Benson and Stabler are forced to deal with the abrasive militant leader of a lesbian rights group as they search for a rapist and killer who may be targeting members of the lesbian community.

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.

[both laughing]

- HOLD ON, STEVE.
LET'S TAKE A PICTURE.

- ACTUALLY, IT'S SCOTT.

- SAY CHEESE.



AAH!
HE STOLE MY PHONE!

- POLICE! FREEZE!

- GET HIM, PLEASE!
GET MY PHONE BACK!

- POLICE! STOP!

STOP! POLICE!

COME OUT!

- DON'T SHOOT ME!

HEY, DON'T SHOOT ME.

I TOOK THE PHONE...

BUT I DIDN'T DO THAT.

- HOLY GOD.

CENTRAL, TWO-ADAM...

I NEED A BUS
AT 1022 WEST 4-8.

I HAVE A FEMALE ASSAULT VICTIM--
HEAVY BLEEDER, CENTRAL.



- ROGER, TWO-ADAM.
IS SHE LIKELY?

- I THINK
SHE'S ALREADY DEAD.

AAH.
- [gasping]

- HEY, MISS, MISS, YOU HANG
IN THERE, YOU HEAR ME?

HELP IS ON THE WAY.

CAN YOU TELL ME
WHO DID THIS TO YOU?

[panting]
MI--MI--MITCH.

- MI--MITCH.

- "MITCH"?
THAT'S ALL SHE SAID?

- SHE COULD BARELY SAY THAT.

- CAN YOU DESCRIBE HER?

- WHITE FEMALE, MID-20s.

FOUND HER IN AN EMPTY RESTAURANT
ON WEST 48TH.

- INJURIES?

- UH, IT WAS HARD TO TELL
WITH ALL THE BLOOD--

SLASH ON HER NECK,
BRUISING ON HER THIGHS.

- DID YOU FIND A PURSE, I.D.?
- NEITHER.

UH, PANTIES GONE TOO.

- THIS MITCH SON OF A BITCH

STOLE JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING
HE COULD FROM HER.

- DOC, CAN WE SPEAK
WITH HER?

- NOT ANYMORE.

SHE'S DEAD.

- SO OUR JANE DOE
IS YANKED OFF THE STREET,

RAPED, ROBBED,
AND MURDERED.

- I'M SURPRISED SHE MADE IT
TO THE E.R.

LOOKS LIKE
SHE BLED OUT RIGHT THERE.

- SEE ANYTHING HE COULD HAVE
USED TO SLASH HER NECK?

- NOT YET.

HOLD ON.

- PANTIES.

- YEP.

- RIPPED THEM RIGHT OFF HER.

- WHOEVER THIS MITCH WAS,
HE HAD SOME RAGE.

- WELL, MAYBE
IT DIDN'T BEGIN THAT WAY.

SEE ALL THESE CANDLES,
EMPTY BOTTLES OF BEER?

- THINK IT STARTED
AS A CHEAP DATE?

- YEAH, THINGS WENT BAD
WHEN SHE SAID NO.

ALL RIGHT,
BAG AND PRINT EVERYTHING.

TEST AND TYPE
THE BLOOD, PLEASE.

- ELLIOT.

LOOKS LIKE MITCH
AND OUR JANE DOE

HAD SOME COMPANY.

- "VAMPYRE SACRIFICE."

DIDN'T TAKE ME LONG
TO FIND IT.

- OUR RAPIST
HAS A WEBSITE?

- PLUS A BUNCH OF SONGS
YOU CAN DOWNLOAD.

- IT'S A HEAVY METAL BAND.
- DEATH METAL, MORE LIKE.

THINK BLACK SABBATH
OR JUDAS PRIEST,

ONLY SICKER
AND MORE VIOLENT.

AND IT'S NOT A BAND.
IT'S JUST ONE GUY--

TREY GREENWAY.

THIS MORNING HE UPLOADED
HIS NEW MUSIC VIDEO--

[heavy metal music]
BRUTALIZED AND LEFT TO DIE.

- OKAY, SO WHEN
DOES THE MUSIC START?

- THERE'S THE PENTAGRAM
AND THE CANDLES.

IT'S DEFINITELY
OUR EMPTY BUILDING.

- LYRICS SOUND
JUST LIKE YOUR CRIME.

- "SNATCHED OFF THE STREET,

"YANKED OFF MY FEET,

"LOVING YOUR SCREAMS,

"AS MY FANGS
SLICE YOUR MEAT.

"THE KILL IS THE THRILL,

"DEATH IS MY SKILL,

DRAINING EACH VICTIM
TILL I GET MY FILL."

[mouse clicks, music stops]
- AND IT JUST GETS WORSE.

- DOES OUR VICTIM
MAKE AN APPEARANCE?

- NO, BUT MAYBE SHE WAS
HIS OPENING ACT

OR A WAY OF COOLING DOWN
AFTER HE GOT DONE.

- WELL, I DON'T KNOW.

SEE, THIS IS
ALL ABOUT SHOCK VALUE,

PISSING PARENTS OFF.

A GUY LIKE THIS,
HE WANTS TO BE FAMOUS,

NOT KILL PEOPLE.

- TREY WAS NO CHOIRBOY--

CONVICTION FOR ASSAULT
AND ANOTHER ONE FOR BURGLARY.

- AND YOU DON'T HAVE
MUCH ELSE.

WARNER'S AUTOPSY CONFIRMS
THE RAPE, BUT THAT'S IT.

NO FLUIDS OR FIBERS.

NO HITS IN CODIS
OR MISSING PERSONS.

FIN, PUT UP A FACEUNION PAGE
FOR JANE DOE.

HOPEFULLY, IT GOES VIRAL,

AND SOMEBODY
RECOGNIZES HER.

- EL AND I WILL TRACK DOWN
COUNT CHOCULA.

- N.Y.P.D.!

TREY GREENWAY,
SHOW YOURSELF!

- THIS GUY'S SINGLE-HANDEDLY
KEEPING PIER ONE IN BUSINESS.

- TREY!

[woman screaming]

- YOU! YOU!

YOU! GET AWAY FROM HER!
BACK OFF!

- WAIT. A VAMPIRE
CANNOT ENTER A ROOM

UNLESS HE'S INVITED.

- HERE'S YOUR INVITATION.

- SOMEONE OF MY STATURE

DESERVES BETTER TREATMENT
THAN THIS, HUMAN.

- SAVE YOURSELF
SOME GRIEF.

ALL RIGHT?
LET'S DROP THE ACT.

- ACT?

- OKAY, YOU'RE A VAMPIRE?

WOULD YOU BE ABLE
TO SEE YOUR REFLECTION?

- I SEE NO REFLECTION.

- YOU'RE ABOUT TO SEE
THE INSIDE OF A JAIL CELL

FOR ATTACKING THAT GIRL.

- TREY WASN'T ATTACKING ME.

- MINA, HE SUNK HIS TEETH
INTO YOUR NECK.

YOU WERE SCREAMING.

- IN ECSTASY.

HE'S HELPING ME TRANSITION
FROM PSI TO SANG.

- FROM WHAT TO WHAT?

- I'M A PSI.

I FEED ON THE PSYCHIC ENERGY
OF OTHERS.

TREY HAS REACHED
THE LEVEL OF SANG VAMPIRE.

- AS IN SANGUINE?

HE FEEDS ON BLOOD.

- HE IS MY MASTER
OF THE NIGHT,

AND I AM
HIS WILLING VICTIM.

- LIKE HER?

- LOOKS LIKE YOU WENT TOO FAR
WITH THIS ONE.

- NEVER SEEN HER.

