Edward "Ed" Green was a homicide detective on Law & Order. He first appeared in 1999 in the episode "Gunshow". He was Lennie Briscoe's partner until Briscoe's retirement in 2004. After that, his new (Senior) partner became Detective Joe Fontana, followed by his promotion to Senior Detective and taking Nina Cassady and Cyrus Lupo as Junior Partners. Green retired in 2008 due to a shooting involving his past. He was replaced by Cyrus Lupo as Senior Partner. (L&O: "Burn Card") Green was a detective in Gang Intel. Unlike his predecessor, Detective Curtis, Detective Green's attitude as a cop was more aggressive and in ways like the style of Dirty Harry. This can be noted when Detective Green points his gun at a suspect who opened fire on college students (mostly women) and yells at him to confess without reading him the miranda warning. (L&O: "Gunshow"). He retires after being charged with a murder. While the charges are dropped when it is revealed he killed the suspect in defense of another person, he quits out of guilt for his actions when a person's secret that he was protecting comes out as a result despite the fact that he could have fought and won the case against him by the police department. (L&O: "Burn Card")
