Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999–…): Season 10, Episode 9 - PTSD - full transcript

SVU clashes with the Marines over jurisdiction in a case involving the murder in New York of a pregnant soldier who claims she was raped in Iraq. During the investigation, Benson has traumatic flashbacks of her sexual assault.

(male announcer)
IN THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM,

SEXUALLY BASED OFFENSES ARE
CONSIDERED ESPECIALLY HEINOUS.

IN NEW YORK CITY,
THE DEDICATED DETECTIVES

WHO INVESTIGATE
THESE VICIOUS FELONIES

ARE MEMBERS
OF AN ELITE SQUAD

KNOWN AS
THE SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT.

THESE ARE THEIR STORIES.

[woman's voice echoing]
I CAN STILL SMELL HIM.

THE BURNING DIESEL CRAP.

HE SAID WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN A SLUT...

[normal voice]
BETWEEN A SLUT AND A BITCH?



A SLUT WILL SCREW ANYTHING,

AND A BITCH WILL SCREW
ANYTHING BUT YOU.

AND THEN HE WAS IN ME.

DIDN'T EVEN TAKE OFF
HIS KEVLAR.

HE VIOLATED YOU,
ROCHELLE.

IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT.

YEAH.
[sniffles]

BUT I WAS THE ONE
THAT HAD TO HIT THE HEAD

FOR SNEAKING BEER,

AND I WAS THE ONE
WITHOUT MY M4.

I HAD MINE,
AND I STILL GOT RAPED.

WELL, THEN, YOU SHOULD HAVE
KILLED THAT BASTARD, KAYLA.

I'M ALWAYS STRAPPED NOW.

YOU...



YOU CAN'T CARRY
A CONCEALED WEAPON.

IF YOU GET CAUGHT,
YOU'LL GO TO PRISON.

[laughs]

SOUNDS BETTER
THAN GETTIN' RAPED.

WELL, THEN I THINK
WE SHOULD END HERE.

KEEP WRITING IN YOUR JOURNALS,
AND REMEMBER TO BREATHE.

HI. I NEED YOU
TO OPEN YOUR JACKET.

GET OFF ME.

THIS IS A SAFE PLACE.

EVERYTHING THAT IS SAID
IN SESSION IS CONFIDENTIAL.

OKAY.

YOU ARE A CLIENT HERE,
OLIVIA.

AND I AM A COP,

AND I CANNOT LET YOU
LEAVE WITH A GUN.

WHERE'D YOU GET THIS?

IF THERE ARE ANY BODIES
ON THIS GUN,

YOU ARE GONNA BE
IN DEEP.

NOW, I DON'T WANT THAT.
DO YOU?

I JUST WANNA FEEL SAFE
AGAIN.

GO HOME.

MY OFFICE.

YOU KNOW,
YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE ADDRESSING

YOUR ANXIETY
FROM SEXUAL ASSAULT.

I PUT YOU WITH THESE WOMEN

BECAUSE YOU HAVE
THE SAME MINDSET.

AND IF YOU KNEW THAT ROCHELLE
RODRIGUEZ WAS CARRYING,

YOU SHOULD HAVE
REPORTED IT.

I HAD MY SUSPICIONS.

NO ONE WOULD TRUST ME
IF I FRISKED THEM.

AND I HAD PROBABLE CAUSE.

YOU CROSSED THE LINE,
OLIVIA.

WHEN WE'RE IN SESSION,
YOU HAVE TO PUT YOUR JOB ASIDE.

NOT IF THEY BREAK THE LAW.

OLIVIA.

ONE OF MY PATIENTS
IS MISSING.

SHE COULD BE IN TROUBLE.

JESSIE CREWES.

SHE WENT AWOL
FROM CHERRY POINT A MONTH AGO.

SHE HEARD THAT I WAS DOING

PRO BONO WORK
WITH MILITARY RAPE VICTIMS,

AND SHE CAME HERE
FOR THERAPY.

SO FILE
A MISSING PERSON'S REPORT.

I CAN'T DO THAT.
THEY'D PUT HER IN THE BRIG.

MARGO, SO WILL I.

IF I FIND HER,
I HAVE TO ARREST HER.

SHE WAS RAPED SEVEN MONTHS AGO
BY A FELLOW MARINE.

SHE'S PREGNANT, OLIVIA.

SHE'S HAVING
HER RAPIST'S BABY?

WHEN IS THE LAST TIME
YOU SAW HER?

THREE DAYS AGO.

SHE WAS UPSET,
BUT SHE WOULDN'T SAY WHY.

(landlord)
SHE HASN'T BEEN A TENANT
THAT LONG,

BUT YOU'RE THE SECOND PERSON
TO COME LOOKIN' FOR HER.

WHO WAS THE FIRST?

SOME GUY I SAW HER WITH.

THEY WERE HAVING
A PRETTY HEATED ARGUMENT.

WHEN?

COUPLE OF DAYS AGO.

WHAT DID HE LOOK LIKE?

WHITE GUY,
THIRTIES, MILITARY.

I MEAN, OUT OF UNIFORM,

BUT THE HAIRCUT AND POSTURE
GAVE HIM AWAY.
[cell phone rings]

EXCUSE ME--BENSON.

WHERE?

GREAT.
THANK YOU, FIN.

FIND HER?

WE FOUND HER CAR.

(woman)
I THINK IT'S THIS WAY...YEAH.

HERE IT IS.
TOWED FROM OUTSIDE BATTERY PARK.

WHAT'S THAT SMELL?

STAND BACK, PLEASE, MA'AM.

OH...[breathes hard]

[woman whimpering]

[vomiting]

[breathing hard]

UH, MANHATTAN SVU
TO CENTRAL.

I NEED A BUS AND CSU
AT CITY IMPOUND.

HAVE SECTORS CANVASS
ALL HOSPITALS

FOR A SIX- TO EIGHT-WEEK-OLD
PREMATURE NEWBORN.

(male operator)
COPY THAT. AMBER ALERT
PROTOCOLS COMMENCING.

INFANT'S RACE?

THE MOTHER'S CAUCASIAN.
THE FATHER'S...UNKNOWN.

RIGOR'S SET.
T.O.D.'S ABOUT 12 HOURS.

SHE HAS BRUISING
AROUND HER THROAT.

LOOKS LIKE
SHE WAS YOKED.

ONE JAGGED STAB WOUND
TO THE BACK.

ANY WAY THE BABY

COULD HAVE SURVIVED
THE ATTACK?

HOW FAR ALONG WAS SHE?

32, MAYBE 33 WEEKS.

THE LUNGS
AREN'T FULLY DEVELOPED YET,

BUT THAT'S NOT
WHAT WORRIES ME.

YOU THINK
THE BABY WAS CUT.

I'D BE SURPRISED
IF IT WASN'T.

THE KILLER REALLY HACKED UP
THE WOMB.

I GOT PIECES OF PLACENTA

AND PART OF
THE UMBILICAL CORD.

I'LL RUSH DNA
ON THE CORD BLOOD,

SEE IF WE CAN I.D.
THE FATHER.

DETECTIVE BENSON?

YEAH.

COMMANDER BRENT MARCUS,
JAG CORPS.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE
SO FAR?

WELL, WE'RE JUST
GETTING STARTED.

