William Lewis: [to Olivia] My daddy, well, he used to leave me at my babysitter's. He used to put me in front of the TV to watch cartoons and he'd take her in the back and do her on the water bed.

Olivia's Ordeal
1 January 2014 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This SVU episode is one that will truly convince you that some people are just pure evil, a concept that many find difficult to grasp. After his lawyer Lauren Ambrose gets him free creating reasonable doubt in the jury's mind, serial rapist Pablo Schreiber decides to celebrate by kidnapping and torturing Mariska Hargitay.

I suppose to be defense attorney one must believe that all are redeemable in some manner. I would suggest that Lauren Ambrose has probably changed her mind after this episode Schreiber doesn't leave her out of his sick twisted little mind.

This story is dominated by the attacker and his victim, Pablo Schereiber and Mariska Hargitay. Schreiber is terrifyingly good and Hargitay does some of her best work since SVU began.
