Did You Know?

This episode features a Bond girl and a Bond villain: Carey Lowell (Jamie Ross) played Pam Bouvier in Licence to Kill (1989) while Yaphet Kotto (Al Giardello) played Dr. Kananga (Mr. Big) in Live and Let Die (1973).See more »
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): During a stakeout at a cemetery, Richard Belzer's character mentions that Montgomery Clift and Walt Whitman were buried in the cemetery. Clift is buried in Prospect Park in Brooklyn and Walt Whitman is buried in Camden, NJ.See more »

Jack McCoy:Ramirez claims he didn't see the assailant, but he's suggesting it was the girl's father.
Dr. Emil Skoda:And you want to know if he's blowing smoke?
Jack McCoy:For starters. Does this crime fit the pattern for incest?
Dr. Emil Skoda:Sure. Why wouldn't it?
Jack McCoy:This was a violent rape, Emil. This wasn't seduction. It was punishment.
Dr. Emil Skoda:It's all about submission. Guys who get into this like to think they're seducing their kids, but they're not. They're dominating them.
Jack McCoy:That still doesn't explain a father hating his child so much he'd literally rape her to death.
Dr. Emil Skoda:Give me another twenty years as a shrink, I'll come up with an explanation.
Jack McCoy:I'm gonna need some strategies to deal with Janaway.

Green Eyed Monsters., 6 December 2013
Author: Robert J. Maxwell ( from Deming, New Mexico, USA

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This is a two-part story involving a model who was raped in Baltimore and managed to die in New York City, thus precipitating a jurisdictional conflict and allowing the producers to cross the outstanding cast of "Law and Order" with the admirable cast of "Homicide." There isn't really a lot of screen time for any of the characters because there are more than the usual number of them, but Richard Belzer as the Baltimore detective gets the wittiest lines.

A doctor stagger into the ER of a New York hospital carrying the dead body of his daughter, who has just died of toxic shock, the result of an infection incurred some weeks ago during vaginal abrasions that are presumed to be the result of a rape. Of course it's not all that easy. It rarely is.

You should take a dekko at the girl's dead body -- or the stills -- or the flashbacks of her telling the camera, "I love you, Daddy." She's feminine perfection. She could be Milla Jovovich's sister. "How old is she, twenty-one?", asks Benjamin Bratt. "Try fourteen," says the orderly as he wheels away the gurney.

Any male viewer can now understand why in parts of Appalachia and Asia girls of fourteen are married already. We might shake our heads with pity but there's license behind that mask. At the same time it's hard to envy beautiful people, particularly alluring young girls, because we're all going to lose it sooner or later and handsome people have more to lose.

I don't think I'll get into the story any further. Not that the crime theme is complicated. It's really very simple. But there are red herrings and such, and the climax comes as something of a surprise.

This episode is different from any of the others I remember from the series. Instead of a scene changing with the expected PLUNK PLUNK, the show is fulsomely orchestrated, complete with theme songs, and it's only a distraction. I enjoy Richard Belzer in interviews but he has the voice and demeanor of a stand-up comedian. The rest of the cast, familiar with their roles, could hardly be better.
