Bobby Goren: Where Will He Go From Here?


Vincent D’Onofrio has had his work cut out for him in the last two seasons of Law & Order Criminal Intent as Detective Robert “Bobby” Goren. Goren’s mother, who had mental problems, died of cancer. He finds that his biological father is a serial killer. Goren goes undercover to help his brother Frank’s son Donny, is tortured, and gets suspended for 6 months for the unauthorized undercover work. His brother Frank was murdered, apparently at the hand of Goren’s nemesis, Nicole Wallace. Nicole Wallace is apparently missing her heart and is presumed dead, and his mentor Declan Gage is going off the deep end. It begs the question: Where will Bobby go from here?

To highlight the high points of Vincent D’Onofrio’s work in telling the story of an increasingly troubled Bobby Goren, I’ve prepared this video (below). Since he won’t be rewarded with an Emmy for his efforts, the least I can do is honor his work in my own way.

Great video, I hope that he will be able to find the one last person he has left family wize and that there isn't too much angst next season.

Thanks, this is great! I'm glad to be in the company of others who not only can't wait to see what's next for Bobby but who appreciate D'Nofrio's rendering of the character. I think I'll put this on my blog too!

great work.....I had no idea,watching it tonight, oh so casually as I checked into my hotel, that this was actually real!~! I still can't believe they are both gone...what's the back story? They wanted more money? Different acting gigs? I still remember his two-part tun on Homicide as the man trapped under the train....and how about Full Metal Jacket...this guy is an amazing character actor and I will sorely, surely miss him, and her, from the show...BIG BIG loss....
