A boy makes a threat so the team investigates. He reveals that he was molested by the man his father worked for. But the parents won't let the boy testify because the man paid them as part of a confidentiality agreement. And if he does they have to return the money. So Casey tries to find a way around the agreement. But they take the boy out of the country. And later a woman claims the man did the same thing to her grand daughter. And they learn the woman is doing things to her grand daughter. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Superb Television
5 May 2019 | by jlthornb51See all my reviews

In an extraordinary episode of SVU, Ms. Cindy Williams gives what is nothing less than the performance of a lifetime. This is an actress on fire and this is acting that cries out to be seen. The Emmy's are once again negligent for not recognizing Williams' work and this example of her incredible talent. Not often enough has this superb actress been given an opportunity to show her skills and this is truly a fine showcase for her. It easily ranks as one of the most powerful performances ever to grace SVU and the other cast members were clearly in awe of what they were seeing. This is an episode of the series that should go into the time capsule and be highlighted when it's rebroadcast so this outstanding moment of exquisite acting be shared by audiences perpetually.
