The SVU is called to a familiar crime scene - the beach where serial killer Greg Yates buried his many victims. When another body washes ashore, Rollins tries to coax him into confessing, but the surprising information he provides sends shockwaves through the police department. As the case goes to court, Barba faces off against two hotshot defense attorneys in a trial that leads to blackmail, an incriminating confession, a new victim and a fugitive suspect.
