Trivia

The plot - an impostor takes the place of a missing child - has some similarities with the real-life Nicholas Barclay case. See more »

Goofs

Captain Cragen calls the photographer's camera a "35 millimeter digital camera". 35mm is a film format, so it is not possible for a digital camera to be a 35mm camera. See more »

Amazing Episode And Special Performance
27 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've been watching SVU in order on Netflix and finally made it to Stranger in the 10th season. I enjoy reading user reviews at IMDb and saw that this one doesn't have one. It needs one so others will know it's a great episode with a winning performance by Ellen Woglom as Heather Hollander. It's an episode you should see twice so you can read the facial expressions of both Ellen and Natalia Payne as Nikki Hollander.

Two scenes in particular stand as as worthy of seeing again - the interrogation scene with Stabler and Benson, and Benson's scene with Heather in the hospital when the truth is exposed. Woglom shines here, hitting every note perfectly.

In the real world I don't think Heather's teeth would have looked so perfect and her social skills would probably be feral if not devoid of normal emotions, but why nitpick?
