Detectives Briscoe and Logan investigate the death of a building superintendent who is found dead in the basement of his apartment building. He was well-liked by everyone it seems and was conscientious and good at his job. It looks like someone may have broken into the basement but forensic analysis reveals that the scene was staged. The police quickly focus on the dead man's son, Sean, a brilliant student who goes to a private school and has been accepted at Princeton. The boy is obviously embarrassed by his father low stature and Dr. Elizabeth Olivet concludes that he is in fact a sociopath. ADA Stone will have to convince the jury of that and get them to look beyond the boy's good looks and obvious accomplishments. Written by garykmcd

Jerry Orbach and Chris Noth investigate the case of a building superintendent being beaten to death in the boiler room of his basement apartment. The trail leads sadly enough to the victim's son Gabriel Olds.

The family which also consists of mother Pamela Robin-Wright and daughter Maureen McKinnon lives in a basement apartment that I would kill to have on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, but is part of the package of being a building super. Olds who has grown up around wealth wants more than anything to break into that. There was another episode on the sister Law And Order program SVU where Frank Langella is abused by one of his two sons.

In this family Olds is academically smart and is looking at admission to Princeton. But he wants to be part of that privileged Ivy League scene and the whole family is terrorized by him as he's become psychotically obsessed.

Olds really stands out in this episode.
