Detectives Stabler (Chris Meloni) and Benson (Mariska Hargitay) follow Cassandra to her favorite local hang out - a swinger's club. Cassandra displays her seductive powers as she tries to woo Stabler, even after she is arrested.

After a surprising turn near the end of the episode, the police discover that Cassandra has been fooling them all along. She is not the victim of a stalker ex-boyfriend - she's been scamming middle-aged men into giving her money, all while she carries on an incestuous relationship with her twin brother.

McGowan is sticking to her famed femme-fatale roles, following her most well-known role as Paige Matthews in the TV series "Charmed."
