Barek and Logan meet their own Nemises.
25 May 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I agree with the comments above - All the players were excellent and it should have been a two parter. We have only just seen the episode in the UK on terrestrial TV and it was superb.

The character that Whoopi plays should turn out as Barek and Logan's equivalent of Eames and Goren's nemesis, Nicole Wallace, played chillingly by Olivia D'Abo.

It appears that the makers of L&O:CI have left what could promise to be a very strong character plot line, dangling in mid-air. What was that about Deakins and Officer Martinez? What happens after Watkins' arraignment? What happens to the boys? ...And what happens to the other boys out there that she influenced? How far into government does her influence spread, because it was obvious that she had an entry into the NYPD.

Her ability to out-think, outsmart and manipulate officialdom is brilliant - it's Nicole all over again, except there is a much, much darker side to Watkins that is just plain frightening.

There is much more development for Whoopi's character and her battle with Logan, which turned personal in this episode, so...
