Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999–…): Season 22, Episode 5 - Turn Me on Take Me Private - full transcript

The SVU investigates when a role-play session on a camming website turns violent after one user decides to meet his idol in person.

In the criminal justice

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.

[dance music]

Aw, that's sweet, ShyGabe.

And I like this sweater too.

It's so warm and soft.


Um, no strip without a tip,

[computer chimes]

Thank you.

[computer chiming]


I'm glad you like what you see.

Oh, and for my one year

I've put all of
the top requests on the wheel.

So wheel spins
will start at 200.

So let's see it.
Let's see it.

[computer chiming]

Oh, yeah.
Big spenders here.

A lot of tokens.

Thank you, thank you,
thank you.

[computer chiming]


Any challengers?

[clicks tongue]


All right.

Let's see your prize,

Tonight's show
is gonna be sexy.

We are going to... roleplay.



"Helpless victim

Your fav.

"So hot."

See you tonight.

Your wish is my command.

Turn me on at 10:00, baby.

I'm ready.

I'm still waiting

Longest six months ever, huh?

Nice jeans by the way.

You look good.



Look what Manny made.

"I love you, Zoey.

Thank you for lunches."

He couldn't even
write his name,

and now look
at these sentences.

Oh, so you're a saint now?

According to him.

Stay still.

Get off me!

Season 22 Episode 05

Aired on:
January 14, 2021

Episode Title:
"Turn Me On, Take Me Private"

You know you want it,




Kendra had never done a scene
with anyone else before,

and the way she was crying
at the end,

I'd never seen her like that.

Why'd you record it?

Well, I figured
if it was an assault,

it'd be good to have evidence.

Kendra and I are really close.


So you know her real name,
her address, her phone number?

It's not like that.

She's a cam girl.

I do know she's in New York

because during
the pandemic one night,

she applauded
for the medical workers.

You ever try to find out
where she lived, Larry?

I'm not a creep.

Something bad happened to her.

I tried to reach out to her
all last night.

She took her room down.

Something's wrong.

[soft dramatic music]

So what are
we looking at here?

Was she assaulted
or was she roleplaying?

Well, it's unclear.

Larry says that
he's her biggest fan.

He swears that
she always works alone.

Okay, but she didn't
report this.

I checked SVUs
in all five Boroughs.


But she could be reluctant
to come forward.

She did promise
to enact a rape fantasy

for 600 tokens.


It's a tipping system
through the website

run by SugarFap.

So this website
can track her down.

It's anonymous.

Technically, the girls are
just independent contractors

who get paid
through the site.

What... like Uber drivers?

So they redeem these tokens
for money, right?

Should be a paper trail.

We tried,

and the owner of the site says

that the girls' anonymity
is sacrosanct.

Next time you need a warrant,
just call me.

Ah, we miss you.

And he also said
that he'll only talk

to the guy who went
to lawyer school.

Mr. Cougat.

Well, well,
Counselor Carisi.

Who's your new partner?

Uh, we spoke on the phone.
I'm Captain Benson.

Captain coming
all the way out to Queens.

I would have put out a spread.

Well, from porn streaming
to camming,

you're quite the entrepreneur.

Those that can't adapt
are doomed.

First, the internet wiped out
all the real filmmakers.

And now,
an amateur can't compete

with a real live girl
alone in her room

doing what she's told to do.

Besides, it's consensual,
social distanced.

Not what we saw.

Well, since COVID,

the camera room got flooded

by sex workers and strippers

who couldn't make a living.

It got competitive.

These girls push the envelope
to get better tips,

but nobody's forced
to do anything.

How can you be sure?

Well, the models
control the room.

If a customer gets
out of line,

that IP address is forever
blocked in the room.

Well, even so,
whoever did this

broke in through her window.

A ravishment fantasy.

He was probably in on the act.

Or the acts.

Well, we're gonna need
to hear that from KendraDream.

As I told you,
these girls expect

that I protect their privacy.

Well, we're trying
to protect her.

This is a subpoena
for the real name

and contact information
of KendraDream.

And her regular viewers
in the tri-state area.

Hold on.

You really think one
of our subscribers did that?

Well, how else
would somebody know

when her act was gonna go live?

Oh, dear.

If that's true,

this is indeed a dark day
here at SugarFap.

That's Zoey Carrera.

