Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

Episodes

24 Episodes 2013 - 2014

The 15th season of this crime drama picks up where the previous season left off, with Benson (Mariska Hargitay) being held captive by serial killer and rapist William Lewis (Pablo Schreiber). The events of that harrowing situation haunt Benson throughout the season, and Lewis makes several return appearances, both in her dreams and in person. Two longtime cast members make their exits this season: Sgt. Munch (Richard Belzer) and Capt. Cragen (Dann Florek). Meanwhile, Rollins (Kelli Giddish) sees her gambling habit return with a vengeance. Guest stars include Cybil Shepherd as a celebrity chef involved in a racially motivated shooting; Jonathan Silverman as a comedian who jokes about rape; and Bradley Whitford as a TV producer whose ex-wife accuses him of molesting his own daughter.
