I totally get that Brooke Shields’ new character isn’t some hardened criminal, filthy rapist or corrupt cop destined to keep Benson in constant danger, and that she has her own set of defendable rights to seek custody of the orphaned Noah. And I see how, in theory, that stake in motherhood (or in grandmotherhood, in this case) should ideally have some Law & Order: SVU fans on Sheila’s side. But she’s totally trying to split Noah and Benson apart, all while Benson is having to wrap her head around the knowledge that Ellie had lied about both of her parents being dead.
