Some family life
5 September 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A mother tries to awaken her little daughter and finds she's in a coma. Before this episode is over three people are seriously injured and another is on his way to jail for beating up on one of those. This little girl has some family life.

The mother is Jennifer Dundas and she and her family provide an extensive list of suspects. She's the privileged daughter of the widow of a US Ambassador played by Jean DeBoer and this woman is to the manor born. Dundas however was a wild child and while in rehab met and married Yancey Arias who is a Cuban refugee, a short order cook and he's the little girl's father. Arias has quite the temper.

Her current husband Paul Michael Valley is closer to her social standing and he has a son Adam Zolotin from a previous marriage. Dundas also has a son with Valley who is a little too young to make the suspect list. He does have a sullen countenance when we first meet him. This episode is one of the better packed SVU shows with red herrings.

J.K. Simmons the eminent Dr. Emil Skoda provides us the key and it is Richard Belzer who opens up the perpetrator with it. I agree with the previous reviewer, this one is Belzer's episode.
