While investigating a serial rapist and killer case, an interview with a victim's daughter leads Olivia to believe that she may be looking for her own biological father.

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.

- I'M STARTING A PETITION
TO FORCE THIS PLACE TO GO GREEN.

- DON'T ROCK THE BOAT,
FRANKIE.

- BUT I READ ONLINE THAT



THE CHEMICALS THEY USE HERE
CAUSE THE BIG C.

- AND THE THREE PACKS A DAY YOU
SMOKE AIN'T DOING YOU NO HARM.

- WHOA, WHOA, WHOA!
- STOP THE LINE, YOU IDIOT.

[click, alarm blares]

- FEMALE, EARLY 20s.
SERIOUS VAGINAL TRAUMA.

UP TOP'S JUST AS BAD.

- PRACTICALLY
CUT HER HEAD OFF.

- JUGULAR AND CAROTID
WERE SEVERED.

C.O.D.'S EXSANGUINATION.

- WHERE ARE THE FIVE PINTS OF
BLOOD SHE'S MISSING?

- NO ONE FOUND IT ON SITE.

OF COURSE, IF SOMEBODY HERE
HAD DIRTY LAUNDRY TO CLEAN,

THERE WOULD BE NO PROBLEM.

- SHE'S GOT SMALL CUTS
AND PUNCTURE WOUNDS



ALL OVER HER BREASTS,
STOMACH, AND PELVIC AREA.

THIS GUY'S A REAL SADIST.

- WHAT'S WITH THE BINDINGS?
WHAT ARE THOSE?

- LOOKS LIKE SILK-WRAPPED
ELECTRICAL CORD...

FANCY DECORATORS USE.

- TIME OF DEATH?
- RIGOR'S ALMOST DISSIPATED.

I'D SAY TWO DAYS AGO.

I'LL KNOW MORE
AFTER THE AUTOPSY.

- ANYONE HERE
RECOGNIZE HER?

- SUPERVISOR SAYS
SHE'S NOT AN EMPLOYEE.

AND SHE WANTS TO KNOW WHEN SHE
CAN START THE MACHINES AGAIN.

- DO WE KNOW
WHERE THE LOAD CAME FROM?

- MERCY HOSPITAL.

- THIS WAS NO MERCY KILLING.

- THOSE OFFICERS SAID
I HAD TO TALK TO SVU.

SO WHAT THE HELL DID I DO?
- RAPED AND MURDERED THE GIRL

THAT YOU DROPPED OFF
AT THE LAUNDRY THIS MORNING.

- YOU'VE GOT
THE WRONG GUY.

- LET'S TALK ABOUT IT
AT THE PRECINCT.

- WAIT. W-WAS SHE
IN THE LOAD FROM MERCY?

- OH, FUNNY THAT YOU
WOULD KNOW THAT.

- LISTEN, ALL I DID THERE
WAS SIGN OFF ON THREE CARTS.

THE GUY ROLLED THEM OUT FOR ME
WHILE I HIT THE HEAD.

- WHAT TIME WAS THAT?

- AROUND 4:30 THIS MORNING.
- THEN HOW COME YOU DIDN'T

MAKE YOUR NEXT PICKUP ONLY
FIVE BLOCKS AWAY UNTIL 5:22?

GOT BLADDER PROBLEMS?

- IF YOU THINK I KILLED HER,
YOU'RE CRAZY.

- SAYS THE GUY
WHO WANTS US TO BELIEVE

HE TOOK A 50-MINUTE LEAK.

- OKAY, MY GIRLFRIEND JANICE
IS A NURSE AT MERCY.

I POPPED IN TO SAY HI.

IT WAS A LITTLE SLOW.

WE DUCKED INTO AN EMPTY ROOM,
TO, UH...

- PLAY DOCTOR?

- I SWEAR,
I DIDN'T HURT ANYBODY.

I JUST WANTED TO GET LAID.

- I WAS ON BREAK AT 4:30.

- GETTING PORKED
BY YOUR BOYFRIEND.

- ANOTHER NURSE
WAS COVERING FOR ME.

I DIDN'T ENDANGER
ANY OF MY PATIENTS.

- LIKE THIS ONE?
- SHE WASN'T MINE.

- WOULD YOUR BOYFRIEND HAVE

HAULED OUT A CORPSE
FOR ANYONE ELSE?

- NOT KNOWINGLY.

BUT JOE IN HOUSEKEEPING
HANDLES OVERNIGHT LAUNDRY.

KIND OF A CREEP.
MAYBE HE DUMPED THE BODY.

- LOVEBIRDS WEREN'T LYING.

JOE WAS ALL ALONE
WITH THE CART.

- SCHEDULE SAYS THAT LOAD OF
LAUNDRY CAME FROM PEDES.

NO WAY OUR JANE DOE
WAS A PATIENT THERE.

- MORGUE MISSING ANY BODIES?

- ALL DBs
PRESENT AND ACCOUNTED FOR.

- HOLD ON,
WHAT'S THIS GUY DOING?

- HOW THE HELL'D I MISS THAT?

- MAYBE YOU WERE
ON A DOUGHNUT RUN.

[cell phone rings]
- KILLER WAS DRIVING AROUND

LOOKING FOR
THE PERFECT DUMP SITE.

THEN HE HITS THE JACKPOT:
AN UNATTENDED LAUNDRY TRUCK.

- CAN YOU SEE THE PLATES?
- STABLER.

- ANGLE'S ALL WRONG.

- OKAY, A CAR THAT BOXY
HAS TO BE AN OLD VOLVO,

AND ONLY HALF OF NEW YORK
ARE DRIVING THEM.

IT'S GONNA BE HARD
TO I.D. THE OWNER.

- WELL, WE JUST GOT BETTER LUCK
WITH OUR VICTIM.

- SAMANTHA MILLERTON, 23.

- WHY IS SHE IN THE SYSTEM?

- LOITERING, RESISTING ARREST.
MAINLY POLITICAL RALLIES.

- LATEST COLLAR
WAS FOR TRESPASSING

AT THE GLOBE OIL HEADQUARTERS.

PROBABLY PROTESTING
THEIR LATEST OIL SPILL.

- SHE WORKED FOR
AN ENVIRONMENTAL GROUP?

- YEAH, IT'S AN OUTFIT CALLED
C.L.E.A.N.

COLLECTIVE LIVING ENVIRONMENT
OF ARTISTS FOR NATURE.

WORKS OUT OF AN OLD FACTORY
ON THE LOWER EAST SIDE.

ANY CORPORATE TARGETS ESPECIALLY
UNHAPPY WITH YOUR ARTWORK?

- ALL OF THEM.

BUT GLOBE OIL WENT BALLISTIC.

- HOW SO?

- I FILMED THIS DURING
OUR LAST PROTEST THERE.

THAT'S GLOBE OIL'S SLIMY CEO,
NICHOLAS TURNER.

- GET AWAY FROM ME!
STOP FILMING, NOW!

