  • Great! Great! Great!

    This episode was in the top 5 of the best episodes of this series. You where and still are guessing to who did kill this women and her baby. From the very beiging of this episode it got your brain thinking what the heck is going on here. I love episodes like this on where they get the whole cast involed to where they can play off eachother. I also liked that the gust didn't still the show. I liked that they didn't do the nomal episode they didn't solve the crime then go to the courtroom and have a sentce.moreless
  • "Is your daughter still drinking and driving or has she moved up to something stronger?" That was the best line in the entire episode.

    4.4
    Nothing really happened in this episode and the whole scene with Stabler and Finn was uncall for...since Stabler's children are more screwed up than Ken.



    SVU keeps getting worse as with every season and episode. The whole scenario with Ken digging up the body that his cousin/brother buried made absoltuey no sense whatsoever.



    The only plus to this episode was the conversation between Olivia and Finn.
  • One of the best episode yet!

    "Venom" was am amazing episode, we now get some background on Fin's life and we get a big shocking secret! ludacris was actually really good in this episode and with all the tension within the squad it was quite intense. Also Fin's son Ken was really good too, his performace has improved a lot since his first apperance.



    Two thumbs up great episode and becuase Munch and Fin got to be more involved in the storyline.moreless
  • Definitely not the best. Seemed sort of lackluster.

    6.4
    Not to happy with this episode. The show practically screamed that the cousin-who-is-actually-Ken's-brother did it. Elliott and Tituola really got into it, with the verbal sparring match.



    A little annoying if you ask me. Just cuz your mom gives you up doesn't mean you're not wanted. The grandmother apparently wanted him or she would have given him up to adoption. It had a sucky story line. Felt sorry for the man, glad to know that he got resolution and closure.moreless
  • Fin's son returns to the show in order to -- semi-inadvertantly -- lead the detectives to the body of a woman murdered with her baby three years ago. Family drama (and trauma) ensues.moreless

    8.0
    Not exactly spectacular in terms of the writing, but the plot was a solid one. What raises the bar for this episode were the guest turns by the exquisitely (and surprisingly) talented Ludacris (Who knew he could act, *too*?) and Darnell Williams, who a few of you may remember from All My Children.
