I just wanted to give them a father's love.
~ Albert justifying the multiple statutory rapes he committed.

Sean Albert is the main antagonist of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode "Father's Day". He is a sexual predator who manipulates the teenage donor daughters of his college rival, Colin Barnes, into believing that he is their real father, and then seduces them.

He was portrayed by James Van Der Beek, who also portrayed Tobias Hankel in Criminal Minds.


Early Life

Albert went to medical school at Cornell University, paying his tuition by taking the MCAT exam for other students. His then-girlfriend, Anne, broke up with him and started dating his classmate, Colin Barnes, who later got him expelled by telling the dean about his MCAT scam. Albert became obsessed with getting revenge against Barnes, especially after he married Anne, fathered a daughter, Taylor, and started a successful medical practice; he believed that Barnes had stolen the life that should have been his.

Years later, Albert learned that, in medical school, Barnes had donated sperm to an artificial insemination clinic, and tracked down his offspring, all teenage girls. He contacted them online through a website dedicated to reuniting donors with their biological children. He then met with them, and took advantage of their emotional vulnerability to have sex with them. In his mind, he was getting back at Barnes for ruining his life, as well as giving his daughters the "father's love" they did not get from the cold, arrogant Barnes. He impregnated one of his victims, Ashley Riggs, who gave birth to a son.

"Father Dearest"

One of Barnes' donor daughters, Cate Avery, finds out she was conceived with in vitro fertilization, and finds Albert online, posing as her donor father. She gets into an argument with her mother about meeting him and runs away, provoking the Special Victims Unit to investigate her disappearance. When they find her, she says she was meeting her biological father, but refuses to tell them his name. Detectives Olivia Benson and Amanda Rollins find a posting on her social media about a "Donor 141", and then go to a sperm bank posing as a lesbian couple looking to start a family with Donor 141's sperm. Further investigation leads them to Barnes, who denies having met his donor children. The detectives meet three more of Donor 141's daughters, who say that Barnes is not the man they met.

When questioned, Cate admits to having sex with the man she believes is her father; the other three do, as well. Genetic testing proves that Barnes is their father, however, and they are all devastated to learn that they were duped into having sex with a stranger. Realizing that their suspect is a sociopath with a grudge against Barnes, Benson, Rollins, and their fellow detective Nick Amaro investigate Barnes' life to find someone who is trying to hurt him or his family.

Meanwhile, Barnes' teenage daughter Taylor finds out that her father was a sperm donor and runs away to be with someone claiming to be her actual biological father - none other than Albert, who seduces her just as he had the other girls.

Rollins and Amaro learn that Albert had been at a party at Barnes' house and was seen talking to Taylor. They also find that someone calling himself "Cyrano" had emailed an MP3 of the jazz standard "My One and Only Love", a song which the other girls had told them their "father" had played while seducing them, and which Albert had played for Anne when they were dating. Albert suddenly texts Anne, saying the only way she will ever see Taylor again is if she meets with him. Rollins and her partner, Detective Fin Tutuola, arrest Albert, who demands to see Anne.

During questioning, Albert admits to meeting with Taylor and Barnes' other donor daughters, and rationalizes having sex with them by saying he was giving them "a father's love". He then tells Anne, whom he knows is watching through the two-way glass, that Barnes does not deserve her, and that he will only reveal Taylor's location to her. Anne agrees to speak with him, and even complies with his request to dance with him in front of Barnes so he will know what it feels like to watch her with another man. When she asks where Taylor is, he cruelly tells her that he killed her. However, the detectives eventually find Taylor at Albert's hotel, alive, unharmed, and demanding to see "her real father". Albert is then presumably convicted of and imprisoned for kidnapping and statutory rape.
