Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999–…): Season 9, Episode 2 - Avatar - full transcript

A young woman is abducted, and the clues to her disappearance can be found by investigating at her character in an online role-playing game. And her case may also reveal clues about an unsolved case involving another girl's disappearance.

(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.

[grunting and sobbing]

NO!

GET OFF ME!

[dialing 911]



(operator)
911.
WHAT'S YOUR EMERGENCY?

HE RAPED ME. PLEASE HELP.
(man outside door)
LET ME IN!

(operator)
OKAY, HONEY,
TAKE A DEEP BREATH.

[pounding on door]
AAH!

OPEN THE DOOR!

I PULLED UP YOUR ADDRESS.
THE POLICE ARE ON THEIR WAY.

PLEASE HURRY!

KRISTI, OPEN THE DOOR NOW!
AAH!

IS YOUR ATTACKER
STILL IN THE APARTMENT?

YES, HE'S
MY SISTER BOYFRIEND.

(Olivia)
KRISTI...

TELL US WHAT HAPPENED.

WE ALL ATE DINNER.
CHINESE TAKEOUT.

WHO WAS THERE?



ME, MY SISTER RACHEL,
AND DAN.

HE'S NOT STILL HERE,
IS HE?

YOU'RE SAFE NOW, KRISTI.

DAN CAN'T HURT YOU ANYMORE.

SO WHAT HAPPENED
AFTER DINNER?

WE TALKED FOR A WHILE,

AND THEN WE ALL
WENT TO BED.

WHAT TIME?
10:00.

RACHEL AND DAN WENT
INTO HER BEDROOM.

I WENT TO SLEEP
ON THE COUCH.

AND THEN THE NEXT THING I KNEW,
DAN WAS ON TOP OF ME.

AND HE RAPED ME.

PLEASE LET ME TALK
TO RACHEL.

I NEED TO TALK
TO MY SISTER.

EXCUSE ME, DETECTIVES.

I NEED TO SPEAK
WITH YOU NOW.

(Elliot)
WHAT'S UP?

RACHEL'S GONE.

WHERE?

YOU DON'T USUALLY GO
FOR A WALK

AFTER YOUR SISTER'S
BEEN RAPED.

I DON'T THINK SHE LEFT
UNDER HER OWN STEAM.

BLOOD ON THE BED.

AND SPATTERED ON THE FLOOR
BY THE WINDOW.

NO PRINTS, WIPED CLEAN.
SAME FOR THE FIRE ESCAPE.

RACHEL McGARRETT.
21.

(Elliot)
HER SISTER'S RAPED.
RACHEL'S MISSING.

LET'S GO TALK
TO THE BOYFRIEND.

(Olivia)
IT'S QUITE A MESS
YOU'VE MADE HERE, DAN.

WHERE'S RACHEL?

I DON'T REMEMBER.

CONK ON THE HEAD
GIVE YOU AMNESIA?

THERE'S NO WAY YOU FORGOT

RAPING YOUR GIRLFRIEND'S
LITTLE SISTER.

WHAT ARE YOU
TALKING ABOUT?

MAYBE THE PRECINCT
WILL JOG YOUR MEMORY.

LOOK, YOU'RE NOT GONNA
BELIEVE ME IF I TELL YOU.

WHY DON'T YOU TRY US?

I DID IT IN MY SLEEP.

WHAT'D YOU DO
WITH RACHEL?

YOU FORGET, OR YOU SLEEPWALK
HER INTO A DUMPSTER?

I SWEAR, I DON'T
REMEMBER A THING--

MAYBE YOU GOT
INTO A FIGHT, HUH?

GET IN FIGHT,
GET OUT OF HAND,

YOU KILL HER,
DUMP HER BODY...
NO, I DIDN'T.

THEN YOU HAD TO GET
RID OF KRISTI

BECAUSE SHE COULD
FINGER YOU...
NO, NO, LOOK.

YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND.
OKAY, I HAVE THIS CONDITION.

AND I HAVE A HEADACHE.

YOU HIS LAWYER?

ANNA BENTLEY.

MY CLIENT SUFFERS
FROM AROUSAL PARASOMNIA.

IT'S A REAL DISORDER.

HE HAD SEXUAL INTERCOURSE
WITH KRISTI McGARRETT

WHILE HE WAS ASLEEP.

(Dan)
LOOK, RACHEL KNOWS
ABOUT MY CONDITION, OKAY?

SHE LOVES IT.

SHE SAYS WHEN I'M ASLEEP,

IT'S THE BEST SEX
SHE'S EVER HAD.

HE WAS SO VIOLENT.

HE WAS GRUNTING AND PANTING
LIKE AN ANIMAL.

HOW LONG
HAVE YOU KNOWN HIM?

I MET HIM FOR THE FIRST TIME
YESTERDAY AT THE TRAIN STATION

WHEN HE AND RACHEL
PICKED ME UP.

SO YOU'RE VISITING.

FROM BOSTON.
I CAME TO LOOK AT COLLEGES.

SHE TOLD ME THAT
SHE WAS IN LOVE WITH HIM.

HOW COULD HE DO THIS?

NOW IF RACHEL'S
SO HOT FOR YOU

WHEN YOU'RE, UH,
SLEEP SEXING,

WHY'D YOU RAPE KRISTI?

RACHEL MUST'VE
ALREADY BEEN GONE.

YEAH, BECAUSE YOU GOT
RID OF HER.

THAT'S WHERE THE BLOOD
IN THE BEDROOM CAME FROM.

NO, LOOK, I WOKE UP AFTER
KRISTI CUT ME WITH THE GLASS.

WHEN I WENT IN THE BEDROOM
TO TELL RACHEL

SHE WASN'T THERE!

YOU CAN'T ARREST MY CLIENT
FOR A RAPE

HE DIDN'T KNOW
HE WAS COMMITTING.

DAN'S ATTORNEY'S RIGHT.

WE CAN'T CHARGE HIM
WITH THE RAPE.

IF IT LOOKS LIKE A RAPE
AND ACTS LIKE A RAPE--

IT IS A RAPE,
UNLESS THE ACCUSED

ISN'T CONSCIOUS
OF WHAT HIS BODY'S DOING.

IT'S LIKE A SLEEPING MOTHER
WHO ROLLS OVER ON HER BABY.

HER BODY DID IT, BUT HER MIND
WASN'T AWARE OF IT.

WELL, IT STILL
DOESN'T EXPLAIN

WHAT HAPPENED
TO RACHEL.

I THINK THAT IT DOES.

WHEN A PATIENT WITH SEXSOMNIA
HAS AN EPISODE,

HE'LL SEEK SEEK WITH
WHOEVER'S AVAILABLE.

I THINK
THAT HE RAPED KRISTI

BECAUSE RACHEL
WAS ALREADY GONE.

