"Law and Order: SVU" (Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on NBC) has tapped Scott Bakula for a case filled with twists and turns. In HuffPost TV's exclusive preview above, Detectives Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Rollins (Kelli Giddish) question Bakula's character Kent Webster, a high-powered legal expert, about a woman who claims to have had his child.

The smooth operator has answers for all the questions, but not everything is as it seems. Jessica Hecht and Bijou Phillips also guest star in "Vanity's Bonfire" and Tamara Tunie returns as M.E. Warner.

Here's how NBC describes "Vanity's Bonfire":

A BABY KIDNAPPED FROM A PLAYGROUND LEADS TO A TWISTED CASE OF LIES, BETRAYAL, AND INFIDELITY. The abduction of a baby from a city playground quickly turns into a custody dispute when the kidnapper (guest star Bijou Phillips) swears she is the child’s biological mother. She also claims the father is a high-powered legal expert (guest star Scott Bakula), sending Detectives Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Amaro (Danny Pino) on an investigation that forever changes the lives of two unsuspecting families. Also starring Ice-T (Detective Odafin Tutuola), Dann Florek (Captain Donald Cragen) and Kelli Giddish (Detective Amanda Rollins.) Also guest starring Tamara Tunie and Jessica Hecht.

"Law and Order: SVU" airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
