They've got their own world, 9 December 2014
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Until I started working and lobbying for transgender rights I was not aware of this issue. So when I saw this particular episode of SVU it sadly resonated with me.

The murder of a deaf mute homeless woman sets off an investigation which leads them to a pair of identical twins, one of whom witnessed the murder. Both are graffiti artists which is what put them on a roof which was the scene of the crime.

But there's far more to it than that especially after former police officer and now therapist Mary Stuart Masterson clues the squad in. Reilly McClendon plays the dual role of Logan and Lindsay Masters who even for identical twins seem very attached. They've got their own world and especially after their therapist from birth Peter Firth has been conducting some ghoulish experiments on them.

Young McClendon gives a dual performance that will stay with you forever after being seen. He's unforgettable in the parts.

As for Firth even one who makes a clinical study of sexual behavior is not immune from some monstrous impulses. This man truly got his jollies observing these two. Because when they were infants Firth changed one of the twins from a boy to a girl. He's even going to write a book about them.

This was something not uncommon in the days before transgender people developed a voice and consciousness and spun out of the general gay rights movement to demand their own rights and identity. The story depicted by McClendon has a few thousand imitations around the country and more around the world.

One of the best SVU stories ever done in the history of that program.