- WELL, SHE WAS BLED DRY
LAST NIGHT

IN THE SAME BUILDING WHERE
YOU WERE SHOOTING THAT VIDEO.

- I WOULDN'T EXPECT
A WEAK-MINDED DRONE LIKE YOU

TO BELIEVE ME.

- SO WHY DON'T YOU
HELP ME OUT THERE, TREY?

I MEAN, YOU'RE THE ONE
WHO, UH,

PAINTS PENTAGRAMS
IN HUMAN BLOOD.

YOU WRITE LYRICS
LIKE, UH,

"THE...THRILL IS THE KILL."

- "THE KILL
IS THE THRILL,

DEATH IS MY SKILL."

MY MUSIC IS ART.

MY LIFE IS ART.

- WELL, YOUR LIFE
IS GONNA BE PRISON,

AND IT AIN'T GONNA BE BLOOD

THAT YOU'RE SUCKING
IN SING SING.

- [scoffs]

IF YOU MUST KNOW, HUMAN,

I WAS NOWHERE NEAR
THAT BUILDING LAST NIGHT.

I WAS UP IN THE BRONX,
AUDITIONING A BACKUP BAND

FOR VAMPYRE SACRIFICE'S
UPCOMING TOUR.

WE SHREDDED ALL NIGHT.

- AND HOW ABOUT THE BLOOD
FOR THE PENTAGRAM?

- I GAVE IT TO HIM...

AS AN OFFERING.

- SO IT WAS YOURS?

- NO.

I WORK
AT A BLOOD BANK DOWNTOWN.

THAT'S WHERE I MET TREY.

HE CAME IN A FEW WEEKS AGO,
CHATTED ME UP.

- HE GOT YOU TO STEAL
BAGS OF BLOOD?

MINA, THAT IS A CRIME.

- I-I KNOW, BUT...

TREY'S TOTALLY SCARED
OF GETTING HIV

FROM BITING RANDOM PEOPLE--

EVEN MADE ME GET TESTED.

AND THE SEX IS REALLY HOT.

- MISTRESS MINA'S STORY
CHECKS OUT...

- ALL RIGHT, THANKS A LOT.

- THOUGH HUDSON BLOOD CENTER
FIRED HER

FOR "UNAUTHORIZED REMOVAL
OF INVENTORY."

- THE BAND IN THE BRONX,

TREY WAS WITH THEM
FROM DUSK TILL DAWN.

WE GOT INVITED TO THEIR FIRST
GIG NEXT MONTH, THOUGH.

- SO WE'RE BACK TO NOWHERE
ON OUR RAPE/MURDER.

- WELL, THE MURDER
MAY NOT HAVE BEEN INTENTIONAL.

WARNER SAYS JANE DOE
HAD A CLOTTING DISORDER

CALLED
STUART-PROWER DEFICIENCY.

IT'S A TYPE OF HEMOPHILIA.

- DID THAT CAUSE HER
TO BLEED OUT?

- YEAH.
WARNER ALSO FOUND RUST

IN HER NECK LACERATION.

FIGURES SHE GOT CUT BEING YANKED
INTO THE BUILDING.

- SO IT EXPLAINS WHY WE
COULDN'T FIND A MURDER WEAPON.

- OH, BUT IT'S
STILL A HOMICIDE.

LIKE THAT BROOKLYN GIRL
LAST YEAR

WHO DIED
OF AN ASTHMA ATTACK

TRIGGERED BY BEING RAPED.

- WELL, WE NEED
A SUSPECT,

BECAUSE ALL WE'VE GOT
IS A WOMAN IN THE MORGUE

AND NO I.D.

- CAN I HELP YOU?

- [clears throat]
LADIES?

UM, IF THERE IS A PROBLEM,

IT WOULD HELP IF SOMEBODY
WOULD ACTUALLY SAY SOMETHING.

- YOU'RE DAMN RIGHT
THERE'S A PROBLEM!

THIS WOMAN'S NAME
IS ALISA DAVIES--

JUST ONE MORE LESBIAN
WHO'S DEAD

BECAUSE OF THE N.Y.P.D.

- WE'RE DYKES,
WE'RE PISSED,

AND WE'RE NOT LEAVING
TILL WE GET RESULTS.

- SO I TAKE IT
YOU'RE THEIR LEADER?

- OH, NOTHING
GETS BY YOU, CURLY.

BABS DUFFY--

PRESIDENT, FOUNDER,
AND SPOKESWOMAN--

OH, THE GAY RIGHTS GROUP.

- NOT GAY RIGHTS,
LESBIAN RIGHTS--

SOMETHING YOU CLOWNS
OBVIOUSLY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT.

- MS. DUFFY, YOU WANT
TO BASH THE POLICE,

YOU'VE COME
TO THE WRONG PLACE.

SPECIAL VICTIMS
IS UNIQUELY SENSITIVE

TO THE NEEDS
OF THE L.G.B.T COMMUNITY.

- WELL, IF YOU WERE
REALLY UNIQUELY SENSITIVE,

YOU'D KNOW IT'S
THE L.G.B.T.Q.I.A. COMMUNITY.

- LESBIANS, GAY, BISEXUAL,
TRANSGENDER, AND...?

- QUESTIONING, INTERSEX, ALLIES.
STAY WITH ME.

- WELL, I GOT A TOUGH TIME

KEEPING UP
WITH POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

- REALLY?
ALL I'M GETTING FROM YOU

IS YOUR PISS-POOR
PATRIARCHAL ATTITUDE,

SO TAKE IT DOWN A NOTCH,
JACK WEBB.

- MS. DUFFY,
YOU HAVE US WRONG.

WE'RE ACTUALLY VERY ATTUNED
TO THE NEEDS OF YOUR COMMUNITY.

WE WORK WITH
THE ANTI-VIOLENCE PROJECT.

WE HAVE A GAY OFFICERS
ACTION LEAGUE.

- BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.

ALL A BUNCH
OF BUREAUCRATIC SUCK-UPS,

CO-OPTED BY THE DOMINANT
HETERONORMATIVE PARADIGM,

KIND OF LIKE YOU, SISTA.

- YOU CAME HERE
BECAUSE OF OUR VICTIM?

YOU SAID HER NAME
WAS ALISA DAVIES?

- YEAH. AND I'M NOT GONNA
LET YOU SWEEP HER UNDER THE RUG.

THERE'S AN EPIDEMIC
OF VIOLENCE IN THIS CITY--

ATTACKS OF LESBIANS,
RAPES OF LESBIANS,

MURDERS OF LESBIANS.

- WE WATCH THE STATS.

NOTHING RECENT
TO SUGGEST AN EPIDEMIC.

- OR EVEN A PATTERN.

- THEN I'M HERE
TO OPEN YOUR EYES.

- DID YOU KNOW
MS. DAVIES PERSONALLY?

- YOU MEAN,
WERE WE LOVERS?

BECAUSE IF TWO LESBIANS
KNOW EACH OTHER,

THEN, NATURALLY, NEXT THING,
THEY'RE IN THEIR BRA AND PANTIES

AND GOING DOWN LIKE
THE TITANI IS THAT IT?

- ARE YOU FOR REAL?

- MS. DUFFY, WE APPRECIATE YOU
IDENTIFYING OUR VICTIM,

BUT WE ALSO NEED TO KNOW
MS. DAVIES' NEXT OF KIN,

SO WE CAN MAKE
A NOTIFICATION.

- I'LL TELL YOU
ON THE RIDE DOWN THERE.

- YOU'RE NOT GOING
ANYWHERE WITH US.

- ONE OF MY SISTERS IS DEAD.

