Worst Plot Twist EVER

I spent yesterday doing two of my favorite things: knitting and watching a Law & Order marathon. Because I love the show, I am willing to cut them all kinds of slack, but this one is just too much.

In the final episode with ADA Serena Southerlyn (Elizabeth Röhm), District Attorney Arthur Branch fires her because she is not a good match for the DA's office. And she asks, "Is it because I'm a lesbian?" He tells her no, and she says "Good." How many seasons was she on L&O? There was never even an inkling that she was a lesbian--no reference, no relationship, no plot conflict including that detail. What idiot writer decided to throw that in as the last thing she said? Is she also an alien? The President of the United States? That's just shoddy scriptwriting; there's no excuse for Dick and his crew who've been doing this for sixteen years. Shame on you, guys. P.S. Knitting pictures will be forthcoming,b ut the light is horrible today with the rain.

I used to watch it religiously and I'd have never thought she was a lesbian. What a lame ending.

I'm telling you the last few seasons have been slipping.... Ever since Jerry Orbach left.....

NBC needs to get off their social soap box (ER does it alot too) and just shoot SHOWS!

How are you?
