When Fin leaves the country to capture a rapist, Barba finds himself in the middle of a political tug-of-war battle. Also, multiple scurrilous allegations against Benson lead her to reunite with an old acquaintance.
Sergeant Fin Tutuola catches a fugitive rapist in Cuba, but is soon accused of kidnapping the perp. The case puts A.D.A. Rafael Barba in a political tug-of-war controversy, which could severely damage the case.
Meanwhile, Olivia saves Noah from being run over after crossing the road and almost colliding with a taxi. This gives Noah a bruise, to which he tells the school that Olivia hurt him. The school files a report, which brings former SVU detective and Olivia’s ex boyfriend Brian Cassidy to investigate Olivia.
