When an online video blogger, WeepingWillow17 is kidnapped while her camera is rolling, the entire world starts watching to see what happens next. There is extreme speculation as to whether or not this is the truth or an internet hoax. Willow starts to beg for her boyfriend Holden's life and ask for the help of the public by downloading her videos in order to make ransom money. Detectives Logan and Wheeler really start to wonder what is going on when a former classmate of Holden's outs them and says that they are con artists.
This was a great episode. It was nice to see one of the Law and Order shows to have a storyline such as this. There have been several stories in the news of online video bloggers who post videos where they are acting. They have passed their videos off as real when they are actually just doing it for fun or even for money. Though I have not heard of any of these bloggers going as far as to pretend a hostage situation such as this, it still makes you a little curious as to why people would even bother.