- NOT UNTIL YOU PAY TO CLEAN UP
THE HUNDREDS OF MILES

OF VIRGIN WILDERNESS
POLLUTED BY YOUR OIL SPILL.

- I PREFER TO GET THE TRASH
OFF MY OWN PROPERTY FIRST.

COLLECT THE GARBAGE.

[scuffling, protesters shouting]

- I'M GONNA SHOW THE WORLD WHAT
YOU'RE REALLY MADE OF, TURNER!

- WHAT WAS SAMANTHA
GOING TO SHOW THE WORLD?

- AN EFFIGY OF TURNER,

MADE OUT OF CRAP SHE FOUND
FROM HIS OWN TRASH.

NICHOLAS TURNER EMBODIES
THE EXCESSES OF THE SUPER-RICH.

THE FRAME
IS MADE FROM HIS EMPTY

CHATEAU LAFITE-ROTHSCHILD
WINE CRATES.

- SILK PAJAMA BOTTOMS STUFFED
WITH THE WALL STREET JOURNAL.

NOW, WHY THROW OUT
THE ITALIAN LOAFERS?

THEY LOOK BRAND-NEW.
- THEY'RE SLIGHTLY SCUFFED.

- OH, A VIAGRA BOTTLE
IN TURNER'S NAME.

OH, FOR HIS NOSE.
I GET THAT.

IT'S NICE.

- SAM WAS GOING TO DOUSE THIS
IN GLOBE OIL GASOLINE

AND LIGHT IT ON FIRE
AT OUR NEXT RALLY.

- AND, UH, NO MOUTH,

BECAUSE SHE WAS TIRED
OF HEARING TURNER'S LIES?

- SHE HADN'T FOUND THE PERFECT
PIECE OF GARBAGE YET.

- MAYBE SHE DID.
AT TURNER'S HOUSE.

SILK-WRAPPED
PINK ELECTRICAL CORDS

WOULD MAKE
A PERFECT PAIR OF LIPS.

- WHAT, DO YOU THINK
HE CAUGHT HER IN THE ACT

AND WANTED TO
TEACH HER A LESSON?

- THAT'S WIRING
FROM TWO LAMPS

MY WIFE HAS
IN HER DRESSING ROOM.

ONE BROKE,
SO I TOSSED THEM.

YOU CAN'T POSSIBLY THINK
I MURDERED THAT GIRL.

- WELL, WE HAVE IT
ON GOOD AUTHORITY

THAT SHE WAS AT YOUR PLACE
THE NIGHT SHE WAS MURDERED.

- I GOT HOME AROUND 2:00 A.M.
AFTER A FUNDRAISER

AND FOUND THAT TERRORIST
PICKING THROUGH MY REFUSE.

THIS WAS THE THIRD TIME
I'D CAUGHT HER ON MY PROPERTY.

- AND THIS TIME YOU MADE YOUR
PROBLEM GO AWAY PERMANENTLY?

- THAT WAS THE PLAN.
I CALLED THE POLICE.

- THERE'S NO RECORD OF HER
BEING ARRESTED THAT NIGHT.

- SHE TOOK OFF RUNNING
BEFORE THEY GOT THERE,

SCREECHING ABOUT HOW
MY CARBON FOOTPRINT WAS SO BIG

THERE WERE PLENTY OF PLACES
TO FIND DIRT ON ME.

- COULD SHE HAVE GONE DIGGING
IN YOUR DUMPSTER

HERE AT GLOBE OIL?

- CHECK WITH SECURITY.
AND BUGGER OFF.

- GLOBE OIL DOESN'T HAVE
A SECURITY CAMERA

IN THE GARBAGE AREA.

BUT A TIMES SQUARE CAM'S
AT 49TH AND BROADWAY.

- RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM
GLOBE OIL'S CORPORATE OFFICES.

- AND THERE SHE IS.

ONE HOUR AFTER LEAVING
NICHOLAS TURNER'S HOME.

- AND THAT'S WHEN OUR PERP
ARRIVED IN HIS VOLVO.

- UNFORTUNATELY, HIS CAR BLOCKS
OUR VIEW OF THE ATTACK.

FAST FORWARD.

[click]

Benson: HE BLITZED HER.

HE THREW HER IN THE BACK

AND TOOK OFF
WITHOUT ANYBODY SEEING IT.

- PERP HAD BALLS
DOING IT IN THE OPEN.

HE'S DONE THIS BEFORE.

- OH, SAME GUY, SAME CAR,
SAME HAT AND HOODIE

SHOWS UP TWO DAYS LATER
AT MERCY HOSPITAL,

AND HE DUMPS SAM'S BODY
IN THAT LAUNDRY CART.

- WE GET A PLATE THIS TIME?

- YEAH, FIN'S RUNNING IT.
- WE HIT A DEAD END.

CAR'S REGISTERED
TO A THOMAS GAMBEL, 64.

HE LIVED IN BROOKLYN UNTIL
HE DIED NINE MONTHS AGO.

- HEY, NEED A HAND?

- I GOT IT, THANKS.

- THOMAS GAMBEL?
HE LIVED HERE?

- YEAH, I'M HIS SON, JASON.

WHAT DO YOU WANT?

- THE VOLVO WAGON
STILL REGISTERED TO HIM.

- I ONLY INHERITED THE HOUSE.

MY...BROTHER, HENRY,
GOT THE CAR.

- HENRY.
WHERE CAN WE FIND HIM?

- HE WAS THE BLACK SHEEP
OF THE FAMILY.

WE HAVEN'T STAYED IN TOUCH.

I HAVE HIS ADDRESS INSIDE.
LET ME GET IT FOR YOU.

[lock clicks]

- DID HE JUST LOCK US OUT?

[jiggling doorknob]

- OKAY.
MR. GAMBEL?

OPEN THE DOOR.

[gunshots]

- SVU PORTABLE TO CENTRAL.
10-13.

SHOTS FIRED.

REQUEST BACKUP
AT 435 CARLTON AVENUE.

- GAMBEL, FREEZE!

- YOU CRACKED MY HEAD OPEN!

- 'CAUSE YOU
TRIED TO BLOW OURS OFF!

YOU'RE UNDER ARREST

FOR THE ATTEMPTED MURDER
OF A POLICE OFFICER.

- LET'S SEE
WHAT'S IN YOUR LITTLE BOX.

A BRACELET
MADE OUT OF BOTTLE CAPS.

THIS LOOKS LIKE
SAMANTHA'S WORK.

- YEAH, COULDN'T LEAVE YOUR
RAPE TROPHIES BEHIND?

- SAM WAS A TREE HUGGER.

I DON'T THINK SHE'D BE WEARING
ANYTHING MADE OUT OF IVORY.

SHE WAS SINGLE, SO THIS
ISN'T HER ENGAGEMENT RING.

I BET IT'S NOT HER BROOCH,
EITHER...

OR HER LACE HANDKERCHIEF.

- ALL THESE FROM
YOUR DIFFERENT VICTIMS?

