(Scene opens with a woman walking her dog on a city street)

Mrs. Crenshaw
(tacky-looking older woman walking her poodle)
When we get home, Mommy's gonna fix you a nice piece of toast.  Would you like that?  Yes, you would.
(the poodle dumps between two parked cars)
Oh, good doggy.  I think I'll just leave that right there.  No one's even gonna notice.  Come on.  We're going home now.
(the poodle starts barking and pulls Mrs. Crenshaw into an alley)
Tootsie, come back here.  Where are you — Tootsie.
(the poodle starts sniffing in some garbage bags)
Oh, you bad doggy.  You know you're not supposed to dig in other people's garbage.  Is that a fur coat?  Oh, yes it is.
(picks up a garbage bag, revealing a white fur coat lying under the garbage bags)
Why anybody would throw away...
(Mrs. Crenshaw sees legs and bare feet poking out from under the coat.  She pulls back the coat to reveal the mutilated face of a woman)
Oh, no!  Tootsie!  Get away!  Get away from her right now!
(runs away)

(Cut to police cars parked by the sidewalk near the crime scene — Benson and Stabler pull up in their sedan — Benson's driving BTW)

Uniform Officer
Victim's Livia Tellez, 23, from Queens.  Found her naked, pocketbook in the trash, money and cards still in it.

Stabler
You find her clothes?

Uniform Officer
(points at Mrs. Crenshaw)
Just wearing the fur.  Old bat wants it when you're done.

Benson
What's the story?

M.E. Warner
Hasn't been dead more than 12 hours.  No stab or gunshot wounds.  You can see the trauma to the left side of her face and torso.  Beat her to death.

Benson
Rape kit?

M.E. Warner
Positive for fluids.  She was moved post-mortem, too.  Lividity looks like she died on her back, but she was on her side when they found her.

Stabler
Sounds like a dump job.  Question... Why here?

Benson
She's got a boyfriend in the neighborhood.  He starts smackin' her around, she grabs the coat, tries to leave.

(M.E. Warner is digging in the victim's mouth)

Stabler
Or she's a high-priced call girl.  John's got some fantasy of her wearing nothing but the coat, only this time the john's a psycho.

M.E. Warner
I'm guessing whatever she was, she said something she shouldn't have.

Stabler
How do you figure that?

M.E. Warner
Guy cut out her tongue.  I don't see it around here.  You might want to check out that dog.

Mrs. Crenshaw
(being questioned by a cop, coddles her dog)
Such a big help....

(scene fades)
 

Opening Credits
 

(Scene opens in the victim's apartment building — Munch and Fin are talking with the building super)

Building Super
Dug up the tenant application.  I didn't really know her, but she seemed nice.  Pretty.  Pretty girl.

Fin
How long Ms. Tellez live here?

Building Super
Little more than two years.  No problems.  Paid on time.

Munch
I don't see any references or previous addresses.

Building Super
(unlocks the door to the victim's apartment and leads the detectives inside)
Same with half the people in this building.  I figured she was illegal.  Then I say, hey, this whole country was founded by illegals, so who am I to judge?

Munch
Where's she from?

Building Super
Puerto Rico maybe, or Mexico.  I can't tell.

Fin
You say she lived here two years.  This place doesn't look very homey.

Building Super
Wasn't home much.  Probably had a boyfriend.  But I never saw anybody.  Look, uh, I got a leaky pipe to look at.
(walks out of the apartment)

Munch
We'll let ourselves out.

Fin
Okay, you live like a monk.  How come somebody wouldn't have any pictures or knickknacks around?

Munch
(digging through a dresser drawer)
Some of us appreciate simplicity.  Others of us lost the knickknacks in the divorce settlement.  Look at this.  An airplane ticket stub from Miami, dated the day she died.

Fin
(looking in the closet)
This is where she spent all her money.
(flipping through the clothes in the closet)
Dolce & Gabbana, Versace.  Got to be $50,000 worth of ho gear here.

Munch
(holding up a social security card)
A hooker who pays taxes.  Social Security card.  She's not illegal.
 


 

(Cut to Munch and Fin walking through  the squad room)

Stabler
TRW and Equifax both show no activity on that Social prior to June, 2001.  No bank accounts, no student loans, no jobs.  All of her credit cards were issued around the same time also.

Benson
DMV says that Livia Tellez was issued a New York State drivers license same month, same year.  No prior driving record in any other state.

Cragen
Nobody knew anything about this girl?

Munch
Neighbors were passing acquaintances.

Fin
Vital statistics doesn't have anything on her or any living relative.

Cragen
We can rule out identity theft.  Can't steal an identity that didn't exist till a couple of years ago.

Benson
Everything that we've found says that Livia Tellez just appeared out of nowhere.

Cragen
What about witness protection?

Stabler
We checked.  She's not one of theirs.

Munch
Feel free to express your derision and ridicule, but I'm gonna say it — Spook.

Fin
I'm not ridiculing.  We've probably got spies from every country all over this city.

Cragen
Ah, before we call in the CIA, let's see if the body can shed some light on who this girl really was.
 
 

OFFICE OF THE MEDICAL EXAMINER
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 22

 

M.E. Warner
Tox screen came back positive for cocaine.

Benson
She have any tattoos?  Anything that could help us identify her?

M.E. Warner
No prominent scarring or birthmarks.  But I did find this tangled in her hair.
(hands Benson a necklace)
Chain was broken, I imagine during the attack.  No prints on it, other than her own.

Benson
Madonna and child, but I don't recognize the image.

Stabler
It's a woman with a halo holding a baby.  My mother had 10 of them.

Benson
So she's a Catholic Latina.
(sarcastically)
That'll narrow it down.

M.E. Warner
Other than the face and torso wound, there's a scrape on her leg.  I found slivers of fiberglass in it.
(hands Benson a plastic bag)

Stabler
That doesn't match anything CSU found at the dump site.  Maybe it happened where she was attacked.

M.E. Warner
Maybe this'll help you with the location.
(walks over to the other side of the room, where the fur coat is hanging)
Lab said they found a powdery substance imbedded in the fur.  I asked them to send it over.  I wanted to test my theory.  Cobalt thiocyanate.
(grabs a spray bottle and sprays the coat, turning it purple)

Stabler
Cocaine.

