Quotes

Nick Amaro: Liv, it might be a better idea if me and Fin talk to the priest and you and Rollins pay a visit to your old pal D.A. Barba, show him that video.
Amanda Rollins: Well, we could, if he weren't skiing in Gstaad.
Olivia Benson: Gstaad? Really?

An SVU Christmas
4 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

This story begins with the annual Christmas party at SVU with Mariska Hargitay anxiously awaiting a long planned vacation to the Dominican Republic. It's Ice-T's ex-wife who brings him word about her brother who is a parolee who's been arrested for assaulting a priest.

Turns out he's not the guy, in fact he saved Father Denis O'Hare from being assaulted further. But the crowd got it wrong and Erik LaRay Harvey is back in jail. A particularly nasty ADA thinks Ice-T and Kelli Giddish are trying to buy favors from him. Nathan Lee Graham hasn't dealt with them before and if he comes back for future episodes I doubt things will be good.

It takes the whole squad including poor Olivia who is watching the minutes tick down to her flight departure trying to unravel the story. Turns out the perpetrator got the wrong priest and O'Hare knows who the right one is who impregnated his sister.

It's holiday for some of us, but for SVU business as usual.
