OMG, guys — Law & Order: SVU is doing a Chris Brown/Rihanna episode.

In the ancient Greek myth about Prometheus, the trickster Titan steals fire from the gods of Olympus to deliver to humankind. As punishment, Zeus chains the immortal Prometheus to a rock and compels a bird of prey (sometimes an eagle, other times a vulture) to eat his liver, which always grows back the next day. It’s a vision of eternal torment, just like Sisyphus pushing a boulder endlessly up a hill or George Orwell’s immortal image of a boot stomping on a face for all eternity.

We are all Prometheus, and Chris Brown is the liver that keeps growing back.

Boom goes the dynamite.

Rihanna tweets at Chris Brown before a court determines whether he violated the terms of his probation for assaulting her in 2009. No words. (Some words.)
