Falls in Olivia's lap
22 August 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Cases can come to the SVU squad at any time or place. Take this one. A half naked woman jumps from an apartment window while Mariska Hargitay is buying some takeout. She interjects herself and when Christopher Meloni arrives they're investigating a possible murder even though there's no real evidence of a homicide.

The woman was a writer and one desperately unhappy soul who was done wrong by every man she came in contact with. Even her psychiatrist Dennis Boutsikaris had an affair with her. There's also a married news anchor Michael Nouri who kept her on the side. But these are the latest in a series of men since she was an adolescent.

In the end there's no murder here, just a desperately unhappy woman. But her sister Laila Robins stands out in this episode where they get a case of incest/rape. Robins's scene at the climax is gripping.

You will be gripped as well at the story of a desperately unhappy victim.