I GOTTA TELL YOU,
IT SOUNDS LIKE A COVER-UP

FOR KILLING RACHEL
AND DUMPING HER BODY.

THERE'S NEVER BEEN
A CASE OF SEXSOMNIA

LINKED TO A HOMICIDE.

YOU'RE TELLING ME
THERE'S NO CONNECTION

BETWEEN DAN ATTACKING KRISTI
AND RACHEL'S DISAPPEARANCE.

IF SHE'S IN LOVE
WITH DAN,

I DOUBT SHE'D LEAVE
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.

I THINK RACHEL
WAS KIDNAPPED.

DID YOUR SISTER EVER MENTION
ANYBODY BOTHERING HER?

GIVING HER THE CREEPS?

NO, RACH WOULD'VE
TOLD ME.

KRISTI, I'M SO SORRY.

I NEVER MEANT
TO HURT YOU!

SHUT UP!

NOTHING YOU SAY
WILL BRING MY SISTER HOME!

KRISTI!
DAD!

IS THIS THE GUY?
DAD!

BACK OFF.
BACK OFF!

MR. McGARETT, I UNDERSTAND
THAT YOU'RE UPSET--

WHAT DO YOU
EXPECT ME TO DO?

HE TOOK MY DAUGHTER!
WE DON'T THINK
THAT HE'S INVOLVED.

YOU DON'T THINK
HE'S INVOLVED?

HE RAPED KRISTI.

WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO
ABOUT THAT?

THERE'S NOTHING
WE CAN DO.
WHAT?!

HE HAS A MEDICAL CONDITION

THAT MADE HIM UNAWARE
OF HIS ACTIONS.

AND THE LAW SAYS
THAT WE CAN'T CHARGE HIM.

THIS IS A NIGHTMARE.

WE ARE WORKING AROUND
THE CLOCK

TO FIND YOUR DAUGHTER.

GOOD, BECAUSE SO FAR
ALL YOU HAVE DONE

IS HIDE BEHIND THE LAW!

MR. McGARRETT--
NO EXCUSES!

FIND MY DAUGHTER!

(Lu)
I TOOK HAIR FROM A BRUSH
IN RACHEL'S ROOM.

TYPED HER DNA,
AND THEN COMPARED IT

TO THE BLOOD
ON THE SCENE.

DNA ON THE LEFT
IS RACHEL'S.

THE RIGHT'S
FROM THE BLOOD.

THEY DON'T MATCH.

BUT THIS DOES.

DNA FROM A BLOOD SAMPLE
DAN GAVE

WHEN HE PARTICIPATED
IN A PARASOMNIA STUDY

AT HUDSON MED SCHOOL.

SO DAN TOLD THE TRUTH.

HE BLED
ALL OVER THE BEDROOM

WHEN HE WENT IN
TO LOOK FOR RACHEL.

[cell phone beeps]
AT LEAST WE KNOW RACHEL
WASN'T HURT BADLY.

WELL, THAT'S ALL WE KNOW.

WHOEVER TOOK HER
DIDN'T LEAVE

A SHRED
OF FORENSIC EVIDENCE.

I'M GETTING A TEXT HERE
FROM MY CAPTAIN.

HE WANTS ME TO TURN ON
CHANNEL FOUR.

DO YOU MIND?

(McGarrett)
LAST NIGHT,

ONE OF MY DAUGHTERS
WAS RAPED.

THE INCOMPETENT DETECTIVES

AT MANHATTAN'S
SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT

REFUSED TO CHARGE
HER ATTACKER.

AND IF THIS TRAGEDY
ISN'T HORRIBLE ENOUGH,

MY DAUGHTER RACHEL WAS
ABDUCTED FROM HER BED.

WE'RE REACHING OUT
TO THE PUBLIC FOR HELP.

MY FAMILY IS OFFERING
A $50,000 REWARD

FOR ANY TIP LEADING
TO RACHEL'S SAFE RETURN.

IF YOU HAVE INFORMATION,
PLEASE...

CALL...MANHATTAN
SVU's TIP LINE.

CAPTAIN, WOMAN CLAIMS
SHE SAW RACHEL

EATING A CHILI DOG
IN TIMES SQUARE.

WANTS THE 50 GRAND
IN 20s AND 10s.

REWARD OFFER BRINGS OUT
ALL KINDS OF CRAZY.

ONE BOGUS LEAD
AFTER THE NEXT.

FOLLOW THOSE TWO.

MAYBE NOT!

WHO'S IT NOW,
PSYCHIC HOTLINE?

A FRIEND
OF RACHEL'S.

YOU STILL THERE,
GINGER?

(Ginger)
YES.

TELL THE DETECTIVES
WHAT YOU JUST TOLD ME.

I THINK RACHEL'S
IN ANOTHER YOUNIVERSE.

ANOTHER YOUNIVERSE IS
A VIRTUAL REALITY GAME.

RACHEL AND I PLAY ONLINE
ALL THE TIME.

IS THAT
HOW YOU KNOW RACHEL?

NO, WE MET AT ART SCHOOL.

SAW AN AD FOR ANOTHER YOU
IN THE STUDENT UNION,

SO WE CHECKED IT OUT.

THIS IS MY AVATAR,
TAWNY COPPERCUFFS.

SHE'S MY ALTER EGO
IN ANOTHER YOUNIVERSE.

THIS IS MY HOMEPAGE.
IT'S REALLY COOL.

YOU CAN DO ANYTHING IN A.Y.,
JUST LIKE IN THE REAL WORLD.

I'LL SHOW YOU VIDEO
FROM MY GAME DIARY.

HERE'S ME SHOPPING.

I HAVE A CHAUFFEUR.
AND THIS IS MY DOG REX.

THAT'S WHERE I BOUGHT
MY VIRTUAL CAR.

AND THIS ONE'S
ME AND MY FRIENDS

HANGING OUT BY THE POOL.

WHO DOES RACHEL
HANG OUT WITH?

SHE WAS AT MY VIRTUAL
CONDO LAST WEEK. SEE?

HI, VIXY.

AND WHAT IS RACHEL'S
AVATAR'S NAME?

VIXY PLATINUM.

SHE'S VIXY.

YOU'RE TAWNY.

SOUNDS LIKE A COUPLE
OF STRIPPERS.

ACTUALLY, YOU'RE CLOSE.

RACHEL AND I USE A.Y.
TO EXPLORE OUR FANTASIES.

WHAT KIND OF FANTASIES?

WE OWN A COUPLE
OF VIRTUAL SEX CLUBS.

HOW DO AVATARS HAVE SEX?

SAME WAY AS HUMANS DO.

ONLY IN A.Y.
IT'S JUST ANIMATED.

I'LL SHOW YOU.

HERE'S ME AND VIXY

ENTERTAINING
A COUPLE OF DATES.

