According to TV Guide, Executive producer Warren Leight joked about the controversial plot that left many fans on the edge of their seats in the season 13.
"He should have not put a dead hooker in his bed. Even if we know Capt. Cragen, it's just never good to wake up with a dead hooker in your bed. That means you did something wrong."
While Cragen (Dann Florek) will be investigated, Detective Benson (Mariska Hargitay) will work overtime to help prove his innocence. However, Benson will have an interim captain played by Adam Baldwin watching her every move. Considered a fixer, Baldwin's character is someone who is skilled at deciphering the corrupt individuals from the honest ones. As the female detective gets closer and closer to unraveling the truth about Cragen, she will ultimately find out what Leight is calling the theme of the program, that "everybody has secrets."
Paget Brewster will make a guest appearance on the show and don the role of Paula Foster, the head of the D.A's public integrity unit. She will lead a renegade group that will work on getting Cragen freed.
Although fans should not expect a long drawn out resolution to the respective plot, Leight stated to the site that the current storyline will not be rushed.
"Some things are resolved, but there are long-lasting repercussions. It's not Homeland. I admire and I envy their schedule, but I can't drag it out for 23 episodes. What we're trying to do is maintain continuity from one episode to the next."
The season 14 premiere of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" will air on Wed., Sept. 26th at 9 PM ET on NBC.
