Background information and notes[edit | edit source]

  • This episode marked the program's return to the 10:00pm time period, although it remained on its new night, Wednesday.
  • The costume department had to modify the earrings they had provided for Mischa Barton when they found out that she was unable to wear them. This was because Mischa had only recently had her ears pierced, and had been told she couldn't wear earrings on thin wire hooks for several months afterwards as they could damage the holes in her earlobes. As the earrings the costume department had provided were on that type of wire hook, Mischa had to tell them that she couldn't wear them. So the costume department had the earrings remounted on "post and butterfly" studs that Mischa was able to wear.
  • At the beginning of the episode, Benson identified the first victim as Maggie Sanchez but she was later called Maggie Ortiz.
  • On the NBC website, the summary for Savior states that the baby died on the table after Benson gave the doctors permission to operate. It was also stated by Neal Baer that the baby was dead on Twitter.
  • This is the first appearance of character actor Delaney Williams as defense attorney John Buchanan. This is also the first SVU appearance of award-winning actress Elizabeth Marvel; however, she appears as a NICU doctor and not as recurring character defense attorney Rita Calhoun.
