  • Alex and the infamous red dress...

    9.0
    This episode will probably best be known as the infamous "date" episode with Alex (in a particularly sexy red dress) "dining with the enemy" Trevor Langdon, but it really is much more than that. It is heartbreaking and twisted and very creepy (and I'm not just talking about Munch going undercover without his glasses). The premise of this episode is sickening to say the least: A travel agent sets up tours for men to go to South America and have sex with young boys. Some of the men adopt the boys and turn them into their own personal sex slaves. What is uncovered is a deep rooted pediofile ring full of professional seemingly normal men. While it does follow a pretty straight forward plot (no major twists that leave you in awe) it is definitely an episode worth checking out.moreless

    One of the best episodes of all time! My personal favorite! Very sad story, very freaky ending. Great, great, did i mention great episode! I almost cried when I found out what happened to these boys, then i felt like throwing the perps up against the wall when they made excuses for what they did. When an episode does that to you, you know it was special.

    When the body of a young boy is found in the luggage compartment of a bus, the Detectives of the Special Victims Unit are called to the case. They find that the boy was badly abused for what looks like years. When they find the boys brother, he confesses to trying to get him and his brother to safety and awawy from the man who adopted them. He had these boy smuggled into the country to be used as his own personal play toys.



    This is a great episode. It is upsetting to see that yet again the rich in this country have done whatever they could to get what they want, which means taking advantage of the less fortunate in other countries.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Although it may be a coincidence because of where Terminal # 5 is, the logo on a JetBlue airplane can be clearly seen for a couple of seconds while Benson and Stabler are taking Ernesto into custody on the runway.

    • The Queens SVU cop says that the case belongs to Manhattan SVU because the bus came straight from the city without making any stops. But the bus did stop for 20 minutes in traffic on the Van Wyck Expressway. And while it is extremely unlikely that a child could go down the highway and hide in the luggage compartment of the bus without anyone seeing him or the driver being warned when the door was open, it is possible.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Tony Damon: (referring to Stewart Lynch) That rat bastard!
      John Munch: You'll have to be more specific. There's a lot of them running around in this case.

    • (Warner tries to explain Jensen's death to Benson and Stabler.)
      Dr. Melinda Warner: Jansen's genitals weren't exactly cut off. They were surgically excised ... Removed with a scalpel by someone who knows anatomy, and pre-mortem. (points to Stabler's neck) An amateur would have cut his throat straight across. Jansen's killer made precise cuts on the carotid artery here, and here, after... (starts to point to Stabler's groin)
      Elliot Stabler: You don't need to demonstrate that part.

    • Tony Damon: I don't know what you're talking about. (Stabler throws him against the wall and roughs him up a little)
      Elliot Stabler: You think I am some dumb cop? You think you're smarter than me?
      Tony Damon: I need a doctor!
      Elliot Stabler: You're gonna need a morgue, pal!

    • Walt Massey: I didn't force Shawn. I never beat him like Jansen beat his boys. It's not the same thing!
      Elliot Stabler: You're right. It's worse.

    • Elliot Stabler: (interrogating a suspect) You had sex with your stepson and you don't think there's anything wrong with that? What kind of sick bastard are you?

  • NOTES (1)

    • Parts of this episode were filmed at JFK Airport. Specifically at the abandoned TWA Terminal # 5, which was scheduled to be demolished and rebuilt.
