Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999–…): Season 12, Episode 23 - Delinquent - full transcript

A naked teenage boy found asleep in a woman's bed puts Detectives Benson and Stabler on the hunt for what turns out to be a possessive mother who has a "reasonable" excuse for his every misbehavior. As they attempt to ferret the truth out of the manipulative teenager, a bigger truth may await them.

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.

POLITICAL AFFILIATION?

- WHAT?

- YOU'RE A DEMOCRAT?

WELL, YOU'RE YOUNG.

- WHAT--WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

- WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT
THEY SAY.

IF YOU'RE A REPUBLICAN
BEFORE 30,

YOU HAVE NO HEART.

AND IF YOU'RE A DEMOCRAT
AFTER 30,



YOU HAVE NO BRAIN.

- I'M 34.

- CAN I USE YOUR BATHROOM

BEFORE I HEAD CROSS TOWN?

- SECOND DOOR ON YOUR LEFT.

- SORRY.
- YOUR OTHER LEFT, GENIUS.

- HEY, NO NEED TO GET NASTY.

YOU KNOW, AT LEAST
I WAS HONEST.

HOW OLD'S YOUR KID, ANNIE?

- WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

[gasps]

- HER SCREAMS WOKE UP
GOLDILOCKS HERE,

HE TRIED TO BOLT BUCK NAKED,

BUT THE GIRL'S DATE
BROUGHT HIM DOWN.

- I HAD MY FIRST DRINK
LAST NIGHT, OKAY?

LESSON LEARNED.
- HOW OLD ARE YOU?

- 14.

- WHAT DO WE HAVE HERE?

- UNFINISHED BUSINESS
NIGHT WATCH DROPPED ON US.

- HUNTER MAZELON.

WOMAN WOKE UP,
FOUND HIM NAKED

PASSED OUT IN HER BED.

- I CAN EXPLAIN THAT.

- JUST DON'T.

YOU NEED A PARENT PRESENT.

- WHEN NIGHT WATCH
CONTACTED HIS MOTHER,

SHE SAID LET HIM SPEND
THE NIGHT IN JAIL.

- AND YOU WONDER WHY
I WAS DRIVEN TO DRINK.

- THAT KID WAS TRYING
TO RAPE ME.

- DON'T FLATTER YOURSELF, LADY.
- YOU CAN'T BE HERE.

- I FOUND THIS
IN MY CLOSET THIS MORNING

WITH AN EMPTY
BOTTLE OF WHISKEY.

YOU HID IN MY CLOSET
TO ATTACK ME.

- NINTH GRADE SCIENCE.

PROPERTY OF HUNTER MAZELON.

DUCT TAPE.

PANTYHOSE.

- SHE'S PARANOID.

- REALLY?

WHAT WERE YOU DOING
WITH THAT?

- IT'S COOL.

[dramatic music]

*

- YOU'RE STAYING IN HERE
TILL YOUR MOM SHOWS UP.

- SCREW YOU.
I'M CLAUSTROPHOBIC.

- THEN WHY WERE YOU HIDING
IN A WOMAN'S CLOSET?

- THIS IS BULL.

- YOU KNOW SOMETHING, PAL,
IF I HAD MY WAY,

I'D BE THROWING YOU
IN THE CAGE

WITH THE ADULT SKELS YOU'RE
TRYING SO HARD TO BECOME.

- BRING IT.
- WELL, THE RULES SAY

I HAVE TO KEEP YOU IN
A CHILD-APPROPRIATE AREA.

- [scoffs]
THESE CASE FILES?

- DON'T WORRY ABOUT THEM.

JUNIOR, FACE THE WALL.

- YOU GONNA GIVE ME
A CAVITY SEARCH NOW?

- JUST STAND STILL.

- [scoffs]

HEY, THAT'S NOT COOL!
DON'T TOUCH ME THERE, MAN!

I NEED AN ADULT IN HERE!
QUIT TOUCHING MY JUNK!

- DETECTIVE,
IS THERE A PROBLEM?

- YEAH, THE KID'S A SMARTASS.

THINK THAT'S FUNNY?

- NO.
- THEN WHY'D YOU YELL THAT?

- I FREAKED OUT.

IT'S MY FIRST TIME
BEING ARRESTED.

- WELL, I WAS JUST
HEADING OUT ON PATROL.

YOU NEED ME
TO SEND SOMEBODY IN?

- UH--
- HMM?

HE'S TALKING TO YOU,
NOT ME.

- NO, NO, WE'RE COOL.

- WE'RE COOL.

FACE THE WALL.

YOU DON'T HAVE
ENOUGH CHARGES AGAINST YOU?

NOW YOU'RE MAKING
FALSE ALLEGATIONS?

- IT WAS A JOKE, MAN.

I'M SURE NEITHER OF US ARE
IN HERE TO JACK ANYONE UP.

- WELL, YOU SIT TIGHT.

I'LL SEE YOU UPSTAIRS
WHEN MOMMY GETS HERE.

- I CAN'T WAIT.

- EXCUSE ME.

THEY HAVE KEPT ME WAITING
DOWNSTAIRS FOR 40 MINUTES.

CAN YOU PLEASE FIND OUT WHERE
HUNTER MAZELON IS BEING HELD?

I'M HIS MOTHER.

- DETECTIVES
BENSON AND STABLER

ARE THE PRIMARIES
ON THAT CASE.

WHY DON'T YOU HAVE A SEAT
WHILE I LOCATE THEM.

- ABSOLUTELY NOT.

- FEEL FREE TO STAND
IF YOU PREFER.

- SPECIAL VICTIMS IS
A SEX CRIME UNIT, RIGHT?

HUNTER WAS PICKED UP
ON A KID'S PRANK.

WHAT IS HE DOING HERE?

- THERE'S BEEN
A NEW DEVELOPMENT.

- DID SOMEONE
DO SOMETHING TO HIM?

- YOUR SON ISN'T THE VICTIM.

- WHAT--
THAT'S INSANE.

HUNTER MAZELON.

YOU MUST HAVE GOTTEN HIM
MIXED UP WITH SOMEONE ELSE.

- LOOK, I KNOW YOU'RE UPSET.

BUT JUST OUT OF CURIOSITY,

WHY WEREN'T YOU CONCERNED ABOUT
HIS WHEREABOUTS LAST NIGHT?

- WHEN THE POLICE CALLED
I WAS FURIOUS,

AND I TOLD THEM TO KEEP HIM
AND TEACH HIM A LESSON.

LET HIM THINK ABOUT
WHAT HE'S PUT ME THROUGH.

- THE ARRESTING OFFICER

DIDN'T CONTACT YOU
TILL 3:00 IN THE MORNING.

WHERE DID YOU THINK
HUNTER WAS BEFORE THAT?

- SPENDING THE NIGHT
AT HIS FRIEND JAKE'S

WORKING ON
A SCIENCE PROJECT.

- HOW COULD HUNTER DO THAT?

THE SCIENCE FAIR'S MONDAY.
WE'RE DEAD.

- YEAH, YOUR NEXT-DOOR
NEIGHBOR ANNIE MEYERS

IS ALL CHOKED UP
ABOUT THAT.

- DID YOU KNOW ANYTHING
ABOUT THIS, JAKE?

- NO.

- HUNTER JIMMIED OPEN
HER SERVICE ENTRANCE.

HE PROBABLY NEEDED
A LOOKOUT.

