Law & Order Episode Information for the Week of December 14, 2008

There is a new Law & Order episode scheduled to air on December 17, “Zero,” and I don’t have any information on when the next one will air. There is nothing for Law & Order SVU until the beginning of 2009. But, NBC has released information for one of the new 2000 Law & Order SVU episodes titled “Stranger” and that episode information is also listed below.

By the way, how long do you think it will take before Dick Wolf and his gang of merry writers rip off the story of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich and uses that as its excuse to rid us of the annoying Governor Shalvoy? Wolf was probably salivating when he heard that story. And since Jeremy Sisto looks so much like Gov. Blagojevich, I expect he was thinking he’d get the role for a “made for TV movie” that will probably show up eventually on the Lifetime network. Take a look – see the resemblance?

Separated at Birth?


Law and Order “Zero” Air Date December 17, 2008

DETECTIVES CYRUS LUPO (JEREMY SISTO) AND KEVIN BERNARD (ANTHONY ANDERSON) INVESTIGATE THE MURDER OF AN ENVIRONMENTALIST’S WIFE. NED BEATTY AND SHERRY STRINGFIELD GUEST STAR.

Detective Lupo (Jeremy Sisto) and Detective Bernard (Anthony Anderson) are called to a crime scene where Nancy Hartwig (guest star Leah Curney) has been found murdered. They find out her husband insisted the family live environmentally friendly to avoid leaving a heavy carbon footprint. However, Nancy’s support of her husband is soon called into question when the detectives discover that she used her car to chauffeur her sister and had drinks at a bar one evening, which her husband wouldn’t allow. The victim’s missing car turns up with a dead passenger and drugs inside, sending the case in a completely different direction that leaves the detectives scrambling to piece everything together. During the trial, ADA Michael Cutter (Linus Roache) also begins to suspect an old friend, Judge Reynolds’ (guest star Ned Beatty) clerk Carly (guest star Sherry Stringfield), and even the judge himself of obstructing justice, creating even more turmoil in the case. Also starring: Sam Waterston, S. Epatha Merkerson and Alana De La Garza.

Coming up in 2009:

Law & Order SVU “Stranger” Air Date January 6, 2009

DETECTIVES ELLIOT STABLER (CHRIS MELONI) AND OLIVIA BENSON’S (MARISKA HARGITAY) SUSPICIONS ARISE WHEN A TEENAGED “JANE DOE” (Guest Star ELLEN WOGLOM) TAKES ON TWO IDENTITIES.

Heather Hallander (guest star Ellen Woglom) miraculously returns home after being reported missing over four years ago. Unrecognizable to her family, Heather tells Detectives Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) of the cement cell where she spent the past four years as a sex slave and of her fortunate escape. Heather’s sister, Erica Hallander (Kate Baldwin), is relieved to see her long-lost sister after launching a website asking for search tips, but, Nikki Hallander (Natalia Payne), Heather’s other sister, seems annoyed with her return. In search of the mystery kidnapper, Benson and Stabler drive Heather around town to help stir up any memories of her abduction. When Heather’s answers don’t seem to match up, the detectives find revealing evidence that make them question Heather’s kidnapping and true identity. Also starring Dann Florek, Richard Belzer, Ice-T, Michaela McManus, B.D. Wong, and Tamara Tunie.

hello. i found your blog while gooling both 'shalvoy' and 'blagoavich', one of less than 10 hits. im hoping they use the time they have to write a nice season finale, sort of like last season with shalvoy.

but about the last aired SVU, the part about the judge having dolphin sex photos is also ripped from the headline. a judge on the 9th circuit court of appeals (kozinski) got reported by latimes that he had pornos on his public (maybe judge) website DURING an obscenity trial. google kozinski and porn, you should find it,.

Yuruke, the change in date for this episode remains a mystery. It really is hard to figure out NBC programmers these days!