I'LL SEE YOU COPIES
OF THE RECORDS WHEN WE'RE DONE.

I DON'T THINK SO.

UH, THIS IS
A CIVILIAN HOMICIDE.

OF AN ACTIVE DUTY
AWOL MARINE.

NOW, WE CAN RUN THE SHOW,

BUT I DON'T SEE
ANY REASON TO INTERFERE

UNLESS YOU GIVE ME ONE.

OKAY, I'M GONNA NEED
THE VICTIM'S MILITARY RECORDS

AND A FILE
ON HER RAPE COMPLAINT.

WHAT DOES THE SEXUAL ASSAULT
HAVE TO DO WITH THE MURDER?

HER KILLER CUT THE BABY
OUT OF THE VICTIM'S WOMB.

ISN'T IT POSSIBLE,
DETECTIVE,

THAT SOME WOMAN TARGETED HER
AND BABY-SNATCHED?

NO WOMAN
CUT HER VICTIM OPEN,

DRAGGED THE BODY,

AND THEN STUFFED IT
INTO THE TRUNK OF HER OWN CAR.

THE ONLY MOTIVE HERE
IS DESTROYING EVIDENCE.

NOW, WOMEN IN THE MILITARY
PUT THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE

ONLY TO BE ATTACKED BY
THEIR OWN MEN--LIKE OUR VICTIM.

WHO NEVER I.D.'D
HER RAPIST.

BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T KNOW HIM,

OR BECAUSE SHE WAS AFRAID
YOU'D DO NOTHING ABOUT IT.

THAT DOESN'T EVEN
DESERVE A RESPONSE.

IT'S STILL AN OPEN FILE.

WHICH I NEED ACCESS TO
SO I CAN SOLVE HER MURDER.

THAT'S NOT POSSIBLE.

AND WHY'S THAT?

BECAUSE SHE WAS RAPED
IN IRAQ,

WHERE THE CRIME SCENE
AND MOST OF HER UNIT

ARE STILL IN THEATER.

HOW LONG
HAS THE INFANT BEEN MISSING?

(Fin)
ABOUT 12 HOURS.

ANY HITS
ON THE AMBER ALERT?

HUNDREDS.
NONE THAT HAVE PANNED OUT.

DO WE HAVE ANY IDEA
WHERE THIS MARINE WAS KILLED?

A LARGE POOL OF BLOOD
WAS FOUND IN BATTERY PARK.

THE LAB'S TESTING IT NOW.

SHE WAS STATIONED
IN NORTH CAROLINA.

WHAT WAS SHE DOING
IN NEW YORK?

SHE WENT AWOL
TO JOIN A THERAPY GROUP

THAT SPECIALIZES IN TREATING

MILITARY RAPE VICTIMS
WITH PTSD.

THAT'S A LONG WAY
TO TRAVEL FOR THERAPY.

IT'S A LONG
WAITIN' LIST,

AND RETURNING VETS
NEED HELP NOW.

HAVE WE TRACKED CREWES'
RECENT MOVEMENTS?

SHE SUBLET AN APARTMENT,
USED ONLY CASH.

WE CANVASSED HER BLOCK.
SHE DIDN'T GO OUT MUCH.

DRUG STORE, CORNER MARKET--
THAT'S ABOUT IT.

SHE WAS SEEN ARGUING
WITH AN UNIDENTIFIED MALE

TWO DAYS AGO.

THAT'S WHY I PULLED
SURVEILLANCE PHOTOS

FROM LOCAL ATMs, HOPING
WE'D FIND A STALKER SHADOW.

(Fin)
SOMEONE WAS HUNTING HER.
YOU DUMP HER PHONE?

(Munch)
SEVERAL INCOMING CALLS

FROM A DISPOSABLE CELL PHONE

AND TWO FROM A MIDTOWN
HOTEL PAY PHONE.

YOU RUN 'EM DOWN?
THE HOTEL WAS FULL.

THE PAY PHONES
WERE IN THE LOBBY.

ANYBODY COULD HAVE COME IN OFF
THE STREET TO MAKE THOSE CALLS.

WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT
THE SEXUAL ASSAULT?

NEXT TO NOTHING.

SHE WAS RAPED IN IRAQ
AND COULDN'T,

OR WOULDN'T,
IDENTIFY HER ATTACKER.

LET ME GUESS--THE MILITARY
WILL NOT RELEASE AN ACTIVE FILE.

WELL, IF IT HAPPENED
IN-COUNTRY,

IT HAD TO BE SOMEBODY
SHE WORKED WITH.

(Cragen)
WHAT UNIT WAS SHE ASSIGNED TO?

A SQUADRON
IN THE 2ND AIRWING.

MAINTENANCE
ON LIGHT ATTACK HELICOPTERS.

OKAY, THERE'S 15 HELOS
PER SQUADRON.

SO?

COBRA GETS A THREE-MAN
MAINTENANCE TEAM

TO WORK ON ENGINES, NAVI,
WEAPON SYSTEMS, AND ORDNANCE.

PLUS, THERE'S TWO PILOTS
AND A DOOR GUNNER PER BIRD.

THAT'S OVER 75 SUSPECTS.

THEN NARROW IT DOWN.

GO BACK TO THE THERAPIST,

SEE IF THE VICTIM
GAVE HER A NAME.

(Margo)
I'M STILL IN SHOCK.

I CAN'T BELIEVE
JESSIE WAS MURDERED.

I'VE BEEN DOING
GRIEF COUNSELING ALL DAY.

WE'RE HAVING PROBLEMS

GETTING THE MARINES
TO COOPERATE.

DOES IT SURPRISE YOU?

WHAT CAN YOU TELL US
ABOUT CORPORAL CREWES?

NOTHING.

I GUESS YOU AND THE MILITARY
HAVE A LOT IN COMMON.

DEATH DOESN'T NULLIFY
CONFIDENTIALITY.

HOLD ON, MARGO.

YOU ASKED ME TO FIND HER.

I'M SORRY I GOT YOU
INVOLVED, OLIVIA.

I JUST DIDN'T KNOW
WHAT ELSE TO DO.

I'M NOT LOOKING
FOR AN APOLOGY, MARGO.

I'M ASKING YOU
FOR YOUR HELP.

THIS WOMAN WAS MURDERED,
AND THEY CUT HER BABY OUT.

NOW IS NOT THE TIME FOR YOU
TO HIDE BEHIND CONFIDENTIALITY.

I HAVE NO CHOICE.

THEY COULD YANK
MY LICENSE.

(Fin)
WHAT'S OUR NEXT MOVE?

TALK TO ONE OF THE PATIENTS
FROM JESSIE'S SUPPORT GROUP.

THE SHRINK WON'T TELL YOU
ABOUT THE RAPE.

WHAT MAKES YOU THINK SHE'S
GONNA GIVE UP HER PATIENT LIST?

I DON'T NEED IT.
I ALREADY KNOW WHO TO TALK TO.

DOES ANYONE ELSE KNOW
YOU'RE IN THERAPY?

NO.

THEN THEY WON'T
HEAR IT FROM ME.

HEY.

UGH. GO AWAY, BITCH.

SAY THAT TO ME.

ROCHELLE,
I JUST WANNA TALK.

I CAN'T DO THAT.
WE ALL DID TIME IN THE DESERT.

