Goofs

The judge granted Richard Morgan pretrial release on the condition that he surrender his passport and be confined to his home with an electronic monitoring device, however she fails to set a bail amount and even says "bail is denied". When bail is denied a defendant is remanded into the custody of the department of corrections, being confined to house arrest is a form of being out on bail. See more »

Quotes

Elliot Stabler: [about Ingrid Block] Yeah, boo-hoo-hoo. She let him rot in prison for two decades. What the hell is wrong with her?
Alexandra Cabot: If she had come forward, she would have been disbarred, maybe gone to prison.
Donald Cragen: For providing evidence that would set a wrongfully accused man free?
Alexandra Cabot: Only Massachusetts allows an attorney to break privilege if he or she knows of actual innocence and since privilege doesn't die with the client, she just committed career suicide.

Attorney /client privilege
7 April 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Other than the fact that I would have trouble believing that a man would kill two women a quarter of a century apart and have no others pop up on law enforcement's attention this is not a bad episode for SVU. It focuses on attorney/client privilege.

Richard Burgi plays a Donald Trump like billionaire who is connected to both a fresh case and the method suggests a very similar one a killing of a woman 25 years earlier.

But the focus here is on his attorney Lena Olin who has a strange relationship with Burgi, almost like she's his mommy. Definitely weird.

The state tries to hold her responsible as well, how much did she know or how much did she surmise and how far does attorney/client privilege go. Specifically it's Christopher Meloni who has the questions and he also has some issues from previous episodes.

Olin is very good here, but I can't believe that SVU couldn't connect this guy to other cases.
