Law & Order: Special Victims Unit


Series 12 - Episode 3 Behave



A young woman is found on a bus, drowsy from a head wound after a severe beating. She tells her rescuer: “He raped me… again…” In a typically harrowing episode persistent detective Olivia Benson discovers that the young woman (affectingly played by Ghost Whisperer’s Jennifer Love Hewitt) has been stalked, terrorised and repeatedly attacked by the same man for 15 years.

None of this will send you to bed with a song in your heart – in fact it’s remorseless. But Law and Order SVU does what it does brilliantly, however nasty. And it’s always a delight to see the glowing Olivia (Mariska Hargitay) when she’s really on a mission because, as we SVU devotees know only too well, Olivia takes everything personally.


Benson and Stabler are called in when a woman is admitted to hospital after being found in a distressed state on a bus, claiming to have been raped. She tells the detectives it is the fourth time she has been assaulted by the same man over the past 15 years, but runs off before they get to ask any more questions. Crime drama, guest starring Jennifer Love Hewitt.
