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.

Outstanding episode
10 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni did a remarkable job. This episode was my favorite episode of the season. I was impressed how Benson and Stabler carried the hostage situation. Though I was a bit upset on how Dick Wolf ended the episode with Olivia asking Cragen for a new partner. I understand that Olivia and Elliot need a brake from each other…..they have been partners since the show began seven seasons ago. Elliot and Olivia both are putting each other ahead of the job….to some extend that is a good thing, but at this point they are putting the other too much ahead of the job, and that is when judgments are going to be question.
