    I know this was a repeat. But, what the heck! What was the purpose of ending the episode and not announcing the verdict??
    This was the episode where Billy Campbell is a teacher accused of raping a grad student. You are torn whether he really did it or not. And just as the verdict was to be announced the episode ends. [​IMG]

    When the show originally aired, there was a poll on NBC's website that allowed viewers to cast their own vote. My guess is that the verdict was not filmed. So that ending will be pissing viewers off in repeats for years to come.[​IMG]

    Thanks Paul...so do you think he was guilty? My wife and I kinda of sided with NOT guilty. Too much reasonable doubt. She lost tons of credibility with the Stabler accusation and the phony suicide attempt.

    I thought they shot two endings and aired the one the poll dictated the first time around. Is it possible they just screwed up with the rerun and didn't run either ending? I didn't see either broadcast, just vaguely remember reading about this bit of "stunt" programming (originally aired during sweeps if I recall.)

    I'm pretty sure the NBC poll resulted in a not guilty verdict.
