official teaser for the big two-hour, two-episode crossover event, set for Thursday at 9 pm ET/8 pm CT on NBC- followed by a clip from Law & Order: SVU where Benson opens up about those she's lost over the years- including her brother:
Law & Order: Organized Crime features Meloni returning to his Law & Order: SVU role as Elliot Stabler, rejoining the NYPD to battle organized crime after a devastating personal loss. However, the city and police department have changed dramatically in the decade he's been away, and he must adapt to a criminal justice system in the midst of its own moment of reckoning. Throughout the series, viewers follow Stabler's journey to find absolution and rebuild his life, while leading a new elite task force that is taking apart the city's most powerful criminal syndicates one by one.
