Law & Order: Special Victims Unit – The American crime show is in talks for the longest-running live-action series that started in 1990. The series has a mix of crime, drama, action, and mystery. It focuses on the Department of Special Victims Unit in the 16th Precinct of the New York City Police Department. The series deep dives into the mysteries and legalities of the crimes that come across.
While mostly all the episodes are works of fiction, some episodes portray real-life stories. The Special Victims Unit mainly focused on crimes that included sexual offenses like rape, pedophilia. Apart from this, they handled cases including children and the elderly who required special care. The officers are shown handling their own life while fighting off the crime happening around them.
‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ Season 23, Episode 7, is going to be released on November 4, 2021, as announced by the officials. Episode seven of season 23 of the series is titled “They’d Already Disappeared.”
The previous episode of the series was named “The Five Hundredth Episode,” which was released on October 21, 2021. It marked the series completing the release of 500 episodes till date, which was a great achievement for a spin-off series. We see Olivia thinking back about her mom while she drops her son to school in this episode. We then see the return of an old character, Nick. Along with Nick, we see Burton Lowe, who was a person Olivia liked previously.
They are together in a case that took place in the past and put the wrong man in jail. So they open up the case once again and use the latest technology to determine, and they indeed find the true killer. Just when Olivia thought everything is fine, Burton is accused of rape by an intern who worked for him 10 years back. Slowly, more women join the girl in her accusations.
Olivia and Burton meet and have an argument, but Burton convinces her that he hasn’t done any such thing. As the episode reaches its end, Olivia realizes her mother protected her from Burton when she was young.
As the title suggests, there is going to be something about disappearance. Since the next episode is said to have a case like never before, that means it includes a serial killer this time. A teenage sex worker is reported missing, and the detectives find a clue in the missing person’s reports. With all these new elements, we can expect a lot of situations to take place in the next episode.
