Law & Order “Boy Gone Astray” Photos, Plus Info on Upcoming RFTH Episode

NBC has released some advance photos from the Law & Order episode “Boy Gone Astray” which is set to air this Friday (see below). The photos feature S. Epatha Merkerson, Alana De La Garza, Jeremy Sisto, Anthony Anderson, and guest star Ernie Hudson (as Anita's friend Frank). My recap and review of Law & Order "Boy Gone Astray" can be found here.

The Wrap reports that an upcoming episode of Law & Order will be based on a combination of the recent David Letterman scandal plus a character who is a woman on a “View”-like talk show. They go on to say that “…the episode will revolve around a character named Vanessa Carville. In her late 30s to early 40s, she's a "well-known celebrity talk show host, married with children" who -- here comes "The View" riff -- "along with a panel of other women, hosts a daily talk show…. Over the course of a few years, she has had a series of short-lived affairs with some of the employees on the show and up until now has managed to keep them off the radar. Now she has been approached by a blackmailer who threatens to expose private photos & emails of hers unless she pays three million dollars. Vanessa turns to DA Jack McCoy for help. She eventually decides to drop the charges, in order to spare herself and the women she had affairs with of the embarrassment of having their private affairs made public."

I wonder if anywhere in the episode they can squeeze in the infamous, "Is this because I'm a lesbian? line? Then again, I think hearing that line on this show once is quite enough.

I don’t have information on the name of this episode as yet. You can read the full story on
