Storyline

A school reports to SVU about a five-year-old girl drawing distressing pictures of her family. The girl tells Benson mommy reads her stepbrother stories with the doors closed "all the time", and that she once saw stepbrother and mommy "playing together" naked in bed. The girl also tells Benson that mommy, a widely known actress, loves her stepbrother more than her. Not long after a heated public exchange between mommy and daddy witnessed by Benson and Stabler, daddy is found dead on the floor in his home, and a bloody baseball bat is found under the stepbrother's bed. While out on bail, stepbrother marries stepmother during a quick trip to Virginia, where marriage at age 17 is legal with no waiting period for a license and no blood tests are required. After the detectives discover the marriage and get bail revoked, they find first that stepmother is three months pregnant, and then that she's in a hospital due to having been raped.

Trophy wife frolics
28 October 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The report of a small kindergarten age child drawing pictures of her mom and step brother frolicking naked sends the SVU squad into the home of married couple Tom Mason and Sherilynn Fenn and his son from a previous marriage Jonathan Bennett. Fenn is a former B movie queen who is the trophy wife who because of this revelation has to put into effect a plan that involves the death of Mason.

Fenn steals this SVU episode. This woman is truly one amoral creature who uses men quite liberally for her own ends. She's even got still another guy on the side, Frank Grillo and he figures in her plans quite prominently. All for a life on easy street with Mason's money without Mason.

Fenn also marries her stepson upon the death of Mason and Bennett is too young and thinking with his male member to realize how he's being played.

Nicely done, a bit of the Pamela Smart situation adapted to New York City.
