Law & Order: Criminal Intent-Homo Homini Lupis

Author: Scarecrow-88 from United States
13 November 2010

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Here's one of those types of stories often popping up on Law & Order's other hit show, SVU, and it concerns a Serbian war criminal, now a "collector" who is called on by bookies to kidnap the families of clients who fail to pay up. Lucas Colter(James Colby)owed someone money for getting behind on payments(he was embezzling his companies funds), with his wife and daughters kidnapped by Simon Matic(Ritchie Coaster). Simon rapes Lucas' daughter while holding her captive and this motivates Eames and Goren to catch him before he does it to someone else's teenage girl. A tattoo and Stockholmes Syndrome play into how Simon will be either caught or not, as the rape victim, Maggie(Stephi Lineburg), holds inside her rage, with Goren hoping to pull that out of her so he can give a positive identification of Simon. Rape is never a comfortable topic explored, but its potent subject matter all the same. We see how a father's ill decisions in regards to money can forever scar his family, and the atrocities of the Serbian army against innocent women of their country are brought to the forefront in particularly haunting episode.