- THAT DOESN'T MAKE YOU
A COP, RED.

- THEN YOU'RE NOT GETTING
THE ADDRESS.

- THEN YOU'RE GOING TO JAIL
FOR OBSTRUCTION.

IS THAT WHAT YOUR GAL PALS
WANT TO HEAR?

BABS DUFFY IS THE PROBLEM,
NOT THE SOLUTION?

- ALISA'S GIRLFRIEND
IS SHARON HARRIS,

225 WEST 14TH STREET,
APARTMENT 6-E.

- SHARON, TURN IT OFF.

- NO WAY. I WANT EVERYONE
TO SEE MY GIRLFRIEND

BEFORE SHE BECOMES ALISA DAVIES,
WORLD-FAMOUS ARTIST.

- WELL, IF I DO,

IT'LL BE BECAUSE
YOU'RE MY BEAUTIFUL MUSE.

NOW TURN OFF THAT CAMERA
SO I CAN RAVAGE YOU.

- YOUR GIRLFRIEND WAS, UH...

VERY TALENTED.

- SHE WAS THE LOVE
OF MY LIFE...

AND MY FIANCEE.

I PROPOSED THE NIGHT
WE MADE THAT VIDEO.

WE WERE GONNA GET MARRIED
IN CONNECTICUT IN MAY.

- ANYBODY HAVE
A PROBLEM WITH THAT?

- NO.

EVERYONE WE KNOW
WAS THRILLED.

- WHAT ABOUT MITCH?

- I DON'T KNOW ANYONE
NAMED MITCH.

- DID ALISA?

- NOT THAT I'M AWARE OF.

WE DON'T HANG OUT
WITH A LOT OF MEN.

- WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME
YOU SAW YOUR FIANCEE?

- TUESDAY NIGHT.

I WORK AT A BAR
A COUPLE BLOCKS OVER--

KITTY CORNER.

ALISA STOPPED BY AROUND 8:00.

SHE WAS IN A GREAT MOOD.

WE HAD A COUPLE OF DRINKS
OUT ON THE BACK PATIO,

AND THEN SHE LEFT.

- THAT WAS TWO NIGHTS AGO.

YOU WEREN'T WORRIED
WHEN SHE DIDN'T COME HOME?

- SOMETIMES SHE DOESN'T.

SHE'D GET AN IDEA
FOR A PIECE OF JEWELRY,

AND SHE'D GO
TO HER STUDIO,

AND SHE'D STAY THERE FOR DAYS
UNTIL IT WAS PERFECT.

I THOUGHT MAYBE SHE'D GONE
THERE TO, YOU KNOW...

MAKE OUR WEDDING BANDS.

- THAT WAS INTERESTING.

ACTED LIKE
I WASN'T EVEN THERE.

- LOOK BETWEEN
YOUR LEGS LATELY?

- WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?

- OH, RIGHT,
'CAUSE I'M A LESBIAN,

I SHOULD BE AT HOME
WITH MY CATS,

SHEETROCKING MY BATHROOM?

ALL RIGHT,
WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED?

WHAT'S OUR NEXT MOVE?

- WHAT WE LEARNED
IS POLICE BUSINESS.

- AND THE NEXT MOVE
IS FOR YOU TO GO HOME.

- WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM, STABLER?

- HAVE YOU LOOKED
IN THE MIRROR LATELY?

- YOU DON'T WANT ME
AS AN ENEMY.

- I'M--I'M PRETTY DAMN SURE

I DON'T WANT YOU
AS A FRIEND EITHER.

- OH, GOOD, BECAUSE
A FRIEND WOULD TELL YOU

YOUR ASS IS HUGE.

I MEAN,
SHOULDN'T HE WORK OUT?

REALLY, IT'S LIKE YOU CAMPED OUT
IN THE BACK OF YOUR PANTS.

- OKAY, WE'RE
STILL ON THE CASE, BABS,

AND IF WE NEED ANY HELP,
WE'LL BE SURE TO CALL YOU.

- ALL RIGHT.
HOW HARD COULD IT BE?

I MEAN, LOOK, I DON'T EXPECT,
UH, ASSY MCBIGPANTS HERE

TO CATCH ANYBODY, BUT, BENSON,
YOU SEEM PRETTY ON THE BALL.

LOOK, IT'S OBVIOUS WE HAVE

A LESBIAN KILLER
ON THE RAMPAGE HERE, OKAY?

FINE, DON'T LISTEN TO ME.

TALK TO BROOKLYN BIAS CRIMES.

I'VE BEEN WORKING
VERY CLOSELY WITH THEM.

OMAR ELLIS
WILL TELL YOU I'M RIGHT.

- BABS DUFFY IS A NUTCASE.

SHE'S IN HERE
EVERY OTHER WEEK,

BREATHING DOWN MY NECK,

CLAIMING ALL AROUND THE CITY,
THERE'S AN--

- EPIDEMIC OF HATE
AGAINST LESBIANS.

- EXACTLY.

LOOK, I'M NOT SAYING WE DON'T
SEE CASES OF GENUINE HATE,

BUT MOST OF THE CRIMES
BABS BRINGS ME

ARE GARDEN-VARIETY FIGHTS
OR INSULTS BETWEEN NEIGHBORS

OR PERCEIVED DIRTY LOOKS.

- IT'S HARD TO MAKE
THE ANTI-LESBIAN CONNECTION.

- WELL,
THAT DOESN'T STOP HER

FROM ACCUSING LOCAL BUSINESSES
OF DISCRIMINATORY POLICIES.

SHE THREATENS LAWSUITS,
ORGANIZES PICKETS.

- BRINGS NEWS MEDIA.

- YEAH,
AND EVERYTHING GOES AWAY

IF THE COMPANY JUST MAKES
A CONTRIBUTION TO LESBESTRONG.

- LOOK, MAYBE HER HEART'S
IN THE RIGHT PLACE,

AND HONESTLY,
I WOULDN'T MIND HER AS MUCH

IF SHE ALSO FOUGHT
FOR GAY MEN,

BISEXUALS,
AND TRANSGENDERS.

BUT FOR BABS,
IT'S ONLY ABOUT LESBIANS, 24-7.

- SO IS THERE ANY EVIDENCE
OF A RAPIST TARGETING LESBIANS?

- NOT SPECIFICALLY.

BUT MOST OF THE ATTACKS WE
DO SEE HAPPEN NEAR LESBIAN BARS.

WHERE'D YOURS HAPPEN?

- MANHATTAN,
48TH AND 10TH.

- THAT'S A FAST-GROWING
LESBIAN AREA.

I'D CHECK WITH A BAR THERE
CALLED THE KITTY CORNER.

ANYTHING HAPPENS WITH LESBIANS,
THEY'LL KNOW.

- KILLER ON THE LOOSE.

IF YOU SEE OR HEAR ANYTHING,
POST IT IN OUR WEBSITE.

THERE'S A KILLER
ON THE LOOSE.

OH.

HELLO, DETECTIVES.

- I SEE BABS
HAS ALL HER TROOPS OUT

POUNDING THE PAVEMENT.

- YEAH.
WHATEVER SHE NEEDS, WE'LL DO.

- JUST LIKE THAT?

- YEAH, JUST LIKE THAT.

LOOK, WE--WE ALL KNOW
THAT BABS

CAN BE PRETTY IN YOUR FACE
AT TIMES.

SHE LIKES
TO CRANK UP THE VOLUME.

- THAT IS THE UNDERSTATEMENT
OF THE YEAR.

- THERE'S A WHOLE COMMUNITY
OF WOMEN HERE

WHO DID NOT HAVE A VOICE
UNTIL BABS SPOKE OUT.

