Storyline

Solid investigative work leads the detectives to a violent repeat sex offender, Victor Paul Gitano, who was recently released back onto the streets. Gitano, a cold blooded murderer and pedophile, is in possession of a cache of hunting knives, and has kidnapped two children and has nothing to lose. The manhunt for Gitano brings Detectives Benson and Stabler to a bus terminal where a violent and emotional showdown with Gitano takes a dangerous turn. Written by Alex

Goofs

While the cops are watching the videotaped therapy session featuring killer Victor Paul Gitano (Lou Diamond Phillips), the image of his face zooms from a mid-shot to a close-up while he is talking. A genuine videotape of a therapy session would show the subject from the same angle and apparent distance from the camera throughout. A mid-session zoom would require a third person present to work the camera, and a therapist would not want another person in the room because that would compromise doctor-patient confidentiality.

Quotes

George Huang: [Elliot went to see Huang after feeling guilty because he went to save Olivia instead of going after Gitano. Gitano ended up killing a boy that Elliot could have saved] In situations like this there is no good choice. Every choice becomes a sacrifice.
Elliot Stabler: Not true.
George Huang: You had to choose between saving the little boy or saving Olivia
Elliot Stabler: Yeah, but she didn't need me.
George Huang: You didn't know that.
Elliot Stabler: [Long pause. Elliot was deep in thought] I wish I didn't...

Terrifying!
19 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

Two parents and their two older children are found murdered, while the two younger children in the family seem to have been kidnapped. This awful beginning leads to a hunt for the children, although with such a tragic start, even the best-case scenario from now on won't exactly be a happy ending. The two children have been taken by a sociopathic serial-killing murderous paedophilic psychopath, or something. One very scary guy, and a terrifying episode as they try to follow him around to get the children. He seems pretty clever...and he also has a fascination with hunting knives. The episode shows some of the conflicts that detectives have to deal with on such a difficult case, and in situations of harm or possible harm to themselves and their team. There was also a whole lot on the Stabler-Benson plot line and how they were feeling about themselves and working together, which I found to be more aggravating than interesting, although the two actors are great.
