We're finding out more about Amanda's experiences in Atlanta, and next week's episode takes it even further. Fin came through with a well-timed clothesline tackle to take the perp down. Carisi is getting to be a pretty good detective. He and Fin played the suspect perfectly to get him to confess to rapes in other cities. It looks like Olivia is going to make some changes concerning her foster son, Noah. Maybe she will cut back on her workload. I'd love to see somebody new take over command so she can go back to working the cases. The big theme of this episode was the backlog of untested rape cases in cities around the country. A worthy cause that Mariska and her organization (Joyful Heart) have taken on. Meanwhile there was no sign of my Amaro. Nobody even mentioned him. But Amanda came in late making excuses, so maybe she was with Nick.moreless
