Another very good episode from the landmark 20th season
4 May 2010 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

There are three incredibly good performances in an episode that delves headfirst into infidelity, prejudice against aging women, mental and physical abuse, and the recent "party crasher" story. Both cast member S. Epatha Merkerson and guest star Kathy Baker ("Picket Fences") show why they are Emmy winners and why they deserve another one of those revered statuettes. Not only do they deliver in this outstanding installment, so does the young actor that plays the murdered victim's brother Dustin. The young man is riveting in a part that requires him to display a variety of emotions.

Broadway and television veteran Tony Roberts is good, too, as Baker's husband, a politician for which much of the suspicion falls.

Again, L & O is really demonstrating this season why it has been a mainstay on NBC for two decades.