TALKING TO YOU WOULD BE
LIKE BREAKING RANKS.

ARMY?
HU-RAH.

RANGERS. MOGADISHU.
'93.

THAT'S BLACK HAWK DOWN.

I WAS AN MP TURRET GUNNER.

RAN A 50-CAL BELT-FED,

ESCORTING TRUCK CONVOYS
FROM BASE TO BASE.

THAT'S HOW I MET JESS.

YOU KNOW, YOUR SILENCE

IS JUST PROTECTING
HER KILLER.

IF YOU DON'T TALK TO US,

IT'S LIKE HER RAPE
DIDN'T HAPPEN.

JESS HAD NIGHT ROTATION.

SHE SAID HE CAME IN THE HANGAR,

LOCKED THE DOOR, AND RAPED HER.

TOOK HER A MONTH
TO REPORT IT.

WHY DID SHE WAIT
SO LONG?

JESSIE GOT CAUGHT
A COUPLE OF MONTHS BEFORE

HAVING SEX WITH SOMEONE
IN HER UNIT.

WAS IT CONSENSUAL?
NO SEX IN COMBAT.

YOU GET CAUGHT,
THEY'LL DING YOUR RECORD.

THAT'S WHY SHE THOUGHT
COMMAND

WOULDN'T BELIEVE
THAT SHE'D BEEN RAPED.

BUT THEN SHE TURNED UP
PREGNANT.

SHE SAID SHE HAD
ALL THE EVIDENCE SHE NEEDED

AND FILED.

DID SHE TELL YOU
WHO ATTACKED HER?

NO.

ONLY THAT HE
WAS RANKED ABOVE HER

AND SHE WAS AFRAID
OF RETRIBUTION.

WHAT KIND OF RETRIBUTION?

IF HE WAS AN OFFICER,

HIS MEN COULD JAM HER UP.

EVEN HER OWN UNIT COULD GIVE HER
THE COLD SHOULDER.

YOU HAVE NO IDEA
WHAT IT'S LIKE

TO BE RAPED BY SOME BASTARD

THAT'S SUPPOSED TO BE
WATCHING YOUR SIX!

WHAT ELSE DO YOU KNOW
ABOUT HER RAPIST?

JESSIE WENT AWOL BECAUSE
SHE KNEW HE WAS COMING HOME.

SHE WAS AFRAID
OF WHAT HE WOULD DO.

[Warner, distantly]
VICTIM'S MOTHER KEEPS CALLING.

SHE'S UPSET,
WANTS ANSWERS.

OLIVIA?

[Fin, normal voice]
LIV.

YES?
WHERE'D YOU GO?

OH, I'M SORRY.
GO AHEAD.

THE VICTIM WAS YOKED
AND STABBED FROM BEHIND.

DEATH WAS IMMEDIATE.

SO YOU'RE SAYING THE BABY
WAS TAKEN POST-MORTEM?

YES. THE AMBER ALERTS
HAVE BEEN UPDATED.

I TESTED THE CORD BLOOD
AND PLACENTA

USING DNA ANCESTRY.

YOUR RAPIST
IS CAUCASIAN.

YOU GOT THE HAIR
AND EYE COLOR TOO?

THE ANCESTRY TEST
USES GENETIC MARKERS

THAT TEND TO BE SIMILAR
IN RACIAL GROUPS.

SO CAN'T WE RUN IT AGAINST
THE MILITARY'S DNA BASE?

THAT'S USED TO IDENTIFY
REMAINS.

THEY WON'T GIVE US
ACCESS.

SO WE HAVE NOTHING TO HELP
NARROW DOWN THE SUSPECT POOL.

MAYBE CAUSE OF DEATH
WILL HELP.

THE VICTIM
WAS STABBED ONCE.

THE KNIFE WAS THRUST
UNDER THE RIBCAGE,

THROUGH THE LUNG
AND INTO THE HEART.

THE RIGHT VENTRICLE WAS SHREDDED
WITH A SHARP TWIST OF THE BLADE.

THAT'S A COMBAT MANEUVER
FOR A SILENT KILL.

THE LUNG COLLAPSES
SO THE TARGET CAN'T SCREAM.

DOESN'T THAT REQUIRE
SPECIALIZED TRAINING?

THEY DON'T OFFER ADVANCED
KNIFE FIGHTIN' SKILLS IN BASIC.

I MEASURED THE WOUND TRACT.

THE MURDER WEAPON
IS APPROXIMATELY 7 INCHES LONG

AND NON-SERRATED.

SOUNDS LIKE
A KA-BAR KNIFE TO ME.

THAT COMES
WITH THE UNIFORM.

THAT SHOULD BE ENOUGH
TO GET THE DUTY ROSTER

FOR THE NIGHT
SHE WAS RAPED.

THERE'S ONLY ONE WAY
TO FIND OUT.

(Marcus)
I ALREADY SENT THE VICTIM'S
MILITARY RECORDS

TO YOUR PRECINCT.

WHERE'S THE FILE
ON THE RAPE?

THE WITNESS STATEMENTS,
THE SUSPECT LIST,

THE INVESTIGATING OFFICERS
THAT WE CAN TALK TO?

THERE ISN'T ONE.

VICTIMS GET TWO REPORTING
OPTIONS--

JESSICA CREWES CHOSE RESTRICTED
OVER NON-RESTRICTED.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

NON-RESTRICTED
GETS THE FULL-COURT PRESS.

RESTRICTED ALLOWS THE VICTIM
TO REPORT THE ASSAULT,

GET MEDICAL
AND COUNSELING TREATMENT,

WITHOUT STARTING
A FORMAL INVESTIGATION.

OH, SO THE RAPIST
GOES FREE

WHILE YOU COVER UP
THE RAMPANT SEXUAL ASSAULT

OF ENLISTED FEMALES?

THE POLICY WAS PUT
IN PLACE

SO THAT VICTIMS WOULD AT LEAST
COME FORWARD AND GET HELP

WITHOUT FEELING
VIOLATED AGAIN.

YOU'RE HELPING RAPISTS
AVOID PRISON.

WE STILL ASK QUESTIONS,
CHECK ALIBIS,

JUST IN CASE THE VICTIM
CHANGES HER MIND.

BUT JUST LIKE YOU,
WE HAVE VERY LITTLE EVIDENCE

AND NO WITNESSES.

UNLESS THE SUSPECT
KNOWS HE GOT AWAY WITH IT,

WHAT'S TO PREVENT HIM
FROM ATTACKING THE VICTIM

TO KEEP HER QUIET?

WE TAKE EVERY PRECAUTION
TO MAKE SURE THE VICTIM

DOESN'T SERVE WITH
OR UNDER THE ACCUSED.

WELL, THEN, YOU SCREWED UP,
COMMANDER,

BECAUSE THE AUTOPSY
REPORT SHOWS

THAT JESSIE CREWES WAS BUTCHERED
BY A FELLOW MARINE.

IF THIS IS TRUE, I'M SHUTTING
DOWN YOUR INVESTIGATION.

YOU CAN'T DO THAT.

SHE WAS MURDERED HERE,
NOT IN FALLUJAH.

THE U.S. MILITARY'S SOVEREIGN,
DETECTIVE.

