Psychotic and Charismatic
21 August 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

One of the most horrific examples of bullying and the caste system in high school is in this SVU episode. Three girls take a fourth friend and brutally kill her leaving her body in a car trunk. And then they try to pin it on a girl whom they pick on because she's fat. Since they're not exactly criminal geniuses the squad at SVU gets to the heart of things easily enough.

The girls all go to this posh suburban school and they live lives as these teen princesses, the coolest of the cool kids. One of them, Kelli Garner is the leader and she's both psychotic and charismatic. The other two, Arielle Kebbel and Kimberly McConnell, just go along partly out of fear and partly to keep their social standing.

This episode belongs to Diane Neal as ADA Casey Novack. She really nails one of them in a bit of fast thinking as one of them is testifying on the stand. Neal also makes the right decision not to cut a deal with any of them since even the two followers have their share of responsibility. As she so accurately puts it, they're 'mean little girls'.

This episode also has David Thornton who made many appearances as a really smarmy defense attorney. Thornton's character is one you love to hate, one whom folks make lawyer jokes about with gusto.

Justice might be done, but the episode also has a twist and sad surprise ending showing how systemic bullying can be. Don't miss this one.
