    8.0
    Law & Order, the longest running drama goes back in its history to pull out one of its earliest case. This is different for Law & Order for the fact that this show isn’t about its characters or how they live their lives, it all about the cases. That each case is self-contained and doesn’t affected the characters in the next episode, but this episodes breaks that format and brings up an old enemy from its past; Jacob Lowenstein, from the first season episode “Indifference”.

    This episodes goes back into its history with a case that comes from the first season episode “Indifference” and if you saw that episode it helps you greatly, because you will know what happen in that episode. The good thing with this episode is the fact that one didn’t need to see that episode to understand what had happen almost 15 years ago, because this episode explained what happen to the viewers who might of not seen that episode, which is good for people who had gotten into the series late. These refresher monuments are also good for the veteran viewers of the show because its help refresh their memories and bring up what had happen in that episode.

    This episode also shows that a show that is this old doesn’t forget old cases, that seem to disappear into thin air after an episode is aired, or where it been before and it also shows that old enemies of this show, that aren’t killed can come back to hunted you.

    While I did know that Jacob Lowenstein was a monster that did horrible things to his children and somebody like that should be kept away from other children at all coast, that he should of something nasty happen to him. Even with all of this over his head, you have to feel a little sorry for him because nobody should be killed despite what they did in the past.

    The real kicker in this episode is the fact that the person that had killed him was his own psychiatric therapist, who thought that after seeing him with another child with an arm injury, which was an innocuous accident, where she fell and broke her arm. That in fact that while he did do a horrible thing in the past, at the time that she had killed him he didn’t do anything that would warranted such an act.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: Despite his character being listed as a Lieutenant in the credits, Don Cragen is, in fact, a Captain, and has been since his debut in the first season.

    • The victim in this case, Jacob Lowenstein, was the villain in the first season episode "Indifference". Fans who have seen both episodes would have a hard time feeling any sympathy for Lowenstein because of his earlier crimes. Even Jack McCoy comments that he feels that Ben Stone was far too lenient on Lowenstein in the first season episode.

    • Goof: The character of Jacob Lowenstein tells Fontana and Green that he earned a law degree in prison and helped the other prisoners in order to keep from getting abused by them, because he was a child molester. This is an urban legend. It is a myth that prisoners can earn professional or advanced degrees while in prison, especially law degrees. Convicted felons forfeit several rights, including the right to be bonded for instance, and a felon would be ineligible to sit for the Bar exam. This bars them from business degrees as well. Most prison college courses are humanities courses.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Anita Van Buren: (to Joyce Draper on running Jacob Lowenstein down) You probably did the city a favor, hell, I wish I could throw you a parade. But you knew he'd violated parole, you could have picked up the phone and gotten him arrested again and sent back to prison.

    • (On if Carla Lowenstein would attack her ex husband.)
      Anita Van Buren: I don't think she would go near that man behind the wheel of a tank.

    • Jacob Lowenstein: Why would anyone want to hurt me?
      Joe Fontana: You're kidding, right?

    • Carla Lowenstein: You know what I want, in life? Not to think about him, not to remember him, not to talk about him. Not to hear his name. That's all.

    • (Talking to Fontana and Green about Didi Lowenstein's death.)
      Don Cragen: She was black, blue, and burned. When I'm having a bad night, this is the one that comes back and haunts me.

    • Joe Fontana: Talk about your public service homicide.
      Ed Green: If he dies.
      Joe Fontana: Well, it is rush hour.

  • NOTES (1)

    • This episode draws on characters and events from the first season episode "Indifference", which appeared to be ripped from the headlines of the Lisa Steinberg murder case. It is very unusual for Law & Order to do an episode based so closely on plot threads from an earlier one. The reason for the timing of the episode was the recent release of Lisa's killer, Joel Steinberg.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Woman: How's your daughter?
      Crossing Guard: Ten years old and acting like Lil' Kim.
      Lil' Kim is a rapper who is known for being outspoken and wearing flashy, revealing outfits.