M.E. Warner
She was covered in it.
 


 

(Cut to Benson and Stabler walking out of the M.E.'s building)

Benson
That much coke, could be a dealer.  Maybe in a room wearing that fur when they were cutting the base?

Stabler
She wasn't living the life of a dealer.  No drugs, no money, or assets were found in her apartment.

Benson
Call girl still works if she was helping the dealer distribute.
(stops)
It explains the trip down to Miami.

Stabler
Let's keep walking.

Benson
What is it?

Stabler
Gray Chevy Caprice across the street.  Two white males inside.

Benson
Sitting on us?

Stabler
They were here before we went to go see Warner.

Benson
Who?

Stabler
I don't know.  Let's go ask them.

(Stabler and Benson run towards the car and it speeds off)

Benson
What the hell is this?  Internal Affairs?

Stabler
Let the rat squad spin their wheels.  Let me take a look at that necklace again, huh?

(Benson pulls it out of her pocket and hands it to Stabler)

Stabler
So, Livia Tellez is a hooker with a soul, huh?  Sounds like someone Sister Peg would want to save, doesn't it?

(Benson nods)
 
 

SISTER PEG'S MOBILE HELP UNIT
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 22

 

Sister Peg
Sorry, Detectives, I've never seen her.  But I'll say a prayer.

Benson
She went by Livia Tellez from Queens.  Can you show this to some of the girls and see if they knew her?
(hands Sister Peg a picture)

Sister Peg
(takes the picture and slips it into her pocket)
Of course.

Stabler
Dental dams, 1,000 count.  Business must be booming.  Can't keep them on the shelves.

Benson
Sister Peg, you ever see this image before? (shows her the necklace)

Sister Peg
Looks like the Blessed Virgin of the Rosary.  Our Lady of Chiquinquira.

Stabler
I've never heard of her.

Sister Peg
This image is based on a miraculous painting.  See how she's standing on the crescent moon?

Benson
Our victim was wearing this.  Does it mean anything significant?

Sister Peg
Our Lady of Chiquinquira is the patroness of Colombia.  I'd guess that's where your victim was from.  Father Castrillon is the pastor of St. Augustine's in Queens.  A lot of his congregation is Colombian.  If she practiced her faith, maybe he knew her.
 


 

(Cut to Munch and Fin talking with Father Castrillon)

Father Castrillon
Last time I saw Livia, she seemed so troubled, but she wouldn't let me help.

Munch
When was that, Father?

Father Castrillon
Two or three months ago.  She stopped coming to mass around then.

Munch
I'll bet she was a member of the parish for, like, two years?

Father Castrillon
That's right.

Fin
She tell you where she was before that?

Father Castrillon
No.  She was very secretive.  I think she wanted to tell me.  That's why I asked her to come to confession, that God will forgive all.  She promised, as soon as she finished her work.

Fin
She say what kind of work?

Father Castrillon
No, but it must have paid well.  When she first came to this parish, she donated all her furniture for our charity drive and wouldn't take a cent for it.  Just asked us to pick it up from storage.

Munch
Do you happen to remember where that storage facility was?

Father Castrillon
We hired a moving van to go get it.  But I believe we have the invoice from the moving company, so perhaps it has the address.
 
 

STOR-IT-ALL SELF STORAGE
QUEENS, NEW YORK
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 22

 

Benson
Okay, here we go.  Livia Tellez's unit.  Paid for in cash, three years in advance. (holds the lock on the door so Stabler can break it)

Stabler
Everything we want to know about her, all in one room.

Benson
Ah, 1999 taxes.
(grabs box and pulls a folder from it, opens it and reads it)
Filed under Livia Sandoval.  It's a different Social altogether.

Stabler
But she didn't change her first name.
(Sees a box in front of him)
There's something here from 2001.  That's the year she changed to her new identity.
(opens a black box he pulled from the box and stops)
Liv.

Benson
What?

(Stabler turns the box, revealing a police badge)

Benson
She was a cop.

DEA Agent Hammond
Detectives.

Stabler
(looks at the DEA agents)
I didn't know there were rats in here.  It's the gray Chevy Caprice boys.

Benson
Why you guys tailing us?

DEA Agent Hammond
(flashes his badge)
Agents Jack Hammond, Tim Donovan.  Drug Enforcement Administration.  I think it's time we all had a sit-down, don't you?
 


 

(Cut to the Cragen, Benson, Stabler, and DEA agents walking into Cragen's office)

Cragen
Why is the DEA following my detectives?

DEA Agent Hammond
Needed to make sure they weren't working for the people that we were investigating.

Stabler
You sure now?

DEA Agent Hammond
If I weren't, you'd already be in federal lockup, Detective Stabler.

DEA Agent Donovan
Officer Sandoval's prints were red-flagged in the system.  When you ran them, it tipped us off.

Benson
And it never occurred to you that we ran them because we were investigating her murder.

DEA Agent Donovan
At the time, I didn't know she was dead.

DEA Agent Hammond
Officer Sandoval checked in every two weeks with Agent Donovan to minimize exposure.  A week ago she was alive and did not indicate any problems.

Stabler
She got burned?

DEA Agent Donovan
We have two other operatives inside.  They say her cover was intact.  We're not sure why she was killed.

Benson
They cut her tongue out.  That seems like a message.

DEA Agent Hammond
We can't comment on that.

Cragen
Well, then, maybe you can comment on what Livia Sandoval was doing for the DEA.

DEA Agent Donovan
She was part of an Intel case that intersected with our own investigation.  NYPD loaned her to us.

Benson
What case?

DEA Agent Hammond
We can't say.

Stabler
Well, let's see.  A Colombian undercover with a key of cocaine on her fur coat working for the DEA.  I wonder who she could possibly have been investigating.

Cragen
Let's cut the crap.  An NYPD officer was raped and murdered on your watch.  If you think we'll let this slide, you're dreaming.

DEA Agent Hammond
Hey, nobody wants this guy to skate.  But this is two years of work, hundreds of thousands of dollars invested.

