Storyline

Officer Nate Kendall aids a woman in trouble and becomes roped into solving a rape case. While Detectives Elliot Stabler and Olivia Benson believe that Kendall is not right for the case due to his unstable personality, Executive ADA Sonya Paxton joins the team, bringing evidence of a common thread among three other rape cases. With Paxton's help, the team might expose a serial rapist. Written by NBC Publicity

Strong writing and performances. Ending a bit too dark.
18 February 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Solid start for a season. We are treated to a new DA, who nitpicks everything the detectives do because she doesn't want to see convictions overturned; an unbalanced cop who has to work with SVU this case, but who does not have the required sensitiveness; both the harm of letting a guilty man loose and of convicting an innocent man are shown. Wentworth Miller performance is fun because it is almost campy: he reminds me of the guy on the car insurance commercials asking if the company really saves you 15%. The perp, played by Maha... Mr Ali is as smug and detestable as can be. The "irony" in the end, however, is too much of a downer and probably left a lot of people less enthusiastic about seeing the series again. I thought it was a mistake. It is not badly written, it is just kind of depressing.
