** And at the end, even though Mia knows that Perry is insane and tried to murder her little sister, she's ''still in league with her,'' as shown by the pinky promise they make at the end. Earlier, the detectives mentioned that she has no other friends who she talks to except Perry. From the looks of it, she's so desperate not to be alone that she'll do anything to keep her only friend, even if that friend is clearly a danger to others. Which is more terrifying: Mia putting her friendship with a serial-killer-in-the-making above her younger sister's safety...or the possibility that Mia might actually ''hate'' her sister to the point of allowing Perry to kill her?

A pimp gets shanked in prison nine times by three men, a 14-year-old hooker is shot along with her john, a hitman is executed by lethal injection in a prison hospital ward, and then: "This is Sergeant Benson, Manhattan SVU! Shots fired at De Witt Clinton Playground!"

** Perry, the crazy friend, is practically the walking embodiment of TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior. Early on, another mom mentions that she goes through a lot of babysitters, and when the detectives check her social media page, they notice that she and Mia, the older sister, seem to be each other's sole confidantes, talking to each other and absolutely no one else. She spins an elaborate story about Glasgowman stabbing Zoe (the little sister) and kidnapping her and Mia, and [[spoiler:when it's proven false, she rants in the interrogation room about how Glasgowman commanded her to spill "innocent blood" and how she stabbed Zoe, killed a cat (which she believed to be Glasgowman) and then stabbed herself. Even when asked on the witness stand if she knew that stabbing Zoe was wrong, she instead rants about how Glasgowman is coming back to kill them all]]. ** And at the end, even though Mia knows that Perry is insane and tried to murder her little sister, she's ''still'' in league with her, as shown by the pinky promise they make at the end.

* In "Dependent", a lawyer's family becomes the target of extremely ominous threats, including swastikas spray painted on the door, garbage left on the doorstep, and the family cat being stolen, ''dismembered,'' and '''''returned to the house in pieces''''' (we only see [[NothingIsScarier a photo of the boxes it came in). To top it all off, they got a letter from a guy whose case the lawyer lost, threatening to burn his house down, rape his wife and daughter, and kidnap his son.

** The images drawn of Glasgowman are quite disturbing, even if the artist that created the character is pretty clearly harmless (if a bit anti-social and quirky).

* The premise of the ''LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' episode "Hammered" isn't anything out of the ordinary: a man wakes up and finds a bludgeoned and raped woman in his apartment and no memory of it because he'd been drinking. The NightmareFuel comes later when ADA Paxton has the crime lab make up a videotape showing the sequence of events in the killing, complete with realistic blood spatter, bloody hammer, and the unblinking, psycho-faced head of their main suspect, played by [[{{Felicity}} Noel Crane]], photoshopped in. * The MindRape games that Elliot and Olivia go through at the hands of [[RobinWilliams Merritt Rook]]. First, Rook tricks Olivia into submitting to him by telling her he's got a bomb and will detonate it if she doesn't obey him. Later, he tells Eliot that he's got Olivia and takes him to a houser that has two rooms separated by a wall and a window. In one of the rooms, we have a bound Olivia whom we can see through said window, and Rook says he's gonna torture her with electricity. To prove it, he closes the window and blocks it with a fold, then presses a button and we hear a female's scream. Which means, he is actually doing it. Then, he keeps pressuring, browbeating and trying to verbally bitchslap Elliot for some of the creepiest last moments of the whole franchise. Elliot doesn't break down, though, and then Rook reveals that the screams were recorded and the newly-released Olivia is unharmed. While it's a relief, it doesn't take the fright from the "torture session" away.

** Are you a teenage girl or young woman, or the parent of a teenage girl or young woman? If so, this episode will ''terrify'' you. Things like this happen in real life with disturbing frequency, so seeing it on the screen, with so much screentime given to the antagonist, is ParanoiaFuel incarnate.

** The climax in particular is nail-biting, as Rollins has to rely only on ThePowerOfActing and her [[MagnificentBitch clever but incredibly risky manipulation]] of Holden to save the hostages, Amaro, and herself. Even when Rollins appears to have the upper hand, it's still terrifying because there's not a whole lot preventing Holden from snapping and just shooting her. [[spoiler:And right when it appears she may be able to disarm him, he's very suddenly killed by a sniper's bullet, so suddenly it almost counts as a JumpScare. And the blood ''splatters all over Rollins''.]] Ick.

* ''Glasgowman's Wrath'' features a take on the SlendermanMythos, which features two teenage girls stabbing one's younger sister and then blaming the eponymous Glasgowman. As the squad investigates, the girls reveal that the older sister was seemingly forced into the act by her friend, who had delusions of Glasgowman. The friend is sent to a psychiatric facility, and the older sister is given a free pass. It seems as though the two were telling the truth, and they'll get the help they need. But at the very end, on the elevator after the trial, as the friend and the older sister stand side by side in the elevator in front of Carisi, [[OhCrap he notices them make a pinky promise behind their backs...]]

* The episode ''Intimidation Game'' which depicts HateDumb in the highest order. A woman who married rich is developing a video game and a gang of misogynistic gamers take offense to this. Starting with simply sending threats to her and assaulting her female employees, when she makes the announcement of her game, they abduct her on stage, causing a black out as a distraction. Then it gets even more depraved; [[spoiler: the gang make and post videos of them beating the woman, raping her and forcing her to call herself a slut and deny her love for her husband. They see it all as a game and consider each video posting a form of "leveling up". When the police finally catch them, they have her wrists taped to a gun and set a trap for her to fire. Even when the gang's leader is killed and the rest are arrested, the poor woman is so broken by the experience, that as far as she's concerned, they won.]] As much as people love to mock this episode, it's not at all hilarious for women gamers and those in the games industry who have experienced harassment in real life.

** In the same episode, the same prodigy has one of the scariest psychotic breakdowns ever in the interrogation room. ''"I just wanted to talk to her, that's all. And take the next ferry back. But she screamed at me! Why was I following her? She called me a loser! She said I was pathetic and dumb and that I was only at Morewood because my family is rich, that I'd never be able to make it on brains alone like her! She tried walking away, and so I grabbed her arm, and she pushed me! So I jabbed her chest with my pen, and she pushed me again! And so I pulled her hair, and I slammed her head into the railing,'' '''''[[PunctuatedPounding OVER! AND OVER! AND OVER AGAIN!"]]'''''

She wasn't a sociopath or a serial killer, she didn't come from a poor or abusive family, she had no FreudianExcuse like most criminals under 18 have on this show. She cracked from a combination of pressure to keep up her grades at her elite private school and the drugs she was taking to improve her performance, which caused her to stay awake for ''six days''. It's terrifying to think that a few outside factors could drive even the most normal person to insanity.
