A priest whom Elliot knows asks him to talk to a man he's been counseling who's about to die. Elliot sees him and goes to see the man's daughter whom the man wants to see but she hates him. She gives them money he sent her over the years and discover that they were stolen by a couple of bank robbers who were known as the Fedora Bandits. Elliot thinks he's one of them and thinks that's it. But the priest tells him there's more. He brings Olivia along and that's when they learn that he killed his partner because he was the actual father of his daughter because he was going to kill her. They also learn that the partner killed her mother and that someone else was convicted of the crime so they try to get him released but they need the man to say he didn't do it but he's already in the final stages.

Making his peace
14 October 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Elliott Stabler's parish priest Karl Kenzler asks Christopher Meloni to do him a special favor. He's taken the confession of a dying man at a hospice and he wants Meloni in his official capacity to visit him. You don't ask a cop unless there's something criminal involved.

The dying man is Brian Dennehy and he's a tough old bird, but he knows he's got maybe days to live. He's got a lot to get off his chest, but he won't do it unless he gets a visit from his estranged daughter. She doesn't want to reconcile with Dennehy, but fortunately he's bonded with Mariska Hargitay and she babysits while he spoon feeds clues about his past.

Before the episode is over a major federal bank robbery case is solved and an innocent man is freed from prison. Dennehy's final scenes with Hargitay are priceless.

Dennehy feeds it out bit by bit as if to prolong his own life. Maybe it did in some odd way. When he had nothing more to give he died. Might be a lesson in there for all of us.
