  • Robin Williams shows his amazing talent for serious acting roles, playing an engineer who encourages and teaches people to question authority, often with lessons that cross the line.

    Possibly the best episode of season 9. The episode begins with a fast-food manager who, thinking he is assisting police, strip searches an employee. Trying to find the supposed detective who gave the orders, the SVU team finally lands on an engineer (played by Robin Williams). Found not guilty at trial, he goes on to stir up a "No Sheep" movement, urging the questioning of authority (Among the scenes I will never forget include Munch partaking in the mass pillow fight).

    However, the team stumbles upon evidence that he may have killed the doctor who, by refusing to perform a c-section, caused the death of his wife and newborn son. A perfect ending as well.
