Eddie Sandow: You don't know anything about my dad. You know, he's awesome. When I was 16, I was a loser. He bought me my own apartment. I'd have girls, parties, anything I ever wanted. See, my dad knows how people are.
Olivia Benson: And how are they, Eddie?
Eddie Sandow: Everybody always wants something. All these girls just want my dad to make them a star. They only care about themselves.

I would have shot Benson
25 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

SHUT THE HELL UP BENSON. Seriously Benson was a detriment to this whole episode, yet again. I like one of the other reviewers wanted to throw something at the television screen. She interfered at every level and sought justice for a menacing redhead. Again she ignores orders and just talks and talks and talks about doing the right thing by everyone. I dislike Benson as she is being written and I think she has to be written out of the show now, or at least give the audience a sense of satisfaction and hold her accountable for her interfering. Look back at episodes and just see how many times she is a detriment to investigations as opposed to working well within a team. WRITE HER OFF
