A woman leaves her son with a babysitter and drives off to a boyfriend’s house. But when she gets there, it’s to find him shot dead. Then, thanks to concerned calls from neighbors, the police arrive and arrest her for murdering him.
Her name is Jesse, and she’s a rape victim who worked with the SVU in a difficult case. She passed out at a club and could barely recall the details of her own rape before being taken home- rather forcibly- by Tommy, that now deceased significant other.
Jesse had been seeing another man, Michael, who claimed that he had only picked her up and dropped her off again outside the club. She, however, claims her raped her. However, she also made up another story before getting to that point. Besides this, Michael is a CI with ties to the lawyer now prosecuting Jesse. Barba knows they have a lot before them, especially with the details of the original rape case, but rallies all the detectives anyway.
Michael is a married man, which Jesse didn’t know until the middle of their night together. She tried to say no, and he ignored her. But he maintained that Tommy, who was abusive, was more likely to have done the damage. Now, the opposing DA wastes no time in taking Jesse to the stand and in getting the judge to have her locked up with a bail that she can’t pay. She’s dragged away asking what’s going to happen to her son, and begging Olivia for help.

Law and Order: SVU S14E11: Beautiful Frame
Jesse explains that she went to meet Tommy and tried to help him when she found him shot. While she was on the phone with 911, officers arrived and arrested her. The gun used in the actual murder belongs to a store owner who claims Jesse stole it after they slept together. That’s a lie- he actually gave the gun to Michael, who was claiming to be a friend. Michael also told him to make up the story about Jesse. The detectives and Barba arrest him on conspiracy to commit murder.
But, they did, and thanks to the fact that the Manhattan detectives are the only police force in New York that can find their asses in the dark, they were able to uncover the frame job, get the blackmailed witnesses to recant, and take down the bad guy.
I have to admit, this episode was a let down. We were promised a deep-seeded conspiracy, but all we got was one charismatic a-hole and a really blind DA (played by Jane Kaczmarek). I was expecting a much more intricate plot, especially since Kaczmarek is such a dynamic actress. I feel like she was really under-utilized here.
One of the things that has always annoyed me about SVU is that one week can be chock full of back story details about the detectives and the next week can be totally devoid of anything personal. This week was one of the off weeks. There was certainly no hints about the identity of Benson’s mystery Christmas date that caused so much speculation after last week’s belated episode. The general consensus seems to be that it’s not Stabler?but why would they go to such lengths to hide the guy’s face if it was just someone random or someone we’ve seen her with before?
Ah well. The world may never know. That how SVU rolls.
