When the first line of an episode is "Welcome, everyone, to the East River," you know you're in for a crazy episode. Eco-friendly activists find the body of a fifteen year old Nigerian girl, Nikkiel Kwambe and Benson and Stabler are quickly at the scene. The M.E. alerts them that Nikkiel has a circumcision scar and that she's in the country on a short term family visa so the next stop is to her family's address. A girl tries to tell them they'll have to come back later but they hear screaming and Benson and Stabler run towards the screams, only to discover a female circumcision about to be performed. They save the girl from that horror and find out where Nikkiel actually lives. A man claiming to be her husband flees and is caught and they come across a boy in the house wearing a shirt that says Lie or Die across a fake blood splatter.
