Did You Know?


When Stabler and Benson arrest Emma's grandparents. Stabler quotes the eighth commandment as "Thou shall not bear false witness". The Eighth Commandment is "Thou Shall not steal" (Exodus 20:15). The Ninth Commandment is "Thou Shall not bear false witness" (Exodus 20:16). However, different religious affiliations may have slightly different Commandments. For example, Stabler is Catholic and the eighth Commandment for Catholics is "bearing false witness." See more »

No winners in this one
12 February 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

If there was ever a televised lesson on the need of the Harvey Milk School for LGBT kids it's this episode of SVU. At the end there are no winners coming out of this story. I am glad to say the biggest loser might just be Stephen Bogardus who is an attorney for some Christian Right organization who's flirting with disbarment.

This could have been a better episode, but for the life of me I'm still not getting why a lesbian couple would send their daughter to a Catholic school. Raquel Castro goes and she's bullied by one kid in particular played by Daniel Manche. She retaliates by stabbing him in the back causing severe spinal injury.

Castro gets let off easy when evidence of the bullying surfaces. That precipitates a custody battle. During the episode the girl's birth mother dies and the surviving partner has Castro. Encouraged by Bogardus the grandparents of the deceased partner file for custody. Allegations of child abuse ensue.

In the end no one wins here. Biggest loser is young Manche who is now a paraplegic. As the Rodgers&Hammerstein song goes, he was carefully taught that homosexuality is one big old sin and when you sin so openly, you've got carte blanche to do whatever. That kid is really paying for the ignorance of his parents and I doubt he'll ever get it.
