Talk about conspiracy. On the Wednesday, March 2 episode of Law & Order: SVU, titled "Manhattan Transfer," the SVU squad went undercover to bust up an underage sex party, but it wasn't that simple. Carisi (Peter Scanavino) spotted high-ranking officials including a judge, an ADA and other high-ranking officials. Things escalated quickly and it looked like SVU messed up a vice operation...or did they?
After a ton of investigation, with the help of Sister Nina (Orange Is the New Black's Abigail Savage), the team started piecing things together. And the Catholic Church was involved. Tucker (Robert John Burke) went to see his cousin, Father Eugene, about the underage girls. Then the girl showed up dead. Was it the cops? Was it the church? These are the questions everybody was asking. After an intense confrontation between Tucker, Father Eugene and Benson (Mariska Hargitay), the monsieur went to Barba (Raul Esparza) with intense allegations against Tucker. According tot their story, the church officials went to Tucker a year ago with allegations of police involvement in the sex ring. Did that happen? That's what Barba wants to know.
Barba confronted Benson about it and learned Tuckson was a thing. Yes, Tucker and Benson are an item and she's now implicated with everything. Tucker was asked to come in first thing in the morning, but Benson was require to come in immediately. She's out. Done. Dodds (Andy Karl) is now in charge of the special victims unit. Goodbye Benson?
What do you think happens next? Will Benson get her job back? If so, how?
