Did You Know?


This episode is based on the 2014 Isla Vista killings. Holden March is based on the perpetrator Elliot Rodger, who sent an email titled "My Twisted World" to acquaintances and family before going on the shooting. The document quickly became known as his "manifesto". Rodger's had issues feeling he had been rejected by women, despite hardly interacting with them. He also uploaded a video to YouTube (later taken down) before the incident called "Elliot Rodger's Revenge", where he talked of the upcoming attack, and his motives behind it: his desire for revenge against women and sexually active men he perceived to be living a better life than his.

Holden March: All of you beautiful, blonde, unobtainable girls, I forgive you. If it were not for you, I would not be here on the edge of greatness. I could have spent my whole life in the shadows, but I choose instead to fight back, to make sure people remember me, because I know one thing: it is better to die in infamy than to live a life of obscurity.

Now I understand why so many people love this show. Holden is the type of gloriously deranged villain that I usually expected from something like Criminal Minds, and his conversation with Rollins and Amaro is one of the most epic talkdowns I have ever witnessed. His video messages were intensely creepy, especially the one at the end-- although that one offers a ray of hope by revealing that this poor, lonely boy died doing what he loved: attracting attention. Icing on the cake was Benson's heartwrenching struggle to care for her son, her job, her new boss, and her social worker, none of whom have anything better to do except suck up her attention. This is a truly magnificent episode, and it does SVU, along with the whole police procedural genre, proud.
