When Stabler is in therapy, Dr. Hendrix asks Stabler if he had ever thought about "eating his gun". He tells her, "Suicide is a sin." Her reply is, "So is divorce.". However, according to the Catholic church, it is not divorce that is the sin, but marrying another spouse after divorce (without having the church annul the previous marriage). If a Catholic remarries the divorced spouse in a civil ceremony, however, that is not a sin, since the civil divorce was not recognized by the church to begin with. See more »

great episode
5 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

great episode really shows how disturbed Stabler is and how messed up these detectives are. They deal with the absolute depths of human horror. When Stabler starts crying my heart really goes out to him. Sometimes I think they make Olivia's character to self righteous always acting like she knows better. But it's only on rare occasions usually its the two partners against the captain or everybody else. SVU is always great because in most TV shows the good guys are always the good guys but in SVU everyone has shades of gray. Which is more akin to real life. So in summary a great episode because it really hits home the fact that parents needs to be so careful how far they push.
