Alexandra Cabot: Jersey won't play ball.
Elliot Stabler: Okay. What can we do?
Alexandra Cabot: File an official request, let it go through channels.
Elliot Stabler: By the time we get that answer, Brodus will be dead and buried.
Alexandra Cabot: We can't tell another state how to run its business. New Jersey already has an inferiority complex when it comes to New York. They're digging in their heels on principle.

Getting used to

B.D. Wong was not even an SVU regular yet when he did this story as one of the guest cast. His character is an FBI profiler who gets teamed with Christopher Meloni as Meloni goes to interview a convicted sex offender serial killer Nick Chinlund about a new lead on an old case.

Of course later on when Wong becomes detached from the FBI and part of the team they work well. But now it becomes something of a contest as Meloni and Wong match expertise. Guess who wins?

But this features a pair of specimens who are clearly arguments for the death penalty. Nick Chinlund and a former cellmate Timothy Wheeler will terrify you. In fact Wheeler gets over on Stabler causing him no small amount of embarrassment.

Some people are pure evil and this episode demonstrates that. It also shows that Dr. George Huang and Detective Elliott Stabler will take a bit of getting used to.