- WOMEN LIKE YOU?

- UNTIL THREE YEARS AGO,

I WAS IN THE CLOSET...

AT HOME, AT WORK,

AND ESPECIALLY
ON THE INSIDE,

BUT BABS--SHE OPENED
THAT DOOR FOR ME.

HER WORDS
BROUGHT ME OUT.

BECAUSE OF BABS,
I WILL NEVER AGAIN BE AFRAID

TO BE WHO I AM.

NONE OF US WILL.

NOW, WILL YOU PLEASE
DO US A FAVOR

AND FIND THE BASTARD
WHO MURDERED OUR FRIEND?

- THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE.

EXCUSE US.

- SUSPICIOUS-LOOKING MEN?

- HANGING AROUND,
MAKING COMMENTS,

TRYING TO PICK UP WOMEN?

- THIS IS HARDLY
THE BAR FOR THAT.

- WELL, WHAT ABOUT
DELIVERY GUYS?

FOOD SERVICE,
LIQUOR DROP-OFFS?

- NEVER ANY TROUBLE.

IS THIS ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED
TO ALISA DAVIES?

- SHE MAY HAVE BEEN TARGETED
FOR BEING GAY

BY SOMEONE NAMED MITCH.

- DON'T KNOW ANY MITCH.

DID YOU TALK
TO ALISA'S GIRLFRIEND, SHARON?

- FIRST THING THIS MORNING.

- OH, SO SHE WASN'T
FULL-ON YET.

- WHAT DOES FULL-ON MEAN?

- DAYTIME SHARON
IS DIFFERENT

FROM SHARON AT NIGHT--

THE WAY SHE DRESSES,
THE WAY SHE ACTS.

SHE WORKS THE DOOR HERE,
KEEPS EVERYONE IN LINE.

- SO SHE'S
KITTY CORNER'S BOUNCER.

- SHARON PREFERS "ENFORCER."

LOVES THROWING PEOPLE OUT.

I'VE SEEN HER KICK
BIKERS' ASSES.

- SO YOU'RE WORRIED

SHE MIGHT HAVE GOTTEN ROUGH
WITH ALISA.

- WELL, JUST THE OTHER NIGHT,
ALISA DROPPED IN FOR A DRINK.

PRETTY SOON,
SHARON HAD HER ON THE PATIO,

YELLING AT HER,

THEN SHARON SHOVED HER, HARD.

ALISA STORMED
OUT THE BACK GATE.

SHARON GOT EVEN MADDER
AND WENT AFTER HER.

- OTHER SIDE OF THAT ALLEY

IS THE BUILDING
WHERE ALISA DIED.

- HOW LONG WAS SHARON GONE?

10, 15 MINUTES.

BAR GOT SLAMMED
RIGHT ABOUT THEN,

SO I LOST TRACK.

LOOK, I LOVE STRONG WOMEN,

BUT SHARON HARRIS
SCARES ME.

GO ON THE INTERNET.
YOU'LL SEE.

SHE RUNS A GROUP
CALLED BIG APPLE AGGRESSIVES.

- SHARON HARRIS
IS AN AGGRESSIVE.

LESBIAN CULTURE
IS JUST AS DIVERSE

AS ANY OTHER ORIENTATION.

AGGRESSIVES
ARE JUST ONE SUBSET.

- LIKE STRAIGHT WOMEN

WHO ENJOY DRESSING IN LEATHER
AND TYING UP MEN.

- EXACTLY.

AGGRESSIVES ADOPT
A MACHO STYLE AND ATTITUDE.

SOME BIND THEIR BREASTS.

SOME EVEN TAKE HORMONES
TO GROW FACIAL HAIR

AND ACCENTUATE MUSCULATURE.

- ARE THEY LIKELY TO BE VIOLENT?
- NOT AT ALL.

LIKE EVERYONE ELSE,

IT ALL BOILS DOWN
TO THE INDIVIDUAL,

WHICH IS
WHY GAYS AND LESBIANS

AREN'T IMMUNE
TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE,

SUBSTANCE ABUSE, RAPE.

JUST MORE PROOF
THAT WE'RE ALL EQUAL.

- MM, WELL, NOT ACCORDING
TO BABS DUFFY.

YOU GOT TO CHECK THIS OUT.
SHE'S EVERYWHERE.

- LOOK, NO ONE IS
REALLY LOOKING AFTER ME

OR MY LADIES HERE,

CERTAINLY NOT
THE SO-CALLED POLICE DEPARTMENT.

SO IF YOU CARE

ABOUT THIS EPIDEMIC OF VIOLENCE
AGAINST LESBIANS,

DO THE RIGHT THING.

DONATE TO LESBESTRONG.

WE OFFER COUNSELING,
LEGAL SERVICES,

ALL THE TOOLS YOU NEED

TO FINALLY TAKE CARE
OF YOURSELVES.

- WOMAN'S GOT A TALENT
FOR SELF-PROMOTION.

- AT OUR EXPENSE.

- AND SHARON HARRIS HAS A TALENT
FOR ROUGHING PEOPLE UP.

SHE BOOTED A GUY
IN THE NADS IN THE SUBWAY,

PUNCHED A GIRL
AT A STREET FAIR

AND TOLD HER
SOMEONE SHOULD RAPE HER

TO TEACH HER A LESSON.

- THAT'S NOT BEING
AN AGGRESSIVE.

THAT'S BEING A PSYCHO.

- OKAY, SO SHARON AND ALISA
GOT IN A FIGHT

OUT BACK AT KITTY CORNER.

ALISA RUNS OUT.

SHARON GRABS HER, DRAGS HER
INTO OUR EMPTY BUILDING,

TEACHES HER A LESSON.

- IT WOULDN'T BE THE FIRST
GIRLFRIEND SHE ATTACKED.

HER PREVIOUS GIRLFRIEND,
JANET BURNELL,

GOT A COURT ORDER OF PROTECTION
AGAINST HER LAST JUNE.

- YEAH, SHARON
DID THAT TO ME.

BUT BLACK EYES HEAL.

THE REAL TORTURE STARTED
AFTER WE BROKE UP.

- ABUSERS ARE EXPERTS
AT MIND GAMES.

- SHE WASN'T PLAYING GAMES.

SHE GOT SPOOF CARDS
FOR MY PHONE NUMBER.

SHE HACKED MY EMAIL,
MY VOICEMAIL.

- DID SHARON THREATEN YOU?

- NO, BUT SHE DELETED
MY CALLS.

SHE SCREWED UP MY APPOINTMENTS
AND DELIVERY SCHEDULES.

MY BUSINESS
TOOK A REAL HIT.

AND GOD HELP ANY WOMAN
WHO LEFT ME A PERSONAL MESSAGE.

- DID YOU NOTIFY THE POLICE?
- I WAS ABOUT TO.

AND THEN IT STOPPED,
JUST LIKE THAT.

I HEARD SHE MET SOMEONE NEW.

- SHE DID, AND THAT WOMAN
IS NOW DEAD.

- OH, MY GOD.

[sighing]
OH, GOD.

DEEP DOWN, I KNEW MITCH
WOULD DO SOMETHING.

- MITCH?

IT'S A...

[whispering]
PET NAME

FROM WHEN WE WERE INTIMATE.

MITCH, SHORT FOR "MY BITCH."

- STOP VIOLENCE
AGAINST LESBIANS!

BIG RALLY
TOMORROW AT NOON!

[car doors close]

- YOU KNOW, LET'S
PLAY THIS ONE LOW KEY.

THE NATIVES
ARE ALREADY RESTLESS.

- DETECTIVES, BIG RALLY
TOMORROW AT NOON.

