The medical examiner Dr. Melinda Warner states that the victim, Ellen Sazelin, had a blood alcohol concentration of 1.6. A BAC of 0.4 is considered the lethal limit. As women typically have a lower tolerance than men, and with Ellen not being overweight or obese, it's extremely unlikely if not impossible for her to achieve a BAC of that level. She received a telephone call three hours prior to her death; for her to achieve that level of intoxication in three hours, she would have had to have consumed roughly 55-60 drinks, or 18-20 drinks per hour.

Luscious Grape
29 September 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The SVU squad responds to an artist's party when blood from the above apartment started dripping in. It was Kathryn Barnhardt's blood and she's found dead upstairs.

By all accounts she was a mousy inoffensive woman who internalized a lot of her feelings. She was keeping a lot to herself because she worked for a small company called Luscious Grape which sold expensive wines. The woman she worked for was Kate Burton who was the boss from hell who made Leona Helmsley look like a cloistered nun. And Barnhardt took enough secret video to prove it.

The small company provides the squad with a closed circle of possible perpetrators. Why this episode didn't really work for me is that I could not understand why this group didn't just leave. No job was worth taking the abuse they did and they all looked like they could find other work.

However you will enjoy Kate Burton chewing and digesting every stick of furniture on the set.