[whip cracking]

SO YOU CAN DO ANYTHING
YOU WANT,

AND YOU AND RACHEL
CHOSE TO BE PROSTITUTES?

IT'S A FANTASY,
NOT A CRIME.

PLUS IT'S SAFE.

SEX FOR MONEY
WITH NO RISK OF STDs

OR GETTING PREGNANT.

WE'RE NOT HURTING
ANYBODY.

SOMEONE MAY HAVE
HURT RACHEL.

THIS IS HER CLUB.

"VIXY PLATINUM'S
UNDERAGE WONDERSTAGE."

"LIVE SEX NUDE."

THERE'S A WHOLE NEW WORLD
OUT THERE

JUST WAITING FOR PERVERTS.

WHO ARE ALL THESE GUYS
HOLDING SIGNS?

(Ginger)
THOSE ARE RACHEL'S FANS.

SHE PERFORMS
EVERY DAY AT 2:00 P.M.

BUT SHE DIDN'T SHOW TODAY.

THEY MISS HER ALREADY.

(Olivia)
SO EACH ONE OF THESE AVATARS

STANDS IN FOR A REAL GUY.

(Ginger)
YEAH.

(Chester)
WITH THIS MANY
DEVOTED CUSTOMERS,

SHE MUST BE A REAL PRO.

RACHEL IS IN HER TWENTIES.
HER AVATAR'S WEARING PIGTAILS.

SHE LOOKS LIKE A KID.

THAT'S BECAUSE
HER AVATAR IS 14.

I TOLD YOU, IN A.Y. YOU CAN
BE ANY AGE YOU WANT.

OR ANY AGE
YOUR CUSTOMERS WANT.

A 14-YEAR-OLD SEXPOT MUST
ATTRACT DOZENS OF FREAKS.

VIRTUAL SEX
WASN'T ENOUGH.

THIS PERV WANTED
RACHEL FOR REAL.

(Chester)
RACHEL McGARRETT LEADS
A DOUBLE LIFE.

ART STUDENT
IN THE REAL WORLD.

14-YEAR-OLD HOOKER
IN THE GAME.

AND THIS
CARTOON CHARACTER

CAN CHARGE A CARTOON JOHN
FOR CARTOON SEX?

OR ANYTHING THAT CAN BE
BOUGHT AND SOLD,

JUST LIKE
IN THE REAL WORLD.

(Chester)
VIRTUAL REAL ESTATE.
VIRTUAL FOOD.

VIRTUAL CLOTHES.

YOU PAY THE PRICE, AND IT'S
YOURS ON THE COMPUTER SCREEN.

AND PAY FOR ALL THIS
WITH WHAT?

VIRTUAL CASH.

WHICH CAN BE EXCHANGED
FOR REAL MONEY AT ANY TIME.

AND WE'RE THINKING
ONE OF RACHEL'S

VIRTUAL COSTUMERS
WANTED REAL BODY CONTACT?

WELL, IT'S THE ONLY LEAD
WE HAVE.

SEX CLUBS.
GAMBLING.

THIS PLACE IS LIKE
A ONLINE VERSION

OF THE WILD WEST.

WITH ITS OWN SHERIFF.

ERIK WINTON.

HE DESIGNED THE GAME.

(Olivia)
AND HE'D HAVE ACCESS

TO ALL THE AVATARS'
PERSONAL INFORMATION.

(Winton)
I'LL DO WHAT I CAN,

BUT WE HAVE 5 MILLION
PLAYERS IN A.Y.

AND HOW DO YOU KEEP
TRACK OF ALL OF THEM?

WE DON'T USUALLY.

THE FREEDOM
TO FOLLOW YOUR DESIRES

IS THE WHOLE POINT
AROUND HERE.

WE THINK ONE OF
YOUR GAMERS' DESIRE

GOT A LITTLE
OUT OF CONTROL.

WE'D APPRECIATE IT
IF YOU PLAYED BIG BROTHER,

TELL US WHO
VIXY'S CUSTOMERS ARE.

HERE'S VIXY'S PROFILE.

AND HERE'S HER CLUB.

(Olivia)
WELL, WHERE'D ALL
THE PERVERTS GO?

BUNCH OF HER AVATAR FANS WERE
THERE A FEW HOURS AGO.

THEY'VE MOVED
ON IN THE GAME,

BUT I CAN PULL UP
A SCREEN CAP AT THE TIME

THAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.

[computer beeps]

THESE GUYS ARE
VIXY'S REGULARS?

YEAH, THEY LIVE
AROUND THE WORLD.

BERLIN, DENVER,
TEL AVIV, LONG BEACH.

HOW DO THEY COMMUNICATE
WITH HER?

CHAT WINDOWS?
EMAIL?

(Winton)
NO, SHE WRITES A BLOG,
THEY READ IT.

EVERY AVATAR KEEPS ONE.
I'LL BRING UP VIXY'S.

(Olivia)
HER LAST ENTRY'S LABELED
"STALKER" DATED YESTERDAY.

12 HOURS BEFORE
RACHEL DISAPPEARED.

CLICK ON THAT.

I'M BEING STALKED.

HAD TO BAN THIS SCUMBAG
FROM MY CLUB A FEW DAYS AGO.

AND THAT'S WHEN THINGS
GOT BAD.

I'M WORRIED MY A.Y. STALKER
HAS GONE REAL WORLD.

LAST NIGHT I SAW
A SHADOW MOVE.

I HEARD FOOTSTEPS
BEHIND ME.

TO ALL YOU GIRLS
RUNNING CLUBS,

WATCH OUT FOR THIS CREEP.

HIS AVATAR'S NAME IS
WIT BILLIONS.

(Winton)
I'VE SCANNED
HER ACCOUNT DATA.

TURNS OUT THERE WAS
ONLY ONE REGULAR CUSTOMER

NOT PRESENT
AT TODAY'S VIGIL.

LET ME GUESS.
WIT BILLIONS.

[computer beeping]

(Winton)
I'LL BRING UP HIS PROFILE.

HIS PERSONAL
INFORMATION'S HIDDEN,

BUT I CAN UNLOCK IT
WITH MY ACCESS CODE.

[typing on keyboard]

REAL NAME TOBIN WILLIS.

HOME ADDRESS
RIGHT HERE IN THE CITY.

ALL RIGHT, TOBIN,
WHERE'D YOU STAY THE GIRL?

WHAT GIRL?

YOU WANT TO PLAY GAMES.
PLAY THIS ONE.

WHAT DO YOU GET
WHEN YOU REARRANGE

THE LETTERS
OF YOUR NAME?

ANAGRAMS ARE FUN,

ESPECIALLY WHEN IT
MAKES OUR JOB EASIER.

[bell rings]

WELL, LOOK AT THIS.

THAT'S YOUR AVATAR.

YOU'RE THE EXECUTIONER.
WHAT?

YOU EXECUTE HER,
WILLIS?

