Stabler got somebody to hack the burner cell phone and headed to a storage facility that Lenski had frequented. At the constructing, Stabler figured out that a hookah place there was owned by a person nicknamed Raffi the Poet, a.k.a. Rafiq, who was murdered. For some rationale, Stabler’s ID was found at the warehouse.
The detective satisfied up with Rafiq’s mom, Angela Wheatley (Bones‘ Tamara Taylor), who shared that her ex passed together his compound difficulties to Rafiq. Immediately after that, Stabler attended Kathy’s funeral, as did Liv, wherever Stabler’s son Eli was particularly bereft.
Stabler satisfied up with the warehouse owner, a mobster named Sinatra (Chaz Palminteri), who denied obtaining nearly anything to do with the bombing that killed Kathy. We also satisfied Sinatra’s smug son Richard (Dylan McDermott), who was also up to one thing in Puglia, Italy.
Afterwards, when Stabler was chatting with Angela, somebody on a moped fired a gun at them in an apparent try on the detective’s existence. Soon immediately after, all Stabler could consider about was a concept he acquired for somebody declaring to know who killed Kathy. Stabler hurried to Coney Island to meet the thriller concept-sender.
Also hanging out at the Question Wheel had been Sinatra and Richard, and by the time Stabler got to the amusement park, Sinatra had finished up useless. Then, we noticed Richard at residence, and Angela was there as well, wherever the two got rather cozy.
Ultimately, it was time to get the information we needed: the friggin’ letter. Absolutely sure adequate, Liv informed Stabler she study it and desired to explore it—gasp!—but he was much too distraught around discovering Sinatra’s overall body. Communicate about awful timing.
And so the letter thriller finished on a cliffhanger, which did not make us content. But as minimum we got plenty of chaotic Stabler-Benson vitality, proper?
