Did You Know?


To get Josie to cooperate, Cragen suggests Benson and Stabler offer her something to eat, saying "interventions aren't always pretty". Though never mentioned on-screen, it's possible that, as a recovering alcoholic, Cragen is speaking from experience. See more »


In the beginning, we see through the scope of a man with a rifle targeting a head shot on a woman. It is then revealed that he is playing paint ball. Paint ball players are taught to never target head shots with paintball guns since they still have quite a bit of force behind them and could seriously injure or blind someone if shot in the head.

Street Urchins get organized
15 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

This particular episode has the SVU squad dealing with a Dickensian like family of street urchins who are under the sway of a charismatic, but psychotic Fagin played by Thom Bishops. Fagin only organized his gang to pick pockets and cut purses. Bishops deals in murder and the murder of a débutante brings the SVU squad in.

Bishops has a female Nancy played by Mae Whitman as a second in command, but he's as psychotic with her as he is with the world in general. Come to think of it this Fagin is actually more like Bill Sikes.

Eventually Bishops is arrested and Diane Neal is prosecuting him with Whitman as the key witness. But that's far from the end of this story. Whitman is not all she seems and I'll leave it at that.

Oliver Twist never ran with a crew like this.
