The ladies head to a pleasure conference to do some shopping and so that Benson could speak about empowering women through wellness. Benson spoke about how "trama is processed in a sensory way." Meaning when a person is attached they may not remember the event exactly the way it happens. The person may not remember what the attacker looked like or what was wearing. The person may only remember the senses. How the person, sounded, smelled, felt if they where a large boned or small boned.

Everyone's mind works differently and will remember in different ways. That's the message Benson was trying send-off. "Survival takes straight."

When Benson went to confront Bobby about the rape again he stood behind the fact that he did not harm Luna. However, Bobby had a new story for the detectives. He now claims that Luna is stealing from the company and that the night of the so-called rape he went to her room to confront her about it. Instead, Luna got down on her knees and began doing oral on him. Then they start going at it and her assistant comes in, catches them. Then Luna cries rape.

The detectives went to Luna's company to Look further into Bobby's story that Luna was stelling and found a paper trail of unknown sources. When the detectives followed up on them it leads to another rape victim. This time victim was accusing Luna of raping her.

The truth

Who was telling the truth? Got assaulted but who? This was probably one of the most screwed up Special Victims Unit storyline over the past 21 seasons. Luna's employees' set her up for rape. The sent emails, and hush money payments. It got all the way to pretrial until the woman Tisa that accused Luna of raping her broke down on the stand confessing it was Vinay's idea to frame Luna of rape. And Bobby really did rape Luna, but for money.
