  • That Novak looks very familiar..

    The episode itself is very well written. SVU is always full of twists and turns and things you just never see coming. This episode is no exception. The discovery of a fake vein with another man's blood put into a perps arm to cheat a faternity test is absoloute genious. It is very incredible the legnths that some people will go to to retain their innocence.
    To be honest I like Novak more than I did Cabot. After watching her throughout the seaons I have just really grown to like her personality. However, when she first came on the screen I couldn't help but feel that I had seen her before. Then I realized she was in another episode of Law In Order. Only in that episode she was charged with raping a man along with her friends. I'm not sure if they just didn't think devotee's would notice, or if they were so amazed at her performance in the earlier episode they decided to keep her on full time. Either way she's a wonderful addition to the cast.
