The midseason finale of Law & Order: Organized Crime was a wild watch and the next episode couldn't come fast enough.

The December 8 episode, titled "Last Christmas," was a holiday episode with a distinct lack of cheer as the OC Unit faced the looming threat of their entire Task Force getting shut down after Sgt. Ayanna Bell (Danielle Moné Truitt) was approached with a promotion. That means that all these cases the Task Force has yet to close throughout the season will be tossed to the side and reassigned. OC viewers waited to see whether or not Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) would step up to the plate and lead the force, but luckily, that wasn't necessary. Just as the detectives began to disband and explore other career options, Bell chose to stay with the OC Task Force, meaning they can all move forward with business as usual. Phew!
