The Special Victims Unit searches for two suspects spotted fleeing the scene after a Muslim woman is assaulted inside a synagogue. Meanwhile, Benson is dismayed to find out Rob Miller is out on bail.


Outside the courtroom, Nahla thanks the Detectives for everything they’ve done. Her parents then come out and her mother tells her that if she thinks that she has lost their love then she is wrong, with her father voicing their approval of her for coming forward. Touched by this declaration, she proceeds to hug her parents. At that point, a Muslim man comes out and calls Nahla a disgrace before assaulting her, causing her forehead to bleed. This causes court guards to restrain him, while Nahla is tended to by Benson and her assistant while her parents confront the man who shouts slurs at her.

Meanwhile Benson takes no are out to a restaurant for dinner. However, Noah notices Rob Miller watching them before Rob comes up to them. Rob introduced himself to Noah while Benson is worried about what he could do.
