When Loves Goes Bad
17 November 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In this episode of SVU Benson and Stabler part ways on who they should be investigating in a domestic and custodial dispute. At issue is the custody of young Tiffany Evans between her estranged parents Blair Underwood a hip hop artist and Michael Michele. Both look enough like Sean Combs and Mariah Carey so that SVU had to put a disclaimer at the beginning of the story.

In this seriously escalating battle of the sexes, Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay come down on the side of their respective genders. Who is at fault in the end? Let us say that when love turns sour people really can get wacky.

Two outstanding performances by Underwood and Michele as the couple for which there will be no happy ever after ending.
