Storyline

Sgt. Greevy and Det. Logan investigate the death of an artist, Victor More, who is found dead in his studio. It has all of the earmarks of a suicide but More's friends and family say that's impossible and he would never do such a thing. The autopsy suggests that More was strangled while in a state of sexual arousal and the sex game may have cost him his life. The investigation leads them to Henry Rothman, the city's Commissioner of Artistic Affairs who knew the victim. More importantly, the connection leads them to Elizabeth Hendricks, a dominatrix who may be behind the death. For ADA Stone, the challenge will be to get Rothman, who is subservient to Hendricks, to testify against her. Written by garykmcd

Catholicism Kicks In
26 January 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

George Dzundza and Chris Noth go into the world of S&M when they investigate what looks like a suicide of a man in all kind of leather gear who is found hanging in his studio. But the toxicology reveals someone who had a lot downer type drugs in his system which sure would have weakened any resistance.

The investigation leads to a city commissioner who was happily married to the public, but led a secret life as a slave to dominatrix Frances Conroy. Larry Keith is the hapless slave who because of the dynamics of the relationship, Michael Moriarty and Richard Brooks are having a hard time getting to roll over on Conroy.

It all gets too much for Dzundza whose Catholicism kicks in with all the kinky alternative sex he has to wade through in this case. He wants off, but Dann Florek who later when he commander of the SVU unit says in the very first episode, 'we don't pick the vic'.

This might have made a great SVU episode, too bad Benson and Stabler weren't on TV yet.
