Law & Order: SVU

Saturday 22nd August 10.00pm

The seventh season of the ‘Law & Order’ spin-off following New York’s elite special victims unit continues. This week, the team arrests a rapist (guest star Dean Cain, ‘The New Adventures of Superman’) who preys on women at speeddating events. The case takes on a new complexity when the suspect’s newly wedded wife attempts suicide after testifying and he asks for the right to turn off her feeding tube.

Benson and Stabler are called to investigate a series of rapes on women in their thirties by a man wearing a ski mask and smelling of baby powder. “We need to figure out what you all have in common,” Benson tells the victims. The detectives discover that all three recently dated a man from a speed-dating event. The suspect used three different aliases but contacted the women via the same email address.

When the suspect emails the speed-dating organiser to say he will be attending the next event, Benson goes undercover to meet him. Sure enough, the man – who calls himself Jim (Dean Cain) – follows Benson home after her date, only to be arrested. At the station, Jim reveals he is in fact a well-off doctor by the name of Mike Jergens. He claims to lie about his identity to stop gold diggers. Moreover, he has an alibi for the night of the last assault – helpfully supplied by his girlfriend, Cora.

Benson believes the suspect is manipulating his weak-willed girlfriend. “Mike spent half our date badmouthing Cora,” she says. “He doesn’t love her – he just needs an alibi.” Benson approaches Cora privately and hits her with the news that Mike has been dating other women. Cora continues to defend her boyfriend until Benson plays a recording of Mike criticising her. “You took really good care of him,” the detective says, “and he’s making you cover up the truth.”

Cora confesses that she lied about the alibi and gives police permission to search Mike’s flat, where officers find baby powder and surgical tools that could be used to pick locks. The cops theorise that Mike applied the powder to his hands to stop his sweat leaving DNA at the crime scenes. However, the judge rules the search inadmissible as Cora does not live there and had no right to grant permission. The situation worsens when Benson finds Cora comatose in an alcoholic stupor. “She’s lucky she didn’t die,” says the ER doctor. It transpires that Cora is a bulimic alcoholic in need of rehab. However, her estranged mother, Virginia (Veronica Cartwright, ‘Alien’, ‘The Witches of Eastwick’), arrives and insists on taking her daughter home.

Benson and Virginia try to keep Cora sober long enough to testify against Mike in court. However, the scheming doctor steals a march on them by convincing the still-devoted Cora to marry him in a prison ceremony. Mike then tries to use ‘spousal privilege’ to stop Cora from giving evidence against him. This tactic fails and Mike is found guilty on Cora’s testimony – but not before he tricks her into believing he is about to kill himself. In a state of shock, Cora drinks herself into respiratory arrest. At the hospital, doctors report she has fallen into a coma from which she will not recover.

Mike now uses his newfound power as next of kin to have doctors turn off Cora’s feeding tube – against Virginia’s wishes. “So a rapist has more rights than her mother?” remarks Stabler in disgust. Novak encourages Virginia to fight for daughter’s life in the press, and the distraught mother appears on television to condemn the decision as ‘legalised murder’. DA Branch berates Novak for orchestrating the campaign. “Don’t let a tragedy turn into a circus,” he chides. Will Virginia win the battle to keep her daughter alive, or does Mike have one last, devious trick up his sleeve?

Saturday 8th August 10.55pm

The seventh season of the ‘Law & Order’ spin-off following New York’s elite special victims unit continues. This week, the detectives are called to a sniper shooting at a primary school. The investigation leads to a group of vicious white supremacists – but which of them is the killer?

The detectives are called to a horrific sniper shooting at a primary school. Two children have been injured, and seven-year-old Geoffrey Whitlock is already dead. At the hospital, Benson is forced to tell Geoffrey’s mother, Janice, he has died. The grieving parent tells Benson she and her husband adopted Geoffrey a year ago when they heard how many African-American children were in foster care. “We thought we were saving him,” she says. When Janice’s husband, Mark, arrives, Benson discovers he is a correctional officer at Rikers jail, leading her to wonder whether Geoffrey could have been targeted by a former prisoner. “We have to consider an inmate at Rikers with a grudge,” she says.

