The New York crime fighting team will investigate a Wall Street magnate in Law and Order SVU season 18 episode 14 this week.
Billionaire Eli Colton (Tate Donovan) will be the center of SVU’s investigation after an investment banker (Missy Peregrym) accuses him of rape. Apparently, the two had spent a night together but the banker had a different story.
Peregrym’s character seeks help from SVU and tells Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) what happened. The banker said she attended a party at Colton’s penthouse to celebrate the latter’s latest acquisition. Colton’s firm is her bank’s biggest client.
However, it seems like Peregrym’s character changes her mind about testifying against Colton later on. It appears that the billionaire offers her something in exchange for her silence.
In a sneak peek for Net Worth episode, she is seen talking to Olivia, informing her that Colton would give her up to $5 million to keep her quiet. Detective Fin Tutuola (Ice-T) is then seen telling the investment banker that she should testify. Fin says in the teaser:
“We have another victim and I think she deserves justice.”
Rizzoli & Isles star Jordan Bridges will play Peregym’s character supervisor Roger Littrell. Will Brill, Kevin O’Rourke, and Erica Sweany will also appear in the episode.
Olivia’s # 2 in SVU
It looks like Olivia will finally have her second-in-command.
E! News shared a sneak peek for the upcoming episode showing Detective Sonny Carisi (Peter Scanavino) following around Det. Tutuola and asking him about the status of his sergeant exam. Fin could be Benson’s No. 2.
It can be recalled that when Olivia got promoted to lieutenant in the previous season, she offered to Fin the post to be her second-in-command. The detective, however, turned it down.
Olivia was then forced to accept the appointment of Sgt. Mike Dodds (Andy Karl), the son of Chief William Dodds (Peter Gallagher) as her sergeant. Mike was killed in the season 17 finale.
In the current season’s episode 9, Benson told Carisi and Detective Amanda Rollins (Kelli Giddish) that Fin is taking some time off in order to study for the upcoming sergeant exam. Did Fin pass the exam? And will he finally accept Olivia’s offer?