We just need to talk to her.

- Zoey.
- Yes, Peter?

- You have guests.
- Thanks.

Zoey, I'm Captain Benson.

This is Officer Tamin.

Uh, what's this about?

Do you go by Kendra as well?


How did you two find me?

I go by KendraDream online,

But I don't understand.
Camming is legal.

It is.
It is.

But one of your fans

thinks that you were
assaulted last night.

This is you, isn't it?

Someone recorded that?

They're not supposed to...
No one can see that.

Zoey, we're here to help you.

And if you didn't want
that to happen...

No, I didn't.

I was raped.

But I'm a cam girl.

I thought if I went
to the police

that they would laugh at me.

We're not laughing, Zoey.

[somber music]

This past year,
I've kind of been living

a double life.

I worked retail pre-pandemic.

But my father's
in a nursing home,

I have school tuition...

Zoey, we completely

So, Zoey, why don't you tell us
what happened last night?

[clears throat]

I was acting out
a ravishment fantasy,

pretending a stranger
had broken in.

That's when I saw the comments

saying that someone
was coming in the window.

So they thought that
it was part of the act?

It wasn't.

Before I could react,
he was behind me.

Choking me.

I tried to get away.

I screamed, "No!"

And he pulled my nightgown up
and tried to rape me.

He couldn't though.
He used his fingers.

We saw that he was
wearing a ski mask.

Did you hear his voice?

He said,

"You know you want it."

Low, like he was disguising it.

Zoey, do any of your fans
know where you live?

Absolutely not.

I use wish lists
for deliveries,

never reveal my location.

I'm very safe.

And I'm sure that you are.

But whoever did this
called you Kendra

and knew that you had

a scheduled
ravishment scenario, right?

My fans are my friends.

Like, they're nice.

And I would never go private

with someone
that I didn't trust.

The private sessions...
Are you closer with these men?

It can get very intimate.


So why don't we go
through the list

and see if
we're missing anything.

So your top customer,

He watches with his wife.

They're trying to get pregnant.

[clears throat]

TreySlays is a trader.

He's been extremely
stressed with work.

He was caught masturbating
during a work Zoom session.

He's so busy.

He can't even leave
his apartment.

They've all been messaging me
asking if I'm okay.

So that's why
you shut the room down?

[tense music]

We were so worried
about you last night.

Amy lit a candle.

So you two watched together?

I turned it off.

You wanted to talk
about last night?

I mean, it was hot.

But it was so real.

I was scared for you.

I'm fine.

You sure this
is okay with you?

Um, I'm so glad that
you wanted to see me tonight.

Why wouldn't I,
my little ShyGabe?


Um... I-I thought maybe
you'd be mad at me.

Why did you think that?

Well, after last night.

What about last night?

Well, you were crying.

But that was part
of the show, right?

We're still good?

I mean, I gave you
what you asked for?

Uh, yeah.

So that was you?

Oh, I thought
you could tell.

Just making sure.

Uh, you had the mask?

Your voice was different.

Yeah, no.
It was me.

It was me.

It was for the show.

It was hot, right?



You want me to put on
a nightgown?

Like last night?

Oh, yeah.
That would be great.

Please talk to me
like you did last night.

And you know you want it,

I do.

Just like that.

[door slams, footsteps]

Get your hands up!

Gabe Miller,
you are under arrest

for the attempted rape
of Zoey Carrera.

It wasn't rape.

She wanted it.

Yeah, that's a new one.
Get him out of here.

- She...
- How could he not know?

It doesn't matter.

Hey, Liv.
You're gonna wanna see this.

We got him.

We got him.

Those photos,
Kendra posed for all of them.

She wanted me to have them.

- Yeah, right.
- Sure.

We're trying to figure out why
she thinks you attacked her.

I didn't.

That's not what happened.

- It was roleplay.
- Roleplay.

Like we've been doing.

Lately, me and Kendra
have been getting very intense.

Okay, so you two have
roleplayed in person before?

No, but it was time.

- It was time?
- We were both ready.

When she said that she wanted
to be ravished,

she looked right at me,
and I know her, her voice.

She wanted it.

- So it was the first time.
- Yes.

That's why you
couldn't get it up?

Did Kendra tell you that?

She was just answering
our questions.

So she gave you her address?

Well, not in so many words.

