I was surprised that the lady was so willing to give up the information after Stabler decided not to go along with the ruse and tell her the truth. And then decides to hug him TWICE. Sort of confusing, but then again, when your ass is a trending topic on Twitter yesterday (I am not kidding), i'd be hugging him too!
I am liking the crime aspect itself, and I like think Stabler will feel that Bell is more in tune with him that Cragen ever was. She knows about the phone, she's not thrilled, but she's not going to rat him out. The big meeting with Wheatley and everyone at the club I didn't care for (and I can't remember the last time I saw someone smoking a cigarette on broadcast TV) and I'm thinking of those kids will be dead by the time this arc wraps up.
I think it was more not to mention that "my racist grand dad that my dad disassociated from was a mob boss!" and the mess that comes with it.
Not only do I think he's a mole, I have a feeling he was one of the goons that attacked Stabler at the end (and the way Stabler was eyeing him before he was pistol whipped reinforced it.) He is around that height.
