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

The killer's name is established several times in dialogue as Victor Paul Gitano. However, in one scene, a computer readout gives his first name as Vincent. His mug shot, also appearing in this scene, gives the correct name, Vincent. Also, in that scene, his middle name in the mug shot is given as Paul, whereas the middle name given in the computer readout is Carl. See more »

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.
