    What episode was he in a few season's back? I know the episode where Olivia says that to him, but I just don't remember the name of that episode. Interesting episode, that guy has managed to fabricate DNA so now anyone in jail can say that their DNA was fabricated; and he doesn't give a damn.
  • Best episode of season 11 !

    As a big big fan of E/O I loved the scene when Elliot steps by to check how Liv feels and you get to see more of Liv's apartement and how they both interact. Sweet of course that he mortgaged the house to get Liv out of prison.



    And I liked that Mariska's husband Peter Hermann was her defence attorney. You almost never see them acting together so I really enjoyed it. It was a bit weird though to see them together like this when you know they are married. I always imagined that it had to be very funny for them to do this scene. I bet the laughed a lot :-)



    Of course you knew that Liv couldn't be the murder but I couldn't explain the DNA-thing to myself until they find out that it's possible to fabricate DNA (which is really creepy)! And it was something different to see Liv as the prime suspect.



    It was great acting especially by Mariska!! And the other characters were well-used too!

    All in all an emotional and very entertaining episode and definitely the best in Season 11! Kept me watching!moreless
  • good episode, but could have been better

    7.5
    - AGAIN this storyline? An ex-prisioner with a revenge plane and trying to frame Benson? Really?

    - I felt like they've forced too much. It was kind of unrealistic putting Benson's DNA at the knife... didn't like it, sorry, I was waiting for another explanation.

    - Expected way more action. Most part of the episode was just too slow. Just in the final minutes we had some of it.

    - I liked the twist at the end, when we learn that the perp who had set up for Benson had been raped in prison, and thought it was because she had planed it. Mariska's acting was great too.



    But still, it could be a much better episode and this wasn't one of my favoritesmoreless
  • Good episode.

    7.5
    Law and Order ended Jesse L. Martin's run on the show with him being revealed as a killer, and while we all knew Mariska Hargitay wasn't leaving, I think we were all even more sure that Olivia Benson did not kill anybody. That being said, if you throw reality out the window for a second, this was still an enjoyable episode for the most part, with a now typical ending where a philosophical question is asked: what if many cases had been handled wrong due to man made DNA?



    Fast-moving and unique, one has to give props, as the kids say, to Law and Order: Special Victims Unit for another strong offering. Keep up the good work.moreless
  • Best episode of the season!

    I knew this episode was going to be great after I saw the preview for it. Then I found out who was going to defend Olivia...Mariska's husband. What I wasn't expecting was the intensity of the episode.



    I loved how Elliot came over to Olivia's apartment just to check up on her and see how she's feeling (I am thinking she had Swine Flu). How sweet is that? :) Very cute scene with some cute humor. The 'niceness' of the episode doesn't last for long, however, when a man is found dead and there is one main suspect: Olivia. When Warner was talking about fabricating DNA, I didn't think one could actually do that, but I found out that it really can be done. That's just creepy. I felt so bad for Olivia when she was sitting in the Tombs. But the scene got better once her defense attorney showed up. Gotta love those Mariska/Peter scenes! Those happen...almost never, so seeing them sitting side by side was nice. I'm glad that Alex wasn't the prosecuting attorney for Liv's case. That would have sent their already tense friendship down the drain. All in all, this was definitely the best and most intense episode of the season. It ranks right up there with Fault from season 7. The writers, cast, crew, everyone did a fantastic job with the episode. 10/10 for me!moreless
