So is Linus Roache leaving 'Law and Order?'  
Seriously, I can't help but wonder. Cutter has barely won any cases, and when he does it's either by the skin of his teeth, still has horrible consequences or is through no legal maneuvering of his own. I don't think it's that huge of a spoiler to say that one of the above four happened in the latest episode.

Tonight, it was Lupo and then Connie's manueverings that got first Marvy where they needed him and then the Reverend saying what he needed to on the stand. Cutter basically stood around. Oh, except when he cross-examined the Reverend the first time and hurt Jack's campaign (AGAIN!) by allowing the opposition to use his cross to say that the D.A.'s office thinks that devout Christians are liars and perjurers.

So, I mean, seriously? I'm not in the loop with L&O spoilers at all, but I'm honestly beginning to wonder if all of these failures of Mike Cutter (I can not for the life of me recall the last time he had a strong, solid win based on his skill ... even in part!) is some season-long arc leading to him leaving the D.A.'s office.

Obviously, I'll still watch the show. If I'm watching it after losing Michael Moriarty and Angie Harmon, I'm pretty much gonna stick through it through whatever cast change, but I'll miss Loache, and I kinda want to be prepared.

They are definitely setting up something. Not sure if it's Jack's departure or Cutter's. There's a different vibe to this season. They aren't winning the cases. They frequently have their backs against the walls, outsmarted by the criminals. I don't like this! I missed the conclusion of the case last night because something else drew my attention away. It's been a long time since that happened.

Yeah, it's getting disheartening at this point. I am feeling so bad for Cutter and I'm getting afeared that it means that he's leaving at the end of the season. I hadn't thought it being heralding Jack's though. Hmmm.
