Detectives Benson and Stabler are called to the hospital after a 10-year-old girl is raped. They arrive to find her so traumatized that she cannot even tell them her name. With the help of Detectives Odafin Tutuola and John Munch, they are able to identify the young victim. But they soon realize that her home life is far from normal as Dr. George Huang discovers that her mother suffers from a rare condition that renders her unable to recognize that the young girl is, in fact, her daughter. When the detectives find themselves without a lead, Erik Weber, a man they met on their previous case, decides to get involved. But he may be overstepping his bounds. Written by NBC Publicity

What a collection
20 November 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Henry Ian Cusick makes a second appearance as computer whiz and leader of a vigilante group against pedophiles in this SVU episode. During the course of the story he tries to date Olivia Benson to no avail.

A young girl is raped in the Kip's Bay area of Manhattan after which she's found in a garbage pile not having eaten. It takes awhile and Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay go through a series of false leads before the right perpetrator is found.

I say it that way because this show is an indictment of the sex offender registry. A lot of people are on it for various reasons as we find out, but the published existence of such a list is an invitation to vigilante behavior.

Stephen Tobolowsky looks good for it for a bit. But he gets rather neatly framed and it has tragic results.

I have to single out Daniel Stewart Sherman and Melissa Rain Anderson as the parents of the victim Ruby Jerins. There's a reason she's out in that dumpster, both of these people are something else with some considerable problems. B.D. Wong diagnoses one really strange syndrome for mom.

You'll think about sex offender lists real hard after seeing this story.
