Tonight’s Episode Of SVU Was Very Unusual And Intriguing. I Had No Idea That the Episode Would Turn Out The Way That It Did. As Usual, This Episode succeeded In Keeping Me Interested. After 9+ Seasons, The Series Continues To Be Exciting, and It Continues To Grab My attention. I Would Highly recommend This Show. Watch Law & Order: Special Victims Unit Live: Wednesday’s at 10/9C. On NBC.
