‘Law & Order: SVU’ season 15, episode 7 preview: A particularly chilling ‘Dissonant Voices’

The latest -Is next week’s “Law & Order: SVU” going to be particularly chilling? We imagine so, and the best way to describe it right now is that this may “not be for the faint of heart.” This is the sort of hour where if you are uncomfortable watching the preview below, you’re going to be uncomfortable watching the episode itself. It may be one to DVR if you are sensitive, and then take a look at some of the reviews before watching it.

You can basically get a sense of the story in the promo, as a music mogul and reality TV personality is accused of unspeakable acts towards children, which are claims that he vehemently denies. There is also some sort of ending that will completely blow our minds, but that sort of promotional tag almost feels a little bit awkward considering what we just sat through.

For some more specific details, read the synopsis below if you haven’t seen it already:

“Singing coach Jackie Walker is at the height of his career, with a featured role on television’s biggest reality show, “American Diva,” and a steady position teaching music at a prestigious New York City school. When a four year-old student comes forward with claims of sexual abuse, Detective Rollins asks the squad to be mindful of Walker’s reputation, but Benson’s investigation uncovers evidence that condemns the popular personality. As the case becomes public, more and more victims come forward, but Walker refuses to come clean.”

When you look at the issue of whether or not the series should be addressing some of these sort of subjects in primetime, the answer is that they should given that the show is all about trying to take on heinous criminals and bring them to justice, even when it is not easy. The truth here is that you are going to be constantly running up a slippery slope if you are going to try to please the comfort level of everyone, and figure out what they are okay with watching. At least this episode will bring attention to the issue, and also show justice prevail (or at least we hope so).

What do you think about the choice to air this episode now, and is it a little much for you in your opinion? Click here to read some more news on “Law & Order: SVU,” and we will have more on the show very soon.
