|~ Turner antagonizing Elliot Stabler.|
Ken Turner is the main antagonist of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode "Bang". He is a wealthy, charismatic reproductive abuser who impregnates as many women as possible to achieve a sense of power.
He was portrayed by John Stamos.
Turner once worked as an assistant district attorney in New York City, but quit to work as a stockbroker because he wanted more money. A narcissistic sociopath, he employs his charisma to sleep with and impregnate as many women as many women as he can because it gives him a sense of Godlike power. He pokes holes in his condoms so that the women will believe that he did not intend to get them pregnant. After they give birth to his children, he abandons them.
He gets engaged to Dede Aston, a successful real estate saleswoman, but regularly cheats on her with multiple women. He talks her into adopting a baby boy named Jasper, without telling her that he is in fact is his child, conceived with a drug addict named Bridget.
When Jasper is found abandoned in an alley, Special Victims Unit detectives Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler start investigating to find his parents. While talking with Jasper's nanny, Imelda, the detectives find a used condom in the trash, and Imelda confesses that she had invited her boyfriend, Ken, over.
Turner arrives with Aston at the SVU station house, privately tells Stabler that he only had sex with Imelda once. Imelda, however, claims that Turner told her he was going to leave Aston for her, igniting a fierce argument between the two women. As Turner tries to smooth things over with Aston, she tells him he is pregnant with his child, and he promises to help her raise both children. Meanwhile, Aston's neighbor, Wade, confesses to kidnapping Jasper to get him away from Turner, whom he claims has impregnated more than 20 women.
Benson discovers that Turner frequently pokes holes in condoms to "accidentally" impregnate women. She consults with forensic psychiatrist Audrey Shelton, who says that such behavior is typical of reproductive abusers, amoral, narcissistic men who impregnate as many women as they can, often forcibly, in order to have total power and control over them. Benson then talks with Jasper's birth mother, Bridget, who says that Turner forced her to give Jasper up for adoption after getting her pregnant. Benson and Stabler arrest Turner, who is about to impregnate yet another woman, on charges of facilitating an illegal adoption without Bridget's consent.
Stabler interrogates Turner, who brags about his reproductive prowess and insinuates that Stabler, who has five children, is just like him. Turner, who still practices law, then manages to get the charges against him dropped on a technicality. Benson finally manages to get the best of him, however, by contacting 20 women whom he had sired children with and having them confront him in front of Aston. Unfazed, Turner tells the assembled women that he loves them and all their children, and then says that he has in fact father 47 children. Horrified, Aston breaks up with him.
Soon afterward, Turner is found dead behind Aston's apartment, his chest ripped open. Benson and Stabler suspect Wade, and find a wasp knife, which causes anything it stabs to swell up and explode, in his apartment. Wade insists that he is innocent, and that he and Aston are both skin divers, a sport that involves using wasp knives against undersea predators. They interrogate Aston as well, who has an alibi, having had dinner with Turner's other victims and Shelton at the time of his death.
However, Benson and Stabler learn that Shelton had disappeared from the dinner, and suspect her of committing the murder. Sure enough, when they confront her, Shelton confesses to killing Turner. She had been angry that he could destroy so many lives and get away with it, so she invited him to meet with her, intent on castrating him. When he tried to seduce her, however, she flew into a rage and stabbed him with the wasp knife, which she had stolen from Wade's apartment, and watched as he exploded.