- YOU TWO PARTNERS
IN MORE THAN SCIENCE?

- NO, WE'RE BARELY
PARTNERS IN THAT.

HUNTER SHOWED UP HIGH
AND BAILED EARLY.

- WHY ARE YOU FRIENDS
WITH A BOY LIKE THAT?

- I'M NOT.

WE WERE THE ONLY TWO LOSERS
WITHOUT A PARTNER.

THEY PAIRED US UP.

- OKAY, THEN WHY'D HE TARGET
YOUR NEXT-DOOR NEIGHBOR ANNIE?

SHE SAID SHE NEVER MET HIM.

- SHE WAS LEAVING HER APARTMENT
WHEN HE GOT HERE LAST NIGHT.

HE MADE DIRTY GESTURES
WHILE SHE WAS WALKING AWAY.

- YOU EVER SEE HUNTER
EXHIBIT ANY VIOLENT STREAK?

- JUST ON HOSNI MURIBBIT.

OUR MUMMIFICATION PROJECT.

THE FIRST STEP IS
TO PUSH A SHARP ROD

INTO THE NOSE
AND PULL OUT THE BRAINS.

IT'S CALLED PITHING.

- THE FROG IN THAT PICTURE
IS STILL ALIVE.

- I TOLD HIM WE COULD GET
A DEAD ONE FROM THE PET STORE,

BUT HE SAID,
"WHERE'S THE FUN IN THAT?"

- THAT'S MESSED UP.

- YEAH, IT'S ALSO AN INDICATOR
IN THE TRIAD OF SOCIOPATHY.

ANIMAL CRUELTY.

- JAKE, WHY DIDN'T
YOU STOP HIM?

- I TRIED.
IF IT WEREN'T FOR ME,

HE WOULD HAVE DONE IT
TO OUR CAT.

- HE WOULD NEVER HURT ANYBODY.

THAT OTHER BOY, JAKE, HE
MUST HAVE GOADED HIM INTO IT.

- DO YOU KNOW IF HUNTER
IS SEXUALLY ACTIVE?

- OF COURSE NOT.

HE'S 14.

HE'S JUST A BABY.

- HELLO, BREE.

NICE OF YOU TO SHOW UP.

- WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?

- WHOA!

- NO, YOU TELL THEM THAT
I DIDN'T RAISE YOU THIS WAY!

- ARE YOU IN THE HABIT
OF SMACKING YOUR CHILD AROUND?

- NO, HER WEAPON OF CHOICE
IS A VERBAL TONGUE LASHING.

- SIT DOWN.

- WHEN I GOT OUT OF LINE,

MY MOTHER BEAT ME
WITH A BELT.

MAYBE I SHOULD
HAVE SPANKED HIM.

- WELL, ACTUALLY, STUDIES
LINK CORPORAL PUNISHMENT

TO INCREASED VIOLENCE
AND LOWERED IQs.

- WELL, I GOT WHIPPED PLENTY,

AND I'M A MARKETING EXECUTIVE.

- SHE THINKS THIS
IS ALL ABOUT HER.

- NO, IT IS ABOUT
YOUR FATHER

ABANDONING US
WHEN YOU WERE A BABY.

- MRS. MAZELON, YOUR SON
HAS BEEN VERY ANXIOUS

TO TELL US HIS SIDE
OF THE STORY,

SO MAYBE WE SHOULD
HEAR HIM OUT.

- OKAY.
- GREAT, HAVE A SEAT.

IF I COULD JUST GET YOU
TO INITIAL AFTER EACH LINE.

HERE.

YOUR SON HAS THE RIGHT
TO REMAIN SILENT.

AND ANYTHING HE SAYS CAN
AND WILL BE USED AGAINST HIM

IN A COURT OF LAW.

- WELL, IT'S NOT GONNA
COME TO THAT, IS IT?

- WELL, IF HE'S COOPERATIVE,

WE'LL MAKE SURE THAT THE D.A.
HEARS ABOUT IT.

- THE D.A.?

IF ANYONE'S GONNA PUNISH HIM,
IT'LL BE ME.

- AND IF YOU CANNOT
AFFORD AN ATTORNEY,

ONE WILL BE PROVIDED
FOR YOU.

- NO.

HUNTER, LET'S GO.

- WHERE DO YOU THINK
YOU'RE GOING?

- HOME,
TO DEAL WITH THIS MYSELF.

- UH, YOU'RE FREE TO GO.

HUNTER HERE IS NOT.

- WELL, I'M NOT LEAVING
WITHOUT HIM.

- WHY, THAT'S SWEET OF YOU,
BREE.

- SHUT UP!

AND I TOLD YOU
NOT TO CALL ME THAT.

I'M YOUR MOTHER.

- MRS. MAZELON,
HUNTER IS NOT LEAVING.

HE'S UNDER ARREST,
DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT?

- YOU'RE MAKING A MOUNTAIN
OUT OF A MOLE HILL.

- EVERYTHING IN MY BACKPACK
WAS FOR A SCIENCE PROJECT.

- I'M CALLING AN ATTORNEY.

- HE CAN MEET HIM
AT ARRAIGNMENT.

- I CAN'T CHARGE HIM
WITH A SEX CRIME.

- HE BROKE INTO
ANNIE'S APARTMENT

WITH A NINJA-GRADE
BUTTERFLY KNIFE,

DUCT TAPE, AND PANTYHOSE.

- I DON'T MAKE HIM
TO BE A CROSS-DRESSER.

HE HOSE WAS FOR
A FACE MASK.

- HE INTENDED TO RAPE
ANNIE MEYERS.

- I KNOW IT AND YOU KNOW IT,

BUT I CAN'T PRESENT
A THOUGHT CRIME TO THE JURY.

- SO CHARGE HIM WITH
THE CRIMES WE DO HAVE HIM ON.

MAKE ENROLLMENT IN
A SEX OFFENDER TREATMENT PROGRAM

A CONDITION FOR ANY PLEA
YOU GIVE HIM.

- IF IT EVEN COMES TO THAT.

HE'S 14.
THIS IS HIS FIRST OFFENSE.

- NO, IT ISN'T.
WE CHECKED WITH THE SCHOOL.

TWO MONTHS AGO,
HE GRABBED A TEACHER'S BREASTS.

- SHE WANTED HIM EXPELLED,

BUT HIS MOTHER
MADE IT GO AWAY.

- IS THE TEACHER WILLING
TO COME FORWARD?

- WE TRIED. NO.

- THERE WERE NO CONSEQUENCES
ON THAT ONE.

YOU LET HIM SKATE ON THIS,
WE WILL HAVE FUTURE VICTIMS.

- GUYS, I WON'T EVEN
BE THE ONE TRYING THIS.

HE'S A MINOR.
IT'S FAMILY COURT.

- FIRST-DEGREE BURGLARY
WITH A DEADLY WEAPON,

THE CUT-OFF IS 14.

YOU CAN CHARGE HIM
AS AN ADULT.

- DOCKET ENDING 0589.

THE CHARGES ARE BURGLARY ONE,

CRIMINAL TRESPASS TWO,

CRIMINAL POSSESSION
OF A WEAPON FOUR,

POSSESSION OF BURGLAR'S TOOLS.

- ALSO POSSESSION OF ALCOHOL
BY A PERSON UNDER 21.

- WELL UNDER 21, I SEE.

