Nerves get frayed.
25 June 2014 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The escape of young Andrea Bowen from the back of a van starts the SVU squad on another case which turns into a hunt for a serial killer. This individual targets girls in the high single digit age range as victims and its Bowen's testimony that provides the squad with a pattern they can use to track him down.

In another episode it was mentioned that what may have brought Mariska Hargitay to SVU was her way with victims. That is shown to a high degree in her interrogation of Bowen held by the way against the will of Bowen's mother.

As for the arrest the mother of another victim not so lucky gives Christopher Meloni a picture of her daughter which happens to provide the clue that finally gives the killer an identity.

Nerves get very frayed on this SVU episode as the squad works almost without sleep for 72 hour to catch this loathsome creep.
