Two executives find signs of a struggle in their conference room, and on the floor of an adjacent room, a naked, bound and gagged co-worker who had been raped. While in the hospital for treatment, feds arrest the victim for assorted financial crimes before Benson and Stabler can get her statement. Trace evidence shows the perp suffers from probably untreated diabetes, and raped at least two other women. The detectives identify a suspect, but find it hard to locate him because he's in the fed's witness protection program. The suspect's bookie produces a lead, which ends when the detectives encounter the business ends of the guns of two feds where a U. S. Marshall and the federal witness had just been killed.

Highlights what I dislike most about Stabler and Benson
3 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From the very beginning Stabler and Benson take a contentious attitude towards the Feds even though Grier's character seemed to go out of her way to be reasonable and cooperate with their investigation. Both cases were important, but the Feds investigation was obviously more so and far reaching. Stabler's insistence and disrespectful approach in getting the Feds to hand over the suspect in question was based on nothing more than speculation. Turns out he was wrong and put much at risk just to satisfy his own ego. Stabler seems to think that when he waves his tin badge and issues a commands ALL should comply. It was almost a pleasure to see him behind bars getting subjected to someone else's boot on his neck for a change. As well Alex called him out nicely for his arrogance.

I do on the whole like SVU but I have to say that I'll always prefer the original and even CI better. This show should be more "Law & Order" and perhaps less Elliot and Olivia. It's developed an irritatingly puerile and cliquish feel to it lately (Stabler and Benson are cool and HOT... everyone else is not). Whatever... I'm a bit worn out on his brooding arrogance and condescension and her idiotic proclamations on homosexuality... as if they're universally accepted and scientifically proved facts.