- SON OF A BITCH
IS A SERIAL KILLER.

- WE GOT YOU ON
SAMANTHA MILLERTON'S MURDER.

SEE, OUR LAB FOUND
HER FINGERPRINT

ON ONE OF
THESE BOTTLE CAPS.

- WHO DID YOU KILL
FOR THAT ONE?

- THIS ONE LOOKS LIKE IT BELONGS
TO A LITTLE OLD LADY.

IS THAT HER LACE HANKY, TOO?

DO YOU LIKE DIDDLING GRANDMAS?

- "ALAN AND JOAN FOREVER."

YOU MADE SURE
THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

- I DIDN'T KILL ANYONE.

- WELL, YOU DID
A PRETTY GOOD JOB

TRYING TO TAKE US OUT
WITH YOUR .357.

- YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE A BETTER
JOB STASHING SAM'S BODY.

YOU SEE, THAT, WITH YOUR
LITTLE TROPHY COLLECTION,

IS GOING TO GIVE YOU
THE DEATH PENALTY.

- NEW YORK STATE DOESN'T
EXECUTE PEOPLE ANYMORE.

- HEY, KNOW-IT-ALL,
YOU COULD STILL BE CHARGED

WITH A CAPITAL CRIME,

EVEN WITH THE LEGISLATIVE
MORATORIUM IN EFFECT.

- YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN
THEY'RE GONNA LIFT IT.

ONE DAY YOU'RE GROWING OLD
ON DEATH ROW...

AND THE NEXT DAY YOU'RE SIZZLING
LIKE A PIECE OF BACON.

- OKAY.

GAMBEL, DO YOURSELF A FAVOR.

TELL US EVERYTHING, AND
THE D.A. WILL CUT YOU A DEAL.

YOU WANT TO ROT IN PRISON
FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE?

YOU GOT IT!

- YOU CAN'T PUT ME
BACK IN PRISON!

NO, THESE THINGS AREN'T MINE!

- SO YOU JUST HAPPENED
TO FIND A BRACELET

BELONGING TO A MURDER VICTIM

WHOSE BODY WAS THROWN
FROM YOUR CAR?

- I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING
ABOUT ANYTHING.

- I'VE GOT FIVE TROPHIES
RIGHT HERE,

AND WE'RE GONNA
FIND THESE WOMEN.

MAKE IT EASY ON YOURSELF.
JUST GIVE US THE NAMES.

[knock at door]

- YOU GOT A MINUTE,
DETECTIVES?

WHAT THE HELL'S GOING ON?

YOU KNOW YOU CAN'T
INTERVIEW A PERP

WHO JUST TRIED TO KILL YOU.

- BELIEVE ME,
HE'S NOT A THREAT NOW.

- YOU PUNISH HIM
BY CRACKING HIS SKULL?

- HE GOT THAT
DURING THE CHASE.

SERIOUSLY, CAPTAIN,
WE'RE GOOD.

- YOU ARE NOT
CLEARED FOR DUTY

UNTIL YOU SEE DR. WONG
FOR YOUR MANDATORY PSYCH EVALS.

- CAPTAIN, THAT PISSANT
IS ABOUT TO POP.

- WELL, FIN
IS GOING TO DO THE POPPING.

- SORRY, GUYS.

WANNABE COP KILLER, HUH?

CAME A LONG WAY
FROM EMBEZZLEMENT.

SAYS HERE YOU DID
SEVEN YEARS AT COXSACKIE.

- I WAS GREEDY.

TRUST ME,
I MORE THAN PAID MY DEBT.

- POOR LITTLE JASON.

STILL ANGRY ABOUT GETTING CAUGHT
BY YOUR FEMALE BOSS.

- SHE WAS JUST DOING HER JOB.
I WAS STUPID.

- NO, YOU WERE FURIOUS.

AND YOU SPENT
SEVEN YEARS IN THAT CELL

THINKING ABOUT
HOW THAT BITCH SCREWED YOU.

- I HAVEN'T SEEN HER
SINCE I GOT OUT.

- SO YOU TOOK OUT
FIVE OTHER GIRLS INSTEAD.

THEN YOU CAUGHT

SAMANTHA MILLERTON
OUTSIDE OF GLOBE OIL.

TORTURED HER FOR TWO DAYS
BEFORE YOU KILLED HER.

- I'M NOT A KILLER.

- MAYBE NOT BEFORE
YOU WENT INTO PRISON.

BUT IT HAS A WAY OF MAKING
MILD-MANNERED PUNKS LIKE YOU

INTO ANIMALS EVERY DAY.

- DON'T SEND ME BACK.

I SWEAR, I DIDN'T DO IT.

- YOU ALSO SWORE YOU HAD
A BROTHER NAMED HENRY.

NO SUCH PERSON.

SO HE COULDN'T HAVE BEEN
DRIVING YOUR VOLVO.

- I DON'T EVEN KNOW
WHERE THE CAR IS.

THE ONLY TIME
I LEAVE THE HOUSE

IS TO WALK
TO THE CORNER BODEGA.

THE ONLY PERSON I SEE
IS MY PAROLE OFFICER.

- WE GOTTA
TALK TO HIS P.O.

- MAYBE THE GUNSHOTS
AFFECTED YOUR HEARING.

YOU'RE NOT TALKING TO ANYBODY
UNTIL WONG CLEARS YOU.

- WE'RE ON OUR WAY NOW,
CAPTAIN.

- JASON GAMBEL
IS A MODEL PAROLEE.

- HE KILLED FIVE WOMEN.
ON YOUR WATCH.

- HOW?
THIS SCHLUB WAS A MESS.

HE COULDN'T EVEN
LEAVE HIS HOUSE.

- HOW OFTEN DID YOU
REALLY CHECK IN ON HIM?

I MEAN, WHAT DO YOU GOT,
50, 60 PAROLEES?

- 106.

ALL OF THEM MORE HARDENED
THAN THAT LOSER.

- SO YOU NEVER
PICKED UP ON ANYTHING.

- MAYBE HE WAS ACTING A LITTLE
MORE SQUIRRELLY THAN USUAL.

A FEW WEEKS AGO, THE GUY STARTS
CANCELING HOME VISITS.

SAYS HE WAS SICK.

WHEN I DID SEE HIM,
HE WAS A NERVOUS WRECK.

- WELL, MAYBE HE HAD ONE OF
THE VICTIMS IN HIS HOUSE.

- I JUST FIGURED HE WAS USING.

BUT HIS PISS TEST
CAME BACK CLEAN.

- AND SO THAT'S IT?

DID YOU EVER
INSPECT HIS PLACE?

- NO.

BUT LAST TIME
I WAS THERE,

I NOTICED
A DOOR WAS PADLOCKED.

WELL,
I CAN'T CHECK EVERYTHING.

- GAMBEL'S TORTURE CHAMBER.

THE WALLS ARE SO THICK,

YOU'D NEVER HEAR THE SCREAMS
FROM THE STREET.