- THE PEOPLE ARE CLEARLY ABUSING
THEIR DISCRETION, YOUR HONOR.

IT'S A TRAVESTY THIS CASE
HASN'T BEEN PETITIONED

OVER TO FAMILY COURT.

- THE FELONY COUNT
MAKES SUPREME COURT

THE PROPER VENUE FOR AN
ALLOCATION OF YOUTHFUL OFFENDER.

- LET'S MOVE THIS ALONG WHILE
WE'RE ALL RELATIVELY YOUNG.

HOW DO YOU PLEAD?

- NOT GUILTY, YOUR HONOR.

NOBODY'S EVEN LET ME TELL
MY SIDE OF THE STORY YET.

- AS YOUR ATTORNEY
CAN EXPLAIN TO YOU,

YOU'LL BE AFFORDED
THAT OPPORTUNITY AT TRIAL.

THE PEOPLE ARE ASKING FOR?

- DETENTION TO
A JUVENILE FACILITY.

- THIS CHILD IS HARDLY
A FLIGHT RISK.

HIS MOTHER'S IN COURT AND WILL
SEE TO IT THAT HE COMPLIES.

- HE HAS A TOTAL LACK
OF RESPECT FOR AUTHORITY.

HE STRUGGLES WITH IMPULSE
CONTROL AND SUBSTANCE ABUSE.

- SPURIOUS ALLEGATIONS
THAT HAVE NO BEARING

ON WHETHER
HE'LL RETURN TO COURT.

- BAIL IS SET AT $5,000,
CASH OR BOND.

- IN THAT CASE, I ASK
THAT AN ORDER OF PROTECTION

BE GRANTED
TO THE COMPLAINANT,

ANNIE MEYERS,

BARRING ANY CONTACT
BY THE DEFENDANT.

- SO GRANTED.

- I'M THE ONE WHO NEEDS
A PROTECTION ORDER.

I WAS MOLESTED.

- BY WHOM?

- THE CREEPY GUY AT
THE PRECINCT WHERE THEY TOOK ME.

DETECTIVE STABLER.

- HUNTER ACCUSED ELLIOT
OF WHAT?

IN OPEN COURT?

WHY DIDN'T YOU CALL ME
AFTER ARRAIGNMENT?

OKAY, YEAH.
THANKS FOR THE HEADS-UP.

- HEY, I'M GONNA NEED
TO TAKE AN HOUR LUNCH

TO MEET WITH THE PRESCHOOL
FOR ELI.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT,
PRESCHOOL?

WHAT'S UP?

- UH, HUNTER MAZELON
PULLED A LITTLE STUNT

IN FRONT OF JUDGE RIDENOUR
AT ARRAIGNMENT YESTERDAY.

- YEAH, THAT DOESN'T
SURPRISE ME.

- HE CLAIMED
THAT YOU MOLESTED HIM.

- WHAT'D RIDENOUR DO?

- NOTHING.

HE SET A LOW BAIL,
WHICH BREE POSTED.

- SO THE LITTLE PSYCHOPATH
IS FREE.

- ELLIOT, DON'T DO
ANYTHING STUPID.

LET ME JUST TALK TO THE MOM.
- DON'T.

IT'S NOT YOUR CAREER
HE'S SCREWING WITH.

- HE'S A MESSED-UP KID
IN SERIOUS TROUBLE.

THIS IS OBVIOUSLY
A DESPERATE HAIL MARY.

- NO, IT WASN'T.

HE WAS PLANNING THIS
FROM THE BEGINNING.

THAT LITTLE RUNT
SET ME UP.

- WHEN? I WAS WITH YOU
THE WHOLE TIME.

- WHEN WE WERE WAITING
FOR HIS MOTHER TO SHOW UP,

I BROUGHT HIM DOWN
TO THE YOUTH OFFICE.

ALL OF A SUDDEN THIS KID
STARTS HOWLING

THAT I'M GRABBING
HIS PACKAGE.

- DID YOU WRITE IT UP?

- HE LAUGHED IT OFF AS A JOKE.

I FORGOT ABOUT IT.

- THIS IS OBVIOUSLY
GONNA WORK OUT.

YOU'RE INNOCENT.
- THAT DOESN'T MATTER.

AS SOON AS YOU'RE SMEARED
WITH SOMETHING LIKE THAT,

THE STINK DOESN'T GO AWAY.

- ELLIOT, YOU HAVE
TO GO THROUGH PROPERS.

YOU CANNOT CONFRONT
THIS KID RIGHT NOW.

- I'M NOT, OKAY?

I KNOW HOW THIS WORKS.

I'M GONNA GO DOWN TO I.A.B.,
SET IT RIGHT WITH THEM

BEFORE THOSE SONS OF BITCHES
TRY AND MAKE IT PUBLIC.

SO HOW'D YOUR TWISTED LITTLE
FAIRY TALE PLAY WITH I.A.B.?

- STAY AWAY FROM MY SON,
YOU PERVERT.

- YOU KNOW HE MADE IT UP.

- YOU KNOW, I SAW YOUR FILE
ON LIEUTENANT TUCKER'S DESK.

IT WAS PRETTY THICK.

HOW MANY OTHER GUYS HAVE YOU
BEEN A LITTLE TOO FRIENDLY WITH?

- HAS YOUR SON EVER BEEN TAUGHT
HIS ACTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES?

- HUNTER, LET'S GO.

- NO, WHY DON'T WE STAY HERE

AND LISTEN TO SOME
MORE PARENTING ADVICE

FROM A CHILD MOLESTER.

- YOU LET HIM LIE AND CHARM
HIS WAY OUT OF TROUBLE.

YOU'RE NOT DOING HIM
ANY FAVORS.

- LIEUTENANT TUCKER,
THIS GUY'S STALKING ME NOW.

- I WAS ON MY WAY TO SEE YOU.

- FUNNY,
I DIDN'T SEND FOR YOU.

- WELL, I THOUGHT
I'D SAVE YOU THE TROUBLE.

- WE'VE BEEN TRYING TO LEAVE,
BUT THAT MAN WON'T LET US.

- STABLER, MY OFFICE.

I KNOW YOU'RE
NOT STUPID ENOUGH

TO INTIMIDATE A WITNESS
IN MY FRONT YARD.

- AND I KNOW
YOU'RE NOT DIM ENOUGH

TO BELIEVE ANYTHING THAT
LITTLE SOCIOPATH FED YOU.

- YOU KNOW, YOU'RE ENTITLED
TO A LAWYER.

- I WAIVE THAT RIGHT.

IT'S A SETUP.

IT'S RETALIATION.

- WELL, THAT MIGHT
HOLD MORE WEIGHT, DETECTIVE,

IF YOU HADN'T BEEN
IN THIS HOT SEAT BEFORE.

WHAT IS IT, I MEAN,
HOW MANY TIMES IS IT NOW?

- OKAY, WAIT A MINUTE.

IT'S ABOUT MY TEMPER
AGAINST PEDOPHILES.

- MAYBE YOU STAYED AT
THE DANCE TOO LONG, DETECTIVE.

WHAT'S THE NIETZSCHE QUOTE?

"THOSE WHO FIGHT MONSTERS,

BE CAREFUL LEST YOU
BECOME A MONSTER."

- I DON'T TOUCH CHILDREN.

I PROTECT THEM.

- HOW MANY PERPS HAVE SAID
THOSE EXACT SAME WORDS TO YOU?

