10:00 PM 1.0 LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT
DEMONS - SEASON PREMIERE
A SERIAL RAPIST IS RELEASED FROM JAIL AND DETECTIVE STABLER GOES UNDER COVER TO STOP HIM BEFORE HE STRIKES AGAIN--ROBERT PATRICK GUEST-STARS--After 21 years, sex offender Ray Schenkel (guest-star Robert Patrick) is released from jail. Retired officer William Dorsey (guest-star Robert Walden) who initially locked him up, is convinced he'll offend again and begs Detectives Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Stabler (Chris Meloni) to put him away for good. Stabler goes undercover to see if Dorsey is correct and in doing so befriends Schenkel, posing as a sex offender on parole and earning his trust. As the investigation unfolds, Stabler sets Schenkel up, but this time he doesn't take the bait. When Stabler's cover is blown, the investigation is not only compromised, but Stabler finds his life in danger. Dann Florek, Richard Belzer, Diane Neal, Ice-T, B.D. Wong, and Tamara Tunie also star.
