Detective Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) gets a big blast from his past at a time when he really needs it Law & Order: Organized Crime.
Then Florek, who played Stabler’s boss, friend and mentor, Captain Donald Cragen CSR, guest stars on the April 7 episode of Melonis Spinoff. The promo offers a look at his return as well as Stabler’s next step in his current undercover operation. The detective needs solid evidence that Donnelly (Denis Leary) is running a criminal enterprise, so what will he do? Do you wear a wire? Flipping someone is the better option, but who will be the next mole?
As for Florek’s return, we see him with Stabler, who asks what he’s heard about bad cops and corruption. Check it out below.
The logline for Can’t Knock the Hustle also reveals that Stabler turns to Cragen to help separate the truth from the lies after Donnelly’s versions of events disagree with what he says about the heroic rescue remembered his father at work.
That came at the end of the latest episode, Guns & Roses. Donnelly recalled a story about Stabler’s father being “famous” in his home when he was growing up. According to him, Stabler’s father and partner evicted a home without a warrant and were mugged by an unarmed hotheaded boy. His partner was startled and shot the child. To justify the shooting, Donnelly claims Stabler’s father searched the house, found a gun, and “his partner shot him in the leg and made it look like Joe was defending him.” … So Joe Stabler got a bloody fight cross for taking that bullet. Now you want to talk about loyalty, you want to talk about brotherhood, we’re just like our fathers.”
We last saw Florek in the world of law & order in the 500th episode of CSRin which Cragen gave an insight into the squad’s case and Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) said he was proud to call her “Captain” now.