- HE RAPES THEM
ON THE MATTRESS

THEN LAYS OUT THE PLASTIC
SHEETING WHERE HE TORTURES THEM.

GAMBEL'S TORTURE EQUIPMENT.

- IT'S THE PERFECT SETUP.

GRABS THE GIRL.
HE PARKS IN THE GARAGE.

HE DRAGS HER DOWN HERE WITHOUT
ANYONE EVER SEEING A THING.

- THERE'S BLOOD BY THE DRAIN.

- FROM THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE
TO THE SEWER.

- SMELLS LIKE HE TRIED TO CLEAN
UP WITH BLEACH.

- HE RAPES THEM,
HE KILLS THEM,

HE SLITS THEIR THROAT
TO DRAIN THEIR BLOOD.

- LET'S SEE IF GAMBEL CAN
EXPLAIN HIS WAY OUT OF THIS ONE.

[door bangs open]

- WE FOUND YOUR
RAPE AND TORTURE CHAMBER.

- I NEVER USED THAT ROOM.

- YOU'RE LUCKY THAT
WE CAN'T INTERROGATE YOU

USING SOME OF
YOUR OWN METHODS.

- SO YOUR BAG OF GOODIES
AND ALL THE BLOOD DOWN THE DRAIN

JUST MAGICALLY APPEARED?

- YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE ME!

- OUR TECHS DETERMINED
THAT SOME OF THE CONCRETE

ON YOUR BASEMENT FLOOR
HAS BEEN RECENTLY REPLACED.

SO WE'RE USING SONAR
TO LOOK FOR BODIES.

- WE HAVE CADAVER DOGS
SEARCHING YOUR WHOLE YARD.

WE'RE GOING TO FIND
EVERY ONE OF YOUR VICTIMS.

- I NEVER KILLED ANYONE.

- AND WHEN WE RECOVER YOUR CAR,

WE'RE GONNA FIND YOUR PRINTS
AND SAM'S BLOOD ALL OVER IT.

- I NEED A WORD.

- CAN IT WAIT?

- NO.

- GOT A HIT ON
ONE OF GAMBEL'S TROPHIES.

- WHICH ONE?

- THE ENGAGEMENT RING.
"ALAN AND JOAN FOREVER."

- SO YOU GOT JOAN'S
LAST NAME?

- A JOAN ARLISS
WAS WALKING DOWN 116TH STREET

WHEN A MAN GRABBED HER,

PULLED HER INTO THE ALLEY,
AND RAPED HER.

THE ONLY THING HE TOOK WAS
A RING THAT MATCHES THIS ONE.

IT WAS NEVER RECOVERED.

- WE GOT GAMBEL
ON ANOTHER VICTIM.

- ONLY PROBLEM IS,
HE'S GOT A SOLID ALIBI.

- WHICH IS WHAT?
- HE WASN'T EVEN BORN YET.

- JOAN ARLISS WAS RAPED
FEBRUARY 19, 1970.

- WE MATCHED EACH TROPHY
WITH A VICTIM.

ONLY SAMANTHA MILLERTON'S
IS A CURRENT CASE.

ALL THE OTHER CASES
ARE AROUND 40 YEARS OLD.

- HOW DID YOU I.D.
THE OLDER VICTIMS?

- WE DUG AROUND
FILES IN STORAGE,

COMBED THROUGH DEATH
AND DMV RECORDS,

SEARCHED OLD
NEWSPAPER ARTICLES.

- WHAT ABOUT DNA LEFT ON THEM?

FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND,
SEX PERVS

LIKE TO RELIVE THEIR CONQUESTS
OVER AND OVER.

- THE LAB IS STILL CHECKING,

BUT ANYTHING THEY DO FIND
WILL LIKELY BE DEGRADED.

- GAMBEL'S IN HIS 30s,
SO HE COULD ONLY BE RESPONSIBLE

FOR SAMANTHA'S MURDER.
WHO'S THE OTHER KILLER?

- WELL, IF GAMBEL KNOWS,
HE'S NOT TALKING.

HE INVOKED THIS MORNING.

- WHY CLAM UP WHEN HE COULDN'T
HAVE COMMITTED THE OTHER CRIMES?

- MY GUESS--HE REALIZED
HE HAS A BARGAINING CHIP.

- INDEED HE DOES.

- MIRANDA POND.

I DIDN'T KNOW YOU WORKED
FOR BOTTOM-FEEDERS.

- MY CLIENT WILL ONLY TALK
IN EXCHANGE FOR IMMUNITY

ON SAMANTHA MILLERTON.

- A FREE PASS ON A VICIOUS RAPE
AND MURDER? FORGET IT.

- THEN FORGET
KNOWING THE WHOLE STORY.

IT'S A PITY, REALLY.

THOSE POOR VICTIMS,
THEIR STORIES NEVER BEING TOLD.

- GAMBEL TELLS US EVERYTHING
ABOUT THOSE TROPHIES

AND WHO COLLECTED THEM...

ONLY THEN WILL WE
DISCUSS A PLEA.

- I'LL PASS THAT ALONG
TO MY BOTTOM-FEEDER.

- ARRAIGNMENT'S
BRIGHT AND EARLY.

SO HE'D BETTER DECIDE IF
THE PERSON HE'S COVERING FOR

IS MORE VALUABLE
THAN HIS OWN ASS.

- WHO DOES GAMBEL KNOW WHO COULD
HAVE BEEN RAPING 40 YEARS AGO?

HIS OLD MAN?

- HIS FATHER
WAS 64 WHEN HE DIED.

HE HAS NO OTHER
LIVING MALE RELATIVES.

IF GAMBEL SENIOR DID IT,
WHY DIDN'T JUNIOR SPILL IT?

- FAMILY HONOR'S
A FUNNY THING.

- NOTHING'S FUNNY
AT THE GAMBEL FAMILY.

TECHS SEARCHED THE HOUSE,

FOUND THIS PHOTO OF GAMBEL'S
FATHER FROM THE '60s.

- ALL WE NEED NOW
IS ONE OF OUR OLD VICTIMS

TO I.D. HIM AS THEIR RAPIST.
- WE'RE IN LUCK.

I TRACKED DOWN
JOAN ARLISS'S ADDRESS.

- I JUST WISH THERE WAS
SOME OTHER WAY TO DO THIS

WITHOUT DRAGGING HER DOWN
MEMORY LANE.

- WELL, LOOKS LIKE I'M GONNA
HAVE TO BE DRAGGING YOU

DOWN TO WONG'S OFFICE.

THIS IS SERIOUS.

ONE P.P. GOT WIND
OF THE SHOOTING.

THEY'RE CRAWLING UP MY ASS

WANTING TO KNOW WHY YOU HAVEN'T
HAD YOUR PSYCH EVALS YET.

YOU. GO.

- MIGHT AS WELL
GET IT OVER WITH.

- I'LL TALK TO JOAN.

- MY MOM'S HAD ADVANCED
ALZHEIMER'S

FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS.