Munch learns that a stray bullet from the sniper rifle used in the incident pierced a classroom window, enabling the detective to determine the exact line of fire. On a nearby rooftop, the team quickly finds the gun. “Cosy little sniper’s nest,” Munch comments. No prints can be found on the weapon, but the serial number is still intact. From the code, the detectives are able to determine that the gun was shipped to Staten Island from Dakota and sold in a gun store in New York a week ago.

Stabler and Munch visit the gun shop and speak with Kyle, the 16-year-old son of owner Brian Ackerman. In the store’s basement, the detectives discover a large swastika and other Nazi paraphernalia. They also find Star Morrison, a family friend of the Ackerman family. When Stabler asks her about Geoffrey’s death, Star’s response is vitriolic. “You mean that dead little jungle bunny?” she sneers. Kyle and Munch become involved in an altercation, resulting in Kyle’s arrest.

At the station, Benson learns that Brian Ackerman is the leader of an extreme right-wing group called RAW – Revolutionary Aryan Warriors. “Brian Ackerman runs a hate group and owns a gun store – that’s an interesting combination,” says Benson. When Ackerman arrives to collect his son, the cops question him about the buyer of the rifle. “You need to describe the person you sold the sniper to,” demands Stabler. “It’s not my job to interfere with a citizen’s right to bear arms,” he replies.

The cops get a break when DNA from the shooter’s sweat is found on the gun, leading them to former convict Brannon Lee Redding. Brannon is arrested, but he refuses to give anything away. “Lawyered up as soon as he sat down,” Benson sighs. When the team discovers that Brannon was released from Rikers two weeks ago, they deduce he must have had a grudge against Mark Whitlock – but Whitlock is surprised by the skinhead’s involvement. “He wasn’t even on my block,” he says.

Novak and Brannon’s lawyer agree to a sentence of 25 years if Brannon pleads guilty – but Judge Schuyler refuses to concur. “I find this deal reprehensible. You should be ashamed of yourself, Ms Novak,” he says. A furious Brannon finally agrees to speak to Novak alone about the case. “I want a deal, you bitch!” he shouts. Brannon admits that Ackerman gave him the gun and told him to kill Geoffrey. “He conned me into doing the shooting,” he says.

During Ackerman’s trial, Star Morrison is called upon as a witness but refuses to cooperate. “There’s no way in hell I’m going to testify!” she screams. She then takes the Fifth Amendment and is dismissed. As Brannon begins his testimony against Ackerman, Kyle pulls a gun and starts shooting. Could this be the end of the line for one of the team? And does Star have her own reasons for refusing to take the stand?

Saturday 1st August 10.00pm

The seventh season of the ‘Law & Order’ spin-off following New York’s elite special victims unit continues. This week, the SVU investigates the murders of two gay men infected with a virulent new strain of HIV. Suspicion initially falls on a violent drug gang, until an AIDS activist with a grudge enters the frame.

The cops are called to a high street shoe shop where store manager Robin Weller has been stripped naked, tied up and shot dead, before being displayed in the shop window beneath the message ‘Killer’. Dr Huang is struck by the elaborate staging of the murder. “Your perp’s trying to tell a story,” he tells Cragen. “To catch him, you’re gonna need to know more about who Robin was.”

A look into the victim’s history reveals that he was a promiscuous gay man. The cops visit the home of Robin’s boyfriend, Lydon Grant, only to find that he too has been shot dead. In this instance, the victim has been left on the edge of the bed, while the message ‘Killer’ has been painted across the pillows. A blanket of crystal meth has been spread across the floor.

The meth connection leads the cops to a violent drug gang known as MKS, whose dealers visit meth-fuelled club nights known as ‘circuit parties’, lure gay men outside, then beat them up and steal their drugs. Cragen and the team lie in wait outside a circuit party that night and catch one Henry Fanello in the act. As Benson cuffs the assailant, she spots a tattoo on his arm reading ‘Killer’.

However, it seems the cops have the wrong man when ME Melinda Warner makes a startling discovery. “I think I know what ‘killer’ means,” she tells Fin, interrupting his interrogation of Fanello. Blood tests show that both Robin and Lydon were infected with the ‘killer’ strain of HIV, a virulent new form of the disease that progresses from infection to death in less than a year. “If Robin or Lydon had unprotected sex with anyone else, they could have infected their partners,” says Benson. “Making them both killers,” adds Cragen.

