Did You Know?


The "Briscoe" referred to a few times in this episode, and other episodes in this season, is not Detective Lennie Briscoe from the original Law & Order (1990) and is not a character being mistakenly referred to as Briscoe. The Briscoe being referred to is Detective Ken Briscoe, nephew of Lennie Briscoe, who was stationed in Manhattan SVU in 1999 and 2000. Ken Briscoe was played by actor Chris Orbach, who is the son of the actor portraying Lennie Briscoe, Jerry Orbach. See more »


When Detective Cassidy refers to Richard White as "Mr. Jekyll and Dr. Hyde," he is mocking White, not misquoting Robert Louis Stevenson. Cassidy is alluding to White's professional side being the monster, not the personal side that sends flowers and feels guilty. See more »

Benson on his radar
3 September 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The SVU squad catches a case of a rape homicide in the Central Park Rambles, but what makes it unique is that it is that of an Assistant ADA in Manhattan. That opens up a whole range of suspects.

Over the course of the long run of SVU Olivia Benson attracts the special attention of many a deranged perpetrator. Bruce Kirkpatrick in this episode becomes the first in a long line. When the squad zeroes in on him as a suspect in Mariska Hargitay's interrogation of him, something sets him off.

He's also got an alibi to break courtesy of a business partner. There's also a great portrayal of Kirkpatrick's mother by Sandra Shipley who in her one scene with Benson and Stabler gives some indication as to how Kirkpatrick got so warped.

Kirkpatrick really wants to mess with Benson's head. How much you'll find out in the climax of this episode.