EVEN IF SHE WAS AWAKE,

THERE'S NO WAY SHE COULD
ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS.

- ARE YOU HER SOLE CAREGIVER?

- UH, YEAH.

OH, YOU THINK BECAUSE
OF ALL THE INK

I CAN'T TAKE CARE OF HER?

YOU SHOULD SEE ME
BEFORE I SOBERED UP.

I WAS A WRECK.

- NO, I'M SORRY, I MEANT

TAKING CARE OF AN INVALID
IS A LOT OF WORK.

- YEAH.

BEFORE MY DAD DIED,

I PROMISED HIM THAT I WOULD
KEEP HER AT HOME

AS LONG AS I COULD,
SO I DO IT FOR HIM.

WHAT DID YOU WANT
TO TALK TO HER ABOUT?

[plastic rustles]

WE RECOVERED
HER ENGAGEMENT RING.

- OH, I'M SORRY.

YOU MUST HAVE
THE WRONG JOAN ARLISS.

SHE HAS HERS ON.
- UM...

SHE PROBABLY REPLACED IT.
THIS WAS STOLEN 40 YEARS AGO.

- REALLY? SHE NEVER SAID
ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

BOY, YOU ROBBERY COPS
NEVER GIVE UP, DO YA?

THAT'S A LONG TIME.

WHY DID YOU GO THROUGH
ALL THE TROUBLE

TO TRACK HER DOWN?

- UM...

I THINK I'VE MADE A MISTAKE.

I'VE TAKEN UP
ENOUGH OF YOUR TIME.

- HEY.

HEY, DETECTIVE.
WAIT!

WHAT'S GOING ON?

DID SOMETHING HAPPEN
TO MY MOTHER?

- I WAS JUST TRACING BACK
THE RING.

- TO WHAT?

YOU'RE HIDING SOMETHING.
DETECTIVE, TELL ME.

- VIVIAN,
I'M NOT A ROBBERY DETECTIVE.

I'M WITH SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT.

AND YOUR MOTHER'S
ENGAGEMENT RING

WAS RECOVERED DURING A RECENT
RAPE AND MURDER INVESTIGATION.

- SO THE VICTIM
HAD MY MOM'S RING?

- HER ATTACKER DID.

SOMETIMES MEN TAKE A SOUVENIR
FROM THE ASSAULT.

- WAIT, WAIT, WA--
W-WHOSE ATTACKER?

MY MOM'S--
MY MOM'S ATTACKER?

MY MOM WAS RAPED.

WHEN?

- IN FEBRUARY OF 1970.

- 1970.

I WAS BORN NOVEMBER 1970.
NOVEMBER 1970.

SO THAT'S LIKE NINE MONTHS.
- CATCH IT, MOM!

- ALMOST EXACTLY--STOP!

- VIVIAN, I--
I'M SORRY.

- WHAT'D YOU DO TO MY MOM?

- SHE'S GONNA BE OKAY.

SHE JUST...

SHE JUST GOT SOME BAD NEWS,
AND SHE'S A LITTLE UPSET.

- SHE'S GONNA HAVE ANOTHER
ONE OF HER HEADACHES.

SHE NEVER WANTS ME AROUND.

NOT UNTIL HER PILLS
MAKE HER FEEL BETTER.

- VIVIAN. VIVIAN.

DON'T BREAK
YOUR SOBRIETY, PLEASE.

VIVIAN, MIXING YOUR MOTHER'S
PRESCRIPTION PILLS WITH ALCOHOL

CAN BE REALLY DANGEROUS.

- [laughs]

MY MOTHER BEING RAPED
IS BAD ENOUGH.

BUT TO FIND OUT
THE RAPIST IS MY FATHER...

- YOU DON'T KNOW THAT
FOR SURE.

- YES, I DO!
IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW.

- WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

- I MEAN MY MOTHER HATED ME
MY ENTIRE LIFE.

SHE COULDN'T STAND
TO LOOK AT ME.

'CAUSE I WAS
THAT BASTARD'S DAUGHTER.

- I KNOW HOW HARD
THAT MUST HAVE BEEN FOR YOU.

- YOU KNOW HOW HARD THAT
MUST HAVE BEEN FOR ME?

WONDERING ALL THE TIME WHY
YOUR MOTHER NEVER HUGGED YOU

OR HELD YOUR HAND
OR SANG TO YOU AT NIGHT.

EVERY DAY, I-I--

I REMINDED HER OF THE WORST
EXPERIENCE OF HER LIFE.

WHY DIDN'T SHE

PUT ME UP FOR ADOPTION
OR ABORT ME OR--OR--

WHY...WHY DID SHE HAVE
TO RUIN BOTH OF OUR LIVES?

- I'VE ASKED MYSELF THAT EXACT
QUESTION OVER AND OVER.

I'M LIKE YOU, VIVIAN.

- WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

- MY MOTHER WAS RAPED TOO.

- [sniffles]

DID SHE TELL YOU?

- WHEN I WAS OLD ENOUGH
TO UNDERSTAND.

BUT...

THAT DIDN'T STOP HER FOR...

FOR BLAMING ME FOR ALL
THE PROBLEMS THAT SHE HAD.

- YOU MUST HAVE
HATED HER TOO, RIGHT?

- AT TIMES.

BUT I UNDERSTAND HER
A LOT BETTER NOW.

AND SHE WAS SMART
AND TALENTED

AND BEAUTIFUL.

AND BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T GET
THE SUPPORT THAT SHE WANTED...

SHE DRANK HERSELF TO DEATH.

- HEY, AT LEAST I HAD
A DAD THAT LOVED ME, RIGHT?

I MEAN, HE WASN'T REALLY
MY DAD, BUT--[laughs]

I DON'T--I DON'T EVEN
KNOW IF HE KNEW.

IF HE DID,
HE NEVER SHOWED IT

BECAUSE, UM...

HE ALWAYS SAID
HE WOULD LOVE ME, YOU KNOW.

OH, GOD,
HE DIDN'T DESERVE IT.

I MEAN, HE SHOULD HAVE
BEEN MY REAL FATHER.

- HE WAS.

AND NOTHING CAN CHANGE THAT.

NOTHING.

THAT OTHER MAN...

THAT OTHER MAN WAS NOTHING.

- AND YOU SAID YOU...
YOU CAPTURED HIM.

- WE HAVE A SUSPECT IN MIND

WHO'S DEAD.

I WANTED TO SHOW
HIS PICTURE TO YOUR MOTHER,

AND HOPEFULLY,
SHE COULD I.D. HIM

AND WE CAN CLOSE THE CASE.

- SO TELL ME--
TELL ME EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED.

- YOUR MOTHER WAS WALKING
DOWN 116TH STREET

VERY LATE AT NIGHT,
AND SHE WAS BLITZ-ATTACKED.

DRAGGED HER INTO AN ALLEY.

- NEAR BARNARD IN THE 1970s.
WHAT WAS SHE THINKING?

- IT WASN'T HER FAULT.

WAIT. WAS YOUR MOTHER
A STUDENT THERE?

