Other than the fact that I would have trouble believing that a man would kill two women a quarter of a century apart and have no others pop up on law enforcement's attention this is not a bad episode for SVU. It focuses on attorney/client privilege.
Richard Burgi plays a Donald Trump like billionaire who is connected to both a fresh case and the method suggests a very similar one a killing of a woman 25 years earlier.
But the focus here is on his attorney Lena Olin who has a strange relationship with Burgi, almost like she's his mommy. Definitely weird.
The state tries to hold her responsible as well, how much did she know or how much did she surmise and how far does attorney/client privilege go. Specifically it's Christopher Meloni who has the questions and he also has some issues from previous episodes.
Olin is very good here, but I can't believe that SVU couldn't connect this guy to other cases.
