Did You Know?


This is the last SVU with Detective Elliot Stabler (actor Christopher Meloni). Meloni signed on with HBO in December, 2011, to join the cast of True Blood (2008). Murder suspect Eddie Skinner is played by Michael Raymond-James, who played Rene Lenier in the first season of True Blood. See more »


The deals given to Eddie would be unlikely, as a homicide charge would trump a sexual battery charge. Additionally, the gun would have been checked against records and would have turned up as missing from the federal operation, so there was no need to make a deal regarding the ATF agent. See more »

Hurting victim
25 August 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode marked the farewell of Detective Elliott Stabler from the SVU squad. As Stabler Chrisotpher Meloni was always something of a loose cannon to say the least. But in this episode everything becomes unhinged.

It all starts when the victim and chief witness of a rape case the squad invested a lot of time in was gunned down in the street in flimsily disguised mugging with her adolescent daughter Hayley McFarland present. The perpetrator Michael Raymond James was hired by the rapist to kill the witness. But as the investigation continues the rapist Andrew Howard has a most complex relationship with James which involves the Feds as well.

While a lot of complications are dealt with no one is paying any real attention to McFarland. She's an orphan now and hurting real bad. That leads to a lot of tragedy.

During the course of his career on SVU, Christopher Meloni made a lot of bad choices between his job and his family. This last one is one ironically forced on him, but it's a bad one nonetheless.

Charlayne Woodard as Sister Peg of the mission with prostitutes also makes her farewell appearance on SVU, the last of several episodes involving her.

It's a good one, especially for those are fans of Christopher Meloni.