Then how'd you know
where she lived?

- You stalking her?
- Is that what she's saying?

She's saying
you tried to rape her.

- That's what she's saying.
- Oh, man.

I have to talk to her.

You wanna take her private?
That's not gonna happen.

Sergeant, take it easy.

There's clearly some kind
of misunderstanding here.

So why don't you walk us
through how we got here,

and we can clear this all up?


I don't think so.

You do know that
I'm a certified paralegal?

So at this juncture,

I'm going to formally
request representation.

I don't care
how deluded he is.

That's not a defense.

I almost feel sorry
for this guy.

I don't.

Yeah, well, his side of it,
he's telling the truth.

About what?

That he didn't rape her?

- Nobody said that.
- No?

So what are you saying, Carisi?

What I'm saying is they were
in some kind of relationship.

That's how camming works,

That's why the guys keep
coming back to the same girl?

That's how it all works.

Strippers, escorts...
Men start believing 'em.

I mean, guys are fools
or worse.

And she got on camera
and told her fans

that she wanted somebody
to sneak in,

hold her down, and assault her.

Now we know she
didn't mean that literally,

that she didn't consent to it.

But it could get complicated
for a jury.

Well, lucky that they have
you to explain the difference

between fantasy and reality,

And the reality is
that he's a stalker.

Yeah, and she cams,
mostly undressed

for hundreds of fans
for hours...

Carisi, how quickly
we switch.

I'm just showing you

how the defense
is going to play this.

So make sure Zoey
is prepared for that.

Gabe was one
of my early subscribers.

He was shy at first.

But we ended up camming
every night

when he was working from home.

He says
you're in a relationship.


Well, I mean, kind of,
but it's not real.

I mean, we talk all the time,
but it's all virtual.

So you never told him
where you live, right?


Well, somehow he found you.

Maybe you slipped
during a session?

I don't see how.

Zoey, he was stalking you.

He has pictures of you here.

With my dad?

Just you out front
on the phone.

I do cam
from my cell sometimes,

but I'm always
extremely careful

not to have any details
in the frame.



About six months ago,
I was in a private with Gabe,

and I was really upset.

My dad was sundowning,
and he didn't remember my name.

And you told Gabe that?

I said that I probably have
to put my father

in a memory care ward.

Gabe said his law firm did
a lot of elder care cases.

And he recommended
this place.

Oh, my God.
I did this.

I let a crazy man into my life,

into my father's life.

I have to go.

He's guilty.

Why do I even have
to take this to trial?

I can't testify in public.

I get it.

No vic wants to testify,
but what are her issues?

Well, her father is
in a nursing home.

She's in grad school
for social work.

And she volunteers
at a Catholic food bank.

She doesn't want
the real people in her life

finding out she cams.

Look... she's afraid of Gabe

for herself, for her father.

Well, there's
a restraining order in place,

and we could put a squad car
around the block?

Her story seems solid?



This was an unwanted assault.

Any consent was in Gabe's mind.


But if she won't take
the stand,

I can't take this to trial.

So play hardball on a deal.

I don't know why
Zoey's saying these things.

We are in love.

Gabe, please.
Attempted rape?

It was consensual,
and there was no penetration.

Why does everyone
keep saying that?

Maybe I can go down.

Aggravated sexual abuse
in the first degree.

A felony.

No chance.

We might consider
forcible touching.

A class A misdemeanor?
No chance.

This girl cammed that
she wanted to be overpowered,

told her fans
when it was going to happen,

charged them to watch.

That's a lot for a jury
to absorb.

Well, Zoey's
a very sympathetic witness.

And these days, victim blaming?

- Good luck.
- No, no.

We have no intention
of doing that.

Lowest I can go.

Aggravated sexual abuse
in the third.

He'll be back
to his cam sessions in a year.

I didn't abuse her.

Gabe, please.
It's a fair offer.

Give me a few minutes
with my client.

Are you kidding me?

Aggravated sexual abuse
in the third degree.

- How do you plead?
- Guilty.

- People on bail?
- Hold up.

I'm not... I'm not guilty
of abuse.


Well, which is it,

The only thing I'm guilty of
is loving Zoey Carrera.

- We had a deal in place.
- Maybe you two do.

This is the first
I'm hearing of this.

And the last.

I'm firing you,
and I'm representing myself.

