Did You Know?


When the show opens, you see the table that Detective Benson is tied to and it is perfectly clear of anything. When Lewis turns the radio on to let the squad know that they are playing Russian Roulette and he is "Sliding the gun" to Benson, you can clearly see a white rope on the table. In the very next scene, when she picks the gun up, the rope is no where to be seen for the rest of the show. See more »

William Lewis: Super Devil Michael Meyers
15 February 2015 | by xhidden99See all my reviews

Don't worry William Lewis hyper ultra super criminal will of course be back. He never goes away. He will return to kill the entire jury in his next trial in front of the judge and he will get off and Olivia will be indicted for capital murder because that's how Tucker in IAB rolls. Then Tucker will need SVU help in catching some other dirty cops which they will of course comply with. Then at the end of that ep Olivia will litter and Tucker will come after her for first degree war crimes. Law and Order REALLY REALLY REALLY overplayed their hand with the William Lewis story. It's retarded insanely stupid at this point. Soon every cop in the NYPD be in jail IAB will be trying to get every rapist freed from the clutches of the dirty police.
