Calm Professional Demeanor
9 August 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

SVU has had other bad seed episodes, sociopathic killers without a single trace of empathy or remorse. But never one as young as Jordan Garrett. It's the investigation to find Garrett after first focusing on the wrong suspect P.J. Brown and what happens after that's the basis of this case.

The son of psychologist Kyle MacLachlan goes missing after a party and the focus is on Brown and why wouldn't it be with young Jordan Garrett saying he saw him with the kid. Later on forensic evidence however gives a dead bang identification making Garrett the killer.

Through all of this MacLachlan maintains a calm professional demeanor and as Christopher Meloni observes this man is repressing big time citing his professional experience. MacLachlan does eventually blow up and the consequences are severe.

I must also point out the counterproductive efforts of Bruce Kirkpatrick, head of a vigilante committee who hinders the SVU investigation. This is a guy you love to hate.

Best kudos here go to MacLachlan and young Garrett for some really high caliber performances.
