Law & Order: SVU fans, you’re about to witness the moment Olivia Benson reads the writing on the wall. But as you’ll see in the clip, the officer in charge of helping her is no help whatsoever. RELATED STORIES
New Amsterdam Casts Gina Gershon as Dr. In this exclusive sneak peek at tonight’s episode (NBC, 10/9c), we meet a stripper played by Tonya Glanz (Timeless). “Do nothing Donnie asked what I was wearing,” says another. “A bad dream?” one reads. Literally. That’s where Olivia Benson comes in. After repeated follow-up calls prove fruitless, the woman — who’s also an artist — decides she’s going to channel her frustration in another way. As the Special Victims Unit boss walks a city street with her son, Noah notices some eye-catching posters glued to a wall. She’s been raped at her workplace and has reported the assault to her local police precinct.
Press PLAY on the video above to watch Olivia’s impromptu art appreciation moment, then hit the comments with your thoughts! And the words that accompany that giant image make Benson realize that her workday probably just got a lot more complicated. “Is it a movie?” a confused Noah asks. Series star Mariska Hargitay directed the episode, titled “She Paints for Vengeance.” The hour marks Hargitay’s seventh time helming the procedural. Liv remarks that she’s not sure exactly what they’re looking at, but she does know “It’s certainly not a kids’ movie.”
Olivia is deep in thought about the next poster — which shows a devil simultaneously spearing and slut-shaming an angel — when Noah excitedly alerts her to a mural-size illustration by the same artist.
