Episode Summary

EDIT
Green and Cassady get mixed up with the Russian consulate after Peter Rostov dies of ricin poisoning. Their investigation leads them first to his work, where they learn he spent a great deal of time traveling back and forth between Russia, and secondly to his brother, Karl. It isn't long before they link the Rostov brothers to an illegal prostitution ring trafficking in young Russian woman, but McCoy is faced with trying to get the remaining Rostov brother to testify so he can prosecute Brezin, the father of one of the trafficked girls.moreless

  • One of the most moving episodes in a while, and very telling. SPOILERS!

    9.7
    Full of the type of twists and turns that can be expected from any good Law & Order episode, this one does not fail to deliver. However, the heart of it comes in the details.



    Aside from the small new fact that Det. Ed Green can speak Russian--"Only enough to get a date"--this episode reveals a lot about EADA Jack McCoy.



    One of the early episodes of the season sets up the fact that Jack has a daughter who does not speak to him. This one juxtaposes his issue with his daughter with a murderer trying to save his two girls from prostitution. Jack's troubled relationship with his daughter is very subtle and done in true Law & Order style. However, since the show goes to that emotional well so infrequently, it is extraodinarily powerful for even the brief minute or two. It is a touching father/daughter moment that will strike a chord with anyone who has ever found themself in a similar situation.



    Very well done.moreless
  • It got better as the episode went on.

    7.0
    At first, the episode couldn't hold my attention. I hardly even knew what was happening at first, not because I was confused, simply because I really didn't care all that much. But as the episode went on, it got better and better with each revelation. Finding the room full of girls, dealing with the possible diplomatic protection, the revenge for kidnapped daughter angle, Nadya being alive, whether the Father sold her or not, the true story about what the father did, all helped the story become better then it was at the start. However, we kept hearing about how these girls were being beaten and raped, yet they hardly acted traumatized, and the fear the actresses portrayed seemed minimal to that kind of torment if you ask me. And the cops almost seemed to throw that information away. So, not the best.moreless
  • Hope show doesn't get cancelled

    9.1
    I think that this is indeed one of the better shows. As the feds think that the Russian man dying of ricin was from terrorism but the ME says it was different. And it is up to the cops and McCoy to prosecute the man as McCoy threatens to tell the young girl about what the man is doing with prostitution. Meanwhile, loved the smile on McCoy's face when he is taking the first step to reconciling with his daughter, who may have stopped talking to him for what he is or was before being mellowed out.moreless
  • A very special episode!

    9.0
    This episode of Law & Order is one that deals with importing women and sex slaves and pimping them out, etc. Just like you would expect from an episode with this theme, it is very moving. Although I havent seen a great deal of season 17 episodes, I would say this is one of the best! It had just the right amount of action, drama, and suprises to keep you entertained. Also, with a very shocking ending (not in a dramatic way, but you'll see!), that reveals a lot about a character that has been part of the show since 1994!



    Overall, a very special episode!moreless
  • One of the few times in this dismal season I can say Above Average

    9.0
    Very good episode, it kept you on the edge of your seat most of the way through, even if the ending was a bit of a let down. Just goes to show how much has and has not changed since the so-called end of the Cold War between the United States and Russia. The driver Alex was the one who stood out for me, keeping Nadia hidden instead of killing her. Just as well she does not know the truth of what her father did. Nice touch at the end with McCoy reuniting with his estranged daughter; one of the few times I have ever seen him smile.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: Brezin's character is generally referred to as Nicolas throughout the episode, but during the scene where Green and Cassady chase Brezin into the Russian consulate, Green was yelling 'Joseph' rather than 'Nicolas'.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Karl Rostov: Your case is based on what, what some whores say about me? You know, I'm the one who lost a brother.
      Ed Green: Go ahead, call them whores one more time.

    • (McCoy maneuvers Brezin by threatening to give Nadia information.)
      Nicolas Brezin: You can't show this to her. You don't understand; you're twisting it all around.
      Jack McCoy: You can either explain it to me now… or to your daughter later.

    • Connie Rubirosa: Something Brezin said on the stand bothered me.
      Jack McCoy: Everything he said bothered me.

    • Connie Rubirosa: He would get a fair trial here.
      Andrei Karpovich: Yes, well, Guantánamo detention camps can lead one to think otherwise.

    • Nina Cassady: It's all in Russian, can you make it out?
      Ed Green: I'm actually not fluent. I just know enough to get a date.

    • Secretary: Mr. Rostov told me a joke once. An American businessman wants to know the Russian world for "rival." Same word as "dead."

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Andrei Karpovich: Like the old days at Checkpoint Charlie.

      This is a reference to a crossing point between East and West Berlin, often portrayed as a site of prisoner exchanges.
