Public Service Announcement: “rape” is not a synonym for every fucking mundane occurrence you happen to suffer. You were not “raped” by your test. You have not been “raped” when you lose your sports game, and it isn’t “rape” when your best friend tries to hug you.
Maybe take a step back and think about what the hell you’re actually saying before you trivialize something so devastating.
Warren had us believing for 3 months that Cragen had killed a girl. We waited 17 episodes to find out who Olivia was dating. I don’t think he’s going to clear up Olivia’s story line by the end of the hour next Wednesday. I think we’re going to be panicking for the next 4 months. Or at least til we’re 100% sure she’s coming back.
“The season finale is somewhat of a shock, [Warren Leight] did a great job of constructing an episode that not only sums up everything that most fans seek - but also gives the audience a taste of what’s to come, whether that be a new season or a movie. Olivia surprises everyone, even Cragen, with a moment that no one, not even Olivia herself expects. Cassidy will be devastated too, but he knew it was coming.”
