Olivia has a problem
7 July 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Mariska Hargitay has a problem, someone wants to embarrass and humiliate her, possibly destroy her reputation. That person will stop at nothing including murder.

Three victims are found dead and the three were in previous SVU episodes. They're found on an FBI training facility guaranteeing maximum exposure with the press. All three were given potassium chloride the lethal injection drug. It's quick and presumably painless.

It's quite an investigation that nearly splits Benson with Stabler. Christopher Meloni gets a detail to shadow his partner that she doesn't want.

Of course the individual and the reason for all the drama is clear. Olivia's stalker sees himself as a victim and has become quite unbalanced from his prison ordeal. What he has planned in the end he feels that Hargitay can't come back from.

This story belongs to Mariska Hargitay.
