Assisting another LAPD division, Brenda and Major Crimes investigate the murder of Gwyneth Adler, a nurse found drugged and raped in a motel bedroom rented by George Harris, who, at check-in, requested two keys, suggesting he had a partner. In court, Brenda finds herself up against defense attorney Philip Stroh, whom she knows is a serial rapist and murderer. Never able to prove it, her testimony leads to a mistrial with the judge giving the prosecution four weeks to start over again. Harris had been charged with rape the previous year, but the case was dropped when the victim, Nathalie Baldwin, disappeared and couldn't testify in court. Nathalie is now located but just wants to forget about her ordeal. Using Nathalie, Brenda sets up a sting to trap Stroh, but it doesn't quite go as planned, and Brenda is called on the carpet and ordered to leave Stroh alone.
