Quotes Edit

Fin Tutuola: I'm good. Bad guy went down, that's all that matters.
Olivia Benson: Well, if you ever feel like talking...
Fin: Talking's overrated.
John Buchanan (to Fin): You must be embarrassed about sending an innocent man to prison for 16 years.
Fin: I didn't convict anyone. I just arrested him. And no, I'm not embarrassed.

Background Information and Notes Edit

  • The episode is based on the case of Steven Avery, a man wrongfully convicted of the rape and attempted murder of a woman in 1985. In 2003, he was exonerated and released from prison due to new forensic evidence, only to be arrested again in 2005 for the murder of another woman. He was convicted of the murder in 2007 and sentenced to life imprisonment without parole. Avery's story was the inspiration for the documentary Making a Murderer.
