Episode 10: Welcome to the Pedo Hotel

Summary

The SVU must contend with an angry neighbourhood watch group when a girl goes missing near a building that houses several sex offenders. Crime drama, starring Mariska Hargitay

Review

Finn (Ice-T) is forced to confront his own prejudices when a girl goes missing near a building that houses paroled sex offenders. Despite Benson (Mariska Hargitay) pointing out the low recidivism rate among released criminals of this nature, Finn goes blundering in to this seedy so-called “paedo motel”, his target being a young black man who swears his innocence. 
Following SVU at 10pm is the next episode of swaggering new spin-off Organized Crime, which continues to mine the pandemic for inspiration. Tonight’s focus: the theft of Covid-19 vaccines that Stabler (Christopher Meloni) believes are being distributed to corrupt doctors.

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?
