The subway station in the opening scene is meant to be West 4th Street (according to the large sign). A passenger also identifies an approaching train as the C, which does stop at West 4th. However, the train is actually the N (according to its logo), and the real subway station is Church Street according to the tiling on the walls. See more »


Odafin Tutuola: [to Karl Sirett about Jackie] So why'd you run when she tried to kill herself?
Karl Serrit: Those guys had it under control.
Odafin Tutuola: Or you knew the cops were on the way and she'd finger you.
Karl Serrit: Finger me for what?
John Munch: We know you like attacking women. Did you go all the way with Jackie?
Karl Serrit: Who's Jackie?
Odafin Tutuola: The girl you followed into the subway. The girl you raped.
Karl Serrit: I told you I never saw that bitch before.
John Munch: [while reading from a file] "I never saw the girl. I never met the bitch." You should get a better story, don't you think?

Chelsea Doe
9 July 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This particular SVU story marks one of the strangest perpetrators they ever encountered. They also get to close the coldest kind of cold case.

Tamara Tunie comes in for some big kudos here. The medical examiner notices a similarity in the pattern of restraint marks on a living victim whose case they just catch and those of on the torso that was found in the Hudson River a few years ago. No head, no limbs, just a torso that was found off the Chelsea piers and hence named Chelsea Doe.

The living victim is teen age Rachel Bella, daughter of Titus Welliver and Cynthia Ettinger. At first glance these people look like a normal happy family. But we gradually learn what a sickie Welliver is and how his warped values are imparted to his family.

And we learn who Chelsea Doe was and how she met her end. I can't say more, this is one to see for yourselves.
