In the previous episode of Law & Order SVU, we saw a really messed up case in which it was later revealed that a 14-year-old missing girl was carrying their family friend’s pastor’s baby. As if this were not enough, both of the girl’s parents have a physical relationship with the pastor. Now fans can’t wait to find out what Law & Order SVU Season 23 Episode 21 has in store for them.
What Happens in Law & Order SVU Season 23 Episode 21?
It’s normal for fans to have lingering questions about what’s going to happen in the next episode after watching the exciting final installment. Well, thankfully the network has released the synopsis for the next one to give us an idea of what to expect from it. Here’s the episode recap: “If the only evidence in a crime is a church confession, Carisi must find another way to prove his suspect guilty. Benson agrees to meet up with an old friend who wants to make amends for past offenses.”
The synopsis hints that in Law & Order SVU Season 23, Episode 21, Carisi will attempt to gather evidence against a suspect, against whom she only has a church confession. On the other hand, the episode will also see Benson meeting an old friend after a long time in an attempt to right his past mistakes.
A quick summary!
The episode started with Olivia sitting in a cafe with her son. Noah surprised his mother with a collage of photos of them together that made her cry. They ran into Stabler, holding a bunch of flowers, on the street after they left the restaurant. He wished Olivia a happy Mother’s Day. The case of the episode was a 14-year-old girl who went missing. Her parents convinced Benson’s unit that she was only there for a short period of time with a preacher.
The preacher in question had a record of taking care of young girls by associating with their mothers. We found out that the pastor hit the girl’s mother. Benson and his companions followed the preacher and the girl to a cottage and arrested them. But she believed that their union was the will of God, and she refused to accompany the police. The pastor had done this to every parent, Benson realized. In a circumstance like that, he’d have dirt on them.
The pastor was eventually released on bail. Shortly afterwards, the young lady stole away from her family to see him and get married. “She cried out that she was carrying God’s baby!” when the SVU stopped the ceremony. Beth agrees to a pregnancy test, which reveals that the priest is the father, giving rise to an accusation of rape II.
