Storyline

After a rapist, Ray Schenkel, is released on parole, the detective that caught him, Dorsey, is sure that he'll revert to his old ways. When a rape occurs in New York, Dorsey talks to Stabler at the scene and convinces him that Schenkel was the perp. While investigating Schenkel, Stabler runs into him at the parole officer's office. He convinces Ray that he's a fellow parolee, and talks the PO into letting him into the group therapy session so that he can keep an eye on Ray. Stabler starts getting more deeply involved in Ray's new life, seeing if he's reformed or not, crossing the line between simple surveilence and entrapment on the way. Written by Tony B-4

We al have our devils to fight.
21 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All the usual cast of Law & Order Special Victims Unit with the addition of Robert Patrick. Patrick is someone who can play a sleaze-bag to perfection.

He was spectacular as the robot in Terminator 2: Judgement Day, magnificent in The Marine, and perfect in First To Die. He has been in many films and always comes through.

He was fantastic in this role as a rapist, not for his crimes, but how he played against Christopher Meloni. Using his compulsion as a rapist he could easily get inside Meloni's head because he also has a compulsion. He is a character that explodes easily, and Patrick's character knew it.

This is one of my favorite episodes of the show because of these two characters and the two actors who made them so believable.