I'm a trained paralegal,
Your Honor.

Even so, I would advise
against it, Mr. Miller.

However, that is your right.

And I am ordering Ms. Myerson
to stay on as co-counsel.

- People on bail.
- Remand.

The defendant has been
stalking his victim.

I'll stay away.

Last thing I wanna do
is upset her.

Mr. Miller,
I'll release you R.O.R.

But if you violate
your restraining order,

I will remand you.

As you should, sir.

This matter is adjourned.

Case is set over for trial.

He's gonna be his own lawyer?

- Can he even do that?
- I'm sorry, Zoey.

I gave him a better deal
than he deserves.

His lawyer knew it.

I don't know
what this guy wants.

I do.

He wants her.

Carisi, you're really
just gonna let this happen?

Good morning to you too, Kat.

- How are you doing?
- Not great.

It's bad enough Gabe is allowed
to represent himself in court,

but now he gets to go
to her apartment?

Well, it is the crime scene,
and as of last January,

the defense and the defendant
are allowed to examine it.

Just so you know,
Zoey is completely freaked out.

I understand that.
I don't blame her.

She's insisting
on being there.

That's not a good idea
but that's really up to her.

Well, is anything up to us?

I mean, is there anything
that you can do?

Do you mean I am able
to change a state law

in the next hour?

- No.
- It's not fair.

Aren't you supposed
to protect the victim?

Actually, my job is
to uphold the law.

Is there a reason
that you don't like me?

I just can't believe
that you were ever a cop.

- Well, I'm due at Zoey's.
- Well, I'm coming with you.

This day just keeps
getting better.

Mask up.
We're taking the subway.

I came in
through this window.

I'd like to point out
that she left it open.

Then I walked past this table
with the toys.

Explain to me how
is he allowed in my apartment.

New discovery laws.

The defendant can examine
the crime scene.

You don't have to be here,

- We'll stay.
- I'm not leaving.

You kept this.

Do you remember
when I bought this for you

for our private session
on your birthday?

Beyond the scope.
Counselor, control your client.

Sorry, Zoey.
I overstepped, sorry.

Gabe, I think we have
everything we need.

I reserve the right
to come back.


Bye, Zoey.

See you in court.

Gabe, let's go.

[door clicks]

That's bull.

He's getting off on this.

He can't wait
to cross-examine me,

make me say whatever he wants.

I can't do this.

Zoey, his defense
is that it was consensual.

If you don't testify,
then he gets away with rape.

Yeah, the judge
will make sure

that he doesn't get
out of line.

If he tries anything, he'll be
held in immediate contempt.


I hate this new law.
I hate it.

How is Zoey holding up?

She's furious at Gabe.

She's worried that
the jury's gonna judge her

for being a cam girl.

She's right, and they will.


The whole point of camming

is that the woman
controls the narrative.

No physical contact,
no STDs, no violence.

It's supposed to be empowering.

But it doesn't make it safe.

When you say that, it sounds
like you're victim blaming.

Kat, it's not victim blaming.
It's just...

[phone vibrating]

Listen... from what Captain
and I have seen,

sex work is far more dangerous
than people wanna believe.

Carisi says the jury
has been selected,

and Gabe chose
mostly older women.

Who are gonna judge her
for being a cam girl.

I could just tell
this guy in a mask

wasn't part of her cam show.

She was screaming, crying.

This was a rape.

Did you call the cops?

I videoed it on my phone.

And the next day, I brought it
in to Manhattan SVU.

Thank you.

Larry, right?

But your username
on the cam site is?

- TenlnchNail.
- Right.

So we already know
that you exaggerate.

Is there a question here?

Mr. Miller.

Larry, was that night
the first time

that you watched Kendra...
Oh, sorry...

Zoey give a webcam performance?


How about the first time
that day?

I'd seen her several times
that day.

What were
those earlier sessions about?

She was telling her fans

that she wanted them to watch
her that night and tip up.

Watch her do what?

Enact a fantasy
of a masked stranger

breaking in
and forcing himself on her.

Yeah, didn't wanna miss that,
did you?

- Your Honor.
- Rephrase.

Did you watch the whole show?

It was an assault.

What were you doing

while you were watching
the alleged assault?


- Were you masturbating?
- Objection.

- I'll allow.
- Maybe.


Until I realize
it wasn't what she wanted.

