Someone's machinations
4 September 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The SVU squad initially gets it wrong. When Karen Starc is kidnapped during a carjacking, the squad thinks its another case involving a serial rapist. But as Benson and Stabler get into the case this turns out to be quite a bit more.

The young woman was single and very pregnant almost due to have her baby. In hospital things would be fine for Starc. But she's being held incommunicado and a ransom is demanded for her of her ex-boyfriend and father of the child Gabriel Olds.

In the meantime Olds who came from the wrong side of the tracks is the fiancé of rich Kellie Martin.

This ends in tragedy and a lot of broken lives as a result of someone's machinations.
