This episode deals with the many different aspects of rape. There's the limitations of the legal system: how long can an accusation of rape be handled fairly to everyone involved? (Even one of the victims has her doubts.) There's the psychological element: victims react differently to this degrading crime. They can become aggressive, guilt-ridden or very sensitive; what do they need for 'closure'? There's the police problem: should every complaint be treated with the same attention? Interviews with former SVU detectives pointed to the unbearable burden of dealing with constant depravity. Politics can play a role: when a politician takes a rape case to make a point, the police have to put everything else aside to save their reputation, creating more stress. All these themes are fluently brought together in a single episode, some just mentioned in one brief piece of dialogue. The only storyline I found 'overdone' was the reaction of the victim who had found religion. But the surprising ending more than made up for that.
