    DEATH TO OLIVIA BENSON!!!
  • I was upset about 2 thing in this episode.

    3.5
    This episode for me felt to much information was left out a big part. (Why did the 8 year old girl get away with stabbing a boy?) The second half is about Zoe the so called addopted mother battles with the grandparents of the 8 year old. The show had the worst ending with Zoe leaving with the 8 year old girl; that shold be in Jail for attempted murder. This show should have been on for two hours to give more information.

  • A 12 year old gets stabbed by an 8 year old girl he bullied every day becasue her parents were gay.

    7.7
    Great episode......I loved it, even though I saw the ending coming miles away. It has been one of the best episodes so far, this season.



    A boy's body is dumped in front of the hospital with a stab wound in his back, and just when I was getting ready for the usual, raptist tid bit......it changed on me, and boy, change can be good sometimes.



    Eight year old Emma stabs the 12 yr old bully after months of torment, and she finally snaps when he cuts off her hair and she stabs him with a scissors in the back, which fractured his spinal cord and left him paralyzed. She was able to get a plea of anger management classes after it was proven that she was the true victim.



    But, poor kid, after her criminal case was over, her grandparents sued for custody from her other mommy (Zoe) after her birth mother dies of Lupus (before she died Emma's mom gave Zoe full custody in her will).



    Long story short ZOe was able to retain full custody of Emma after it was revealed to be a set up by her grandparents' lawyer to fight a cause against homosexuals rasising kids.



    Overall, a great episode.

  • Definitely not my favorite storyline

    7.1
    I had a hard time watching the episode because no adult at the little girl's school helped her. The priest tried but almost lost his job because of it. Every adult in the little girl's family came under suspect for some reason or another. It was sad watching this little girl cry scene after scene.
  • Definately not one of the better episodes, but ok.

    8.2
    I do feel sorry for the boy because he will never walk again, but he brought that on himself. Bullying gets people nowhere and someone always gets hurt. This little girl fought back the only way she could, with the scissors the boy used to cut her ponytail. The grandparents lawyer was only trying to make himself look better.

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Olivia Benson: Here's your proof that Sean Hamill's a bully. 'There's a game I want to play with you after school, it may hurt a bit but it'll cure you from being a queer', and that's not the worst one. You know I have to present this to the defense, and as soon as the jury sees these, Sean's credibility goes out the window.

    • Millie Vizcarrondo: Found these scissors in the school dumpster.
      Fin: She means I found them, underneath the tuna casserole. All she did was stand there and point.

    • Elliot Stabler: You don't send your kids to military school if you're a pacifist.

    • Mrs. Hamill: Emma Boyd should never have been accepted at St. Victor's.
      Olivia Benson: Why, because her moms are gay?
      Mr. Hamill: Look, we pay a lot of money to give Sean a private education. We should have a say in deciding what he's exposed to.
      Olivia Benson: So you told your son it was okay to pick on an eight-year-old girl.
      Mrs. Hamill: We told him that he should feel sorry for people like Emma's moms and that he should pray for them.
      Elliot Stabler: Well, that's not the message he got.
      Mr. Hamill: Did that girl stab Sean?
      Elliot Stabler: Yeah.
      Mr. Hamill: Then I don't care if he called her a fag dyke whore bitch from Hell. Arrest her.

    • John Munch: Since when did New York become a red state?

      During the 2004 presidential election, states won by the Republicans were called red states and states won by Democrats were called blue states.
