Season 1 Episode 6 Recap

The previous episode opens with a flashback scene where we see Ayana Bell’s (Danielle Mone Truitt) nephew, Damon (Danny Olabi), being a victim of police brutality. Meanwhile, Stabler finds out that Angela Wheatley was the killer of his wife. He reaches her home and arrests her for killing his wife.

Bekhar (Ibrahim Renno), the head of Wheatley’s security and double agent for cops, tells the main protagonist about Wheatley’s entire operation. He says that COVID-19 might get over by next year, but it still gives Wheatley a lot of time to make billions off of vaccines.

Stabler finally talks to Angela and she said that she killed his wife because of desperation. She tells Stabler that her son Rafik was killed during an operation and Richard told her that Stabler was the reason why her son died. However, Stabler says that her son was working for Richard and helped him in making the Purple Magic drug. But Richard found out that Rafik was selling the drug and cutting into Wheatley’s profit. Stabler says Rafik was caught by Wheatley, who then shot him between the eyes. Angela is shaken.

The show ends with the flashback scenes where it is seen that it was Richie (Nick Kreegan) who killed Gina (Charlotte Sullivan). Gianluca Silvano (Ivo Nandi) rounds out the episode as he arrives by helicopter for his setup deal with Wheatley. He joins Stabler in the waiting SUV, who asks him, “You ready to make a deal?"
