Detective Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) is one of the strongest female characters on television, but not even she can move on seamlessly after the traumatic events of last week's episode.

In this exclusive first look at Wednesday's episode of Law & Order: SVU, Olivia has a run-in with a man on a dark street. And while she doesn't handle it well, the guy who catcalls her handles it even worse. 

In the season 15 premiere, Benson was tortured and beaten by Billy (Pablo Schreiber), but eventually escaped his torment by beating the crap out of him. While she has moved on physically, she obviously is having problems moving on mentally and emotionally.
