How Every Case Ended on Law & Order


A crowd sourced project to find out how each case on Law & Order ended has finished and OverThinkingIt.com has the graph. That’s 450 episodes of the series, meaning 450 different cases. What’s odd is only about 33% of cases ended in plea bargains. If Law & Order actually ripped stories from the headlines, it’d be closer to 100%.

And not a single case of Union corruption or homosexual perjury.

I wonder how many episodes ending with Ice-T rubbing his forehead saying, "Remember when I used to have street cred?"

Spoiler alert:  It always ends with the black guy pleading out as the unwitting pawn of the Upper East Side white mastermind.....  They're coming for YOU, Bennington.

Here's how every episode ends: "Hey, it's the guy that you originally thought did it, but then we changed your mind, and now he's going to jail"

Every time I watched that old dude was saying "make the deal" and they never executed anyone, this would have been better as a Texas show, law&order&kill

McCoy: Your grief might be a little more convincing, sir, if you hadn't just admitted you cut off your wife's head.
