  • Season Two Finale

    BEST EPISODE EVER! I cried when Keller and Schillinger broke Beecher's legs...heartbreaking. Then Beecher's final look of furiosity and Keller's reflective and possibly regretful look at Beecher's empty bed. Chris Meloni and Lee Tergesen sizzle, even in brutality, and J.K. Simmons can play evil like no other. Genius!
    Another character favorite, Ryan O'Reily, finally admits to having Cyril kill Dr. Nathan's husband in order to protect Cyril from Schillinger and the rest of Oz. That buzzed haircut is so sexy, as is Dean Winters in a tank top! We finally learn that Ryan is a little human after all, but no too much!
