Goofs

At the start, Katie is holding the phone with 9-1-1 on the phone. You can hear the operator making a comment that they are going to hang up. When a call is made to 9-1-1, then the operator won't hang up when the nature of the call is unknown since it could be a legitimate emergency but the caller is unable to talk on the phone for some reason.

Rain Girl
24 December 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This case of an assault on a mother might have been an easy closing for the SVU squad, but for the facts that the mother has lost her memory and the father and their set of friends are all big high mucky mucks guarding the security of the USA. Naturally the Feds are all over this one and won't let SVU do what it normally does.

The one witness is a young girl with a special type of mental retardation called William's Syndrome. Pauline Gerzon plays the young girl who is a female version of Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man. She remembers everything but what sounds hostile she tries to block. It's not going to be easy for Diane Neal to question her in court.

Aidan Quinn is her father and he's suspected as well. Gerzon and Quinn have some tender scenes together. But is that Quinn trying to influence his daughter to block it out because he did it?

Both Quinn and Gerzon are outstanding in this story.