- "SUPPORT LESBIAN RIGHTS
AND SAFETY.

FEATURED SPEAKER:
BABS...DAFFY."

- JUST MADE MY DAY.

- YOU THINK THIS IS FUNNY?

- LADY, TO TOLD YOU,
IT'S A MISTAKE.

- NO, IT'S PREJUDICE,
PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

I WANT THEM REDONE,
AND I WANT A REFUND!

- I'LL DO IT.
FINE.

- MAKING FRIENDS
AS USUAL, I SEE.

- OH, YEAH,
LIKE HE SCREWS UP

STRAIGHT PEOPLE'S FLYERS.
BIGOTED JERK!

- HEY, BABS, A TYPO?
NOT A HATE CRIME.

- BABS,
CHANNEL 3 IS HERE.

- OH, IT'S ABOUT TIME.
WHERE'S THE CAMERA?

[clears throat] HI. 'CAUSE
I'VE GOT A MESSAGE OUT

FOR THE BASTARD OUT THERE
THAT'S RAPING LESBIANS.

YOUR DAYS
ARE NUMBERED, PAL.

'CAUSE SVU MIGHT BE
DRAGGING THEIR ASSES,

BUT BABS DUFFY IS ON THE CASE.
- THAT WOMAN IS A PIECE OF WORK.

- HEADS-UP--
THERE'S OUR SUSPECT.

- SHARON HARRIS.

NO, NO, NO, Y-YOU'RE GONNA
TALK TO ME THIS TIME,

OR SHOULD
I CALL YOU MITCH?

WHOA!

- LET ME GO!

[grunts] LET ME GO!
- LET'S GO, TOUGH GUY.

- WHAT'S GOING ON?
POLICE BRUTALITY!

LET HER GO!

- LIV, IT'S NOTHING.
- WILL YOU PLEASE HOLD STEADY?

- WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM?

- TECHNICAL TERM?
PUNCHED BY A CHICK.

- HA HA.
YOU'RE LAUGHING NOW.

WAIT TILL I GET
A CONFESSION OUT OF HER.

- ALL DONE.

- HOLD ON. A SUSPECT
ASSAULTS A POLICE OFFICER

AND CHARGES GET FILED.

- I'M FINE.

- WOULD YOU BE SAYING THAT

IF IT WAS A 200-POUND MAN
WHO SLUGGED YOU?

- WELL, NEXT TIME ONE DOES,
I'LL LET YOU KNOW.

- I'M NOT TALKING
WITH HIM HERE.

- WELL, THAT'S THE BEAUTY
OF IT, MITCH.

YOU DON'T GET A VOTE.

- TELL HIM TO LEAVE,
DETECTIVE BENSON...

PLEASE.

THEN I'LL SPEAK TO YOU.

- [chuckles]

- THAT WAS QUICK.

SHE DIDN'T PUNCH YOU AGAIN,
DID SHE?

- AH, YOU KNOW, SOME WOMEN

JUST DON'T WANT
TO TALK MAN TO MAN.

- STABLER!

- I WISH SHE'D REFUSE
TO TALK TO ME.

- LOOK, YOU PIGHEADED
SON OF A BITCH,

YOU CAN'T DRAG AN INNOCENT--

HI.

BABS DUFFY.

- ALEX CABOT.
I WILL LEAVE YOU TWO ALONE.

- YOU DON'T HAVE TO.

- NO, YOU WANT TO SAY SOMETHING,
LET'S DO IT IN THE BOX.

- YOU CANNOT BELIEVE
SHE KILLED HER.

- YEAH, WHY'S THAT?
- SHE'S A WOMAN!

- WHO GETS OFF
ON SLUGGING PEOPLE.

- WOMEN RESORT TO VIOLENCE

ONLY WHEN PROVOKED
BY MALE OPPRESSION.

- YOUR P.C. CRAP
IS KILLING ME.

- HEY, YOU JUST DON'T WANT
TO HEAR ANYTHING

THAT THREATENS
THE POWER STRUCTURE

PERPETUATING MALE CONTROL.

- WHAT I CARE ABOUT
IS PROBABLE CAUSE--

THERE'S YOUR P.C.--

WHICH IS WHAT I HAVE
AGAINST SHARON HARRIS.

- I DIDN'T KILL ALISA.

- I DON'T THINK
THAT YOU MEANT TO,

BUT YOU HAVE
A VERY SERIOUS ANGER PROBLEM.

- NO, I DON'T.

- NO, YOU DON'T?
YOU ATTACKED MY PARTNER.

YOU HIT PEOPLE
ON THE STREET.

AND YOU WERE SEEN SHOVING ALISA
THE NIGHT SHE DIED.

- YOU CANNOT BELIEVE
I KILLED HER!

- YOU'VE LIED TO US
EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.

- NO, I DIDN'T.
- YOU LIED ABOUT THE BAR.

- OKAY, ME AND ALISA ARGUED!

- YOU LIED ABOUT HER GOING
TO HER STUDIO.

- I THOUGHT SHE WENT THERE!

- AND YOU LIED
ABOUT NOT KNOWING WHO MITCH WAS.

DIDN'T YOU?

[screen bangs]

- HASN'T ANYBODY EVER CALLED YOU
BY A SPECIAL NAME?

- NOT BITCH.

- YEAH, WELL, I LIVE
IN A DIFFERENT WORLD THAN YOU.

STRAIGHTS NEVER UNDERSTAND
PEOPLE LIKE ME.

- SHARON,
I WANT TO HELP YOU.

- YOU WANT TO PUT ME
IN JAIL...

BECAUSE OF WHO I AM.

- THAT HAS NOTHING
TO DO WITH IT.

WHAT DID ALISA DO
THAT MADE YOU SO ANGRY?

SHE LOOK
AT ANOTHER WOMAN?

- SHE DIDN'T DO ANYTHING.

- DID SHE WANT
TO BREAK UP WITH YOU?

- NO.

WE WERE IN LOVE.

- THEN WHY WERE YOU
YELLING AT HER...

RIGHT BEFORE
SHE WAS MURDERED?

- BECAUSE I GET ANGRY
ABOUT THINGS,

AND I HIT PEOPLE...

PEOPLE I LOVE.

BUT ALISA KNEW THAT.

SHE GOT ME
INTO THERAPY.

SHE WAS HELPING ME BE
A BETTER PERSON.

- WHEN THE PATROL OFFICER
ASKED WHO ATTACKED HER...

SHE SAID, "MITCH."

- SHE WAS ASKING FOR ME.

SHE WAS SCARED, CONFUSED.

SHE LOVED ME.

- LIV.

- FIN, JUST GIVE US
A MINUTE.

- YOU DON'T NEED IT.
PERP JUST STRUCK AGAIN.

- AFTER WE HANDED OUT
THE LAST FLYER,

THE OTHER GIRLS
WENT TO GRAB A DRINK

AT KITTY CORNER,
BUT I WANTED TO GET HOME

TO UPDATE OUR WEBSITE
ABOUT THE RALLY.

- SO YOU WERE
ON THE STREET ALONE?

- YEAH, I WAS ALL ALONE.
I WAS...

PASSING BY
AN EMPTY DOORWAY

WHEN HE REACHED OUT
AND GRABBED ME FROM BEHIND.

I TRIED TO SCREAM,

BUT HIS HAND
WAS ALREADY OVER MY MOUTH.

- AND HE DRAGGED YOU
INTO THE EMPTY BUILDING.

- THEN HE SLAMMED ME DOWN
ON MY STOMACH...

AND, UM,
TOOK OFF MY JEANS.

