When a twelve-year-old girl and her younger sister end up in the hospital after a day at the park, detectives learn that both girls were abducted from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina along with a third sister who is still missing. Despite the interference of a local reporter, Jackson Zane, detectives are able to catch the kidnapper, a known pedophile, and recover the girl, but when Alvin Dutch dies and the autopsy determines it was anthrax, Benson puts everything on the line so that she can get the truth that the people deserve out there.

Why, Santa, why?

–John Munch discovers the FBI cleaned out the squad room's evidence

Who do we call when we've been raped?

–Odafin Tutuola discovering the squad room's evidence has been cleaned out

Federal Officer: The federal government is prepared to deal with any and all exigencies.
Munch: Sure, by calling in the black helicopters.
Tutuola: For once, he's not being paranoid.

If people are too stupid to prepare for all eventualities, then they're too dumb to live. I view it as natural selection.

–Michael Delpit

I give them your name, they win. There's no freedom without free press. Now, I chose to write this story. And I'll take the consequences. Good-bye, Olivia. Don't come back.

–Jackson Zane to Olivia Benson while in jail