AND SINCE BOTH THE SUSPECT
AND THE VICTIM

BELONG TO THE ARMED FORCES,

THAT MEANS THAT YOUR WORK
IS DONE HERE.

ADA KIM GRAYLEK.
ANSWER'S NO.

GOOD. I'D LIKE TO KICK
YOUR ASS IN COURT.

THEN WHAT ARE YOU DOING
TALKING TO ME?

PUTTING ASIDE MY AMBITION

TO SOLVE THE MURDER
OF A DEAD MARINE.

YOU INTERESTED?
VERY.

THAT'S WHY I'M TAKING OVER
THE INVESTIGATION.

WHICH YOU CAN'T LEGALLY DO.

MILITARY'S SOVEREIGN,
MS. GRAYLEK.

END OF ARGUMENT.
NOT QUITE.

THE VICTIM WAS MURDERED
IN THE CITY.

SHE WAS STABBED
IN BATTERY PARK,

WHICH IS FEDERAL LAND.

NEXT.

TIME OF DEATH
CAN'T BE ESTABLISHED.

YOU SAY SHE DIED
IN THE PARK.

I SAY SHE DIED
IN THE TRUNK OF HER CAR.

EVIDENCE SUGGESTS SHE WAS
MURDERED BY ANOTHER MARINE.

WHO'S UNIDENTIFIED,
AND UNLESS HE'S ON ACTIVE DUTY,

HE'S A CIVILIAN
AND BEYOND YOUR REACH.

OKAY. WHAT DO YOU WANT?

THE DUTY ROSTER
FOR 2ND AIRWING

ON THE NIGHT
CORPORAL CREWES WAS RAPED.

NCIS ALREADY LOOKED
INTO THAT.

WE'LL LOOK AGAIN.

AND I NEED THE CURRENT
WHEREABOUTS

OF EVERY MARINE
IN THE VICTIM'S SQUADRON.

(Benson)
IT'S THE OLDEST TRICK
IN THE BOOK.

MARCUS IS STALLING
BY DROWNING US IN PAPERWORK.

WHY WOULD HE?

BECAUSE THE MILITARY
CAN'T AFFORD ANY MORE BAD PRESS,

LET ALONE LOSING
ANY MORE SOLDIERS.

MARCUS IS RUNNING INTO THE SAME
BRICK WALLS WE DO, LIV.

ANY LEADS
ON JESSIE CREWES' KILLER?

MOST OF THE UNIT'S STILL
DEPLOYED FROM TOUR EXTENSIONS.

BUT THERE WERE FIVE
MARINES ON DUTY

THE NIGHT
THAT SHE WAS RAPED

THAT MATCH THOSE
WHO SHIPPED HOME.

TWO SERGEANTS, A GUNNERY
AND A MASTER SERGEANT,

AND A LIEUTENANT RANK
ABOVE CORPORAL CREWES.

WE HAVE ANY IDEA
WHERE THEY ARE?

WELL, WE'VE GOT SERGEANT
KELLY AND MONROE

ARE AT CHERRY POINT,

THE GUNNERY SERGEANT DITKA
AND MASTER SERGEANT PRUITT

HAVE APPROVED LEAVE,

AND LIEUTENANT GARY ROSTEN'S
WHEREABOUTS ARE CLASSIFIED.

EXCUSE ME, I WAS TOLD I COULD
FIND A DETECTIVE BENSON HERE.

I'M DETECTIVE OLIVIA BENSON.

I'M JESSIE'S MOTHER.
WE TALKED ON--

OH, MY GOD--
[hyperventilating]

(Cragen)
PLEASE, THIS WAY.
COME THIS WAY.

MY OFFICE HERE...

MRS. CREWES, I'M...

I'M SO SORRY THAT YOU
HAD TO SEE THAT.

I NEEDED TO SEE IT...

TO MAKE IT REAL.

I HADN'T TALKED TO JESSIE
IN OVER A MONTH.

MPs CAME TO CLEVELAND
LOOKING FOR HER.

THEY WERE SURE
I WAS HIDING HER.

[voice breaking]
I REALLY WISH I WAS.

ARE THERE ANY LEADS
TO HER BABY?

NO.

MY GRANDSON'S DEAD, TOO,
ISN'T HE?

WE DON'T KNOW THAT.

I HAVE TO FACE FACTS.

I WORRIED ABOUT INSURGENTS
AND ROADSIDE BOMBS.

BUT WHEN...

JESSIE TOLD ME MEN STILL
OUTNUMBER WOMEN TEN TO ONE,

I...I EXPECTED
SOME HARASSMENT,

NOT RAPE.

DID SHE GIVE YOU
ANY DETAILS?

YEAH. SHE CALLED ME
RIGHT AFTER IT HAPPENED...

BUT WOULDN'T SAY
WHO ATTACKED HER.

I TOLD HER
TO FILE A COMPLAINT.

BUT JESSIE
WAS ALREADY GETTING HARASSED

AND--AND--AND--

DIDN'T WANT MORE TROUBLE.

WHY WAS SHE
HAVING PROBLEMS?

A SERGEANT LOST A STRIPE

FOR HANGING
AROUND MY DAUGHTER.

SHE SAID
HE WAS A POPULAR GUY,

AND HIS UNIT
BLAMED HER FOR IT.

DID SHE GIVE YOU
HIS NAME?

DOMINIC PRUITT.

NAVY CROSS,
MERITORIOUS SERVICE,

COMBAT ACTION.

THIS LIST
GOES ON AND ON.

(Fin)
HE ENLISTED RIGHT
OUTTA HIGH SCHOOL.

EVERY C.O. I TALKED TO
WANTED TO ADOPT THE GUY.

WELL, PRUITT'S
ABOUT TO SHIP OUT AGAIN.

YOU THINK HE RAPED ANY OTHERS?

(Fin)
THERE'S NO RECORD
OF SEXUAL ASSAULT.

THAT MEANS NOTHING.

WHEN WOMEN REFUSE TO SERVE
WITH THE MEN WHO RAPE THEM,

THEY GET COURT-MARTIALED
FOR DESERTION,

DERELICTION,
CONDUCT UNBECOMING.

I MEAN, THEIR FILES
GET RED-FLAGGED,

AND THE MEN WHO RAPED THEM
GET A WEEKEND PASS.

HE PASSED A POLYGRAPH,
OLIVIA.

ANY PSYCHO CAN DO THAT.

DO WE KNOW WHERE HE IS?

THE JAG OFF SAID
HE'D GET RIGHT BACK WITH ME,

BUT SINCE I CAN'T HOLD
MY BREATH THAT LONG,

MUNCH'S RUNNIN' HIS CREDIT.

TURNS OUT HE'S RIGHT HERE
IN THE CITY.

HIS CREDIT CARD
HAS HIM REGISTERED

AT A HOTEL IN MIDTOWN.

WHOA, WHOA.

WE SHOULD PROBABLY FIGURE
THE BEST WAY TO TALK TO PRUITT.

PUT HIM IN THE BOX
AND SWEAT HIM.

HE'S NOT LIKE A NORMAL HUMP
WE PICK UP OFF THE STREET.

PRUITT'S NOT JUST GONNA START
SPILLIN' HIS GUTS.

THEY TRAIN HIM NOT TO.

LOOK, HE'S GONNA COOPERATE,
OR HE'S GONNA SIT IN A CELL.

