    Great show Great episode. I love this episode because it was so unexpected. The concept of the perps being on the down low wasn't even thought of in the beginning of the episode. It was Fin who figured it all out. His street smarts cracked what might have never been cracked with hiim. In the end of the episode it was very sad to see the wife in such pain of knowing she may never get to be there for her kids but loved her husband enough to forgive him and stick with him as long as he told the truth. Excellent episodemoreless

    The episode had a fantastic storyline and layers to it. It touched on a subculture that is was considered a phenomenon but is pretty common in its reach.

    The episodes introduces a lot of folks to the sub culture within the African American populace known as being on the Down Low. Being on the Down low suggest that normal heterosexual males, who identify themselves as being straight, have sex with each other. They usually have wives and kids, and yet do the deed in secluded locations with the premise that it's not talked about and not tipped to in anyway by speaking of sex, or providing sexual contraception. To begin the episode An assistant D.A is found murdered in a seedy location where Prostitutes are usually located. During the Investigation, detective Benson realizes that the suspect/victim, happened to be someone that she dated 5 years before. She found it hard to conceive that he would participate in such distasteful acts, but its soon revealed through more investigation that not only was he have sexual relations in that car, but it was with a man, and he was HIV positive. Olivia is then motivated to get herself tested since she admitted to having sexual relations with the victim, but used protection. The episode continues and shows that a sub-culture of lies and promiscuity is what leads to the possibility of multiple powerful individuals being destroyed when their Down Low Secret can be revealed. And it's up to these man to face who they are truly so that justice may prevail. This episode had a great look into something that is usually not talked about or acknowledge, and they used the subject matter, and all performances were great.moreless
