  • One of the best SVU episodes I have ever seen. Still makes me cry.

    This was a big tear-jerker for me. Of course, the highlight is the debut of Diane Neal as ADA Casey Novak, but the rest of the script is very well-written. It is so sad to see Brianna Morris and her baby killed, especially when the Wolcotts were trying to provide a better life for her. Dr. Newlands proved to be a conniving, two-timing evil man who cheated on his wife, then went out of his way to lie about it. And then how sick is Peter Nessler, the sicko who puts honey on his Johnson and tells little girls to lick it. The ending when Casey finds Courtney Jones in the cooler is sad, but it shows that Ms. Novak is the right fit as the SVU's ADA.
