Storyline

When a woman is found wandering around in her underwear and there are signs she was assaulted, she's brought to the hospital and SVU is called. When they talk to the woman she doesn't know what they are talking about and thinks it's the day before. And when they learn she was suppose to go out of the country, they check video surveillance at the airport and see that some guy slipped something in her drink and made her go with him. They find the man and arrest him. But they don't have enough to charge him. They learn this is not his first time; that he has done this before and to several other women.

Goofs

When Kelly Sun fully regains consciousness in the hospital, she panics because she has to be in Korea on Friday, only to be told by Stabler it's already Friday, and that she's missed her flight. It's established that Kelly was at the airport "last night" - Thursday - when she was drugged. That's not nearly enough time to get to South Korea by Friday; a non-stop flight from New York to Seoul takes at least 14 hours, and Seoul is 14 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time. (Had Kelly left New York on Thursday evening, she likely would have arrived in Korea very late Friday or early Saturday,) See more »

Quotes

Olivia Benson: [after Elliot shows Laurel Andrews a video of her being sexually assaulted] What the hell were you thinking?
Elliot Stabler: I was thinking about getting a serial rapist off the streets.
Olivia Benson: I want to catch the guy as much as you do, but what about Laurel Andrews?
Elliot Stabler: How many times have you said, "Confronting the attacker is the only way to move on"?
Olivia Benson: Laurel doesn't have to move on. In her mind, she wasn't even raped.
Elliot Stabler: Lutz will learn from his mistakes. He'll improve his MO. Then we'll never get him. You can't change ...

Porn made him do it
15 December 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Kelly Hu becomes one of the rape victims, the latest that the SVU squad catches the case for. At first it's thought that she's a robbery victim as well since she was carrying $700,000.00 in diamonds on her as a bonded messenger. But the perpetrator never even looked inside the sealed part of her purse.

No Michael Trucco had his own agenda going here, he not only rapes them, but he drugs them with scopallimine so they don't even remember the event which Hu doesn't. But he also tapes the encounter. If Hu hadn't been found disheveled and unconscious who knows how many more victims Trucco would have racked up.

Christina Ebersole's defense of him is that Trucco's addiction to porn made him do it. The rapist version of the Twinkie defense. In fact we learn that Judge John Cullum likes some raunchy porn himself which provides a bump on the road to justice.

It all gets resolved in the end, but Trucco is truly one loathsome character, one of the worst SVU ever dealt with.