- SHE NEVER GRADUATED.
SHE HAD ME INSTEAD.

[sniffles]
ANOTHER REASON TO HATE ME.

- YOU THINK THAT VIVIAN ARLISS
IS YOUR HALF-SISTER?

- EVERYTHING MATCHES.

BOTH OF OUR MOTHERS
WENT TO THE SAME COLLEGE.

THEY WERE ATTACKED
AROUND THE SAME TIME.

VIVIAN'S MOTHER
EVEN LOOKS LIKE MINE.

SHE HAS DARK HAIR,
SHE'S TALL, SHE'S THIN.

I MEAN...LOTS OF RAPISTS
HAVE A TYPE.

- THE POSSIBILITY
THAT JOE HOLLISTER

IS BOTH YOUR FATHER
AND VIVIAN'S IS SO REMOTE.

- WE COULDN'T IDENTIFY
ONE OF THE TROPHIES.

IT WAS A HANDKERCHIEF.

MY MOTHER
ALWAYS CARRIED ONE.

[whispers]
WHAT IF IT'S HERS?

- I WISH THAT YOU'D COME
AND TALKED TO ME

RIGHT AFTER THE SHOOTING.

- I'M NOT IMAGINING
THESE DETAILS.

- MAYBE SO, BUT YOU'RE
ASSOCIATING THEM IN WAYS

THAT AREN'T RATIONAL.

WHY DID YOU TELL VIVIAN
ABOUT HER MOTHER?

- I HAD NO CHOICE.

SHE DEMANDED TO KNOW
WHY I WAS THERE.

- NOBODY FORCED YOU TO TELL HER.
- SHE HAD TO KNOW.

- OR DID YOU DO IT
FOR YOURSELF?

- LIV, IT'S NOT POSSIBLE.

- YES, IT IS.

LOOK AT VIVIAN

AND THEN AT MY FATHER.

THERE'S A PHYSICAL
RESEMBLANCE.

MY FATHER WAS A JUNKIE...

AND VIVIAN
GREW UP TO BE ONE TOO.

- YOU GREW UP TO BE A COP.
SO?

- I COULD GET OUR DNA
TESTED.

I WENT BACK TO VIVIAN'S

AND I GRABBED THIS
OUT OF HER GARBAGE.

- LIV, THERE'S NO WAY
JASON GAMBEL

CROSSED PATHS
WITH YOUR OLD MAN.

HE DIED 15 YEARS AGO.

- OKAY.
SO MAYBE YOU'RE RIGHT.

IT IS POSSIBLE THAT SOMEBODY
ELSE GAVE GAMBEL THOSE TROPHIES.

BUT WHAT'S THE CONNECTION?

- GAMBEL IS SCARED TO DEATH
OF GOING BACK TO PRISON.

WHY?

- HIS LAST CELLMATE.

- WALTER BURLOCK
WAS GAMBEL'S CELLIE

FOR THE LAST FIVE YEARS
OF HIS BID.

- HE'S GOT MULTIPLE RAPES AND
ASSAULT CHARGES ON HIS SHEET.

HE GOT OUT TWO WEEKS AGO.

- WHERE IS HE NOW?
- I DON'T KNOW.

HE NEVER CHECKED IN WITH
HIS P.O. AT THE HALFWAY HOUSE.

HE NEVER REGISTERED
AS A SEX OFFENDER.

- LAST KNOWN ADDRESS?

- BUILDING TORN DOWN
IN THE SEVENTIES.

- ANY LIVING RELATIVES?
- NONE I COULD FIND.

NO CREDIT CARDS.
NO SIGN OF HIM.

- THEN WHERE'S HE BEEN LIVING,

AND HOW'S HE BEEN
SUPPORTING HIMSELF?

- GAMBEL. BEING BURLOCK'S
BITCH DIDN'T END IN PRISON.

- MIGHT EXPLAIN WHY GAMBEL
FREAKED OUT ON HIS P.O.

TWO WEEKS AGO.

BURLOCK PAID HIM A VISIT,
STOLE HIS CAR.

FIN, PULL GAMBEL'S FINANCIALS.

- WALTER BURLOCK?
YEAH, HE'S RUNNIN' A TAB.

- HE'S USING GAMBEL'S
CREDIT CARD.

- WHERE IS HE?
- HE'S OVER THERE.

GETTIN' A LAP DANCE
FROM TANYA.

- [snaps]

HEY.

- HEY, I ALREADY PAID YOU.
GET BACK HERE, BITCH.

OH!

WHAT THE HELL
ARE YOU DOING?

GET OFF MY BACK!

- YOU LIKE BRACELETS
AS TROPHIES?

[clicking]

TRY THESE.

[door opens]

- I THINK YOU SET
A RECORD, BURLOCK.

WE'RE GOOD.

HMM?
TWO WEEKS OUT OF PRISON,

AND YOU'RE GOING RIGHT BACK?

FOR KIDNAPPING,
RAPE, AND MURDER.

- [chuckles]

YOU GOT A...

REALLY NICE TIGHT
WHITE ASS, HONEY.

EITHER COME OVER HERE
AND FINISH MY LAP DANCE

OR GET ME A LAWYER.

- YOU'RE GONNA NEED ONE.

GAMBEL GAVE US
YOUR BOX OF TROPHIES.

AND YOUR FINGERPRINTS ARE
ALL OVER HIS BLOODY BASEMENT.

- I BEEN LOCKED IN A CAGE
FOR 30 YEARS, HON.

YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO DO
BETTER THAN THAT!

- WELL, YOUR LITTLE BUDDY IS
RIGHT NEXT DOOR

TELLING US EVERYTHING
THAT WE NEED TO KNOW.

NOW, A CAREER CRIMINAL
LIKE YOU KNOWS

THAT WHOEVER TALKS FIRST
GETS THE DEAL.

- LAWYER.

NOW, BITCH!

- MY CLIENT'S READY
TO TALK FOR A DEAL.

- MAYBE I DON'T NEED HIM NOW.

- THEN WHY CALL THIS MEETING?

- SORRY TO WASTE YOUR TIME.

SEE YOU AT TRIAL.
- YOU'RE MAKING A MISTAKE.

YOU DON'T HAVE THE MAN

WHO ACTUALLY RAPED
AND MURDERED SAMANTHA MILLERTON.

- THE TIME TO COOPERATE

WAS BEFORE WE GOT GAMBEL'S
COCONSPIRATOR.

- COME ON.

GET UP.

COME HERE.

HAVE A LOOK.

- DON'T TELL BURLOCK I'M HERE!

PLEASE! HE CAN'T KNOW!
- OKAY.

AGREE TO A DEAL AND PROTECTION

IN EXCHANGE FOR JASON GAMBEL'S
ADMISSION AND TESTIMONY

AGAINST WALTER BURLOCK.

- I DON'T NEED MR. GAMBEL'S
TESTIMONY, DO I, DETECTIVE?

