Little punk gets under Stabler's skin
16 August 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Christopher Meloni gets himself a real personal mission when the SVU squad catches a case of a 14 year old boy found stark naked in the bed of some women's apartment he broke into. The kid is drunk out of his mind, in fact in half this episode young Sterling Beaumon is in a state of inebriation.

But in a moment they're alone Beaumon accuses Stabler of molesting him and of course that brings down the usual investigations and consequences. Honestly I think Stabler should have listened to his captain and just stayed out of it all.

But his problems are nothing compared to Beaumon's and his mother Rita Wilson who is one of the biggest stages of denial I've ever seen portrayed on the big screen and small. It all ends tragically for Beaumon and some victims for this kid is already a serial rapist.

One of Christopher Meloni's best from SVU.
