Fin's son tells him that a girl he knows was raped. But her family is so traditional, she doesn't want to talk about it. Later another girl is raped in a similar manner, Fin thinks they have a serial rapist. But a detective from Brooklyn thinks the rapist is responsible for three homicides in his jurisdiction. Fin says that murderers don't turn to rapists so he thinks he's wrong. But things are too similar so they work together and find a possible link between the victims. Written by

Adam Beach?
13 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't have a problem with Benson and Stabler taking a week out of the spotlight, however, why did we bring in Adam Beach into this episode, he offered nothing, its a bad idea to. Let Finn work cases with Munch, leave the genetic defective out of this. the idea of Novak and Lake hooking up literally made me sick. Novak's way to classy to get involved with a loser like him. I am against Adam Beach joining the show, it's not broke, don't mess with it. I like all of the current characters on the show. The show doesn't need a boost from new blood. Unlike many of the people who comment on this site, I liked Danni Beck, if we were adding a new character, why not her?