AT YOUR PRECINCT
SATURDAY LAST,

DID YOU ESCORT HUNTER MAZELON

INTO AN UNOCCUPIED
WINDOWLESS OFFICE?

- FOLLOWING PROTOCOL.

- SO YOU ADMIT YOU WERE
ALONE WITH THIS MINOR.

HE WAS HANDCUFFED.
- HE WAS UNDER ARREST.

- YOU WANTED HIM
TO KNOW THE TRAUMA

HE PUT HIS VICTIM THROUGH.

- YOU'RE AN IDIOT.

- YOU SHOVED HIM
AGAINST A WALL,

MAKING MENTION
OF A CAVITY SEARCH.

- NO, THAT WAS
HIS LAME JOKE.

- YOU CAME UP BEHIND HIM.
- TO UNCUFF HIM.

- YOU SLID YOUR HANDS
BETWEEN HIS LEGS.

- YOU'VE BEEN WATCHING
TOO MUCH PORN.

- HUNTER CRIED OUT FOR HELP,
HE ASKED YOU TO STOP,

SAYING STOP TOUCHING
HIS JUNK.

- HE WAS SETTING ME UP!

- THEN WHY DIDN'T
YOU REPORT HIM FIRST?

- BECAUSE IT WAS
AN ASININE PRANK

BY A 14-YEAR-OLD PUNK

THAT ONLY A MORON
WITH AN AXE TO GRIND

WOULD EVER BELIEVE.

THE DOOR WAS WIDE OPEN.

- I KNOW.

THAT'S WHY
WE HAVE A WITNESS.

- NELSON.
WHAT HAPPENED?

- TELL YOUR PARTNER
I WAS NEVER LOOKING

TO GET CAUGHT UP IN THIS.

- TRUST ME, WE KNOW HOW
THE RAT SQUAD WORKS.

WHAT DID YOU TELL THEM?
- THE TRUTH.

- THEN THEY KNOW
IT'S A BOGUS CLAIM.

- LOOK, EVERY DRUG BUST
I EVER MADE

CLAIMED I PLANTED THE EVIDENCE,
SO I FEEL THAT.

- GOOD, SO YOU
EXPLAINED TO TUCKER

THAT ELLIOT'S BEING SET UP.

- ALL I COULD TELL HIM
WAS WHAT I HEARD

AND WHAT I SAW.
I COULDN'T LIE.

- WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU SAW?

- YOUR PARTNER
BACKING UP OFF THE KID

WHEN HE HEARD ME
COME BEHIND HIM.

- YOU SAW THAT HE WAS JUST
UNCUFFING THE KID.

- I COULDN'T SEE HIS HANDS
FROM MY ANGLE.

- YOU LET THIS KID PLAY YOU.

- ALL I KNOW IS AFTER
I TALKED TO I.A.B.

I GOT STUCK ON
COP-IN-A-BOX DUTY,

WHICH I'M LATE FOR NOW.

I'M DONE TALKING.

- I DON'T WANT ANYBODY
HARASSING OFFICER NELSON.

- FOR WHAT,
BACKING THIS CON ARTIST?

NAH, GIVE HIM
A COMMENDATION.

- THE ONLY ONE GETTING HARASSED
AROUND HERE IS ELLIOT.

- AND IT GOES
WITHOUT SAYING

THAT YOU CAN'T GET NEAR
THIS KID AGAIN.

- THAT'S WHY HE PULLED
THIS STUNT,

SO I COULDN'T DO MY JOB,

AND YOU'RE PLAYING
RIGHT INTO IT.

- THE DEFENSE
WOULD HAVE A FIELD DAY

WITH ANY NEW DIRT
YOU DUG UP ON HIM.

- THEY'D CLAIM THAT YOU PLANTED
EVIDENCE FOR REVENGE.

- AND AS FOR YOU,
LET MUNCH AND FIN KNOW

THAT WHATEVER YOU'RE DOING
HAS TO BE 100% ABOVEBOARD.

IT'S GONNA BE SCRUTINIZED.

- SINCE WHEN
IS THAT A PROBLEM?

- THIS KID TRIED
TO DIRTY UP ONE OF OUR OWN.

WE KNOW WHAT
HIS TACTICS ARE,

AND WE'VE GOT TO BE SMARTER.

- SO NOW ANY SCUMBAG PERP
IN CUSTODY

LOOKING TO CUT A DEAL
CAN YELL "BAD TOUCH"?

- MY CLIENT WOULD BE AMENABLE
TO DROPPING HIS CASE

IF YOU DROP YOURS.

- BLACKMAIL.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

- HIS WORDS, NOT MINE.

HE'S A KID, SHERRI.

THE FINER SHADINGS
OF THE LAW ESCAPE HIM.

- I'LL BE SURE AND PASS THAT
ALONG TO INTERNAL AFFAIRS.

- IT'S HIS FIRST OFFENSE.

- I WOULD LIKE
FOR IT TO BE HIS LAST.

- WHAT, BY TAKING AWAY
HIS CHILDHOOD?

LET'S DISCUSS A PLEA.

- PASS.

- WELL, THEN
YOU'D HAVE BEEN BETTER

TRYING HIM IN FAMILY COURT.

NO JURY THERE.

- AND NO RECORD
AFTER HE GETS OUT.

- SUPREME COURT
ONLY GIVES HIM A RECORD

IF THE JURY CONVICTS.

- YOU DO REALIZE HE'S GUILTY.

- YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS
TO GET A JURY TO CONVICT

WHEN THERE'S NO VICTIM?

- WE HAVE A VICTIM,
ANNIE MEYERS.

- WHO ON CROSS-EXAMINATION
I WILL ASK

IF HUNTER LAID A FINGER ON,

AND UNLESS
SHE PERJURES HERSELF,

HER ANSWER WILL BE NO.

- I'M NOT LETTING
A FUTURE TED BUNDY SKATE.

- FIRST OFFENSE, SHERRI.
14 YEARS OLD.

HOW DO YOU THINK
THE JURY WILL FIND?

WE WORK OUT A DEAL,
WE CAN AT LEAST STIPULATE

THAT HE GETS SOME HELP.

[phone rings]

[ringing continues]

IT'S THE PHONE.
- NO, NO, NO.

- COME ON, ELLIOT.
DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT.

- COME ON.

- OH, SURPRISE, SURPRISE,
IT'S YOUR OFFICE WIFE.

HEY, LIV.

I DON'T KNOW
IF ELLIOT TOLD YOU,

BUT HE'S TAKING
A PERSONAL DAY TODAY.

- YES, I AM.
- MM-HMM.

WHAT DOES THAT
HAVE TO DO WITH ELLIOT?

DOES HE NEED
TO APPEAR IN COURT?

HE DOESN'T?

THAT'S GOOD.

OKAY, I'LL GIVE HIM
THE MESSAGE.

BYE, LIV.

- WHAT'S THAT ABOUT?

- GOOD NEWS.

LIV THINKS THAT YOU'RE
OFF THE HOOK

ON A TRUMPED-UP
MOLESTATION CHARGE

THAT YOU NEVER BOTHERED
TO TELL ME ABOUT.

- SOME LOWLIFE KID
ANGLING FOR A DEAL.

WHY'D IT GO AWAY?

- I GUESS YOUR A.D.A.
HAS A SOFT SPOT FOR YOU.

SHE'S LETTING HIM PLEAD OUT.

