This season of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit started out promising for Olivia Benson when she was promoted to Sergeant and handed the reigns of the SVU. Since then though she’s been on a slow downward spiral. Much of that is due to the bizarre relationship she had with creepy bad guy William Lewis. Lewis kidnapped and tortured Benson early in the season. Later he broke out of jail, a very Batman super villain thing to do, and in the last episode he once again got his hands on Benson. This time he forces Benson to play a game of Russian Roulette.
In the end Lewis took his own life before the police could take him into custody. That should finally erase the scar of Lewis from Benson’s life, but things are never that easy in the world of SVU. Tonight’s episode, titled Post-Mortem Blues, finds Benson under investigation by Internal Affairs. Will the shadow of William Lewis ever leave poor Olivia alone? Here’s the episode description from NBC.
Sgt. Olivia Benson is investigated by Internal Affairs after William Lewis’ death; as pressure mounts, Olivia has to choose between her convictions and her badge.
Is there really a chance that Olivia will have to fork over her badge tonight?
