Goofs

Olivia says that under Megan's law the statute of limitations on the sexual abuse Gretchen and her sister Ellen suffered at the hands of their father would reset if Ellen has repressed memories of the abuse that can be recovered. However Megan's law has nothing to do with recovered memories or limitation statutes; Megan's law is the informal name given to legislature passed and signed into law on May 17, 1996 that requires law enforcement to make information in the sex offender registry freely available to the public, and to notify the public whenever a registered sex offender moves into a neighborhood.

Falls in Olivia's lap
22 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

Cases can come to the SVU squad at any time or place. Take this one. A half naked woman jumps from an apartment window while Mariska Hargitay is buying some takeout. She interjects herself and when Christopher Meloni arrives they're investigating a possible murder even though there's no real evidence of a homicide.

The woman was a writer and one desperately unhappy soul who was done wrong by every man she came in contact with. Even her psychiatrist Dennis Boutsikaris had an affair with her. There's also a married news anchor Michael Nouri who kept her on the side. But these are the latest in a series of men since she was an adolescent.

In the end there's no murder here, just a desperately unhappy woman. But her sister Laila Robins stands out in this episode where they get a case of incest/rape. Robins's scene at the climax is gripping.

You will be gripped as well at the story of a desperately unhappy victim.
