When an Argentine immigrant is found slashed and beaten in the family's bathroom, Detectives Goren and Bishop believe the wounds were self-inflicted -- but her husband's history of violence makes the police think he could have been responsible for other racially motivated murders that were discovered by his wife. But since they cannot implicate the suspect in his wife's death, Goren explores the family's tragic history on both sides and struggles to find a link to the kneecap-murders of a string of Jewish men.

Sephardic blooper
7 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked the episode generally, especially the direct confrontation of antisemitism in a family and neighborhood and the pathos of the mother and daughter surrounded by hate they don't share.

Part of the plot revolves around unknown Jewish ancestry revealed by a few words of Ladino Spanish and by a document showing a Jewish surname changed a generation earlier. Only problem: the Jewish name is Ashkenazic not Sephardic. A few Sephardic Jews have Northern European names due to an ancestor's marriage, but the choice here is absurd. Perhaps the writers were clueless, or maybe it was easier to use a name that the antisemitic U.S. characters would recognize instantly as "Jewish" (as people in Spanish-speaking countries would recognize a Sephardic surname).
