Law & Order: Special Victims Unit Season 23 Episode 2 Recap

In the second episode titled ‘Never Turn Your Back on Them,’ Danny Q is eager to help the ongoing investigation against Howard, so he finds a way to contact Jenna, the only person who could help the SVU team. Danny Q used to be an undercover cop named Joe Velasco, who excels in investigative work, and sure enough, he leads the team to a place where Jenna might be hiding. Just as Detective Kat goes in, she takes two gunshots while Velasco stops Jenna from escaping.

Kat almost flatlines but is brought back through repeated shocks followed by surgery. Velasco and Rollins realize that her father had troubled Jenna when she was younger. Her mother further tells Velasco how Jenna got pregnant with Howard’s baby when she was 15. Benson and Carisi approach Howard with all the evidence they have against him. Howard discloses that Gold is the one behind everything and that all Howard did was follow his orders.

However, as matters turn overly political, Gold remains unprosecuted. Detective Kat has a word with Benson about her future that looks bleak if she stays back in the SVU. She does not plan to follow Benson’s footsteps and spend 20+ years in the division, which she finally understands. The declining ethics of the unit prompts Garland to leave the force, as a result of which McGrath endows Benson with more responsibility.
