This reminds me of the Lawrence Taylor case. Anyway, Andre Braugher is returning as Ellis, which is excellent news. Ellis is the type of guy, it's either you love him or hate him. I can't wait to see him and Cabot square off in court.

Is it just me or did it seem as though Ellis was hitting on Benson at the end of True Believers? Anyway, I would love to find out if she took him up on his offer.

The thing about all the injuries making sports players lose it is actually true in many cases, so I hope they don't misrepresent it or make those who believe it into strawmen. The Chris Benoit double murder-suicide from a few years ago is one of many examples of athletes becoming demented after years of injury.
Ahem. Stepping off my soapbox now; this looks like a good episode!

SVU showrunner Warren Leight has vehemently denied any personal involvement between Bayard Ellis and Olivia Benson.Yet Ellis did stand on the courthouse steps after their court victory and invite her to his daufghter's softball game. And she did take the ticket from him. We shall see. As much as I like Andre Braugher as Bayard Ellis I really don't see these two together.We shall see how this all plays out!Love SVU!
