Law & Order: This Thursday (3), NBC airs the season finale of Law & Order: Organized Crime, spin-off of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit starring Detective Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni).
And in a recent interview with TV Insider, Dylan McDermott, who plays the main antagonist of the production, revealed that the outcome of Season 1 will be quite intense.
There is high anticipation for a direct confrontation between Eliott and Richard Wheatley (McDermott), the CEO of a digital drug company that also operates in the underground market.
“I grew up in the world of organized crime. My mom’s boyfriend was a bank robber and later, when I moved to New York, there were mobsters around when I waited tables at a bar,” the actor revealed.
As the episodes were shown, the audience discovered that Stabler and Wheatley were also linked because of a sad event: the explosion that killed the wife of the lead detective was caused by the executive.
“Richard will do even more horrible things [before the season ends],” explained McDermott. “He was despised by his father for being overweight as a child. It scarred his psyche, leaving him to become a sociopath,” he argued.
