Trivia

The scene following the arrest of Maggie Peterson opens with the boy sitting with Detective Munch, playing with some cars on his desk. Fittingly, in light of Munch's fascination with conspiracy, the car the boy is holding is JFK's 1961 Lincoln Presidential limo, complete with occupants, including Jackie dressed in the pink outfit she wore on the infamous day.

Goofs

On more than one occasion, a character mentions that Maggie Peterson would become the first woman executed in New York State. As Ethel Rosenberg (with her husband, Julius) were executed at Sing Sing on June 19th 1953, this is not possible. See more »

Quotes

Fin Tutuola: [while working on a case of a murdered "John"] Cause of death was between two and four hours ago... pre-release.
Elliot Stabler: Is that significant?
Elliot Stabler: No, that's just cold.

Female Serial Killer
10 August 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Sharon Lawrence who people know either as Dennis Franz's wife and an Assistant District Attorney on NYPD Blue or as Sasha Alexander's birth mother in Rizzoli&Isles currently guest stars on SVU in this episode as a prostitute who kills her john after he gets way too rough. It looks like self defense at first, but when the gun she used on him got linked to another body, the whole squad starts reinvestigating the whole case. It turns out this woman is a serial killer and she has a slew of bodies of johns she picked up. This was the first one however where the cops responded to the scene.

The two roles Lawrence is best known for are respectable women, but this one is light years from those other shows. One of the most amoral people ever depicted on any of the Law And Order series, Lawrence will shock you just how evil she is. As Benson and Staebler conclude when she wants something she just kills for it.

Lawrence dominates this episode, don't miss it.
