A rape victim is brought to the hospital after a harrowing hours-long ordeal, and Benson (Hargitay) recognizes the suspect's M.O. from a case she solved eight years ago.

The SVU squad is forced to reopen Benson's old case to determine if they are dealing with a copycat or a case of wrongful imprisonment. As Benson's detective work is challenged, her personal relationship with Executive ADA Haden (Connick) is also placed in jeopardy when Counselor Bayard Ellis (Braugher) gets involved. Also starring Ice-T (Detective Odafin Tutuola), Dann Florek (Captain Donald Cragen), Danny Pino (Detective Nick Amaro) and Kelli Giddish (Detective Amanda Rollins.)
