When mother and daughter are brutally raped and murdered, it seemed too much for Warrants Officer Detective Dani Beck to handle as she begins to crack under the pressure. However, when their number one suspect, Andrew, turns out to be detective Munch's Uncle, the case twists into something that none of the Special Victims Squad had imagined. Written by Anonymous

When Stabler and Beck jump the subway turnstile at 38:00 they are clearly not filming in NYC. Also, the signage doesn't indicate which 86th St station they are supposed to be in and the train never stops at the station. See more »

The SVU extended family
4 January 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Some years ago that other Hollywood comedy icon Lucille Ball gave a powerful dramatic performance in a made for TV movie about the homeless in The Stone Pillow. Now Jerry Lewis in his 80s takes a turn in an episode of SVU playing Richard Belzer's uncle.

The squad is assigned to a case involving mother and daughter rape victims and during the course of said investigation Jerry Lewis, homeless and on the streets and clearly not in possession of all his faculties is brought in.

Being the aged uncle of one of the squad members, Lewis gets more than a presumption of innocence. They try to get him help, but he keeps insinuating himself in his investigation. In the end it brings about some tragic consequences for Lewis.

You can only hope a merciful God does not put you in the same position that Lewis is in and I daresay a lot of the elderly homeless. In a population that is aging, we as a society are going to find better meds and better housing for folks like these or this will be a growing problem.

A recent couple of stories from New York City make this SVU episode particularly relevant. More I cannot say.
