That episode is notable for a red version of the SA grenade appearing on the flag behind the head rapist during their terrorist message video.

The Gamergate episode of SVU is on W right now.

e: the pre-credits involves the crowd chanting "do it do it doit" intercut with the rapists attacking the woman in the bathroom.
"They just leveled up" is one of the worst things I've ever heard on any show. "They're all about the benjamins" from "not Ilhan Omar" is up there too.

Do the detectives ever shoot their guns in this show?

I remembered that Logan ends up killing a undercover cop coming out of a diner in a CI episode. It eventually leads to Cpt. Deakins resigning (cop lied as paid back against Deakins arresting a cop earlier in the season) and leaving the show.

I'm in my re-watch of the first 14 seasons and still no shootings.

The shootings really started picking up in the later seasons, and from what I hear also in the other L&O series. The way it leads to investigations like when Lt. Van Buren shot a mugger or Detective Green's last episode they actually carried some narrative weight, but especially once Bernard joined up they're gunning dudes down like it's no big deal.

SVU had shootings starting in season one and they donít make much of most of them. It feels like most of the time the investigation into it, if they even show it at all, is usually done by the next commercial break.

Fisher Stevens is an awesome defense attorney, I still don't know if his initial "it was God's will" opening statement was a strategic move or if he hosed up by being green. I was worried that it was going to be a plot about a rookie not defending a baby killer zealously enough and the route they instead went with was great. He made Jack so angry.

I wish there was more of him but apparently that was his only episode. That Jewish guy they got for a couple episodes later on who initially looked like a nebbish was similarly entertaining, but he wasn't fresh out of misdemeanor court so it wasn't as funny when he'd be styling on Jack; he didn't get to the point where he'd refuse drinks from the guy after a case.

Randy Dworkin, played by Jesse Peterson. He makes a few appearances through the show. I think the first Dworkin episode is an interesting time capsule because of how Israel is treated. Like, itís so incontrovertibly pure and noble that McCoy really thinks thereís a chance that the bookie might get away with murdering his partner.

Whatís great is Peter Jacobson played Dworkin in the original L&O, then a few years later played the guy running the escort service in the SVU episodes that brought back Brian Cassidy, only to show up again as Dworkin years later for a few more episodes of SVU, notably to defend Barba.

It's been a point of her character ever since she joined the squad that she has absolutely no problem with breaking the rules and / or going against orders when she makes a judgment call, which has led to a fair amount of friction with Benson. If I had to guess, that'll be the impetus behind her departure, she just goes too far off-book in a case.

Kingtheninja posted:

I mean, it's a Dick Wolf show, the cast being a revolving door is very much A Thing. I can't imagine Hyder was a very expensive cast member, so it could be something as simple as her wanting to do something other than a cop procedural entering its 23rd season.

Watching an episode from 2003 about a carjacking which turns out to not be the main plot because they find vials of coronavirus in a cooler in the trunk. I know the original SARS epidemic was a thing back then but it's funny and quaint to run into the 'rona in a pre-Covid world.

So the timeline on this is that the end of OC happened a week after the season finale/season premiere of SVU.

I think it was more interesting if the finales of both happened at the same time.
