** It gets even worse when the truth comes out; despite the victim having ''multiple'' creepy men in her life (including a guy spying on her with cameras planted throughout her home that she never knew about), it turns out the real mastermind behind the attack was [[spoiler: her female roommate and ''best friend'' whom she'd grown up with. She set up a fake e-mail address for the victim and a profile on a hook-up site, then contacted the judge she knew (through the site) had a thing for roleplaying rape fantasies in public, pretending to be the victim and setting up a "scene" at the theatre performance. The friend was angry that the victim always seemed to have things go right for her because she was more physically attractive, including getting the part in the theatre production that the plain-looking roommate had been sleeping with the director for. The most chilling thing? When the victim asks how on earth her best friend could do this to her, she replies without a single shred of remorse, "It's about time something bad happened in your life."]]

** [[https://www.theverge.com/2017/12/29/16830626/call-of-duty-swatting-prank-kansas-man-dead-police-shooting Someone already had]]. Gamers have been using the SWAT teams for what they consider pranks and not understanding the severity of what they're doing. For the records, on average, SWAT is not the team you call for diplomacy. If anything, they're called in when diplomacy fails. They're the "shoot first" division because that's their lives on a daily basis. Now imagine you're sitting down enjoying a game and all of a sudden you got a team of officers breaking into your house armed to the teeth ready to blow your head off because of an "anonymous tipster" who can really amount to a sore loser in a video game. Imagine actually being killed over a video game.

* "Intimidation Game":

to:

* "Spousal Privilege"
** Admittedly, one of their better ones as it illustrates one of the many reasons why it's really hard to leave a domestically abusive situation. A woman (Paula) is constantly making excuses for her husband so she doesn't lose her family even if it means dealing with a shiner every now and again. The audience and detectives clearly see right through her defenses and can see she is literally stuck in a hell in which she and her son either gets battered and beaten by an abusive man who pays for everything and handles the bills; or doesn't and not only has no way to take care of herself but also puts her son's health in jeopardy. Once he's convicted, the cops are sure they've done the right thing but now have no answer for what Paula and her son is supposed to do at this point. With decent subtlety, the show illustrates that many victims are stuck in situations beyond their control with no chance to change anything.

* "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.]]

* "Influence": A teenage girl with bipolar disorder goes off her meds and tries to kill herself in a car accident, injuring six people and killing another girl, who dies from massive internal injuries. Dr. Warner later states that she was trapped under the car for 20 minutes and [[AndIMustScream was likely conscious the entire time.]]

* In the episode “Burned” we get to hear if not see the true pain and suffering a burn victim must endure. We don’t see much of Valerie Sennet after she was set on fire, but we can see her face tense up in fear as the burn ward staff turn on the water sprinkler for her debridement treatment. The doctor treating her says that it will be a very painful debridement and that he doesn’t expect her to survive. We then see the detectives leave the burn ward while Valerie shrieks in agony as her burned skin is literally ripped off her by water sprinklers.

* "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 can never be real, and [[ItsAllAboutMe willing to tear apart two other families to fulfill her selfish desires.]] 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...

** 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 later mentions that there's something "off" about her), 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]].
** 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 scarier: 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?

* "Girl Dishonored": [[HeManWomanHater Tau Omega]] returns, this time when three of their members are convicted of raping a girl. The detectives discover that the fraternity is known as "The Rape Factory" around campus, when they discover many more victims who were forced to keep quiet by the administrators, who sweep Tau Omega's crimes under the rug to preserve the college's reputation. During the trial, the prosecution presents as evidence a T-shirt made by Tau Omega that displays a drawing of a hogtied and gagged woman in a bikini and the words "We don't take no for an answer!"

* 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'."]]
