A rape victim seeks help from Detective Benson after she is raped again, while Sergeant Munch retires from the SVU.


Sarah Walsh wakes up from a night of partying and believes she has been raped. In shock that it could happen again, she calls Detective Benson, who handled her previous rape case, for help. The search for Sarah's attacker leads the cops to a smooth-talking cyber mogul who preys on vulnerable girls and bribes them for their silence. Meanwhile, the SVU comes together to say goodbye to the retiring Sergeant Munch.

Background information and notes

  • This is Richard Belzer's last episode portraying John Munch as a series regular.
  • Gwen Munch, Billie Lou Hatfield, David Munch, and Meldrick Lewis all make appearances, but are all credited as "Party Guest".
  • This episode contains several parallels with the Season 10 episode Smut. In both episodes, a serial rapist takes advantage of women while under the influence of mind-altering drugs. The detectives also find a victim with no memory of the attack both times, and Benson has objections about telling the victim she was attacked, as that would actually make her a victim.
