How does it feel, Detective Benson, to have your credibility shattered and your life in ruins?
~ Detective Eric Plummer tauting Detective Olivia Benson while holding a woman hostage.

Eric Plummer is the main antagonist of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode "Wrath". He is a serial killer who murders people connected to cases investigated by Detective Olivia Benson as revenge for Benson's role in his unjust imprisonment years earlier.

He is portrayed by Justin Kirk.


Plummer was imprisoned for a rape that he did not commit. During his incarceration, his wife divorced him, and he was beaten, raped, and tortured by the other inmates. After being exonerated seven years later by new DNA evidence, Plummer changed his name and began working at Baseline Labs, all while planning his vengeance against Detective Olivia Benson, who had investigated his case and testified against him.

He murders four people connected to cases Benson investigated during her police career; he sees them as Benson's victims, like him, who need to be put out of their misery. Plummer then holds a woman at gunpoint in front of Benson. She tries to convince him to stand down by promising him that she will testify on his behalf and admit full responsibility for putting in prison unjustly. However, Plummer refuses the offer, tells her there are no bullets in his gun, and prepares to kill the hostage. Benson shoots him dead, and then finds out his gun is indeed not loaded; Plummer had used her to commit suicide-by-cop.