- ARE YOU AWARE,
MR. MAZELON,

THAT AN ADOLESCENT'S BRAIN
DOESN'T FINISH DEVELOPING

UNTIL INTO HIS 20s?

- NO, BUT THAT'S
COOL TO KNOW, YOUR HONOR.

- YOUR LACK OF CHARACTER

AND DEMONSTRABLY POOR
DECISION-MAKING CAPABILITIES

NEED NOT BE LIFELONG
HANDICAPS.

- ALSO GOOD TO KNOW.

- AS A CONDITION
OF THE AGREEMENT,

YOU HAVE TO ALLOCUTE
TO YOUR CRIMES.

LET'S HEAR IT.

- "ON FRIDAY, APRIL 29TH,

I UNLAWFULLY ENTERED
THE HOME OF ANNIE MEYERS."

I WAS TOTALLY WASTED, AND
I HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WAS DOING.

- SKIP THE EDITORIALIZING,
MR. MAZELON.

IF YOU CAN'T TAKE RESPONSIBILITY
FOR YOUR ACTIONS--

- WHAT THE HELL
ARE YOU DOING?

- NOT THE TIME, ELLIOT.

- DON'T LET HIM DO THIS.
CALL FOR A RECESS.

- IS THERE A PROBLEM,
COUNSELOR?

- WE NEED TO CALL A RECESS,
YOUR HONOR, PLEASE.

- WE HAVE A RESTRAINING ORDER
AGAINST THAT MAN.

- HE'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE

WITHIN 500 FEET
OF MY CLIENT.

- I AM JUST TRYING TO PREVENT

A MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE
HERE, YOUR HONOR.

- I WANT HIM ARRESTED.

- I DON'T APPRECIATE YOU
DISRUPTING MY COURT, DETECTIVE.

COURT OFFICER,

PLEASE ESCORT HIM OUT.

CONTINUE, MR. MAZELON.

- I'M SORRY, HE MADE ME
FORGET WHERE I WAS.

- NAKED IN MISS MEYERS BED.

- LOOK, I'M NOT
MAKING ANY EXCUSES,

BUT AT THAT POINT
I WAS SO WASTED

I HAD NO IDEA
WHAT I WAS DOING.

- NO REMORSE WHATSOEVER.

LIED THROUGH HIS TEETH.
EVERYBODY JUST DRANK IT UP.

ANOTHER WHEN YOU GOT A CHANCE.

- NOT DEFENDING WEST,

BUT WHAT IF SHE CUT THE DEAL
TO COVER YOUR--

- THEN SHE'S AN IDIOT.

- WE'VE BEEN BURNING THROUGH
A LOT OF A.D.A.S AROUND HERE.

MAYBE SHE JUST
WANTED US TO LIKE HER.

- AS BITCHING AS IT WOULD BE
TO HANG OUT WITH THE COOL KIDS,

I DIDN'T DO IT FOR YOU.

- SO WHAT'D HE END UP GETTING?

- THREE YEARS.
- REALLY?

[cell phone rings]
- SUSPENDED BUT ANY VIOLATION

RESULTS IN
MANDATORY DETENTION.

- SO NOTHING?

- 50 HOURS COMMUNITY SERVICE,

ALCOHOL TREATMENT CLASSES,

AND ENROLLMENT IN
A SEX OFFENDER THERAPY PROGRAM.

IF I HAD ROLLED
THE DICE AND LOST,

HE WOULD BE OUT THERE
WITH NO SUPERVISION.

- OKAY, I GOTTA ROLL.
MUNCH SAYS WE GOT A CASE.

- I'LL DRIVE.

- HE SAID YOU'D BETTER
STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE.

[police radio traffic]

- WHAT HAPPENED?

- I SEE YOU GOT MY MESSAGE.

RAPE VICTIM,
MADELINE HARRIS, 50s,

LOOKS LIKE A BUSINESSWOMAN.

SKIRT HIKED UP,
THROAT SLIT.

- ANY WITNESSES?

- THE WINO HER KILLER
PLOWED INTO

WHEN HE WAS HIGHTAILING
IT OUT OF THERE,

HE SAID HE WAS DRESSED
ALL IN BLACK,

REEKED OF WHISKEY,

AND HAD PANTYHOSE
PULLED OVER HIS FACE.

- IT'S HIM.

- WE DON'T KNOW THAT.

- THE WITNESS
SAID HE WAS SLENDER, 5'10",

DARK HAIR,
LOOKED LIKE A KID.

- IT'S HUNTER MAZELON.

HE'S PISSED OFF
AT THE CONDITIONS

THEY PLACED HIM UNDER.

- OR HE WAS CELEBRATING.

- WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?

- YOU WERE NOTIFIED THE
RESTRAINING ORDER WAS VACATED?

- RIGHT, FOR LACK OF MERIT.

SO NOW A MOLESTER
CAN JUST COME INTO MY HOUSE

AND HARASS MY SON
IN HIS OWN HOME.

THAT'S JUST GREAT
FOR THE VICTIM.

- ACTUALLY, I'M HERE TO
INTRODUCE YOU TO MR. SAWICKI.

THIS IS HUNTER'S
PROBATION OFFICER.

- WE'RE NOT MEETING
UNTIL NEXT WEDNESDAY, THOUGH.

- I FIND SURPRISE VISITS
TO BE MORE ENLIGHTENING.

- HE'S HERE TO CONFIRM
HUNTER'S COMPLIANCE.

- HUNTER WAS GIVEN
A CURFEW OF 7:00.

HE IS HOME, ISN'T HE?

- YES, OF COURSE HE IS.

GOD, AS IF HIS DAY
HASN'T BEEN HARD ENOUGH.

- DO YOU KNOW WHERE HE WAS
EARLIER THIS EVENING?

- YES, RIGHT HERE.

- HE HASN'T BEEN OUT AT ALL?

- NO, HE HAD A HEADACHE,

AND SO HE WENT HOME
RIGHT AFTER DINNER.

HUNTER, THERE'S SOME PEOPLE
HERE TO SEE YOU.

- YOU'RE SURE HE'S IN THERE?

- POSITIVE.

WAKE UP!

- MAYBE HE CAN'T HEAR YOU
OVER THE MUSIC.

- THIS ISN'T FUNNY!

I SWEAR, HUNTER,
SO HELP ME,

IF I HAVE TO KNOCK
THIS DOOR DOWN--

[front door opens]

[rattling]

- WELL, WELL, WELL,
WHERE'D YOU COME FROM?

- DETECTIVE STABLER,

YOU JUST COULDN'T
STAY AWAY, COULD YOU?

NOT THAT I'M NOT FLATTERED,

BUT, DUDE, YOU REALLY
GOTTA GIVE THIS UP.

- PUT THE KNIFE DOWN.

- THIS?

- DROP IT NOW.

- UM, I DON'T UNDERSTAND.

- WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?

- I LOCKED MYSELF
OUT OF MY BEDROOM.

I USUALLY USE MY POCKET KNIFE
TO OPEN IT UP,

BUT HE TOOK THAT
AWAY FROM ME,

SO THIS SHOULD WORK.

- GET YOUR HANDS OFF MY SON.

- NOW WHEN AN OFFICER TELLS
YOU TO DROP A WEAPON, DO IT.

- IT'S NOT A WEAPON, MAN.
GOD.

WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO,
SHOOT ME?

