Pent up resentments
23 February 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

While dealing with a health crisis for baby Noah, Sergeant Olivia Benson has a real crisis on her hands. There's a young kid out there who has graduated from rape attempts to murder. He's even written down a manifesto kind of like a Mein Kampf for serial killers.

John Karna plays young Holden March and I don't think the writers at SVU missed the reference to the lovelorn Holden Caulfield that J.D. Salinger created back in my young days. This kid remembers every slight, every put down especially from girls who grew up with him. But he graduates soon enough to murder and Mariska Hargitay has the new chief Peter Gallagher on her back as well as a social worker in the hospital.

It's Kelli Giddish who bonds with Karna, she's just Karna idealized back in the day when he was going through a late puberty. But Karna's passed the point of salvation.

Young John Karna dominates this episode, the climax scene with him and Kelli Giddish is superbly crafted and done.
