Storyline

After Eva Banks makes a shocking discovery about her son, Cory's behavior at school, she takes him to the doctor, only to find out that he has been the victim of sexual abuse. Detectives Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler come onto the scene and question the victim and his family. From the boy's frightened reaction when his stepfather, Thomas Banks, silences the investigation, it is clear to everyone in the room who the real perpetrator is. Detective Benson and Stabler are about to arrest the suspect when Thomas agrees to give up the leader of the largest pro child-adult relationship civil rights group in exchange for amnesty.

22 October 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Can anyone tell me the name of the actor who played the boy's father?

He isn't listed and I have seen him in other shows but can't remember his name! I'm referring to his natural father, not the step-father.

I am sure he had a show of his own, but my memory seems to left me behind on this one.

Must be that in order to remember, I have to watch a show for years??

Stabler goes a bit nuts, but you find yourself wishing he went farther.

It was a first time we have seen the Dr. get so mad, plus the mention of being gay is so seldom heard, at least from him.

It was a great show, Rose Perez shines.

She really hones in on the mother aspect of this role.

I thought the rest of the crew could have been used more.
