USA outline the return of Vincent D’Onofrio to ‘Law & Order: Criminal Intent’

It was way back in September of last year when I first wrote about USA’s plans for a final tenth season of Law & Order: Criminal Intent – at the time is was announced that the show would be eight episodes long and would see the return of original star Vincent D’Onofrio.

Well now USA have, as part of their Spring line-up preview, released the full synopsis for the final season:

Season ten features the long-anticipated return of Detectives Robert Goren (Vincent D’Onofrio) and Alex Eames (Kathryn Erbe) to the Major Case Squad. Terminated for insubordination a year ago, Detective Goren has been reunited with his long-time partner Alex Eames at the behest of the new Major Case Captain. In addition to plunging into colorful, dangerous mysteries, Goren has mandatory sessions with a brilliant police psychologist. In this final eight episode arc that will ultimately help Goren understand his tortured past and chart a course for a successful future.

Storylines for this season include a beautiful female banker whose sole client was the Catholic Church; an adventuresome rogue who may be the country’s best cyber-warrior; a woman who was blackmailing a wealthy, tabloid-fodder “bad boy.” Rather than forensics or strict procedure, these murders will be solved in the style CI fans have come to know and love: Goren’s Holmesian deduction of the deep psychology and byzantine motives for the crime. With the help of his friend and partner Eames, we’ll be in for a season of twisty plots, uniquely New York worlds, clever deductions, and dazzling operatic interrogations that ultimately bring the guilty to justice.

It seems this final tenth season is returning the series to its superb NBC-era roots. As a huge fan of Law & Order: Criminal Intent even I have to admit that the show hasn’t been the same since it moved to USA – here’s hoping these final eight episodes give the show the send off it deserves!

Interesting, although I wish they would stop psycho-analizing Goren all the time. I mean how many Psyche consults does the man need-so he is a little eccentric and unorthodox but he is perfectly sane.
