This week’s Law and Order: Organized Crime episode is titled “As Nottingham Was to Robin Hood.” As the cyberattacks cripple the city, Stabler believes that Wheatley may be a suspect. Meanwhile, Bernadette has a shocking visitor. And what’s that guy doing in Bernadette’s home? A famous hacker has broken out of prison, and the Feds have enlisted the now freed Wheatley to apprehend him.
Stabler realizes that McClane’s prison breakout code doesn’t match his own, so he asks Malachi to find the creator of the code. Meanwhile, McClane’s old partner, Richard Wheatley, is a top hacktivist. As a result, the three men must find him and stop him from doing it again. In the final episode of Season 5, we’ll see the three main characters try to solve this case.
In the season 2 finale, Stabler, a former hacker, almost kills Wheatley. Wheatley tells him that he lives inside Stabler’s head. Wheatley believes Stabler may be trying to knock him off his game, or he may have been distracted by the fake relationship with Angela plot. Whatever the case, Wheatley and McClane have a lot to discuss.
The season finale also reveals that Angela feigned injury to prove her innocence. But when the real killer is revealed, she’ll get her revenge and make Stabler pay for it. The episode’s plot is a perfect example of how the FBI is trying to get what it wants – and that’s the most important thing of all. If you’re a fan of the series, then this episode is definitely for you.
In a twist that will surprise you, the episode also introduces a new character. Former hacker Sebastian McClane is brought to Wheatley’s house after his heist. He’s trying to reclaim his fortune and win back Angela. But Stabler manages to sneak back into the house with the help of a mysterious gangster named Richard Wheatley.
Czernobog is trying to get hold of Wheatley’s cryptocurrency, and he threatens to release the inmates in return. Wheatley agrees to help the gang, and in exchange, he’s given a commendation from the FBI. However, it’s not a happy ending for the team. And the episode also introduces a new character to the group: the hacker himself.
After the prison hack, the OC team had trouble locating McClane. But when he finally did, he apologized to his ex-girlfriend Victoria and offered her money. Eventually, McClane surrendered, but Stabler suspected that Wheatley was working with McClane. Then Wheatley and McClane arranged a phone call with the governor. They wanted McClane to transfer the $200K into crypto and take over Kesha Jones’ account. When this didn’t work, the OC team was able to get McClane to come to his home and make him sign his surrender papers.
