Captain Cragen on the spot
17 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

Back when Dann Florek was in command of the detectives at the 15th precinct before he moved to SVU, he got into quite a jackpot because of his closeness to a man who is now got the rank of Chief. Robert Lansing was a good rabbi to have back in the day, but now Florek's very closeness to Lansing is making him look like the guy who might have tanked a case that Michael Moriarty was prosecuting.

The episode itself also tells you why he was a ridiculous candidate in the first place, Florek freely admits he doesn't have the computer skills to erase a disc where shady financial transactions are recorded. It was stupid of Internal Affirs detective Gerry Bamman to have been looking at him at all.

Where it gets good is Florek wrestles with his conscience all throughout the show as to why he won't turn on his friend Lansing. Still it is a matter of survival.

Good thing he had detectives George Dzundza and Chris Noth working on his behalf.
