Did You Know?


This storyline is a not-so-subtle reference to the sexual abuse scandal at the Horace Mann School in Riverdale. In 2012, multiple allegations were revealed by former students from as long ago as the early 1970s, directed at long-time teachers at HMS. See more »

Detective Olivia Benson: Gentlemen, if I may? I've been doing this for a long time, and I understand the shame and the stigma. But keeping the abuse secret... doesn't make it go away.

Fantastic episode
24 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Charles Grodin was FANTASTIC! He was so buttoned-up and cold it was scary. Elliot Gould was extra fine in this as well. So good to see some of my favorite actors in this great series? This episode dealt with child abuse and I have friends, grown men, who fight with this issue today. I really thought the show portrayed these adult survivors with dignity. I am beginning to "get" the new abrupt DA his humanity showed in this episode despite his matter-of-fact attitude. Olivia's passion is so contagious This season has been especially good. I am watching each with love and dread as the series comes to an end. The big question is who does Olivia end up with? I do so believe she has so much love to give. Ahhh see what a great series? It's like the characters are REAL people. A testament to the writing and the actors. Bravo and brava.