- WHERE YOU BEEN, SON?

- OUT.
GETTING SOME AIR.

IS THAT A CRIME?

- FOR YOU, YEAH, IT IS.
YOU KNOW THE RULES.

YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED OUT
AFTER SUNDOWN.

- I WAS ON MY OWN ROOF
FOR, LIKE, TEN MINUTES.

- REALLY?

YOUR MOTHER HASN'T
SEEN YOU FOR HOURS.

- YEAH, WELL,
I WAS IN MY ROOM ALL NIGHT.

ALL SHE HAD TO DO
WAS KNOCK.

DON'T SHOOT,
IT'S NOT A WEAPON.

- HUNTER, YOUR PROBATION
OFFICER IS HERE

TO CHECK IN ON YOU.

- YEAH, WELL,
HE CAN CHECK AWAY.

I DON'T HAVE
ANYTHING TO HIDE.

- CHEERY.

- I LIKE IT.

- THOSE CLOTHES YOU'RE
WEARING DON'T EVEN FIT YOU.

- WELL, YOU
CERTAINLY KNOW HOW

TO MAKE A GUY
FEEL SELF-CONSCIOUS.

- MRS. MAZELON,
ARE THOSE THE SAME CLOTHES

HE WAS WEARING
THE LAST TIME YOU SAW HIM?

- I DIDN'T SEE WHAT
HE CHANGED INTO AFTER COURT.

- ARE THEY EVEN HIS?

- YES, THEY'RE HIS.
- RIGHT.

AND I SUPPOSE HE DOESN'T
APPEAR INTOXICATED

TO YOU, EITHER.

- [scoffs]

I AM SOBER AS A JUDGE.

- YOU KNOW SOBRIETY IS
A CONDITION OF HIS PROBATION?

- I WANT YOU TO BLOW
IN THIS THING, PLEASE.

- [chuckles] UM.

ARE YOU REALLY GONNA LET THEM
DO THIS TO ME?

- IT'LL BE FINE.
YOU WEREN'T DRINKING.

- [blows]

I HAD COUGH SYRUP EARLIER.
JUST SAYING.

- MM-HMM.

IT WOULDN'T GIVE YOU A .09.

- WELL, NO LYING
YOUR WAY OUT OF THIS ONE.

YOU JUST VIOLATED
YOUR PROBATION.

- WHY ARE YOU
SO OBSESSED WITH HIM?

- WHAT IS THIS
REALLY ABOUT?

- PLACE HIM UNDER ARREST.

- NO, I DIDN'T KNOW
HOW BAD HIS PROBLEM WAS,

AND I AM GETTING HIM HELP.

PLEASE, YOU CAN'T REALLY
TAKE HIM IN, CAN YOU?

- WHY DIDN'T PROBATION
HAUL HIS ASS IN LAST NIGHT?

- WELL, IF THE KID WAS
ON PAROLE, HE COULD HAVE.

PROBATION HAS
A HIGHER STANDARD.

CAN'T MAKE A SUMMARY ARREST.
THE HEARING'S FRIDAY.

- YEAH, BY WHICH TIME
HIS VICTIM WILL BE THE SPECIAL

ON THE WORM BUFFET.

- HUSBAND'S DESTROYED.
WORKED WITH ME FOR OVER AN HOUR.

NO CONNECTION TO HUNTER.
- PROBABLY ISN'T ONE.

HIS INTENDED VICTIM, ANNIE,
WAS A CRIME OF OPPORTUNITY.

- KID GOT LOADED
AFTER HE GOT OUT OF COURT.

IT WAS MADELINE'S BUM LUCK
OF PASSING HIM IN THAT ALLEY.

- WELL, HE DITCHED
THE MURDER WEAPON

SOMEWHERE BETWEEN
THE SCENE AND HOME.

MOM'S COVERING FOR HIM,

BUT SOMEONE GAVE HIM A CHANGE
OF CLOTHES ALONG THE WAY.

- OR HE STOPPED BY
A LAUNDROMAT

AND PULLED SOMEBODY'S CLOTHES
OUT OF THE DRYER.

KID'S SMART.

- HE DIDN'T GET THAT
FROM HIS MOM.

IS THERE ANY WAY WE CAN GET
HER TO COOPERATE?

- WITH THE BLINDERS
SHE'S WEARING,

NOT WITHOUT
STRONGER EVIDENCE.

- YOU DO AN AUTOPSY
ON MADELINE HARRIS?

- JUST FINISHED.

- WE WERE HOPING YOU FOUND
A SMOKING GUN.

- OFFICIAL CAUSE OF DEATH
IS ASPHYXIATION.

- SURE SHE DIDN'T BLEED OUT

FROM THIS BIG, GAPING SLIT
ACROSS HER THROAT?

- YOUR PERPETRATOR
DIDN'T GO DEEP ENOUGH

FOR THE JUGULAR OR CAROTID.

HE SEVERED THE TRACHEA

AND NICKED THE INFERIOR
THYROID ARTERY,

WHICH BLED DOWN HER WINDPIPE
INTO HER LUNG.

- SHE CHOKED TO DEATH
ON HER OWN BLOOD.

HE HAD HER UP
AGAINST THE DUMPSTER

RAPING HER FROM BEHIND

WITH A STRAIGHTEDGE
TO HER THROAT.

SHE PROBABLY STRUGGLED,

CAUSING THESE GRAZING CUTS.

RAPIST PRESSES
THE KNIFE TIGHTER,

ACCIDENTALLY CUTTING INTO
THE TRACHEA.

- ACCIDENTALLY MY ASS.
THIS IS A HOMICIDE.

- AND LUCKILY FOR US,
A RAPE.

HE DIDN'T WEAR A CONDOM.

I'M RUNNING THE DNA NOW.

- IF WE ONLY HAD SOMETHING
TO COMPARE IT TO.

HUNTER'S PLEA DEAL

DIDN'T INCLUDE
A SAMPLE FOR THE DATABASE.

- PROBABLY LEFT IT
SOMEWHERE ELSE.

- HE NIGHTIE HE WAS CLUTCHING
TO HIS JOHNSON?

YEAH, I THREW THAT AWAY

THE NIGHT I FOUND HIM
IN MY BED WITH IT.

- SO, MISS MEYERS, THIS
CLOSET IS WHERE YOU FOUND

THE BACKPACK
AND THE WHISKEY?

- YEAH.

EW.

WHAT WAS HE DOING IN THERE?

- THE LEGAL TERM
IS HANGING HIMSELF.

- YOU LET ME KNOW THE SECOND
THEY CONFIRM IT'S HUNTER'S DNA.

- PROBABLY WON'T BE
TILL TOMORROW.

WHERE ARE YOU?

- I'M JUST MAKING SURE
THE BODY COUNT STAYS AT ONE.

- YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED
TO GO NEAR THE KID.

- I DON'T INTEND TO.

HE BEHAVES, I BEHAVE.

I GOTTA GO.

THAT'S NOT THE WAY HOME,
HUNTER.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

HUNTER.

- HEY, MAN,
THIS IS GETTING CREEPY.

DO YOU WANT ME TO HAVE TO
RENEW THAT RESTRAINING ORDER?

- YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO GO
STRAIGHT HOME AFTER SCHOOL.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?

- I'M FOLLOWING
COURT ORDERS.

- THE COURT ORDER YOU TO STALK
AND RAPE THE GIRL?