Theorising that the murderer must have had access to medical records, the cops visit the health department. It emerges that the department’s computer system was hacked by a janitor caught tampering with a terminal some weeks ago. The caretaker, who was fired for his troubles, is one Gabriel Thomason, an active member of AIDS campaign group Rainbow Army. When the cops look at the file Thomason stole they find a list of patients with the virulent strain of HIV – among them Robin, Lydon and Thomason’s younger brother, Alex, who recently died from the disease. “That gives Gabriel mondo motive to murder Lydon and Robin,” suggests Munch. “And let the whole world know they were killers,” adds Fin.

Thomason is duly arrested and readily admits to killing the men because they infected his brother with AIDS. However, defence attorney Carolyn Maddox seems confident she can clear her client of any wrongdoing – despite his confession. “Gabriel won’t serve a day in prison,” she asserts. At the arraignment hearing, Maddox and Thomason enter a plea of not guilty on grounds of self-defence, arguing that the murders of Robin and Lydon protected the entire gay community from death.

As the case moves to trial, the defence seems to be gaining the upper hand thanks to a convincing performance from Thomason. “Gabriel, do you think you did the right thing?” asks Maddox. “I do,” he responds. “By stopping two lives I saved thousands more.” Is the prosecution about to lose a cast-iron case, or does ADA Novak have a trick up her sleeve?

Saturday 25th July 10.00pm

The seventh season of the ‘Law & Order’ spin-off following New York’s elite special victims unit continues. This week, the SVU is called when a schoolboy known to Stabler assaults a female friend during a steroid-induced rage. Under pressure to put his work commitments before his loyalty to a former colleague, Stabler breaks down and places the squad’s reputation in danger.

The cops are called to a high school where a teenage girl has been assaulted. Though Pamela refuses to reveal who attacked her, it soon becomes clear that her best friend, 17-year-old Luke Breslin, is responsible. When the officers go to question the lad on the baseball field, he punches Fin and is promptly restrained. However, Stabler recognises the boy. “You know him?” asks a bruised Fin. “His father was my radio car partner,” replies Stabler.

At the station, Pamela explains that Luke seemed “all hyped up and weird” when he suddenly grabbed her, tried to kiss her, then tore her shirt and punched her. However, she insists that she does not want to press charges against her friend as his behaviour was totally out of character. “There must be something wrong with him,” she says. Meanwhile, Luke claims to have no memory of the incident – and Stabler believes him. “I’ve known Luke since he was a baby,” he tells a suspicious Benson. “You haven’t seen him since he hit puberty,” she replies. “He’s not so sweet any more.”

Torn between helping his old friend and doing things by the book, Stabler plays for time. He calls in a psychiatrist and contacts the lad’s father, Pete. He even goes so far as to advise Pamela’s parents not to press charges. During his examination, Dr Huang finds that Luke, a straight-A student and promising athlete, is under extreme pressure to excel and suggests he may be suffering from bipolar disorder –which could explain his erratic behaviour and memory loss. However, Cragen is furious when he learns of Stabler’s unethical exploits. “This is worse than breaking the rules,” he spits. “You put the entire squad’s credibility on the line. As of this minute, you are on vacation!”

With Stabler off the case, the other officers look into Luke’s background and soon make a breakthrough. At the gym where the lad trains, they discover a quantity of anabolic steroids in his locker. Dr Huang explains that the use of these drugs can result in bursts of violence known as ‘roid rage’. “So you’re sure that Luke didn’t know what he was doing when he attacked Pamela?” asks Benson. “With no history of violent behaviour, it is likely the steroids made him do it,” responds the doctor.

At the arraignment hearing, Luke is charged with assault and possession of a controlled substance, before being released into his father’s care pending trial. Having only just learned of his son’s drug abuse, a furious Pete drags Luke into the men’s room and begins to hit him. But Stabler bursts in and attacks his friend, knocking him down and beating him unconscious.

With blood on his hands and face, a distraught Stabler visits his psychiatrist, Dr Rebecca Hendrix, and bursts into tears. Dealing with Luke’s case brought back painful memories of Stabler’s relationship with his own father, who thought him weak and pathetic. He explains that after being dragged away from Pete by police, he stood staring into the mirror for some time, reflecting on his life. “What did you see in that mirror today, Elliot?” asks Dr Hendrix. “The guy my father always saw,” he responds.

