A brand new episode of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" has aired and Mariska Hargitay delivered, once again, an amazing performance as Olivia Benson.

In the episode titled "Exchange," the team is working on a case that seems like a done deal, but little do they know that there is something much sinister behind it.

It has been reported that the story revolves around a 15-year-old girl named Emilia Barassi, a foreign exchange student from Italy, who gets sexually assaulted inside a taxi.
