Law & Order: SVU – A Mother and Son Face-Off in Court (Episode Highlight)

♪ – Mr. Barba,
are you ready to begin your cross-examination
of the defendant? – No, Your Honor. I’d like to recall a witness: Luke Keller. Luke, did you intentionally
shoot Trey Franklin because you were angry at him for being
in a sexual relationship with your mother? – No. That’s not true. I shot him because I thought
he was raping her. – And why did you think that? – Because she looked me
in the eye and yelled, “Help. He’s raping me.” ♪ – Members of the jury,
have you reached a verdict? – We have, Your Honor. – What say you? – On the charge
of second degree murder, we find the defendant guilty. On the charge of third degree
rape of a minor, we find the defendant guilty. – The state of New York
thanks you for your service. Court is adjourned. – Luke! I love you.
– Nicole, no. – And I forgive you! I do! Do you hear me?
Do you hear me? I’m still your mother! I’ll always be your mother,
no matter what you’ve done! I will always be your mother! – Let’s go.
– Congratulations, Lieutenant. You’ve convinced my son
I’m the devil. – No, Nicole. You did that all by yourself. – You okay? Look. He’s a strong kid.
He’ll be fine. – You really believe that? – [sighs] Can I buy you a drink? – No, thanks.
I got to go home to see Noah. I got to– I just want to be with my boy. ♪


  1. WOW. This was one of the most powerful episodes I've seen in a while.
    Seeing the mother actually try to send her own innocent son to jail was one of the saddest scenes I've seen. Masterfully directed by Mariska!
    HAPPY 400th SVU!!

  2. Seeing how that woman DARED to call herself a mother makes my blood boil! I'm glad she went to Jail. Were it up to me, she'd be in hell!

  3. Craziest episode I've seen in SVU but I love to see that arrogant lawyer get beaten by ADA Barba in every case in court ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Šโ˜๏ธโš–๏ธ

  4. One of the best episodes of SVU in awhile. Everything about it was great. A few episodes this season have been predictable but not this one, Mariska Hargitay has an eye for directing as well

  5. This boy shot his best friend to protect his mother because she screamed rape. She thought she had a strong case to stay safe. Then when things get rough, she throws her own son under the bus to save face. She was willing to sacrifice not just one, but two innocent lives to make herself safe. And she FORGIVES him because he refused to throw away his own life. She is no mother. She is a monster.

    Sidenote: Barba is the BEST!!!

  6. No words can describe how unbelievably wrong it was if what that woman did & what she was still doing! That sickness Lukeโ€™s father was talking about that his ex-wife had, Iโ€™m guessing thereโ€™s no cure for that is there?

  7. You do realize what is coming your way, donโ€™t you? These latest indictments are just the tip of the iceberg.

  8. She's a Sociopath, she have sexual desires on underage boys, and took advantage of Luke's emotional vulnerable state to get away with murder. That's really messed up.

  9. What's scary that there are people out there and they r parents too. This is one reason I support right to choice for abortion issue. Some people should not be parents at all.

  10. I agree with you i thought that this was messed up how this kids mom was looking at him like she wanted him to lie to the judge about something like this. That's not being a mom at all. I feel so sorry for kids that actually have to put up with this kind of crap in there lives.

  11. Too late, I know, but I wish Barba had offered to bring takeout to Olivia's for Noah, Olivia, and himself, after she said no thanks and just wanted to go home to Noah.

  12. ๐Ÿ˜š๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ‡๐ŸŽ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿฅ‰๐Ÿฅˆ๐Ÿฅ‡๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽน๐Ÿšบ

  13. ADA Barbra ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’– legit will always be the best!!!
    Of course Iโ€™ve seen all the other SVU episodes & love all the other lawyers but omg Barbra is just amazing !

  14. When Benson says โ€œno Nichole…you did that all on your ownโ€ omg gave me shivers!!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
    Detective Benson ๐Ÿ’•

  15. Am looking for a one where serena southernlyn cross examin the detective then gave a speech ending with " an eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind"

  16. That's a horrifying story my god SMH ๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‘ that's so incredibly Fu**ked up I'm sorry.

  17. Great series ….The issues are tricky but highly interesting, the actors are awesome. Liv Benson ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  18. Mariska is such a talented actor. The pain and emotion she is able to display is seriously impressive

  19. People like this woman here are clearly the puppets of the devil himself, thatโ€™s why there is no cure for their so called disorders itโ€™s all spiritual except for one thing and that is Jesus Christ. Perhaps her spending the rest of her life in prison will help her reflect on what she has done and seek redemption. Itโ€™s happened to quite a few people who seemed irredeemable yet with Christ all things are possible.

  20. I love the very good Christopher Meloni, Dean Winters, Richard Belzer, Dann Florek and other very good actors and actresses who have been apart of and made a lasting impact on Law And Order SVU, I miss them all but the person made the most and lasting impact on the show is Mariska Hargitay who plays Captain Olivia Benson for the past 20 years, she is the heart and soul of the show and also it's moral authority, I believe it wouldn't have lasted 20 now 21 seasons without her, I love her, she is the best.

  21. The other lawyer is meant to piss us off. Go watch The Wire aka the greatest show ever and you can see the same actor do an amazing job pulling off the jolly fat man while also being bitingly sarcastic.

  22. "congratulations, lieutenant. you've convinced my son that i'm the devil."
    "no, nicole. you did that all by yourself."


  23. The mom is a literal narccist. Mental gymnastics that make them ACTUALLY beleive their versions of the trruth are correct
