Goofs

Even if Gretchen were still alive it would not be a violation of doctor/patient privilege for her psychiatrist to disclose the name of her next of kin to the police, since it has nothing to do with her medical conditions or information. See more »

Falls in Olivia's lap
22 August 2014 | by bkoganbingSee 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.
