Episode Summary

EDIT
The team investigates when young Carly Hunter disappears while walking home from school one day. While processing evidence found at the scene, Warner realises that the little girl has leukemia, and they need to get her home as soon as possible to begin treatment. Despite the ransom drop going wrong, the detectives are able to find the little girl thanks to evidence O'Halloran finds at the scene, but as she tells her story to Stabler and her mother, it soon becomes clear that her kidnapper is someone very close to home. Stabler and Warner end up becoming hostages when the kidnapper approaches Jake Hunter directly.moreless

  • Far fetched in places

    7.5
    There is no way the family would not have mentioned the son right at the begining of the investigation - if a child is kidnapped the family would give ALL information to the police and not keep anything back, especially as it was a family member who used to live with them.
  • Kick ass

    A Warner centric episode......how can I not love it. I have much respect for Tamara Tunie as an actress, not so much from SVU, but from her role on ATWT.



    We learn that Warner was in the Air Force...interesting.



    The whole deal with Stabler having no home to go to, but to his court at the station.......was a very dumb and useless scene.



    Anyway, to the episode: A girl gets kidnapped by her big brother, which was not surprising because I knew it was someone close to the family who did it. His a drug addict and he wants money to pay off his dealers no less. But when he does not get what he wants he goes straight to the horse's mouth so to speak by holding up his father's bank. That scene was just put in to show Warner use a gun.



    Overall, great episode......that's probably the 3rd or 4th great episode, this season.moreless
  • Other than the doctor getting more air time, boring

    6.2
    The doctor's background info was the most exciting thing on the episode. The plot line was weak and predictable. You could tell the parents knew more than they were letting on. You knew the son would rob the bank. And you knew the son would end up shooting the father.
  • Abduction of a little girl-->great episode!

    In this incredible episode, we learn so much more about M.E. Warner, who was always one of my favorite characters. The show was full of suspense, and actually kind of scary at times when the ransom calls were being made. The episode ended with a \"bang\" as the medical examiner makes an unexpected move. One of the best SVU episodes I\'ve ever seen!
  • It was alright except for the fact that Mariska Hargitay was only in it once and she is what bring that show to the more excitable side.With Mariska Harigay and Chris Meloni together it make that show what it is .moreless

    In the show MH and CM talk for like five seconds an it appears as if she has been working on a different case then him but they always work together which is what i good about them because it is great to see the different oppinions between the two of them and the don't show it becaus Mariska is pregnant and if they don't put her back in with him then I am not going to watch the show until they do.I kno that she is pegnant but she is what makes he show is how she interacts with all of the other characters it makes the show alot more interesting and I mean that to.I think that it will be very sad if she quits the show.The show will go right down the toilet.moreless

    • Elliot Stabler: No offense, but med school doesn't exactly prepare you for something like this.
      Melinda Warner: The Air Force did. They paid for medical school. I did two tours at Ramstein during Desert Storm. I know how to handle myself around men with guns.

    • ESU Lt.: We got gunfire, we may have casualties. There's no time to talk this guy down.
      Don Cragen: I'm in command here, we do it my way. Daniel Hunter is a scared kid.
      ESU Lt.: Yeah, with a Mac-10, high on coke, and holding a dozen hostages.

  • NOTES (4)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The title of this episode, "Blast", is a short name used to refer to lymphoblasts (immature white blood cells). In leukemia patients, the blasts are abnormal because they never mature and do not behave like the normal mature white blood cells.