- ROSEMARY, DO YOU--

DID YOU SEE HIM AT ALL?
DO YOU REMEMBER ANYTHING?

HIS FACE, HOW TALL HE WAS?

- NO.
I JUST, UH...

I JUST HEARD
HIS VOICE SAYING,

"YOU DYKES HAVE RUINED
MY NEIGHBORHOOD."

YOU KNOW,
I KNOW SELF-DEFENSE.

I COULD HAVE, UM--

I COULD HAVE GRABBED
SOME OF HIS HAIR FOR DNA

OR SCRATCHED HIM.

- HEY, THIS
IS NOT YOUR FAULT.

- OH, MY GOD.

OH, MY GOD.

- WHAT'S WRONG?
- HE TOOK MY BLACKBERRY.

NAMES AND ADDRESSES
OF EVERY MEMBER OF LESBESTRONG.

I NEED TO SEE BABS.

- ROSEMARY, YOU NEED
TO JUST STAY CALM, OKAY?

- I'M RIGHT HERE, HONEY.
- I TOLD YOU TO STAY OUTSIDE.

- YOU ALSO SAID
SHARON WAS GUILTY.

- BABS, HE HAD
A MESSAGE FOR YOU.

HE SAID,
"TELL THAT BITCH BABS DUFFY

I'M COMING FOR HER NEXT."

- I'M NOT GOING INTO HIDING.
- IT'S FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY.

- PROTECTIVE CUSTODY--
IT'S A GOOD KIND OF P.C.

- READ
MY PERFECTLY GLOSSED LIPS.

I DON'T RUN.

- AND IF THIS BASTARD
FINDS YOU

AND RAPES YOU
AND, GOD FORBID, KILLS YOU,

THEN WHAT ARE YOUR SUPPORTERS
LIKE ROSEMARY GONNA DO, HUH?

AND WHAT IS LESBESTRONG
GOING TO ACCOMPLISH

WITHOUT BABS DUFFY
AT THE HELM?

- LET ME GUESS--

NO PHONE CALLS, NO TEXTING,
NO TWEETING,

STUCK IN SOME FLEABAG MOTEL.

- YOU'RE GONNA LOVE IT.

- FINE, BUT ONLY AT MY PLACE.
- BABS, HE KNOWS WHERE YOU LIVE.

- AND YOU'LL BE RIGHT THERE
TO HOLD MY HAND.

- WE SAID NO INTERNET.

- HEY, HEY, HEY,
I HAVE A BLOG TO REPORT.

THERE'S A RALLY TOMORROW.

- UNTIL WE CATCH THIS GUY,
IT'S CANCELED.

- [sighs]

- AND NO SECRET
TWEETING EITHER.

- FINE. TAKE IT.
I'M GOING CRAZY IN HERE.

- TRY TO RELAX,

AWAY FROM THE WINDOW, PLEASE.

- THAT'S JUST IT--
I NEVER RELAX, ALL RIGHT?

I'VE ALWAYS GOT TO BE
DOING SOMETHING--

PLANNING OR PICKETING
OR MARCHING.

- WHY DON'T YOU TAKE
THIS OPPORTUNITY

TO HAVE A MOMENT ALONE?

TRY TO GET
YOUR HEAD TOGETHER?

- 'CAUSE I DON'T DO ALONE
VERY WELL.

I DON'T LIKE SITTING HERE

WHILE THAT PRICK IS OUT THERE
ATTACKING MY SISTERS.

- BABS, DON'T WORRY.

NOTHING PISSES OFF
MY PARTNER MORE

THAN SOMEBODY
TARGETING WOMEN.

HE'S GONNA CATCH THIS GUY.

- [scoffs] WELL, HE HAS THE HOTS
FOR YOU, YOU KNOW.

- EXCUSE ME?
- STABLER.

- [scoffs]
NO.

UH, NO, THAT'S
NEVER GONNA HAPPEN.

[chuckles]

SO YOU'VE BEEN ON THE FRONT LINE
FOR A LONG TIME.

- MARCHED THROUGH TEAR GAS
FOR THAT RALLY.

THAT WAS
A THREE-DAY SIT-IN.

THAT'S WHY THIS FEELS
SO WEIRD FOR ME.

I SHOULD BE OUT THERE
KICKING PEOPLE'S ASSES,

NOT IN HERE HIDING, FEELING...

- SCARED?

- PETRIFIED.

- I KNOW THAT IT'S HARD...

BUT YOU'RE GONNA
GET THROUGH THIS.

- YOU PROMISE? 'CAUSE
I DON'T DO THIS EVERY DAY,

NOT LIKE YOU DO.

- I PROMISE, OKAY?

NOW, LET'S--LET'S GET
SOMETHING TO EAT, OKAY?

WHOA, WHOA, WHOA.

NOW, THAT'S NOT
ON THE MENU.

- IS IT ME?

- NO.
NO, IT'S ME.

I'M--I'M--
BABS, I'M FLATTERED.

I'M--I'M JUST ALSO STRAIGHT.

- OH.

COME ON, I MEAN...

THE JOB AND THE GUN
AND THE ATTITUDE--

YOU'RE LIKE ELLEN,
JOAN CRAWFORD,

AND CALAMITY JANE
ALL ROLLED INTO ONE.

- [chuckles]

- IF YOU CAN BALANCE
A CHECKBOOK,

I'LL THROW IN SUZE ORMAN.

LOOK, BELIEVE ME...

I KNOW HOW DIFFICULT
IT CAN BE--

THE CONFLICTED FEELINGS.

BUT THE HEART WANTS
WHAT THE HEART WANTS.

[knock at door]
- BENSON, IT'S DELGADO!

- THAT'S MY SHIFT CHANGE.

UM...

BABS, YOU HANG
IN THERE, OKAY?

I'M GONNA--I'M GONNA CHECK IN
ON YOU TOMORROW.

GOOD NIGHT.

- HOW'S IT GOING, OLIVIA?

- IF I WERE YOU,
I'D STAY OUTSIDE.

- HOW'S BABS?

- SHE'S...BABS.

- YEAH, MY CONDOLENCES.

SO I GOT
THE SECURITY FOOTAGE

FROM THE BUILDING
WHERE ROSEMARY WAS RAPED.

AT 3:22 P.M.,
THE PERP DRAGS HER INSIDE.

[mouse clicks]
3:31 P.M.,

THE PERP LEAVES.

- WHAT'S THAT ON HIS HAND,
A TATTOO?

- YEAH, I HAVE MORALES
TRYING TO CLEAN IT UP.

[groans]

- HEY...

EL, CAN I ASK YOU SOMETHING?
- YEAH.

- DO YOU EVER GET
A GAY VIBE FROM ME?

- WOULD IT MATTER IF I DID?
[telephone ringing]

- YOU'RE NOT ANSWERING
THE QUESTION.

- WELL, IT'S NOT LIKE YOU'VE
HAD A LOT OF LUCK WITH GUYS.

- IT'S CALLED BEING MARRIED
TO THE JOB.

- DID, UH, BABS
MAKE A MOVE ON YOU?

- OLIVIA BENSON.

- I GET HIT,
YOU GET HIT ON.

- AND OUR PERP GETS SHOT.

[hangs up phone]

[crowd shouting]
- IT WAS A LITTLE AFTER 10:00.

MISS DUFFY HAD GONE TO BED,

AND I WAS DOING
A WALK-AROUND OF THE BUILDING

WHEN I SAW MOVEMENT
UP ON THAT FIRE ESCAPE

OUTSIDE
MISS DUFFY'S BEDROOM.

- AND THE GUY WAS TRYING
TO BREAK IN?

- YES, MA'AM.

