‘Law & Order: SVU’ season 16, episode 12 preview: A major story for Danny Pino’s Nick Amaro

SVU -It was only a week ago that we had a very emotional episode of “Law & Order: SVU” that focused heavily on the character of Amanda Rollins. Next week, you better prepare yourself for something very personal yet again. “Padre Sandunguera” is the title for this particular installment, and based on what we know right now, this is going to require him to decide between his family and his job in many ways. It’s great material for Danny Pino, and it proves that life just doesn’t seem to be getting any easier for this guy. Remember what happened to him going into this season?

For a few more details, take a look at the synopsis below (if you have not seen it already):

“Amaro’s father, Nicolas (Armand Assante), invites his estranged family to his wedding with a 28-year-old woman. When Amaro declines the invitation, a fight ignites at the wedding, causing Nicolas to become arrested. Amaro is required on stand as a witness, forced to reveal family secrets and faced the possibility of tearing his family apart.”

This installment is set to be the last one of the month of January. After this, the series is going to be going on a short hiatus, and will return with many episodes throughout the month of February. There is still more than half of the season left to go, which is very significant when it comes to getting the opportunity to see a variety of other powerful stories play out.
