Trivia

This was Dean Winters' last episode, until he returned in the last episode of Season 13. His character, Det. Brian Cassidy, transferred to Narcotics as a result of his inability to deal with the nature of the crimes that SVU investigates. See more »

One in the head and one in the unit

Although Richard Belzer and Dean Winters are the assigned detectives it's Mariska Hargitay that puts a cap on this case at the end in a manner of speaking.

Belzer and Winters find a judge shot dead in his car with two bullets in him, one in the head and one as was it was called in one of the Dirty Harry films giving the victim a 38 caliber vasectomy. I'm surprised Major Case didn't grab this one, the deceased being a judge. Still the sexual implications are abundantly clear.

And they become clearer as the investigation goes on. The deceased judge was a real bottom feeder. He had influence with the parole board and for sexual favors he'd either keep them in or let them out according to what women wanted. He even lent his name and money to a battered woman's shelter for a supply of victims.

Look for some good guest performances from Angie Everhart who ran the shelter, Kathryn Meisle as one of the trapped victims and Jack Gwaltney as her crazed husband.

Also Dean Winters left the series to be reassigned to narcotics and returned for several guest appearances over a dozen years. Brian Cassidy was a much more hardened individual by then.