DEA Agent Donovan
Our operatives were introduced into the organization by Livia.  If word gets out she was a cop, they're dead.

Benson
And if we do nothing on a case that's been all over the papers, it's just as conspicuous.

Cragen
Okay, we can play ball here.  We investigate the murder of Livia Tellez, a hooker who was dating a drug dealer.  Nobody has to hear about the DEA or the undercover job.

DEA Agent Donovan
(Looks at Agent Hammond, Hammond nods)
Nothing written regarding DEA involvement or Livia's true identity.  It'd be subject to subpoena by the defense.  And not a word to your ADA.

Stabler
Fine.  You want to give us a place to start?

DEA Agent Hammond
(Looks at Stabler)
No, we don't.
(Looks at Cragen)
You wanted this case, Captain.  You got it.
(Gets up to leave)
Good luck.
 


 

(Cut to Cragen, Benson, Stabler, Fin, and Munch all gathering in a room; Benson is sitting at a table putting some files together)

Cragen
From now on, this room is command central.  Everything pertinent to this case stays in here.  The fewer people who know the particulars, the better.

Fin
We got plenty reasons to be paranoid.  Colombian drug organizations got a lot of people on the payroll.

Cragen
What do we know about the victim's true identity?

Benson
(Hands Cragen a file and then passes around copies of the file to the rest of the detectives as she briefs them)
Livia Sandoval entered this country in 1993 from Medellin, Colombia, at the age of 13.  At 18, she became a citizen.  She attended Hudson University, two years, and then in 2000 she took the police exam, and nailed it.

Munch
We're thinking Intel snapped her up out of the applicant pool to the Police Academy.

Cragen
So, we can assume at some point she made friends with a member of a Colombian organization.

Stabler
We have any idea who she was looking at?

Fin
Could be anyone, anywhere.  In Narcotics, we found Colombian stash houses in Yonkers, Queens, Jersey, Manhattan.

Cragen
You got an old pal in Narcotics you can trust?

Fin
(nods)
I got one guy I came up through the ranks with.  He's as straight as they come.
 


 

(Cut to the Narc walking through the cemetery with a bouquet of flowers in hand.  Meets up with Fin and both walk through the cemetery and talk)

Narc
You got to be kidding me with this Deep Throat crap.

Fin
You got any better ideas?

Narc
Yeah.  Stay the hell away from this case.  These are bad guys.

Fin
It can't be helped.  They dropped a rape victim in my lap.  What'd you find?

Narc
Two-year DEA investigation, dead girl living in Jackson Heights from Medellin.  Sounds like they're looking to extradite.

Fin
Who?

Narc
Cesar Velez.

Fin
I remember that name.  He whacked a judge and a CIA informant in Bogota a couple of years back.

Narc
(nods)
He's a major player.  He supplies 10 percent of the coke coming into the U.S.

Fin
Who handles his business on this side?

Narc
He has some cousins running the wholesale side in Queens, cutting and distributing to the Dominican dealers.  We popped a few on small possession beef, but we can't get a handle on the big stuff.

Fin
Collar anybody that'll cooperate?

Narc
(chuckles)
You looking to steal a snitch from me?

Fin
I just want to talk to him.  Your name never comes up.

Narc
(lays the flowers on a grave)
Dominican dealer, Felix Santos.  He sells up in Washington Heights by the bus terminal.
(takes a file from inside of his coat and hands it to Fin, who puts it in his coat)
He's a punk, but if you bust him for possession, he'll talk.

Fin
You know I owe you.

Narc
You be careful, man.  These guys blow up commercial airliners just to kill one person.  There's no rules.
 


 

(Cut to Munch dropping a can of cola in front of Felix Santos, waking him)

Munch
Here you go, Felix.

Felix Santos
Papa, that's regular.  I said diet.

Fin
You're gonna want the sugar, so drink it.

Felix Santos
Okay.  You people want to treat me like that, that's fine.  I just make my phone call to some very influential peoples, they tell you what my rate is.

Munch
Rate for what?

Felix Santos
My assistance.  And let me tell you, the price is going up by the second.

Fin
Say we don't pop you for possession with intent to distribute.

Felix Santos
Whatever.

Munch
(puts a picture of Livia Sandoval on the table in front of Santos)
You know her?

Felix Santos
Yeah.  That's Livia.  (says something in Spanish)

Fin
Why you call her a cream puff?

Felix Santos
Rafael made it up.

Munch
Yeah, well she's dead.  Who's Rafael?

Felix Santos
Rafael Zapata.  Lieutenant for Cesar Velez.

Fin
How did Rafael and Livia know each other?

Felix Santos
She was banging him.  I mean, one of the girls banging him.  Look, I only met her a couple of times.  She was high on everything.  And when she got high, she got mouthy.  Rafael doesn't like that.

Munch
Define “mouthy.”

Felix Santos
I saw them a couple of weeks ago.  She's going on about how Rafael couldn't get it up in the bedroom.  I mean, come on, what kind of stupid girl gonna say that about a man, in front of his friends?

Fin
And what would a man like Rafael do in this situation?

Felix Santos
That time?  Smacked her up good.
 


 

(Cut to Stabler laying pictures of Livia, Rafael, and a mug shot of Rafael on a table)

Stabler
Rafael Zapata Gaviria.  34.  Number one guy in Cesar Velez's organization.
(Lays a picture of Cesar Velez on the table between Rafael's and Felix's mug shots)
Zapata's a Colombian national in this country on a legitimate work visa.

Fin
Purchased for $10,000 in Bogota, most likely.

Stabler
Zapata was arrested twice in Queens for murder and conspiracy to commit murder.  Never indicted.  Seems somebody always conveniently came forward and confessed to the crimes.

Munch
Yeah, somebody with family back in Colombia.  Vellez holds them as collateral.  He could slaughter them at will.  It's a big incentive to do what you're told.

Benson
I ran Zapata's financials.  He's quite the businessman.
(close-up of the file she is holding in her hand)
He owns several cellular phone and pager stores, real estate both here and in Miami, and recently spent $1.5 million on oil drilling equipment.

