Episode Summary

When a rape victim is brought to the E.R. after a brutal and lengthy assault, Detective Benson recognizes the signature of a rapist on whom she believed the book had been closed eight years ago. The team must reopen the case to rule out whether there was a wrongful conviction back then, or they are dealing with a copycat now. Things only get worse when ADA Haden and Bayard Ellis square off against each other and Benson while she agonizes over how the case was handled and if she played a part in destroying a man's life.

  • Solid Storyline

    8.0
    Just finished watching this episode of L&O:SVU. It is one of the show's better episodes. It was a good emotional performance from Guillermo Diaz. As far as the details being a turning point in the episode, I especially liked the scarf detail. We also get to see Benson's personal life, which is nice break from the case. But the final scene was unnecessary. Harry Connick Jr. does a good job as an ADA Haden. Also liked the fact the Detective Amaro stuck to his guns about his opinion on Pena. He is a good partner for Olivia because he can stand up to her as well as complement her. It was a good episode with a solid storyline.moreless
  • One redeeming point...

    ... the most chemistry-free "romance" in recent TV history is finally over.



    @thefanof Haven't you heard? When Belzer extended his contract, he added an opt-out clause: "If I receive a script that insults the intelligence of everyone involved, I don't have to show up for work and will volunteer instead -- as penance on W. Leight's behalf -- at the local soup kitchen."

    They tried to give us something unique with a past case being revisited, but it just did not work. They did not even care at the end that Pena was freed, it was more about Olivia's breakup. As for Pena, guest star Guillermo Diaz was too over the top for this role.



    And where has Munch been? Finn mentioned him, but we haven't seen him.



    They tried with an interesting premise, but the execution just was not there.moreless
