She began to speak, "I-it's uhm, it's nothing guys. Just help me get them down please and to a shredder ASAP. Liv trusted Declan and Fin to not say anything but she knew the few others who witnessed the posters were probably already gossiping.
Trying not to let her mind go there, Liv went back to the spot where she dropped her belongings when Fin came up behind her. Tell me, you know you can trust me.
Olivia looked at her longtime friend and decided to tell him the truth. I told her that wasn't true but she's concocted this whole story in her deranged mind.

I'm also sorry for what we're about to walk into," said Rollins as she walked off, leaving a confused Nick behind.

Patton said his cell phone demagnetized his key card and he did not want to go down to the front desk so he asked to enter through her room. He then suggested room service and she said food sounded good but her ordered champagne. She did not want to be rude so she had one glass. He kissed her and she pulled away, reminding him he was a married man and she thought it would be best if they called it a night. He unzipped, shoved his knee between her legs and forced himself inside her.
Then he finished and he went into his room, and told her to clean herself up for the conference tomorrow. She did not call or hotel security, she was embarrassed and ashamed. She finished the champagne and passed out, and a few hours later she fell in the bathroom. In the hospital, she told the nurse she had been raped and she told Benson.
She told Benson at first she did not want to cooperate as she was afraid her career would be over and that no one would believe her. But she is here now; what Patton did to her was a crime and she realized if she did not testify it could happen to someone else and she did not want that on my conscience. Rollins, sitting in the gallery, looks down.
Under cross examination, Buchanan implies that Reese let loose because she was away from home and argues that she never fought back because she left no marks on Patton. She says she froze. He also brings up that she called no one about the attack and reminds her she had finished all the champagne and on top of all the drinks she had at dinner she was so drunk that she took a nasty fall and was found passed out on the bathroom floor. Buchanan says they had to call an ambulance for her and for an ambitious detective that had to be embarrassing for her.
Barba objects, saying Buchanan is harassing her. Reese says she would try to understand the pressure on her. Buchanan suggests there would be more to the story than she is telling you — or less.
Reese says she would investigate but in her case…Buchanan cuts her off and says he will mark that as a yes, adding this may be what Patton did that night. Barba leaps from his chair and objects, and Buchanan withdraws the comment. Benson shakes her head and Rollins looks on in frustration. Reese walks out, leaving Rollins to stare at herself in the mirror. At a later time, Rollins is in the courtroom on the stand, going through her testimony with Barba in a practice run.
She says her sister was facing felony charges and Patton called her into his office so they could fix the problem. She inferred that if she had sex with him, her sister would not be prosecuted. If the judge allows this, she needs to be ready. They go back to her testimony, and she explains at first she did consent to sex with Patton. They met at a hotel and she laid down on the bed and he was drunk and he was grabbing at her and pulling off her clothes.
She asked him to slow down and he got rough with her. He bit her and slapped her and banged her head against the headboard and she was bleeding.
