As Amaro takes Lena away, Benson gives Rollins a very serious look. Lena made no admissions.
Barba gives her an eye rolling glare, and Rollins says sorry, that was stupid. Barba comments that Lena knew her enough to disclose that Gene had raped her, and Rollins says she knew she was an SVU detective, When Barba asks if Rollins told her that, Rollins pauses, clears her throat, and thinks it must have come up at a meeting.
Rollins adds — just to confirm — that what people share at those meetings is privileged, right? Barba informs her that ethically yes, but legally, no, so if there is anything someone shared that speaks to this case, now would be the time to tell him. Rollins quickly says no, nothing, but she does know that Lena has been through a lot. Barba finishes his notes and thanks her, with a strange look on his face. When asked if Lena ever said she was afraid of Gene, Benson pauses but the judge orders her to answer the question.
Benson admits yes, she did. Benson enters and comments that Rollins got her friend a good lawyer, and Rollins replies that Efron wanted this case. Benson tells Rollins she knows she is worried about her friend, but maybe Rollins should put the focus on herself right now. Rollins says yeah, right, and walks off while Fin gives a concerned look to Benson.
At the AA meeting, Nate talks about being sober 10 years, and as he talks about trusting in his higher power, we see Amaro has joined the group and sees the look that Nate gives a young woman who is there. After the session, he asks Nate to talk to him about finding a sponsor but Nate seems interested in the woman he eyeballed earlier while he was speaking.
When she asks if Nate needs to talk with Amaro, Nate tells Amaro he has a lot on his plate right now but Amaro should keep coming back. As Nate walks off with the woman, Amaro says to himself that he will do that. He tells her he gets it, she was missed. Rollins thinks that she might have to, the way things are going, and the defense is calling her tomorrow and she is anxious about it.
Nate says one thing to remember is to detach with love, the one who drags you down.
The next day in Supreme Court, Melissa testifies that Gene told her that evening that Lena had threatened them both. Gene had struggled with alcohol and sex addictions and was doing everything he could to extract himself from a relationship with someone who was more emotionally damaged that he realized. Melissa adds that Lena sent her texts saying Gene was hers and an explicit video of them in bed, he was trying to break them up.
Efron objects and the judge sustains it, strikes the comment from the record and warns Barba to mind his witness. Barba gives a half hearted apology.
Efron questions Melissa about Gene marrying her, but brings out that no date was set or booked a venue, and that Gene kept seeing Lena. Efron asked if the night Gene called her, was he giving himself a cover as to why he was in that building. When Melissa states Gene was in fear, Efron brings up the fact that Lena was half his size and he went with Lena to the roof to have oral sex on the ledge of a six story building. Efron thinks Melissa only knew one side of Gene, and Melissa admits yes.
Amaro says she does not know this guy. Rollins says he was spying on her life. Does that work with Maria? Rollins shouts that she knows what a 13th stepper is and that is not him. Amaro asks if one of the other 12 steps it to sleep with your sponsee? She storms out the door and Amaro says she does not seem happy to him.
She turns back and gives him a huge, fake smile. She then says she does not want to take his inventory but he is jealous of Olivia and Brian and Olivia and Barba, and even Cragen. Fin has walked in and tells them both stop.
The whole squad room can hear them. She turns to Amaro and says he is not her father and then turns to Fin and says neither is he. She walks out and slams the door, leaving Fin and Amaro there staring at each other. Back in Supreme Court Rollins is on the stand for the defense saying based on her experience as an SVU detective, she found Lena's disclosure credible.
Rollins advised her to stay away from him. Efron states it is not easy to break ranks with the DA and appreciates her willingness to speak truth to power.
She does, somewhat uncomfortably. Barba said that was how she described the assault, and Rollins says yes. She says no, she hoped that Nate was going to be there when she testified. She says no, and he replies he thought he did. She did not want that, she thought he wanted it. The texts were what she knew Gene wanted her to say, she was afraid of him. Efron asks why Lena continued to see Gene and invite him over, and Lena said she did not think she could do any better and thought if she could make him happy he would change and be nice to her.
Barba questions her about the consensual sex and inviting him back for more and then accusing him of rape. Lena said she was angry that he raped her but Barba reminds her she invited him back the next night for oral sex on the rooftop ledge. Barba questions that while he was in a vulnerable position right after he had an orgasm that Gene attacked her? Lena states he was pulling at her and grabbing her hair, Barba asks if Gene was trying to keep from being pushed over?
Lena says no, and then yes, then says to stop yelling it affects her memory, her dad would yell. Barba quietly says he is not yelling now, then comments he would like to know why she lied to the police so many times. Lena looks to Efron, who nods, and Lena gives no reply. Barba asks if accusing Gene of rape was part of her plan of she killed him she could claim self defense? As Rollins, who is sitting in the gallery, stares ahead, Efron objects, accusing Barba of traumatizing Lena.
The judge tells her to save it for their summations and adjourns. Amaro waits in the courthouse hallway and stops Barba as he exits. Amaro compliments him on a nice job, but Barba said it is tricky, if you push too hard you risk playing to her victim status, if you go to easy…Amaro asks if the defense is calling anyone else, and Barba says her sponsor, adding that she will lay the groundwork to confirm Lena was afraid of Gene. Amaro asks that when Nate is on the stand, even if he is her sponsor, everything is fair game?
Barba asks if there is something he wants to tell him about. Back at SVU, Benson comments that Brian is making dinner - clam sauce — so she will see them tomorrow if she survives. Rollins says she is pulling a double tonight so she can be there when Nate testifies. Benson wishes her good luck, but Amaro tells Rollins she does not want to do that.
