When Law & Order: SVU‘s Finn finds himself in danger this May, an old friend will be around to lend a hand.
Kathryn Erbe‘s Det. Alexandra Eames will make her second appearance of the season in the May 8 episode, executive producer Warren Leight tells TVLine exclusively.
The Law & Order: Criminal Intent mainstay will show up when someone related to Finn’s past as a narcotics officer begins causing trouble for the SVU detective . What happens is “so big, she’s called in,” Leights says, adding that the idea for the episode originated with its star Ice T.
“He said, ‘I saw after that Rollins-and-her-sister episode, the fans really like it when we’re in harm’s way,” the EP recalls. “‘And don’t forget, I used to be a narcotics officer. There’s got to be a lot of people who want me dead.’”
Hip-hop artist 2 Chainz also appears in the episode as “someone Finn dealt with in the past,” Leight says. “There’s a lot of bad blood from Finn’s past involved in it.”
Emilio Rivera (Sons of Anarchy), Yul Vasquez (Magic City) and Cathy Moriarty (Raging Bull) also appear in the episode.
