Truly Weird
3 November 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The SVU squad has investigated many a strange case in its run on television, but this episode has to rank among the truly weird that they have done.

Kelli Giddish witnesses a young girl abducted in a cab and the squad goes on the case. First one of her legs turns up in the Gowanus Canal with an identifying tattoo and later the rest of her. In between that the squad gets into the truly bizarre world of body modification.

I can't think of any one of us who wouldn't if they could modify a piece of our anatomy if they could. But cutting off a perfectly good limb isn't something we run across every day.

The investigation leads to a pair of brothers, a dentist and a psychiatrist who have some real family issues regarding limb amputation. That's all I'm about to say about this weird episode.

One hopes the SVU writers aren't running dry.
