Last week we were treated to a terrific episode of Law & Order: SVU wherein Olivia had to revisit one of her past cases and learned that she had elicited a false confession. The episode ended on a rather sad note when Olivia and DA David Haden (guest star Harry Connick Jr.) ended their burgeoning relationship because he had been appointed to a review panel where he would be forced to investigate her former cases.
In tonight’s all new episode of Law & Order: SVU, Diane Neal returns as ADA Casey Novak and Chloë Sevigny guest stars. Sevigny plays a woman who is raped while video chatting with her husband who is in Hong Kong on a business trip. He watches the rapist attack and abduct her, but it’s his mother who notifies the police. The police descend on the victim’s house and the kidnapper demands a ransom. But the cops are shocked when the missing wife herself turns up to collect the random.
Sevigny’s character tries to explain to the police about her hostage ordeal, but Benson is suspicious of her story. With Novak’s help, the SVU detectives dig deeper to try and figure out the real victim in this complicated case.
Watch four sneak peeks below for tonight’s all new episode of Law & Order: SVU, airing at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
