George Segal stars in this episode of SVU about a psychologist who has an old fashioned view on gay people. He's a big believer in reparative therapy, that you can cure gays and of course it's desirable to do so, the better they can fit into society. Especially the crowd you hang around with. Not to mention your professional reputation at stake.

So when a young man who was a poster child turns up dead, the investigation from the SVU squad eventually arrives on his door with two likely suspects, Segal and his son Jonathan Tucker who has kept his sexual orientation a secret from his old man for obvious reasons.

I won't say who did, the homophobic psychologist or his sexually repressed internally homophobic gay son. That's to watch the episode for and see a couple of fine performances from Segal and Tucker.

One performance that really registers is a brief one with only two scenes from James Otis who plays a Reverend Fred Phelps type. Otis has his inbred clan of sickos and they do Phelps like activities. He's a frightening man with his obsession bordering on insanity. If you see this episode for no other reason than to have Otis chill you right to the bone marrow.
