William Lewis (Pablo Schreiber) a serial rapist, who kept evading the law, broke into Detective Olivia Benson's (Mariska Hargitay) apartment, and held her at gunpoint. When the season opens, Benson is beaten, bound and gagged.
Lewis kills two more people, rapes another older woman and tortures Benson. We know she must survive -- she is, after all Benson, and Hargitay signed for the year. But this remains an incredibly tense hour. When she finally frees herself, she snaps, and beats him to a pulp, there wasn't a viewer left unmoved.
