Law and Order Premiere Recap: Season 22 Episode 1

This law & order Premiere recap is for the final hour of a three-way crossover Law and order: SVU and Law & Order: Organized Crime. Be sure to check out our summaries of parts I and II.

“Since when have drug and sex dealing gangsters made political statements?”

That’s the question of the hour – posed by Nolan Price – as we set off law & order‘s season 22 premiere, which is also the third part of a crossover event with CSR and Organised crime. (A lot happened before we got to Jack McCoy-Land; you can catch up on the summaries of Lessons 1 and 2 here.)

Well where were we? Ah yes: the gangster in question, Sirenko, is in police custody and charged with the murder of five people and a host of other crimes, and everyone is trying to figure out their motive for the whole bombing thing. They question one of his associates, who, under threat of arrest, hands over Ava’s phone, which he found the morning she ran off the boat.

The phone includes footage Ava took of a Russian bigwig drunkly boasting that he was going to do something, a “big boom,” that would show the world Russia’s might. But when he realized Ava was filming him, he freaked out … which led to the altercation that bled her and got her going early in the crossover. So they arrest the Russian named Rublev.

Law and Order Premiere Recap Season 22 Episode 1However, the phone recordings are discarded as evidence, so ADA asks Maroun Liv for help in getting Nicole to cooperate with the prosecution. Just as Rollins is about to take her into town for a meeting, men shoot at her, Nicole runs… and one of them shoots Rollins in the groin! Oh no! Is this the beginning of the end for Amanda Rollins? CSR?

Benson arrives at the scene after Rollins has been taken to the hospital and the best anyone can tell her is that Amanda was alive when she was loaded into the ambulance. Then OH GOD CARISI IS HERE AND HE CRYING. He’s distraught as he asks if Rollins is alive or not, and the look on his face as he hugs Olivia could just kill me.

Back at the precinct, Benson lets Price know that Rollins is stable after surgery and that the gunmen probably found Nicole because she secretly texted someone earlier that day. He has more bad news: he needs Nicole to testify or Rublev will likely be released.

Law and Order Recap Season 22 Episode 1But all Benson cares about is giving Nicole a chance at a happy life. So she puts them on a plane to a relative in Toronto. “Get a court order and bring this girl back to New York!” McCoy crows when he finds out what Benson has done. But extradition rules make it difficult, and Maroun argues that Nicole’s trauma will turn her into a mess for the defense to take advantage of on the witness stand. Her solution: Make a deal with Sirenko to take Rublev down. McCoy is on board, to Price’s dismay.

Sirenko says Rublev, who was basically his boss, told him to kill Ava because she knew too much about his plan to blow up the hotel. Outside, Stabler is very hot about the fact that the man who killed Vince will be serving 20 years in prison instead of life without parole.

The process begins. Sirenko takes a position. It so upset Rublev that his lawyer offered to divulge Russian state secrets in exchange for leniency. McCoy says they need to look into the State Department’s offer, which angers Price, who wants the Russian to pay for all the people he’s killed.

Rublev initially requests immunity in exchange for what he knows, but an apoplectic Price refuses to play ball. Instead, Rublev humbles himself and says he will do whatever it takes as long as Price & Co. save his wife and children. Then, when Rublev is taken back into custody, a hitman shoots him point-blank. He dies while Price tries to stop the bleeding from his throat.

Law and Order Recap Season 22 Episode 1“Although this case was highly unusual in many respects and the trial was halted due to unforeseen circumstances, we feel justice has been served,” Price later told a group of reporters at a news conference. Meanwhile, we watch as Stabler raids a home where trafficked women are being held. And Cosgrove has another meal with his daughter where he says there’s no magic to keep everyone safe, but they’re doing their best.

He continues his “The world isn’t perfect, but it’s still beautiful” monologue as we see Carisi visit a beaten up but ALIVE Rollins in the hospital. Elsewhere, Liv visits Nicole, who seems happy.
