Over the years I've watched SVU go from straight forward crime drama dealing with various sexual crimes and crimes dealing with children to tales so bizarre and twisted they almost can't be told in a single 42 minute show (and some of them can't, but that's rare).
This one I think takes the cake for the strangest twists and turns that I've never seen coming. I have to hand it to the SVU writers - they can manage to keep me guessing. If you guessed the terrible touching truth about the end of the episode before you watched it, then your brain is more twisty than mine.
NBC can't let this cast go. It's just too good, and if they let the writer's go, well that's beyond unbelievable. Keep the great stories coming. I love to see them. This one may have been more twisty than usual, but it was every bit as good.
