He's the latest in a string of recent hate crimes against gay men, and before the SVU squad can arrest a suspect, a school teacher (guest star Tony Hale), is similarly brutalized even though he doesn't fit the pattern. As the detectives search for a connection, they learn that he was dismissed from an elite private school for having an inappropriate relationship with a student (guest star Dylan Minnette, NBC's "Awake.") In trying to make their case, they quickly realize the facts don't add up and another teacher (guest star Jane Adams) may hold the clues to what really happened. Also starring Mariska Hargitay (Detective Olivia Benson), Richard Belzer (Sergeant John Munch), Danny Pino (Detective Nick Amaro) and Kelli Giddish (Detective Amanda Rollins.) Special appearance by Martha Stewart and Stephanie March (ADA Alex Cabot).
