Description

The main focus of the show is a team of detectives who investigate sex crimes; all forms of sexual assault are discussed extensively, and sometimes shown onscreen, though actual rapes are rarely shown in vivid detail. S9E15: a main character is sexually assaulted while undercover. The scene is quite graphic. She experiences flashbacks to the attempted rape for the rest of the season, and the event is occasionally mentioned or alluded to in later seasons. S15E1: the same woman from S9E15 is kidnapped and tortured for several days by a serial killer. He forces her to watch him rape other women, including an underage girl (none of which are shown on-screen) and attempts to rape her, but she manages to escape. S15E19: the man from S15E01 manages to once again kidnap the same woman from that episode. He sexually assaults and attempts to rape her, and threatens to instead rape a young girl if she does not comply. This event along with the one from S15E1 are both discussed heavily throughout Season 15, and are mentioned or discussed occasionally in later seasons.
