I have been a fan of SVU for a long time now. I haven't necessarily seen all the episodes due to other conflicts but I'm working on it. I chose to watch this one last night because the summary on IMDb seemed pretty intense. Boy, was it right.

A potential kidnapping turns into a private investigation which leads to a con man doctor which then leads to a real snatching of a kid which then leads to a custody fight. I think that sums it up pretty nicely.

But, the real stars of the show are the guest stars. We all know about the abilities of Meloni, Hargitay, Florek, etc. But, the people who really stole the spotlight were Lea Thompson, who plays Michelle Osborne and Abigail Breslin, who plays little Patty Branson. Both are very convincing, especially Breslin and the freaked-out-of-her-mind character she is portraying. Thompson is also very hard-nosed as the 'mother' of Breslin's character. This is evident during a jail house meeting scene in about the middle of the episode.

Watch. This. Episode.
