A school reports to SVU about a 5 year old girl drawing distressing pictures of her family. The girl tells Benson mommy reads her stepbrother stories with the doors closed "all the time", and that she once saw stepbrother and mommy "playing together" naked in bed. The girl also tells Benson that mommy, a widely known actress, loves her stepbrother more than her. Not long after a heated public exchange between mommy & daddy witnessed by Benson & Stabler, daddy is found dead on the floor in his home, and a bloody baseball bat is found under the stepbrother's bed. While out on bail, stepbrother marries stepmother during a quick trip to Virginia, where marriage at age 17 is legal with no waiting period for a license and no blood tests are required. After the detectives discover the marriage and get bail revoked, they find first that stepmother is three months pregnant, and then that she's in a hospital due to having been raped. Written by