Fin
Money laundering.  You pay 30 times more than its worth, it looks like a legitimate transaction.

Stabler
The feds have got to have all of this stuff already, so what we need to do is corroborate Santos' statement and tie Zapata to Livia.

Benson
Well, we've got his credit card charges on the day of Livia's murder.  He flew back from Miami on the same flight that she did.  Spent $4000 shopping, going to dinner, and seeing a show.

Fin
That's a lot of cash to spend in one day.  If she was with him, somebody's got to remember.
 
 

CAFÉ ANDRE
107 HUDSON STREET
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23

 

Manager
(walks up to Benson and Stabler with a big smile on his face)
Two for lunch?

(Stabler flashes his badge at him)

Benson
Like to speak with the manager, please.

Manager
That's me.  What about?

Stabler
A customer of yours.  He was here the other night.  Rafael Zapata?

Manager
(smile fades)
I'm sorry, I don't know that person.

Stabler
(pulls a picture of Livia Sandoval out of his coat pocket and shows it to the manager)
We'll keep your name out of this.  Now, was he here with this woman?

Manager
No, he wasn't.

Benson
Look, we can charge you with obstruction, but we don't want to do that.

Manager
Then charge me.  I have a wife and three children.  And I can't help you.
(walks away)

Stabler
Either Zapata paid him real well or scared the piss out of him.

Benson
Or both.
(answers her cell phone)
Benson... &npbs;Agent Donovan, I didn't expect to hear from you.
(hangs up the phone with a surprised and confused look on her face)

Stabler
What's he want?

Benson
(looking up at a building, still with the same look on her face)
A meeting, now.

Stabler
Where?

Benson
(points to the building)
Apparently on the roof across the street.
 


 

(Cut to Benson and Stabler meeting DEA Agent Donovan on the roof)

DEA Agent Donovan
You talked to my informant.

Stabler
Yeah.  We're investigating our rape case, as instructed.

DEA Agent Donovan
Who gave him to you?

Stabler
Oh, so now we're supposed to share information with you because you've been so forthcoming with us?  Screw you.

DEA Agent Donovan
He's working with DEA.  You guys are putting everything in jeopardy.

Benson
Well, then he must be moonlighting with NYPD Narcotics, 'cause that's how we found him.

DEA Agent Donovan
(grows quiet)
You're off him.

Stabler
Oh, yeah?

DEA Agent Donovan
Yeah.  Yeah — nobody from your squad contacts Santos again.  Felix has been apprised of the situation.  We warned you to use caution.

Benson
And we have.  Santos doesn't know that Livia was a cop.  Nobody said a word about DEA.

DEA Agent Donovan
(starts to walk away)
Keep it that way.  We're done.

Stabler
Hey, did you tell Livia to do coke and screw Zapata to make your case or was that her idea?

DEA Agent Donovan
(angrily walks back towards the detectives)
You don't know anything about her.

Stabler
I know you were supposed to protect her, and you let her die!  And I know you feel so guilty that you'd rather let her killer get away with it than think about what you didn't do to help her.

DEA Agent Donovan
I didn't tell her to do drugs.  I didn't tell her to do any of that.  She wanted to nail those guys, she did what she thought she had to do.

Benson
You didn't see how bad it was getting?

DEA Agent Donovan
(obviously feels very guilty over what happened)
She was getting the job done.  I didn't think she was in over her head.  I should have pulled her.  I didn't.  That's my responsibility.  My — my mistake.
(turns and walks away)

Benson
Hey!
(Donovan stops and Benson walks towards him)
We have no intention of taking your case and we realize that other lives are at stake, but we're flying blind here.  If you don't tell us something to implicate Zapata, then we are never gonna make this right.

DEA Agent Donovan
Your M.E. found bits of fiberglass on her body.  Then I know where he killed her.
 


 

(Cut to Benson laying a picture of Zapata's yacht on ADA Cabot's desk)

Benson
Zapata's love boat.  He keeps it in Battery Park.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
(picks up the picture and looks at it)
He must be compensating for something to need a yacht that big.  What's the connection?

Stabler
The M.E. found slivers of fiberglass in the victim's leg.  The hull of that yacht is made of the same material.  We just found out that Zapata owned it.  We didn't know, because all of his assets are held under shell companies.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
How'd you find out?

Benson
Confidential informant.  Now, is that enough for a warrant?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
As long as the informant's reliable.

Stabler
Beyond reproach.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Has he provided accurate information for you in the past?

Benson
No, but the nature of his job puts him in a position to receive sensitive information.  And Alex, we believe him.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Well, that's very comforting.  Now, tell me something that will actually help me get the warrant.

Stabler
Alex, you've got to trust us.
 


 

(Cut to Benson, Stabler, and other cops raiding Zapata's yacht, which is full of people)

Policeman #1
(yelling)
Police!  Put your hands up where I can see them!  Hands, now!

Stabler
(yelling over the music playing in the background)
Rafael Zapata Gaviria!

(Benson walks over and shuts off the music)

Stabler
(yelling)Zapata!

Rafael Zapata
(walks slowly down the stairs with his hands in the air)
I'm Rafael Zapata.  You may put your weapons away.  We are all peaceful here.

Benson
(hands Zapata the warrant)
Zapata, we have a warrant to search this vessel.  
(turns around and starts yelling out orders)
Everybody out now.  Line them up on the docks.
(points to a guy standing behind Zapata and grabs him and hands him over to a policeman standing nearby)
That means you.  Let's go.  Out.

Rafael Zapata
May I ask what this is regarding?  I have nothing to hide.

Stabler
You sure about that?

Rafael Zapata
Law enforcement is always searching my private property.
(hands the warrant back to Stabler)
They never find anything.

Stabler
(takes the warrant and holds it in front of Zapata's face)
This time, you don't know what we're looking for.
(hands it back to Zapata)

(Stabler walks off and Zapata stands there smiling calmly)

(Stabler meets Benson in the bedroom — Benson is pulling the sheets off the bed)

Benson
Smell that?

Stabler
Bleach?

Benson
Yup.

(Benson feels for a wet spot on the mattress and smells bleach)

Stabler
Flip it.

