A girl, Carly Hunter, is kidnapped on her way home from school. The abductor's van is quickly found, with the girl's blood in it. One suspect, a paroled pedophile, accidentally kills himself running from Det. Stabler. Hoping that evidence from the van will help locate Carly, Stabler talks to the medical examiner, Dr. Warner. She tells Stabler that Carly is probably alive (the blood is from a nosebleed), but that she's also got an undiagnosed case of leukemia and needs to be found as soon as possible. Warner elects to go to the Hunters and tell them about Carly's condition. While there, the kidnapper calls and demands $300,000 ransom and no police. He can view the apartment somehow, and asks who Warner is. She convinces the kidnapper that she's Carly's doctor. She then goes to an interior bathroom and calls SVU.

An inside job
5 February 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In this SVU episode little Gabrielle Brennan is kidnapped on the way to school. Blood from the van that was the snatch vehicle is her's and Dr. Warner says that the little girl is suffering from early stages of undiagnosed leukemia. Which makes it critically important more than usual that the SVU squad get her back quickly.

As it happens Tamara Tunie is breaking the news to her parents when a ransom call comes in. The perpetrator is watching and can see them. What's strange here is that while father Tom Verica works in a bank, he's not rich by any means. Neither is mother Kaitlin Hopkins got any kind of independent wealth. It adds up to Christopher Meloni that someone has some inside information and this is some kind of inside job.

This episode belongs to Tamara Tunie. Normally she's just giving forensic information to the squad for a case. Her by dint of being with the parents she gets more involved in the case. She gets to deliver the ransom demand and her scenes with the kidnapper with a Halloween mask are the best in the show.

Glad they gave Tamara Tunie quite a bit more than normally is the case.
