When two sisters are killed in a fire, Detectives Olivia Benson and Eliot Stabler are confused about why they are called to investigate. They soon discover that Stabler's old partner, ADA Jo Marlowe, has been put on the case -- despite the absence of a sex crime -- because the two victims were so young, and that she has enlisted the duo to help. However, as the investigation continues, Benson and Stabler find that the case might be more suited to their department than anyone originally assumed, and Stabler's interrogation tactics threaten to get the detectives into trouble.

Stone Sets a New Low
16 November 2017 | by mikejkocikSee all my reviews

I am long time SVU fan, and generally appreciate the writing and the characters. Mostly I like that not every episode has a neat or happy ending.

In this episode Sharon Stone plays a DA who happens to have been Stabler's training partner. There is a bit of the expected tension between Stone's character and Olivia. And of course, the regular SVU standby of friction between detectives and DA.

It's a decent episode and worth watching for the story.

However, it definitely taught me something new. Just how much of a colossally bad actor Sharon Stone has become. Her flat delivery is exceeded only by her poor timing. Maybe I am selling her short. Perhaps the Botox just numbed her entire face so that she has no emotion whatsoever. Whatever the case, I have seen high school players with wider range and better timing. It is genuinely painful to watch Stone's performance.
