A Hair Trigger Temper
26 July 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This episode belongs to Stephanie March who exits the show as ADA Alexandra Cabot. Drug dealer Jacinto Taras Riddick takes a personal interest in her and not a good one.

Riddick is no street level dealer he's at the top of the narcotics food chain, an underboss to a Colombian drug lord who has some really good connections and is wired into a lot of places.

The SVU squad gets the case of a girl found only in a coat with her tongue cut out. Turns out she was an undercover cop and that sends the squad on a collision course with the Drug Enforcement Agency and a long term investigation they have on Riddick and his crew.

Riddick has a hair trigger temper and it's what got the undercover killed and Alexandra Cabot sets him off the same way.

David Thornton is around as all around smarmy criminal lawyer Lionel Granger who of course is defending Riddick.

Stephanie March really has the right stuff for her job.
