Storyline

Amaro reports to the scene of a car crash where Hollywood starlet Tensley Evans tries to flirt her way out of an arrest. Amaro's by-the-book handling of the situation gets him back on the SVU squad, just in time to investigate Tensley's latest offense - the statutory rape of a 15 year-old boy. But Benson suspects that underlying issues may have led to Tensley's downward spiral - is the victimizer also a victim? Written by Jiilo_Kim

Teen Queen Mess
20 February 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Before writing and airing this episode of SVU I'm sure the lawyers were consulted and the producers and NBC were told that Lindsay Lohan was enough of a public figure that the libel&slander laws were not in play here. Or that some of what was said here about character Tensley Evans is all quite true.

This show brings Danny Pino back from being a uniform cop with his handling of a traffic arrest of a drunken Stevie Lynn Jones former teen starlet who was already on probation. Her accusation of him coming on to her is belied by the presence of a body cam. Those things might actually clear police of bogus charges. Anyway his by the book handling gets him back to the squad where Mariska Hargitay is short handed.

So why is Tensley Evans such a mess? For one thing she has Dana Wheeler -Nicholson as a mother who pushed her in front of eager producers and agents, one of them being a John Hughes like figure who likes them young and tender. She also witnessed a possible murder at his home in Los Angeles.

Takes a bit of creativity to get this guy, but the squad has to yield this one up to another jurisdiction. But the job gets done.

Not that it helps Stevie Lynn Jones. Or will Lindsay Lohan ever stop her downward spiral?
