Did You Know?


When Lewis has Olivia tied up at her apartment, and has her gun trained on her, the audience can see Elliot's mini-badge soldered to the bottom of Olivia's gun. It is especially obvious when Lewis hits Olivia with the gun after he says, "Let it rain." Elliot had sent the mini-badge to Olivia after he unexpectedly retired in between seasons 12 and 13, and Olivia had it soldered to the bottom of her gun. See more »


When Lewis asks Louisa in Spanish how old she is, he uses the phrase "¿Cuántos años?" (literally "How many years?")however the formal phrase used in Spanish to ask "How old are you?" is "¿Cuántos años tienes?" (literally "How many years do you have?") See more »


Olivia Benson: [to Lewis] What is it with you? Are you afraid of me?
William Lewis: Oh, no, sweetheart. I was just hoping we could take our time.
Olivia Benson: We've been together for four days. There's a lot of talk, but there's not a lot of action.
William Lewis: It's coming, baby.
Olivia Benson: I wonder if if you're not man enough to get it up for a real woman.

bad actor, terrible story for a L&O show
28 January 2014 | by martinmontano50See all my reviews

is this show turning into a soup opera? can there be a worst actor? he can only smile, laugh, smile... i hope next season goes back to the episode story itself, the police investigating, and the DA. trying to send to jail the offender, with a little bit of information about the main characters, but instead, now it is about each character personal life and drama, and they seem to hire actors with no performance abilities. and they seem to be running out of stories, again Olivia attacked, again almost rapped, again traumatized, again the offender almost getting out of it on trial (another wasted episode), so this never ends (at least they should had hire a better actor. This is the last L&O show on US TV, it is very important for us fans they can keep on the air. I love the show, i know they can do really better.
