And why are they working against the squad?

Adam Bryant

The doctor will be in once again this season on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
B.D. Wong will reprise his role as psychiatrist Dr. George Huang on an episode scheduled to air this November, has learned exclusively. The episode returns to the case from the show's 300th episode, in which Benson (Mariska Hargitay) solved a child abduction that had haunted her for more than a decade.

In the new episode, the perp, Lewis Hodda (guest star Tom Sizemore), is finally going on trial after dozens of delays. During the proceedings, Dr. Huang is called on to testify, but there's just one wrinkle: He's called as a witness for the defense.
