This is the worst episode of SVU I have seen. Not one part of this story line seemed plausable. The staged rapes were just too over the top. This is an area that SVU has touched on befor and in prior instances the writers/directors handle these well. Not so with this episode. Plus the Munchausin Syndrom angle seems way over played as well.
Rebecca DeMorney, who's work I love, seems to have phoned it in on this one. I suspect that the problem here is not with Ms. Demorney but probably more a syptom of the unusualy bad writing that seem to plague this episode.
