Weird Right of Passage
bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York
7 January 2014
This SVU episode deals with the squad investigating the murder of a
young woman found in an elevator shaft of a building with signs of
sexual assault. Even if it's not sexual in nature the squad usually on
this show sticks with the case. As it is it's sexual in nature only the
broadest sense possible in this story.
The investigation leads to a cult following of an imprisoned serial
killer played with menace by Jared Harris. In some weird rite of
passage, young Shannon Woodward kills another of the cult members.
This comes down to a battle of wits between ADA Diane Neal and Harris
whom she might have to call as a witness. Like Hannibal Lecter or the
real life Charles Manson just how much room do you have to negotiate
here with a man already serving several life sentences without
possibility of parole?
All I can say is, you'd be surprised what can be negotiated in this
