Disclaimer: Law & Order belongs to Dick Wolf. I make no money.

A/N: Yes, I know Lennie implied that Claire died on February 6th, but that doesn’t track with her being present when Ben Karmel confessed to killing his baby brother during the last scene of “Homesick,” which the title cards dated as Thursday, July 13th. Nor does it track with Van Buren asking Rey how Lennie’s doing (and if he’s going to his “meetings”) at the beginning of “Causa Mortis,” which is dated Wednesday, July 19th.
