Episode 12: Possessed

Summary

Benson and Stabler investigate after Larissa Welsh's boyfriend returns home to find her unconscious, tied to a chair, covered in razor cuts and wearing nothing but some underwear labelled `Brandy', before a naked man jumps out and attacks him. Back at headquarters, Munch and Fin search for similar cases and discover two girls have been attacked in the same manner, and further evidence points toward the existence of a paedophile ring. Guest starring Taryn Manning (Orange Is the New Black, Hawaii Five-0).

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The stories on SVU usually make you feel a bit grubby and despairing of mankind but this is an especially sordid one, as Benson and Stabler investigate the activities of elderly paedophile Orville Underwood (David Patrick Kelly giving a horribly creepy performance), who kidnapped and raped a ten-year-old girl before turning her into Brandy, a child porn star.

The girl eventually escaped his clutches but it’s a role that has haunted her for years as other paedophiles continuously sought her out to fulfill their depraved fantasies by re-enacting what they saw in Underwood’s films. The ending is a little obvious but the final exchange between “Brandy” and Olivia is chilling.