I YELLED FOR THE SUSPECT
TO SHOW HIS HANDS.

HE TURNED AROUND
HOLDING THIS.

- A TIRE IRON.

THAT WOULD PUT A DENT
IN BABS' SKULL, PROBABLY.

- I FIRED ONE SHOT,
HE FELL,

GOT KNOCKED OUT
ON THE WAY DOWN.

- GOOD WORK.
- THANKS.

- BABS.

YOU OKAY?

- SHE'S STILL SHAKEN UP.

AT LEAST NOW IT'S OVER.
[crowd shouting]

- OUTTA MY WAY!

LET ME THROUGH.
- IT'S NOT OVER YET. LIV?

- LET ME THROUGH!
- SHARON!

- YOU ARE DEAD,
- GET HER AWAY FROM ME!

- YOU KILLED ALISA!

[overlapping shouts]

- SINGLE G.S.W.
TO THE LEFT BUTTOCK,

MILD CONCUSSION FROM THE FALL,

CUTS AND BRUISES
FROM THE CROWD ASSAULT.

- SO HE'S GONNA BE SORE
WHEN HE WAKES UP.

- YEAH, AND READY
FOR QUESTIONING.

- YOU KNOW, DOC, IT'D BE A BIG
HELP IF WE COULD RUN HIS DNA,

YOU KNOW, MATCH HIM
TO OTHER ATTACKS.

WHAT DO YOU SAY,
A QUICK BUCCAL SWAB?

- OH, YEAH, SURE.
THE MOMENT I SEE A WARRANT.

- WORTH A SHOT.

- DO YOU HAVE THAT SECURITY
PHOTO THAT MORALES CLEANED UP?

A SPIDER.

NO SPIDER HERE.

THIS GUY'S NOT OUR PERP.

- SO WHO THE HELL IS HE?

- HIS PERSONAL EFFECTS
OUGHT TO TELL US.

- WE HAVE AN I.D.

LARRY LUFT,
40 YEARS OLD, BROOKLYN.

- AND YOU'RE NEVER GONNA BELIEVE
HOW HE KNOWS BABS.

- YOU THINK
THIS IS MY BOYFRIEND?

- WELL, HE'S DEFINITELY
NOT OUR RAPIST.

- DETECTIVE BENSON, I DON'T KNOW
IF YOU RECALL LAST NIGHT,

BUT I'M GAY.

- WELL,
FOR A MAN-HATING LESBIAN,

YOU SEEM AWFULLY CUDDLY
WITH LARRY LUFT.

- YEAH, WE DUMPED
LARRY'S CELL PHONE.

380 TEXTS BETWEEN YOU TWO
IN THE LAST MONTH ALONE?

- OKAY, BABS, SO NOW IT'S TIME
TO REALLY BE STRONG.

- ALL RIGHT, LOOK...

YOU THINK I EXPECTED
THIS TO HAPPEN?

I STILL TOTALLY LOVE WOMEN.

I MET LARRY AT A RALLY
SIX MONTHS AGO,

AND NOW I HAVE FEELINGS
FOR HIM TOO.

- HEART WANTS
WHAT THE HEART WANTS.

- I KNOW. I GET IT.

I FEEL LIKE
A COMPLETE TRAITOR.

I'M TORN BETWEEN
WHO I'VE ALWAYS BEEN

AND WHO I'M BECOMING.

- SO THIS ULTRAMILITANT STANCE
WAS WHAT,

JUST A COVER SO NO ONE
WOULD FIND OUT

ABOUT THE REVERSE CLOSET
YOU WERE IN?

- NO, IT WAS NEVER A COVER.

I'LL NEVER STOP FIGHTING
FOR LESBIANS.

- SO LAST NIGHT,
HE JUST CAME TO SEE YOU?

- YEAH, I TEXTED HIM
TO STAY AWAY,

BUT I GUESS
HE WAS SCARED FOR ME,

AND SO NEXT THING YOU KNOW,
HE'S ON MY FIRE ESCAPE.

- WITH A TIRE IRON?

- YEAH, I SIT
OUT THERE SOMETIMES.

THE WINDOW STICKS.

HAVE YOU GUYS BEEN
TO THE HOSPITAL?

I MEAN,
IS--IS HE GONNA BE OKAY?

- YEAH, HE'S OUT OF THE WOODS.

YOU'RE NOT, THOUGH.

- MY GIRLS CAN'T FIND OUT
ABOUT THIS.

THEY WOULD SEE THIS
AS THE ULTIMATE BETRAYAL.

PLEASE.

- BABS...

YOU'RE BISEXUAL.
THAT'S THE TRUTH.

THEY'RE GONNA
FIND OUT SOMETIME.

- BY COMING OUT AGAIN,

I'LL GET THIS TARGET
OFF MY BACK.

- AND YOU'RE GONNA COME OUT...

IN A BIG WAY.

- AND LESBESTRONG
WILL KEEP FIGHTING

FOR THE RIGHTS
AND THE SAFETY

OF LESBIANS EVERYWHERE!

[cheers and applause]

- RIGHT ON!

- DO YOU SEE ANYBODY
WHO MIGHT BE OUR GUY?

- NOT YET. IT'S HARD TO SEE
WITH ALL THESE SIGNS.

- HE'LL BE HERE.
GUY'S OBSESSED

THAT THEY'RE RUINING
HIS NEIGHBORHOOD.

- BUT THE REAL REASON
WE ARE HERE

IS TO CELEBRATE THE CAPTURE
OF THE RAPIST...

- YEAH!

- AND THE WOMAN
WHO MADE IT HAPPEN,

THE WOMAN WHO MAKES
EVERYTHING HAPPEN,

BABS DUFFY!

[cheers and applause]

- THANK YOU, ROSEMARY,

AND TO ALL OF YOU
FOR COMING.

BUT I'M SAD TO SAY WE MAY NOT BE
OUT OF THE WOODS YET.

THE MAN THE POLICE
CAUGHT LAST NIGHT

WAS NOT THE ONE WHO'S
BEEN TERRORIZING OUR COMMUNITY.

[overlapping chatter]

- I HAVE...

I HAVE
SOME OTHER NEWS TOO.

AND YOU MAY NOT
WANT TO HEAR IT,

BUT IT'S IMPORTANT
THAT YOU HEAR IT,

AND IT'S IMPORTANT
THAT I SAY IT.

[clears throat]

I SAID THE MAN THEY CAUGHT
OUTSIDE ON MY FIRE ESCAPE

WAS NOT THE RAPIST.

IN FACT,
HE'S SOMEONE I KNOW,

SOMEONE I KNOW WELL.

THAT MAN WAS...

I'M IN A RELATIONSHIP
WITH HIM.

[all gasping]
- WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

- BABS, IS THIS A JOKE?

- NO, IT'S NOT.

I HAVE FEELINGS
FOR A MAN.

- YOU BETRAYED ME.

YOU BETRAYED ALL OF US.

[overlapping chatter]

- BABS DUFFY, YOU'RE A LIAR!

- BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN
I DON'T STILL LOVE WOMEN!

I DO!

IT MEANS I'M GOING TO FIGHT
FOR EQUALITY FOR EVERYONE,

INCLUDING BISEXUALS,
LIKE MYSELF,

AND GAY MEN
AND TRANSGENDER PEOPLE

AND STRAIGHT PEOPLE!

I WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT
FOR EVERYONE!

EQUALITY FOR ALL!

- WE STILL LOVE YOU, BABS!
- I GOT HIM. IT'S HIM.

IT'S THE GUY
FROM THE PRINT SHOP.

LIV, STAY WITH BABS.

