A must see for two great performances; one by Mr. D'Onofrio, the other by Mr. Scheider.
Law and Order: Criminal Intent: "End Game" is as good as television cop drama gets. Roy Scheider, Vincent D'Onofrio and Rita Moreno infuse their characters with compelling, believable and disturbing nuance in this intelligent and efficient telling of the unveiling of personal and painful tragedy as evil is revealed one move at a time. I was unaware that Miss Moreno was playing Detective Goren's mother until I subsequently checked the cast member list on IMDb -- she is totally convincing. Mr. Scheider distinguishes himself again in what turns out to be one of his last and, arguably, one of his best performances. Mr. D'Onofrio deserves major kudos for this particular episode; so does the directing and writing team.
