* Good Lord, does the episode "Bully" have its fair share. A woman is found dead in her apartment, dead of a [[SlashedThroat severed carotid artery]] which produced ''so'' much blood, it not only dripped down onto a blank canvas of an artist holding a show downstairs, but he then used [[{{Squick}} a bucket of her blood to paint with.]] She was also shown to be sexually assaulted and her autopsy discovered she had an elevated blood alcohol level and that she was pulling out her own hair from stress, which she got from her job. Turns out, she was taping her boss, who was a workplace bully who would slap her. After the world discovered what kind of a person she was, she held a press conference, blamed everyone else for her behavior and committed suicide by [[BoomHeadshot shooting herself in the head.]] Eventually, the real killer emerged as [[spoiler: her [[InformedAttractiveness "handsome"]] younger male employee who tried to get her to join the other coworkers in buying out their boss. He said that he just pushed her down in an argument, she fell onto a coffee table and cut herself on glass. What makes it worse, however, is the fact that in order to make it look like she had done it to herself, he then shoved the bottle of wine she had [[AssShove up the other end]], which is a trick he learned from his mother, an alcoholic and former opera singer who did it to preserve her voice.]] Which Warner also told the detectives about as an old trick used by teenaged girls. Benson acted as an AudienceSurrogate by saying [[BrainBleach "file that under 'Things-I-Never-Wanted-To-Know'."]]

* "Vanity's Bonfire": The character of Dia Nobile, a mentally unstable photographer who became a {{Yandere}} for Kent Webster, a married lawyer she had an affair with, using his semen to conceive a baby behind his back and [[StalkerWithACrush befriending his daughter to get information on their family.]] When Kent's father had a lawyer place the baby girl, Tessa, with adoptive parents, Dia began plotting to take her back, stalking the parents and decorating her own loft to look exactly like Tessa's bedroom, eventually kidnapping her, which begins the plot of the episode. Notably, unlike most SVU villains, she's not a sadist or a sociopath playing games for her own amusement. She [[BelievingTheirOwnLies has convinced herself beyond all reason]] that Kent wants to leave his wife and daughter to form a new family with her and baby Tessa. When Kent rejects her, she punishes him by leaking details of their affair to the press, ''on the day of his and his wife's anniversary'' (which she was almost certainly aware of, considering her stalking habits). She is utterly lost and delusional, clinging to a fantasy that never could have been real, and willing to tear apart two other families to make it happen. Even her voice is high-pitched and strangely childlike, adding to her image as a PsychopathicWomanchild. It makes one wonder what happened in her past to make her so deranged...
** On the side of Tessa's adoptive parents, there's a lot of AdultFear to be had. Imagine that you and your husband have a baby through a surrogate mother, then a few months later, she's kidnapped by a complete stranger who claims to be her biological mother. Then you find out that not only is your baby actually this woman's child, but not even biologically your child and was conceived from a completely different set of parents. [[FromBadToWorse On top of]] ''[[FromBadToWorse that,]]'' it turns out your lawyer faked your adoption papers without telling you and there's a chance that this crazy woman might actually get custody of your child, leading the judge to order your child temporarily remanded to foster care until things can be sorted out. [[spoiler:Thankfully, Dia is dead by the end of the episode, meaning that Tessa was likely returned to her adoptive parents, but we never actually see the outcome...]]

* In "Born Psychopath", 10 year old Henry has no soul, pushing his sister down the stairs and slicing his mother's hand open with a knife. He then tries to kill his sister and locks his mom in the laundry room, then goes to his friend's apartment, ties him up and drowns his dog in the bathtub [[NothingIsScarier (we only get to see its leash draped over the faucet),]] after that he takes a five year old hostage with a gun and shoots Amaro, who is thankfully saved by his bulletproof vest. When Rollins asks him why, he tells her that he wanted to see if she would melt from the inside out and he thinks he didn't do anything wrong. Just before the credits he fakes tears and says the's sorry but he very quickly drops the act, and it's very clear to see that this kid is beyond help. It's a scary thought to think that your kid could be a heartless, soulless monster. Even [[BadassPacifist Huang]] was freaked out by this kid.[[note]]Even worse is that some children [[http://www.sott.net/article/235158-Bad-to-the-bone-Some-children-are-just-born-evil are like this in real life.]] Henry was never bullied and his family, for the most part, treats him well but still chooses to do so simply because he wants to without remorse.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* "Raw" centers around a shooting at an elementary school, injuring multiple students and killing one. The family of one of the injured students had just moved to the city a month prior and didn't know anyone in the area yet, and when the shooters' motivations come to light later, it's implied that their daughter wasn't meant to be a target of the shooting at all. The parents of the boy who was killed in the shooting had recently adopted him, thinking they were saving him from a terrible life in his home country, only for him to be murdered on a playground. [[spoiler: The latter gets even worse at the end of the episode; it turns out that the parents were the ones who organized the shooting so that they could get money from the life insurance policies they took out on him. They literally adopted an innocent child just to have him murdered for the money.]]
