When it is revealed that Det. Bernard has a child, the child is referred to twice as a male child before the goof. 1) Defense attorney refers to the child as "your son" when questioning Bernard. 2) Bernard shouts "he's a 10 year old boy" after his revealing performance on the stand. However, in the final moments of the show, Bernard goofs and refers to the child as "her", when answering Lupo's question of how the kid was: "HER mother and I, uh, she ended up marrying her actual boyfriend. We both decided that it would be better, less confusing, if I didn't see HIM. Guess I could look HIM up on the Internet." See more »

Flash Posse
26 June 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

That phrase that Clarence Thomas used to describe his confirmation hearings is the best thing that came to mind for this Law And Order episode. Indeed victim Rene Ifrah was such a victim for real.

Rene Ifrah is this fashion mogul not the best of the city's citizen who probably a lot of people would have motive to kill was found hanging in his apartment. It was made to look like death by erotic asphyxiation. But of course it isn't and Jeremy Sisto and Anthony Anderson go to work.

The killer was crackerdoodle Tina Benko who has a fixation with people who text while drive. That's what Ifrah was doing one fine day and it set her off. Priming this crazy woman for the kill is this internet group called the Flash Posse. They go after all kinds of people whom they don't take a fancy to at a given point. Head of the group is Rob Corddry.

After putting Benko away in the loony bin and her performance is the best in this episode, the plot takes on some wildly improbable turns. Anderson becomes a target of the Posse's wrath.

I'm still not sure how culpable Corddry still is and I doubt the events that took place with him and Benko would ever take place in real life. But we're still in the infancy stage of developing law for the information age.

This episode was really a reach.