- NO.

THEY ORDERED ME TO DO THIS.

TEEN A.A.

HI, MY NAME IS HUNTER,
AND I'M AN ALCOHOLIC.

SO UNLESS YOU DON'T
WANT ME TO GET SOBER...

- DO YOU NEED A REMEDIAL
ENGLISH COURSE, ELLIOT?

HOW DO I MAKE
YOU UNDERSTAND THE WORDS

"STAY AWAY
FROM HUNTER MAZELON"?

- LOOK, I THOUGHT HE WAS
STALKING A NEW VICTIM.

- WELL, THAT MIGHT
HAVE HELPED YOUR CASE,

IF YOU HADN'T BEEN
SO ASS-REAMINGLY WRONG.

- HEY, GUYS, GUYS,

I HATE TO INTERRUPT
YOUR LITTLE LOVE FEST,

BUT THIS IS M.E. BIRCH.

- YOU'VE GOT THE RESULTS?

- WHILE I WAS WAITING
FOR THE SAMPLE FROM THE CLOSET,

I RAN THE DNA I FOUND IN YOUR
MURDER VICTIM THROUGH CODIS.

GOT A HIT ON FIVE
UNSOLVED RAPES IN OREGON.

- WELL, THEN HUNTER COULDN'T
HAVE KILLED MADELINE HARRIS.

- NO, NO,
IT WAS HUNTER ALL RIGHT.

THE DNA FROM THE CLOSET
JUST CAME BACK.

IT'S A DEFINITE MATCH
TO THE OTHERS.

- HE'S A 14-YEAR-OLD
SERIAL RAPIST.

- YOU HAVE A RIGHT
TO AN ATTORNEY.

IF YOU CANNOT AFFORD ONE,
ONE WILL BE PROVIDED FOR YOU.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND?
- YEAH, YEAH, YEAH.

- FYI, IT'S THE SAME
IN OREGON.

- NOT THAT THEY'LL GET A CRACK
AT YOU ANY TIME SOON.

- THAT'S GOOD,
I HATE OREGON.

DAD FOUGHT HARD FOR SUMMER
CUSTODY JUST TO IGNORE ME.

- THE FIVE WOMEN YOU RAPED
IN THE SUMMER

SHOULD HAVE GOT
HIS ATTENTION.

- HEY, SPEAKING OF FAMILY,

DO YOU HAVE A SISTER
WHO TEACHES HERE?

- NO. WHY?

- 'CAUSE THERE'S
A CALCULUS TEACHER

THAT LOOKS
A LOT LIKE YOU.

MAYBE I'LL HAVE HER
NEXT YEAR.

- NOT WHERE YOU'RE GOING.
WATCH YOUR HEAD.

- DID HE JUST THREATEN
MY HYPOTHETICAL SISTER?

- WHY ARE YOU HELL-BENT
ON DESTROYING MY SON?

- MRS. MAZELON, HAVE YOU EVEN
HEARD A WORD THAT WE'VE SAID?

- DO YOU KNOW
THAT HALF OF NYPD

IS TEARING UP MY APARTMENT?

- WELL, I TRUST THEY GAVE YOU
A COPY OF THE SEARCH WARRANT.

- OH, GOD, THIS IS
ALL ABOUT THE COMPLAINT

THAT WE FILED AGAINST HIM?

I GIVE UP.

WE'LL DROP IT.
JUST STOP THIS.

- YOU REALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND
ANY OF THIS, DO YOU?

YOU KNOW, MAYBE YOU NEED
TO SEE IT.

LOOK HERE.

THESE ARE THE WOMEN
THAT HUNTER ATTACKED

WHEN HE WAS IN OREGON
LAST SUMMER.

BELINDA YOLAND, 42.

SHE WAS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED
IN AN ELEVATOR.

TRINA RYDELL, 44.

SHE WAS DRAGGED
OFF OF A HIKING TRAIL

AND RAPED AT KNIFE-POINT.

- NOT BY HUNTER.

- TERESA CAUDILL

WAS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED
IN A PARKING GARAGE.

SHE WAS 39.

- NOW YOU'RE TRYING TO STICK

EVERY CRIME
IN THE COUNTRY ON HIM?

- AFTER HIS THIRD ATTACK,

THE PORTLAND P.D.
PUT TOGETHER A COMPOSITE.

DOES THAT LOOK FAMILIAR?

- THAT DOESN'T LOOK
ANYTHING LIKE HIM.

- WELL, HUNTER
THOUGHT IT DID.

AND THAT'S WHY HE WORE HOSE
FROM THAT POINT FORWARD.

- NILA STURM, SUSAN PERRY,
38 AND 50.

MADELINE HARRIS WAS 56.

- STOP IT.
IT WASN'T HUNTER.

- IT WAS.
WE HAVE HIS DNA.

HIS SPERM WAS IN
EACH ONE OF THOSE WOMEN.

- 20% OF ALL SEXUAL ASSAULTS
ARE COMMITTED BY TEENAGERS.

MOST OF THEIR VICTIMS
ARE PEOPLE THEIR OWN AGE

OR YOUNGER.

- NOW WHY IS HUNTER
SO FIXATED ON OLDER WOMEN?

WAS IT BECAUSE HE WAS
MOLESTED BY ONE?

- MAYBE A WOMAN
AROUND YOUR AGE.

- YOU'RE SICK.

I WOULD NEVER--

I'LL TAKE A POLYGRAPH
RIGHT NOW.

- RIGHT NOW WE HAVE
TO DEAL WITH HUNTER.

- WELL, THEY SAID
THAT HE WOULD BE HERE.

WHERE IS HE?

- NO, DON'T EXPECT US
ANYTIME SOON.

MIKASEN AND VITALIE HAD HIM
IN THE BACK OF THEIR CAR.

WE'RE FOLLOWING THEM.

NEXT THING YOU KNOW THE KID
COMES FLYING OUT THE WINDOW.

- I CAN'T BREATHE.

- YOU'RE LUCKY
TO BE ALIVE, IDIOT.

- SAID HE WAS GONNA BE SICK,
NEEDED SOME FRESH AIR.

- AND YOU OPENED THE WINDOW
FOR THIS CON ARTIST?

- I ONLY LOWERED IT
A LITTLE BIT.

I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS ENOUGH
FOR HIM TO SQUEEZE OUT OF.

HE WAS CUFFED.

I WAS DOING 20 MILES AN HOUR.

- I'M RIDING ALONG.

I DON'T CARE IF YOU BROKE
EVERY BONE IN YOUR BODY.

I GOT EYES ON YOU.

MEET US AT BELLEVUE.

- THE MOM'S ON HER WAY HERE,

UNLESS OF COURSE SHE STOPPED
TO FILE A LAWSUIT.

- GOOD NEWS FOR
THE CITY COFFERS IS,

THEY X-RAYED HIM,
NOTHING'S BROKEN.

- WHERE'S HUNTER?

I TOLD YOU NOT TO LET HIM
OUT OF YOUR SIGHT.

- THEY'RE GIVING HIM AN M.R.I.
TO MAKE SURE

HIS BRAIN'S NOT BLEEDING.

NO METAL'S ALLOWED IN THERE,

SO I HAD TO GET OUT
WITH MY GUN.

- SO HE'S UNCUFFED.

- HE'S STILL UNABLE TO MOVE
ANY OF HIS LIMBS.

