  • Review to up the average.

    Honestly, I'm reviewing this episode to help up it's average. It was like a train-wreck to watch; from beginning to end. It had all the elements of a suspenseful drama/thriller: a vicious crime, a twist, a good character turned bad, and a violent/shocking ending. I loved seeing the FBI agent not able to cope with having a live victim to deal with; they did a good job of showing how out of her league the agent was feeling. As for Benson's reaction at the end, it's called shock. When a person is in a state of shock, they react exactly like Olivia did: they just shut-down. I was surprised not to see her have any fall-out in the next few episodes. I thought that there would be at least a mention of a mandatory counseling session or something.
