  • women are being raped on the subway,the perp is carrying a knife around.the team search for a serial rapist.he is found and is put in a lineup which is ruined when the vics talk to each other when they arent supposed to. liv's date turn out to be twistedmoreless

    this episode was completely mind blowing i wasnt expecting any of it... so unpredictable.there are lots of scenes in this episode that stood out, like somebody said earlier it is one of the only episodes tht actually shows the rape being commited, which was very painful to watch as you can actually see the emotions the vic goes through during the rape aswell as after it.one of the scenes that hit me was when liv and el go to interveiw the most recent vic and she puts on a brave front but is broken when she actually relizes her pain! it also highlights the ignorance of some people who are not willing to come forward when it is obvious that they can help, like the fruit stall lady.

    So anyway olivia ends up going on a date with the reporter that is working with the detectives on the case.

    Nicky's comment about people not wanting to know olivia because of the job was totally out of order, however you could see that it really affected liv.So she ends up takin nicky home anyway and they made out which was cute but it turned into something horrible for liv when nicky wants to act out his fantasies about being the subway rapist. You can actually see the terror in her eyes, just for a second. she was totally freaked.so she asks him to leave,only to make things worse for her he peeks at her confidential files!which lands her in trouble, she gets her revenge by embarrasing him in front of his collegues...i personally dont think that was not enough. this is why i think liv should have a huge boyfriend as in muscle wise...i mean she is like a super hero at work but everyone needs to be taken care of sometimes.

    i love the way munch was able to connect with sidra the victim that was pregnant and not to mention in denial. he is just so sweet and caring. i think he is especially good with the youung females 20s- 30s maybe i think this is because they see him as a father figure.???moreless

    This episode was graphic. It actually showed a rape taking place on public transit! Nobody even noticed what was going on. The perp ran off on the next stop. Detectives discovered that this happened to a lot of women. When they brought the women to ID the perp they all said different numbers. More and more attacks occurred but still nothing. Benson was also very out of character this episode. She was flirting with a news reporter she gave confidential information to. They went to her apartment and they were very close to actually having sex before the reporter told her to picture him as the perp and here as the victim. Overall this episode was awesome.moreless
  • A great episode.

    This episode was rather dark and disturbing. What if a man could rape a woman in day light, in front of loads of people and still escape? Well that is what happens in this episode. A rapist is attacking women on busy trains and getting away with it. This was a sick and twisted thing to do and i am glad they caught the guy. But it is shocking to think that people will just watch and do nothing. Overall this was another great episode. So far this has proven to be a great season. I cannot wait to watch the next episode.moreless
  • Law and Order Special Victims Unit!

    9.5
    When seven women are raped on the subway within a six month period, the Detectives of the Special Victims Unit are presured to find the perp before he strikes again. Once they find a suspect, they are finally able to put him away when he confesses to the rapes after seeing that one of his first victims is pregnant. This was a great episode of Law and Order Special Victims Unit! The storyline was something that I have come to expect from the writers of the show. This definitely has to be on my list of personal favorite episodes.moreless
