Storyline

A woman who appears to have been sexually assaulted is brought to the hospital. The doctor calls SVU and they arrive but problem is that the woman can't speak so she can't tell them who did it. They also learn that the woman is being beaten. So they wonder did the one who assaulted also beat her or was she beaten by someone else. They discover that ones who did that to her are close to her and they have to find a way to handle it. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Trivia

During her interrogation by Fin and Dr. Huang, Janice Raleigh (played by Jill Scott) says she was not considered special like her opera star sister because, "I can't sing." In reality, Jill Scott is a multi-platinum Grammy winning R&B singer. See more »

Goofs

When Olivia is reading Drew Cummings rap sheet she says, "Currently on trial for Distribution of Schedule 4 drugs". When Capt. Kragen asks which ones, she replies "Vicodin, Percocet, OxyContin you name it he sold it." Vicodin is a Schedule 3, Percocet and OxyContin are Schedule 2 drugs. Xanax and Valium would be Schedule 4 drugs. See more »

"Baby Jane" Without The Camp
26 March 2010 | by cchaseSee all my reviews

L&O: SVU is pretty much consistent when it comes to solid writing and getting really good performances from its cast and the revolving roster of guest stars, but this episode really hits it out of the park. The promos made as much as possible out of the appearance of THE BLIND SIDE'S Quinton Aaron, and his character does indeed play an important role in the story. But R&B singer Jill Scott, whom I've never seen act until now, had me wanting to climb into my TV set and THROTTLE HER! I haven't seen PRECIOUS, but I think her performance in this is probably every bit as good as Mo'Nique's will be when I do. Here, Scott plays the bitter, angry and physically abusive sister of a former opera diva (the equally stunning Lisa Arrindell Anderson) stricken with a particularly cruel and aggressive form of MS, who besides being abused, has now also been raped.

If you don't wince with horror at certain scenes in this one, check your pulse for signs of life. Where WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? mined its take on a toxic sibling relationship for shock and camp value, "Disabled" takes the subject seriously, not pulling away from the indignities and the cruelty that disabled, chronically ill and handicapped people must face every day, more often than not at the hands of loved ones.

Not to take anything away from Quinton, who is perfectly fine as Scott's sympathetic son, but it's Scott herself and Anderson who truly deserve the kudos, receiving solid support from the cast regulars. Another outstanding episode.
