Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola: That's my son in there, Captain. Why didn't you call me?

one of the best villainous performances in SVU's history
20 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Of course, the name that stands out in this episode is that of Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, the rapper/actor from Crash and Hustle & Flow. Luda gives a wonderful performance opposite the SVU cast. His ability as an actor is very high, almost at the same level as his rapping ability (really good). This is one of the few episodes revolving around Detective Fin, as it implicates his son in the crime. A woman has gone missing, along with her child, and they are feared dead. After the husband is clear of suspicion, detectives uncover that Detective Fin's son, ex-wife, and nephew (Bridges) may all be involved somehow. All in all, this is one of SVU's best episodes because the acting is phenomenal, the plot is original and unpredictable, and plus, how can you not like Luda?
