Cover Up
22 November 2012 | by anitalansingSee all my reviews

The episode, "Lessons Learned" is one of the most superb TV episodes of any show I have seen in years.

The episode was poignant, blunt, truthful, realistic, and well written. In real life, so many prestigious universities and schools cover up the abuse of their students to avoid tarnishing their reputations and losing tuition dollars or Federal funding. Lives are destroyed. Emotional pain occurs. I have seen first hand how closely guarded secrets can destroy. A child tells his parents how an uncle or next door neighbor abused him and the child is dismissed. The abuser continues on harming more children and the emotional pain ensues for the rest of his life. What can society say to him, except that society accepts child abuse if it's nicely packaged and presented to us with a pretty bow.

Excellent episode. Law & Order SVU continues to have story lines that blows its audience away!! Superb!!
