What a twist!

Certainly this kind of episode would not appeal to everyone, and yet despite being garish and far-fetched and perhaps not at all in the same vein as a usual Law and Order episode, I found it great.

Me being the kind of person who can empathize with a criminal and genuinely hate children, this sated all my sorts of things. It was great.

In the story of a little boy going missing and discovered murdered, the cops must inevitably go to the usual suspects---the pedophile out of jail. The jerkass anti-pedophile guy who makes himself a hated character, persecuting the pedophile, attempting to frame him, all of it blows up in his face for great laughs and "Damn you!"s However, a twist comes in that it turns out another boy murdered the boy, and the activist guy tried to make him frame the pedophile. He claims it was because he accidentally killed a neighbor's cat, and the other boy saw him and threatened to tell, so he killed him because he was afraid he would be sent back to a camp for troublesome kids, where they tortured and sodomized him.

And then ANOTHER TWIST! I won't spoil ALL of it, but I'll just risk saying: I had a hearty laugh and cheer when a certain character shot a kid dead, right in the chest.

As cold-hearted as that sounds, you can be rest assured that said kid is a psychopath and sociopath, of the kind Dr. Wong diagnoses as being completely unfixable---the kind who kills without passion or emotion.

Find out the rest for itself. It's full of dramatic twists to make a Jerry Springer episode proud, but it was great nonetheless.
