  • The father inside Elliot is shown as he sympathizes with a father put on trial for killing his daughter's rapist.

    This episode was done to near perfection. The only thing missing was Olivia. I could have used some more scene with her in them. On the positive, however, Christopher Meloni really got to shine as Elliot in this episode. Being a father and having fantasized about killing rapists himself, Elliot's judgment is called in question as he identifies with a man who killed his daughter's rapist, after she killed herself. In a real tearjerker of a scene, Elliot confronts the man after he killed the rapist. The man has gun in his hands, saying now he just wants to be with his daughter. Elliot has to talk him out of it, saying some of the nicest thing I've heard him say. It was really unnerving to see Elliot so shook up and so invested in the case to the point he actually had tears in his eyes. This was an outstanding episode due to Christopher. Somebody get this man an Emmy!