However, things get even worse for the troubled detective when he heads to Pete’s house to apologise, only to find the man lying on the floor with a gunshot wound to his head. Luke, Pamela and Pete’s service weapon are all missing. With Stabler on the verge of a breakdown, could this disastrous case be his last for the SVU?

In the season finale, Benson and Stabler investigate when a policeman’s wife claims she is the victim of domestic abuse. The officer in question, Tommy Callahan, recently returned from Afghanistan after serving in the reserves, and enquiries into his behaviour throw up differing responses. “Callahan’s either a great guy or an unprecedented bastard, depending on who you talk to,” says Munch. The unit is about to release him for lack of evidence when Callahan suddenly explodes with rage and attacks his commanding officer.

Detectives then receive word that another cop who served in Afghanistan has just shot his wife and is holding his family at gunpoint. Benson and Stabler arrive in time to see Officer Wes Myers shoot himself in the head. Myers is rushed to hospital, where he is expected to survive. “Two cops, two different precincts, they both attack their wives. Please tell me there’s some connection,” Cragen says to Benson.

Huang’s analysis of Callahan’s condition rules out post-traumatic stress disorder, leaving a theory that he and Myers may have been contaminated by a toxin. A tip-off from a reporter leads detectives to believe that the army gave the soldiers an antimalarial drug known to produce violent side effects. But can they take on the military establishment and prove that the drug is guilty of harming its own troops?

The sixth season of the ‘Law & Order’ spin-off following New York’s elite special victims unit concludes. In ‘Parts’, the discovery of a woman’s disembodied head leads detectives to an underground organisation trading in body parts and organs. In ‘Goliath’, the unit investigates the psychotic behaviour of two army reservists who recently returned from Afghanistan.

In this week’s first episode, detectives probe the death of a woman whose head and limbs turned up in a junkyard. The victim is ex-soldier Manette Combs, who was discharged from the army after sustaining an injury to her knee. Her doctor reports that Manette became addicted to painkillers and, subsequently, heroin.

Suspicion falls on Manette’s boyfriend, Leon Schragewitz, an Orthodox Jew who works in a slaughterhouse. The cops wonder if Leon applied his butchering skills to his girlfriend, especially when they learn that Manette was prostituting herself to pay for drugs. However, DNA on the victim’s body suggests another man was involved in her death. “So we got another guy in the picture that could have killed Manette?” asks Fin.

When the police eventually catch up with Leon, he admits that he caught Manette with another man. “She made herself unclean when she touched him,” he says. But Leon insists that he loved her, and that she actually died in a fall down some subway steps. He also claims that Manette’s body was in one piece when he fled the scene.

Cragen is not inclined to believe Leon’s story, but part of it checks out when the coroner reports that a Jane Doe was found in the subway exactly where Leon says Manette fell. The woman’s body was processed by a morgue assistant named Mark Mogan. Under questioning, Mogan admits that he cut her up and sold her parts to medical science – via a fence called Russ Bianco.

Stabler sets up a sting on Bianco and catches him in the act of selling body parts to a science lab. Munch and Fin trace Bianco’s operation to a storage room full of limbs harvested from unclaimed bodies in the city morgue. “It’s a one- stop chop shop,” says Munch. ME Warner is more concerned by the sight of an intact man’s body with a partially healed scar. It would seem that Bianco was harvesting organs from living people to sell on the black market – but just how far do his unsavoury activities extend?

Friday 12th December at 11:00pm

The ‘Law & Order’ spin-off following New York’s elite special victims unit continues its sixth season. In ‘Night’, the murder of a cleaning lady puts detectives on the trail of a rapist who is targeting illegal immigrants. In ‘Blood’, a woman is attacked and her baby is thrown out of a speeding car.

In the second episode, the SVU investigates when 21-year-old Sam Beavens is sexually assaulted at a nightclub. The two attackers threw her nine-month-old baby out of her car before escaping in the vehicle. The child was unharmed in the fall, but doctors report that he has been poisoned by painkillers, which were absorbed into his body while being breast-fed by his mother.

Sam is forced to admit that she is addicted to painkillers and that she went to the club looking to score drugs. She finds herself facing charges of child endangerment, and the police soon realise she has also been lying about the nature of the assault. CCTV footage shows the attackers patting her down in search of money. “They’re drug dealers – she probably owed them,” Stabler says. “Which means she knows them,” Cragen adds. Sam reluctantly gives up the name of one of the attackers – a drug dealer called Jake who apparently robs old ladies for their prescription drugs.

