Goofs

When asking Clive Lynwood about his felony record, Stabler states that Lynwood blew a "2.2" into the breathalyzer. Given that a lethal BAC is typically around 0.45, Stabler most likely meant Lynwood's breathalyzer result was 0.22. See more »

Attaching the blame
12 December 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This particular SVU episode jumped all over the lot, but the primary focus is attaching the blame for a particular homicide. Not that the deceased who is a recently convicted pediatrician who was a child molester will be missed, but Stephanie March who has now returned to the DA's office seems to have a new killer instinct and is not seeking justice.

John Gallagher, Jr. is the perpetrator a truly sad case of a developmentally disabled young man who was abused as a kid. He sees the doctor on television and confronts him and kills him. But March is determined to try him as a responsible adult.

Kudos in this episode go to B.D. Wong who discovers what's wrong with him and in the last three minutes of the story, the responsible party is discovered and nicely ambushed on the witness stand.

The object is justice and not how many notches on a prosecutor's belt.
