What happened in the previous episode?
The final episode of Law & Order SVU Season 23 was titled “Confess Your Sins to Be Free.” In the episode, Burton met Benson. But she was still angry and chided him that he had to make amends and apologize to all the women he had hurt.
At church, a woman named Audrey O’Neill came to Dad and confessed that she had been struggling with adultery for some time. During the confession, she also revealed to the Father that she had been a rape victim. Meanwhile, Carisi came to church and found that Audrey was troubled. So she asked the Father about her.
However, he could not reveal the personal confession. Caitlin McKenna, Audrey’s mother, also met Carisi and told him about the rape. He advised her to talk to Captain Benson at SVU. Audrey agreed to talk to the Captain, but she didn’t want her husband to find out.
Towards the end, Carisi went to meet Father Duffy because he was suffering from his own religious crisis. He hoped Duffy could help them. They both knew Father Regis was guilty, but if Duffy kept quiet, Regis would be acquitted and moved, and he would continue to rape. Carisi begged Duffy to search his soul. Are his vows really more important than someone else’s life? Duffy is unable to inform Carisi of his confession. Regis, on the other hand, does not only confess to priests.