THIS IS THE ONLY EXIT.

- WE TOLD THE TECH
TO LOCK HIMSELF IN THE BOOTH,

TO FLASH THE LIGHT
WHEN HE'S FINISHED

OR IF HUNTER TRIES ANYTHING.

- I DON'T LIKE IT.

WHERE THE HELL'S THE TECH?

- THE KID'S IN THE MACHINE
BUT IT'S STILL RUNNING.

- DAMN IT,
GET A DOCTOR.

LOCK DOWN THE HOSPITAL.

HUNTER'S WEARING WHATEVER
THIS TECH HAD ON.

- WE NEED A DOCTOR IN HERE NOW!

- WHERE THE HELL DID HE GO?

SON OF A BITCH.

- WHERE IS HE?

- WE NEED YOU TO TELL US.

- I DON'T KNOW!

- WHO DOES HE GO TO
WHEN HE'S IN TROUBLE?

- ME.
CERTAINLY NOT HIS FATHER.

[phone rings]

- ALL RIGHT,
IF IT'S HIM,

DON'T TIP HIM OFF
THAT WE'RE HERE.

[ringing continues]

- WHAT IF HE WON'T
STAY ON THE LINE?

- THE TRACE IS COMPUTERIZED.

JUST PICK IT UP
BEFORE YOU MISS HIM.

- TRUST ME, YOU WANT US
TO BE THE ONES WHO FIND HIM.

SPEAKER PHONE.

[beep]

- HELLO?

- HEY, BREE, WHAT'S UP?

- HUNTER.
HUNTER, WHERE ARE YOU?

- ARE THE COPS THERE?

- NO.

JUST COME HOME.

- YOU'RE SO DUMB.

YOU DON'T THINK
THEY'RE WATCHING?

- I DON'T KNOW.
ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?

THEY TOLD ME THAT YOU WERE
IN AN ACCIDENT.

- I'M FINE.
JUST A FEW BRUISES.

I HAD THOSE IDIOTS
BELIEVING I WAS PARALYZED.

- OH, HONEY,
YOU DON'T SOUND FINE.

YOUR SPEECH IS SLURRED.

- THAT'S BECAUSE I'VE BEEN
DRINKING, YOU DUMB COW.

- HE'S DRUNK.

- BREE, WHO ARE YOU
TALKING TO?

- TO YOU, BABY.

JUST COME HOME.

LET ME TAKE CARE OF YOU.

- RIGHT, 'CAUSE YOU ALWAYS
TOOK SUCH GREAT CARE OF ME.

YOU KNOW, YOU SHOULD
HAVE DONE SOMETHING,

AND NOW I HAVE
TO DO IT MYSELF.

- WHAT DO YOU MEAN, HUNTER?
WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

- BYE, BREE.

THANKS FOR SELLING ME OUT.

BYE, COPS.

I HOPE IT'S YOU,
DETECTIVE STABLER.

IF IT IS, I'M GONNA
DO YOUR JOB FOR YOU,

YOU GIANT DOUCHE.

- WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

HUNTER, PLEASE,
DON'T HURT YOURSELF.

[dial tone]

HUNTER.

- WHAT WAS HE TALKING ABOUT?

WHAT WAS
HE TALKING ABOUT?

- I DON'T KNOW.

- CALLING FROM A CELL PHONE,
BUT IT HAD GPS.

HE'S IN CHELSEA.

- [sobbing]

- ACCORDING TO THE GPS,
THAT'S HUNTER.

- SPARE CHANGE?

[coins rattle into cup]
- YOU GOT A PHONE ON YOU?

- DID YOU TAKE THAT
OFF THIS KID?

- NO, HE BORROWED IT
FROM ME.

- HOW MANY CALLS
DID THE KID MAKE?

- JUST ONE.

CALLED SOMEBODY A DOUCHE.

- DID YOU SEE WHERE HE WENT?

- NO.

BUT I GOT THE BETTER
PART OF THE DEAL.

HE GAVE ME THIS
TO BORROW IT.

- WE'RE COMING UP
ON 24 HOURS.

ANYTHING?

- WE CANVASSED THAT NEIGHBORHOOD
ALL NIGHT, NOTHING.

- SOMEBODY HAD TO GIVE HIM
THE WHISKEY.

- KNOWING HUNTER,
HE PROBABLY BOOSTED IT.

- HE'S GONNA DO SOMETHING
DRASTIC IF HE HASN'T ALREADY.

- A SITUATION THIS DESPERATE,

ANY CHANCE HE'S SUICIDAL?

- DON'T SAY THAT.

- MRS. MAZELON,
WE ASKED YOU TO STAY AT HOME

IN CASE HUNTER CALLED BACK.

- DON'T LET ANYTHING
HAPPEN TO HIM.

THIS ISN'T HIS FAULT.

IT'S MINE.

YOU WERE RIGHT.

HE WAS MOLESTED.

- WHY DON'T YOU HAVE A SEAT.

- ON THE PHONE HUNTER SAID
YOU SHOULD HAVE HELPED HIM,

THAT YOU DIDN'T
TAKE CARE OF HIM.

- WELL, HE WAS ONLY SEVEN.

AND IT TOOK ME MONTHS TO REALIZE
THAT SOMETHING WAS WRONG

AND THEN TO GET HIM
TO TELL ME ABOUT IT.

AND I SHOULD
HAVE FILED CHARGES,

BUT I DIDN'T WANT
ANYONE TO KNOW.

- WAS IT A FAMILY MEMBER,
HIS FATHER?

- NO.

IT WAS THE WOMAN
WHO BABYSAT HIM.

OH, THE THINGS
THAT SHE DID TO HIM,

THAT SHE MADE HIM
DO TO HER.

I CAN'T EVEN TALK ABOUT IT.

- AND HE NEVER GOT COUNSELING?

- NO, I JUST WANTED HIM
TO FORGET ABOUT IT

SO THAT HE COULD
BE NORMAL AGAIN.

- HUNTER SAID HE WAS GONNA
DO MY JOB FOR ME.

DOES HE KNOW WHERE
TO FIND THIS WOMAN?

- HE USED TO SPEND A LOT
OF TIME AT HER APARTMENT.

BUT THAT WAS SEVEN YEARS AGO.

HER NAME IS ELLEN HUFFNER.

- HUNTER.

- [groans]

- SVU PORTABLE TO CENTRAL.

I NEED A BUS AT
385 21ST STREET, APARTMENT 2-G.

- RELAX, YOU'RE HURT.
- ONE DECEASED, ONE WOUNDED.

- I DIDN'T KNOW YOU CARED.

I'M NOT HURT, JUST HUNG OVER.

- HE'S NOT SHOT?

- BLOOD'S ALL HERS.

- GET UP.

- THE OTHER WOMEN I HURT,

THAT WASN'T ME.

I DON'T KNOW WHY
I KEPT DOING THOSE THINGS.

- I DO.

- I WANTED TO STOP.

I THOUGHT
IF I CONFRONTED ELLEN

AND MADE HER TELL ME WHY
SHE DID THOSE THINGS TO ME,

I THOUGHT IT WOULD END.

BUT SHE WOULDN'T TELL ME.

AT LEAST SHE'LL NEVER
DO IT TO ANYONE ELSE.

NEITHER WILL I.

I THINK I'M GONNA
BE ALL RIGHT.

I THINK I'M GONNA
BE OKAY NOW.