Benson
Okay.

(Benson and Stabler flip the mattress and prop it up against a wall.  Benson and Stabler feel around for a wet spot on the mattress — Benson finds one)

Benson
It's damp here.
(takes a pocket knife and slices open the mattress, which reveals a large blood stain on the inside)

Stabler
The bleach worked on the surface.  It just didn't go deep enough.
(walks out into the main room in the yacht, where Zapata is being guarded by a policeman)
Hey, Rafael Zapata, you're under arrest for the murder of Livia Tellez.
(grabs his arm and pulls him up)
Get up.  Put your hands behind your back.  You're under arrest.

Rafael Zapata
(stunned and angry)
You're making a very big mistake, Detective.

Benson
(cuffing Zapata)
You don't even know how many mistakes you've made.  Let's go.
 


 

(Cut to Zapata, his lawyer, and ADA Cabot in the courtroom)

Court Clerk
Docket ending 644, People v. Rafael Zapata Gaviria.  One count each, murder in the second degree, rape in the first degree.

Lionel Granger
Lionel Granger for the defense, Your Honor.

Judge Petrovsky
How does the defendant plead?

Rafael Zapata
Not guilty.

Judge Petrovsky
Ms. Cabot?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
The defendant is a Colombian national with known ties to major drug organizations.  He has unlimited resources at his disposal and we consider him a flight risk.  We request remand, Your Honor.

Lionel Granger
My client has never been charged with anything related to drug trafficking.  And I consider the People's baseless accusations slanderous and bigoted.

Judge Petrovsky
Noted, Mr. Granger.  But I'd really like to hear your thoughts on the matter of bail.

Lionel Granger
Mr. Zapata is a respected business and family man.  He has no intention of fleeing this jurisdiction and is willing to turn over his passport for the pendency of the case.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
The defendant has among his assets a Gulfstream jet, Your Honor, as well as personal airstrips in the Caribbean and South America.  Turning over his passport is a meaningless gesture.

Lionel Granger
He is blessed with wealth, so he must be guilty?  He has a clean record, Your Honor.

Judge Petrovsky
And his passport won't be the only thing he turns over.  Bail is set at $5 million.  Next case.
(bangs the gavel)

Court Clerk
Docket ending 872, People v. Ruda Clerk.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Lionel.  Zapata still has you on retainer, I see.  That explains the $3,000 suit.  How'd you get the blood out?

Lionel Granger
(looking very arrogant)
My wife bought me this suit.  Everybody deserves a defense, Alex.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
I would believe your idealism if you weren't enjoying yourself so much.

Lionel Granger
I'm just a naturally happy person.
(hands Cabot a motion)

ADA Alexandra Cabot
(grabs it and holds it in front of his face)
What is this?

Lionel Granger
Motion to controvert the search warrant.  And I will enjoy this.
 
 

CHAMBER OF
JUDGE PETROVSKY
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24

 

Lionel Granger
The warrant to search my client's private property was executed based on information received from a confidential informant.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Which is a common occurrence.  It was a warrant you signed yourself, Your Honor.

Judge Petrovsky
Based upon your detectives' affidavit that the informant met the test for reliability.

Lionel Granger
Look, there's no reason to belabor this.  Produce the guy, show me he knows what he's talking about, and I'll be satisfied.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Your Honor, this defeats the entire purpose of the use of CI's.  People v. Goggins: the identity of an informant may be kept confidential to protect both the flow of information and the safety of the informant.

Lionel Granger
How do we even know this person exists?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Well, let's start with the fact that the information was accurate.

Judge Petrovsky
That doesn't prove the informant's legal veracity and you know that, Ms. Cabot.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
The forensic evidence supported the CI's statement.

Lionel Granger
A couple pieces of fiberglass?  Do you know how many things are made out of fiberglass?  She could have been killed in a Corvette.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
The fibers matched the hull of Mr. Zapata's yacht.

Lionel Granger
I can show you 10 yachts in that marina made of the same material.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
But you can't show me the mattress soaked in the victim's blood.  That possession is unique to your client.

Lionel Granger
This person knew the location of a homicide.  That's it.  For all we know, the so-called informant could have committed the murder himself.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Your Honor, I hope you can see this for what it is.  A scare tactic to intimidate an informant.

Judge Petrovsky
I'm ordering a Darden hearing.  Ms. Cabot, you are to produce the informant, and I will interview him in camera.  And if I find that he meets the test for reliability, the evidence from the search stays.
 


 

(Cut to Cabot talking to Benson and Stabler in the squad room)

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Your informant would only have to talk to the judge in chambers.  No one else would be present.

Stabler
No good, Alex.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Elliot, it's going to have to be.  I put my neck on the line for you two people.  I would like it back.

Benson
He could lose his job.  Worst case, he could get killed.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Well, he should've thought about that before he talked to you.  Who is he?!
 
 

DRUG ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATION
NEW YORK FIELD OFFICE
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24

 

(DEA Agent Donovan opens a door and joins Cabot in a room)

ADA Alexandra Cabot
(standing and extending her hand to him)
Alex Cabot with the D.A.'s office.

DEA Agent Donovan
(ignores her outstretched hand)
Were you followed?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
I beg your pardon?

DEA Agent Donovan
Did anyone follow you from your office to the DEA?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
I don't believe so, but I can't be sure.

DEA Agent Donovan
Now you're going to tell me that you know all about my job and how you know this is dangerous but, uh, you can protect me.  Is that about right?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
I freely admit I know very little about the dangers of your job.  That doesn't change the fact that you gave information as a confidential informant and now that information has to be verified.  You won't have to testify in open court.

DEA Agent Donovan
The answer's no.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Let me tell you a little bit about my job, Agent Donovan.  After I tell the judge that I cannot produce the informant, she is going to issue a John Doe material witness order.  If I don't give her your name, I will be found in contempt.

DEA Agent Donovan
That's your call, your conscience.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
I can tell you right now, I'm not going to jail for you or for my conscience.

DEA Agent Donovan
Then drop the case.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
I can't.

DEA Agent Donovan
Look, you do what you got to do, Ms. Cabot.  But when things go down, the blood's gonna be on your hands.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
There has to be a way to work this out so that everyone is protected.

