Benson and Stabler investigate an alleged rape at Hudson University, but with no forensic evidence (the incident took place months earlier) and no witnesses, it’s a truly grey area.
Actually it’s more like 50 shades of grey as the detectives stumble about without any clear idea which student is telling the truth and what the university’s disciplinary committee is covering up. “Do you expect us to believe this limp cock-and-bull story?” says ADA Sonya Paxton (Christine Lahti), newly returned from alcohol rehabilitation, but displaying a satisfying sharpness of wit.
Up against her in court is the wonderful CCH Pounder as Carolyn Maddox.
As Stabler is waiting to address a Take Back the Night rally at Hudson University, Bethany Jennings accuses fellow student Chuck Mills of raping her and the detective arrests him. ADA Sonya Paxton tells the team that since there is no clear evidence nor any witnesses, it is impossible to establish whether consent was given and Chuck must be released. However, he is soon accused of another crime. Starring Christopher Meloni.
