Capt. Benson and her NYPD squad fight for justice in cases ripped straight from the headlines.

Matt Roush says...

Mariska Hargitay isn’t letting injuries including a broken knee and a fractured ankle slow her down. As the remarkable 23rd season of the enduring crime drama opens with a two-hour episode, an accident—or is it?—keeps Capt. Olivia Benson (Hargitay) mostly seated, while supervising the rest of the team as they continue their latest sex-trafficking investigation. The target: an entitled and odious congressman (Ben Rappaport) who’s a key player in the sex-for-housing scandal. One complication: an aggressive police chief (Terry Serpico) who wants to rush the case for headline glory while sidelining Deputy Chief Garland (Demore Barnes) from the spotlight. And what’s this about a workplace romance? (We’re not talking Benson-Stabler this time.)
