Plot Edit

Stabler works undercover investigating a violent animal smuggling ring believed to be connected to a young woman's murder.

The show starts with people hovering around Stabler who has been shot. It later shows doctors carrying him to a hospital bed. Then finally Detective Benson looking at her partner.

It shows "One Week Earlier" and has Benson and Stabler responding to a crime scene where a young woman was found mutilated. They are shocked to learn that the killer licked her. And that they bit into her neck! Stabler then pulls out a dead exotic bird out of the woman's purse.

(During an inpromptu lunch meeting)

Elliot Stabler: So what happened to the tiger?
Andre Bushido: (grins) Tasty bugger, isn't he?
Elliot Stabler: ... Ah. Never enjoyed tiger meat before.

(Bushido and Tybor have just burst into Kanicki's apartment, only to find Kanicki and Olivia Benson in a state of undress.)

Olivia Benson: Mmm. Are you ready for me, Daddy? (sees Bushido and Tybor) Ooh. Didn't realize this was a party. That'll be $100 to watch, $250 to join in...
Victor Tybor: I'll say this, Mike - you've got good taste.

(Elliot appears in the squadroom to join the investigation after being shot earlier)

Fin Tutuola: Told you he wouldn't take a day off. You owe me 50 bucks.

Background information and notes Edit

  • The gibbon rescued by the SVU appears to be a Lar Gibbon. The name given to it in the show is the white crested highland gibbon although there is no such species. The gibbon is also clearly too large to have been contained within a basketball.

  • Stabler's wound to his chest is said to be a "through and through" which would indicate that there would be an exit wound on his back, but when we see him holding the baby in the last scene, there is clearly no wound or bandage on his back.
