[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 3 Episode 10 “Trap.”]

Detective Jamie Whelan’s (Brent Antonello) first undercover operation goes sideways, of course.

The winter premiere of Law & Order: Organized Crime introduces a new arc involving a Miami gang looking to make a name for themselves as drug dealers in New York; Jamie goes undercover as a driver after they kidnap the wife of one of Detective Elliot Stabler’s (Christopher Meloni) informants. But in the final moments, Jamie drops the cable and then leaves the meeting point to go somewhere else with the gang — and also has to lose her tail (Rick Gonzalez Detective Bobby Reyes and Ainsley Seiger’s Detective Jet Slootmaekers, who acted as his support function) .

Antonello teases what’s in store for Jamie during this next arc.

Jamie’s decision to cut the wire was probably the right move, but it means he’s now out of touch with the others. What made him do this? Will he regret it?

Brent Antonello: It’s just, especially those moments when he’s alone in that warehouse, all instinct. He has to throw the cable away because if they find it they’ll shoot him on the spot and he can’t have that and the case has to move on. But yeah, once he sees Sherie I guess it’s all instinct. From this point in this episode to the next episode and arc, it’s all instinct and he has no idea. He can’t speak to them now. You don’t know where he is right now and it’s just about doing the job as best as possible and we’ll see what happens with that.

This is his first undercover operation and it’s like everything that could go wrong went wrong within minutes – he snapped the wire and then they say we’re moving somewhere else.

Of course it couldn’t go smoothly.

But how does he feel at the end of the episode? Does he still have as much control as he can?

I would say he’s trying his best. I think in the following episode you’ll start to see how Jamie behaves in these situations, little behaviors if you will, what he does to calm himself that we haven’t seen yet. But he definitely goes one step further, knows the pressure of the situation but doesn’t panic. There is no room for panic because if you panic it’s over, you’re dead or the victim is dead and that’s it. So he’s definitely filling that pressure that he might be feeling but not showing.

What’s next for this case?

We’ve got two Miami detectives trying to help the organization [Deputy Inspector] Thurman’s [James Roch] Help. They like Jamie what he’s doing on the case, but Stabler doesn’t really like it when two detectives come in and work the case with us, so there’s kind of an energy shift. But they give Jamie some credits for what he does and that’s the acceptance he wanted from Stabler and [Sergeant] Bell jar [Danielle Moné Truitt] that he didn’t get. So he switches a bit and goes to people who are praising him or saying, “Hey, the reason we’re here is because of you, you helped us.” So it’s that acceptance thing that he’s riding with and that he doesn’t get.

What does that mean about what we’ll see covered with him? Because it sounds like when he gets that acceptance, he’s more likely to take risks, because risk-taking got him to that position.

Yes, exactly. And then he gets pushed off the case, which he didn’t want, especially in a way that Stabler was performing. Then we have that tension between Jamie and Stabler that you’re going to see, that whole ‘You’ve been like this in the past, why can’t I do that? Is this a generation thing or what is it? Because you did exactly what I did and nobody yelled at you for it. But it’s kind of like you’re a hypocrite right now,” which is great to play because we didn’t see Jamie and Stabler get into an argument — an argument that needs to happen, especially for the Christmas episode. There is some tension between them.

This episode talked a bit about comparisons between Jamie and Stabler. Based on what’s coming, does that change at all how Jamie sees these comparisons?

I don’t think so because he looks up to him for it. I think it’s more like he’s just injured. He’s hurt because he doesn’t get the promise. He’s hurt because he was pushed off the case in a certain way. He finds that disrespectful. It’s like your hero just telling you, “You didn’t perform well in the game, bench it, bench it, you’re done.” And Jamie doesn’t take it well at all. So I think it’s more of a hurt thing that we’ll see because that father figure mentor relationship goes on and it just really rubs him in the wrong direction.

What does this mean for the Jamie and Bell dynamic?

It’s very clear to her that he needs to get off the case. He’s a joker, he’ll get killed, he’ll have someone killed. We’re going to ruin the case. He has to sit down. But at that moment, Stabler says, “I understand what you’re saying, Bell, but he’s doing what he’s supposed to do,” so that doesn’t really give Stabler room to talk.

There’s a lot of tension between the three of them in this episode about how he was pulled off the case, how he was supposed to be on the case, how he was supposed to be yanked out of the investigation. So it’s a cool dynamic. There’s really a lot of stuff happening in the next two episodes that we haven’t really touched on in terms of relationships, action and stuff like that, which is cool.

Due to these similarities between Jamie and Stabler, Stabler is in the process of seeing a therapist. Could that be something Jamie should consider, especially after this undercover stint?

It could. We could definitely go in that direction. I know a few things that we’re trying to uncover as far as Jamie’s background and stuff like that. I could definitely see that happening. We’ll find out. But I love that anyway. I love how we’re starting to explore more and more people’s backgrounds for all of the characters. It’s really cool to see.

What will we see about Jamie’s background and personal life?

I wish I could tell you because I know a few things that we possibly could [see]. We sort of figure it out because it was so quick — I wouldn’t say casting, but to get on this show we found ourselves, which is cool because we’re playing in real time. So a lot has happened and changed, and we’ve been trying to find our way.

But I think there’s a lot of cool stuff with all the characters where we’re finally going to see some background, some backstory on why the characters are the way they are, and most importantly delve more into Bobby and Jamie, what’s up was fun to play and see this relationship. So I have a feeling that everyone is going to get a moment or two this season where we can really see their backstory.

It seems like Jamie and Bobby just got thrown into everything and there’s the whole thing with the task force they weren’t a part of…

Yes. We will see some things that are worth playing.
