Now this was one awesome episode
21 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

It's amazing how episodes in the "Law and Order" series manage to start with one crime and then follow different threads to end up with lots of details and often a confusing issue. I really enjoy watching it. In this case, a man fell down off a building, hit a car and died. Due to injuries found in his genital region, the "SVU" squad was called in to investigate who had apparently pushed him off the building and why.

From there, discovery of fresh graffiti on the building leads them to a rebellious teenager, Logan, who denies all responsibility for either crime, even when his DNA is found at the crime scene. To make things harder, his twin sister Lindsay confirms he was at their home all night.

Things start to get even more complicated. I won't say too much, just ask that you watch the episode! It was very clever. I suspected one of the "twists" regarding Lindsay and Logan as I was familiar with the true story it was based on. Reiley McClendon's acting was stunningly, believably good.

And the ending...what an ending. I loved it. It was so clever. And really makes you think. The episode was a little sad. But so well done, and I can't recommend it highly enough.
