great episode!!!!
7 November 2007 | by mistyw_ktownSee all my reviews

This was one of the finest hours of television I have ever seen.

I was not really a fan of the Law and Order shows, hadn't really seen any of them, but the week before I had seen an episode with Jane Seymour in it, and stuck around to watch this one, and I am so glad I did!

It is full of twists and turns! It starts out with a shooting of some small school children on a playground, and before you know it...all these things are happening. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. This episode is what made me a SVU fan.

Marcia Gay Harden was fantastic as Star. I loved her in this show!
