Detective Amanda Rollins (Kelli Giddish) is in for a family visit in Thursday's episode of Law & Order: SVU.

In "Eternal Relief from Pain," Lindsay Pulsipher returns as Rollins' sister Kim, stirring up trouble (no surprise) and a possible SVU investigation (again, no surprise) when she reports a doctor who trades prescription painkillers for sex.

The CBS drama's 15-season run ranks in the top 10, but it's not number one. Can you guess which series is?

Pulsipher has appeared in four previous episodes of SVU. Her introduction came in Season 14's "Friending Emily," and she was last seen in Season 18's "Heightened Emotions."