DEA Agent Donovan
(shakes his head in disbelief)
You really don't know anything about this, do you?
(walks out of the room)
 


 

(Cut to Cabot in DA Arthur Branch's office)

DA Arthur Branch
Your SVU detectives got you in a real mess, Alexandra.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
They were trying to cooperate with a federal investigation.  They didn't have much of a choice.

DA Arthur Branch
I'm not asking you to defend them.  I'm just trying to figure out how you're gonna get out of it.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
There's nothing to get out of.  Petrovsky will subpoena the DEA agent, the warrant will stand, and Zapata will go away for 25 to life.

DA Arthur Branch
That easy, huh?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Everyone understands the sensitive nature of the DEA investigation.  Petrovsky has no reason to jeopardize that.  All efforts will be made to maintain the witness's confidentiality.

DA Arthur Branch
So you're operating under the theory that if we don't see the immediate threat, then it must not be real.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
I know it's real.  An NYPD office is dead because of it.

DA Arthur Branch
Yes, that's true.  And how many people would you guess know that information now?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
I'm not sure.  A dozen.  Maybe more.

DA Arthur Branch
Yeah, that sounds about right.  Now, you know as well as I do that “confidential” is a relative term directly proportionate to how interesting said confidential information is.  And this is too interesting, Alexandra.  Cut Zapata a deal.
 


 

(Cut to Cabot, Zapata, and his attorney, Lionel Granger discussing a plea bargain)

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Manslaughter, 8 to 10.

Lionel Granger
Pass.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Maybe you should ask your client what he thinks.

Rafael Zapata
I also pass.

Lionel Granger
What are you even bargaining with, Alex?  You don't have a case.  You certainly don't have your alleged informant.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
I will have the informant, once the judge issues her subpoena.

Rafael Zapata
You're assuming that the informant will comply with the judge's request.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
And why wouldn't he, Mr. Zapata?

Rafael Zapata
Who can say why people do what they do?  It's a mystery.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
You don't know who the informant is, so how can you possibly know what he might do?

Rafael Zapata
So you say.

Lionel Granger
Tell you what, you get your informant lined up, I promise we'll take the deal.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Take it now or it's gone.  And for future reference, if your client intimidates the informant in any way, I will have his bail revoked and his ass thrown in Rikers for the duration of the trial.

Rafael Zapata
You can't threaten me, bitch.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
I just did.

Lionel Granger
(gets up to leave)
We're going.

Rafael Zapata
(angrily)
You allow this?  A woman says these things and you do nothing?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
(stands)
Yes, Mr. Zapata.  You will also find that a woman can say whatever she wants to about your performance in the bedroom, and you aren't actually allowed to kill her.

(Zapata leaps up from his chair and lunges at Cabot; Granger pushes the table towards Zapata to block him from Cabot)

Lionel Granger
Let's not do anything stupid.

(door opens and some officers grab Zapata's arms to restrain him)

Lionel Granger
Everything's fine.  Everything's fine...  Okay.  That was fun.  Let's go, Rafael.

(Zapata walks slowly from the room, looking back at Cabot, who is clearly shaken by Zapata's reaction to what she said)
 


 

(Cut to Benson and Stabler walking through the squad room with Cabot)

Stabler
You're out of your mind.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
I was hoping he'd think about that information coming out in open court.

Benson
And he pissed you off.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Yeah, that, too.

Benson
What does Branch think, now that the deal's been shut down?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
We move forward with the trial.  We give the DEA's office fair warning, and they have the opportunity to pull their undercovers if they think it's necessary.

Stabler
You're going to blow a two-year investigation.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
This is the best option of only bad options.  We either prosecute Zapata ourselves or we drop it, give him back his passport, he leaves the country, and the DEA's case is blown anyway.
(cell phone rings, she answers it)
Hello?

Benson
Look, the fact of the matter is that Zapata blew the DEA's investigation wide open when he raped and murdered Livia Sandoval.

Stabler
(agrees)
There you go.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Okay... Bye.
(hangs up her phone)
I just got called to an ex parte meeting in Judge Petrovsky's chambers.

Stabler
What do you think that's about?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Nothing good.  Excuse me.
 


 

(Cut to Cabot knocking on the door to Judge Petrovsky's chambers.  She walks in to see the judge sitting at her desk and three lawyers sitting in front of her)

George Reilly
(sees Cabot and stands to greet her)
ADA Cabot, I'm George Reilly with the DOJ, and this is Daniel Clark and Brian Sullivan with the United States Attorney's Office.  You might be wondering what this is about.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Can I guess?  The federal government is about to steamroll New York.

George Reilly
(reaches into his coat pocket and pulls out a folded piece of paper)
This is a protective order issued by a federal judge in the Southern District of New York State barring Judge Petrovsky from subpoenaing a federal law enforcement agent on the grounds it would jeopardize an ongoing investigation.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
(flips through the order and looks at Judge Petrovsky)
There's nothing we can do about this?

Judge Petrovsky
Not unless you have other evidence to support probable cause, your search is out.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Your Honor, it's —

Judge Petrovsky
I don't like it either, Ms. Cabot.  And Mr. Reilly, I don't ever want this many lawyers in my chambers again.  So next time, leave the dog and pony show at home.

George Reilly
Understood, Your Honor.
(walks out of the office; the two other lawyers follow him)
 


 

(Cut to Benson, Stabler, and Cabot talking about the meeting)

Benson
They can just go over the judge's head, and that's it?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
I'm going to appeal it to the Second Circuit.  Now we're getting into a violation of state's rights.

(DEA Agent Donovan approaches Cabot)

DEA Agent Donovan
Ms. Cabot —

Stabler
I thought you didn't want to show your face around here.

DEA Agent Donovan
We have received a credible threat.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
It didn't come from us.  We have kept your identity confidential.

DEA Agent Donovan
(shakes his head)
The threat was made against you.
 


 

(Cut to Benson, Stabler, Cabot, and Donovan in an interrogation room; Donovan pushes the “play” button on a mini tape recorder)

Man #1
Hey, how's my girlfriend?

