Goofs

Warner tells Benson that the cause of Ryan's death is homicide, and she reacts like this definitely means Stabler will be charged with murder. Actually, homicide as a medical term is distinct from homicide as a legal term - it simply means death by person and does not indicate that a crime of any kind has been committed (if a cop shoots a suspect in an armed standoff, for instance, that would be homicide in a medical sense but unlikely in a legal sense). Also Warner has no way of knowing how Ryan's spleen was ruptured accept by blunt force. This could have happened by accident or even before Ryan was caught by Elliot. "Homicide" rules out an accident. See more »

Highs in your parent's medicine cabinet
24 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode of SVU concerns kids and their latest craze, drug cocktail parties. Why by illegal drugs like heroin or cocaine when you can get just as good a buzz from the stuff in your parent's medicine cabinet. The latest thing now is to just go to the medicine cabinet steal what's there as your ticket to a drug cocktail party where the pills are put in a bowl like choice candy.

Only this time the wife of noted criminal lawyer Cary Elwes is brutally murdered and he's badly injured. The squad zeroes in on daughter Emily Van Camp and her boyfriend Justin Klosky.

But things really go bad when Klosky dies while being apprehended by Christopher Meloni which puts Internal Affairs on the case. And of course Detective Stabler's mortal enemy from that squad Robert John Burke is handling that investigation. He won't rest until Stabler is off the force, he's got such an obsession about him. And of course he has to justify his existence as well.

I'd rate this episode a bit higher but I thought it went way off track when the SVU squad wasted its time on a Mafia Capo who was mad at Elwes who did not get his father off.

Still it's a good warning against using prescription drugs for recreational use.
