Olivia Benson is my hero. She's tough but vulnerable all at the same time. The stories are just as heart-wrenching as they have always been, and this one delves a bit more into the personal lives of the detectives, particularly Stabler. Mischa Barton makes a nice getaway from spoiled rich girl Marissa as a young and overwhelmed mother.

The one weakness of the season deals with the ADA. Alex Cabot is back. She's sort of like a cockroach, she just won't die! First she leaves then she comes back and then leaves and now she's back again! The show has struggled to find a decent ADA since Casey Novak was disbarred two seasons ago. Just as we're getting comfortable with Cabot again, she decides all of a sudden that she wants to go prosecute bad guys in Africa. Ummmm, what? Okay, so she's gone again, and they bring in Sharon Stone. Sharon Stone is just painful to watch. She's just awful. It's hard to believe this is the same actress who was nominated for an Academy Award for her role in Casino. Hopefully, we can get it together for Season #12.

This has been, for more than a decade now, my favorite show on television. The stories are powerful and they stick with you. Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni are the heart of this show. I honestly don't think the show would do as well without them. I would, however, like to see more of Munch and Fin. They seem to have sort of dropped into the background and are only in a few scenes of each episode. I remember earlier seasons when there would be an episode or two (or more) when they were the central characters.

The addition of Christine Lahti for the first few episodes was great. I wasn't sure if I was going to like her, but I was pleasantly surprised. I'm glad she didn't stick around for the entire season though. It was great to see Stephanie March back for several episodes. I wish she was back for good, but the way in which she was written out this time (unlike last time when she was put into the witness protection program) was very well done. Overall, this is definitely one of my favorite seasons of the show.

Also, even though the price is (or was...not sure if the current price is what it originally was) a little high, at least the season was released fairly quickly after the season aired on TV. I remember when the show first went on DVD, it wasn't until the 5th season was aired. And even then season 1 wasn't released first. So I'm just glad that NBC/Universal is releasing the seasons like nearly every other show.

McCormack, of WILL & GRACE fame, is the guest star in this episode. He plays a rich jerk who became enamored of a young woman he met through an internet hookup. She turns up dead and he is the chief suspect. McCormack is very good at guesting in these types of roles. He rarely picks a good guy Will Truman role, which he made famous on tv. The newest star to the law and order squad room is Christine Lahti as the prosecuting attorney. She is so powerful an actress that she all but blows the other regular members of the show off the screen. Honestly, if she took over the show at this point, it probably would be a much better show. She is that good. Elliott and Olivia are doing the least for me this season. I think these actors have exhausted their ranges with these characters. They are very close to becoming dull and boring. I probably would stop watching if Lahti had not been added.

As a longtime fan of the Law and Order: SVU series, I own every season of the DVDs and watch them often. I love the show very much and like that the case that holds the DVDs is slim and takes up less space on the shelf, unlike the first few season's packaging. I also like that on the DVD episode selection, it gives you a brief synopsis of the episode and the DVDs also project in high quality. I will definitely be buying Season 12 when it comes out.

I loved this episode.
I will admit I watched it for Wentworth Miller but was unsure of how I would feel about his character...
Nate Kendall is one character I would love to see again,not just because of Miller but because as characters go he was alarmingly wonderful.
The alarming part comes from the cold indifference he shows to everyone in the episode, the rape victim he doesn't want to deal with because 'victims cling', and just about every inappropriate thing that comes out of his mouth afterwards. The character was just so damn intriguing I want to see more of him. I hope his character comes back.

I am still catching up with the earlier series I have ordered. I tend to lean towards the British police shows. However SVU like NYPD Blue is one of the better American police shows out there. Well written scripts, great acting and guest appearences from various actors over the different series. This show keeps getting better and better looking forward to catching up with this DVD I recently purchased. I like the paring of Mariska Hargitay & Chris Meloni the rest of the ensemble cast complete what is a good all round show. Would highly recommend.

Olivia and Elliott make a mistake early on in this episode so they are sidelined so the FBI shrink and Ice T can take a bit more dominant role. I frankly wish this was happening a bit more often as it can get tedious just watching Olivia and Elliott week in and week out. There is a teenage boy who is a suspected murderer who is under investigation this episode. However, the entirety of his past is examined by the detectives and a far more sinister villain comes to light. All in all, an interesting episode although nothing earth shattering.
