Frank is at lunch with Lenny, he tells him that he doesn’t take bribes so if this is going there he wants nothing to do with it. He says Steve is paying for dinner, the NFL wants Frank to be the Senior Vice President of security. Frank is speechless. He asks if he would have to move. Lenny says he would work out of their headquarters in the city, he gave his life to service, and the only person he owns anything to is himself.

Danny and Maria are looking at the red light cam, it shows that the SVU followed the victim from the restaurant where he came off, they think it is a contract killing.

Frank tells his team that he has been offered a job, a good one. He says he is sharing it just in case he accepts it. He has been a long time football fan the perks are just as good as the job. Abigail says rumour has it that Erin is going to make a run for DA. Frank says it has nothing to do with him. She says it has everything to do with him.

Danny is furious, Sean has a black eye and a concussion and he says they could have been having this conversation in the morgue instead of the hospital.
