Storyline

A man in custody at a mental hospital claims to have witnessed a rape in a break room. Despite the witness' shaky credibility the SVU begins an investigation, but the alleged victim, Gia Eskas, denies being assaulted. Detectives Benson and Rollins struggle to piece together what really happened to this young woman, especially when her aunt and mother say Gia has been repeatedly institutionalized, and has cried rape in the past.

This is a MUST SEE for every SVU fan! If you're not a fan or have somehow never seen Law and Order SVU, then this is the episode to begin with!
16 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is a cut above excellent. It was extremely well written, directed and magnificently executed by all actors and actresses involved. Special kudos go to Richard Belzer for his unusually great performance. He displayed his usual conspiracy theory wry sarcasm and wit, but he was more controlled with it and showed more versatility than usual. This is a welcome change from him and I hope it continues for Belzer's character. His talent has not been fully utilized to this point so it would be refreshing to see more character development around him. With that said, it's time to address Ice T's character. His talent is apparent but we need more from his character. Like Belzer's character, Tutuola needs to be developed to a much larger scale. The minor characters were superb! Each and every one of them performed like the true professionals Dick Wolf has continually engaged over the years. This man is THE master of his craft. Two more points..Hargitay simply outdid herself! This woman continues to give outrageously superb performances. How does the small screen contain her? Lastly, the absence of Christopher Meloni is felt in every episode. This one would have been enhanced greatly by Elliot. Come home Chris!
