Chicago and New York police continue the investigation into an unsolved rape and murder case
Benson and Voight lead their teams in the investigation of a rape/murder case that is frighteningly similar to a case from New York a decade ago. When forced to release their main suspect, the Chicago PD joins the SVU in New York in pursuit of Dr. Greg Yates.

- Dr. Yates: [after examining photographs of Nadia's death] Doctor, could Miss Decotis' injuries have been caused by her prostitution?
- Dr. Warner: It's unlikely. She was savaged.
- Dr. Yates: Savaged, you say? How so?
- Dr. Warner: In addition to the blunt trauma and strangulation, there were cuts on her nipples and external genitalia.
- Dr. Yates: And her anal sphincter, was that torn?
- Dr. Warner: Yes, it was.
- Dr. Yates: And these injuries, though not fatal, they would've been painful?
- Dr. Warner: Very. She died a slow death.
- Dr. Yates: How long did she survive after the first attack started?
- Dr. Warner: 30 minutes. Maybe longer.
- Dr. Yates: And she would've been in agony all through it?
- Judge Barth: Mr. Barba, not to put words in your mouth, but I'm willing to entertain an objection if you have one.
- Barba: I'm fine, your honor.
- Dr. Yates: Doctor, was she in a lot of pain?
- Dr. Warner: Yes. I'm sure she was.
- Dr. Yates: Were there signs of struggle?
- Dr. Warner: Yes. The skin was torn around the ligature marks.
- Dr. Yates: What goes through a victim's head in their final moments?
- Crane: Your honor, may I please speak with my client?
- Dr. Yates: No, I'm not done here.
- Crane: Short recess.
- Dr. Yates: Sit down.
- [Crane takes her seat]
- Dr. Yates: [to Dr. Warner] Back to Nadia. Would the terror, the fear, have flooded her with adrenaline?
- Dr. Warner: I can't answer that.
- Dr. Yates: Would she have awareness of what was going on? Would she understand that these were the final moments of her life?
- [Dr. Warner remains silent]
- Dr. Yates: Come on! Doctor, we are both medical people! Use your knowledge!
- [he suddenly looks around and sees that the entire courtroom is staring at him]
- Dr. Yates: [nervously] Or... Or don't.
