Sick puppies and a bad attitude
10 June 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Michael Weston returns as Mariska Harigtay's half brother in his fourth and to date final appearance. In the five year gap he's gotten married to a black women and inherited a stepson and had his own kid. Now he's gotten himself into a jackpot where Social Services has taken his kids away from him. Hargitay reaches out to Andre Braugher the civil rights attorney with whom she has developed a relationship with over a few episodes.

There's also a second story line because Olivia Benson is also involved in the hunt for who abandoned a newborn at a church. The only clue the squad has to go on is that the newborn looked like he was well cared for, almost professionally so. Accent on the word 'professional'. When it's discovered the squad is looking for a man and a woman the professional part is the key to solving the case. These perpetrators are a pair of sick puppies.

As for poor Weston, this man was just born under a cloud and has the rottenest luck. Racial profiling plays a big part here. I knew someone who had a short and sad life who also as a kid was taken away from his parents and raised in a New York State group home. I could identify very much with what Weston and his wife were going through.

Weston also and understandably has a cynical attitude and won't let the system work for him. But one of the weaknesses of this episode is that you would have to see what was going on in those previous SVU episodes to know exactly why his attitude is what it is.

Still not a bad story. Maybe we'll see more of Weston yet.

Still it's a well