- NO. BECAUSE WE KNOW
YOU DUMPED HER BODY,

AND I KNOW YOU TOOK
A SHOT AT ME!

NOW I'M GONNA MAKE SURE

THAT YOU AND BURLOCK SHARE
A NICE, TIGHT CELL

FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIVES.

- I DIDN'T SHOOT AT YOU.
BURLOCK DID.

HE RAPED THAT GIRL, NOT ME.
I WAS THERE.

SHE WAS SCREAMING.
AND THEN HE CUT HER AND I--

- QUIET.

DO WE HAVE A DEAL?
- ACTING IN CONCERT

STILL PUTS YOUR CLIENT
ON THE HOOK

FOR ANYTHING HE CLAIMS
WALTER BURLOCK DID ON HIS OWN.

- UNDER EXTREME DURESS.
JASON GAMBEL WAS TERRIFIED

THAT HE'D BE KILLED
BY THAT MONSTER

IF HE DIDN'T FOLLOW ORDERS.

PRISON INFIRMARY RECORDS
DETAILING HIS INJURIES.

ANAL TEARING, INTERNAL BLEEDING,
FRACTURED BONES.

BURLOCK CONDITIONED GAMBEL
TO OBEY HIM

BY SODOMIZING
AND BEATING HIM REPEATEDLY

FOR FIVE LONG YEARS.

ONCE HE GOT OUT,
BURLOCK TRACKED GAMBEL DOWN...

TOOK OVER HIS LIFE,
HIS BANK ACCOUNTS,

MOVED INTO HIS BASEMENT.

- INTERVIEW'S OVER.

- JASON GAMBEL'S A VICTIM,
COUNSELOR.

- NOT ACCORDING TO THE LAW.

- WHAT JUST HAPPENED?

- A LOOPHOLE BIG ENOUGH FOR
WALTER BURLOCK TO SKIP THROUGH.

- WE HAVE ENOUGH EVIDENCE

TO PUT HIM AWAY
FOR THREE LIFETIMES.

- TOO BAD WE CAN'T USE IT.

I HAVE TO VOID BURLOCK'S ARREST
AND DEFER PROSECUTION.

- WHY?
- BECAUSE YOU UNKNOWINGLY

CONDUCTED AN ILLEGAL SEARCH.

- NO, WE DIDN'T.
WE WERE SHOT AT.

WE HAD CAUSE TO ENTER
AND SEARCH THAT PREMISES.

- IT DOESN'T MATTER.

ONCE BURLOCK MOVED INTO
GAMBEL'S RESIDENCE,

HE HAD A REASONABLE
EXPECTATION OF PRIVACY.

WE HAD TO SERVE THEM BOTH
WITH A WARRANT.

- GILLIAN,
IF WE LET BURLOCK GO,

HE'S GONNA RAPE AND KILL
AGAIN.

- UNTIL YOU BRING ME
NEW EVIDENCE, HE WALKS.

- OKAY, LOOK, WE CAN LOCK HIM UP
FOR VIOLATING HIS PAROLE.

HE'S A LEVEL ONE
SEX OFFENDER.

- HE'S GOTTA DO IT
WITHIN TWO MONTHS.

HE'S ONLY BEEN OUT TWO WEEKS.

- SO WHAT DO YOU WANT US
TO DO?

- MAKE HIM CONFESS
OR CATCH HIM IN THE ACT.

- OH, DETECTIVE BENSON--

- I'LL TAKE THE KID
TO THE BREAK ROOM.

- HIS NAME'S CALVIN.

- HEY, VIV?
- HMM?

- VIV.
- HOW YOU DOING?

WANNA GRAB A SNACK WITH ME?
- SURE.

- OKAY. NOTHING'S GONNA
HAPPEN TO YOUR MOM.

- VIVIAN,
HAVE A SEAT RIGHT THERE.

VIVIAN, YOUR SON
IS WORRIED ABOUT YOU,

AND I CAN'T SAY
THAT I BLAME HIM.

- I'M FINE.
- HEY. WHAT'S GOIN' ON?

- I, UH, I NEED YOU
TO TAKE MY BLOOD FOR DNA,

'CAUSE I NEED TO FIND
MY REAL FATHER.

- VIVIAN...

KNOWING WHO RAPED YOUR MOTHER
ISN'T GOING TO HELP YOU.

- KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.

- REALLY?

YOU FIND OUT
THAT YOU'RE A CHILD OF RAPE,

AND SUDDENLY YOU'RE HIGH

AND IN A PRECINCT FULL OF COPS.

- ARE YOU GONNA HELP ME OR NOT?

- THE BEST THING
THAT I CAN DO TO HELP YOU

IS TO FIND YOU A REHAB
AND A SHRINK.

- DON'T JUDGE ME.

YOU OF ALL PEOPLE
KNOW WHAT THIS IS LIKE.

- THAT'S WHY I GOT HELP
BEFORE IT DESTROYED ME.

- DOES IT EVER GET BETTER?
- WITH TIME.

AND LOTS OF COUNSELING.

- MAYBE THAT'S NOT WHAT
I WANT.

I-I NEED THIS RAGE.

IT'S THE ONLY THING
THAT CONNECTS ME TO MY PAST.

- YOUR MOTHER?

- SHE DIED LAST NIGHT.

- I'M SORRY.

- I THOUGHT I--
THOUGHT I WOULD BE OKAY.

SHE DIDN'T REALLY
LOVE ME ANYWAY.

- SHE KEPT YOU.
WHAT DOES THAT SAY?

VIVIAN, YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT

TO BE ANGRY AND BE RESENTFUL.

BUT IF YOU LET THIS
CONSUME YOU--

HOW IS THAT GONNA
AFFECT YOUR SON?

- CALVIN DOESN'T NEED TO KNOW.

- CAN HE STAY WITH HIS FATHER

UNTIL YOU...
GET BACK ON YOUR FEET?

- I DON'T EVEN KNOW
WHERE HE IS.

THE CREEP HASN'T SHOWN HIS FACE
SINCE CALVIN WAS BORN.

I DON'T WANT HIM HURT.

I LOVE MY BOY.

- YOU LOVE YOUR BOY?

THEN GET...HELP.

THERE'S SOME EXCELLENT
COUNSELORS ON THIS LIST.

- I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY

EXCEPT I'M SORRY
I SHOWED UP HERE LIKE THIS.

- MOM. CAN WE GO?
- I GUESS THAT'S MY CUE.

- HEY, CALL ONE OF THEM, VIVIAN.
I'LL CHECK IN WITH YOU, OKAY?

- I'LL GIVE IT A SHOT.
- THAT'S ALL I CAN ASK FOR.

- MOM.
- ALL RIGHT.

THANKS A LOT.

[cell phone rings]
HELLO.

- EVERYTHING ALL RIGHT?

- I DON'T KNOW.

- KID LEFT HIS BACKPACK.
- OH.

THANKS.

- NEVER TRUST A COP.

THEY'LL BLAME STUFF ON YA
JUST FOR FUN.

