I accept the fact that I may be the only person in the world watching the new episodes of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. I acknowledge that I have A Condition that makes me hang on to shows like The Mentalist and *NCIS *long after others have fled to safety.
But come on. The guy who kidnapped Olivia and held her hostage for four days while he murdered other people and made her watch is claiming that the spree was consensual, that he is the victim, and, acting as his own defense attorney, HE gets to grill Benson mercilessly on the stand in front of a jury???
Has there ever been a real-life case where a particularly loathsome defendant acted as his own counsel and thus got to cross-examine and terrorize his victims in court? I’m guessing that this probably *has *happened IRL.
Just when Olivia thought it was safe to go home, looks like the bad guy is going to escape from prison by faking a heart attack.
