Storyline

Arriving in New York from Sri Lanka, political activist, Bela Khan, is in the States to visit her ailing mother, and speak at a political rally. While leaving the rally, assassin, Bhatt Tom, attempts to kill her but misses and kills her personal assistant, Rosemary Shaw, instead. The assassin is killed by her body guard, Gil. Detectives soon discover that it was the body guard, Gil, who planned the exit through the kitchen, to set up Bela for the hit, in exchange for getting his brother off of death row. When he is assassinated while in custody, Logan and Wheeler turn their attentions to members of the the Khan family itself, as possibly being behind the hits, and must figure out who is pulling the strings, and who the real target is before it's too late.

Did You Know?

Goofs

The rifle used to kill Gil, the bodyguard is said to be a "Custom US Survivor Sniper Rifle." The rifle is actually a US Survival rifle which are only chambered in .22LR. The magazine and bolt shown are consistent with a rifle chambered in .22LR. The only custom pieces are the grip and butt stock. A shot from that rifle (.22LR) would not do anywhere near the damage depicted, and certainly would not exit the victims chest in such a dramatic fashion. It would be far more likely that the bullet would stay in the chest, and probably would not kill the victim at all and would leave very little (if any) blood anywhere on the scene. See more »

Mike's Role in "Assassination"
29 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a loyal Law and Order fan, I can say that "Assassination" is one of your best episodes. The plot is politically current with the signature Law and Order "twist". It was

interesting to me as I looked through the various aspects of this episode to see more information that was posted on the tech, Mike. Especially, in this day and age of women taking a more active role, i.e. witness Hillary's bid for the presidency and the positive effect it had on sixteen million women, it is wonderful to see strong, competent women making contributions to solving cases on "Criminal Intent". I was disappointed that Mike's role was not more in depth as I would have liked to find out more of the technical information regarding ballistics that Mike helped detectives with in past cases and I look forward to seeing more of her input in future episodes.