I'VE NEVER SEEN
THAT GIRL BEFORE.

YOUR AVATAR HAD
VIRTUAL SEX WITH HER

HUNDREDS OF TIMES
IN ANOTHER YOUNIVERSE.

I NEVER PLAYED THAT GAME!

SURE YOU DID, FRIEND.

WE HAVE YOUR ACCOUNT INFO

AND THE CREDIT CARD RECORDS
FROM YOUR MEMBERSHIP FEES.

SOMEBODY MUST'VE
STOLEN MY CARD

AND OPENED AN ACCOUNT
IN MY NAME.

THIS IS A MISTAKE!

WE'LL SEE WHO MADE
THE MISTAKE

WHEN OUR DETECTIVES SEARCH
YOUR COMPUTER.

TARU's SCANNING
HIS HARD DRIVE NOW.

ANYTHING IN THE LIBRARY?

JUST EVERY BOOK EVER
WRITTEN ABOUT HEAD CHOPPERS.

GUY'S INTO SOME
PRETTY GRUESOME STUFF.

(Olivia)
THIS EXECUTIONER
LOOKS LIKE HIS AVATAR.

EXECUTION IS SOMETHING
I READ ABOUT.

NOT SOMETHING I DO.

SURE IT IS.

YOU'RE A LOCK FOR THIS.

AND YOUR SICK OBSESSION
WITH AN AVATAR

MADE YOU KIDNAP
ITS CREATOR LAST NIGHT.

LAST NIGHT?
I WAS AT SHEA STADIUM.

YOU AND 50,000
OTHER PEOPLE.

GAME WENT
INTO EXTRA INNINGS.

I DIDN'T GET HOME
UNTIL AFTER MIDNIGHT.

MY BROTHER-IN-LAW GAVE ME
HIS COMPANY'S TICKETS.

SAID TO TAKE A FRIEND.
WHAT YOUR FRIEND'S NAME?

I COULDN'T GET ANYBODY
TO GO WITH ME.

BUT I SAW MYSELF ON
THE JUMBOTRON A DOZEN TIMES.

THERE'S WILLIS,
FRONT ROW.

RACHEL WAS TAKEN
BETWEEN 10:00 AND 11:00

WHEN KRISTI CALLED 911.
MM-HMM.

WHEN'S THE LAST TIME
WILLIS IS ON CAMERA?

11:30.
HE EVER
LEAVE HIS SEAT?

NOT EVEN FOR THE SEVENTH
INNING STRETCH.

LAPTOP GOT A CLEAN
BILL OF HEALTH FROM TARU.

NOTHING ON WILLIS'
HARD DRIVE.

HE'S PROBABLY
PLAYING A.Y.

FROM UNTRACEABLE
INTERNET CAFES.

THIS CAT'S BEING SMART.

TOO SMART.

HE JUST HAPPENS
TO POP UP ON CAMERA

RIGHT AT THE TIME
OF THE CRIME

AND THERE'S NOTHING
ON HIS COMPUTER.

YOU KNOW WHAT?

MAYBE HE'S WORKING
WITH A PARTNER.

THAT'S EASY ENOUGH
TO FIND OUT.

THE AVATAR INTERACTION GRID

ALLOWS ME TO SCAN
FOR EVERY MEETING

BETWEEN AVATARS
IN ANOTHER YOUNIVERSE.

HERE'S EVERY SINGLE AVATAR
YOUR MAN WILLIS

EVER INTERACTED WITH.

WHEN I SET THE FILTER

FOR TWO MORE
INTERACTIONS,

THE NUMBER SHRINKS.

HE MET THESE PEOPLE
AT LEAST TWO TIMES.

I'LL SEARCH FOR THREE
OR MORE MEETINGS.

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST,

FOUR MEETINGS OR MORE.

SO VIXY AND SMARTY CULOTTES
ARE THE ONLY TWO AVATARS

HE MET WITH FOUR
OR MORE TIMES.

SMARTY'S GOTTA BE
HIS PARTNER.

(Winton)
THEY SPEND ENOUGH
TIME TOGETHER.

HERE'S WILLIS AND SMARTY
ON A SNOWCAPPED MOUNTAIN TOP,

A BEACH,
A VIRTUAL MALL.

AND HERE THEY ARE
FLOATING IN A SPACESHIP.

WHEREVER ONE GOES,
THE OTHER GOES WITH HIM.

PARTNERS IN CRIME.

THEY MET
IN ANOTHER YOUNIVERSE

AND MADE THEIR FANTASY
RACHEL'S NIGHTMARE.

WHAT SMARTY CULOTTES'
REAL NAME?

USER'S NAME IS
NESTOR BUCHANAN.

HE DIDN'T GIVE
A HOME ADDRESS,

BUT LISTED
HIS EMPLOYER THERE.

"COOPER'S RARE BOOKS."
I KNOW THAT PLACE.

MR. LAKE.

I WAS JUST GONNA CALL YOU.

I TRACKED DOWN
AN EARLY EDITION

OF THE SUN ALSO RISES.

YOU A COLLECTOR?

HEMINGWAY.

NO DUST JACKET, BUT IT'S
IN GREAT CONDITION.

ARE YOU INTERESTED?
NOT TODAY.

WE'RE LOOKING
FOR NESTOR BUCHANAN.

HE'S MY ASSISTANT.

HE'S IN BACK.
FOLLOW ME.

WHERE'S YOUR COMPUTER?

NESTOR'S ON IT NOW.

HE HANDLES ALL
OUR INTERNET ORDERS.

NESTOR.
YEAH?

(Chester)
POLICE.
STAND UP.

ONE SECOND.

STEP AWAY
FROM THE COMPUTER NOW.

ONE SECOND I SAID.

HEY, DON'T TOUCH THAT!

WHERE'S RACHEL?

NESTOR, WHERE'S RACHEL?

WHO?

RACHEL McGARRETT,
THE GIRL YOU KIDNAPPED.

WELL, WHAT DO YOU KNOW?

HE'S PLAYING
ANOTHER YOUNIVERSE.

LAST CHANCE, SMARTY.
WHERE IS SHE?

I TOLD YOU, I DON'T
KNOW ANY RACHEL.

OKAY.

NESTOR BUCHANAN,
YOU'RE UNDER ARREST

FOR THE KIDNAPPING
OF RACHEL McGARRETT.

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT
TO REMAIN SILENT.

ANYTHING YOU SAY
CAN AND WILL BE

USED AGAINST YOU
IN A COURT OF LAW.

YOU KIDNAPPED
AN INNOCENT GIRL!

YOU'RE OUT OF YOUR MIND.

NO, YOU'RE OUT OF LUCK.

WHAT'S THIS?

PROOF THAT YOU'RE
WORKING WITH WILLIS.

WHO?

YOUR PARTNER
IN PEDOPHILE LAND.

