5:49 AM. Sunlight is starting to peek in through the blinds as Harper answers some question with, "Near the restaurant where I wait tables." Stabler asks her what Laundromat she uses, and she just exhales deeply and puts her head down on the table. Benson asks if she needs anything; Harper says no.
At 6:13 AM, Benson puts her notebook on the table, announces that they're done, and thanks Harper. Harper runs her hands through her hair, exhales in a way that denotes gratitude, and asks, "What now?" Stabler says they can drive her to a friend or relative's house. Harper doesn't have any family in town, and will go to her boyfriend's place. Benson asks if Harper has called the boyfriend yet. Benson, you've been with this woman non-stop for like six hours. Think before you ask stupid questions. Anyway, Harper didn't call him because "[she doesn't] know what to say."
At 7:01 AM, Benson and Harper arrive at the door to the boyfriend's apartment building. Benson tells her that she's on her way to meet Stabler at Harper's apartment. Harper removes the coat she's wearing, hands it to Benson, and tells Benson to thank Stabler for the coat. No freaking comment. Benson warns Harper that her apartment will be a mess when the cops are done with it, but they'll be done soon. Also, the state will pay for a locksmith to change her locks, which is standard procedure, and a counselor will be calling Harper to set up an appointment. Benson gives Harper her card, writes her pager number on it, and says she's available to talk any time, day or night. Benson then offers to come up with Harper and talk to the boyfriend, but Harper says no. Benson says okay and walks away. She stops and turns around. Harper looks up, smiles at Benson, turns her key in the lock, and opens the door. Benson smiles back and goes on her merry way. Detective and Victim have Bonded. Detective is Emotionally Involved In Case. Detective needs to adopt victim's minimalist approach to makeup.
Cut to a profile shot of Cassidy, standing in Harper's apartment. Benson comes in, putting on gloves, and slows when she sees him. She's kind of annoyed, in addition to being surprised, but sucks it up and says hey. Cassidy's not being overly friendly as he says hey back. Stabler's over by the bed with his tie tucked into his shirt, and explains that he called Cassidy in because he didn't know how long Benson would be.
