One of the most refreshing and intriguing episodes in the series
24 September 2016 | by (Zeeland, Michigan) – See all my reviews

I love SVU, but let's face it, but all the conflicts are pretty much the same: person is either murdered or raped or even both. This episode, on the other hand, is about a 10 year-old psychopath.

Yep, you heard right. Why does this make it so unique and interesting from all the rest? Well, first of all, the criminal is a ten year-old child. And their's no major murder or rape in this episode like the rest of them center around; it's just simply a lot of violence occurs whenever he's around, and it all adds up to the fact that' he's a psycho and needs locked up. It's almost like The Good Son, except it's done right (and hell, even the two psychos from this episode and that movie have the same name. As was that child psycho from It. Seriously, why are all child psychos named Henry?) Anyways, getting off topic. So anyways, after seeing a bunch of episodes that pretty much followed the same formula, this actually took a different turn and gave me something new and something I haven't seen in ANY Law & Order series.

I highly recommend this episode. If you have cable and record episodes, specifically SVU, definitely record this one. And if you have Netflix and SVU is on there, skip to this one. Or if you decide to buy season 14 on DVD, let this be the first episode to watch. Why? Because holy cow, you will love this episode. I don't want to go as far as to say this is a total masterpiece and does everything right, but out of all the SVU episodes there are, if you're like me and you feel they're too redundant, I say this is definitely the episode that will offer you something new.
