More L&O Religious Agenda Stuff, But Suspenseful

7/10
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States
19 December 2006

A woman who has an Arab boyfriend who just dumped her is missing. Her family is here from Pittsburgh and her dad's a policeman. His connections get him the high priority that puts Goren and Eames on the case.

The more Goren investigates the more he's convinced - without saying it - this could be something involving terrorism, especially when the police find traces of explosives and other evidence of homemade bombs. It turns out that, yes, there is going to be a suicide bombing and that there probably are two people involved, one being an American who has converted to being a Muslim after a long "search for God." They capture him but the other one is still out there somewhere with a vest and 25 pounds of explosives. They have to find him.

Along the way, this program gets its digs in once again against religion, not centering on these terrorists begin Islamic as much just people who do bad things in the name of God. Their unsaid message is obvious. It's still an interesting and fairly intense episode. Oddly, the only person looking "unhinged" is Goren (Vincent D'Onofrio), not the terrorists!
