Goofs

The entomologist claims that the blowfly larva on the dead baby were freshly laid, so the baby died not more than 3 hours before. Firstly flies lay eggs, not larva. And secondly, it takes anywhere from 12 to 24 hours for blow fly eggs to hatch into larva. See more »

Enter Casey Novak
26 July 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Diane Neal who played a perpetrator in an earlier episode of SVU must have made some good impression on the producers because when Stephanie March left the show Neal was hired to replace her as the sex crimes ADA. But in this show what's demonstrated is that she's going to have to get used to the way they operate. As for Benson and Stabler they're not crazy about Casey Novak's 'hands on' approach.

An aborted baby fetus and the mother are found dead in separate places and we learn the victim was a surrogate mother. It gets complicated and I won't say more but the squad gets a hit off the DNA they lift from a suspect and it opens up a new case involving a serial rapist gone undetected.

I always liked Diane Neal's character. She was rather unrealistically brought back for guest star appearances and given how she was written out in the future it was dumb to bring her back. But right now she's getting her feet wet in sex crimes and Neal makes a fine debut.

You have to see how the serial rapist was beating the investigators for years. Good story.
