  • An interesting plot, something that has never really been done before, and introduction to elliot\'s new partner.

    8.0
    This episode was quite enjoyable, with a plot that has never been done before on this show, or any other show for that matter. The episode is about a girl who suffers from turners syndrome that causes her to look 12 instead of 17. Stuck between a crazy over-protective father, and her mother who has just come back into her life, she takes matters into her own hand, and descides that she wants to live with her 30 year old boyfriend. It really shows how over-protecting and over sheltering teenagers, with or without turners syndrome will cause them to act out or try to get away, although i think 17 is still too young to live with ur 30 boyfriend. We also get a glimps into elliots personal problems with both his wife and daughter. I liked how it was kinda a slap in elliots face tha the girl got to move in with her boyfrined instead of staying with her father, making him kinda realise that its bad enuff for his own daughters to have a cop for a father, he doesnt need to make it worse by being additionally overprotective. All in all, was a really interesting and different episode. its good that the show is not getting repatative and using the same kidnapping, lost children, and raped women story over and over again.moreless
  • Olivia departs briefly!

    9.4
    Where Olivia briefly departs and will be out for the next six weeks as she works for the feds. New officer Beck is described as tough as nail, foreign, and also overzealousness but in the end gets results.

    A teen with a wierd syndrome fakes her kidnapping in order to be near her 30-year old lover and Elliott faces problems at home.
  • Liv's gone =(

    8.8
    Man, Liv is gone. I hate that, but she needs to take care of August. I'm just glad she is back now. Anyways, besides that point. This was an okay episode. I thought it was so weird about how Jamie was 17 when she looked about ten years old. It was sad how every one thought she was a weird because of her genetic problemo. You never will know if that guy really did love Jamie of not. He could have loved her but I doubt it. He was just a really weird dude. I thought it was kinda cool though how Dani and Elliot met at the end though.moreless
  • Law and Order Special Victims Unit!

    6.0
    When two teens go missing after a school field trip, Detectives Stabler and Tutuola are called in to investigate. They find out that one of the students fake his own abduction in order to pay off a gambling debt while the other who has Turner Syndrome used the distraction to find a way to go off with her older boyfriend. This was a filler episode. It wasn't a very interesting episode to begin with. And the one thing that made it even worse was the fact that this episode marked the introduction of Elliot Stabler's new partner, Dani Beck. And everyone knows how much she is disliked!moreless
  • I haven't seen this episode yet, I admit. I'm very interested in seeing it, not only because I love SVU, but also I have Turner's Syndrome. I must take issue with something that appears grossly inaccurate.moreless

    8.0
    Maybe I'm jumping the gun here, but I read the recap here, and something strikes me as almost horrifyingly inaccurate. Yes, Girls with Turner's look much younger than they are. I was blessed with an unbelievably abnormally tall height of 5'3" without growth hormone. That's completely off the charts for TS. Yes, I still always looked young, though, but since I was lacking the #1 symptom of Turners (short stature) I wasn't diagnosed until I was 16. At that point, and being 5'3" on my own, they never bothered giving me Growth hormone. (fine with me). The thing that appears (from what I read) to be inaccurate about this episode is the discussion of the girl with TS having children. Most (and I mean like 98 something percent) of girls with TS NEVER produce and egg and never will. There is no "window" where we can conceive a child, except with a DONATED egg or embryo. A girl with TS having an opportunity to get pregnant with her own egg is about as likely as someone getting Aids from a mosquito who just feasted on an HIV+ person's blood.. Yes, a 100 million -1 shot, it may happen... but it's just that.. a 100 million to 1 shot.



    I don't think they should have sacrificed biological and scientific reality for the sake of another "plot twist" or "explanation" for why the girl has been doing what she is doing. BTW.. for the record.. I'm 28 and people are now FINALLY starting to guess my age at around 18.. LOL.. Of course I'm finally old enough that I don't mind looking young.. It was interesting when I was a 22-year-old High school teacher, though.. talk about "fitting in" LOL..moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Kathy Stabler: Why haven't you signed the divorce papers? It's been months, Elliot. You won't talk to me. You won't talk to my lawyer. The kids are asking if we're getting back together. I've run out of things to say.
      Elliot Stabler: What do you want?
      Kathy Stabler: An answer.
      Elliot Stabler: I don't know.
      Kathy Stabler: Well, I guess that's an answer.

    • Donald Cragen: What kind of guy wants to have sex with a girl who looks twelve apart from a pedophile?
      George Huang: It might look like she planned it, but I think she's being manipulated by someone who wants to mold her into his ideal sex object.
      Elliot Stabler: Yeah. A child he can have sex with legally.

    • Maia Graves: (speaking of Janey) She's very strong-willed.
      Elliot Stabler: What does that mean? You're the parent. You're in charge.

    • (Dani Beck has just told Stabler she is his new partner.)
      Elliot Stabler: Welcome to the world of gray.

    • Kathleen Stabler: I hate you!
      Fin Tutuola: Everything okay?
      Elliot Stabler: Man, you're lucky you don't have daughters.

  • NOTES (4)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Cragen: So who's Janey's Svengali?

      Svengali is a character from the novel, Trilby by George du Maurier. The protagonist, a hypnotist, molds a young women into his ideal. The term has entered the mainstream and is used, especially with male-female relationships, to show an unnatural dependence on the influencing person. Nadia Comaneci's Svengali was considered to be Béla Károlyi, for example.

    • Fin Tutuola: (to Greg Hartley) All right Svengoolie, show me what you got.
      A reference to late night TV host Svengoolie, who shows old horror movies late at night. Fin would have called him this because of the horrific state in which they think he left Janey.

    • While the TARU tech was going through Janey's computer, they came across her MySite website. MySite represents MySpace, which hosts personal websites where users can post blogs, pictures, et al.
