    CI: A sex club, a porno mag, designer purses, blackmail...and murder!

    The little black book of a porno mag publisher goes missing after the former centerfold who won it at auction is murdered. Photocopies of the book reveal evidence a US Senate candidate took his ex-wife (Rosanna Arquette) to a sex club, even though she didn't want to go. Goren and Eames discover the blackmailer was the club doorman who's just turned up dead. The detectives learn the ex-wife returned to the club without her husband - got it on with everyone - and is now desperate to keep her daughter from knowing the tawdry truth. Carver falsely charges the politician with murder, all part of an elaborate ruse to elicit a confession from the ex in exchange for destroying the evidence.

    After three girls disappear overnight in a city park, a large man is spotted returning stab victim Zoe from the woods. The child tells Benson her sister, Mia, and her friend, Perry, were kidnapped by the supernatural Glasgowman. They had a map to the creature's mansion they got from Perry's babysitter, a graphic artist. Amaro and Rollins find the missing girls, who say Glasgowman bound and stabbed them. It becomes clear that Perry is delusional, convinced her friends to go into the woods, then tried to make a blood sacrifice to Glasgowman.

    L&O: He gets stiff making his wife stiff and boning her frozen body

    Briscoe and Green investigate a socialite who fell into an insulin-induced coma, even though she’s not diabetic. David Moore says he was helping her commit suicide, but the detectives learn the couple are part of a group who get off on a kink called “necrophilia without tears.” Moore injects his wife with insulin to paralyze her so he can have sex with her frozen body.

    McCoy and Carmichael charge the husband with attempted murder, but become suspicious of Mrs. Moore’s step-daughter and her doctor (John Slattery). In a plot to take her fortune, they’d been spiking the insulin with another drug to convince her she was dying and should end her own suffering.

    Lt. Benson and the SVU squad investigate a kidnapping involving the parents of an infant at the heart of a right-to-die case. ADA Barba sympathizes with the mother and does what she's unable to bring herself to do: switch off the baby's life support system. District Attorney Jack McCoy charges him with murder and enlists Barba's replacement, ADA Peter Stone, to prosecute the case. Even though he's acquitted and McCoy seems perfectly fine with letting a baby killer stay on staff, Barba resigns and leaves New York.

    Gunshots ring out after someone heckles the singer at mob-friendly Raimondo's restaurant. Briscoe and Green think a Hollywood producer at a different table was simply caught in the crossfire, but Van Buren says the bullet that killed him was from a different gun. The detectives nab a hitman who took advantage of the commotion to take out the producer. He says he was hired by an author who got stiffed on the movie adaptation of his Raimondo's-inspired book. But McCoy and Southerlyn learn it was Raimondo himself who sought revenge on both the writer and the producer for disrespecting his famous restaurant.

    L&O: The politician's husband was bludgeoned protecting a trans kid

    Cosgrove and Shaw investigate the murder of a right wing congresswoman's husband, a doctor bludgeoned in his home office. The detectives focus on a teenager who'd been secretly visiting the doctor's home. They learn the patient is a trans girl who'd been receiving gender affirming care despite her parents' objections, and Frank and Jalen arrest the dad for murder. His lawyer argues self-defense, and Price and Maroun quarrel about whether the victim should have been treating the 13-year-old without permission. In order to protect the teen from a withering cross-examination, McCoy offers a plea. But the political fallout from the trial might make things less safe for trans kids in the future.

    SVU: It's not the hot teacher! It's the catfishing wrestling coach!

    Nerdy teenager Zach is getting dirty pics and suggestive texts from his English teacher, but vanishes on his way to a secret tryst with her. Benson and Dodds learn Miss Barnap has been giving lessons in lust to some students, but the photos to Zach were actually sent by the school's wrestling coach. The squad later finds the kidnapped boy in the man's remote cabin.  Zach's parents won't let him testify, so Olivia and Mike ask some of the coach's past victims to come forward. But one has a better idea...he gets a videotaped confession from the coach by torturing him to death. Also, Rollins apparently survived childbirth.

Is someone trying to get their own kid off the waitlist and into the school by picking off the other moms and dads? An overbearing matriarch found with the murder weapon would do anything to get her grandson in, but Goren de-deuces she couldn't do it because she can only poop in her home toilet.
