SVU episode ends with a major cliffhanger
On the episode called Can’t Be Held Accountable, viewers saw the SVU squad try to shut down a suspected pedophile. The rich suspect was grooming a detective’s underaged daughters by way of a fitness modeling company.
Detective Frank Bucci, played by actor Nicholas Turturro, ended up enlisting the help of the SVU crew by contacting Detective Rollins, whom he knew from previous work.
Unfortunately, due to the suspect having money and power, he managed to elude doing serious time for any of his crimes. Toward the end of the episode, he was able to have a victory party aboard his yacht with the detective’s two daughters among the guests onboard.
