Law & Order: Special Victims Unit Season 6 Episodes

23 Episodes 2004 - 2005

The sixth season of this crime drama, which often deals with sexual-assault cases, features an episode with an open-ended conclusion at the end of a rape trial. The case centers on a college student (Shannyn Sossamon) accusing her professor (Billy Campbell) of rape, while he claims they had consensual sex. The episode ends without viewers ever hearing the jury's verdict. Also during this season, Stabler (Christopher Meloni) sees his longtime marriage begin to crumble as he and his wife undergo a separation. Season 6 guest stars include Martin Short as a psychic and Matthew Modine as a serial killer.
