Detectives Olivia Benson and Nick Amaro lead the search for a serial killer who targets young prostitutes.
Detective Benson and Executive ADA Haden's romantic weekend is interrupted by news that an underage prostitute has gone missing. As the SVU detectives dig into her disappearance, they find a pattern of several missing escorts who all posted ads on a popular newspaper’s website. The line between Benson and Haden's personal and professional lives starts to blur as the squad races against the clock to find the girl before it's too late. Eventually, with the help of an escaped victim, the detectives track down the killer, but Amaro is forced to kill him to save Benson. They rescue the victim and find the bodies of eleven other victims during the investigation, but learn that he killed fifteen people.

Background information and notes
- This episode was inspired by the real-life crimes of the Long Island serial killer, who is currently unidentified and unapprehended.
- Graham Winger's unassuming appearance and his habit of abducting, hunting and raping his victims is most likely inspired by the real-life serial killer Robert Hansen, who raped over 30 women and killed between 17 and 21 of them.
- While it is not stated directly, it's obvious that the film Haden and Benson are discussing at the beginning of the episode is The Artist.
- This is the first time Detective Nick Amaro has killed a perpetrator. It occurred when the suspect was about to shoot Olivia and his victim, who survived his attacks.
