Law & Order: Criminal Intent Season 5 Episodes

22 Episodes 2005 - 2006

Season 5 of the crime procedural sees NYPD Major Case Squad detectives Robert Goren (Vincent D'Onofrio) and Alexandra Eames (Kathryn Erbe) alternate cases with original "Law & Order" detective Mike Logan and his partner, Carolyn Barek (Annabella Sciorra). The season opens with the return of Goren's arch-nemesis, Nicole Wallace (Olivia d'Abo), who may be looking for a big payday from her new fiancé's daughter. Later, in his first case, Logan's methods raise concern when he and Barek look into a string of robbery-murders at small jewelry stores. Among the season's other cases: the mutilation of a female medical student; the shooting death of a businessman; the slaying of a Secret Service agent; and a string of church arsons. In addition to d'Abo, guest stars include Whoopi Goldberg, David Keith, Malcolm McDowell and Colm Meaney; and, from the original "Law & Order," Fred Thompson as D.A. Arthur Branch and Carolyn McCormick as Dr. Elizabeth Olivet.
