In this week’s episode, titled ‘Fashionable Crimes’, SVU is back in action as the unit investigate a model who accuses a photographer of raping her during a shoot. It’s been over a month since the last new SVU episode so it’s going to be an epic return for the show. While on the surface it looks like a typical SVU episode, with Munch’s return, it should have a twist or two in it. The photographer, Alvin, is someone that Finn and Munch looked at before, 12 years earlier.
Now of course there is money involved and it will make it harder for SVU to try and figure out how to get Alvin. When Benson sees how the family abandon Nora, she thinks they might be able to break her. But she’s too far under Alvin’s control. Munch steps in and tries to figure out how to take down Alvin. And after some chess moves by Benson and Barba they are able to get through to Nora.
The second twist of the show comes when the unit find that someone show Alvin dead at a fashion show. It should be easy to figure out who did it. Only a few hundred suspects. It quickly gets cut down when they look at the security tape and figure out that it was his brother that shot him. Sick of cleaning up his messes. Can’t say I blame him. He’s got a big mouth.

In the next episode, a woman on a reality dating show says that she was raped but it quickly becomes a circus once the media gets involved.
