  • A stunning example of why I watch (and recently got back into) SVU...

    There may be spoilers ahead...

    What starts out as a routine case of possible kidnapping and then infanticide rapidly heads in a different direction when Dr Warner learns something obscure about the child's cause of death. When ADA Cabot learns of other cases similar and a disturbing trend of mothers who choose not to vaccinate their children, she charges one of these mothers for causing the death of the child. I don't want to reveal too much about the episode, but it is definitely another ripped from the headlines plot with invaluable lessons to common society. It was the first ever episode of SVU that my father watched and now he has to watch it every week. I'm mainly writing this in response to another reviewer who labeled this episode as "the worst show on SVU ever." Well, 'nuff said, but I should warn you that Sierra wasn't vaccinated because she was only 11 months old, it was the measles, not the flu, and yes, people (especially infants) do die from diseases on occasion, more significantly the latter. Anyone who watched this episode and understood what was being said would've know that...
