Superb episode. Brilliant SVU unafraid to tackle difficult topics!
13 November 2018 | by Kiki-kiki-123See all my reviews

Excellent conclusion to the 2 part series finale. It wraps up the story from the previous espisode and introduces more depth and a new linked storyline, cranking up the tension and showing characters making difficult choices about what is right and what is wrong in an awful situation. This story rings true to life. SVU shows again that it is not afraid to speak truth to power. This show is not afraid to explore complex and difficult topics and highlight some of the atrocities and hate crimes taking place in today's political climate, and give insight in to the subsequent impact on stretched law enforcement and suffering communities.

These 2 episodes had me on the edge of my seat. Difficult watching at times but essential and brave storytelling. Thanks to everyone involved in bringing these 2 episodes to life. Superb acting from everyone. I am a long time fan of this show and SVU just gets better and better. Love this show!

P.s. The seriously skewed rating given for these 2 excellent season finale episodes is nonsense. Don't believe it for a second. The show consistently scores 9/10 rating and then for 2 episodes exploring topics some people don't like it suddenly drops in quality to 5/10? I don't think so. People's political agendas are showing and their hate is clearly getting in the way of their common sense, which ironically enough is exactly what these episodes were exploring.
