This SVU episode presents a particular crisis for Christopher Meloni. He empathizes with the parent of the victim so much that he lets slip some information that makes it end badly for his suspect.

A young girl is found strangled outside a club in Soho and when she's identified the father is called in. The father is Joe Morton who's a working stiff trying to raise his daughter alone. As the father of three girls Detective Stabler knows just what that's all about.

Unfortunately Paul Leyden who is the club owner and who fancies himself a player meets Morton's wrath when the authorities slip up.

Stephanie March know has to charge Morton with Leyden's murder. Poor Stabler, as he says he's not sure he wouldn't have done the same thing.

Christopher Meloni owns this episode and a touching performance by Joe Morton as the grieving father.
