A case out of Kafka
4 September 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Andre Braugher made a return appearance as Innocence Project attorney Bayard Ellis who calls on his old friend Sgt. Olivia Benson now in charge of the SVU Squad. The squad is working for the defense now as an old conviction is reviewed of Glenn Plummer who back 17 years earlier was charged with raping his six year old daughter who has grown up to be Samira Wiley.

As part of her substance abuse recovery program Wiley seeks to make amends and the biggest amend she has to make is to dear old dad who on her testimony has been in jail. When we meet we see him tutoring another prisoner. As a sex offender I doubt this guy would have gotten a chance to prove his fellow prisoners he wasn't a sex offender for real. But that is one flaw of this story.

This truly is a case that Franz Kafka could have written. The proof that the squad comes up with you would think the prosecution in the person of Robert Sean Leonard would just drop this case and let Plummer walk. But he wants his innocence unvarnished and Leonard has too much ego wrapped in this case. There's ego and then there's ego.

The performance I liked the best here was that of Julie Halston who shows us just why she eventually got disbarred. This is the kind of lawyer they don't make lawyer jokes about, she is one monstrous joke. Kafka working overtime.

Some unnecessary doubt is cast on the whole business at the end. That is the episode's biggest flaw. But some of the performances like Halston's are worth noting.