Did you come first
and then realize that...

- Your Honor!
- Withdrawn.

Nothing further.

Would I say that Gabe Miller
is a frequent customer?

Yes, I would.

And by that, do you mean
that he follows

a lot of different
cam performers?

Just one.

- And who is that?
- Zoey Carrera.

We refer to him
as a monogamous user.

You mean obsessive?



How would you
characterize his usage

as compared to others?

If there's a bell curve,

he's on the high usage
far end of it.

- And how do you know that?
- Cookies.

We track usage.

When a viewer tips
or takes a girl private,

we monetize that
via his credit card.

Is there anything else that
would distinguish Mr. Miller

from the other customers?

Actually, yes.

He contacted our site
for Zoey's address.

Wanted to send her
chocolates and flowers.

So we forwarded him

her Amazon Wish List.

These interactions are virtual.

There's no physical contact.
Our viewers know this.

Thank you.

So, Mr. Cougat,

you characterized Gabe Miller
as monogamous.

- Yes.
- How about loyal?

I guess you could say that.

And generous,
sending flowers, chocolate?

Things Ms. Carrera
told him she enjoys.

I suppose so.

You suppose?

[tense music]

But you don't know her.

I mean, have you ever met her,
watched her cam?

I can't say that I have.

So if she were in a special
relationship with someone,

you would have no way
of knowing that.

She's just an independent
contractor for you.

I suppose so, but this
shouldn't have happened to her.


How many girls
are reenacting rape fantasies

on your site right now,

and how much money
are you making off of them?

- Objection.
- Withdrawn.

Nothing further.

What did Zoey say happened?

Gabe just showed up
and talked his way in.

He told the staff
he's a visitor.

He's with my father.
Do something.

We have a restraining order.

He shouldn't be here.

Officer, Captain,
is something wrong?

Get away from my father.

Zoey, your boyfriend's
such a nice man.

He brought me ice cream.

He's not my boyfriend.

Okay, Gabe.
Let's go.

Go where?

You're in violation
of your restraining order.

Am I?
Ask around.

She's the one
that followed me.

I don't understand.
We were having a nice time.

Papa, please.

I'm taking you back
to your room.

Gabe Miller, turn around.

- What?
- You're under arrest.


Zoey, I didn't mean
to hurt you, okay?

I forgive you.

Hey, hey.
You know what I bet?

I bet that someday we're gonna
look back on all of this,

and we're gonna laugh.

- Yeah, maybe not.
- [exhales]

Zoey's a wreck; I don't think
she slept at all last night.

Neither did Gabe.

Court officer said he had

a rough 24 hours in the tomb.

- Oh, yeah?

This is all an act.

Claiming him and Zoey
are in love,

pretending he doesn't know
the difference

between what's real
and what's not.

He's not faking, Carisi.

You stay on those screens
long enough,

you'll convince yourself that
that's reality

and this... this right here
is a simulation.

Oh, come on.
I don't buy it.

The longer you've been a DA,

the less you remember
being a cop.

You gotta get out of your head

and into his.

I consider myself
to be an introvert,

a private person.

And how difficult is it
for you to be here today, Zoey?


I'm only here
because what he did was wrong.

It's not part of camming.

Can you tell us
about camming?

I know most people think
it's just girls

taking their clothes off
for money,

and that is part of it,

but it's not the only part.

What else is camming about?

It's a community.

Most of my fans just like
hanging out and talking.

We've all been
so isolated lately.

Sometimes, I feel
like a therapist.

But some of the requests
are sexual?

- Objection.
- On what grounds, Mr. Miller?

He shouldn't ask her that.


Witness may answer
the question.

Yes, I do respond
to sexual requests,

but only the ones
that I want to.

And to be clear,

even if somebody requested it,

you would never cam
with somebody else in the room?


And not until your assault

had you ever had any
non-cam contact with any fan?

That's the most
important boundary.

I was acting out a fantasy.

It was roleplay.

I didn't actually
wanna be assaulted.

I was crying.
I was saying, "No."

He had to have known
I didn't want that.

Thank you, Ms. Carrera.

Ms. Carrera,

or Zoey...

Which would you prefer?

I prefer not to talk
to you at all.

But we used to talk a lot.

Every day.

- It's okay.
You need to answer.

- Yes.
- Thank you.

