A high-society bachelor party ends in tragedy when an escort is found dead, and the SVU Squad must proceed with caution as influential people try to bury the truth.

Plot Edit

An underage escort is found dead at a wild bachelor party, and Captain Cragen cautions his team to investigate with discretion, as there were several high-profile people at the scene. In their efforts to question a well-known leader in the New York escort world, Benson and Amaro encounter former SVU detective Brian Cassidy, who's been working undercover. With his help, the detectives dig deeper into a vicious power struggle between the two top escort businesses, but before the case is cracked, a shocking event threatens to destroy the life of one SVU squad member.

Summary Edit

The body of an underage escort is discovered during the bachelor party of Will Brady, who is the police commissioner's son. Due to the high-profile guest list, Will moves the body into the pool. It is later discovered that the girl didn't drown, she was poisoned. The investigation reveals a turf war between two different escort companies which is starting to become deadly.

Cassidy, who is working undercover leads Olivia to a New York madame named Delia Wilson, who has a long list of influential clients. After a former governor dies from a similar poison, the detectives are able to get enough evidence to arrest Delia, but she is quickly bailed out.

One of Delia's rivals' escorts, Carissa goes to Amaro, saying that she is afraid for her life. At the end of the episode, Cragen discovers Carissa's dead body in his bed which leaves the episode in a cliffhanger ending.
