Full Episode Summary

An arrest for DUI turns into an SVU case when the soldier-on-leave shows evidence of an assault. Benson, however, has difficulty when the victim, her fellow soldiers and commanding officer block the investigation at every lead. Then Amaro asks a favor of his ex-wife, and her results open a door to a little-known part of the military culture.

In terms of the participants in the rape (William Taverts, Matthew Wooten, Zeke Lipitt and Scott Graver): Scott Graver was an unwilling participant who was coerced into being an accomplice. However I question whether Zeke Lipitt was a willing participant. He was the only one besides Scott, who seemed at all uncomfortable with the situation based on his behavior throughout the episode. Wooten and Taverts from the beginning of the Supreme Court trial gave off an air of arrogant confidence and assured certainty that they could not get in trouble but both Lipitt and Graver showed signs of being uncomfortable. Just as Taverts coerced Graver into participating, I wonder whether he did with Lipitt (for whatever unknown reason) as well. Wooten seems to share the same attitude as Taverts in that women exist to serve the desires of men essentially (Not saying I agree with such a view, just what the view is about). If I could have made any input into the story, I would have the episode show that Lipitt was also an unwilling participant but not Wooten or Taverts. That is just my view though. Does anyone agree? Nobody has to.moreless

SVU ran its course and I believe that it will be cancelled. They clearly ran out of stories and they only have a core audience. With Richard Beltzer leaving it is no doubt that Mariska Hargitay and Ice-T will leave for different roles.

Sad to say after 14+ seasons, i'm done with this show. I'm sick of NBC, shoving their far left political agenda, in their shows. All they do anymore is attack the military, christians, and conservatives. The show has always been left of center, and that was ok. They use to have a balancing voice in the show, but not anymore. They make every conservative position into extremism, and i'm sick of it. For the record, i'm an independent. I agree with conservatives on some issues, and liberals on others.This episode was the straw, that broke the camel's back. The US military would not arrest a rape victim for adultery. Adultery in the military, is against the code for good reason. If a military officers or soldiers, are allowed to commit adultery; it threatens moral and unity. But a rape is not adultery. No way a rape victim is arrested for adultery, we are not the taliban. No matter how much, NBC wants to equate the two. Way to attack values, and get your shots in against the military to boot. This show starting going down hill in season eleven. "We have a handgun problem in this country." (Stabler's last episode) Seriously! Most law enforcement officers support the second amendment for law abiding citizens. Was that view supported? Of course not, every character in the show, was in agreement. That's not even mentioning all thecrazy christian and evil zionistsepisodes. Enough is enough.NBC tried pushing their far left agenda inRevolutionas well. Evil militias, evil defense department, and the morons in the military. I'm glad to see, that they have back off some from that trend. Here is a hint NBC: the people that would be most interested, in watching anend of the world/ survivalistshow, would be conservatives. Push your far left agenda on them, they will stop watching. Take a lesson from CBS'sJericho.End Rant and good riddance.moreless

It was nice to see Nick Amaro with his ex-wife. It's clear they still care about each other. And I loved the I Love You hand sign Nick and his little girl shared.

I agree "that" family is better than the one he got in court last season. I still like him divorced though, grumpy & bitter Nick makes for better drama ;)
