"Assassin" Season 7, Episode 14

I am sure we are all saddened over the casting swap news involving Chris Noth, but at least we got to see Wheeler and Logan on the case last night! This new USA schedule for our L&O:CI in not cooperating with me well. Ha! But I did tape this last night and we have it up as soon as I can I promise (unlike last time). In the meantime, please feel free to comment away on the episode or your thoughts on Noth leaving. Also, if you didn't already be sure to read TV Guide's diagnosis of Det. Goren . Added recap: Bela Kahn, Sri Lankan ambassador, survives an assassination attempt thanks to her poor young personal assistant sacrificing her own life. Detectives Wheeler and Logan arrive on the scene to find the assassin was gunned down by Kahn's bodyguards, but not before he shot off a few rounds. At first the detectives believe that the bodyguard has something to do with it, as the shooter was waiting for them in the kitchen and it was his idea to leave that way. The story has some real family ties as another shooting takes place while Kahn is giving a speech and this time her brother is shot. We learn her brother and husband had a falling out of the finances of the family. This was a tangled web of who was pulling the strings to get everyone shot for the family trust and shocking in the end we learned it was none other than the main target Ms. Bela Kahn herself. As Logan said, "it was her destiny, it was already written." This was a great episode; full of twists though a little bittersweet knowing that there will not be many more with Det. Logan. He will be sorely missed, though the Sex in the City fan in me wonders if he will be partaking in the maybe sequel? -- Edited by Katie Bottner at 07/02/2008 6:54 PM show less