SOUNDS LIKE YOU
ALREADY DECIDED HE'S GUILTY.

'CAUSE THAT'S HOW IT LOOKS.

LOOK, I KNOW
THAT THIS IS DIFFICULT.

I GET DEFENSIVE TOO
EVERY TIME A COP GOES BAD.

IT'S FUNNY.

I JUST NEVER HEARD YOU
PUSH THAT HARD

FOR ONE P.P.
TO CLEAN HOUSE.

[crashing sound]

THIS WAY.

[crashing, clattering]

[beep]
READY?

NYPD! HOLD IT RIGHT THERE!

FREEZE!
AAH!

I SAID BREAK IT UP!

[glass shatters]
I SAID STOP! STOP!

FREEZE! BACK OFF!
OLIVIA, NO!

[hard breathing echoes]

[cocks pistol]

OLIVIA, ARE YOU OKAY?

CAN YOU HEAR ME?

EASY, EASY.

EASY.

I'M SORRY.

(woman)
WHAT THE HELL
IS GOING ON HERE?

STAY RIGHT THERE,
MA'AM.

THAT'S MY HUSBAND, GARY.
HE'S HURT.

HE NEEDS A DOCTOR!
I SAID DON'T MOVE!

[whispering]
I'M SORRY.

TAKE YOUR TIME.

FEEL YOUR FEET
ON THE GROUND.
YEAH.

BREATHE.
[mumbles]

[inhales, exhales]

COME ON, GET UP.
GET UP.

THAT'S NOT GONNA
HAPPEN.

I CAN'T LET YOU
QUESTION THE SUSPECT.

I'M FINE, FIN.

YOU HELD YOUR GUN
TO THE BACK OF A MAN'S HEAD.

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA
HOW MUCH TROUBLE YOU'RE IN?

YOU REPORTED ME?

NO, I'M TALKING ABOUT YOU
GETTING YOUR HEAD TOGETHER.

I AM WORKING ON IT.
ARE YOU?

SEEMS LIKE YOU EVEN HAVE ISSUES
WITH YOUR SHRINK.

YOU NEED TO TALK
TO SOMEONE.

THE ONLY PERSON THAT
I'M INTERESTED IN TALKING TO

IS THE MAN THAT RAPED
AND KILLED JESSICA CREWES.

WE NEED TO FIND THAT BABY.

IF I LET YOU DO THIS,
I'M SITTIN' IN.

LOOK, I'M OKAY!

NO, NO, NO.
IT'S EITHER ME OR IT'S CRAGEN.

YOU CHOOSE.

YOU'RE JERKING ME AROUND.

I HAVE BEEN HERE
FOR 45 MINUTES.

I WANT TO SEE
MY HUSBAND!

WHY CAN'T I SEE HIM?

WHERE IS HE?

WHY CAN'T I SEE HIM?

I WANT MY HUSBAND!
WHERE THE HELL IS HE?

MRS. ROSTEN, PLEASE.
GARY!

GARY!
YOU NEED TO RELAX,
MRS. ROSTEN.

I WILL ARREST YOU
IF I HAVE TO.

WHY? WE HAVEN'T DONE
ANYTHING WRONG,

AND YOU'RE TREATING HIM
LIKE A CRIMINAL!

IT WAS PRUITT'S KNIFE.

MY HUSBAND
WAS JUST DEFENDING HIMSELF.

THAT'S WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE.
WE JUST WANT A STATEMENT.

WHERE IS GARY?

THIS WAY.

DO YOU KNOW WHY PRUITT
ATTACKED YOUR HUSBAND?

NO.

WHAT HAPPENS
TO ENLISTED MEN

WHO ASSAULT
THEIR SUPERIOR OFFICERS?

A GENERAL COURT-MARTIAL.

THAT SOUNDS
LIKE A PRETTY BIG RISK

FOR A LIFER LIKE PRUITT
TO TAKE.

IT HAPPENS.
CAN WE GO NOW?

YOU SEEM PRETTY RATTLED.

MY HUSBAND WAS ATTACKED,

AND YOUR COPS PULLED GUNS.

HOW SHOULD I FEEL?

I'D THINK
YOU'D BE USED TO IT

SINCE YOUR HUSBAND'S WORTH
IS MEASURED BY HIS KILLS.

I'M NOT A MARINE.

(Benson)
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME
YOU TALKED TO JESSICA CREWES?

I TRIED CALLING HER
FROM THE HOTEL

WHEN I GOT INTO TOWN,
BUT NO JOY.

NO, I ASKED YOU WHEN.

A WEEK AGO.

AND YOU CALLED HER
FROM THE LOBBY.
YES, MA'AM.

AND WHY'S THAT?
YOU DON'T HAVE A CELL PHONE?

NOT ON LEAVE.
NOT WHEN I DON'T WANNA BE FOUND.

WHY WERE YOU
TRYING TO REACH HER?

I JUST WANTED
TO MAKE SURE SHE WAS OKAY.

ISN'T THAT CONSIDERED
FRATERNIZING?
YES, MA'AM.

BUT YOU DID IT ANYWAY.

DID YOU KNOW WHERE
SHE LIVED?

NO.

WHEN IS THE LAST TIME
YOU SAW HER?

ABOUT FIVE MONTHS AGO.

SHE TOOK A TRANSPORT
FROM KUWAIT.

DEFINE YOUR RELATIONSHIP
WITH CORPORAL CREWES.

MY RELATIONSHIP?

SHE'S A FELLOW MARINE
AND A FRIEND.

A FRIEND?

SHE HAD TO BE
MORE THAN A FRIEND

FOR YOU TO DISOBEY
A DIRECT ORDER, SERGEANT.

IT'S MASTER SERGEANT,
MA'AM.

SO RANK IS IMPORTANT TO YOU.
YOU'RE DAMN RIGHT.
I EARNED IT.

SO YOU MUST HAVE BEEN
PRETTY PISSED

WHEN YOU GOT DEMOTED
OVER A WOMAN

THAT WAS FOUR RANKS
BELOW YOU.

JESSICA'S WELFARE
WAS MORE IMPORTANT.

SHE NEEDED MY HELP.

SHE WENT AWOL
AND NEEDED TO REPORT IN.

WELL, IF YOU
WERE GONNA CONVINCE HER,

HOW DID YOU EVEN KNOW
WHERE SHE WAS?

SHE TOLD ME.

I THOUGHT YOU JUST SAID
THAT YOU COULDN'T REACH HER.

I HAD HER COORDINATES
BEFORE I GOT HERE.

SO YOU TRACKED HER
LIKE PREY...

BECAUSE YOU HAD TO...

BECAUSE SHE WAS RAPED
AND SHE COULD PROVE IT.

SHE WAS ABSENT WITHOUT LEAVE
AND PREGNANT.

SHE NEEDED TO GO BACK
TO CHERRY POINT,

GET SQUARED AWAY,
GET AN HONORABLE DISCHARGE.

TRY GETTING A JOB
WITHOUT ONE.

AND YOU WERE GONNA HELP HER?
I LOOKED OUT FOR HER!

WHETHER SHE LIKED IT
OR NOT.

YOU SEE THAT?

THAT'S ADRENALINE.

YOU ALMOST KILLED A MAN.

