Meandering
31 October 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Although this SVU episode starts out with a murder of a Tibetan refugee and Chris Meloni and Mariska Hargitay assume it has something to do with her political activism it meanders quite a bit until we get to it having to do with her footwear.

Another lovely red herring is thrown in when the SVU squad suspects Frederick Weller initially of the crime. The victim was married to her, but that turns out to be a marriage for citizenship as Weller is gay and has a partner. That sounds like the subject of a whole SVU episode in and of itself.

No after a painstaking investigation the culprit is Charlie Hofheimer who has a raging shoe fetish. But Dr. Huang assures us that those folks are not violent. Which leads us to the final twist of the story which I will not reveal.

Not one of SVU's better episodes it meanders way too much in the plot.
