Lucy Huston: [Knocking on door; Carisi opens it and let's Lucy in] Hey, Detective Carisi.
Dominick Carisi, Jr.: Hey, Lucy, uh, Liv's not here.
Lucy Huston: She's not? I'm a little worried. I sent her to the brownstone of another family I sit for. I had a really strange vibe from the mom...

Olivia walks in on a home invasion
14 January 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In the 17 seasons of SVU Mariska Hargitay gets put into more dangerous situations than your average cop. This time at the behest of baby Noah's sitter Bronwyn Reed she walks in on a home invasion taking place at another of Reed's sitter clients. A husband and wife, daughter and son are taken hostage while the robbers look for a hidden fortune.

This is how a lot of home invasions originate, someone hears a rumor and it gets to the wrong ears. A former employee heard that this family has a safe in the home with a fortune in cash. So his junkie sister and her junkie boyfriend decide on a robbery. Of course there's no truth to the rumor.

But that doesn't make Joe Reegan, Amber Skye Noyes, and James McMenamin any less dangerous simply because their stupid.

Sergeant Olivia Benson keeps a cool head and of course everything comes out all right.

Our three junkies are real specimens of human waste, but the players offer compelling portrayals.
