    I enjoyed this alot more than I thought I would, and as I've said before I don't like Amauro as a person but as cop he's the only one who doesn't let the little things go that the others are eager to quickly dismiss as the guilty parties just trying to save themselves so for that I respect him


    Did not care for Rollins' reaction to charging the ringleaders as co-conspirators, she gave the impression she felt that sharking(or whatever it was called) was just a harmless teen prank in general when in reality it's sexual battery with a child porn component


    I've never understood people's need to be liked, every time i've ever heard the words "I just wanted (insert pronoun) to like me" it was always following something just plain stupid, thankful to have been raised in a household where independent thinking was encouraged demanded


    Confined space, low visibility, loud noise, limited exit points, packed with people consuming mind/mood altering substances. nothing about that sounds like a good time to me and this is coming from someone who once played of game of russian roulette in which someone 'lost' and routinely says "Hell Yeah!" before the other person finishes saying "do you wanna"

    I appreciated the writers' treatment of PTSD and how they wove it into the story. The squad could have dismissed the guy as one of the conspirators, but they let him work through his memories until the pieces fit. Great performances by Danny Pino and Kelly Giddish. They are top notch. The ending surprised me, but it makes sense that Amaro's wife has/had PTSD. I hope the marriage can be mended. However, the actress who plays Maria is in Go On, so if that's picked up she won't be able to spend much time filming SVU.

    Now that Go On has been cancelled, I wonder if we'll be seeing more of Maria Amaro. I hope so.
