Stabler goes undercover
1 May 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Jeremy Irons plays a psychiatrist who treats sex addicts in group therapy who is also the father of a daughter who was attacked and raped and barely survived the ordeal. As a matter of confidentiality he won't give out the names of his patients. So the SVU squad takes matters into their own hands with Christopher Meloni going undercover as a patient.

There are a lot of good suspects here, not all of them patients by any means. It is clear that someone is using this group as some kind of hunting ground. Not only here, but in other areas where Irons has treated people.

There are a few good red herrings in the cast, the suspect is not immediately apparent.

Irons who won an Oscar for Reversal Of Fortune does a fine job as a man torn between concerns for his daughter and professional obligations. He's worth seeing this episode for.
