Episode 3: Remember Me in Quarantine

Summary

The SVU questions a group of college roommates when one of them, an Italian exchange student, goes missing during Covid-19 lockdown. Starring Mariska Hargitay, Kelli Giddish and Ice-T

Review

You’ll have no doubt heard of a locked-room mystery, but the quarantine has created a whole new whodunnit sub-genre: the lockdown mystery. The suspects here are a self-centred set of flatmates who have gone so stir crazy during the Covid crisis that they’ve decided to break social distancing rules with a vengeance. We’re talking illicit trips to seedy bars, casual hook-ups, drug deals…oh, and murder, too, as an Italian exchange student has ended up dead in a basement freezer. 

Her roomies insist that they thought she’d just left town, but at least one of them is lying. And as Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and her team follow the chain of evidence, masks start to slip.

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?