- CALVIN.
GO BACK TO YOUR MOTHER.

- JUST EXPLAINING
THE FACTS OF LIFE.

- GET ON THAT ELEVATOR,
AND DON'T LOOK BACK.

- I CAN CATCH THE NEXT ONE.

DETECTIVE BENSON
THOUGHT SHE HAD ME,

BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY,
SHE FELL WAY SHORT.

- IT'S THE FUNERAL PARLOR.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT
THEY'RE SAYING.

THEY HAVE ME ON HOLD.
- SHE DOESN'T LIKE YOU.

- WELL, THAT'S BECAUSE
SHE THINKS THAT I RAPED

AND MURDERED A WOMAN--
- THAT'S ENOUGH.

- I TRIED TO EXPLAIN TO HER

THAT OLD RINGS AND BRACELETS
DOESN'T PROVE GUILT.

- BURLOCK. LEAVE NOW.
- I GUESS SHE

JUST DIDN'T DO HER JOB
THAT DAY.

- THAT'S ENOUGH!
- WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?

- VIVIAN, GO BACK
TO THE SQUAD ROOM NOW.

- WALTER BURLOCK.

MALIGNED, MISUNDERSTOOD,

AND MISTAKEN FOR SOMEONE ELSE.

- YOU'RE THE RAPIST.

- NOT SO.

LOOK, NOW SHE'S AFRAID OF ME,
AREN'T YOU, SWEETMEAT?

- DO I LOOK SCARED OF YOU,
PRICK?

- VIVIAN, CALM DOWN!
- DO I?

- DO I LOOK SCARED?
- VIVIAN, STOP IT.

- OOH, I LIKE FEISTY.
ALWAYS HAVE.

- GO GRAB YOUR SON AND LEAVE!

- DID--DID YOU RAPE JOAN ARLISS?
- WHO?

- LEAVE!
- JOAN ARLISS!

- IT'S BEEN PLEASANT.

I HOPE TO SEE YOU AGAIN
REAL SOON.

BYE, SONNY.
- CALM DOWN. OKAY?

- THAT'S THE MAN THAT RAPED
MY MOM, ISN'T IT?

ISN'T IT?

- YES.

- WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME?

- BECAUSE I THOUGHT...

THAT BOTH OF OUR MOTHERS
WERE RAPED BY THE SAME MAN.

- ARE YOU MY SISTER?

- NO.
I RAN YOUR DNA AGAINST MINE.

BUT, VIVIAN,
I'M STILL HERE FOR YOU.

- COME ON.
GO TO HELL!

GO TO HELL.
COME ON.

- CALVIN.

- UNI SAID BURLOCK WENT IN
AT 5:00 P.M. YESTERDAY.

HASN'T LEFT SINCE.

- FIN'S GOT EYES ON GAMBEL
AT A LOCAL HOTEL.

- KICKING A GUY
OUT OF HIS OWN HOUSE?

SAYS A LOT ABOUT THE HOLD
BURLOCK HAS OVER HIM.

Fin: GAMBEL'S ON HIS WAY
BACK HOME.

COMING AROUND THE CORNER.
- WELL, WELL, WELL.

EITHER BURLOCK
ORDERED HIM HERE

OR GAMBEL SUDDENLY
GREW A PAIR.

THIS SHOULD BE INTERESTING.

- YOU THINK BURLOCK
CALLED GAMBEL

TO GO ON THE PROWL AGAIN?

- WELL, WHEN YOU GET THE ITCH,
YOU CALL YOUR BITCH.

- WELL, I HOPE
THEY LEAVE SOON.

I CAN'T WAIT
TO PUT BURLOCK AWAY.

- GAMBEL, DON'T MOVE.

DON'T MOVE.

- HE'S DEAD.
THERE'S BLOOD EVERYWHERE.

- WELL, THANKS
FOR HELPING US OUT.

- ARREST HIM FOR THE MURDER
OF WALTER BURLOCK.

- LOOKS LIKE
YOU WHACKED HIM GOOD.

- BLOOD SPATTER LOOKS LIKE
GAMBEL BLITZED HIM.

- DEFINITELY HIT HIM WITH
THE CAST IRON MORE THAN ONCE.

LOT OF RAGE.
- GAMBEL FITS THAT DESCRIPTION.

- WHO YOU TRYING TO KID, LIV?
LOOK AT THE BLOOD.

IT'S CONGEALED,
BEGINNING TO CRUST.

THAT BODY HAS BEEN THERE
FOR HOURS.

- NO. VIVIAN
COULDN'T HAVE DONE THIS.

HER FIRST PRIORITY IS CALVIN.

- DOESN'T MEAN SHE COULDN'T
HAVE COME OVER HERE LAST NIGHT.

- GAMBEL COULD HAVE
LEFT HIS HOTEL UNNOTICED,

COME BACK HERE, KILLED HIM,

AND THEN COME BACK HERE TODAY
TO DISCOVER THE BODY.

- OR VIVIAN FOLLOWED
BURLOCK HOME,

BATTED HER EYELASHES,

AND THEN BATTED HIM WITH
THE FIRST THING THAT SHE SAW...

A PAN ON THE STOVE.

[doorbell chiming]

- I'M LOOKING FOR
VIVIAN ARLISS.

- WHAT DO YOU WANT?
- UH, TO TALK TO HER.

IS SHE HOME?
- NO.

- AND YOU ARE...

- I'M SARAH HOYT,
FRIEND OF VIV'S.

I'VE BEEN HELPING HER OUT.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE SHE WENT
OR WHEN SHE'S COMING BACK.

- PLEASE HAVE HER CALL
DETECTIVE BENSON IMMEDIATELY.

IT'S VERY IMPORTANT.

- LET ME GUESS.
VIVIAN WASN'T HOME.

- WHY, DID SHE CALL?

- NO. AND SHE'S NOT GOING TO.
- HOW DO YOU KNOW?

- GOT HERE ABOUT
AN HOUR AGO.

THE ONLY THING HE'LL SAY IS
HE'S GOT SOMETHING TO GIVE YOU.

- WHAT'S GOING ON, CALVIN?

WHAT HAPPENED?

- MY MOM'S GONE.

- DO YOU KNOW WHERE SHE WENT?

- NO.

- SO HOW DID YOU GET HERE?

- MY MOM DROVE ME.

SHE TOLD ME TO RUN IN
AND GIVE THIS TO YOU.

AND WHEN YOU WEREN'T HERE,
I WENT OUT TO TELL HER,

AND SHE WAS GONE.

HOW COULD SHE LEAVE ME HERE?

- I DON'T KNOW, HONEY,
BUT WE'LL FIND HER.

IT'S GONNA BE OKAY.

- NO, IT'S NOT.

- CAN I SEE
WHAT'S IN THE ENVELOPE?

- WHAT IS IT?

- IT'S A NOTARIZED
TRANSFER OF PARENTAL RIGHTS.

VIVIAN MADE ME CALVIN'S
LEGAL GUARDIAN.
