With Captain Cragen back in the precinct, the SVU squad is in full force and working to expose a sex trafficking operation that enslaves young women.

- Cragen: If they want to fire me, they know where to find me.
- Eames: They all have a reason. Something.
- Olivia: And that's how you break them. Get them to tell their story.
- Eames: Isn't that how you do it?
- Olivia: Well, I don't normally do it leaning over sideways. [mimicks the lean; she and Eames laugh]
