'Law & Order: SVU's Latest Case Reminds Benson of a Tough Loss (VIDEO)

Captain Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) doesn't want history to repeat itself on Law & Order: SVU.

In the second episode of Season 22, "Ballad of Dwight and Irina," Officer Katriona "Kat" Azar Tamin (Jamie Gray Hyder) brings a potential domestic violence situation to Benson's attention, and TV Insider has an exclusive sneak peek.

When a boy came in with bruises, he was "evasive," Kat explains, and when the nurse called his mother, she "overheard a domestic situation." While Benson reminds her that that kind of call should be going through the local precinct, Kat reveals, "There's a daughter in the apartment. The nurse is worried about sexual abuse."

Benson lets her go, but tells Detective Amanda Rollins (Kelli Giddish) to go with her: "If it sounds like a situation, you wait for backup."

Watch the clip above to see Rollins explain to Kat just why Benson is being so cautious.
