On Law & Order: SVU Season 17 Episode 2, Carl Rudnick is arrested for the murders after an extensive manhunt, but convicting him may not be as easy as DA Barba thinks it should be. Rudnick quickly hires two lawyers who aren't above playing dirty, and they work to suggest that almost every witness has an ulterior motive to convict Rudnick of murders that he didn't commit.

Rudnick appears to be winning his case despite the evidence against him, leaving Barba disgusted and frustrated. Desperate for more info after Rudnick's lawyers attempt to make a deal that would allow him to serve little jail time, Barba sends Rollins to prison alone to talk to Yeats again. Yeats correctly deduces something about Rollins that she is not happy about.

While Rollins struggles with her personal dilemma, the trial continues. Rudnick takes the stand and spins a story that makes him sound sympathetic and remorseful to the jury. But then Rollins gets an idea, and she and Sonny find some new evidence at the last minute that allows Barba to get the conviction he seeks.