THAT BROAD'S GOT PTSD.

I'D KNOW THE GLASSY-EYED
EXPRESSION ANYWHERE.

WHAT IS SHE DOING
CARRYING A GUN?

LOOK...I'M NOT
PRESSING CHARGES, OKAY?

SO DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.

I DON'T WANNA GET PRUITT
IN ANY MORE TROUBLE.

YOU THINK I GIVE
A RAT'S ASS

ABOUT YOU FILING
A COMPLAINT?

ISN'T THAT YOUR JOB?

YOU'RE A COMBAT PILOT.

YOU'RE NO VICTIM.
YOU CAN TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF.

THE QUESTION
I WANNA KNOW IS

WHY WAS PRUITT
TRYING TO KILL YOU?

IT WAS A MISUNDERSTANDING.

NOBODY COMES AT SOMEBODY
LIKE THAT

OVER A DISAGREEMENT.

THE JACKHOLE FOUND OUT

THAT I WAS THE ONE
WHO TURNED HIM INTO COMMAND

OVER JESSICA CREWES.

THEY HAD A RELATIONSHIP?

IT WAS MORE LIKE A THING.

PRUITT'S ASSIGNED TO AIRWING
FOR GROUND SUPPORT

SO WE DON'T GET SHOT DOWN
BY RPGs.

OH, SO HE LIVED OUTSIDE THE WIRE
IN THE DESERT.

FOR WEEKS AT A TIME.

BUT THAT'S WHAT BRAWN
IS FOR.

OFF-DUTY...

HE WAS ALL OVER HER.

DID YOU KNOW JESSIE CREWES
REPORTED BEING RAPED?

NO.

BUT I'M NOT SURPRISED.

WHY IS THAT?

SHE HAD A REPUTATION.

A LOT OF WOMEN
IN THE CORPS DO.

WELL, THEY'RE EITHER
BITCHES OR SLUTS.

WHICH ONE WAS JESSIE?
NEITHER.

BUT TO SURVIVE,
SHE HAD TO BE TOUGH.

SHE HAD TO BE BETTER.
SAYS WHO?

THOSE ARE THE RULES
WHEN YOU'RE FIRST.

LOOK, THESE WOMEN
ARE THE FIRST IN COMBAT.

THEY'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE,
BUT THEY ARE.

HOW CAN A MAN TRUST YOU
TO WATCH HIS BACK

UNTIL YOU PROVE
THAT YOU CAN?

IT'S NOT FAIR.
IT'S JUST TRUE.

NOW, JESS,
SHE DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THAT.

SHE WANTED IT EASY.

SO YOU HAD TO TEACH HER
A LESSON,

TOUGHEN HER UP
BY RAPING HER.

NO. I TOLD HER
NOT TO ASK FOR FAVORS.

SOME GUYS WOULD TAKE IT WRONG
AND GIVE HER TROUBLE.

AH, BLAME THE VICTIM.
THAT'S WHAT RAPISTS DO.

LOOK, I DID NOT RAPE
CORPORAL CREWES.

I DID NOT HAVE SEX
WITH HER EITHER--IT'S FORBIDDEN.

WELL, WE BOTH KNOW THAT YOU ONLY
OBEY ORDERS THAT YOU WANT TO.

BECAUSE THERE'S NOBODY THERE
TO STOP YOU.

THERE'S NOBODY THERE
TO TELL YOU NO.

DID SHE SAY THAT? HUH?

DID SHE SAY
THAT I RAPED HER?

SHE WAS TOO AFRAID.
YOU MADE SURE OF THAT.

SHE WAS HARASSED
WHEN YOU GOT DEMOTED.

NOW, WHAT WOULD
YOUR LITTLE BUDDIES HAVE DONE

IF SHE NAMED YOU
OUTRIGHT?

I'M THINKING
THAT EVEN YOUR FELLOW MARINES

WOULDN'T HAVE GONE
THIS FAR.

THIS WAS SOMETHING
THAT YOU HAD TO TAKE CARE OF

ALL BY YOURSELF.

AND THAT IS WHY
YOU STALKED HER...

YOU STABBED HER...

AND YOU STUFFED HER
INTO THE TRUNK OF HER OWN CAR.

WELL, IF THAT'S TRUE...

YOU SHOULD HAVE PULLED THAT
TRIGGER WHEN YOU HAD THE CHANCE.

AND IF I WAS LIKE YOU...

I WOULD HAVE.

GUY'S A SOCIOPATH.

HE DIDN'T EVEN BLINK
AT THE CRIME SCENE PHOTOS.

HE'S SCRAPED BODY PARTS
OFF THE DESERT FLOOR.

YOU EXPECT HIM TO FALL APART
OVER A BODY IN A TRUNK?

WHY CAN'T YOU JUST ADMIT
THAT FOUR TOURS IN IRAQ

HAS TURNED HIM
INTO A COLD-BLOODED KILLER?

OBVIOUSLY IT DOESN'T MATTER
WHAT I THINK,

BUT YOU DON'T HAVE ENOUGH
TO HOLD HIM.

WHAT ABOUT THE ATTACK
ON GARY ROSTEN?

THE LIEUTENANT DECLINED
TO PRESS CHARGES.

I THINK HE WANTS PRUITT
BACK AT HIS POST.

SO THEY'RE TAKING RECRUITS
WITH CRIMINAL RECORDS NOW.

WHAT'S ONE MORE
MURDERING BASTARD WITH A GUN?

(Munch)
FORENSICS CAME BACK
ON PRUITT'S KA-BAR.

DIDN'T FIND ANY BLOOD
MATCHING JESSIE CREWES.

SO? MAYBE HE CLEANED IT.

WELL, THEY DID SAY
THE BLADE IS CONSISTENT

WITH HER WOUND TRACT.

THAT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH

SINCE EVERYONE
IS ISSUED ONE AT INDUCTION.

LOOK, THE EVIDENCE
IS CIRCUMSTANTIAL,

BUT IT'S STRONG.

NOT AGAINST
HIS MILITARY RECORD.

WHAT DO YOU NEED?

PHYSICAL EVIDENCE
LINKING PRUITT

TO JESSIE'S CAR
OR APARTMENT.

HOW 'BOUT A WITNESS?

THE VICTIM'S LANDLORD?

WHY DIDN'T YOU CHECK
WITH HIM BEFORE NOW?

BECAUSE I SCREWED UP,

AND IT WILL NOT
HAPPEN AGAIN.

(Benson)
ARE YOU SURE?

YEAH, YEAH, YEAH,
THAT'S HIM.

THAT'S THE GUY
I SAW ARGUING WITH JESSIE.

OKAY, I'M GONNA NEED
YOUR SIGNATURE

RIGHT NEXT TO THAT PHOTO.

GREAT. THANK YOU.

NOT YOUR LUCKY DAY,
SERGEANT.

YOU'RE MAKING A MISTAKE.
YOU LIED TO ME.

YOU WERE SEEN
AT JESSIE'S APARTMENT.

YOU WERE HEARD
ARGUING WITH HER.

SHE HAD TO GO
BACK TO BASE.

IT WAS HER ONLY WAY OUT
AND THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

YOU LIED TO ME THEN,
AND YOU'RE LYING TO ME NOW.

OPEN YOUR MOUTH.

