Background Information and Notes

  • This episode marks the first time a member of Tamin's family makes a physical appearance. Tamin previously mentioned having a father in the twenty-first season episode "At Midnight In Manhattan".
  • In Australia, "Return Of The Prodigal Son" aired before this episode on Channel Ten, most likely due to Law & Order: Organized Crime premiering the following week. When reruns of this episode air on Channel Ten, it is aired before "Return Of The Prodigal Son".
  • This is the last episode of SVU to air without another series in the franchise airing new episodes alongside SVU.
