Elliot asks the kid his name and he says "Tommy" when asked for his last name he claims he doesnt know. he says his moms name is "mommy" then jumps into Elliot's arms and says he wants his daddy.



He refuses to let go of Elliot and no-one could find out who he belongs to. He is brodcasted live over the news as the kid with one name and soon people come in to get him. Meanwhile Elliot takes him home and gives him a bath and fresh clothes. When a legit person comes claiming Tommy Elliot checks with Tommy first to see if its his dad. tommy responds by leaping out of Elliots arms and runs to the guy screaming daddy.

Then some disturbing news surfaces, Jake keegan isnt Tommy's biological father. while arguing whether or not they should tell Jake benson and Stabler realise that he is in the room.



Stabler and Keegan talk about it for a while and the conversion ends with Keegan's groundbreaking statement; how would you feel if you found out that one of your children wasnt yours.

While talking to his wife Stabler gets a call from olivia about a fight in the keegan house between the husband and the boyfriend, matt. matt showed up and wanted to see Tommy so jake attacked him. Stabler arrests them both.



it only gets worse as Stabler finds out that Jake is irrevocably connected to Tomy by law meaning that even though he isnt the biological father he still would have to pay child support and alimony.



Matt filed for custody of tommy and jake brings tommy but sends him up with another detective and leaves. Tommy says that his daddy went away and his mommy went away too just like jodi. Stabler and benson go out looking for them when they arrive at the house they find leah dead and no sign of Jake. Stabler presumes he went out by his lakehouse in north forks to kill himself and tells the officers there to hold him and benson offers to take kathy for her check-up.