I SAID OPEN YOUR MOUTH,

OR I'M GONNA HAVE YOU RESTRAINED
AND HAVE YOUR BLOOD DRAWN.

YOU DECIDE.

THANKS FOR THE CALL.

ONLY BECAUSE
I HAD TO, COMMANDER.

IT'S THE LAW.

(Benson)
OH, NO, HOLD IT.

YOU DON'T GET HIM
TILL YOU SIGN FOR IT.

THANKS
FOR YOUR HARD WORK.

ENJOY IT WHILE IT LASTS.

YOU WON'T HAVE CUSTODY
FOR LONG.

YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS.

MILITARY JUSTICE
IS SWIFT AND SURE.

AS A PROSECUTOR,
YOU SHOULD APPRECIATE THAT.

I HAVE A MORAL OBJECTION
TO MURDER.

I HAVEN'T DECIDED TO SEEK
THE DEATH PENALTY.

OF COURSE YOU HAVE.

THE HEINOUS NATURE
OF THIS CRIME

AND THE PRESS EXPOSURE ALONE
GUARANTEE YOU WANNA KILL HIM.

EXECUTION ISN'T MURDER
WHEN IT'S SANCTIONED BY LAW.

NOT IN NEW YORK.

THERE'S A COURT-ORDERED
MORATORIUM ON THE DEATH PENALTY,

AND I INTEND TO STOP YOU.

LAST TIME I CHECKED,

THE JUDGE ADVOCATE HAD
JURISDICTION OVER ITS MEMBERS.

NOT WHILE HINDERING OUR ABILITY
TO EXERCISE LAW AND ORDER.

POSSE COMITATUS,
MS. GRAYLEK?

A WOMAN IS DEAD,
MURDERED IN THE CITY,

HER UNBORN CHILD
FORCIBLY REMOVED FROM HER BODY.

AND WHAT JUSTICE
CAN YOU OFFER THE BABY?

YOU HAVE NO RECOURSE
OVER VICTIMS KILLED IN UTERO.

WE DO.

HAVE WE LOCATED
THE INFANT'S BODY?

(Graylek)
NO, YOUR HONOR.

AND I DON'T NEED IT
TO PROVE DEATH.

THE UNIFORM CODE ALLOWS
FOR JOINT JURISDICTION.

THE MILITARY HAS GIVEN US
NO RELIEF IN THIS CASE.

TELL YOU WHAT--YOU CAN HAVE
PRUITT WHEN WE'RE DONE.

DOUBLE JEOPARDY
DOESN'T APPLY.

BUT I DOUBT
THAT WE'D WASTE TIME AND MONEY

TRYING HIM AGAIN.

THEY WON'T COURT-MARTIAL
A SUSPECT

IF HE'S ALREADY BEEN PROSECUTED
BY THE STATE.

THEY NEED EVERY PENNY
FOR GUNS AND AMMO.

PRUITT
IS A UNITED STATES MARINE

BOUND BY MILITARY CODE,

IN OR OUT OF UNIFORM,
WHEREVER HE MAY BE.

SOVEREIGNTY IS ABSOLUTE,
YOUR HONOR.

[sighs]

I'M AFRAID I HAVE TO AGREE
WITH THE COMMANDER.

I'LL NEED BENSON
TO GIVE EVIDENCE

AT PRUITT'S ARTICLE 32
HEARING.

OH, AND, UH,

SHE'LL BE SURROUNDED
BY UNIFORMS.

TELL HER TO TAKE A PILL.

(Benson)
LIKE A LOT OF VICTIMS,

CORPORAL CREWES DIDN'T
IMMEDIATELY REPORT HER RAPE.

WHY DON'T VICTIMS
REPORT SEXUAL ASSAULT?

BECAUSE THEY OFTEN BLAME
THEMSELVES.

SHAME, FEAR.

MANY TIMES THEY
FEEL VIOLATED AGAIN

BY THE MEDICAL EXAM,
BY HAVING TO TELL THEIR STORY

OVER AND OVER
TO LAW ENFORCEMENT.

HOW LONG DID IT TAKE
THE VICTIM TO FILE A COMPLAINT?

30 DAYS.

AFTER SUCH
A PROLONGED PERIOD,

WAS THERE ANY EVIDENCE
LEFT?

THE VICTIM'S PREGNANCY.

SHE DECIDED TO HAVE
HER RAPIST'S BABY.

NOTHING FURTHER.

DETECTIVE BENSON,
DO YOU LIKE THE MILITARY?

NO.

IS IT THE UNIFORMS,
THE WAR?

OR IS IT THE MEN AND WOMEN
WHO BLEED FOR THIS COUNTRY

WHO OFFEND YOU?

I SUPPORT THE TROOPS
THAT FIGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY.

ARE YOU AWARE, DETECTIVE--
BUT MY PROBLEM...

IS WITH ANY INSTITUTION

THAT REFUSES TO ADDRESS
RAMPANT SEXUAL TRAUMA.

THANK YOU, DETECTIVE.

ARE YOU AWARE
THE U. S. CONVICTION RATE

FOR SEXUAL ASSAULT
IS 13%?

I DON'T KNOW
WHAT THAT HAS TO DO WITH THIS.

WHILE THE MILITARY'S
CONVICTION RATE STANDS AT 10.

ISN'T IT TRUE YOU WENT AFTER
A DECORATED MARINE

TO GET PRESS
FOR YOUR CRUSADE?

NO.

A CRUSADE, I MIGHT ADD,
THAT HAS NO FOUNDATION.

OBJECTION, YOUR HONOR.

MOVE ON,
LIEUTENANT REED.

DID YOU KNOW
THAT CORPORAL CREWES

WAS CITED FOR HAVING SEX
WITH A FELLOW MARINE?

YES. 30 DAYS PRIOR
TO HER RAPE.

ISN'T IT POSSIBLE

THAT SHE MIGHT HAVE HAD
CONSENSUAL SEX AGAIN?

I DON'T KNOW.
YOU DON'T KNOW
THAT THAT'S POSSIBLE,

OR YOU DIDN'T ASK IF SHE WAS
STILL SCREWING AGAINST CODE?

LIEUTENANT,

I'LL GIVE YOU EVERY LATITUDE,
BUT WATCH IT.

YES, SIR.

ISN'T IT POSSIBLE
SHE CRIED RAPE

TO COVER UP A SUDDEN PREGNANCY
IN A COMBAT ZONE

AS A RESULT OF AN ILLICIT
SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP?

NO. NOT WHEN THE CONSEQUENCES
OF REPORTING A RAPE ARE SO HIGH.

ESPECIALLY IN THE MILITARY.

HOW'D IT GO?

BETTER THAN I THOUGHT.

PRUITT'S ATTORNEY
DIDN'T MENTION THE FACT

THAT I HELD A GUN
TO HIS CLIENT'S HEAD.

IT HAD NOTHING TO DO
WITH JESSIE'S MURDER.

DEFENSE ATTORNEYS
FIND EVERY WEAKNESS.

THAT'S WHAT THEY DO.

I GET YOU
NOT WANTING PEOPLE TO KNOW

THAT YOU'RE IN THERAPY.

AH, WELL, I MAY NOT
HAVE A CHOICE.

AS LONG AS YOU WORK AT IT,
THE FLASHBACKS WILL GO AWAY.