FIN, IT'S THE GUY WITH THE BEARD
AND THE BLUE SMOCK.

POLICE, STOP!

- GET OFF OF ME!

GET OFF OF ME!

- GOING SOMEWHERE, RAPIST?

- I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING.
LEAVE ME ALONE!

LOOK, MAN, I RAN
BECAUSE I WAS SCARED.

- I'M SURE YOU WERE,
MR. WHATLEY,

BECAUSE
WE FINALLY FIGURED OUT

THAT YOU WERE THE ONE
RAPING LESBIANS.

- WHAT? I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING
AGAINST LESBIANS.

- SO IT'S
JUST A COINCIDENCE

THAT ALL THE BUSINESSES
YOU FILED COMPLAINTS AGAINST

IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD
ARE OWNED AND OPERATED BY THEM?

NEW LIGHT BOOKSTORE,

RUBY MAY'S DRY CLEANING,
KITTY CORNER.

- I DIDN'T KNOW
THEY WERE LESBIAN PLACES.

- WELL,
I BET YOU DID, RONNIE.

I BET THAT YOU SIT
IN THE PRINT SHOP

THAT YOUR FAMILY HAS OWNED
FOR 50 YEARS,

AND YOU WERE WATCHING THEM
MOVE INTO YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD,

TAKING IT OVER,

RUINING IT.

- LOOK, YOU GOT IT WRONG, MAN.

I'M VERY SUPPORTIVE.

- YOU WANT THEM OUT,
ALL OF THEM--

OUT OF YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD,
OUT OF YOUR LIFE.

- THE ONLY THING I WANT
IS YOU OUT OF MY FACE,

BECAUSE YOU GOT
THE WRONG GUY.

- WHY ISN'T HE NAILING HIM?

- WELL, ELLIOT'S
JUST GETTING STARTED.

- WITH NO DNA OR VICTIM I.D.,

I NEED WHATLEY SPILLING HIS GUTS
ON STABLER'S SHOES,

AND WE ARE A HELL OF A LONG WAY
FROM THAT HAPPENING.

- I HAVE AN IDEA THAT
JUST MIGHT SPEED UP THE PROCESS.

- SO HOW WILL IT LOOK WHEN
I SEARCH YOUR PRINTING SHOP,

AND I FIND
THE LAST VICTIM'S BLACKBERRY?

HMM?

- HI, BOYS.
MIND IF I PLAY?

- DETECTIVE BENSON,

I DON'T THINK
YOU SHOULD BE IN HERE.

- WELL, I DON'T NEED
TO KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.

- DETECTIVE, I THINK IT'S TOO
PERSONAL FOR YOU TO BE IN HERE.

- BIG GIRLS
DON'T CRY, STABLER.

COME ON, JUST LET ME
TALK TO HIM.

- SO...

REMEMBER ME?

- YEAH, YOU WERE ONSTAGE TODAY.

- UH-OH. THAT MAKES ME
ONE OF THEM.

YOU MUST FEEL
SICK TO YOUR STOMACH

HAVING SOMEONE LIKE ME
SO CLOSE TO YOU.

- I DON'T CARE.

- IF I WAS STRAIGHT,
IT WOULDN'T FREAK YOU OUT.

OF COURSE,
IF I WAS STRAIGHT,

I WOULDN'T BE
ANYWHERE NEAR YOU...

'CAUSE THAT'S YOUR PROBLEM,
ISN'T IT, RONNIE?

[chair thuds]

HUH?

DON'T GET
A LOT OF GIRLIE ACTION.

- THAT'S NONE
OF YOUR BUSINESS.

- OH, COME ON.

I MEAN, YOU'RE
NOT VERY ATTRACTIVE.

YOU GOT A CRAP JOB,

STUCK IN THAT
HOT SHOP ALL DAY,

DOWN THERE PRINTING UP SIGNS
AND INVITATIONS

FOR OTHER PEOPLE'S FUN.

AND WHERE YOU ARE,

THAT'S LESBIAN PARTIES,

LESBIAN WEDDINGS,

LESBIAN BLOWOUTS,

EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND
AT KITTY CORNER.

IT'S LIKE EVERYONE
IN YOUR LITTLE WORLD

IS OUT THERE HAVING
A GREAT TIME, GETTING LAID,

EXCEPT YOU.

- OKAY, YOU NEED
TO SHUT UP NOW.

- WAS THAT HOW IT STARTED?

DID YOU MAKE A MOVE
ON ONE OF US,

AND WE BLEW YOU OFF?

'CAUSE IT'S BAD ENOUGH

THAT STRAIGHT GIRLS
LOOK RIGHT THROUGH YOU.

AND NOW YOUR HOOD
IS FULL OF LESBIANS,

AND WE'RE IGNORING YOU TOO?

- JUST GET AWAY FROM ME.

- SO YOU SIT DOWN THERE
IN YOUR SHOP,

AND YOU SEETHE...

AND MAYBE SCREW UP
ONE OF THEIR NAMES,

LIKE YOU DID WITH BABS
JUST TO PISS A BITCH OFF.

- NO, THAT WAS A MISTAKE!

- YEAH, A MISTAKE
JUST LIKE ALL US LESBIANS

ARE A MISTAKE,

EXCEPT THE GOOD NEWS IS,
YOU KNOW HOW TO CORRECT US.

- NO, YOU'RE WRONG.

- BUT YOU WANT TO MAKE ME RIGHT,
DON'T YOU, RONNIE?

CORRECT A BITCH LIKE ME,

GRAB ME OFF OF MY FEET,

THROW ME ONTO THAT TABLE,
AND BEND ME ALL THE WAY OVER,

BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT
EVERYTHING YOU NEED

TO MAKE A REAL WOMAN
RIGHT BETWEEN YOUR LEGS.

- AND YOU'D LOVE IT...

JUST LIKE THOSE OTHER TWO DID,

EVERY MOMENT OF IT.

- GOOD-BYE, RONNIE.

- OH, YOU BITCH!

YOU BITCH!

- YOU GOT HIM.

- SHE GOT HIM.

ONE HELL OF A PERFORMANCE,
I THINK.

- WELL, THANK YOU
FROM ALL OF US.

- SO ARE YOU STILL SPEAKING
FOR THE COMMUNITY?

- REALLY,
ABOUT A TENTH OF THEM,

BUT LESBESTRONG
WILL BE BACK.

I'M OPENING THE MEMBERSHIP
TO INCLUDE EVERYONE,

MAKING IT A REAL
L.G.B.T.Q.I.A. ORGANIZATION.

- WELL, "A" IS FOR ALLY,
SO YOU CAN COUNT US IN.

- LARRY'S NOT AN ALLY.

APPARENTLY GETTING SHOT
KIND OF SOURED HIM ON ME.

- BULLET IN THE ASS
WILL DO THAT.

- BUT MOSTLY,
THANKS FROM ME

FOR MAKING ME COME CLEAN
ABOUT WHO I REALLY AM.

- IT'S A BIG RELIEF, RIGHT?

- YOU HAVE NO IDEA.

AND SORRY
ABOUT THAT AWKWARD LUNGE.

UM, I GUESS MY GAYDAR
WAS A LITTLE OFF.

YOU ARE INCREDIBLY HOT,
THOUGH.

- NO WORRIES, BABS. I'M SURE
WE'LL BE SEEING YOU AROUND.

- EVERY TIME
WE TURN ON THE TV.

- OKAY, I GUESS
I DO OWE YOU AN APOLOGY.

I WAS PRETTY BITCHY TO YOU.

- RIGHT BACK AT YOU.

- OH, STABLER,
ONE MORE THING...

CALL ME SOMETIME.
