Cynthia Nixon turns in a powerful performance as a woman with multiple personalities who may have abused and fatally harmed her daughter. As Detectives Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler dig more deeply into the case - with initial resistance from Dr. Henry Carlisle -- Donovan continues to present even more personalities along with a harrowing twist to the case. For the detectives, it's a race against time to find the infant, while adjusting to sweeping changes in the SVU - a result from poor decisions made by the detectives that have spilled over to the squad.

Cordite hasn't been used as a firearm propellant since the 1960's, and it was only used in European manufactured ammunition. Modern ammunition, including shotgun shells use double-based smokeless gunpowder, which is made of nitrocellulose and nitroglycerin. Cordite used nitrocellulose and nitroglycerin although in different amounts and with different additives so Cordite and modern gunpowder do smell somewhat similar though anyone with experience should be able to distinguish the two smells.

Det. Elliot Stabler: [to a pregnant Kathy who is carrying a laundry basket] Honey, you shouldn't be lifting heavy things. Just leave it there. I'll do it.
Kathleen Stabler: She's not supposed to be pregnant. You're too old. I'm in college. People will think it's mine.

ALTERNATE Episode of a woman with split personalities
30 July 2016 | by kearney-bSee all my reviews

Alternate TV-14 | 1h | Crime, Drama, Mystery | Episode aired 25 September 2007 This was a horrible portrayal of mental illness. The characters used slang, mocking humour about depression, mental illness, multiple personality, "Nut House, Coco Nest, the Psychiatrist looked like inept" As if they are not even people. You wouldn't be nicknaming mocking a man who had dementia and when confused shot someone I doubt the detectives would be using lines like "Think he knows the day, maybe it's Christmas?" I would like to know if you talked to a Dr. before this episode. I love Law and Order saw every episode of 20 years. This SUV sad reflection on a story if real Police act like this.
