Special kinds of abuse
5 November 2014 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

A young adolescent who had a genius level IQ is found in the Hudson River and originally she was thought of as a casualty of teenage sex trafficking. But that does not turn out to be the case. She is a student at a school for genius kids like her.

We meet a father played by Misha Kuznetsov who's one man you just love to hate. His other daughter rats him out to SVU, he abuses his kids in a unique way. He's a failed aerospace engineer from the Ukraine who now has one serious gambling habit. He supports it with the various prize monies brought in from academic competition his daughter is in.

But the perpetrator turns out to be another young girl played Sarah Hyland and she's really something in the role. The reason for her shoving her roommate and competitor in the Hudson is a frightening one and that I will not reveal. But it turns out she's suffering with her own kind of abuse.

A nice episode both Hyland and Kuznetsov are unforgettable.
