Shock value over quality
12 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The writers are throwing in the kitchen sink by now. The victim wasn't even a "special victim", so why SVU is wasting its time and resources on the case is left unexplained. What was the point of putting so much effort in presenting a suspect who happens to be an Italian immigrant who has not been able to sleep for 15 months, three shy from what is usually determined to be the time victims expire, only to drop the character and move on? It's no wonder that Stabler himself looked bemused when they were taking leave of him. It was a lazy attempt at a MacGuffin which did nothing to move the plot in a sensible direction. To end the episode with a forced use of 'twincest' also reeks of desperation for scandal rather than imaginative writing. The final nail in the coffin is the re-used music that is heard at the club playing in the background which is identical to that used in the background of the Law and Order: Criminal Intent episode "Purgatory." Even the stock music is redundant.