YOU'RE NUTS.

THAT'S ME IN THE RED,

BUT I DON'T KNOW
WHO THE EXECUTIONER IS.

HE NEVER TOLD ME
HIS REAL NAME OR HIS LOCATION.

HE'S LOCATED HERE.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND.
THAT'S TOBIN.

(Olivia)
OH, SO YOU DO KNOW HIM?

HE'S A CUSTOMER
AT THE STORE.

HE COLLECTS BOOKS
ABOUT EXECUTIONERS.

I DO HIS SPECIAL ORDERS,

BUT I NEVER TALKED TO HIM
ABOUT A.Y.

WHAT'S GOING ON?

WHO ELSE DO YOU KNOW
PLAYS A.Y?

COLLEGE FRIENDS.

MY COUSIN JULIE
IN TORONTO,

MY OLDER SISTER,

MY BOSS--

MR. COOPER, THE ONE
WHO OWNS THE BOOKSTORE?

YEAH, I INTRODUCED HIM
TO IT SIX MONTHS AGO.

TAKE A SEAT BACK THERE

WHILE WE FIGURE
THIS THING OUT.

COOPER'S OUR LINK
BETWEEN THESE GUYS.

HE OWNS THE BOOKSTORE.

HE HAS ACCESS TO WILLIS'
CREDIT CARD.

HE STOLE THE INFORMATION
AND USED IT TO CREATE

AN AVATAR WITH WILLIS'
NAME ON IT.

AND HE HUNG OUT
WITH NESTOR IN THE GAME

TO MAKE 'EM LOOK
LIKE PARTNERS.

COOPER SET BOTH
THESE GUYS UP.

HE ABDUCTED RACHEL.

I DON'T THINK
HE STASHED RACHEL HERE.

TOO MUCH FOOT TRAFFIC
OUTSIDE.

THERE'S NO ROOM INSIDE.

THIS PLACE DOESN'T
EVEN HAVE A CLOSET.

COMPUTER'S GONE.
HE TOOK THE WIRES.

HE LEFT THIS.

A KEY FROM STORE STUFF.

THAT'S THE PLACE
UP IN WASHINGTON HEIGHTS.

MAYBE COOPER PUT
RACHEL IN A LOCKER.

(Olivia)
RACHEL'S NOT HERE.

LOOKS LIKE HE WAS
EXPECTING US.

"IT'S NOT WHAT YOU THINK.
LEAVE US IN PEACE."

I'M CALLING NOVAK.

THIS WILL DEFINITELY GET US

A WARRANT TO COOPER'S
APARTMENT.

BASTARD
TOOK THE COMPUTER.

COOPER'S GOT US
ON A WILD GOOSE CHASE.

I LIFTED LATENT PRINTS
ALL BELONGING TO COOPER.

DOESN'T LOOK LIKE A WOMAN
WAS BEING HELD HERE.

BUT THIS GIRL
LOOKS FAMILIAR.

(Lu)
WHERE HAVE YOU
SEEN HER BEFORE?

ANOTHER YOUNIVERSE.

SHE LOOKS LIKE
VIXY PLATINUM.

TOO CLOSE NOT TO BE
THE SAME GIRL.

YEAH, THAT'S
RACHEL'S AVATAR,

BUT WHO'S THE GIRL
IN THE PICTURE?

LOOKS LIKE A "TO DO" LIST.

"BUY MEDS.

TRANSFER 5,000
A.Y. FUNDS."

"J.T., 718...

"555-0108."

[ring tone]

(man)
JEPSON-TAYLOR REALTY.

HOW MAY I DIRECT
YOUR CALL?

OUR REALTY COMPANY
HAS NO RECORDS

OR WORKING WITH JULIAN COOPER
OR NESTOR BUCHANAN.

BUT I RENTED THIS WAREHOUSE
TO TOBIN WILLIS

TWO WEEKS AGO.

IS THIS THE GUY?

WE NEVER MET.

EVERYTHING WAS DONE
BY MAIL OR OVER THE PHONE.

CAN YOU I.D. HIS VOICE?

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA
HOW MANY CALLS I MAKE IN A DAY?

HOW DID HE PAY
HIS RENT?

MONEY ORDER
FOR SIX MONTHS UP FRONT.

DO YOU REMEMBER
ANYTHING ELSE?

[exhales]

JUST ONE THING
BECAUSE IT WAS WEIRD.

HE WANTED SOMETHING
IN A DESERTED AREA.

LIKE A CABIN
IN THE WOODS.

STAY HERE.

PERFECT PLACE
TO HOLD A GIRL CAPTIVE.

YEAH.

[woman moaning]

LISTEN.

OH, GOD.

DETECTIVE OLIVIA BENSON.
I NEED A BUS.

WAREHOUSE
AT THE INTERSECTION

AND GOULDEN
AND BEDFORD PARK BOULEVARD.

SHE'S BARELY
BREATHING.

RACHEL, RACHEL,
YOU'RE GONNA BE OKAY.

JUST STAY WITH ME, OKAY?

JUST STAY WITH ME.
YOU'RE GONNA BE FINE.

CHECK OUT
THESE SUITCASES.

COOPER WAS
ABOUT TO MOVE HER.

[engine starts]

AND WE JUST INTERRUPTED HIM!

[sirens in distance]

YOU HEAR THAT, RACHEL?

THAT'S THE AMBULANCE.
YOU'RE GONNA BE OKAY.

I DIDN'T MAKE
HIS LICENSE PLATE.

HE DIDN'T TAKE
THE PHARMACY WITH HIM.

CHECK OUT THE TRAY
IN THE CORNER.

LOOKS LIKE THE MEDICINES
TO BUY ON HIS "TO DO" LIST.

DOMOSEDAN,
KETAMINE AND VALIUM.

SLEEPING MEDS
AND ANIMAL TRANQUILIZERS.

THAT WOULD PUT
HER LIGHTS OUT.

OR AT LEAST KEEP HER
SEMICONSCIOUS

DEPENDING ON
THE COMBINED DOSAGE.

CAN RACHEL TALK
TO US YET?

WELL, HER SYSTEM'S
BEEN TO HELL AND BACK,

BUT SHE'S STABILIZED.

YOU'VE GOT
FIVE MINUTES.

THANK YOU.

(Rachel)
I DON'T KNOW.

UM, HE...

HE WORE A MASK WHEN
HE TOOK ME FROM MY ROOM.

DID HE EVER TAKE IT OFF?

I WAS SO OUT OF IT.

I NEVER REALLY GOT
A CLEAR LOOK AT HIM.

RACHEL...

WHAT HAPPENED THAT NIGHT?

I FELT A SHARP PAIN
IN MY NECK.

LIKE A NEEDLE.

AND I TRIED TO SCREAM,
BUT...

HE PUT HIS HAND
OVER MY MOUTH.

