Law & Order: Svu Season 21 Episode 5 Review: At Midnight in Manhattan

Whoa, talk about intense.

Law & Order: Svu totally broke the unrealistic trope of TV cops focusing on only one case at a time.

Chloe's parents could have destroyed the entire case. They tried to pressure Chloe into identifying the wrong man, and she initially obliged.