Man #2
Good.  Very good.

DEA Agent Donovan
Second guy's an inmate incarcerated at a federal penitentiary in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.  One of Cesar Velez's guys.  This call was recorded six hours ago.  We haven't yet identified the other man.

Man #1
I'm gonna pick her up.  Maybe this week.

Man #2
Alright.  She's living at 235 West, 78th.  Apartment “C” like Charlie.  Gets home around 8:00.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
(stunned)
That's my address.

Man #2
Jogs at six...

Stabler
Son of a bitch.

Man #2
You could go jogging with her.  Central Park.

Man #1
I was thinking I could visit her mother.

Man #2
That's an idea.  Mom lives upstate.  East Amherst —

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Oh, my god.

Man #2
But you should really try to see your girlfriend.  It's important.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
How do they know this?

DEA Agent Donovan
Cesar Velez has a network in the federal prisons.  We're trying to ascertain where the information's coming from.  Have you noticed anyone following you?  Any problems with your telephone service at the office or at your home?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
(in shock)
Uh... N-No, not that I can remember.

Benson
Okay, so as of now, we get a protective detail.  You step foot outside, you have an armed escort.

Stabler
We're gonna have to rig a security system at the office and the apartment.

DEA Agent Donovan
Federal marshal's already lined up to escort you.  Should be here within the hour.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
No, I want to go home now.

Benson
Okay, we'll take you.
 


 

(Cut to Stabler, Benson, and Cabot walking to the car; Donovan exits the building after them)

DEA Agent Donovan
Ms. Cabot!  We're gonna find the guy.  And we'll tie him to Zapata.  He'll go away for life.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Okay.

DEA Agent Donovan
And if we can't, I'll go to your judge.  I'll testify in open court.  So I don't want you to worry.  This is handled.  Got it?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Got it.  Good night.

(Donovan walks toward his car)

Benson
Alex.  Why don't you stay with me tonight until we figure this whole thing out?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
No, it'll be okay.  But thanks.

Stabler
(opening the back door)
Okay, let's do a drive-by first to make sure nothing looks off.(gets into the front seat)

(Donovan's car explodes, sending Cabot and Benson to the ground)
 


 

(Cut to the scene of the explosion, the place is swarming with firefighters, cops, and EMTs; Cabot is sitting in the back of an ambulance, watching the scene)

Benson
Hey.  Come on, let's go.

(Cabot doesn't move)

Benson
Alex, you couldn't have done anything differently.  Donovan made a choice.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
We all did.

DEA Agent Hammond
(walks up to Cabot, clearly upset)
How?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
I — I don't know.

DEA Agent Hammond
You don't know?!  He had two kids.  Did you know that?

Benson
Knock it off.

DEA Agent Hammond
You were careless.  You didn't listen.  Do you get it now?  Is it sinking in?

Stabler
(walks up to Agent Hammond)
Enough.  Enough.
(walks up to Cabot)
You've got to get yourself off this case.  End of story.

DEA Agent Hammond
Oh, you don't have a case.  It blew up with Tim Donovan.
(walks away)
 


 

(Cut to Cabot, Benson, Stabler, Fin, Munch, and Cragen in the squad room; Stabler is reading from a piece of paper and briefing everyone on the explosion)

Stabler
Initial report from the bomb squad.  Turned up evidence of C4 and part of the detonator in the debris field.  They believe that the trigger was rigged to the ignition.  The explosive was placed under the driver's seat.

Cragen
Every bomb-maker has a signature.  FBI lab is running the individual components through their database looking for a match.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
It doesn't matter.  We know who did it.  It's Cesar Velez fixing things for Zapata.  The more important question is, how did Velez know Donovan was the CI?

Munch
Same was he knows where you live and where your mother lives.  He's got the money and the power.

Stabler
And he's not gonna stop until you back off or until you're dead.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
I have a protective detail, my mom has a protective detail.  I'm not backing off.

Benson
Alex, there's no reason for you to die for this case!

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Men like Zapata and Velez live on other people's fear.  It doesn't matter if I try this case or somebody else in my office does.  The intimidation is always there.  So I can either accept it as a part of my job or concede everything.  But I don't want to put any of that on you.  The DA's office has investigators.

Fin
Who are a bunch of punks.  I'm in.

Munch
So am I.

(Benson and Stabler both nod in agreement)

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Okay.  Let's start by dragging in every single guest from Zapata's little boat party.  Somebody knows about Livia's murder.

Cragen
Alex, can I see you in my office?

(Cabot follows Cragen into his office; he closes the door behind them)

Cragen
I figured you were too gung ho to let this die.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Don, I appreciate the concern.

Cragen
(holds a small revolver up for Cabot to see)
My old service revolver.  It's a straight shot.  Won't jam up.  I had the license division expedite a carry permit for you.
(hands the permit to Cabot)

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Without my signature?

(phone rings)

Cragen
Your prints are on file.
(answers the phone)

Cragen
.  Yeah, she's here.  I'll let her know.
(hangs up the phone)
Boss is looking for you.
 


 

(Cut to Cabot knocking on DA Branch's door)

DA Arthur Branch
Come on in.

(Cabot opens the door and lets herself in)

DA Arthur Branch
Your ears still ringing?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Yeah, a little.

DA Arthur Branch
That'll pass.  You know, I had a buddy who did three years in Bogota at the embassy.  There was a time when one police officer got murdered every single day.  Over a two-month period, Pablo Escobar set off nine car bombs.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Well, it's a good thing we live in the United States.

DA Arthur Branch
Yes, it is.  And there are plenty of judges and prosecutors and former law enforcement in this country walking around every day, the rest of their lives, with body guards, because they stood up against a Colombian cartel that will do anything to protect this business.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
That's all the more reason to continue to fight them.

DA Arthur Branch
We've been fighting them since before you were born, Alexandra.  Now, we're going to drop the Zapata case.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Why?  How bad does this have to get?  How many more people have to die?

DA Arthur Branch
From what I hear the feds have a much better case against him then we would ever have now.  And to answer your question, too many people have died already.
 
