Wow, I didn't like this episode at all. I'm tired of these relgious episodes...no offense!! Let's do something more exciting Walon Green..Wheeler and Nichols epis are better IMHO..I did however love Vince's intensity at the end...he's always fantatic..

I'm kind of tired of the religious episodes too - and I'm a religious person. I will say that all of the L&O shows are really good at being respectful of people of faith (any faith); with most being portrayed as imperfect, yet well-meaning people, and the fanatics being portrayed as extremists who have a very skewed idea of the scriptures of their religion. Case in point was last night's epi. Those who wrote Bobby's lines were spot-on about the Abraham and Isaac story, especially the fact that God ultimately commanded Abraham to spare Isaac - the fact that saved the girl.

That having been said, I again admit being a little tired of the religious thing, but then I think they are doing it on purpose.. Here is my prediction: Because Vincent's contract is up at the end of this season, they are setting up Bobby's out. I think he is going to depart from his cynicism and reconnect with his faith, which in turn will help him connect with his niece and compel the religious foster(?) parents to o.k. him adopting her.

I also think the W/N epis are better, but I think that is bc they are so focused on writing for Bobby on the G/E epis. W/N epis are more light-hearted with partner banter, like G/E epis used to be. And speaking of Eames, the focus on Bobby has made her almost non-existent. Despite my love for Vincent, I would hate for the last season to turn into "The Bobby Goren" show. What worries me most, though, is that there are only 3 epis left with Detective Robert Goren and they haven't tied up some loose ends yet: 1) Who put the rat in his desk? 2) Have he and Alex officially reconciled over the undercover thing? and 3) Is he going to find Donnie?

On a more complimentary note - Yes!, Vincent's performance was superb again. I am starting to think that he never gets the nod for Oscars or Emmys bc the rest of the industry knows that if his talents are broadcast too far and wide, it will call attention to the whole world that every other actor pales in comparison to Mr. D'Onofrio. Also, it is indeed really great to see Bobby back to his old self!

I,too have heard Vincent is leaving the show after this season. Will be hard to watch without him, not to sound mean, Jeff Goldblum is good, but Vincent is better. I don't mind the religious episodes. This one was done well by everyone. Would like to see "Alex" in more. Kathryn Erbe is a great actress too!

I have heard nothing to suggest he is leaving ( they seem to be bandying that about a lot) as far as Vincent has said he is staying as long as people want him to stay, plus with 3 children to support and the high pay that the show gives him he is hardly going to chuck that away by returning to just movies. I also recall him saying on the Utah thing that there was another season in the can at least. I think that there are only so many things they can write about, and I guess that the theme this season is family and religeon for Goren and Eames and street gangs and music for Wheeler and Nichols.

I always enjoy the episodes dealing with issues of faith, and this one was no exception! Well done! Bravo!

In regards to if Vincent is going to stay with the show or not, I don't think it's always a money thing, I think he'll go where his heart takes him.

I have never understood why, when Vincent has REPEATEDLY said he'll stay with the show as long as the show is there, he's constantly 'disbelieved', especially after 8 years!! As far as I remember, ALL of the actor's contracts were 'up' on Vincent's birthday last year. I haven't yet seen anything about the SAG negotiations being completed, yet there's still been a season 8...and as has been pointed out, Vincent DID say in December that they have 'another season' It's 'that' time of year again of course, when we're waiting on renewal, so everyone is entitled to have an opinion or speculate on what might or might not happen, but until there's an OFFICIAL announcement from USA, that's all it is - speculation and personal opinion, so can we please not have a funeral before the patient is dead.
