Want to know what lies ahead when it comes to Law & Order: SVU season 20 episode 5? This one may be ripped from the headlines…

There’s a good chance that if you’ve been reading the news as of late, you will have heard a thing or two about NXIVM. They are a controversial organization that has come under fire for a number of different reasons; we suggest that you look up Allison Mack’s connection to them for a little bit more information.

While SVU is fictional by nature, we certainly know that there are many cases that tend to be based, at least in part, on real-life circumstances. This one appears to be one of these said instances, with Sebastian Roche being one of the big-name guest stars here as the man in charge of the cult in Arlo Beck.

For some other information, CarterMatt has the Law & Order: SVU season 20 episode 5 synopsis below:

10/18/2018 (10:00PM – 11:00PM) (Thursday) : A member of a women’s empowerment group is found murdered, leading the cops to the group’s charismatic male leader. Meanwhile, Rollins (Kelli Giddish) keeps her pregnancy under wraps to avoid going on desk duty. Also starring Mariska Hargitay, Ice T and Peter Scanavino. Guest starring Sara Carter (Lilah Finch), America Olivo (Claudia Bell), Lexi Lapp (Vicky Parson), Lili Simmons (Gina Goodrich) and Sebastian Roche (Arlo Beck). TV-14 D, L, V

The personal story for Rollins is absolutely a big one, and we’re very much happy to see that SVU is taking on this true-to-life story. Amanda’s not the sort of character who wants to be treated differently depending on what is happening with her personal life. She wants to be out on the street as long as possible.