DID FOR ME.

THERE'S A PROBLEM.

FORENSICS CAME BACK
ON THE CORD BLOOD.

PRUITT'S DNA DIDN'T MATCH.

TEST IT AGAIN.

THEY ALREADY DID--TWICE.

I WAS WRONG.

IF PRUITT'S NOT OUR GUY...

WHO IS?

STILL HAVE FOUR SUSPECTS

WHO ALL WORKED IN CLOSE QUARTERS
WITH THE VICTIM.

IT HAD TO BE SOMEBODY
THAT SHE WORKED WITH EVERY DAY

WHO WATCHED HER,
WHO THOUGHT ABOUT HER,

WHO ENJOYED
ORDERING HER AROUND...

LIKE A PILOT.

WHO WAS ATTACKED BY
AN ANGRY MARINE WITH A KA-BAR.

YOU CAN'T KEEP ME
HERE.

WE HAVE QUESTIONS
ABOUT YOUR MOVEMENTS

THE NIGHT JESSICA CREWES
WAS MURDERED.

SO ASK.

I DIDN'T SAY
WE WANTED TO ASK YOU.

YOUR HUSBAND RAPED
AND MURDERED JESSICA CREWES...

AND YOU HELPED HIM.

THAT'S RIDICULOUS.

YOU LIKE BEING MARRIED
TO A PILOT.

YOU LOVE THE PRESTIGE.

AND YOU
WEREN'T GONNA LET JESSICA

RUIN EVERYTHING
THAT YOU BUILT.

YOU'RE CRAZY.

I-I'M NOT LISTENING TO THIS,
AND YOU CAN'T KEEP ME HERE.

YOUR HUSBAND'S DNA
MATCHES THE BABY'S BLOOD.

THAT'S A LIE.
THERE IS NO BABY.

THEN HOW COME I HAVE A PIECE
OF THE UMBILICAL CORD

THAT THE BASTARD
LEFT BEHIND?

YOU COULD BE CHARGED
WITH AIDING AND ABETTING.

AND TRUST ME...

NO JUDGE
IS GONNA BE LENIENT.

YOU CAN'T TALK TO MY WIFE
WITHOUT AN ATTORNEY PRESENT.

WE HAVE RIGHTS.

YOU BELONG TO UNCLE SAM.
YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS.

SHE CAN'T TELL YOU ANYTHING
THAT YOU CAN USE, OKAY?

IT'S BETWEEN A HUSBAND AND WIFE.
IT'S PRIVILEGED.

THERE'S NOTHING PRIVILEGED
ABOUT HER ACTIONS.

IF SHE'S GUILTY,

SHE'LL FLIP FOR A DEAL.

(Benson)
WELL, I COULD ASK THE D.A.
FOR LENIENCY,

BUT I'M TELLING YOU
RIGHT NOW,

IF I WALK OUT THAT DOOR,

I PROMISE YOU
I WILL NEVER COME BACK.

I DIDN'T KNOW
HE WAS GONNA KILL HER.

TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED,
MARLENE.

GARY SAID JESSIE
WAS THE CAMP SLUT...

AND IN A MOMENT
OF WEAKNESS,

HE MADE A MISTAKE.

A RAPE ACCUSATION
WOULD HAVE RUINED MY FAMILY.

I WANTED TO CONFRONT HER.

BUT SHE'D
ALREADY GONE AWOL,

SO YOU DIDN'T HAVE
THE CHANCE.

HOW DID YOU GET
JESSIE'S CELL PHONE NUMBER?

I HAD A FRIEND WHO WORKED
IN BASE PERSONNEL.

AND YOU USED
A DISPOSABLE PHONE.

GARY GAVE IT TO ME.

WHAT DID YOU SAY TO JESSIE
TO MAKE HER TRUST YOU?

IF MY HUSBAND WAS A RAPIST,

I HAD A RIGHT TO KNOW...

THAT I NEEDED
TO SHIELD MY KIDS.

I SAID I HAD TO HEAR
THE DETAILS FACE-TO-FACE.

AND SHE TOLD YOU
WHERE SHE WAS.

SHE FELT SORRY FOR ME.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?

WHAT DID YOUR HUSBAND DO
WITH THE BABY?

HE SAID HE THREW THE BODY
IN THE...HUDSON.

[sobbing]

(Benson)
YOU WANTED TO SEE ME?

THE HUDSON CURRENTS
RUN TOWARD NEW JERSEY,

BUT WE DRAGGED THE RIVER
ON BOTH SIDES TO BE SURE.

YOU FOUND THE BABY.

HE NEVER HAD A CHANCE,
DID HE?

WARNER SAID HE WAS PROBABLY
DEAD BEFORE HE HIT THE WATER.

SHE DIDN'T FIND
ANY FLUID IN HIS LUNGS.

WELL, THAT'S COMFORTING.
I'LL LET THE GRANDMOTHER KNOW.

MAYBE SHE CAN STITCH IT
ON A PILLOW.
OLIVIA.

I WANT YOU TO TAKE
SOME PERSONAL TIME OFF.

WHY?

YOU KNOW WHY.

JUST DO IT.

IS THAT AN ORDER,
CAPTAIN?

NO.

IF IT WAS, I'D HAVE TO MAKE
A NOTATION IN YOUR JACKET.

HOW MUCH TIME
SHOULD I TAKE OFF?

AS MUCH AS YOU NEED.

COMMANDER MARCUS SAID
YOU WANTED TO SEE ME, MA'AM.

IT'S OLIVIA, AND...

I WANTED TO APOLOGIZE.

FOR WHAT?

YOU DID YOUR JOB
AND GOT JUSTICE FOR JESSIE.

I DON'T GET YOU
AT ALL.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW
WHAT TO SAY TO YOU.

I KNEW MY DNA
WOULDN'T MATCH.

I TOLD YOU,
I DIDN'T HAVE SEX WITH HER.

YOU JUST LOOKED OUT
FOR HER.

A MARINE IN MY UNIT

GOT ATTACKED
BY HER SUPERIOR OFFICER.

SHE WAS IN TROUBLE
AND NEEDED HELP.

THAT'S MY JOB.

WHY DIDN'T YOU GO
TO YOUR C.O.?

ACCUSING AN OFFICER
WITHOUT PROOF

WILL LAND YOU
IN THE BRIG.

AND ROSTEN HAD ALREADY
TURNED YOU IN FOR FRATERNIZING.

THAT'S WHY I
WENT AFTER HIM.

EITHER HE CONFESSED...

OR HE WOULDN'T BE COMING BACK
FROM HIS NEXT DEPLOYMENT.

WOULD YOU
HAVE KILLED HIM?

WOULD YOU HAVE SHOT ME?

I CAN'T ANSWER THAT.

AND YOU DESERVE
TO KNOW WHY.

I WAS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED
SIX MONTHS AGO.

QUIT KICKING YOURSELF.

WELL...

THAT'S EASY TO SAY
AND HARD TO DO.

TAKES PRACTICE.

YOU'LL GET THERE.

[elevator bell dings]

I GOTTA CATCH MY TRAIN.

YEAH.

MASTER SERGEANT.

DOMINIC.

BE CAREFUL.

I'M A MARINE.

THAT'S WHAT WE DO.
