Law and Order: SVU (S19E22) “Mama”

First of all, I need to rejoice. Last night’s episode was a difficult one to watch, but for all the right reasons! Having had an in-law with Alzheimer’s, this episode struck close to home. Seeing the most vulnerable people victimized has always been a part of SVU and this episode was no exception. ***spoilers ahead***…

Law and Order: SVU (S19E19) "Sunk Cost Fallacy"

Sometimes in life, there are no good choices and SVU had 2 situations that dealt with that reality on last night’s episode. First off, the best part (although not a happy one) of the episode was Peter Stone (Philip Winchester) having to make a choice about his sister’s medication. We met his sister at her…

Law and Order: SVU (S19E18) "Service"

I’m really struggling with last night’s SVU. The premise was fine but overused, and the one highlight and beautiful moment of the night was held until the final 2 minutes of the episode. Amanda Rollins (Kelly Giddish) set my teeth on edge from the opening with her attitude, and Olivia Benson’s (Mariska Hargitay) lack of…

Law and Order:SVU (S19E17) "Send in the Clowns"

***spoilers ahead*** Last night’s episode was weird in all the best ways. It was such a classic SVU, and thankfully not quite as heartbreaking as the last few weeks have been. Well, unless you count the revelation that our favorite ADA Peter Stone (Philip Winchester) has an ill family member that he visits regularly. More…

Law and Order: SVU (S19E16) "Dare"

***spoilers ahead*** Addressing current issues is something that SVU excels at and last night was no exception. Looking at the current state of organ donations here vs that in Europe makes a compelling case for presumed consent, at least to this writer. But it’s an issue that is perhaps the most personal one that people…

Law and Order: SVU (S19E15)"In Loco Parentis"

***spoilers ahead*** In this Dominick Carisi (Peter Scanavino) centered episode, SVU examines the realities of investigating and prosecuting the complicated sex crimes that are reported on college campuses. The difficulties inherent in such cases become crystal clear throughout and are a great opportunity to see new ADA Peter Stone (Philip Winchester) working through a steep…

Law and Order: SVU (S19E14) "Chasing Demons"

***spoilers ahead*** Last night’s episode was a perfect look at new ADA Peter Stone (Philip Winchester) and what his relationship with the team is going to be. Rough is probably an understatement at this point. The biggest thing to understand about Stone, and what we learned on Chicago Justice – this man has a strong…
