Law & Order: SVU

Episode 11.15 - March 3, 2010

Lee Tergesen played Billy Skaggs, a psycho preacher, in this episode of "Law & Order: SVU," which reunited him with "Oz" co-star Christopher Meloni. 

"Savior" was the second hour of a two-hour block of SVU episodes on March 3 on NBC TV in the United States. Lucky Canadians got to see the episode on March 2 on CTV!

The episode also stars Mischa Barton, former series regular on "The O.C." She plays a hooker who escaped the clutches of the "freaky deacon" only have to confront him in the courtroom.

However, the best confrontation comes in the interrogation room between the old friends and castmates (not to mention cellmates!). Lee and Chris share a prayer, forehead to forehead, in Detective Stabler's effort to get the suspect to confess.

"Chris and Lee have a pretty intense scene," SVU executive producer Neal Baer said in promoting the show. And he provided the photographic evidence on his Twitter account in the weeks leading up to broadcast.

Here's the original scoop about Lee's appearance, according to a Michael Ausiello item on EW.com:

It’s a reunion seven years in the making...

Lee Tergesen is reteaming with ex-Oz lover Chris Meloni in an upcoming episode of "Law & Order: SVU," sources confirm to me exclusively.

Tergesen is playing a deranged religious zealot suspected of murder. An SVU insider says you can expect “lots of sweaty interrogation scenes between Meloni and Tergesen.” Just like old times!

This will mark the first time Meloni and Tergesen have worked together since "Oz" went off the air in 2003.
