Some serious rage
22 January 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

One of the best episodes of SVU ever done was this one where Erik Paladino made a second appearance as Detective David Duethorn who along with the SVU squad is investigating a multiple homicide. Some scene awaited all of them when they found a dinner party where two men and two women were found in a state of undress, all of them having been raped and sodomized before being shot. The perpetrator here is working off some serious rage.

And before the episode is done 11 people will die in the same grisly manner.

The investigation leads to one dysfunctional family with serious issues. Father Frank Langella is an abused parent who works as a super in one of those upper East Side buildings that the rich have apartments in. He's an alcoholic whose elder kid Ian Somerholder uses as a punching bag when nothing else is around.

Somerholder is boiling with rage, accumulated for years of being thought of as just hired help by the rich tenants. And younger brother Jason Ritter is totally dominated by Somerholder.

All three, Somerholder, Ritter, and Langella give unforgettable performances as the dysfunctional Baker family who also on top of everything else have some girl hostages stowed away. I wouldn't miss this episode as these three players really shine.
