The Special Victims Unit must contend with a neighborhood vigilante group while pursing a serial rapist.
A string of rapes in West Soho inspires a group of vigilantes to organize against both neighborhood crime and the NYPD. Even as the reporter Dennis Griscomb takes every opportunity for publicly subjecting police efforts to hostile criticism, the SVU squad struggles to find a lead in the case until one of the vigilantes is attacked.
As the other detectives fight for control over the investigation and angry citizens, Amaro is distracted by the suspicion that his wife is seeing another man.
Eventually the rapist proves to be one of the vigilante group's members, who was doing all he had done to stay close to the woman he loved--a woman who had no feelings, beyond friendship, for him.
Meanwhile, Amaro's wife proves, not to be having an affair, but instead to have been seeing a psychiatrist in secret.
