Through the course of their investigation, Lightman and Torres determine that Zoe’s client was set-up by the girl, whose friends leaked the video of the hookup.

At the end, the girl’s father believes the system is protecting the football player, and decides that someone has to pay. He shoots the prosecutor that dropped the charges against the football player, with whose death the episode ends.