 

TRIAL PART 46
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 29

 

ADA Alexandra Cabot
At this time, Your Honor, the People are unable to proceed and are asking that the indictment against Rafael Zapata Gaviria be dismissed with leave to re-present.

Judge Petrovsky
The charges are dismissed, Mr. Zapata.  Court is adjourned.
(bangs gavel)

(Zapata smiles and shakes Lionel Granger's hand.  He turns to shake hands and hug the people behind him.  As he goes to leave, two US Marshals stop him)

Federal Marshal
(flashes his badge and begins to cuff a stunned Zapata, and leads him from the courtroom)
US Marshals, Mr. Zapata.  You are under arrest for the murder of a federal agent.  You have the right to remain silent.  Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.  You have the right to speak to an attorney and to have an attorney present during any questioning.  If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you.
 


 

(Cut to Cabot, Benson, Stabler, Fin, and Munch in a bar; Cragen joins them)

Cragen
The FBI connected the car bomb to Zapata.  He's gonna flip on Cesar Velez.  If the DEA can get an indictment, the Colombians will arrest Velez and start the extradition process.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
What does Zapata get for his troubles?

Fin
A reduced sentence and a new identity in Scottsdale, Arizona, probably.

Munch
If he lives that long.
(gets up to leave)
And on that note, I'll say good night.
(turns to Fin)
You have to give me a ride early tomorrow morning.  You need some sleep.

Fin
(gets up to leave)
You need to hire a driver.

Cragen
Good night.

Benson
Night.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Night.

Cragen
(pats Cabot on the arm)
I'll see you tomorrow.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Bye.

Stabler
Look, we had a good run.  Conviction rates are up.  We had to get screwed sometime.

Benson
Cesar Velez can probably do more damage to Zapata now than the justice system ever could.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
It just — I never seems like enough, you know.  The feds will get Zapata for killing Donovan.  But what about Livia Sandoval?  She dies without any justice and we're supposed to be happy about it?  We tell ourselves that we speak for the victims, but we don't.  We can close cases.  But the victims, even if they survive, their lives are ruined.  I just get so sick of it.

Stabler
Alex, we can't always win.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
But that's just it.  Even when we win, we don't.  Come on.  Let's get out of here.

(Cabot, Benson and Stabler all walk out of the bar)

Stabler
Get you a cab?

ADA Alexandra Cabot
No, I'm not far.  I'll walk.  Thanks, though.  Look, I'm sorry I'm such a buzz kill.

Benson
Oh, don't be silly.  It's late.
(a dark SUV drives up next to Cabot, a guy pulls out a gun and starts shooting.  Benson and Stabler drop to the ground)

Stabler
Get down!

Gunman
Go, go, go!

(Stabler gets up and starts running after the SUV; Benson gets up and looks back at Cabot, who is laying on the ground)

Benson
Alex.

(Benson sees that Cabot has been shot and crawls quickly towards her)
No.  No, no, no, no, no, no.  No, no, no.  Somebody call an ambulance!  Call 911 now!  Alex.  It's okay, Alex.  Alex, look at me.
(holds her hand on the wound, blood is quickly seeping through her hand)
It's okay, sweetie.  Stay with me.  Stay with me.  Stay with me, Alex.  They're coming right now.

(Stabler runs back and sees Cabot on the ground)

Benson
You're gonna be okay.  Alex, you're gonna be okay.  Look at me.  You're gonna be just fine.  You're gonna be just fine.  Now, just stay with me.
(Benson turns to look at Stabler, then turns back to Cabot)
Alex, Alex, Alex, Alex.  It's okay.  Look at me.  Look at me.
 
 

SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT SQUADROOM
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 1


 

(The camera pans around the room, zooming in on the detectives' faces — first on Munch, then to Benson.  Benson looks down and the camera follows her gaze.  A black band is covering her badge number.  The camera pans to Fin who looks over at Stabler.  The camera zooms in on a copy of the New York Ledger.  It has a picture of ADA Cabot on the cover with the headline “No leads on slain A.D.A.  Cragen walks out of his office and breaks through the silence)

Cragen
We get a trial date on that Richmond case?

Benson
It's postponed.

Cragen
We're gonna lose that witness.  She was already shaky to begin with.

Stabler
Well, nothing we can do.  You got SVU cases being handled by ADAs from other bureaus.  They don't give a damn.

(a man walks up and hands Cragen a message)

Cragen
(holding up a small piece of paper in his hand)Well, isn't that nice.

Munch
What?

Cragen
Rafael Zapata Gaviria was found dead in a holding cell awaiting a hearing.  No witnesses.

Fin
There goes Velez's extradition.

Munch
I long for the old days when the government would just send in the Delta Force assassination squad.

Cragen
(turns to Benson and Stabler)

DEA Agent Hammond
wants to see you guys tonight.
(hands the piece of paper to Benson)
There's the address.

Stabler
What for?

Cragen
Something about closing out the case.
 


 

(Cut to Benson and Stabler pulling up to the meeting spot, Agent Hammond is there waiting in his car.  He gets out to meet the detectives and they start walking towards a dark SVU.)

Stabler

Nice location.  Convenient.

DEA Agent Hammond

Sorry.  Only way to do this.

Benson

Do what?

DEA Agent Hammond
Wouldn't take no for an answer.  Real pain in the ass, this one.

(a US Marshal opens the back door of the SUV and Cabot steps out; both Benson and Stabler have stunned looks on their faces)

ADA Alexandra Cabot
I am so sorry about all of this.

Benson
(starts to cry)
Your funeral's tomorrow.

DEA Agent Hammond
And you're both expected to attend.  For the time being, Ms. Cabot's better off dead.  If Velez can get to Zapata, he can get to her.

Stabler
Witness protection.

ADA Alexandra Cabot
Until Velez is extradited or otherwise dealt with.

Benson
How long?

(Cabot doesn't know what to say, so she shrugs)

Federal Marshal
We're on the move.  Sorry, folks.  Move them out.

(Cabot gets into the car and takes one last look at Benson and Stabler before the car door is shut.  Benson and Stabler watch in disbelief as the SUV drives away.  They look at each other and then look back at the SUV; scene fades)
