<I>Lost</I> Plots <I>Law & Order: SVU</I> Should Steal

Law & Order: SVU has tapped Henry Ian Cusick to play a love interest for Mariska Hargitay's Benson. Cusick, who played Lost's dreamy Desmond, will appear on two or more episodes as a graphic designer named Eric Weber. It might be enough to get me to tune into this cop show. What would really get me interested in it, though, is if they not only took Cusick, but also borrowed some plots from Lost and changed things up so it wouldn't be an ordinary procedural. Below are our ideas for how these plots could be implemented.

Sex Trafficking Hatches
There have been reports of secret hatches that are deep below New York City, and each one has a different sex crime being committed inside. The team has to find each hatch and put a stop to the horrors using only various vague logos that keep popping up as clues.

Time Travel to '70s
Due to a time anomaly, Benson and Stabler get sent back several decades to the '70s while Fin and the rest of the division are stuck in the present. It's like Lost meets Life on Mars as Benson's subjected to sexist remarks everywhere she goes.

Trapped on an Island
While digging the long-promised Second Avenue subway line, a crew bumps an underground frozen donkey wheel causing the entire island of Manhattan to move. With the ensuing chaos and rioting from angry city dwellers, crime is running rampant and it is the detectives job to hunt down the worst criminals and find someplace to put them.

Plane Crash
A plane crashes in Manhattan and the detectives are tasked with tracking down a cult who took all of the children who survived the crash before the police got to the scene. No reason will ever be given for the kidnappings.

Smoke Monster
A strange smokey creation is coming up out of the sewer grates and causing sex-addicts around town to be killed in some torturous ways. While Stabler appreciates that his job is being taken care of, he feels obligated to put a stop to this vigilante sort of justice.

You Say "Constant," Some Say "Stalker"
Benson thinks that Weber is flirty and fun, but she's sort of disturbed by the fact that he keeps dropping by to see her at work, claiming that he needs to talk to her on a regular basis or he'll get nosebleeds that could cause his head to explode.
