Did anyone watch this episode last night?  I haven't watched the show in years, but just happened across it after it started.  I'll admit to being hooked in, lol.  It was sad to watch this girl totally bowled over and controlled by this total obnoxious jerk.  There is some controversy over the ending: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/28/svu-chris-brown-rihanna-video_n_2779366.html?icid=maing-grid7%7Cmain5%7Cdl2%7Csec1_lnk2%26pLid%3D276553

Personally, I'm glad how it ended considering how the story line progressed, I hate it when it ends without any real conclusion.  I would have liked to see her stand up for herself at the end instead of clamming up in court, though.    It does send a strong message that abuse is a dangerous and often deadly circle.

I didn't see it, but I will be checking it out online. And as far as the show "taking liberties" with the ending... I don't believe they did. The ending is the reality of many of these types of abuse/reconciliation cases. If just one person recognizes the danger of this kind of pattern and gets out before it's too late, then it's a message well sent.

Very true. It was shocking, but it's what has happened to many women.
