Dani says farewell
23 April 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Connie Nielsen as Detective Danielle Beck who was assigned to Christopher Meloni while Mariska Hargitay was on special assignment decides she can't handle the heartbreak of SVU cases. This one is a heartbreaker as it involves the homicide of a child and the cover-up of it.

But that takes a while to get to. The squad gets called in when a car goes into the Hudson River with two kids chained to the backseat. The boy is a Haitian immigrant orphan and is so screwed up from God knows what he's seen here and in Haiti that he stabs Christopher Meloni with a penknife.

It's the girl played by Elle Fanning who bonds with Nielsen. It takes a while to sort it out, but Fanning was living in a foster home in upstate New York with her sister who disappeared. She dies during a controversial rebirthing session. A therapeutic technique that is been discredited on a Law And Order prime show. The crime happened in Brooklyn and foster parents Margo Martindale and Leo Burmester are arrested.

The climax involving both Nielsen and Fanning makes Detective Beck realize that she can't handle the pressure. What it is is for you to see. But it's heartbreak.
