Law & Order: SVU Season 23 Episode 4 Recap

The fourth episode, titled ‘One More Tale of Two Victims,’ starts with newbie Joe Velasco entering the office, but the air gets tense when he is assigned Kat’s desk. Rollins suspects that Velasco might be a spy for McGrath. As speculations take hold, a new case comes in. A woman named Krystal has been sexually assaulted by a man who has also threatened to kill her son, Manny. Velasco is unwilling to believe the victim because they found sex toys in her room.

One of the DNA prints leads them to a man named Travis, the owner of an ice cream truck. Krystal identifies him, but she doesn’t think he is the assailant from the other night. Fin and Velasco also interview her ex, but his alibi checks out. As they immerse themselves into the investigation, they hear about another victim attacked in a similar manner, and this time, the woman is the daughter of a cop. While McGrath insists the two cases might not be related, Benson wants to look for commonalities.

Sure enough, it is revealed that both of the survivors visit the same ice cream shop. Therefore, Travis is arrested and then IDed by Peggy, the second survivor. However, McGrath does not want to press charges on him for Krystal’s case. He talks to someone on the phone, telling them that they owe him. Clearly, Benson is clearly disappointed in McGrath for not prosecuting Travis for the first case. McGrath further threatens to suspend Benson if she testifies.
