Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 3: A Quick Recap
The season started with a girl being shot, and Cosgrove teams with Det. Jalen Shaw to track down her killer; Benson and Stabler assist and realize it’s more than a typical homicide; and McCoy and Price seek justice against an international crime ring. As ground breaks on the city’s first casino, Stabler investigates the death of a friend whose refusal to sell his home on the site has stalled construction. Jet brings in two new detectives, and Bell splits her focus between work and her looming divorce.
Stabler, Bell, and the task force scramble to track down a murderer before he takes desperate action; Jamie blames himself when a mistake leads to further tragedy; and Jet makes a crucial discovery that could save a child’s life. With a suspect in custody for Henry Cole’s murder, Reyes goes undercover at Rikers to gather more information from him. Pearl and Teddy make a difficult decision to ensure construction on the casino stays on schedule.
While Stabler is called to testify against the brotherhood in court, the task force sets its sights on a dangerous criminal gang posing as police; Reyes finds a surprising connection to the suspects; and Bell receives some unwelcome news. After the task force is caught in a shootout, Stabler is on a mission to find out how the perps are connected to the NYPD. As, Reyes is determined to put the aggressors of his past behind bars, even if it means going against orders.
The task force goes undercover to bust a jewelry operation they come to realize isn’t just smuggling gold; an unexpected guest from Stabler’s past arrives to help take the operation down and confront some unresolved feelings. When Pearl falls mysteriously ill, the task force is dragged back into the corruption of New York’s first casino development. Later, we learn that Bell has tried to keep rumors from swirling when an important decision must be made.
The fate of the task force is at stake when a meeting with Robert Silas goes sideways. With danger closing in, Bell and Stabler take creative measures to keep their team alive. When an informant comes to Stabler desperate for help, the task force sets its sights on a dangerous gang making its mark on New York; Jamie goes undercover but soon realizes he may be in over his head. Bell meets her new boss. Jamie makes a risky decision that could cost him more than the case.
Stabler bristles at the arrival of two Miami detectives offering to help with the investigation, and the task force learns the limits of the new deputy inspector’s influence. After learning that an untouchable crime boss may have been behind her former partner’s death, Bell enlists the task force to take him down; Stabler is recruited for a secret mission of his own. Stabler and Teddy Silas hatch a plan to turn the club into an indispensable venue for Murphy’s illegal dealings.
Jet blurs the lines between real life and her undercover persona, and Bell tries to convince Thurman to take her investigation seriously. When a member of the task force goes missing, Teddy takes advantage of the chaos to make his escape, and Bell secures a key piece of evidence in her case against Murphy. After the daughter of Stabler’s former Marine buddy is kidnapped, the task force must help settle a dangerous dispute between two rival biker gangs wrapped up in a deadly scheme.
When a city council candidate’s fundraiser ends in an assassination attempt, Stabler makes it a top priority to find the culprit; despite Thurman’s orders, the local precinct captain is reluctant to let Bell’s team take the lead. A father desperate to find his son helps Stabler uncover a sinister human trafficking operation; Bell’s investigation is undermined by a high-powered politician. When a drug bust goes sideways, the task force uncovers a sinister robbery scheme targeting gay men.
Bell vows to help a fellow officer when he falls victim to the scheme. The team scrambles to find the group responsible for an assassination attempt on a UN diplomat; Whelan and Reyes find a clue in the depths of the city’s tunnel system. Stabler balances the investigation with his mother’s increasing need for support. The Feds call in Bell and Stabler when they suspect a gruesome murder could be connected to a string of bank robberies.
In the end, when a DNA match is tied to a suspect with the perfect alibi. The team struggles to make a case against him. When DNA from an SVU rape investigation connects to an unsolved OCCB murder, Stabler and Benson uncover a revenge-for-hire scheme on the dark web, and Bell and Jet follow the money trail to expose the website’s anonymous creator. There’s a reason why the finale episode is anticipated as the show features a “single-arc” storyline that takes multiple episodes to resolve.
