Episode 7: Hunt, Rape and Release

Summary

Benson teams up with Lt Barek and the Bronx SVU to track down a serial rapist with victims in both boroughs. Hard-hitting and emotional series chronicling the life and crimes of the New York Police Department, starring Mariska Hargitay

Review

The fractures in America’s policing system are something that Special Victims Unit has been tackling with renewed vigour of late, with this new episode taking a cogent look at what can happen when a cop prioritises loyalty to a colleague above all else. 

The officer in question is series regular Amanda Rollins of Manhattan’s SVU, who decides to back a detective from the Bronx by the name of Moldovan after he acts in a questionable manner during an arrest. Overzealous he may have been in his pursuit of a guy suspected of a series of rapes, but Moldovan’s also growing increasingly territorial about crimes committed in his borough. Pretty soon, a headline-making police turf war has broken out, but where will Rollins’s moral compass eventually lead her?