AND THEN I PASSED OUT.

WHEN I WOKE UP, HE...

HAD ME TIED TO A BED.

HE RAPED ME.

HE...

RACHEL...

DID HE EVER TALK
ABOUT TAKING YOU SOMEWHERE?

UM...

YEAH, UM...

HE WANTED TO TAKE ME
TO HIS CABIN IN THE WOODS.

DOC CALLED.
THE RAPE KIT WAS NEGATIVE.

COOPER MUST'VE USED
A CONDOM.

ANY PRINTS
AT THE WAREHOUSE?

PLACE WAS SPOTLESS.

GOT COOPER'S INFO
FROM DMV.

PUT A BOLO OUT
ON HIS PLATE.

NOTHING BACK.

SENT HIS PICTURE
TO MTA,

AIRPORTS, AND AMTRAK.

AND WE FLAGGED
HIS CREDIT CARDS.

HE WON'T GET FAR.

BUT MAYBE
GREGORY SEARLE WILL.

WHO'S GREGORY SEARLE?
IT'S COOPER'S REAL NAME.

HIS PRINTS MATCH THE ONE
AT COOPER'S APARTMENT.

25 YEARS AGO HE DID TIME

AT GREEN HAVEN
IN DUCHESS COUNTY.

FOR RAPE?

NO, KIDNAPPING.

15-YEAR-OLD GIRL
NAMED LAUREN MOLBY.

SEEN HER BEFORE?

(Olivia)
THAT'S THE GIRL
FROM THE PICTURE

IN COOPER'S APARTMENT.

RACHEL'S AVATAR
LOOKS JUST LIKE LAUREN.

COOPER DECIDED TO RELIVE
THE GLORY OF HIS OLD CRIME

IN VIRTUAL REALITY.

WELL, LET'S FIND HIM

BEFORE HE GRABS
ANOTHER INNOCENT GIRL.

IT'S DéJà VU
WITH YOUR KIDNAPPER.

JULIAN COOPER,
AKA GREGORY SEARLE.

HE GRABBED LAUREN MOLBY
FROM HER BEDROOM

IN THE MIDDLE
OF THE NIGHT.

(Elliot)
THEY EVER FIND HER?

NO, BUT THE DUCHESS
COUNTY D.A.

[cell phone rings]
IS CONVINCED HE KILLED HER.

STABLER.
HOW'D THEY GET HIM?

STRANDS OF LAUREN'S HAIR
WERE FOUND ON HIS PICKUP.

NO DNA BACK THEN
TO GET AN EXACT MATCH.

THEY GET HIM
ON KIDNAP TWO?

YEAH, "B" FELONY,
20 YEARS DETERMINATE.

NO PAROLE.

EXPLAINS HOW HE WAS ABLE
TO REINVENT HIMSELF,

COME BACK--
NOBODY CHECKED ON HIM.

JUST GOT A HIT ON COOPER.

HE'S IN A BUS TERMINAL
IN QUEENS.

FIN AND LAKE ARE
ON THEIR WAY.

[P.A. giving bus information]

TAKING THE 10:15
TO MONTREAL?

MR. LAKE, CANADA IS
BEAUTIFUL THIS TIME OF YEAR.

CANADA'S CLOSED, BUT RIKERS
IS STILL OPEN FOR BUSINESS.

LET'S GO.

I'LL BE BACK IN TIME
TO CATCH THE 2:40.

WE'LL SEE
IF YOU'RE SO COCKY

AFTER RACHEL McGARRETT
IDs YOUR VOICE.

WE'RE TOO LATE.

RACHEL DIED
20 MINUTES AGO.

I THOUGHT DOC SAID
SHE WAS STABILIZED.

SHE WAS UNTIL SHE WENT
INTO RESPIRATORY ARREST.

COURTESY OF THIS SCUMBAG
AND HIS DRUG COCKTAIL.

THAT POOR CHILD.
I HOPE YOU FIND HER KILLER.

I'M SORRY, I'M LATE.
I HAVE A BUS TO CATCH.

THE ONLY THING
THAT YOU'RE GONNA CATCH

IS A LIFE SENTENCE.

THE GAME IS OVER
FOR YOU, PAL.

I DIDN'T KILL
THAT GIRL.

THAT GIRL'S NAME
WAS RACHEL.

AND SHE'S DEAD BECAUSE
OF YOUR SICK OBSESSION.

YOU'RE NOT JUST A KILLER,
YOU'RE A COWARD.

SETTING UP THESE TWO SAPS
TO TAKE THE FALL FOR YOU.

NO, NESTOR'S YOUR MAN.

HE HAS ACCESS TO THE SAME
CUSTOMER RECORDS THAT I DO.

AND HE PLAYS
THAT COMPUTER GAME.

I DON'T.
SURE YOU DO.

HE INTRODUCED YOU
TO ANOTHER YOUNIVERSE

SIX MONTHS AGO.

AND I HAVEN'T THOUGHT
ABOUT IT SINCE.

THINK ABOUT THIS.

"TO DO" LIST FOUND
IN YOUR APARTMENT.

NESTOR HAS A KEY.
HE PLANTED IT.

WHAT ABOUT THE LETTER
ADDRESSED TO US

IN YOUR STORAGE LOCKER?

THAT LOCKER'S NOT MINE.

THAT BELONGS TO THE SHOP.

I HAVEN'T BEEN THERE
IN TWO YEARS.

NESTOR HANDLES
OUR INVENTORY.

I GUESS HE PLANTED
THAT NOTE.

AND I BET THAT HE HUNG
THIS PICTURE

OF LAUREN MOLBY
ON YOUR WALL.

NO.

THIS BELONGS TO ME.

YOU DID 20 YEARS
FOR KIDNAPPING HER.

I PAID MY DEBT TO SOCIETY.

PRISON WAS A NIGHTMARE.

YOU THINK I'D COMMIT A CRIME
AND RISK GOING BACK?

I THINK
OLD HABITS DIE HARD.

MINE DIED IN JAIL.
I CHANGED.

I TOOK OVER
THE INMATE LIBRARY.

I FOUND SOLACE IN BOOKS.

WHY THE FAKE IDENTITY?

ONCE YOU HAVE A RECORD,

PEOPLE THINK THE WORST,
LIKE YOU.

I WANTED A FRESH START.

THAT'S WHY I OPENED
A BOOK STORE.

TO BRING PEOPLE
HAPPINESS.

YOU'RE CHASING
THE WRONG GUY.

BASTARD'S GETTING AWAY
WITH TWO MURDERS.

BUT I DON'T GET IT.

THE AVATAR LOOKS LIKE LAUREN,
HIS FIRST VICTIM.

RACHEL DOESN'T RESEMBLE
HER IN THE SLIGHTEST.

PSYCHOLOGICALLY,
THAT'S IRRELEVANT.