I'm sorry for what
I have to ask next

about sexual fantasies,

but Mr. Carisi,
he opened the door.

Just ask your question,
Mr. Miller.

I'd like to ask you
about the sexual role-play

that we've consensually
engaged in.

That's happened
between us, right?


Did I ever ask you to...

smile at me?


What about play
with your hair,

unbutton your blouse?


Touch yourself?

Your breasts?

Did you do
all of those requests?

- Objection.
She's answered the question.

I'll allow, but move on,
Mr. Miller.

Did you tell me
that you were turned on?

That you loved it?

Yes, but I was pretending.

Did you tell me
that you wanted me,

that you loved me?

[clears throat]

- I don't remember.
- Okay.

Let me refresh your memory.


You know I want you so bad.

I love you.

- Is that you?
- Yes.

How about this?

[breathing heavily]

I want you to take me.

Be rough.

[tense music]

And this?


[moaning continues]

You're not supposed
to record that.

[moaning continues]

But that was you
having an orgasm?

Faking it.


[moaning continues]

Looked real to me.

Have you ever done that
with any other relationships?

It's part of camming.
It's not real.

I want you to break in...

In a mask...

And take me.

Make me come.

What about when you said
on camera

that you wanted
to be overpowered?

I was roleplaying.
It's pretending.

When you were bent
over the chair asking for it,

didn't I do exactly
what you wanted?

I said no.

Wasn't that part
of the roleplay?

You pretend to be excited
when you're not,

but I'm supposed to believe it.

Then you say you wanna be
ravished against your will,

but I'm not supposed
to believe that.

I didn't wanna be raped.

So when you told everyone
you did wanna be raped,

that was a lie?

No... yes.

Are you lying now?

- Objection.
- Sustained.

So you lie,
you fake orgasms,

and you tell people
you love them

because you're good at it.

So how am I
or anyone in this jury

supposed to know when
you're telling the truth?

Please leave me alone.

- Your Honor, we need a recess.
- Mr. Miller.


I'm sorry, Zoey.
I didn't mean to do that.

- I didn't mean to hurt you.
- Get away from her!

- Step back now!
- Your Honor.

This was a mistake.

I can't do this.
I can't be here.


- [footsteps approaching]
- [sighs]

Zoey's calmed down.

A little.

She was having
a full-on panic attack.

Yeah, I got that.

Thanks for talking to her.

I figured she didn't
wanna talk to me.

How are you doing?

Well, you don't have
to beat me up any more

than I'm already
beating myself up.

Carisi, I don't blame you.

Neither does Zoey, okay?
She blames Gabe.

What I'm telling myself is

moves like the one
Gabe just pulled

usually don't score points
with the jury.

- But...
- Yeah.

Zoey thinks
they were looking at her

like a crazy slut
who tricked him.

Are we in trouble?

We knew this was a risk.

She's a good person who's
just trying to pay her bills.

- He's the crazy one.
- Yeah, I know that.

And my job is to make sure
the jury sees that.

How are you gonna do that?

I don't know.

Can I help?

[somber music]

I'll go be with Zoey.

That's a good idea.

Sorry to bring you back,
Mr. Hughes.

I just had a few more
questions I had to ask you.

How would you characterize

your relationship with Kendra?

Uh, well, part of it
is sexual, sure.

But it's also maybe
more emotional?

- How so?
- Kendra understands me.

I've told her a lot
of personal things.

My dreams.

And does she share with you?

Not as much as I do,

but I know she really cares
about me.

Would you say
that she loves you?

- Objection.
Putting words in his mouth.

I'll rephrase.

Can you describe your emotional
relationship with Kendra?

I'd say we love each other.

Has she said that?

More like she uses
heart emojis.


Isn't that part
of the roleplay though?

but I'll tell you what.

It's as good as any other
relationship I've had.

So it's real to you?

Have you ever tried
to contact her in person?


Absolutely not.

You can't do that.

I mean, you just can't.

Your witness, Mr. Miller.

I'm not talking to him.

My wife and I have been
camming with Kendra si...

Um, Zoey... since last August.

It's kind of like
a safe three-way.

And how would you describe
the relationship with Kendra?


She says she loves us
at the end of a session.

I mean, we're paying her,
but I think that part's real.

Thank you.

Did Zoey really say
that she loves you?

