Possibly the best Episode of an outstanding series
15 December 2014 | by (Fishers, Indiana) – See all my reviews

I've been watching recorded re-runs of Law and Order SVU for the past couple of months now. The series is good, but normally most episodes follow a similar formula and are mostly forgettable. I watch the show during the day while working. This episode was amazing though, I had to stop my work and watch as this episode made me anxious to the point where I was getting goosebumps. The episode was 90% just Detective Benson (Mariska Hargitay) talking into a phone but it really was an edge of your seat adventure. Any fan of the series should watch this episode and rate as well, this episode should go down as one of the best episodes in TV history.
