Police find a female forensic psychiatrist unconscious and bound in a basement, along with would-be rapists. She turns out to be the author of a book about rehabilitating convicted sex offenders. The detectives identify one of her patients as a suspect, and ask the doctor for his records, but they disappeared when her office was vandalized shortly after she left the hospital. A tape that disappeared during the break-in is brought to police by another suspect's sister, which leads the investigation to focus on victimology. Written by Anonymous

Terrific Twist!
26 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode begins with a drug bust in a seedy heroin dealer's dump, where they find a blonde lady tied up and two would-be rapists considering taking advantage of her unconsciousness. Stabler and Benson arrive on the scene and Olivia recognizes the unconscious woman- She's Dr. Greta Heints, a therapist who believes that her unconventional techniques can cure rapists. The detectives begin to pursue one of her patients, Robert Logan, only to find that he has quite the story about a love affair between himself and the good doctor. Doctor-patient privilege becomes a problem for the detectives as they try to figure out what was really happening on Dr. Greta's couch. The ending was superb in my opinion; I loved the twist they tossed in there. Well worth the watch, I give this episode a ten out of ten!
