The DNA confirms it
4 June 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The villain in this episode of SVU is an unseen one. This episode also entertains the proposition that a mother knows her own kid no matter what.

Someone has been trying to snatch young Abigail Breslin for a few weeks now, it's obvious whoever this is fixated on this child. In a nicely pulled off sting operation the squad nails the two perpetrators. They turn out to be private detectives.

But who has hired them? Turns out to be Lea Thompson who spotted her and knew it was a daughter. And guess what, the DNA confirms it.

In vitro fertilization is the answer some fertility clinic implanted Thompson's egg with husband Beau Gravitte's sperm doing its thing inside his wife Camilla Scott's womb.

What a lovely custodial dilemma. And what a tough case for Diane Neal to win in court. Some interesting issues about fertility clinics and their practices are raised here. We never even see who the people are who caused this tragic mess.

A good, but sad story all around.
