We have new episodes coming for Law & Order SVU and the original recipe Law & Order for the week of May 4. Criminal Intent fans must be patient for June when CI starts back up on USA. There has been nothing released as far as episode details for Criminal Intent – at least none that I can find – except that one episode is supposed to be named ‘Contract.”
