The series returns on Sunday, May 1 at 9/8c with the first of eight all new episodes. LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT, produced by Wolf Films and Universal Cable Productions, created and executive produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Dick Wolf, was developed by Ren� Balcer. Shot entirely in and around New York City, the third installment of the "Law & Order" franchise takes viewers deep into the minds of its criminals while following the intense psychological approaches by the Major Case Squad.

She was recently seen in David Lynch's "Inland Empire" as well as the features "Kit Kittredge: An American Girl," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "Guerrilla" and "Surveillance." She recently appeared in HBO's "Temple Grandin" which she won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie and "The Wronged Man" for Lifetime. She will next be seen on the big screen in "My Week With Marilyn" alongside Michelle Williams and Emma Watson. Ormond is repped by Gersh and Chris Prapha at Artists Independent.

The tenth season of LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT features the long-anticipated return of Detectives Goren (Vincent D'Onofrio) and Eames (Kathryn Erbe). A tribute to the passionate fans, the show will take viewers to new heights with intrigue and crime-solving as never before. Terminated for insubordination a year ago, Detective Goren has been reunited with his long-time partner at the behest of new Major Case Captain Joseph Hannah (Jay O. Sanders), a friend of Goren's since Academy days.

I'm sorry but I think this is just stupid. Bobby dealt with his 'tortured past' in season 7, why bring it up again. Please God don't let this turn into...Sad lonely detective falls in love with his shrink. Bobby deserves better than that.

Diane said...

I still don't understand why we have to actually SEE his shrink (not that he needs one!) when the one Eames saw remained comfortingly INVISIBLE. Let's hope the set up is she's very happily married with 4 children, a love of the beach Bobby hates - and at least one horse ;0)

Jane said...

I have to agree, I think raking over that again is a stupid idea but I guess it depends on how Vincent wants to play it, just as long as they don't go into it too much. At least he will have another ally with the Captain and that's a good thing. Julia is a great actress although she cries a lot in her movies, Benjemin Button was a great movie and worth seeing.

Kris Ann said...

Tess summed up my feelings beautifully. I like Julia Ormond, but I'm not looking forward to this aspect of the new season.

Sandy said...

Maybe it will be a good thing although I don't think he needs any help anymore either, but if it is required to get the badge and job back and back with his crime-fighting partner, I guess we will have to put up with it. Absolutely no romance with the shrink, don't need that!