TO POSSESS THE CREATOR
OF THE AVATAR

IS TO POSSESS
THE AVATAR ITSELF.

SO WHEN HE RAPED RACHEL
AT THE WAREHOUSE--

IN HIS MIND, HE WAS HAVING
SEX WITH VIXY PLATINUM.

BUT HOW DID HE FIND
RACHEL IN THE REAL WORLD?

WELL, HE PROBABLY
PAID SOME HACKER

TO TRACE RACHEL'S IP ADDRESS
BACK TO HER APARTMENT.

"PROBABLY" IS NOT
ENOUGH TO HOLD HIM.

NOW, COOPER'S BEEN THROUGH
THE SYSTEM--HE KNOWS THAT.

JUST GOTTA GET
A CONFESSION OR HE WALKS.

NO PRESSURE.

USE LAUREN TO GET HIM
TALKING ABOUT RACHEL.

IN HIS MIND, THE TWO GIRLS
ARE ONE IN THE SAME.

LAUREN'S HOME
WAS HELL ON EARTH.

HER MOTHER DRANK
LIKE A FISH.

HER FATHER
BEAT HER SENSELESS.

I RESCUED HER.
OH, MY HERO.

YOU DON'T BELIEVE THAT,

BUT I AM A HERO
TO LAUREN.

SHE NEVER SUFFERED
ANOTHER DAY.

IS THAT HOW YOU REMEMBER IT
BEFORE YOU KILLED HER?

I DIDN'T KILL HER.

YOU'RE OBSESSED WITH LAUREN.
YOU STILL ARE.

WE LOVED EACH OTHER.

YOU DON'T FORGET
THE BEST YEAR OF YOUR LIFE.

YOU TWO HAD
A LITTLE LOVE NEST?

I DROVE EVERY OTHER DAY
FROM STOTTVILLE

TO SEE HER
AT OUR PLACE.

WHERE WAS THAT?

NICE TRY.

OF COURSE THE COPS
WOULDN'T LEAVE ME ALONE.

THEY RUINED
A PERFECT THING.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN
PERFECT?

HEAVEN.

DAY BEFORE I WAS CAUGHT,

I TOLD HER
SHE COULD LEAVE.

LAUREN SAID NO...
OUT OF LOVE.

SHE STAYED WITH ME
WILLINGLY.

RACHEL WOULDN'T,
SO YOU DRUGGED HER.

YOU DRUGGED HER
AND SHE'S DEAD.

(Olivia)
YOU'RE LOOKING

AT A VERY LONG STRETCH
IN A VERY SMALL CELL.

(Cooper)
NO, YOU'RE LOOKING

AT MY BACK AS I WALK
OUT THE DOOR.

YOU'VE HAD HOURS.

BUT YOU HAVEN'T CHARGED ME...

BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT NOTHING.

THANKS FOR THE WALK
DOWN MEMORY LANE.

IT'S BEEN A THRILL
TO SEE THIS STUFF

AFTER ALL THESE YEARS.

GOOD-BYE, DETECTIVES,
COUNSELOR.

IF WE COULD FIND
LAUREN MOLBY'S BODY,

WE COULD CHARGE HIM
WITH HER MURDER

AND WE COULD BUILD
RACHEL'S CASE

USING THE CRIMES
UPSTATE AS PRECEDENT.

THIS GUY ALREADY RAN
ONCE BEFORE.

WE NEEDED THAT BODY,
LIKE, YESTERDAY.

MAYBE IT'S IN THE GAME.

WHAT?

HE WAS GONNA TAKE RACHEL
TO A CABIN IN THE WOODS.

PEOPLE IN A.Y.
CAN BUILD ANYTHING.

MAYBE HE BUILT
A DIGITAL DREAM HOUSE

THAT CAN LEAD US
TO LAUREN'S BODY.

WHOLE THING STARTED
IN THE GAME.

MAYBE HE'S GOT
SOMETHING ELSE BURIED THERE.

IT'S OUR BEST LEAD.

IF YOU CAN USE THE A.Y. GAME

TO FIND LAUREN'S BODY, HE WON'T
STAND A CHANCE IN COURT.

I'M SOLD.
HERE'S THE PLAN.

OLIVIA, YOU GO
TO WINTON'S OFFICE.

ENTER THE GAME.

FIND A CABIN
OR ANYTHING ELSE WE CAN USE

TO LOCATE LAUREN'S BODY.

ELLIOT, YOU TAIL COOPER.

WE CAN'T ARREST YET,
BUT STAY CLOSE

AND ALERT US IF HE MAKES
A RUN FOR THE BORDER.

COOPER'S ON THE MOVE.

COPY, EL.

OUR RECORDS INDICATE THAT
COOPER PURCHASED LAND

IN ANOTHER YOUNIVERSE.

HE USED OUR SOFTWARE TO BUILD
A CABIN AND A LAKE, LOOK.

CAN YOU GET
INSIDE THE CABIN?

NO PROBLEM.

SOMEBODY ELSE'S
AVATAR LIVES HERE.

SHE'S ASLEEP.
NO, HE PURCHASED
THAT AVATAR,

PROGRAMMED IT
SO HE'S THE ONLY ONE

WITH THE POWER
TO WAKE HER UP.

JUST LIKE
SLEEPING BEAUTY.

WHAT DOES IT SAY
ON THE BED FRAME?

GOOD EYE.
I'LL BLOW UP THE IMAGE.

"LAUREN."

HIS FIRST VICTIM.

COOPER WAS LOOKING
FOR A NEW CABIN IN THE WOODS

TO TAKE RACHEL.

I BET YOU THAT THIS IS
A VIRTUAL REPLICA

OF THE ONE HE USED
TO STASH LAUREN.

I CAN RUN OUR SOFTWARE
TO COMPARE WHAT HE BUILT

IN A.Y. WITH TOPOGRAPHICAL
MAPS OF NEW YORK STATE.
DO IT.

CAPTAIN, WE'RE WORKING
ON A POSSIBLE LOCATION

FOR LAUREN'S BODY.

(Cragen)
COPY THAT.

I'LL SEND FIN
AND LAKE UPSTATE.

ELLIOT, WHAT'S YOUR 20?

COOPER JUST STOPPED
FOR A CAFFEINE FIX.

YOU GETTING WIRED
FOR A LONG DRIVE?

IT'S DECAF.
SENSITIVE STOMACH.

WOULD YOU CARE FOR A CUP?
MY TREAT.

YOU HAD A SECOND CHANCE
AND YOU BLEW IT.

WHAT IS IT,
YOU COULDN'T FIGHT THE URGE

TO RAPE AND MURDER AGAIN?

I DID NOT HURT
THAT GIRL.

YEAH, YOU DID.

AND WE'RE GONNA PROVE IT

WHEN WE FIND YOUR CABIN
AT THE LAKE.
YOU WON'T.