One of these pensioners is Jenny Rogers, who is in the early stages of dementia. The cops assume that Jake attacked her and stole her drugs, but the dealer claims that Jenny in fact sold them to him. “So who do we believe? The junkie rapist or the crying granny?” Cragen asks. Further evidence emerges that Jenny and her daughter-in-law, Carol, were involved in dealing prescription drugs. This appears to be confirmed when Sam identifies Carol as her second attacker. However, before the detectives can get to the bottom of the case, they find Carol stabbed to death in her home…

The ‘Law & Order’ spin-off following New York’s elite special victims unit continues its sixth season. In ‘Night’, the murder of a cleaning lady puts detectives on the trail of a rapist who is targeting illegal immigrants. In ‘Blood’, a woman is attacked and her baby is thrown out of a speeding car.

In the first episode, Benson and Fin are called to a crime scene where an unidentified woman has been raped and murdered, with $100 bills stuffed in her mouth. The ME suggests the cause of death was heart failure. “He scared her to death by raping her,” Benson surmises. The trail leads to an upmarket women’s club, where a witness identifies the victim as the bathroom attendant.

The woman, Marguerite, was an illegal immigrant with a heart condition who was working two jobs as a cleaner. After dropping the victim’s father back at his home, Benson and Stabler are confronted by a community leader called Mildred Quintana, who accuses the police of failing to protect immigrants from a brutal rapist. “He’s attacked 16 women in the last three years!” she says.

At the station, Mildred repeats her claims about the serial rapist. She says that the man targets illegal immigrants who are too afraid to report his crimes for fear of being deported. Mildred reluctantly hands over the names of the victims, but only one of them can be persuaded to talk to the police – Nina Zergin, a Bosnian Muslim. Nina is terrified that her brother Milan will learn of her assault and regard her as somehow disgraced by the rapist.

Nina provides tangible evidence when she hands Benson money that the rapist gave her after the attack. Fingerprints on the bills lead to a lawyer, Jason Whitaker, whose only client is rich bachelor Gabriel Duvall (Alfred Molina). Gabriel’s mother, Eleanor (Angela Lansbury), is highly protective of her eccentric son. “His head is in the clouds,” she says of him. But Eleanor can do nothing when Nina picks Gabriel out of a line-up. It seems that the culprit has been identified, but the police soon have other worries when ADA Novak is brutally attacked in her office. Is someone trying to derail the case?

The ‘Law & Order’ spin-off following New York’s elite special victims unit continues its sixth season. In ‘Pure’, the team races against time to locate a kidnapped 18-year-old girl. And in ‘Intoxicated’, a woman urges the detectives to charge her underage daughter’s boyfriend with statutory rape.

In this week’s first episode, the SVU cops mobilise when they receive word that 18-year-old Kaley Sellers has been abducted. The kidnapper left a message on the Sellers family answer phone claiming to have snatched the girl and raped her.

After going public with the news, the detectives are distracted by the appearance of a man named Sebastian Ballentine (Martin Short, ‘¡Three Amigos!’, ‘Innerspace’), who claims to have had a vision of Kaley. Stabler sends the self-professed psychic on his way, only to run into him again at the Sellers’ house, where Ballentine is offering his help to the girl’s mother.

A furious Stabler warns Ballentine to stay out of the investigation. “That woman is out of her mind with worry – she doesn’t need your help!” he snarls. Ballentine insists that he had a vision of Kaley lying under flowing water “without being wet”, and mentions an image of a computer. This last detail seems oddly prescient when the cops learn that Kaley had been trying to auction off her virginity online in order to raise money for her studies.

The case then turns into a murder investigation when Kaley’s naked body is found in a basement. The girl has been strangled, but Stabler is more alarmed by the sight of a water pipe running over her head. Once again, Ballentine’s vision seems to ring true. “Sebastian described this,” Stabler recalls. “He said she’d be found under flowing water but she wouldn’t be wet.” This, coupled with Ballentine’s mention of a computer, is enough to throw suspicion on the alleged psychic.

At the police station, Ballentine is only too happy to co-operate and offer up evidence of his ‘psychic powers’. The detectives are determined to expose him as a fraud and connect him to Kaley’s murder,
but are frustrated to learn he has an alibi. The police have no option but to let Ballentine go – much to his dismay. “I’m not ready to leave,” he says. “We haven’t found the killer yet.” But is Ballentine as innocent as he claims?

