Dr. West's Attorney: [to Cassidy] When you went to arrest my client, did he have a swollen face and a black eye?
Brian Cassidy: He resisted.
Dr. West's Attorney: So you smashed his face into a desk and you called him a monkey?
Brian Cassidy: That's a lie!
Dr. West's Attorney: But you do admit you violently subdued him?
Brian Cassidy: Yeah. He was trying to get away!
Dr. West's Attorney: Because you are a loose cannon that cannot control his animal instincts.
Brian Cassidy: Actually, the only animal in this courtroom, Counselor, is your client, Dr. West.
Dr. West's Attorney: So all black men are animals to you?

Brian Cassidy blows up
1 March 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This SVU story begins where some normally end with the trial of the perpetrator. Dean Winters is now working for the DA's office and the defense lawyer presses the right buttons and Brian Cassidy blows right up on the stand making it clear what he'd like to do personally to the defendant. It results in a mistrial and later on the perpetrator is found slain in his home.

Not like there isn't a shortage of people wanting to kill this man who was a doctor and abused several child patients. But Winters really put himself out there with his behavior.

Of course the history he has with Mariska Hargitay makes her go the extra 10 miles to prove he's innocent. She really has her job and reputation on the line here.

It's interesting to see how the Brian Cassidy character has matured over the years from the wide eyed innocent who left SVU and then paths crossed over a decade later while he was in narcotics. That assignment sure made him lose his innocence as we saw him return.

Is Olivia Benson's faith justified? Watch and find out.
