Amanda Rollins is going back to school to befriend a suspicious college professor on Thursday’s episode of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.” And she’s doing it in style.
In the clip above, which is exclusive to TheWrap, Rollins (Kelli Giddish) gets into character by dawning a pair of glasses and a chunky sweater to nail that grad student look. She’s auditing a psychology class taught by a professor played by Adam Arkin, who the “SVU” team thinks that has something to do with the disappearance of a missing tourist. At the end of his lecture, she goes down to talk to him and gets herself invited over to his place that night for an intimate study session.
This is for sure gonna end well, right? Right, we didn’t think so.
Here’s the official description for tonight’s episode, which is titled “We Dream of Machine Elves”:
Rollins goes undercover to find a suspect who is drugging and assaulting tourists, while Benson helps the victims sort out their memories from their hallucinations. Starring Mariska Hargitay, Ice T, Kelli Giddish, Peter Scanavino and Jamie Gray Hyder. Guest starring Demore Barnes, Adam Arkin, Eve O’Brien and Amy Hargreaves.
