Fourteen years ago, Stabler had a chance to arrest a man for kidnapping, rape and murder, but the man managed to get off. With the recent discovery of a murdered woman, Stabler has another chance at cracking the case. They can only hold the man for 24 hours, but are able to glean enough information during that time period to at least have a place to start. Cragen and Benson both worry that Stabler will let his hatred for the suspected child molester interfere with his ability to do his job. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


A detail from this episode contradicts dialogue from the episode "Doubt" earlier in the season. In that episode, Detective Stabler was said to have twelve years of police service, but in this episode, he collared Rickett fourteen years ago, with no indication that he was rookie then. See more »


Gordon Rickett: What do you know about controlling anything?
Detective Elliot Stabler: I don't murder people.
Gordon Rickett: Give it time. You say you see something in me? Well, I see something in you, too. You think you control. You can't. You're controlled. By your boss, by your job, by your wife, your kids. What would you be if all those controls went away?
Detective Elliot Stabler: I'd be you.

The ones that get away
31 May 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

For a cop especially an SVU cop the ones that get away are the ones that stick in your craw. For Christopher Meloni, Matthew Modine represents the one that eats at him. 12 years earlier he was arrested for a child murder and rape, but SVU couldn't make the case. Now he has another chance at him.

The entire squad works on this, but they follow Meloni's lead. By this time Modine is someone used to police interrogation and he doesn't crack easy. Most of this story is in the SVU interrogation room where the dialog is intense and the ugly side of Christopher Meloni is revealed. As for Modine he has no other side.

In the end he's brought to justice and in a far better way than a confession some smart lawyer might get tossed.

One of Christopher Meloni's best moments with the series.
