Goofs

Judge Elizabeth Donnelly could not have taken a leave of absence to step down to go back being a D.A. Prosecutor against Linnie Malcolm because she would have lost her seat on the bench. See more »

Quotes

Linnie Malcolm: [to Donnelly in court] I ran so I could get an abortion. I couldn't get an abortion in prison and I couldn't have that baby. I didn't care if I spent the rest of my life in jail, but the thought of his child growing inside me. That's why I came to see you. To say I'd plead guilty, if I could just end the pregnancy first, but you were so strong, so self-confident. I was ashamed of my weakness. I couldn't tell you. How could a woman like you ever understand a woman like me?

The best of intentions
30 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Mariska Hargitay's dedication to her job brings about a lot of grief with the best of intentions. Clea DuVall is a victim of domestic abuse which Hargitay and Chris Meloni only uncover when Hargitay stakes herself out at the downstair's neighbor to catch him in the act. She catches him more than abusing his wife, she catches Nathaniel Marston stabbing DuVall to death.

But neighbor Brenda Blethyn's 911 call yields a fingerprint from a 34 year old cold case. Back in the Seventies Blethyn shot her then husband and escaped before trial. She's been married to and living with her new husband Mike Farrell since then and he knew nothing about her situation. He also has multiple sclerosis and Blethyn is his chief caregiver.

Talk about opening a can of worms, there's still more to come in this SVU episode which talks a lot about what it was like for battered women in the day.
