Storyline

When a reporter is found dead, the team investigates and Cragen upon seeing the body sees something that makes him think she was killed by a serial killer who was active 30 years ago. They eventually find the man and when confronted he says it's not him because one of the victims he couldn't have killed. They check it out and while he killed the others the one he claims he didn't kill was made to look like he killed her. So they re investigate and learn the woman was married to a celebrity businessman who's a womanizer. They think they should focus on him but he's dead. They talk to a patrol cop who worked the original case. And they talk to all the women the man was with and none of them stand out. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Copycat
31 January 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This particular SVU episode had more twists and curves in it than a country road. But the scenery is real nice with a number of former pin up girls from the big and small screen back in their salad days. There's also Renee Taylor as well playing an agent.

The squad catches a case where the MO is the same as some unsolved rape murders from the 70s. They manage to bag William Atherton for their current case and you won't believe how they did it. But one of the homicides from the 70s turns out to be a copycat.

The copycat was that of the wife of local TV celebrity Robert Newman who back in the day was known for his commercials hawking his mattresses. Newman was also known for bouncing several nubile young blonds on those mattresses, something his wife naturally objected to.

Some of those doing the bouncing are Susan Anton, Morgan Fairchild, and Ann-Margret. Ann-Margret really stands out in this episode during a lengthy interrogation where every time Benson and Stabler think they have it figured out, she throws them another curve.

The end result is spectacular, it could have been from a Twilight Zone story.
