When talking to the little girl, Olivia mutes the polycom speaker phone device as the girl recites a rhyme so she can argue with captain Cragen. The LEDs on the polycom speaker phone device change from Green to Red to indicate the phone has been muted. In the next few seconds, Cragen makes a statement about how the traffic sounds are looped in the background and the as the camera follows him as he moves closer to press a button, the polycom is shown to be illuminated in green (unmuted). In the following seconds Olivia is shown unmuting the phone, turning the LEDs from red back to green. See more »

This is one of the best episodes of this great series.(I think the first one is also one of the greatest too). I can feel the tension growing and my heart pounding. It was also so well direct. The shot of Hargitay's face are great. They help built the tension and the heartache. There was a moment when Olivia has to decide whom to believe: her instinct or the technology. You have to see it to know what she decided but I am sure you can already guest. Olivia is at her most in terms of empathy, determination and intelligence. Hargitay has done a great job performing one of the most beautiful characters on television. What a great 10 years and still counting. Keep the good work. Few more season please...
