In this week’s episode, titled ‘Manhattan Transfer’, Benson and Barba find themselves on opposite ends when a judge is a suspect in a sexual assault. There is not a lot of times that Benson and Barba are not on the same page, but this episode shows that there is a line between law and order and the world of gray that plays in between. Things get weird considering there is a nun, Nina, that is there claiming that she is trying to help the girls.

It’s looking like there isn’t anyone that is clean in the police anymore. This week, we take down a few cops plus a Brooklyn DA and a judge. It hits home for all of them and it’s getting to the point where they don’t know who to trust. With the fact that they have no hard proof and witnesses who are scared, they are going to need to get the physical evidence to put the cuffs on the cops. But how do you try and arrest someone when they know the way that you think? The way that you work?

Fun fact, Michael O’Keefe has made his third appearance on the show, of course playing different characters each time. He was the good guy in one episode, bad in the second. And it didn’t look good for his third. The show touches on a lot of things that we haven’t seen in a while. 1. A priest being shady. 2. Tucker showing that he actual has a human side. It’s his human side that might get Benson in trouble as she loses her unit and Dodds gets control of it.

For the full recap, you can go here.

The show is going to be off the air until March 23rd.
