Storyline

When two sisters are killed in a fire, Detectives Olivia Benson and Eliot Stabler are confused about why they are called to investigate. They soon discover that Stabler's old partner, ADA Jo Marlowe, has been put on the case -- despite the absence of a sex crime -- because the two victims were so young, and that she has enlisted the duo to help. However, as the investigation continues, Benson and Stabler find that the case might be more suited to their department than anyone originally assumed, and Stabler's interrogation tactics threaten to get the detectives into trouble.

Stabler and Stone have history
2 June 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Sharon Stone who got everyone's motors running in Casino guest stars as a new Assistant District Attorney for Sex Crimes. She's got a good track record in the field, back in the day she was Christopher Meloni's first partner, he broke into SVU with her.

Though juries will take the testimony of cops with a grain of salt and in fact are always instructed never to give their testimony more weight than anyone else's at trial, they will accept the word of a fire marshal without question. That's what happens here as the SVU squad gets a case involving what is called an arson fire by the Fire Department and its expert Brad Dourif. He says it was an arson and furthermore the father of the girls set it.

So Meloni and Mariska Hargitay even though they have a suspect, drop him and arrest Kevin Anderson the father. It's a gut wrenching episode because even if the result was unintended, the fact of putting his single digit age daughters in harm's way revolts the audience and we always take the word of fire marshals.

This is a good episode with an unusual twist to it.
