Trivia

Adam Kaufman plays Michael Goren in this episode. The name Goren would later become synonymous with the Law & Order franchise as Vincent D'Onofrio would later be cast to play the role of Detective Robert Goren on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, which debuted nearly a year after this episode aired.

Goofs

In the one of the last shots, Monique Jeffries says to Odafin Tutuola "Well, try my side of the moment", and then she turns and walks away. In the next shot you can see Tutuola as if he's watching her walk away, but on the edges of the screen you can see Jeffries' hair and part of her hand holding Tutuola's necklace. There's also someone else (possibly Olivia Benson) suddenly standing to his left. However, on the dvd version no such error occurs. See more »

Ralph Noble: Don't you question my patriotism, mister.
Det. John Munch: That's Mister Detective to you. Take a little bit of tarnish off that Medal of Honor.

Too big to take down?
16 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

One of the big criticisms I have of SVU is that a lot of the episodes went far afield from sex crimes. This is one of them, but I liked it as the events flowed both logically and frighteningly.

Christopher Meloni while driving on the Cross Bay Boulevard taking his daughter home finds a burning body in the marshes, bullet through the head and flames originating from the crotch. It has sex crime written all over it.

Well it is the right genre of crime, but the story is far more complex than that. The victim worked in some top security defense contracting firm making missile guidance systems. As a sideline he liked to molest boys until they became big enough to resist. He adopted one of them, played here by Adam Kaufman.

Kaufman confesses, a bit too readily for some. Benson and Stabler keep digging and for once Richard Belzer's conspiratorial turn of mind has some positive effects.

If you watch this episode you will love Gerry Bamman giving a performance of someone you could develop an addiction to hating. He's the deceased's employer, smug, self satisfied, and arrogant enough to think no one can touch him.

Stephanie March makes her first SVU appearance as ADA Alexandra Cabot and Ice T shows up at the very end to announce his transfer to the SVU squad. All in all a benchmark episode.