- Yes, yes.
She did.

I don't believe you.

Can you prove it?

We don't tape the sessions.

So you could just be
making that up?

Why would I do that?

- Because maybe you're jealous.
- Your Honor.

Nothing further.

I'm a trader,
16 hours a day.

I don't have time to date.

The markets close,
I pop a beer,

and I party with Kendra.

She's like my best friend
with benefits.

Have you ever tried
to contact her in person?

- Not in a million years.
- Your best friend?

What... are you gonna say
that she loves you too now?

Mr. Miller, you'll have your
turn to question the witness.

Can I answer?

If I pay her to say
she loves me, she'll say it.

It's the deal, man.

Mr. Carisi, are you done
questioning this witness?

People rest, Your Honor.

- Mr. Miller.
- No questions, Your Honor.

But at this time,
I recall Zoey Carrera.

- Objection.
- Approach.

Mr. Miller has already had
his chance to cross.

This is just harassment.

I have a new line
of questioning.


He's within his rights,
Your Honor.

I'll need to see a proffer,

exactly what you plan
on asking this witness.

And if I do agree,

you will have very narrow
parameters, Mr. Miller.

Violate them, I will hold you
in contempt.

What the hell, Carisi?

I told Zoey she wouldn't have
to testify again.

Yeah, well, you shouldn't
have done that.

- Helpful.
What do I tell her now?

You tell her that
this is the opposite

of a camming session.

Whatever he wants,
she doesn't give it to him.

I'm sorry, Ms. Carrera.

I know that you don't wanna
come back up here.

You subpoenaed me.

I'm sorry about that too,
but it's the law.

Is there a question here?

You've been warned,
Mr. Miller.

Copy that, Your Honor.

Ms. Carrera,

did you tell Larry Hughes
that you loved him?

I did.

Defense exhibit ten.

Would you please read that
out loud for the court?

"I heart you, TenlnchNail."

And by "heart,"
you mean "love"?

- Your Honor.
- Move on, Mr. Miller.


In the interest of moving on,

let's skip
to defense exhibit 22.

Would you please read that out
loud to the court, Ms. Carrera?

I'm not reading that.

- Okay.
Let me help you out.

It says,
"Out of all my cam friends,

you're the only one
I really love, Gabe."

- Doesn't it?
- Yes.

Again, I would just ask you
to read that out loud.

I don't want to.

You have to.

I can ask you any question
that I want.

Isn't that right, Your Honor?


I'm not going to do that.

- Judge, tell her.
She's my witness.

- Mr. Miller.
- Just say it.

Say, "I love you.
I love you the most, Gabe."


Judge, tell her
to answer my question

or hold her in contempt.

- Mr. Miller!
- You have to, Kendra.

You have to.

When I ask you to do something,
you do it.

- [gasps]
- That's how it always works.

Why aren't you doing
the things I'm asking you?

- Bailiffs!
- Seriously?

- Your Honor!
- I'm right here.

Why aren't you doing
what I ask, Kendra?

Take him out of here.

- What happened?
Why, Kendra?

I'm not Kendra!

Tell them you love me please.

- Order, order!
- There is no Kendra!

I'm Zoey, and you raped me!

That's the last thing
that I wanted.

No, don't... don't say that,
Kendra, don't say that.

I love you.

I love you, Kendra.

Kendra, I love you!

Kendra, I love you.

Please tell them you love me.
Kendra, please!

Tell them you love me!



Get your hands off me!
Let me go back in there!

Kendra, please!

I love you!
Tell them, Kendra!

Kendra, please!

[uneasy music]

Gabe changed his plea.

His lawyer intervened.

Attempted rape.
He'll do seven years.

- Good.
- Yeah.

- Does Zoey know?
- I called her, left a message.

Her voicemail said
she was going off the grid.

Well, first Gabe,
and then this trial.

Her whole life
has been derailed.

She can't even make
a living anymore.

You didn't protect her.

- Kat...
- I got a conviction.

- It's been a long week.
- None of us protected her.

I hear you.

Why don't you punch out, okay?
Take a few days off.

Please don't patronize me.

This never should have
happened to her.

- You're right.
It never should've.

[somber music]

Kat, let me walk you out.

- She's upset with us now?
What does she expect?

She just wants Zoey
to be able to do

whatever she wants to do.

[dramatic music]
