The next new episode of “Law & Order: SVU” is coming to you on Wednesday night, and the more that we see about “Forgiving Rollins,” the more that it is pretty clear to us that this is going to be a very emotional episode in many ways.
The brand-new script tease below comes courtesy of showrunner Warren Leight, and it features a discussion between Reese, a woman who is facing a horrible decision after facing assault at the hand of Deputy Chief Patton (Harry Hamlin), and Amanda Rollins (Kelli Giddish). If there is anyone who can relate to what Reese is going through, it’s Rollins. She has been there, and felt the pain of what transpires behind closed doors. Also, she has suffered through trying to figure out how she can gather the strength to speak out herself.
While this script tease seems to be for a very significant scene, it is probably still not the climax of this episode. While “SVU” is not a show where the good guys always win, we do feel like Rollins will be able to lead the charge against Patton, and eventually take this man down.
In the end, this is a powerful story about assault within the police force, and we are happy to see the show taking on these issues head-on. Also, we do admit that we are also pleased that Giddish is getting such a great opportunity to shine in this arc.
