Like father, like son?
4 August 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode was the conclusion of several where Mariska Hargitay first learns she has a half brother, son of her rapist father and her dealings with him. As she learns the small town New Jersey police where their sex crimes detective Kim Delaney has made a career of trying to nail him for the rape of her sister.

Olivia crosses the line a lot here and if she didn't have the relationships she's built over the years with Dann Florek and Christopher Meloni her career would have been in the toilet. In fact her own belief in her brother is screwing her up mentally. She can't decide if indeed he's her father's son and like father like son or he's just someone who happens to be wrong place wrong time.

Mariska has her issues, but then so does Kim Delaney as the climax is a fugitive standoff with Olivia's brother Michael Weston.

Definitely an episode for Mariska Hargitay fans.
