When A.D.A. Barba's childhood friend, Eddie Garcia, is arrested for attempted rape, his connection to mayoral front-runner Alex Muñoz puts the campaign in jeopardy. However, when an undercover investigation uncovers further misconduct by Muñoz himself, Detective Amaro and the SVU team wonder if Barba can put aside personal feelings to prosecute the man he used to idolize.