BUT GOOD LUCK TRYING.

(Winton)
THIS PROGRAM WILL COMPARE
THE DIMENSIONS

OF THE LAKE COOPER DESIGNED
TO A DATABASE

THAT CATALOGS
BODIES OF WATER

FROM ALL OVER
NEW YORK STATE.

[beeping]

WE GOT SOMETHING.
FIN, WE GOT IT.

TWIN ISLAND LAKES
OUTSIDE PINE PLAINS.

WE'RE ON OUR WAY.

I'LL CALL AHEAD TO THE COPS
IN DUCHESS COUNTY.

(Elliot)
BETTER GET UP THERE QUICK.

COOPER'S IN A CAB
ON THE GRAND CENTRAL PARKWAY.

(Fin)
PROBABLY HEADED

TO THE INTERNATIONAL
TERMINAL AT KENNEDY.

WE NEED LAUREN'S BODY NOW,
OR THIS GUY IS GONE.

LIV, YOU GOT AN EXACT
LOCATION OF THE CABIN?

NOT YET.
HE DESIGNED IT
WITH A SAFETY CATCH.

(Winton)
ANY TIME A VISITOR
MOVES UP TO BIRD'S EYE VIEW

THE CABIN DISAPPEARS.

OKAY, IS THERE ANOTHER WAY
TO GET THE LOCATION?

SUNLIGHT.

THE CLOCK
IN ANOTHER YOUNIVERSE

IS PEGGED
TO EASTERN STANDARD TIME.

THAT'S WHY IT'S NIGHT
IN THE GAME NOW.

IF THE SUN WAS SHINING,
WE COULD SEE WHICH DIRECTION

THE HOUSE FACES, ERGO WHICH
SIDE OF THE LAKE IT'S ON.

SO TURN ON THE SUN.

WE'VE NEVER
DONE THAT BEFORE.

(Fin)
OLIVIA, WE'RE A FEW
MILES AWAY.

DUCHESS COUNTY COPS
ARE ALREADY AT THE LAKE,

BUT IT'S HUGE.

THEY DON'T KNOW
WHERE TO START.

JUST GIVE ME A MINUTE.
TURN THE SUN ON.

(Elliot)
OKAY, HE'S PULLING UP
AT THE TERMINAL.

IT'S NOW OR NEVER.

YOU HEARD HIM.
DO IT NOW.

I'M ABOUT TO SERIOUSLY
FREAK OUT FIVE MILLION PEOPLE.

DO IT.

[power surges]

THE CABIN IS ON
THE EAST SIDE OF THE LAKE.

STOP RIGHT THERE!

THIS IS PRIVATE PROPERTY!

THIS IS GREGORY SEARLE'S CABIN.

WHO ARE YOU?

I'M LAUREN.

WHERE'S GREGORY?

IS HE WITH YOU?

I'VE BEEN WAITING
FOR HIM...

FOR 25 YEARS.

CAP, WE FOUND
THE CABIN.

(Cragen)
START THE SEARCH.

SEARCH IS OVER.

LAUREN MOLBY
IS ALIVE.

(Elliot)
IS THIS SOME KIND OF JOKE?

NO, IT'S END OF THE LINE.

HE'S OUR GUY.

(Cragen)
BUT WE DON'T HAVE A BODY
TO PIN ON HIM.

LAUREN'S ALIVE.

WE'VE GOT NO REASON
TO BRING HIM IN.

[horn honks]

HEY, WATCH IT,
YOU IDIOT!

(Elliot)
HEY, YOU IN A HURRY THERE?

DETECTIVE STABLER,
COME TO SEE ME OFF?

NO, I CAME
TO ARREST YOU.

FOR WHAT?

YOU CROSSED ON THE RED.
DIDN'T YOU SEE THE LIGHT?

YOU'VE GOTTA BE
KIDDING ME.

YOUR SAFETY'S
NO LAUGHING MATTER.

OH, WE FOUND YOUR CABIN.

THAT'S NOT ALL.

PLEASE...

YOU GOTTA LET ME
SEE HIM.

I'VE WAITED YEARS FOR THIS.

I'VE LOVED HIM
SINCE I WAS 15.

[nervous laugh]

WHAT, YOU THINK A 15-YEAR-OLD
CAN'T FALL IN LOVE?

I HAVE TEENAGE DAUGHTERS
THAT FALL IN LOVE

ALL THE TIME.

WELL, I'M STILL
IN LOVE WITH HIM.

WHY DIDN'T YOU COME
FORWARD AT HIS TRIAL?

[exhales]

BECAUSE THEY WOULD'VE
SENT ME BACK.

I RAN AWAY AND HID

SO I'D NEVER
HAVE TO SEE THEM AGAIN.

WHO?

MY BASTARD FATHER

AND HIS DRUNK BITCH
OF A WIFE.

ANOTHER WEEK
UNDER THAT ROOF,

HE WOULD'VE BEATEN ME
TO DEATH.

SO WHAT DID YOU DO
FOR FOOD, FOR MONEY?

AFTER GREGORY LEFT,

I WENT INTO TOWN AND GOT
A JOB WAITING TABLES.

IT WAS 50 MILES
FROM MY HOMETOWN.

NO ONE WAS LOOKING
FOR ME THERE.

WHY WON'T YOU LET ME
SEE HIM?

HE KIDNAPPED A WOMAN.

YOU'RE LYING.

(Elliot)
HE KEPT HER STRAPPED
TO A BED IN A WAREHOUSE.

HE INJECTED HER
WITH DRUGS.

I DON'T BELIEVE YOU.

HER NAME WAS
RACHEL McGARRETT.

THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE
TOOK HERS.

YOU'VE GOT COMPANY.

GREGORY.

[laughing and crying]

IT'S ME.

I KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

DON'T YOU STILL LOVE ME?

WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU?

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

YOU GOT SO OLD.

[exhales]

YOU'RE SICK.

[sobbing]

THIS GIRL
THEY TOLD ME ABOUT...

RACHEL...
WHAT DID YOU DO TO HER?

I RESCUED HER
JUST LIKE I RESCUED YOU.

YOU KIDNAPPED HER

BECAUSE SHE REMINDED YOU
OF ME.

HER AVATAR DID.

I GOT A SECOND CHANCE.

BUT RACHEL DIDN'T
LOVE ME.

I LOVED YOU.

TOO LATE.

AAH!

YOU KILLED HER!

DIDN'T YOU?

THERE WENT THE LOVE
OF YOUR LIFE.

THAT WASN'T THE LAUREN
I FELL IN LOVE WITH.

(Elliot)
WHAT WERE YOU GONNA DO?

KEEP RACHEL
CHAINED TO A DESK

PLAYING
VIXY PLATINUM FOREVER?

IF THAT'S WHAT IT TOOK.

SHE'D NEVER GROW UP
IN A COMPUTER.
