Captain Donald Cragen: I've been exactly where you are, I know how this job can weigh on you.
Detective Amanda Rollins: What do you mean?
Captain Donald Cragen: I used to drink. And I mean *drink*. Soon as I got off duty, I was at the bar pounding. And then I started having a few on the job. You know, just to get through. I thought nobody noticed. Now, my captain could've canned my ass. Should've. But he got me help instead.

Family Wipeout
8 May 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A bloody crime scene greets the SVU squad where a man and his wife have been shot to death. The walls were graffitied with homophobic messages which would be natural as the wife was a lawyer who was counsel to a state gay rights organization. Their daughter was wounded and is in critical condition. When she comes out of her coma it is possible that Lauren Gray can tell what happened.

Until then the squad has to deal with three possibilities. That it is indeed a hate crime because of the graffiti and the fact that mother had gotten into a lesbian relationship and was to be leaving her husband. Secondly that Gray's boyfriend Jake T. Austin took matters into his own hands or his father Danny Mastrogiorgio who disapproved of her and the relationship did something.

A third possibility is that the father was killed for a gambling debt as an example. Turns out he was a degenerate gambler, a fact verified by housekeeper Elizabeth Rodriguez and her brother Esai Morales. Turns out the father was more than that.

This episode with the gambling angle also sheds a light on Kelli Giddish who has a bad gambling problem, gotten worse by her move from Atlanta to New York.

The solution is a great deal more sicker than any of these red herrings served up by the plot. The burdens some kids have to bear.