In this week’s second episode, Benson and Stabler are called to an apartment where Mrs Denise Eldridge (Cathy Moriarty, ‘Raging Bull’) has caught her 15-year-old daughter Carrie (Danielle Panabaker, ‘Shark’) in bed with a 21-year-old lad named Justin. Mrs Eldridge insists that the police charge Justin with assault. “I caught that man raping my daughter!” she cries.

Carrie and Justin insist they did not have sex but admit that they are in love. Stabler describes the pair as a modern-day ‘Romeo and Juliet’, but whilst he sympathises with Mrs Eldridge, he affirms that there is not enough evidence to bring a charge. Mrs Eldridge responds by taking her daughter to the hospital to undergo a rape examination against her will. Benson takes pity on Carrie and calls on her old friend Simone Bryce to help the girl. Bryce is a lawyer who deals with children’s rights and immediately intervenes to prevent the exam.

A short time later, the detectives are stunned to find Mrs Eldridge bludgeoned to death in her home. “Romeo and Juliet killed themselves, not their parents,” remarks Stabler. Carrie and Justin have gone on the run and, once captured, they refuse to talk. Can Benson and Stabler figure out how young love turned to murder?

The ‘Law & Order’ spin-off following New York’s elite special victims unit continues its sixth season. In this week’s episode, four murders are connected to an Irish hit man working for a Colombian drugs cartel. But the killer’s conviction rests on the testimony of a young boy and a face from the past.
Benson and Stabler investigate the brutal slaying of a young married couple. It would appear that the pair were tortured into revealing the combination of their safe, where they kept $1million in cash.

Munch discovers that the victims were in fact laundering the money for a Colombian drugs cartel –and helping themselves to a bit of the loot. “Drug lord finds out somebody’s been ripping him off, he got to set an example,” says Fin.

The detectives liaise with their narcotics colleague, Miguel Sandoval, who helps them trace another man involved in the money laundering operation. The cops call at the suspect’s apartment, only to find that he and his wife have been gunned down. Their eight-year-old son, Antonio, has also been shot in the head but is still alive. The boy is rushed to hospital where he makes a miraculous recovery – the bullet having ricocheted off his skull.

The cops now have an eye-witness to the hit, but Antonio’s only memory of the killer is that he was a
“ghost”. A police analyst realises the boy may be referring to ‘El Fantasma’, a former IRA soldier named Liam Connors who works for the Colombian drug cartels. “No one sees him coming. No one’s left alive to see him leave,” is his description of Connors.

The case gains new urgency when forensic tests show that the bullets used in the killings match those in another unsolved homicide – that of ADA Alexandra Cabot (Stephanie March). Cabot was shot by an unidentified assailant after attempting to prosecute a Colombian drug dealer (see season 5, episode 4, ‘Loss’). She was reported as having died in the attack, and only Stabler and Benson know that she was in fact sent into witness protection.

With Connors as their prime suspect in all three cases, the detectives get a lead on his hiding place and arrest him. Under questioning, Connors denies killing anyone and mocks Stabler’s suggestion that he also shot Cabot. “Really? Did anyone see me?” he asks. Privately, Benson and Stabler know their case rests entirely on Antonio’s shoulders, but even this testimony is put at risk when the boy is almost killed in a drive-by shooting. Antonio tells Miguel he is too scared to face Connors in court.

The case looks set to collapse altogether when the judge grants Connors bail. Novak is afraid he will flee
the country, and immediately orders his re-arrest on the charge of murdering Cabot. Benson and Stabler reluctantly obey, aware that by arresting Connors on a false charge, they are in effect perjuring themselves. When Cragen learns the truth, he berates his officers for their conduct, while Benson and Stabler insist that protecting Cabot’s secret was their priority. “We did what we had to do,” says Stabler. “What you did was put your jobs and your pensions on the line,” replies Cragen.

The police captain now has no choice but to turn to Cabot for help. The former ADA realises she will have to return to New York to set the record straight and get her old colleagues off the hook. “Who else was going get you out of trouble?” she tells them. Cabot is determined to testify against her assailant, but the whole team knows that Connors’s conviction ultimately depends upon the testimony of the young boy. Will Antonio find the courage to help put the cold-blooded killer away?
